Has anyone had success with this board and sierra with on board graphics?

 

Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

Yes I have. I Used macOS Sierra 10.12.1 installer and the following config.plist

 

I also managed to get my AMD Radeon HD7790 to work with IGFX set as primary with 3 displays one connected to IGFX and the other two connected to my PCIe graphics adapter. But I removed ATI settings from the file just to avoid confusion and conflicts.

In general kext folder inside the EFI\Clover\ is a place for adding extra kext files which are not supported by Mac OS X and Apple Computers and for clover bootloader, Mac OS X will load them and make the installation and/or loading of the Mac OS X possible on non apple computers, "10.11" is the kext folder used for El Capitan installer or the partition which is used to boot El Capitan specifically while "Other" folder is used for any other Mac OS X versions you might have installed on your hard disks. For instance if you are using clover boot loader to boot macOS Sierra you can add another folder and call it "10.12" and put all the relative kext files inside it so clover could load them for macOS Sierra or just simply use the "Other" folder. The other folder is used for any previous versions of Mac OS X installation or installed version of Mac OS X. Whether you use a USB installer or load the clover boot loader from internal hard disk you need to put those kext files inside the kext folder which are relative to your installation.

 

For more information about Clover you can see the following website to see what is what:

Question, I am having difficulty with my build.. 
I have a -
Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 5

Intel Skylake 6700K 

Ballistix Sport LT 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 

Samsung 500GB SSD
and a GTX 660

Using SSDT-i7-6700K.aml and a pretty vanilla clover base.. I am seeing weird things like the CPU showing "1.99 GHz Intel Core i7", My Wifi doesn't work but my bluetooth does.. I am using 14,2 in my SMBIOS because thats the only one that I could get bluetooth and my video card working.. Any advice on how to clean everything up would be greatly appreciated.  I've attached a copy of my EFI folder if that helps..

Where does it show the processor speed 1.99 GHz, in About This Mac window or in third party Hardware monitors? and what type of bluetooth and wireless adapter you are using? 

 

In the EFI folder you attached here it shows that you are using iMac 17,1 SMBIOS and you don't use any kind of kexts at all.

Hey guys,

 

I recently updated my BIOS to F21 and it solved the annoying UEFI boot entries.

 

I just wanted to tell you guys in case some of you still struggling with that.

 

Cheers

I believe it was already resolved with the F20 bios

Oh, I didn't know that because I was still using the old F5 bios :hysterical:

But thanks for the update

Hey guys, what's up?

 

I recently found a Patched DSDT for GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 mainboards and it works just fine. I removed all the previous patches from clover and as far as I know everything works fine on macOS Sierra 10.12.4

I cannot confirm it for El Capitan but it should work as well. Feel free to test it out and post your experience here.

 

Here is the link to barijaona's GitHub page and all the credit goes to him.

After using MaLd0n's patched DSDT I can confirm:

 

I removed the following patches from ACPI:

 

change _OSI to XOSI

Change EHC2 to EH02

Rename HDAS to HDEF

Change EHC1 to EH01

and I don't need FixShutdown_0004 anymore

 

and with your AppleALC.kext

I don't need AppleHDA patches 

 

 

I still use the following Kernel and Kext Patches

 

AirPortAtheros40

AppleUSBXHCIPCI

 

Thank you MaLd0n :)

I will send you the ioreg soon, but at first let me check some things with you.

 

1. At first attempt system didn't boot at all maybe that's because I didn't remove all the ssdt files from ACPI, after removing all the ssdt files. system booted normally.

 

2. Hardware sensors don't work even with my old FakeSMC.

 

3. My Front Header USB ports doesn't work any more.

      HP 250 G5/Skylake/I5/520 graphics/sunrise point   Insyde H20 updated with TPM, virtualizaton and secure boot disabled.  19A546d USB boots -v cpus=1 and begins install ok.  After first reboot installer hangs at 14 minutes remaining with high CPU/fan use and no HDD write activity.   Same after 4-5 hours.  First reboot apparently creates the volume group and writes the installer files to the Data volume ok.  Clover shows preboot/installer  installer and Recovery icons.  It appears that there are no system files being written to the System volume.  The reboot USB verbose output screen indicates 'assertion failed 19A546d'.  Mojave boots/runs ok on its own partition same HDD.   Anyone with similar installer issue on HP notebook and/or Insyde BIOS?  Any help appreciated.

      Running Mojave 10.14.6 (18G95) on a Dell Precision 7510 and trying to get all framebuffers working properly.
       
      The following CPU is being used: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/89608/intel-xeon-processor-e3-1505m-v5-8m-cache-2-80-ghz.html
       
      The actual Device ID of the iGPU is 0x191D.
       
      There are the following graphical outputs:
       
      mDP
      HDMI
      Thunderbolt
       
      Clover 5058 (update to date at time of writing) is being used and up to date versions of Lilu 1.38, WEG 1.3.1
       
      Till now I've been running with the following config:
       

       
      with Model Name: MacBookPro13,3
       
      When using 191B:
       
      LDVS - Ok
      HDMI (no audio) : 1920x1080
      Thunderbolt (no audio) : 3440 x 1440

      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.
