Thank you again. Another problem that you solved :) Now the Shut Down works perfect.

 

My Hackintosh is almost perfect: Only left Sleep mode. Do you have any idea why it doesn't work?

 

Have a nice day!

I'm glad it solved your problem and you're welcome :)

 

Sleep must work with your Graphic Adapter, there are some known issues with AMD 6xxx and newer versions but as I see you have an EVGA GTX adapter. Try adding the "SlpSmiAtWake" flag and see if it solves your problem.

You can find it under ACPI section on your config.plist.

 

Let me know how it works out.

Great!! Now works perfect! Thank you again.

 

My Mackintosh is at 99% (waiting for the module of Wifi+Blutooth 4.0 for Airdrop)!!!!!!!

 

 

Your thread was really helpful.

 

Have a good weekend!

Hi there!

 

after a slow tuning I have to say that my rig is shutting down properly almost all the times (90% yes, 10% no).

 

But I still have some video constrains and ​I cannot use a multi display configuration:

 

  • no matter what, if CSM is enable in BIOS, and I attach two monitors at Nvidia card I'll got black screen. I can still attach two of them if I already booted with my main display (warm attach). 
  • even if, since El Cap 11.4, HD530 is correctly configured (and I have hw graphic acceleration) when I enable it in BIOS but leave Nvidia as primary display card, I got black screen. Hence I cannot a multi display configuration even using my HD530 put a monitor attached to it.

 

do you have some experiences to share in this regard? 

 

thanks in advance for your help!  :)

Hi,

Welcome back :)

 

what is the model of your nVidia graphic adapter?

 

see this post it might help you out.

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309729-gigabyte-z170x-gaming-7-success-hackintosh/?p=2208643

 

I read the post, but it's not the problem of black screen at boot, for that I have a proper patch in clover. The problem is in multi monitor configurations, both attached to Nvidia card, or one to Nvidia and the other one at HD530. 

 

my card is this one: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5619#kf

Well since I use a dual display rig with AMD graphic adapter and I don't use the Intel HD Graphics and with some tweaks in config.plist I got them both working even when I shutdown the computer (no warm attach).

 

But the tricky part is I have to connect one of my displays to HDMI and the other one is connected to DVI, I tried some other arrangements and it didn't work at all!

 

Send me a copy of your config.plist so I can take a look

I guess you need to add the following flags under Graphics:

 

<key>Graphics</key>
<dict>
<key>DualLink</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>Inject</key>
<dict>
<key>ATI</key>
<false/>
<key>Intel</key>
<true/>
<key>NVidia</key>
<false/>
</dict>
<key>NvidiaGeneric</key>
<true/>
<key>NvidiaSingle</key>
<true/>
<key>VideoPorts</key>
<integer>4</integer>
<key>ig-platform-id</key>
<string>0x19120000</string>

just added those lines but basically it doesn't improve the situation that much: 

 

  • if I put in BIOS:
    • - Primary display: GFX1 (my Nvidia card)
    • - Internal GPU: Enabled

I got black screen after boot. Even with only 1 monitor.

 

 

  • if I put in BIOS:
    • - Primary display: GFX1 (my Nvidia card)
    • - Internal GPU: Auto

I got to the login screen properly and I can use a second monitor attached to Nvidia card. There is no signal of life from Intel HD530, neither in System report nor if I attach a monitor to it. 

 

With two monitors though the system show a more prominent tendency not to shutdown properly and to restart instead.

Do you know whether our motherboard is one of those that need 64bit driver for support of NVRAM variables needed by MacOSX?

 

do you have this driver installed?

I don't have this driver installed.

 

These are the drivers that are installed in my system in drivers64UEFI:

FSInject-64.efi

HFSPlus.efi
OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi
OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi

If you go here, you will see that this particular motherboard does not pass the Nvram test. At least not mine! Therefore I've installed the Clover NVRAM emulation driver, and things has been stabilised for me.

Hello again!!

 

Finally got my Wifi+BT card (is from a iMac) and it works perfect except AirDrop.

