Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

SSDT method don't work with my laptop. I have the _INI method in the _SB scope.

Read post #74 carefully.

No methods working under osx 10.9.2 even the DSDT method... you know that ?

On the contrary. I know of several examples of people using my method to disable discrete cards on 10.9.2.

 

It is a very detail oriented task, however. One detail wrong, and it won't work... with little indication as to what the mistake is.

Agree, I always use ssdt/dsdt manually patching method and it works on tons of laptops: hp, asus, dell, acer, etc... I only need to repatch them after BIOS update.

 

Also, it's easy: use "iasl -da *.aml", then add _off to _ini.

...

Yes, it is easy in concept. It is the details that trip people up.

 

Details:

- you must find the appropriate _INI method (the _INI on a device related to your discrete card... the one with _OFF)

- older machines do not have _OFF but contain similar methods... you have to search for them (use your brain)

- errors are reduced with 'iasl -da' but you may still have errors... fix them prior to applying patches

- even after your files are patched, errors corrected, if you open the patched/compiled .aml files, your errors may come back. The errors are not real, as they are created by the disassembly process. Always disassemble in a group with 'iasl -da'

- edit the resulting .dsl files, not .aml files when making changes

- save the resulting files as .aml files (format: ACPI Machine Language Binary). Not surprisingly, AppleACPIPlatform does not like loading text files into ACPI.

- if you rename devices in DSDT, you must do the same rename in all SSDTs you plan on loading (eg. GFX0->IGPU, B0D3->HDAU must be done universally)

- SSDTs that contain duplicate method (any duplicate object, actually) definitions will be thrown away (eg. DTGP can be defined only in one place; best not to use DTGP)

- SSDTs must be placed where the bootloader will load them. Chameleon, in Extra: SSDT.aml, SSDT-1.aml, SSDT-2.aml, no gaps in the numbers (Chameleon stops at first file not found... at first gap). Clover, in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched, SSDT.aml, SSDT-? (where ? is a digit), gaps in the numbers allowed.

- you must drop each OEM SSDT you are patching. Best strategy: drop them all, add the ones you need (patched or not patched)

- some people experience problems with sleep/restart/shutdown when the discrete card is left in the off state... call _ON from DSDT _PTS and _OFF from DSDT _WAK. Use External to access the methods from DSDT. You must refer to the actual path (eg. _SB.PCI0.PEGP.PEG0._OFF)

- if the device with _INI in it (eg. PEG0.PEGP) is not active, OS X will not call _INI. An inactive device is one that returns Zero from _STA. Usually points to other issues with DSDT...

- if you upgrade hardware or BIOS, you must repeat the process...

 

 

Having a basic understanding of ACPI, ACPI namespace, how SSDTs are loaded, goes a long way.

 

One way to troubleshoot an issue is to extract all *patched* DSDT/SSDTs *binaries* from your running system (from ioreg). Then disassemble them with 'iasl -da'. If iasl finds errors in loading all your DSDT/SSDTs into a namespace, so will OS X have the same problems.

Just out of interest, and I apologise for off topic, but, does the _ON/_OFF method work for iGPU as well.

I'm pretty sure it is not there at all... Optimus and other dual graphics technologies on PCs (aka. "switching") work by having the discrete card "go through" the integrated chip's framebuffer/hardware. So the IGPU is the conduit for everything going to the display. Turning it off doesn't make any sense because then neither would work.

 

At least that is my basic understanding. I'm a software guy not a hardware guy, so I'm probably leaving out some valuable information or am off on the technical details.

Thanks for info, still off topic,

I have my MB via VGA with iGPU (G1610) and HD7750 via DVI to ONE monitor, just trying to figure out how to switch from VGA to DVI without the manual switch on monitor.

As per my post      VGA and DVI using single monitor    

Just want to know if this is possible with DSDT edit. Any info appreciated.

I don't think you're going to solve that with ACPI. Celeron integrated graphics aren't even supported by OS X. Is there a driver loading for it?

