Are you only having the issue with iTunes? mine gets distorted in VLC as well

 

EDIT: seems safari is ok as long as i don't use sound flower and audio midi setup to aggregate the sound (which i really need for OBS Studio).

 

yes, VLC too. 

 

I found a solution: downgrade Clover from 3368 to 3346 . It seems it depends on it !!! 

hi there I will most definitely try the new BIOS as soon as I get back and let you know if it solved the problem with multiple UEFI entries or not

 

F5 BIOS (not beta) does NOT resolve the issue of multiple entries ... sorry to tell you, guys! 

 

The Audio is fixed downgrading Clover to the previous stable version (3346) ... as I posted already. VooDooHDA is certainly a good way too. 

 

 

Cyberdevs? Any hints for the annoying problem of restart instead of shutdown? It's literally driving me crazy ...

Could it depend on the fact that I have NVMeGenericDriver.kext installed in Clover for my Samsung 950 Pro to boot?

 

Does anybody knows how I can log the shutdown process?

Can you give me more details about your hardware? Specially your graphic adapter.

You can find all the logs by using console under applications>utilities simply search for shutdown and see the related logs.

It could be more helpful if you can send me your config.plist so I can take a look

I knew it already... but many thanks for confirming. Issue is NOT resolved yet.

 

So heres a new page I made about it, re-writted everything. It has been passed to Gigabyte representative,

Wow that is a wonderfully detailed bug report, now if only we (programmer in the medical field) only got that type of bug reports i would be in heaven :) usually though its, this thing doesn't work, fix it! :)

thanks for your github, Dreamcat4. I can say that thee problem is there even with an NVMe M.2 SSD as boot disk.

Give the config.plist I posted in the first page a try but just remember to reconfigure it for your hardware I believe it's configured for nVidia graphics adapters, you might also need to edit your memory information under smbios. or just simply study my config plist and see the differences.

My first assumption is that you need to change some of the settings specially under Kernel and Kext Patches check AppleRTC and AsusAICPUPM and see how it works out.

 

if the problem is solved; // then it's ok

else;

if the problem is still there; // then let me know

dreamcat4,

 

If you could get the gigabyte guys to solve the problem with the current EFI problem, all the Hackintosh community will be in your debt! :)

 

Great job man!

I was able to update to 10.11.4. Afterwards I had to set nv_disable=1, install updated nvidia drivers and change my board ID in AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist to none (previously this was not necessary due to a patch that was posted on this thread a while back).

Has anyone tried a fresh install of 10.11.4?

I'm trying but unable to reach installer.

I have a 6700k, gaming 5, gtx 960, BIOS f5.

Have previously installed and had running perfectly 10.11.3

Exactly my problem. Though I do have an ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming board...

I had a perfectly running 10.11.3 and decided to fresh install 10.11.4 - can get to the installer, though no kernel panics...

Fresh install 10.11.4

 

Create install media for new 10.11.4 installer downloaded from app store.

Install clover bootloader to the USB for UEFI booting ( + optional ) which ever options you need for your system.

Replace clover folder with existing clover folder from 10.11.x ( I had to add OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi to boot already had OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi )

I booted with nv_disable=1 and without caches to get to the installer without this option i would get a KP and reboot

The rest follows as per usual with installing clover to SSD and replacing folder with what is on the USB, VoodooHDA 2.8.8-V3 and modifying AppleGraphicsControl.kext for graphics after installing WebDriver-346.03.06f0.

I am now running a fresh install of OSX 10.11.4.

 

Any other info just ask.

Quick question should i use hwsensor or hwsensor3? it seems like its impossible to figure out what the diff is and which one would work best with my setup.

reason I'm looking into it, can't see gpu and cpu fan speeds under hwmonitor 6.19.1406 so i started tracking down the github project and things started escalating from there ;)

Check your FakeSMC.kext and see if it has the following sensors under the plugins folder:

ACPISensors.kext

CPUSensors.kext

GPUSensors.kext

LPCSensors.kext

 

Rehabman's version works fine.

This is the version of my HWMonitor and it's working ok with some minor setbacks Version 6.18-313-g671f31c.1707

As you can see there is no GPU Die or Thermal sensor.

 

I don't use the HWMinotor that much but sometimes it comes handy when need be.

Tried to see if i could install from Pandora's box, omg im never touching that again, had 5 hours of trying to get macos working again, it started to halt at ACPI, had to jump through my thumb drive to remove the fakesmc.kext it had installed in /S/L/E instead of /L/E which i can access from windows. SO i think i will just leave my WORKING system alone! :)

 

EDIT: especially considering the things i actually need from HWSensor is the GPU temp/core speed and mem speed, which are working..

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (March 2020) Updated to Clover r5105 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
        Various Tweaks over Last months The main branch in my github repo is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle seems to work on Sierra, HighSierra, Mojave and Catalina. There is an OpenCore branch in the repo as an alternative to Clover. This guide was developed for a Clover implementation. But the thread has evolved to include discussion of both Clover and Opencore for these systems: T460 and T470 family of ThinkPads.
       
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (the old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.

      BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound (all ports) USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) No problem so far ASUS HyperKit with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB Hardware decoding/encoding on both HD 530 and RX 5700 iGPU QuickSync is used in the default config.plist To use dGPU for hw decode/encode you need to disable iGPU in BIOS and boot with "config_dgpu_enc_dec.plist" (this will use iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS, so you may need to resign in to use your iCloud) System Integrity Protection is Enabled by default. If you need to boot with SIP disabled you may use "config_debug.plist" or disable it manually in Clover settings. If you want Enabled SIP but with allowing unsigned kexts you may boot with "CsrActiveConfig = 0x01"  
      What is not working:

      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia, gibMacOS - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager, gibMacOS) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:
       

       




       
       
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      Installed Catalina 10.15.4 (19E287) Vanilla with OpenCore on my HP Elitedesk 800 G2 Mini.

      Everything is working (Wifi isn't but I'm using Ethernet anyway) but my second display.

      I'm trying to get them both connected via DisplayPort as the only other output on my computer is VGA.

      I've tried manually setting the framebuffer arguments, but I cannot get it to output to both displays. Yet if I unplug one and restart, it will use the other one just fine.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
