HELP! My hackintosh won't shutdown

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Yesterday when I shutdown down my hack and it reboots. This never happened before. I asked Google for help and tried a few fixes but none of them worked.

Clear bios settings
Install shutdown fix kexts
Check clover shutdown fix box
Safe mode
boot using old clover backup
Bios Wake on lan disabled(I don't use lan)


Here are my specs:
Os X 10.10.3
Clover bootloader
Mb: Msi x97ac 
Cpu: i7 4790k
Ram: 16gb hyper x 2400mhz
Ssd: Samsung 850 pro 256gb
Graphics: HD4600
Psu: Antec Neoeco 400w
WiFi: bcm94352hmb
The pc can be shutdown without problems in Windows but not in Mac.What I can do now is to unplug the power cord. How can I fix this? This stupid thing has driven me crazy. Please help. :(

You can try add "Shutdown" patch for Clover in your config.plist.

i have checked that "Fix shutdown" box in clover configurator, but it didn't work. Please kindly look into my config.plist and see if the problem can be fixed. Thank you soooo much.

I can't take a look in your config.plist right now, because i'm my job.

 

You need apply AddDTGP too.

Inserts Method (DTGP) into DSDT. It is required for _DSM methods, so if you use some other DSDT fix to inject device properties then you must enable this. No sense to use this method without other fixes.

Nah, it didn't work. I have also applied halt enabler, but it still won't shut down. I will try more different clover options.

EvOReboot.kext does a fantastic job

Just installed it. The kext was loaded but still can't shutdown.

You add -xcpm in boot arguments?

 

Ok, i'm in my home now, so i modified the config.plist for you. ;)

Try this: config.plist.zip

Thanks, but that didn't work. I am currently installing a fresh copy of Os x. Will report later.

Just installed a fresh copy of os x. Still have the problem. I noticed even if i use chimera the pc still can't shutdown. The only difference is the fans will keep spinning but not reboot. I can confirm that my bios setting is correct. 

I can still shutdown this damn thing a week ago. Also, I have checked all the cables. They are properly connected to the motherboard. Maybe apple hacked into my system? I have totally no idea now...

Any solution to this problem?

I think not. I can shut down on mavericks but not yosemite. Weird problem.

In my case, sometimes when I choose restart the machine get stuck like it's going to shut down(power led on, fan on, but no activity), but after some secs it forces shut down itself rather than restart.

Tried RTC fix and fix shutdown v1 and v2, also Clover's shutdown fix. Still, the problem remains.

 

Edit:

I solved mine by applying ASUS and Kernel PM patch in clover
