OSX on DELL Vostro 3450 / Inspiron N4110 / XPS L702x UEFI Clover

Because his 14R has pretty much the same Intel Emerald Lake board that Vostro has.

 

UPD:

If yours is Intel-only model too please clarify on what files you are suing and what works for you (state your board number too!), perhaps the table in the original post needs to be updated to reflect more models.

Sorry about the late reply, I've been working on some other stuff and haven't had much time to sit down at this system.

 

It's interesting to me, but the InjectIntel problem was fixed by replacing the EDID in the config.plist for Clover with one I found with DarwinDumper. The EDID is as follows:

00ffffffffffff0030e4e9020000000000140104901f11780ab7a59758568f271f505400000001010101010101010101010101010101581b567e50000e302430350035ae10000019de12569a50001a302430350035ae10000019000000fe0039444d4b32803134305748340a0000000000004131940100000001010a2020007f

I'm not sure what you mean by "board number" (or, if you mean motherboard serial, how I'd get that off of OSX), but I'll look for it in BIOS and update this when I grab that.

 

I still get artifacts, although I don't see "fuzzy squares", per se. More, I see lines that go across the screen that appear to be garbage data from what was previously stored in the display/graphics memory/I don't even know where. They "stick" as though they were just some window, and I'll see them scroll with windows, hide behind windows (yet stay there), go over windows, etc. They can be blocks or lines, they flicker with videos/animations/etc, and they can easily go away just by minimizing and restoring a window, or allowing the system to go into the screensaver. I don't know if this is what's classified as graphics artifacts, but this is what I'm seeing and it seems like not many people see this.

 

Also, I've lately had an issue with what I'd assume is the VoodooPS2Controller.kext. The trackpad will occasionally just shut off. I've tried using the disable/enable trackpad hotkey, and the orange light above the trackpad toggles as such, but the trackpad remains frozen. Sometimes it'll "unstuck" after a little while, but usually I have to cold reboot the system.

 

And to be honest, neither of these issues really bug me as anything more than what I dealt with on other systems with more esoteric OSes, but if I can help work to fix these issues in any way whether they're of my fault or just some odd hardware difference, I'll be glad to help.

The board number can be obtained from Clover (either Options menu or preboot log - will be saved to /EFI/CLOVER/misc if you press F2 in GUI). In the log it appears as follows:

0:100  0:000  Clover revision: 2523  running on Dell System Vostro 3450
0:100  0:000  ... with board 0YW3P2

The EDID issue is to be expected, I didn't think it all the way through. I should exclude hardcoded EDIDs from configs when I next revise the files, because DisplayOVerrides are enough to deal with artifacts. You really need to fine tune your real EDID yourself.. @jkbuha seems to have put up a guide somewhere, but I wasn't lucky enough to stumble upon it. If he points to it here that'd be cool.

 

About touchpad - if the keyboard remains functional then you are probably hitting print screen key by accident, which is tuned to also disable touchpad. See if tapping it brings the thing back to life.

That's because the site I had originally uploaded it to (t**ym*c) subsequently re-indexed and lost my content. Luckliy I had a backup of the post stored as a howto on my laptop, so I've repasted it here for anyone who needs it.

 

Note: this is for the 15z (L511z) but the same method applies for all display overrides.

 

 

Hi all

Having had all the freezing & artifact issues with my Dell XPS 15z (8GB RAM, HD3000 ID: 0126, 1920x1080 LVDS) and having tried all the proposed solutions in this forum (DSDT patching, SMCping, memory removal) but without success, I decided to investigate further and found this topic, courtesy of Micky1979: (external to t**ym*c)

It still didn't solve my problem, but got me thinking as to whether there could be an issue with my LVDS EDID configuration. The reason for my suspicion was that with (i) an external monitor connected, or (ii) with the LVDS rotated to 1080x1920, no issues were encountered. So I replaced my XPS 15z EDID configuration with a quasi-identical XPS 15 EDID as follows:

Original XPS 15z (L511z) EDID:

 

00FFFFFFFFFFFF0006AFED3000000000001401049022137802D1159E59539B271E505400000001010101010101010101010101010101B03680E0703808403064310058C11000001A752480E0703808403064310058C11000001A000000FE00303052344D80423135364857330000000000004122960111000002010A20200030

 

 

Replaced XPS 15 (L502x) EDID:
 

00ffffffffffff0006afed17000000000014010490221378022135ad5037aa2411505400000001010101010101010101010101010101783780ae703832403c30aa0058c11000001a783780ae703832403c30aa0058c11000001a000000fe004b5959564b804231353648573100000000000081029b0101000002010a20200001

 

Using the method described by Micky1979 in his post, adapted from insanelymac's CharredPC's method.

Result: absolutely no freezing or artefacts after having hammered the machine for 72 hours continuously. dmesg is clean (no hangup messages) as well.

What I'd like to know is this:

i) Can someone who is EDID friendly point out what the differences are between my original XPS 15z and the XPS 15 EDID?

ii) When (i) is identified, ca this change be applied to non-dell machines, ie any laptops/pcs which are experiencing hangups?

iii) Is the issue due to an incorrect vendor EDID, or an ultra-sensitive HD3000 kext, or a combination?

This should get us to properly understanding the HD3000 issue once and for all.

Thanks

oh, so it wasn't a guide at all, just an observation.

Basically, your 15z EDID has these standard timings for the panel:

Detailed mode: Clock 140.000 MHz, 344 mm x 193 mm
               1920 1968 2068 2144 hborder 0
               1080 1083 1084 1088 vborder 0
               +hsync -vsync 
Detailed mode: Clock 93.330 MHz, 344 mm x 193 mm
               1920 1968 2068 2144 hborder 0
               1080 1083 1084 1088 vborder 0
               +hsync -vsync 

While L502x has these:

Detailed mode: Clock 142.000 MHz, 344 mm x 193 mm
               1920 1980 2028 2094 hborder 0
               1080 1090 1100 1130 vborder 0
               +hsync -vsync 
Detailed mode: Clock 142.000 MHz, 344 mm x 193 mm
               1920 1980 2028 2094 hborder 0
               1080 1090 1100 1130 vborder 0
               +hsync -vsync 

And I bet this is not the stock L502x EDID, it has been definitely patched before to fix screen tearing and artifacts.

They are essentially same 1080P panels, just slightly different model numbers (yours is AUO Model 30ed, while L502x has AUO Model 17ed).

Yes correct - I had posted how to override the existing settings with a functioning one.

 

That said I'm not sure if the L502x was indeed modded at all (afaik no one who had a standard xps15 ever complained about hd3000 issues) - though why the 30ed would be 2MHz slower than the 17ed is anyone's guess...

The board number can be obtained from Clover (either Options menu or preboot log - will be saved to /EFI/CLOVER/misc if you press F2 in GUI). In the log it appears as follows:

My board ID is 05TM8C.

As far as the EDID goes, I'll have to look into that. Would I be wrong to assume there are programs to help modify one's EDID?

 

About touchpad - if the keyboard remains functional then you are probably hitting print screen key by accident, which is tuned to also disable touchpad. See if tapping it brings the thing back to life.

Ah, that makes sense, thinking back to what would have triggered it. I'll try it out next time it happens (or just try to avoid hitting that key altogether). Thanks!

Yup, got that model in the notes already (post #5 here), just need to make sure I remove the EDIDs from config and we get you a working EDID to fix the screen glitching. 

So far we have 3 possible screens on these laptops (honestly, I though only two were shipped - a glossy and a matte one):

 

- AUO GP84R  - [6af:183c]  (produced late 2009)

- LGD 9DMK2  - [30e4:2e9] (produced early 2010)

- CMO KJ303   - [daf:1464]  (produced early 2011)

 

 

Your screen is LGD Model 2e9 while older revision 14R have AUO Model 183c, so thats why DisplayOverride do not match... nor does my CMO panel EDID matches.

