Thanks but exact maker and rom of gtx760 must be added to device-properties.xml ???

 

It's a cosmetic thing (it's unlikely to affect the performance in any way). But yes, it has to be added there.

 

I added Gigabyte to your card maker and 80.04.EA.00.18 to the ROM (though I've got no way of actually knowing which ROM version do you have). If you want, you need to provide more information about your specific card or use Windows and GPU-Z to get an exact ROM version.

Here all spec of my 760:

 

So u can complete editing of my file.

 

 

Edited.

 

As a suggestion, editing that xml is not that hard. Especially after I already added pretty much everything that was important to add. :) Don't be afraid to experiment with it by yourself. Otherwise you will never learn.

 

I don't mind helping you get this done. That's why we're a community. To help each other and learn from each other. But I think it's more important that you learn how to do these things on your own, rather than waiting for someone else to do it for you. And learning from your own mistakes is really one of the best ways to learn. Also, it's not rocket science. Believe me. Anyone can do this. Which is also the purpose of this thread. :) To help people learn how to do this on their own.

 

Now, with this xml done, try to get the rest of the steps done. I'm here to guide you if you need it. But don't be afraid to try. That would be the biggest mistake that you can do.

Is it the same if i ve dsdt?

I ve this error:

 

The result should be the same, yes. But I don't know how to do it via DSDT. Nor is it the purpose of this thread.

 

Can you please upload your hex file, as well? I'll try to take a look.

Now work. I copy hex code in the proper section of clover config, save , re boot, clover boot appear , choose El Capitan, logo Apple present, bar under it only at Half distance. But no boot , black screen

I had to revert changes with boot flags nv_disable=1 to back up my original config.plist , but i do not know if the not successful depended for one my error or for my dsdt!!!

As I said in the first post, I never tried in cooperation with a custom DSDT. I never needed one. It might be the reason why it fails to boot. Try without the DSDT for once. See if it makes a difference. Also, keep a working OS X USB drive close to you in case you need to boot back into the OS.

I've posted this question on the forum as well but I'm asking ....I tried all that arsradu said but nothing has changed.I've got a correctly centred logo with the progress bar under it.....the only problem is that it dies not complete.It goes halfway after which blank screen comes up followed by the login page. Please help.

Could you please, post a video of the issue?

 

It looks like you might have another issue here.

 

Also, please, specify which video card are you using (might help if you could add your hardware information to your signature).

Is it one that has been tested before? Are you using dual-monitors or something? Are you using custom DSDTs?

 

These could all affect the functionality of the second-stage logo. The tutorial is meant to fix (or at least try to fix) a specific issue: no second stage boot logo, while having the loading bar at the bottom left corner of the screen. For other issues, this may or may not work. Most likely it won't work, cause the issue is somewhere else.

My video card is Nvidia GeForce GT 740 ... I don't use two monitors and I don't have a custom dsdt installed ..... I can't upload a video as it's too big so I'm uploading pictures ..... They are in sequence

 

Thanks

I was again trying to do it by your method .... one thing I noticed that the device-properties.xml that is created does not have all the content as in your xml file. I've attached the xml file created my terminal so that u can check it out...

Yes, you need to add that information in order to match your hardware configuration. The part that I highlighted in my example (from line 5-42) is the part that you need to add and then edit to match your actual number of ports and graphics card details. Also, to match your default port (the video port your monitor is connected to). 

 

It would be easier to just copy-paste from the xml attached to the first post and then edit yours according to your ioreg information and graphics card details. Make sure you edit everything correctly, otherwise bad things can happen.

 

Read the tutorial carefully and don't skip any steps. If you have questions, I'll try to answer.  :)

Hey guys

 

Anyone with a QHD monitor (2560x1440) around here? I've got myself one and I can't seem to be able to bring back the Apple logo for the second stage boot. Funny, I know, since I wrote the tutorial. But I tried everything I could think of, and nothing worked so far. Not to mention the low resolution in Clover UI, but that would be pretty much off-topic for this thread.

 

Anyone managed to get everything looking nice with such a display?

Do you use a SSDT at all for your GPU? Maybe I can help.

 

Just post an ioReg, and I will take a look.

Hi Frankiee.

 

No, I don't use any custom DSDT/SSDT for my GPU. Do I need one? For as far as I know, the GTX 650 should be officially supported. 

 

Ioreg I can't provide right now since I'm not at my computer yet, but if you want to check out the ports layout, you have a screenshot on the first page.

 

If it's not enough, let me know and we'll continue this conversation via PM.

 

Thank you very much.

I have the same problem in my desktop in signature, I followed the guide but it doesn't work.

Only with clover injection in config.plist, as described here

Same here, Marco...Same here.

 

For now, I don't really know what's wrong with it. So I don't know how to help you.

 

Right now, I'm trying to make my computer boot correctly with this monitor and the dedicated external graphics card. Now it seems it boots perfectly (I honestly didn't see that coming) with the iGPU (HD 4600). I even don't have that gap between loading the first boot and the second boot. It's all one continuous motion. BUT, the downside right now, is that I don't have acceleration. :( Still working on that.

 

So, when I'll find a solution to this, you can be sure I'll post it here. Right now, we're both struggling with the same thing.

You dont need one as your system seems to run fine without. But you may need this alternate fix for the boot logo? You also may need it for enabling HDMI audio. For making such a DSDT, I need ioReg, port layout is not enough. The path to the device is needed as well.

Ok, let's continue this in private. I'll PM you. If we find a solution that can be somehow applied to a Clover kind of fix, so that it matches this thread's topic, I'll update it accordingly so that people with higher res monitors can also take advantage of it. But I have to warn you: I'm pretty much a DSDT noob.  I'm not afraid to learn. And I'm welcoming it. But please, be aware, and also, please be patient. :)

 

And again, thank you.

      Hi team,
       
      I'm looking for the best route to achieve this upgrade, so I have been stuck with HS since Nvidia drivers stopped being supported on newer MacOS releases. Now I'm having an AMD 5700 xt on the way and want to plan the upgrade properly. I have added some information below and questions that might help with your recommendation.
       
      Current GPU 1080 ti with Nvidia webdrivers installed. So should I uninstall the webdriver before adding the new GPU? Clover is being used and EFI attached. Any kext must be removed? or parameters adjusted MacOS HS 10.13.6, should I upgrade before using the new GPU? CPU: 9900K Motherboard:ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) Dual Monitors I have a Time machine backup, Do you recommend a fresh install? and If I did, will I be able to restore my data/apps as-is?  
      Please let yourself free to explore further aspects to considers.

      Hello,
      1st my laptop spec. 
      CPU - 2.53 GHz Intel Core i3 380m
      RAM - 6 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
      GPU -  1st gen Intel HD Graphics 288 MB
      Laptop - Dell Vostro 3500 series
      BT/WIFI - AzureWave BCM94352HMB
       
      I installed Olarila Mojave 10.14.6 and managed to install 1st gen intel HD graphics but it was bit laggy bcos this gnu doest support metal and its a old machine, so I decided to move to Olarila High Sierra.
      I installed it with most of things working fine expect some issues, for that I want to make SSDT and DSDT to make it run without glitches.
       
      I am atteching my sendme.zip , can some take a look to my current settings and suggest me some changes  
      (Olarila down from few days for me )
       
      Send me MacBook-Pro.zip