PS0 is for PState, this is just to be sure everything is disabled. I know it's just work with _OFF or just with _PS3 but like that i'm very sure :P

Could you please look at my DSDT and tell me what is wrong?.  First I tried you M_OFF and M_ON method.  Did not work and I looked at your own dsdt with Otimus disabled.  Noticed you are using another technique PINI, I tried that one two with no success.  In the enclosed zip you will find my dsdt; ssdt and ioreg dump.  Do apprecite your help

Thanks

In DSDT, _SB.PCI0.GFX0 is renamed to _SB.PCI0.IGPU, but not in SSDT2.

I see, but the problem is SSDT2 gives lots of compile error!  Is this normal?  Could I please ask you give me some hint, I do not know even where to start.  I wanted to copy paste the errors here are some of the errors!  What i did was use Macaisl to generate the ssdt and compile it and here is the result!

Thanks for your help.

I see, but the problem is SSDT2 gives lots of compile error!  Is this normal?  Could I please ask you give me some hint, I do not know even where to start.  I wanted to copy paste the errors here are some of the errors!  What i did was use Macaisl to generate the ssdt and compile it and here is the result!

Thanks for your help.

Disassemble your SSDT correctly and you likely will not have so many errors... Collect all native DSDT/SSDT, place in single directory, then use 'iasl -da *.aml' in Terminal to disassemble them as a group. Work with the resulting .dsl files.

 

This has been discussed in this thread quite a bit...

Thanks I will do, which compiler you think I should use?  there so many floating around?  A url would be appreciated.

Verify that the code is being executed as you think it should. Use ACPIDebug: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Debug

Hi RehabMan,

I used your ACPIDebug test and here is the result.  It seems it calls _OFF but it never gets back! 

May 20 21:55:13 localhost kernel[0]: ACPIDebug: Version 0.1.0 starting

May 20 21:55:13 localhost kernel[0]: ACPIDebug: "In _INI before call to PINI"

May 20 21:55:13 localhost kernel[0]: ACPIDebug: "Entering PINI"

May 20 21:55:13 localhost kernel[0]: ACPIDebug: "In PINI,  before call to _OFF"

And here is my PINI code:

    Method (PINI, 0, NotSerialized)

    {

        \RMDT.PUSH ("Entering PINI")

        If (CondRefOf (\_SB.PCI0.P0P2.PEGP._OFF))

        {

            \RMDT.PUSH ("In PINI,  before call to _OFF")

            \_SB.PCI0.P0P2.PEGP._OFF (\RMDT.PUSH ("In PINI,  after call to _OFF"))

        }

 

        If (CondRefOf (\_SB.PCI0.P0P2.PEGP._PS3))

        {

            \RMDT.PUSH ("In  PINI, _PS3")

            \_SB.PCI0.P0P2.PEGP._PS3 ()

        }

 

        \RMDT.PUSH ("Exiting PINI")

    }

 

Any thoughts?

can someone help me to patch my DSDT? i use a intel hd 3000 and a nvidia gt610m!

 

when i patch the dsdt with chameleon i got these errors:

This construct...

            \_SB.PCI0.P0P2.PEGP._OFF (\RMDT.PUSH ("In PINI,  after call to _OFF"))
... doesn't make any sense.

 

I'm assuming it is due to incorrect disassembly, not how you wrote it and that you actually wrote:

            \_SB.PCI0.P0P2.PEGP._OFF ()
            \RMDT.PUSH ("In PINI,  after call to _OFF")
In which case... it seems your \_SB.PCI0.POP2.PEGP._OFF is aborting (because we never see 'Exiting PINI'). Add additional traces there to see where/why...

Yes it is the disassembling problem.  My challenge is to get SSDTs compiled...  Even disassembling with -da *.aml leaves errors...  I am working on it, let you know if I ever succeed.

      Hello,
       
      I am a former user of MacBook and Mac mini. Both died. One in 2014 and another last year.  I will think of giving my Hackintosh-compatible laptop to my brother that I purchased years ago, because he wants to play more than one computer, so he is a Twitch/YouTube streamer and a hardcore gamer and I will not need to lend him many times. If he wants, from my former laptop I will take only one 240GB SSD Samsung Evo with installed Arch Linux and leave one 500GB HDD for him. In the future, I will purchase a new Alienware laptop.
       
      As I got newly graduated, I moved to a new super PC with AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700X CPU and with NVIDIA GeForce™ 1660 Ti GPU. More details, you can see my signature below, that provides the complete details. I own an external SSD m.2 2280 with installed Windows 10.
       
