It is my own wish   B)

 

The task was follow.

My laptop Dell Latitude E6430 can be powered with Optimus enabled or disabled in BIOS. They are two different computers and I want to see in which mode I started before timeout is ended because sometimes it switched despite on my wish.

Now I wrote in config.plist

	<key>GUI</key>
	<dict>
		<key>ShowOptimus</key>
		<true/>

and see Clover GUI as

screenshot25.png

 

The criteria is a number of videocard found.

2 = Embedded Intel + Discrete == "Optimus"  "Intel"

1 = Discrete only == "Discrete"

 

I am not sure if someone else needed this feature so default behaviour to be not show.

Rev 4223
It is accumulated update because I can't commit changes before.
update FakeSMC
move BrandString to be calculated before use
allow StrictHibernate when Fixup used
rename Optimus->Intel as it is more correct
block Dell specific SetVariable

 

In config.plist you may set

	<key>Boot</key>
	<dict>
		<key>HibernationFixup</key>
		<true/>

if you are using Lilu+HibernationFixup.kext

It will allow you to use mode 25.

 

EDITED. Don't bother!

It is calculated automatically.

Rev 4231

P-State generator in Clover will be compatible with some DSDT.

I found in my Dell E6430 follow line

       ^CPU0._PPC = Local0

But it was not possible with current clover generated SSDT because the _PPC was a method.

Now I make it to be the Name for CPU0 and link for others.

    Scope (\_PR.CPU0)
    {
        Name (_PPC, Zero)  // _PPC: Performance Present Capabilities
....

    Scope (\_PR.CPU1)
    {
        Method (_PPC, 0, NotSerialized)  // _PPC: Performance Present Capabilities
        {
            Return (\_PR.CPU0._PPC)
        }

and so on.

XCPM patch will no more be unconditional.

		<key>KernelXCPM</key>
		<true/>

Default value is

It can arise some problems because old revision has default to true.

But many users can't boot at all because of this. Let it be conditional setting from config or from Clover GUI.

Rev 4268
correct MachineSignature before wake from hibernation.

It is attempt to cure an issue at some configurations that boot.efi failed to check

		//
		// check machine signature
		//
		UINT32 machineSignature			= 0;
		if(!EFI_ERROR(AcpiGetMachineSignature(&machineSignature)) && machineSignature != localHeader.MachineSignature)
			try_leave(NOTHING);

The patch will write the MachineSignature from hibernation image into FACS table. But it is wrong for good machines

 

Rev 4270

condition for signature fixup

Now this Signature Fixup will be conditional through config.plist

		<key>SignatureFixup</key>
		<false/>

Rev 4291

if not SignatureFixup, it will be zeroed.

 

Anyway, the Signature must be fixed

If true then the value is from hibernate image

if false then the value is zero and it will be copied by kernel into the image.

Rev 4351, 4355

Additional patches for EDID.

Now config.plist may contain follow EDID section

	<key>Graphics</key>
	<dict>
		<key>EDID</key>
		<dict>
			<key>#Custom</key>
			<data>AP///////wAGECGSAAAAAAASAQOAIRV4CunVmVlTjigmUFQAAAABAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEB3iGgcFCEHzAgIFYAS88QAAAY3iGgcFCEHzAgIFYAS88QAAAAAAAA/gBXNjU3RwAxNTRXUDEKAAAA/gAjMz1IZYSq/wIBCiAgAJo=</data>
			<key>#Inject</key>
			<true/>
			<key>#ProductID</key>
			<string>0x9221</string>
			<key>#VendorID</key>
			<string>0x1006</string>
			<key>#HorizontalSyncPulseWidth</key>
			<integer>100</integer>
			<key>#VideoInputSignal</key>
			<string>0xA5</string>
		</dict>
	</dict>

Custom is EDID obtained or created manually. You mostly don't need do it as Clover usually can obtain it by himself.

Inject=true informs Clover to inject Custom or Discovered EDID into video device properties. You have to set it to true is you do patches.

