All good just wanted to make sure it wasn't actually used as a boot flag

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

OK - this has helped, I had to figure out what my smbios string was, the EFI archive I used has the model set to iMac - does that matter?  Would a Mac Pro be better?

 

Anyhow - I was able to find the correct entry, changed the 'Config2' to none - re-installed the kext, set the proper boot flags - and now things are looking much better.

When I log in now, I don't get an interlaced screen wipe to the desktop background like I was getting before - now the graphics are instantaneous.

 

One question though - no matter what I set it to - the NVidia driver app always shows 'OS X Default Graphics Driver' after rebooting.

I select the Webdriver option - reboot - and it gets deselected...

 

I even tried re-installed the web driver - and that made no difference.

 

I'd like to get the best graphic performance possible - so I assume that means using the web driver.

Mine would also revert back to the OSX Default but I don't think it really did or else it wouldn't be working right?

Yeah, after I posted - I went and downloaded the Heaven benchmark and tried running it.

I figured that would prove once and for all if it was using the webdrivers or not.

 

It ran PERFECTLY and blew the doors off my 2012 27" iMac.  I'm a believer!

 

Now - to connect some speakers and see if sound works or not...

My sound has always been flaky both with Toleda script and voodoohda. It would just stop working and take a few reboots to get it back.

Not sure what Toleda script you are referring to.  This one?  https://github.com/toleda/audio_ALCInjection/blob/master/audio_codecdetect.command.zip

I ran it and it said no codec was detected - check BIOS etc.

 

I checked the BIOS and yes, it is enabled.

 

I am attempting to muddle my way through this guide:

 

http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/audio-realtek-alc-applehda-guide.143757/#post886744

 

But I'm currently stuck at "Audio codec/ALC Injection? audio_codecdetect.command.zip (Select View Raw, double click)"

 

Note - I have NOT used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] since installing OS X - I thought that was optional if you are using Clover configurator like I have been.

If not - I can give that a try.

 

I did install the VoodooHDA drivers already - not sure if that caused the problem I'm having.

I suggest removing all the toledo's added entries in your config.plist and just use voodooHDA. You can find those entries under Kernel and Kext Patches and they have ALC in their comments.

you need to check the following entries in your config.plist as well to make sure everything is set for proper functionality of your audio device. 

 

Under ACPI make sure u have the following DSDT patch present:

Comment: Rename HDAS to HDEF          Find*[Hex]:48444153            Replace [HEX]:48444546

and

Under Devices make sure Audio is set to 1 and ResetHDA is checked.

I have already removed toledo's entries, my config.plist matches your except nvidia and ram stuff but i still can not maintain sound on every boot. I have tried voodoohda 2.8.8, voodoohda 2.8.8 v3 and voodoohda 2.8.9

 

Edit

Just rebooted and i got no sound through speakers but if i change output to HDMI i get sound through my monitor. Not really ideal for music etc...

That's wired try using this version of voodooHDA which already works just fine on my rig. I made some modifications to it's volume to get rid of hissing sound.

 

You got to place it under EFI\Clover\kexts\10.11

Are using a ssdt for audio? dsdt? This audio issue is driving me mad.

Ok,

I have audio working now - and the next hurdle is getting my external USB3 drives to be recognized, so I can transfer files from my iMac.

This LOOKS like what I need to follow:  http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306777-guide-usb-fix-el-capitan-1011/

 

However, I can't figure out what editor/viewer is being used.

 

To get my nvidia graphics working, I manually made some minor tweaks to a .plist file with a text editor, but I'd like to follow along this guide using the proper tools.

Unfortunately, this guide assumes you already know what the tool(s) referenced are...

Extract the contents of the zip file and place them under EFI\EFI\Clover\kexts\10.11

 

and make sure you have all the entries under ACPI DST Patches and add AppleUSBXHCIPCI under kernel and kext patches to raise the port  limit.

OK,

I copied over the kexts from Archive.zip - and rebooted and clover offered up my USB drive as a boot choice now.

I loaded my clover config.plist and verified that my settings are now identical to both of your screen shots EXCEPT: I have 'Patch APIC' checked.

 

Unfortunately, while Clover can see my USB drive, once I boot up - OS X can not see it...

Compare your settings with this screenshot and make sure you have all the USB values checked like this.

*Sigh*

 

Turns out - the drive was plugged into a USB3 hub.  I plugged the drive directly into the box, and all was well.

All 'was' well - since then I decided to apply the latest upgrade to El Cap - which required updated nvidia drivers (luckily - they were available)

and now I'm re-fixing my blank screen on boot up.

 

Luckily, Apple doesn't issue patches too frequently.

 

I assume my AppleGraphicsControl.kext got overwritten by either the OS X patch or the nvidia web driver upgrade, luckily, the changes were simple last time.

I don't believe your modified kext got over written but in fact the build number of os x changed and therefore the nvidia web drivers were not compatible.

That's great John_s, unfortunately I have graphics issues with sierra, old black screen case which I couldn't get it to work so I'm waiting for the final release of sierra to see if it's any different from the first public beta.

Anyone tested macOS Sierra on their Hackintosh here? Any issues? 

I tested macOS Sierra on two computers one of them has an ATI Radeon 5770 and a Core i3 processor which is my older rig and everything went smoothly but on my newer rig I have black screen issue with my AMD 7790 Radeon display adapter and I didn't put enough effort to solve the problem, but if you are asking if is it supported on skylake processors and your hardware I will say it will, but as I recall you used AMD graphics which might be a bit challenging.

But you won't know for sure unless you try it.

 

I'm waiting for macOS Sierra's final version to test and see if it works for me or not.

      Hi!
       
      I have everything working on my Acer notebook, except FN + Brightness keys using VoodoPS2Controller.kext
       
      Now the brightness keys are "Pause+Break = Brightness Up" and "Fn+F12 = Brightness Down" working right now but they are not the actual keys. 
      The actual brightness keys are "Fn+RightArrow = Brightness Up" and "Fn+LeftArrow = Brightness Down" but they are not working.
      The problem is I don't know the codes.
      Installed ioio and enabled debugging to console:
      Pause/Break is generating: "ApplePS2Keyboard: sending key e045=71" which upper the brightness
      Fn+F12 is generating: "ApplePS2Keyboard: sending key 46=6b" which lower the brightness
      Fn+RightArrow/LeftArrow generates nothing.
      Keyboard attached to PS2K
      Then I used rehabman's guide to enable ACPIDebugging, Installed kext to L/E, Debug methods (Instrument EC Queries, Add DSDT Debug Methods) to DSDT, but there are no codes generated to the log.
       
      Attaching debug folder.
      Also I don't know if it will help, but on Linux I got a code from decreasing/rising brightness with Fn+Left/RightArrow keys:
      Fn+RightArrow: "0xe0 0x54 0xe0 0xd4"
      Fn+Left: "0xe0 0x4c 0xe0 0xcc"
       
      Also I love using EMlyDinEsH's SmartTouchpad Driver, with that all of my Fn keys are working except Brigtness keys ofc. If there are any fix I would like to use that with the smarttouchpad driver. 
      EMlyDinEsH's SmartTouchpad Driver: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/1948-elan-focaltech-and-synaptics-smart-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/
       
      Specs in my signature. 
      Please help me fix this very last issue on my acer.

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (April 2019) Updated to Clover r4918 Updated Lilu kexts - ALC, WEG Merged Verleihnix' config.plist - especially to NOT inject GFX Updated BacklightInjector as option to WEG.
        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 (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.