      I will reconsider purchasing 4th drive – an external 480GB SSD m.2 2280 SATA WD Green 545MB/s or an external 1TB SSD SATA WD Green 545MB/s – for installing Hackintosh. But purchasing, I need to make sure.
       
      1. Is it worth to install Hackintosh on an external SSD m.2 2280? If I partition two partitions, one for Insansely's MyHack/Chameleon/Clover and another for Hackintosh and my new super-PC boot is natively BIOS and Grub, is it worth? Maybe I will try to install reFind on Arch Linux to replace the Grub if it is worth.
      2. I know that it will run on macOS High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina, but if I need Metal 2 to run the latest version of Sketch (the which I own an original licence) and of other apps the which I own original licences? Is NVIDIA GeForce™ 1660 Ti compatible with Metal 2?
      3. Since it be an external SSD, will I able to run Hackintosh as a portable OS in other computers?

      Olá,
       
      Eu sou um ex-usuário do último computador da Apple – Mac mini – que faleceu no ano passado.
       
      Pensarei em dar meu computador portátil compatível com Hackintosh ao meu irmão que comprei anos atrás (em referência ao tópico «Sou novo ao fórum, já fui um usuário de Hackintosh e ainda pretendo montá-lo», porque ele quer jogar mais de um computador, pois ele é um streamer de Twitch e YouTube e um jogador hardcore, e não precisarei ficando emprestando-lhe muitas vezes.
      Se ele quiser, do meu antigo computador portátil, pegarei apenas um SSD Samsung Evo 860 de 240GB com o Arch Linux instalado e deixarei um HD de 500 GB para ele. No futuro, comprarei um novo laptop Alienware.
       
      Como me formei no início deste ano, mudei-me para um novo supercomputador cujo processador é AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700X e cuja placa de vídeo NVIDIA GeForce ™ 1660 Ti. Há mais detalhes que posso fornecer-lhes na minha assinatura abaixo. Possuo um SSD m.2 2280 externo com o Windows 10 instalado.
       
      Reconsiderarei a compra da quarta unidade – um externo SSD m.2 2280 SATA de 480GB 545MB/s da marca WD Green ou um externo normal SSD SATA de 1TB 545MB/s da marca WD Green – para instalar o Hackintosh. Mas antes de comprá-lo, preciso ter certeza.
       
      1. Vale a pena instalar o Hackintosh num SSD m.2 2280 externo? Se eu criar duas partições, uma para o MyHack/Chameleon/Clover do InsanelyMac e outra para o Hackintosh, e a inicialização do meu supercomputador é nativamente BIOS e Grub, vale a pena? Talvez eu tente instalar o reFind no Arch Linux para substituir o Grub, se valer a pena.
      2. Sei que macOS High Sierra, Mojave e Catalina funciona com o processador AMD Ryzen™, mas se eu precisar do Metal 2 para executar a versão mais recente do Sketch (a qual eu possuo uma licença original) e de outros aplicativos cujos possuo as licenças originais? O NVIDIA GeForce™ 1660 Ti é compatível com o Metal 2?
      3. Como é um SSD externo, poderei executar o Hackintosh como um sistema operativo portátil noutros computadores?

      Hello a few days ago I installed a wireless card to get wifi called: Broadcom DW1820A model: 94350ZAE. Could someone help me to modify my efi folder to let the card work correctly? When I switch on the laptop everything is running ok in verbose mode but when later it appears the Apple logo to finally load everything all the computer get stucked so I can’t do anything (there is only the apple logo and a bar), the only way to use my laptop is disabling the wifi card from bios or using the boot arg: brcmfx_driver=1, and I don’t know why it happens this.
      I tried to follow/use some guides but I can’t fix it, so I need help from a professional of Hackintoshes…
      My laptop is a DELL vostro 5568 8 gb ram, i5 7200 2,4GHz, intel hd graphics 620 and the ssd 250gb.
      Here you can download my efi folder and a IOreg file of my computer
      If you need more information etc tell me.
      I only can upload 10mb and my efi folder is 25mb so I'll upload the most important files.
      Thankyou.

