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 4294

New Shell is able to correctly edit plists. Most important is config.plist. TAB characters converted to double spaces on the fly

Enter Shell

Shell> fs0:

fs0:> cd EFI\CLOVER

fs0:\EFI\CLOVER> edit config.plist

...

Press F2 to save the result

Press F3 to exit from editing

fs0:> exit

you will return to Clover

 

Enjoy!

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.

      Hello! Sorry for the way of writing in English, I'm using google translator.
      I am several days trying to make my Mojave hakintosh work perfectly. However, I have reached a point where I can no longer proceed without help.
      Almost all hardawares were installed and recognized (using the clover). However, still have a panic kernel (capture attached). Every time, when connecting the MAC it restarts 2 or 3 times to be able to show the dekstop and to function normal. I also think that having problem with video graphics sometimes freezes the entire display system if video appears on a web page.
      I've attached a file with used files: clover, bios capture, complete hardware information, error capture(https://1drv.ms/u/s!AvhW45_HBY8zgfsySZPWZ-SZXFiMfA). Can someone help me?
       
      Notebook:
      Mobile DualCore Intel Core i7-3537U, 2000 MHz (20 x 100), 4 threads
      Asus K46CB Series Notebook
      Intel Panther Point HM76, Intel Ivy Bridge-MB
      16269 MB  (DDR3 SDRAM)

      Salve ragazzi, io ho un pc con sopra Windows e Sierra(che ho installato grazie a questo fantastico forum)
      Recenetemte ho avuto problemi con gli aggiornamenti windows 10(Che uso urgentemente per lavoro)
      E girando per i forum di Windows, ho capito che il problema era dato da un "interferenza" di clover di quando windows faceva i soliti riavvi quando aggiorna.
       
      Io volevo chiedere se era possibile selezionare MOMENTANAMENTE Windows come avvio primario e quindi non su clover, una sorta di bypassare clover
      e quindi il pc avvia o riavvia e va subito ad avviare windows senza passare da clover, in modo da fare aggiornare Windows e poi "RIATTIVARE" Clover esattamente come prima
      Esiste un modo di fare ciò senza perdere clover o dati etc? 
      Grazie se risponderete, buona serata ragazzi!

      Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host
      Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. 
       
      The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh.
       
      There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there….
       
      I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg
       
      @colt2 HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware
      @dsmccombs comment on faking Ivybridge Processor
      @E:V:A http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=55572430&postcount=6
      @Tech Reviews video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7X07U63lwg.
      VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX
       
      Requirements
         Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X)    4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X)    Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine    Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34    Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75    16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC  
      Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack
      1.  On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder.
      2.  Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes.  Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete.
       
       
       
      3.  Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script:
      cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4.  At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later.
       
       
      Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox
      1.  Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM.
       

       
      2.  Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version.  I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next...
       

       
      3.  Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next.
       

       
      4.  Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button.
       

       
      5.  For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare.  Click next...
       

       
      6.  For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space).
       

       
      7.  On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger.  When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI.
       

       
      8.  Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings....
         a.  On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?)
       

       
         b.  On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2
       

       
         c.  On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB
       

       
         d.  On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". 
       

       
      Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier...
       

       
         e.  Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings.
       
       
      Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac
      1.  From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 
       

       
      2.  Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter>  after each line.  Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick...

      To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU

      Installation of El Capitan
      We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine....
       



       
      Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer:
      1.  Select language, agree to legal terms
       

       
      2.  Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended.  I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan.
       

       
      3.  Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on.
      4.  After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete.  At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive.  The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive.
      5.  At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout.  You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish…
      6.  Create a User Account and select your Time Zone.  You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple….
      7.  Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop.
       

       
      8.  Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted.  Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). 
       
       
      Customization with VBoxManage
      1.  You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt:
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively.
       
      Update:  For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed...
       
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution)
      eg
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2.  Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen
      VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html.
       
      Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD
      The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite .  Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware.
       
      With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie
       
      To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5...
       

       
      Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above).  Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free .
       

