If I remove npci=0x2000, the bootloader hangs at “PCI configuration begin”. If I add npci=0x2000, it hangs at “Previous shutdown cause: 5”. What can I do?By heiza

My motherboard doesn’t have an option for 4G encoding. And boot modes are listed as ”Windows UEFI Mode” and “Other OS”.
Hello. I am often enquired about my Acer Aspire 8942G. So I decided to create a topic about this deal.
I use MBR and Mavericks is installed on the second hard disk, which have two partitions. One with Mavericks, the second with NTFS-partitions.
I prefer to install(restore) mac with the help of R-drive image under Windows. But it don't means that you must do so either. Do as you prefer
Note. Usually people start with Chameleon. You should use only two extra kexts, namely FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManager for the first start.
And use these keys at the Chameleon -v -f GraohicsEnabler=No
Necessary kexts(patched kext and hackintosh kext
Note; S/L/E means System/Library/Extensions I have written it as it occasionally confuses the beginners
Note 2; you can find driver for LAN and sound from previous system here
Graphics, DSDT and FaakeSMC, AppleHDA

Only with this method, "Display Sleep" works(I've already give the DSDT with that)
2) My dsdt is big, and it start up many of the equipment. I think it is enough had so as to improve something else, as it were. But you can suggest to me some correction.
For instance, some optimization and so on
Note, if your Acer doesn't boot with my DSDT, than it happens you use a little bit another model with small distinction, For example another processor such as Core i5 instead of i7. It happens because the addressing differs from mine at one place of the DSDT,
Find and correct it, on your DSDT. If you encounter this problem, write about here if you cannot cope with that on you own.
PS I have the DSDT from Acer Asoire 8942G which has Core i5, but I don't lay it out because it is old a little and I should finish it in this case.
I attached correct the Fake for our laptops, it emulates not only SMC, AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver and ApppleGraphicsPowerManager(correct id) are being put right as well.
It also detects many sensors by means of HWSensors, the other sensors I wasn't be able to make it as it is super very hard but possible. You can read this topic just for the interest
4) See here what patches what made for AppleHDA
Settings of bootloaders. Chameleon, XPC, bareBoot and Clover
You can find settings of bootloader at the folder Extra_files
Note; you must past your serial number. You can use Chameleon Wizaed for it.
Note 2; With Chameleon you should make patch of all kexts manually, in Clover and bareboot these patches are writhen at their settings in order to not repatch drivers after each update.
Though you must replace AppleSmartBatteryManager after each update
Note 3, As you can see at the XPC I use all patches except for Graphics patch. For some reasons, Graphics patch doesn't work at xpc. Hope that developer of this bootloader will solve the problem soon. As a consequence, I make patch of AMD5000Controller manually with the help of hexedit.
That we replace on
These two files are necessary for VoodooPS2Controller, and should be founded in indicated folders
Here is edid, you can use DisplayProductID or DisplayNergeNub, Although being together, they mustn't hinder each other.

Strugle with out-of-work DVDPlayed caused by BatteryKext
1) Glimmer on LDVS
2) Pops durings waking up with AppleHDA, it happens only in Mavericks
3) VoodooSDHC no longer works completely, at the Mavericks. At the Mountain Lion, it works very buggy.
4) Small spam at the kernel log made by the SmartBattery.
5) Some indicators. Indicator of wifi doesn't work completely. Touchpad indicator can be only switched on/off under Windows.
TL:DR; I built a Hackintosh system using the OpenCore Vanilla Desktop Guide (running Catalina 10.15.4) and I use an AMD Ryzen 1600 CPU and Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU. All works well except my displays are very blurry and it feels like I’ll get a headache if I try to look at the screen for very long. The picture quality is noticeably worse than Windows or Linux. What can I do to fix it?
Let me start off by saying that this is my first hackintosh build. I based my build on the Opencore Vanilla Desktop Guide at https://khronokernel-2.gitbook.io/opencore-vanilla-desktop-guide/. I’m running macOS Catalina 10.15.4.
So I finished installing macOS after slowly and carefully taking about 8-10 hours to go through the guide yesterday and make sure I did everything properly. It paid off - it has been solid as a rock. However, there is one problem that is currently bugging me to no end - my displays are very blurry. This seems to be independent of any application or display resolution. My dock icons are blurry, the system text is blurry, app text is blurry (like in Slack, Safari, Notes, etc). This does not occur in Linux or Windows when using the same screens.
Also, as a test, I hooked up my girlfriend’s MacBook Pro to the same two screens, and the monitors are crystal clear again, just like they usually are in Windows. This leads me to think that my EFI may be configured improperly or my system may be missing some software or a kext that enables the displays to show a sharp image. I attached my EFI folder and my config.plist file for reference.

Works great in Windows/Linux) ASUS Prime B350M-A motherboard Samsung PM961 256GB NVMe SSD
Samsung U32J59x (32” @ 3840x2160) ASUS MX279 (27” @ 1920x1080) The blurry issue also occurs when I plug directly into my 58" Samsung 4K TV.
I’ve already tried these steps:
Adjusting monitor “sharpness” settings, totally unbearable at “0” but still looks pretty bad even at “100” Trying a bunch of different resolutions in the “Display” preferences. On the 4k monitor, the only one that looks any better is the 1920x1080p option, but then I have far too little screen space left. Using SwitchResX, no different than using different resolutions in the regular Display preferences Using subpixel antialiasing in the terminal with no noticeable difference, even through reboots Turning on/off AMD FreeSync on my 4K monitor — if I turn on FreeSync, the display lags and stutters, and quality is not any better. Also tried turning on/off “game mode” but that had no difference. Tried switching DisplayPort version between 1.1 and 1.2 in monitor settings (on 4K monitor) Checking my BIOS settings, such as making sure CSM is off, against the OpenCore guide that I used to make sure everything was correct
Does anyone else have some other ideas that could help to correct this issue? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.
I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?
I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.
Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it)
Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version?
If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases
Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?
Will it be better to use OpenCore?