 ProductID and VendorID - may be you want to mimic your display to be Apple manufactured. But you should know what you do. Making this patch I found that Brightness control stop working. Remove this patch and brightness control is working again!

HorizontalSyncPulseWidth - this patch helps to resolve garbled screen at boot with Intel graphics. Known problem of 8 apples.

I see that the patch is still needed

			<dict>
				<key>Comment</key>
				<string>Patch 8 apples</string>
				<key>Disabled</key>
				<false/>
				<key>Find</key>
				<data>AQAAdRc=</data>
				<key>MatchOS</key>
				<string>10.11</string>
				<key>Name</key>
				<string>IOGraphicsFamily</string>
				<key>Replace</key>
				<data>AQAA6xc=</data>
			</dict>

but this patch alone is not full solution. The apple is broken for a several seconds and then restored.

With new Clover setting HorizontalSyncPulseWidth = 100 there is a full solution. The image is good and not jumped.

 

VideoInputSignal - this is additional patch for the same problem but I found no inluence.

Definition of the value is follow

Bit 7=1

Digital input. If set, the following bit definitions apply:

 

Bits 6–4 Bit depth: 000=undefined, 001=6, 010=8, 011=10, 100=12, 101=14, 110=16 bits per color, 111=reserved Bits 3–0 Video interface: 0000=undefined, 0001=HDMIa, 0010=HDMIb, 0100=MDDI, 0101=DisplayPort

 

My default values for desktop 0x80 (Digital, all undefined), for laptop 0x90 -6bits per color?! - not good.

It seems value 0xA0 will be better if used.

And I don't know interface for intenal screen.

 

Credits. I was informed by Derek about this patch but initially it was wrong (byte 64 while it must be 63+65).

https://github.com/1and1get2/Clover/commit/ee301efdcce8ae1e47be21267490753a0c145c1d

The discussion was at tmx site as well wrong and without result. And I don't know who is initial inventor because in those matter it can't work properly.

NVRAM and other runtime fixes for AptioFix.
 
Runtime code areas are no longer allowed to be relocated by boot.efi like runtime data areas. Runtime methods for NVRAM variables are shimmed to enable writing into runtime code regions during the methods, then disabled upon return. Native NVRAM should work for everyone now. AptioFix2 should be preferred over AptioFix, but you may need to calculate a slide value for now.

Updated built_gcc7.sh to create GCC 7.3 toolchain for use with './ebuild.sh -t GCC53'.

 

Note that latest binutils is 2.30, but due to some unresolved bug, all versions of binutils later than 2.27 cause build failures.

Rev 4427-4429

FixHeaders should be in common ACPI section, it is not DSDT-only fix.

	<key>ACPI</key>
	<dict>
		<key>FixHeaders</key>
		<true/>

The FIX is recommended to all users even if you are not going to fix DSDT. 

Anyway the fix is safe.

 

Old setting inside DSDT fixes remains for backward compatibility but I recommend to exclude it from those section.

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu

      Hey!
      As I have 3 Monitors connected, my RX 570 gets arround 50°C while ideling/ web browsing etc. The problem is, that this temp is apparently just the threshold, when the fans start to spin. So the fans start spinning for a minute then they stop for a while again... This is very annoying for me as the rest of my hackintosh is nearly quiet (SSD, 120mm low RPM cpu fan, nearly silent PSU,...), especially when Im using the pc to revise for school. Does somebody know wether its possible to "change" the threshold till the fans start spinning? Like it would probably not be a problem for the gpu at all, if the temp rises to 55°C but therefore be soundless....

      Cloud Clover Editor allows you to manage Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs everywhere!
       