      Salve a tutti,
      ho provato diverse volte ad installare macOS sul mio laptop ma sempre senza successo, non riesco mai ad arrivare nemmeno all'installer!
      Ho tentato ormai diverse configurazioni/driver ma non capisco mai da cosa siano derivanti gli errori o i blocchi che mi trovo davanti e sto quindi cercando aiuto per capire come procedere 
      Nello specifico il config che sto provando ad utilizzare non mi trova per niente la partizione con l'installer, mentre un altro vecchio (presente sempre nella cartella di clover allegata con estensione .orig) si inchioda subito dopo la scelta della partizione di avvio.
      Qualcuno mi sa dare una mano su come superare ciò?
      Grazie in anticipo,
       
      Giacomo
       
       
      P.S. Le mie specifiche sono:
       
      - Modello ASUS N552VW-FI202T
      - Schermo 3840x2160
      - CPU Intel Core i7-6700HQ
      - RAM 16GB ddr4 2400mHz
      - Intel HD Graphics 530 + nVidia 960m 4GB (anche funzionasse solo la Intel sarebbe perfetto)
      - SSD 256GB
      - HDD 1TB

      The laptop in question: Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 (Model: ZQ3)

      The manufacturer specifications:
      Intel Core i5 520M 2.4GHz TurboBoost to 2.93GHz 3MB L3 Cache 14.0" 16:9 HD LED backlit LCD (specifically a AU Optronics AUO313C B140XW03 V1 - Thank you, HWiNFO64 !) with the embedded First Generation Intel HD Graphics IronLake, no nVidia graphics (Dissembling the machine clearly shows where it would be installed for the higher end option) The display resolution issue was resolved by following this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286092-guide-1st-generation-intel-hd-graphics-qeci/ The display - AU Optronics AUO313C B140XW03 V1 - was found to be a LVDS by searching for the Product Specification PDF as, again, Debian did not want to do " sudo intel_reg_dumper " and a lot of hopping from safe boot to regular boot through the GRUB2 and Chameleon bootloaders I found that Alternative 1 and 2 1X works but Alternative 1 gives me some really cool looking unintended gitched after effects "You're weird." I know. 4GB DDR3 Memory [it has been swapped out for the maximum that it can handle of 8GB] 320GB HDD (Western Digital, I wouldn't have it any other way...) The original has been swapped out with a same size to preserve the OEM recovery partitions unfortunately both of them are 5400RPM ("Why don't you go SSD?" I know the technology has become better but I still do not have a whole lot of trust in it - If you want to argue about it, sorry, Imma gonna ignore it. If it works, why change it) DVD-Super Multi DL Drive This fine dime will drive you nuts... there is a designated system managed eject button, much like on an actual Mac, that is next to the second wireless switching button. Do not press eject as the laptop is first booting up unless you want it to lockup before or during the BIOS boot screen "Acer Nplify™ 802.11 b/g/n" 6-cell Li-ion battery VERY NICE - NO MATTER WHAT OS I AM RUNNING, IT... FREAKING... LASTS  
      "Okay... what does it really have?" Well, all of the specifications listed above and then:
      "Atheros" Bluetooth; so says Hardware Vendor Detection from the Acer Support website - Broadcom; so says HWiNFO64 from PortableApps.com And then the sticker on the bottom says Foxconn BCM92046 ! ! ! (MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!! FOXCONN, ATHEROS, OR BROADCOM?!?!?! WHICH IS IT?!) Chicony 1.3M Camera (works no matter what if your into that stuff) LAN by Broadcom (BCM57760) WLAN by Broadcom (BCM943225HM) (No cellular modules are applicable to this model, there is a disabled mini PCI-E socket inside that is only good for a fourth expansion board USB port...) Alcor card reader (registers as a regular USB drive/stick to all operating systems unless you install the drivers in Windows, then it registers as whatever you shoved in there) EGISTEC fingerprint reader where a scroll button would be (works only in Windows after you install it) Synaptics TouchPad - TWO FINGER SCROLLING EVERYWHERE, yes can you tell that I actually do like this function? The Trackpad and Keyboard are handled by AppleACPIPS2Nub and ApplePS2Controller kexts I regretfully obtained mine from the other macx86 [I KNOW! I AM SORRY! I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT EITHER!] I cannot help it if mine is just being really picky (at least I am admitting it, besides, they don't seem too friendly over there, they didn't seem to like the matter I installed 10.6 on a Pentium 4 3.4GHz and on an Atom netbook and the result was them just simply deleting my account [just for me to go back and remake it to dissemble their stuff to see what they stole... again...]) Intel 5 Series Audio but Conexant drivers work in Windows, weird. I use VoodooHDA 2.8.7 in Mac OS, anything older seemed to do NOTHING and a freaking telephone modem by Conexant but the Windows drivers are Liteon Did I mention that this thing is from 2010? "Why do you have such an old outdated-?" Because my work gave it to me for free  
      FakeSMC V6 and Plugins to use HWMonitor 6.16.1372 to its full potential  
      (I also have the HFS+ drivers installed so I can read [only] the files on the Mac partition)
       
