I executed all my DSDT's and SSDTs with no errors
I can't patch the battery
I need help
I am attaching my ACPI folder
I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
"could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating"
And some other warnings afterwards.
CPU: Intel Skylake 6700HQ 2.6GHz
RAM: 16GB DDR4
2TB HDD + 128GB SSD
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 + Nvidia GTX960m
I'm installing using a 16GB USB3 flash drive on one of HDD volumes (UEFI Mode)
I uploaded the verbose log and clover config.plist
I successfully installed macOS 10.11.6 and Windows 7 Pro SP1 in UEFI mode on the laptop.
I know, there are detailed guides here and on osxlatitude.com but I was not agree with them and carefully check and test every step to tune my Mac.
Intel® Core� i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, speedstep works with Clover default settings
Chipset Intel 7 series, no patches needed
Video: IntelHD4000 or NVS5200M switchable in BIOS, work in both cases
LAN; Intel 82579LM, works with IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.2.1
Audio: IDT 92HD93BXX, works with VoodooHDA 2.9.0.
SDHC reader O2Micro; works with native AppleSDHC.kext with Clover Arbitrary properties.
USB3.0 works natively if not disabled in DSDT
PS2 keyboard and touchpad works with VoodooPS2.
WiFi: Dell Intel WiFi was replaced by Dell DW1520, Broadcom BCM943224HMS. DeviceID=4353
LCD Screen 1366x768
BIOS A12. Initially was A02. Then I flashed A23 and found it is quite bad. The screen is full of artefacts. Flash A12 and all is OK. Not tested other versions.
For some reason BIOS can switched from Intel to Nvidia by itself so I have to do my solution working independent on this state.
It is not working OOB although it has DeviceID known to Apple. The reason is WhiteList in the driver.
I set MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 while the WiFi will work on MacBookAir. I make a patch in Clover.
As well a patch for channels.
I deleted a kext Brcm4331 because it has the same DeviceID. Let kext Brcm4360 to work alone.
In Bios we can set Optimus = Enable/Disable
If Enable then we have two videocards Intel first and Nvidia second. In this case additional SSDT-3.aml will switch off Nvidia.
If Disable then we have only Nvidia card. It will work if Board-ID taken from iMac13,2.
But here there is contradiction with WiFi with required Board-ID from MacBookAir.
So I take MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 which is most close by CPU IvyBridge.
Set BoardID like iMac13,2 to make Nvidia working.
Patch BoardID in Brcm4360 to make WiFi working.
Now I have
and SSDT-3.aml in ACPI\patched folder. This SSDT will switch off Nvidia if Intel card ON.
For Intel graphics there is a patch against 8 apples at start.
No special kexts.
The brightness controlled by keys F1,F2 and slider in Control Panel in both case Intel or Nvidia. Details here #72
DSDT and SSDT
This is very long story and finally I have working sleep in both cases Intel or Nvidia.
I use my HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5.0.
I got monitoring:
GPU main frequency
GPU shader frequency
Battery state % full, time to charged or time to empty.
Battery voltage dinamically.
Battery amperage dynamically. I can see it changes on heavy games.
I like VoodooHDA and have no problems with it.
The sound is clear, loud, and switchable between internal speaker and headphone.
Mic is working.
Just tested with BTFirmwareUpdate.kext and it works in 10.11.6. I not needed it so switched off by wireless switch at right side.
For 10.13.6 there is other kext BRCMInjector.
Keyboard, Touchpad and Touchstick
My config, ACPI files and kexts are in attachment.
Better DSDT in the post #6.
Sleep working even when AC inserted.
Now I have HighSierra and this is my EFI folder
Welcome to discussion!
Ciao ragazzi, ho bisogno di un aiuto per verificare che ho fatto tutto giusto, perché penso che la mx150 non sia effettivamente disabilitata. Ho utilizzato un dsdt fatto da gengik84 per un pc simile al mio.. Al momento penso di avere solo due problemi : la mx150, appunto... E poi il trackpad riesco ad usarlo in modalità advanced da bios proprio grazie al dsdt, però il doppio tap per trascinare oggetti ecc non va... L'ho abilitato anche dal menu accessibilità..