       
      WEB
      Open Cloud Clover Editor
       
      APP (MacOS - Discontinued)
      Clover flying editor ( Micky1979 )
       
       
       
       
      Sources: https://bitbucket.org/kylon/cloud-clover-editor-cce/overview


      To run CCE at home you will need:
       
      An HTTP server (Apache, Nginx, ...) PHP 5.3.3+ (latest PHP version is always recommended for better performances/security) Sqlite3 PHP extension  
       
      Some Features:
       
      Edit text in tables:
      Editable fields are marked with a text cursor.
      Double click, or tap and hold, to open the inline editor.
      You can now press Enter or click outside to save your changes.
       
       
      Tri-state checkboxes:
      There are 3 possible states for a checkbox: Checked, indeterminate and unchecked.
       
      Checked: Value is true;
      Indeterminate: Value is false;
      Unchecked: Value is not set (ie, removed from plist)
       
      Working with multiple configs:
      The right sidebar is your multitasking menu.
      Use the add button to create a new config and add it to the list.
      You can safely switch between all your configs, no changes will be lost.
      You can mix Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs.


      Config Upgrade feature:
      In the case you are using old configuration options, CCE gives you the ability to automatically upgrade your config.
       
       
      Copy to:
      You can copy patches between your configs (you will love this when you need to copy kernel and kext patches ;D ).
      You will find a yellow copy icon if that field does support the copyTo feature.
       
       
      Ozmosis Mode:
      A new setting, Cloud Clover Editor Mode, is now added in Cloud Clover Editor -> CCE Settings.
      This will let you switch from Clover EFI to Ozmosis mode.
      Changes to your current file will be lost.
       
       
      CCE Bank 2.0:
      Thanks to @cecekpawon for the idea.
       
      CCE Bank is a database where you can save/load Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs.
      You can protect your config from unwanted modifications or make a publicly editable config.
       
      To save a config in CCE Bank you only need to check the "Save to CCE Bank" option.
       
      Tick the box generate a new CID, if you don t have one.
       
      A CID (CCE ID) acts like a container and it is your authentication key.
      You can group multiple configs under the same CID or generate as many CIDs as you like.
       
      Edit Modes:
      Public: Anyone can make modifications, only the owner can change its settings. Private: Only the owner can make modifications and change its settings. MyBank: Only the owner can see this config, make modifications or change its settings.  
      MyBank is your private area.
      Change the 'view mode' to switch between the public bank and your personal bank.
       
      To manage your currently loaded config, go to Cloud Clover Editor -> Open config -> click the settings button.
       
       
      Notes:
      Locked/Private configs are marked with a padlock MyBank configs are only visibile in your private area Only the owner of a locked config can save the modifications in CCE Bank, hower you are free to do whatever you want in CCE and download the modified config If you loose your CID you can just reply or pm me No account is required!  
       
      Main Features:
      Left sidebar does support touch swipe on touch devices.
      No changes will be lost on page reload.

      So I'm finally joining the grown-ups and trying to set up a new(ish) hack. In the past I've used legacy Clover with my old Gigabyte board and thought I knew what I was doing. But I've been trying to get a UEFI Clover-based install to work and it's going nowhere.
       
      My new system (listed as SysB in sig) is a Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H-BK rev1.1 with firmware F6, an i7 4790K CPU and 4x4GB Corsair 1866MHz. I have the firmware settings set as per various guides and thought this should be a pretty painless transition...
       
      I have successfully run the installer for El Cap several times, but can't get the machine to boot reliably - it seems to change behaviour each boot. Sometimes boot hangs at the Gigabyte logo after choosing boot volume via F12, sometimes it boots to clover but displays no bootable drives, sometimes displays ElCap SSD in Clover but wont boot from it with kernel cache error, and occasionally it will boot all the way.
       
      What I'd like to know is:
       
      Should I update the mobo firmware to the latest version? This board has two more recent Bios software downloads, but they wont allow me to drop back to the version currently installed. I'm nervous to update unless this is likely to be the culprit. Is this just a UEFI issue? If the simple answer is just go legacy mode, maybe I should just avoid the issue... FInally, does anyone else have a working clover install on this board they could share with me? I think I've got it set up as it should be but the strange inconsistent boot behaviour makes me wonder... Thanks