      "How is it setup right now?"
      It is multibooted with:
      Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate "That's on its way out very soon!" I have my ways of not being dumb online... I still use Windows XP online (*cough cough* Deepfreeze *cough*) Remix OS, a port of Android-x86 (very discontinued, looking into other versions) Niresh Mac OS X 10.8 with Chameleon "Why?" It's the last version of the big cats. Did you notice that they never did Lynx? Debian Linux KDE   "How did you do all of that?" And with a non-(U)EFI BIOS and no EFI partition, sorry, that is not what this thread is about... it was a metric ton of fun to get to work... LOTS of disk swapping and DBANs... and OSes like to manipulate partitions in each of their own ways and prevent other ones from installing without causing other conflicts like linux making a bunch of partitions because you told the Mac OS installer to format the drive with EFI in mind instead of MBR and so you have Windows, Linux but no Mac because the BIOS is only looking for FOUR partitions only and everything hits the fan including the kitchen sink...  
      "So what are you annoying us for?"
      Good question, because I am usually an introvert and usually just keep looking for answers but I could not find some. Jumping to it...
       
      What does not work and I would like thoughts on Bluetooth does not register, used to on previous installs (sorry, I did not pay attention to see if this was caused by me updating to 10.8.5 but that was necessary for the below functions) (It does not work in Debian either - Ignore) LAN and WLAN  - I have found Kexts (somewhere, I think I just lost them... dang it...) for the WLAN but I have yet to try them, nothing for the LAN I know this is cheating but I read that The NDISulator for FreeBSD (HINT HINT) is a port of NDISwrapper for Linux that runs Windows XP network drivers in Linux or BSD Brightness controls work from the middle down on the "Sun" brightness overlay, I got this far from following this: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/ but I am kind of thinking of trying: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/?do=findComment&comment=2214344 . My "magic number" is: 0xF        I used DSDTEditor in Windows, since I figured all the drivers are loaded, to extract the DSDT and compile something that somewhat works... Wake from sleep issue - I tried the above guide for that but I get no backlight and I can see that the cursor in the password field is not flashing when I use an external light source, but it will reboot when I press Ctrl + Alt + Power "button" (it is actually a slider) and then also clear my freaking CMOS right down to the clock... yeah I have the ACPI fix implmented and it usually works... DVD Player.app reports that no viable vidoe device was found (personally I don't care about the DVD Player.app problem, just wanted to put that out there for the heck of it)  
      Likely causes of: Bluetooth (BCM92046), WIFI (BCM943225HM) - So, I USED TO be able to turn on the WIFI from within Windows then reboot into Mac OS and have it work but I noticed recently that the indicator light for them extinguishes BEFORE it reboots now. When Windows or Android load, it lights up-- "No... really, captain obvious?!" --anyways working "No really Sherlock!" so OBVIOUSLY, the OS has to activate them... and preferably ignore the wireless switching button For the WIFI module, if you omit the 9 and HM in a search, results appear! Brightness - Will get reset to full "Bright light! Bright light!" when a "Load System Defaults" is applied from within the BIOS settings but like the WIFI and Bluetooth the OS will forcefully take control of it LAN (BCM57760) - I dunno...  when I search it, nothing comes up...  
      "Dude, what in the world is the point of this machine?" Cross platform software and driver development...
       
      Any help pertaining to the Bluetooth, WIFI, LAN, bizzar brightness and wake after sleep backlight issue would be wonderful... Thank you for your time and I hope that I helped anyone else out with some of their own issues pertaining to the Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 ZQ3 Medium-low model laptop...