Hi,

In my experience when AirDrop doesn't work when you try to send files to another computer it's either because of an old WiFi card which you need to click on AirDrop and select look for older Macs or you need to open AirDrop on both computers which you are trying to share files with and you need to make sure file sharing is available for everyone Or just add the Contact card in the address book in case you only want to gave permission to specific people you want to share files with.

Sadly I couldnt make it work. But I think is something related with my ID (my Mac mini Airdrop doesn't work)

 

Have a good day!

Hi,

I am attempting to get my GA-Z170MX-Gaming5 up and running.

 

In addition to the above MB (BIOS version F5e) - it has: Core i7-6700K, EVGA GTX 950,  Samsung 850 EVO 500GB and 2 Seagate ST3000DM001 drives

 

I am assuming I can't simply copy the contents of your clover config over mine - that I will need to edit mine based on yours - via Clover Configurator?

I *do* have the NVidia Web Drivers installed, and I have voodoohda installed for sound - not that I have it configured to use it yet though.

*Gah* I can't figure out how to reply to two different posts w/out my 2nd reply attempt combining both replies!

 

I am attempting to reply to http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309352-el-capitan-on-ga-z170x-gaming-5/?p=2218441

 

Each time I quoted it - I then attempted to reply and it merged the reply with my previous post.

 

Anyhow - my reply/question for the above post:

 

 

Savage001 originally said: For me to fix the black screen with web drivers i had to edit a kext. Copy it from system -> library -> extensions -> AppleGraphicsControl.kext to the desktop then right click it then show package contents, open contents folder then plugins folder then right click AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext to show contents, open contents folder then right click on info.plist and open with "other" and choose textedit, scroll down to<key>ConfigMap</key> and find your "mac" key and change the <string> to none like this

Before

<key>Mac-42FD25EABCABB274</key>

<string>Config2</string>

 

After

<key>Mac-42FD25EABCABB274</key>

<string>none</string>

 

Reinstall kext with Kext Utility then reboot with nvda_drv=1

 

Give that a try 

 

 

(sorry for butchering the quoting mechanism)

 

And my response/query:

 

Hi,

when I have attempted to switch to the NVidia Web Drivers - my monitor simply goes to sleep - so I am *assuming* that this is the "Black Screen" being referred to here and in later posts after your reply.

 

I followed your instructions and unfortunately, in my 'ConfigMap' section, I have a TON of entries which are similar to the ones you suggest modifying, and a bunch that already have a value of "none'

 

I am 99% sure I opened up the correct file with the editor, but I'm pretty puzzled why I have so many entries.  Could it be the result of my many unsuccessful attempts to get things configured?

 

Here is the relevant section from my info.plist:

<key>ConfigMap</key>
<dict>
<key>Mac-00BE6ED71E35EB86</key>

I was hoping there would be ONE entry 'Mac-...' which I'd then modify - not a bunch...

 

Suggestions?

 

*GAH*

 

Am I only allowed one reply?  The forum keeps mashing my replies together :-(

Hi an welcome,

 

In order to get the nVidia drivers to work you need to set the following flag in you config.plist

nvda_drv=1 true and you need to follow what savage001 said and change the config2 to config none as instructed.

So - change all 5 'Config2' to 'none'?

That is what was confusing to me, I was expecting ONE entry that needed changed, the instructions didn't suggest there would be multiple ones.

I'll change 'em all and see what happens....

You only need to change the entry that matched your smbios. And it's not nada_drv=1 it's nvda_drv=1.

      Hello everyone, I've an Acer Aspire E5-574 running Mojave at last update, everything is fine, except by the laggy mouse, as the attached, when the system needs the graphic card (Intel HD 520) it's generates a lag.

      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)

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (November 2019) Updated to Clover r5099 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added acidanthera VoodooPS2 kext v2.0.4 moved the older 1.9 to the Misc Folder as an option.
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      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.