Checking @Zprood's DisplayOverride I can see same tendency as with 15z -> L502x EDID. Here's your LGD versus AUO screen

LGD:
Detailed mode: Clock 70.000 MHz, 309 mm x 174 mm
               1366 1402 1450 1492 hborder 0
                768  771  776  782 vborder 0
               -hsync -vsync 
Detailed mode: Clock 48.300 MHz, 309 mm x 174 mm
               1366 1402 1450 1520 hborder 0
                768  771  776  794 vborder 0
               -hsync -vsync 
 
AUO:
Detailed mode: Clock 69.300 MHz, 309 mm x 173 mm
               1366 1404 1426 1436 hborder 0
                768  771  777  803 vborder 0
               +hsync -vsync 
Detailed mode: Clock 69.300 MHz, 309 mm x 173 mm
               1366 1404 1426 1436 hborder 0

I would only assume that if taking L502x EDID and applying it to 15z works it would work same way with different screen brands of 14R.

Try taking DisplayOverride from14R arhive, rename DisplayVendorID-6af to DisplayVendorID-30e4 and rename DisplayProductID-183c to DisplayProductID-2e9, then install the override into System/Displays/Overrides and take a reboot.

Trying that out now and it seems fine so far, but the artifacts sometimes take a while to show up, so I'll probably update this tomorrow with more news.

 

UPDATE: It didn't work, sadly. Made the screen a bit brighter though! Although I'm not sure if that's a result of the override or some other unassociated element.

tw, in my situation my mainboard model # doesnt read (0FH09V) what i have to do? because Trackpad doesn't work like i expect. can you take a look of my preboot.log to see if everything is ok?

here it is one which edit default value, you can install without modification. What change:

1. enable Fn+F3 to diable trackpad.

2. three fingers assign gesture like: swipe down > mission control(F3), swipe up > show desktop(F5), swipe left and right > back & forward(CMD+[&])

3. Context Key (App windows) > Launchpad

4, double finger click > right mouse click.

.. this plist editing massacre reminds me i have to set up a default dell profile with all the aliases :|

 

 

on a completely unrelated note - i've updated CodecCommander to 2.1.0, though since 10.9.2 is not yet officially out i'm not publishing the compiled kext as behavior may change again.

works for me for the most part now with 2.6.0 AppleHDA from C44 build.

Thanks for testing and feedback. The log is exactly what I expected it to happen and what I'm getting here on my laptop.

I shall note that even though we have dealt with the problem of

AppleHDADriver::runPowerManagmentTimerForEngine(bool*)  

starting at wake and disabling the EngineOutput and EAPD we still have the problem of

AppleHDADriver::setAFGPowerForJackDetection(unsigned int, bool, bool)  

that is messing with jack detection, so plugging in headphones and external mic is not really detected until you do a sleep/wake cycle. I shall see if Jack Presence Detection can be overridden and controlled in some shape of form.

 

Edit:

 

yeah.. just as I though.. i've reverted all the changes to AppleHDA kext that I did before and used the kext (well, layout, platform and pinconfig really!) from the original post.. no jack sense problems now. So I must have messed up somewhere in the patching process, never found the mistake and started looking in completely different place.

yeah, i don't see any logs like:

And new codecommander works well. 

After updating to 10.9.2 build C48 yesterday I'm seeing different behavior in regards to EAPD.

Now it takes only single PIO operation to remain enabled. Sometimes it takes 2 and sometimes 3, so I've disabled the loop timeout if update count is equal to 2 and made it go infinitely... I keep pushing changes to git as I test.

Mind updating to C48 and testing it as well ? You can always remove comment marks from the code if you want it to timeout the loop after 2 PIO operations.