       
      UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51.
      UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365:  For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73.
      UPDATE macOS Mojave 18A391:  For macOS Mojave or High Sierra, use macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 4 of thread.
       
      Good luck and enjoy

      Hi guys, I've been lurking in the shadows for months trying to learn how to hackintosh this laptop.  Perhaps if anyone has the time, I could use some help getting it to install 
       
      Trying to install High Sierra on this Laptop:
       
      Lenovo Ideapad 110-171KB-80VK (2017)
      Intel Core i5 7200U
      Intel HD 620 Graphics
      Resolution: 1600x900
       
      Elan PS2 Track Pad - [ACPI\VEN_ETD&DEV_0675 - system device -PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_9D23&SUBSYS_383117AA&REV_21]
      Realtek Network    - [PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_383317AA&REV_07]
      Realtech audio
       
      SATA Controller    - [PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_9D03&SUBSYS_382F17AA&REV_21]
      USB 3.0 XHC        - [PCI\VEN_808
       
      --- Using Clover *
      --- I'll attach it below.
       
      I can't quite get it to install, and i've been going in circles for months now ...
      I'll attach everything I have so far including, verbose pics, clover preboot, Clover folder, etc.
       
      Here are some photos of the verbose text leading up to the installer, if maybe there is something useful in here?
       

       
       
       
      And now photos of the installer
       
       
       

       
       

       
       
      Above is an image of the Installer log, (the main pop up window loads from about 10 mins and stops arbitrarily at 2 minutes left, every time) of the nearly hundred attempts i have made, this is the final screen i get, pretty much no matter what i do.
      Sometimes the the order of what it says is different , but the main things of interest are:
       
      "Target is not convertible to APFS: This volume is not formatted as Mac OS Extended journaled."
      "Warning: Couldn't find Board ID, Chip ID, & ECID in new namespace, falling back"
      "Unable to get fs for null"
      " NO native mechanism to verify Applediagnostics.chunklist"
      " NO native mechanism to verify Installfa.plist"
      " NO native mechanism to verify Basesystem.dmg"
      " NO native mechanism to verify AppleDiagnostics.dmg"
      " NO native mechanism to verify InstallESD.dmg"
      " NO native mechanism to verify Basesystem.chumklist"
       
      I have tried many many ... many .. different combinations of kexts, drivers, copies of clover, forks of clover - different copies of drivers and kexts from different sources.. including from all the official repositories.
       
      * I am not trying to install with APFS - the drive i am using is a spinning HDD - so i don't understand the first line quote above.
      * I am using a usb2 slot - there is only two on this machine - 1- usb2 and 1- usb3
      * As you'll see in the Clover folder i'm using APFSdriverloader. - so the installer should detect the installer-APFS-thing - and see it should be HFS+ ?? no?
       
      I'll detail the procedures:
       
      I wiped the Target HDD drive with a live linux USB.
      i prepair the USB with Createinstallmedia method, install clover to the EFI on usb, load kexts and drivers (I've been recently attempting with the Plist from a 'certain other site' Ton*****86) As it has the dvmt preallocation patch and other bits - i'm of course open to ANY other files/pLists .. this is just the one i've been experimenting with lately.)
      Add ' -v ' in clover options to see the verbose output
      in the installer (acts sketchy sorta, delayed and sluggish) i use DiskUtility to erase the drive 'Macos extended journaled'
      Make initial selections, agree to license and begin install.
      it proceeds to 2 minutes left every time, and hangs. many times i've left it for hours, and even overnight.
      I'm honestly not kidding, it's nearly 100 times ive' tried this, i've downloaded high sierra from the app store 5 times to rule out that, i've used countless combinations of everything .. i'm almost completely burned out.
       
       
      If anyone can shed some light i'll be VERY thankful!... I'm ready to go in a completely new direction...please please please help
       
      I'll put the Clover in the next post because i ran out of space in this one......
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Here is the latest clover i've been using, with the preboot, and DSDT/SSDT (F2 & F4) in it.
       
      CLOVER-Oct15.zip
       
      Thank you very much for ANY help you can provide