      First i will give you information about my specification
       
      Processor : Intel Core i7 6700
      Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3
      RAM : Team DDR4 8GB (2X4GB) 2133Mhz - up to 3000Mhz at XMP Profile
      Graphics Card : Palit Jetstream GTX960 4GB DDR5
      SSD and HDD : Fujitsu F200 for System + 500GB Seagate connect with add on PCI-e to Sata 3 Asmedia ASM1062 Chipset
      Other harddrive : 1 Natno SSD, 2x 2TB Seagate, 2x 500GB Seagate connect with internal SATA Controller Interface
      Wifi Card : TP-Link TL-WDN4800
      Monitor : 2x Asus VN248H (HDMI and Display Port with Converter)
      I need 2 new hardware to support this
      a. PCIe to Sata with 2 Ports Sata (because i use 2 important storage)
      b. PCI to USB 2.0 with NEC Chipset (i Plug USB Keyboard, Mouse and USB Installer here)
       
      My steps :
      1. Make USB installer El Capitan 10.11 Public Release with CreateinstallMedia method
      2. Install Clover Rev 3280 into it
      3. Basic configuration for BIOS (Disable serial port at IO section in bios, Boot with UEFI Mode,  Primary Graphics set to PCI-E, Sata Controller = AHCI, CSM Support = Disable, OS Mode = Windows 8/10 WHQL)
      4. My Masic Configuration for Config.plist (open with Clover Configurator Version 4.24)
          ACPI = tick FixHpet, AddDTGP, FixHDA, New Way, Delete Unused, AddHDMI, Drop OEM_DSM of HDA and SATA.
          Bootflag = nv_disable=1 -v dart=0
          Devices = USB Inject, Add Clock ID, Fix OwnerShip, Audio Layout = 2, Reset HDA
          Graphics = There is no change here
          Kernel and Kext Patches = FakeCPUIID 0x00306F2 and tick KernelHasswellE (Please anybody,, i dont want use this. Latest El Capitan 10.11.1 Beta is supported native to this processor right. Help me with kernel so i don't need to use fakeCpuIID again) I I use Clover R3292 and i don't need to use FakeCPUID again,, just tick Kernel Haswell-E and it will boot. So you need to use Clover R3292 and later
          Rt Variables = BooterConfig 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig 0x067
          SMBios = First i use SMBios MacPro 6.1 but later i just need to use iMac17,1 because My System build is identical with iMac17,1 hardware (SkyLake System)
          System Parameters = Inject Kexts Detect and Tick Inject System ID
      5. Boot from Your USB Installer and do everything like normal until you get into desktop
      6. Install Kext Utility,  
      7. Copy "AppleGraphicsControl.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to Desktop and then edit info.plist at "AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist" and look at OKitPersonalities->AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy->ConfigMap and change "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - Config1" to "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - None". Reinstall this kext with Kext Utility.
       
      Note : the reason you need to "Config1" of "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6" because it's BOARD-ID for MacPro6,1. so if you use SMBios of iMac17,1 then Check your Board-Id (you can use Clover Configurator and open your config.plist and see your Board-id at SMBios Section) and change "Config2/Config1" to "none". Now i use "Mac-DB15BD556843C820" as my Board-ID because i use iMac17,1 SMBios  so i need to change ConfigMap that related to it 
       
      8. Install Nvidia Web Driver version 346.03.02f02, and restart.
      9. Change bootflag "nv_disable=1" to "nvda_drv=1"
      10. After you get into desktop, get Latest Beta Build 10.11.1 Seed. You need to change seed catalog update first (google it).
      11. Do update to 10.11.1 Build 15B38b and restart
      12. Boot again with bootflag "nv_disable=1", and copy "NVDAStartupWeb.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to desktop. And open info.plist at "NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist". Look at "IOKitPersonalities->NVDAStartup" and change "NVDARequiredOS - 15A284" to "NVDARequiredOS - 15B". Save,, and reinstall this kext with Kext Utility
      13. IMPORTANT, if you use SMBIOS MacPro 6.1 or iMac 15.1 and some type (I forgot) then do "7Th Step" above again.
      14. Restart and reuse "nvda_drv=1"
      15. Now you have El Capitan 10.11.1 at your SKYLAKE Computer
       