      Hi, I'm trying to install Mac Os Catalina on a HP 550-132NL.
      The system has:
      i7-6700
      RAM 12 GB
      GT 730
      LAN Realtek RTL8161
      ALC3863
       
      It passes the verbose phase but after the Apple logo goes away, it gets stuck on a grey screen and I can only move the pointer.
      Can I try to boot with the iGPU?

      Dear all,
       
      I have a external harddisk about 500GB, I installed the clover into it and the harddisk is GPT format, below is the 3 partitions details:
      FS01: EFI - disk0s1 - fat32
      FS02: install mac  image - disk0s2 -  hfs+
      FS03: install windows 10 - disk0s3 - fat32
       
      I can use this external harddisk to install Mac without issue, I use below steps to install windows 10
      enter the FS03:
      cd to efi/boot/ and excuete bootx64.efi
      after pop up the windows install screen, i click next and it shows error 'A media driver your computer needs is missing...' and the installation can not go any further.
      Firstly I use ultraiso to write the windows 10 image to a flash disk and no issue to start install window 10 so the image is working fine. Since I dont know how to write
      a wiindow installation image into harddisk partition, I used winrar extra all the files into disk0s3, am I missing some steps or actually clover not support to install windows
      by partitions, apprecating any helps.

      Acer Aspire V15 V5-591G - Catalina 10.15.1
      This post will no longer updated, go for the osxlatitude link for further updates
      Original and updated link:
      https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11355-acer-aspire-v-15-v5-591g-catalina-windows-10/
      (Note: mine is 55TU version, but the bootpack will work fine with another versions of 591G, for example: V5-591G-71K2, -764Z, -59PU, etc.)
      Specifications:
      - Motherboard: USOPP_SLS (Skylake-H PCH)
      - BIOS: Insyde Corp. v 1.15
      - CPU: Intel Core i5-6300HQ 2.3 GHz (Skylake)

      - Ethernet: Realtek RTL8168/8111
      - Card Reader: Realtek USB 2.0 Card Reader (USB2.0-CRW)

      - Connectors: 
      1x SD Card Reader 2x USB 3.0 (1x USB Charging), 1x USB 2.0 1x VGA 1x HDMI 1x 3.5mm microphone/audio combined jack connector 1x Ethernet (Rj-45) - Keyboard & Touchpad: Multi-Touch & Multi-gestures ELAN 501 Touchpad, Backlight Keyboard.
      Working:  
      - Wi-Fi (with BCM94352Z)
      - Bluetooth hand-off (With BCM94352Z)
      - Full Graphics enabled on HD 530: ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 (HD 530 Mobile)
      - Display: if default colour profile is corrupted (blue is not actual blue but purplish) Use "Rec. ITU-R BT. 709-5" Color Profile (System Pref. -> Displays -> Color)
      - HDMI & VGA Outputs: AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext Clover patch

      - 3.0 USB (native)
      - Touchpad and Keyboard (ELAN501): Fn keys are good, the weird thing is the Brightness key. On my keyboard it's Pause Break:Br-up, Fn+F12:Br-dwn-> To fix this try Karabiner (VoodoPS2Controller.kext), - for gestures try SmartTouchpad drivers
      - Battery info: Install ACPIBatteryManager.kext with Kext Utility or other installer.
      - Sleep Mode
      - SSD with TRIM enabled (to enable trim, open Terminal and write "sudo trimforce enable")
      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      On Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw to modify System/Library. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!

      I just made a clean install of High Sierra on a 1TB crucial ssd. Installed clover Clover_v2.5k_r5070 into the EFI of this ssd, but when I tried to make it my default boot drive, the clover screen wouldn't come up, and left a black screen.
      I tried using the Olarilia usb drive and clover did the same thing.  The only way I can currently boot is to use my old drive with clover v2.4k_4945 then select  my new drive from the clover menu.   
       
      Do I need to install v2.4k on my new drive or is there a way I can get v2.5k working?
       
      I have a GA-x79-ud5 motherboard, AMD  rx580 graphics card and use a Sony 4k tv as my monitor.