      Problem
      1. Internal Sata is still not function, it show "Intel 10 Series Chipset" but "unknown" for Harddrive Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      2. USB 3.0 is not function too, but it shot at USB System Report Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      3. When you open Browser Applications, Movies or Something like that then it will freeze for 10 seconds. I check console and i found "NVDA(Graphics): Channel exception! Exception type = 0x8 DMA Engine Error (FIFO Error 8)" Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      4. Address of Sound HDEF is different with my DSDT. Normally it should be "0x001B0000" but at my board's DSDT is "0x001F0003". So ScriptCommand of Toleda for ALC is not work anymore, we need to change that script command from HDEF-B to HDEF-F (just look at the script)
      5. We need to change Device HDAS to HDEF at address "0x00fF0003", but something weird after 5times my system freeze and i look at Audio System Report it suddenly show all of AUDIO Interface , before not. Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      6. I look at my Graphics/Displays Sytem report and at PCIe Lane Width, it show "x4" or "x8". Damn,, it should be "x16". It will random change after freeze from "x4" or "x8" My bad, i just need to plug out and plug in again. Just assembly case
       
       
       
      Maybe Rehabman, Slice and Pike R. Alpha want to help me
       
      Well,,
      i attach my file (Darwin Dumper File) <<<<< Before Patched, and
      i attach my DSDT + SSDT + Config.plist <<<<< After Patched and working well

      First my Old Threads is here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308178-el-capitan-wih-i7-6700-skylake-gigabyte-ga-z170-hd3-palit-jetstream-gtx960/

      My Computer Specifications
      1. Processor : Intel Core i7 6700
      2. Motherboard : Gigabyte Z170-HD3
      3. VGA Card : Palit Jetstream GTX960 4GB DDR5
      4. Wifi Card ; TP-Link TL-WDN4800
      5. PCI-E to Sata = Bafo PCI-e to 2 Sata3 and 2 e-Sata
      6. PCI to USB 2.0 - NEC Chipset
      7. Main Harddisk Harddisk : Fujitsu SSD 120GB + Seagate 500GB that plug into Bafo PCIe to Sata3
      8. Other Harddisk : Natno SSD 12GB, 2x Seagate 2TB, Seagate 500GB, all of it are plug into onboard Sata Chipset Controller (But Unknow at El Capitan / 10th Intel Chipset)
      9. RAM : Team 3000Mhz 8GB (2x4GB)
      10. Display : Asus VN248H
      11. Clover version : 3280

      My Step :
      1. Because Internal Sata Chipset and USB 3.0 are not supported yet, so i clone my Fujitsu 120GB SSD from my Hacbook Asus X455LA that already installed El Capitan Build 15B30a with Carbon Copy Cloner
      2. I use MacPro 6.1 as SMBIOS and use FakeCPUIID of Intel 4790k (0x0306C3)
      3. Remove CPUSensor.kext from "FakeSMC.kext/Contents/Plugins" if you don't do this it will be stuck at ACPI log verbose.
      4. I try boot from USB that already install Clover 3280 and it boot. I use "-v nv_disable=1 dart=0"
      5. Then at desktop, i install nvidia web driver 346.03.02F02 (before that you need to modif it,, use pkgutil --expand bla bla ba,, google it and change required os to "15B" then use pkgutl --flatten bla bla to repackage) then i change info plist from AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugin/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist and change line that contain board-id of MacPro 6.1 from Config2 to none
      6. Then i install that kext,, and restart
      7. i use "-v dart=0 nvda_drv=1 and it will need more time than usual to get login form,, yeah i did it. But there is some bugs
       
      Bugs :
      1. Internal sata is not function
      2. USB 3.0 is error too,,  at verbose i see "error mantisa log"
      3. Sometimes my system get freeze for a few seconds. I thinks this is error from Nvidia web driver,, i see nvdia error log from "sudo dmesg"

      At last,, sorry for my bad english
      Thanks
       
      This is for screenshots
       

       

      I upload my IOREG and DSDT
