It's OK, I use a spare copy of my config.plist which uses a different serial number that I actually use, so don't worry about that :D

 

I already posted the EFI folder and it's attached to my previous post. you can find it there.

 

BTW I got my FakeSMC with GPU sensor to work with no problem with my new Pascal graphics :)

It's weird!

 

All my sensors are gone even if I boot from my older EFI folder which I was using earlier this morning!!!

 

I found a version of HWMonitor from http://hwsensors.com/public/HWSensors.6.25-12-g23039705.1438.Binaries.dmgand it was working great with all the sensors specially GPU sensor.

 

But now their all gone :D

if u put in Clover/Kexts/Others or S/L/E, work, may two days i have many many problems with inject kexts, i try compiled with 4068 Clover and nothing

 

Run it and reboot two times

Olarila.command.zip

Just it

sudo nvram -c
sudo purge
sudo rm -f /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache && sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force

Pewwwwwwwh! I restored my EFI folder from two days back and I deleted the caches and now it's back to normal :)

 

Thanks anyway ;)

 

Their back :D

 

as you can see the GPU sensor is working and I'm happy.

 

I usually use /EFI/Clover/Kexts to install all the additional kexts so when I do a system update they will stay untouched.

Pascal Web drivers, HDMi audio on HDMI port does not work, HDMI/DP audio does work on DP ports.

Wow, topic is alive now :)

 

Maybe you share you clean config after all of manipulations? 

I see you have USBinjectAll kext< does it need?

 

Hi there, Welcome back :)

 

Yes we're alive and kicking :D

 

I will summarize the conclusion and will give you the end result of all these test as soon as we're done. So as they say stay tuned  ;)

 

But as I mentioned earlier here I recently changed my Graphic Adapter from AMD to nVidia Pascal so I no longer use El Capitan but I will continue to post on this topic.

Well my HDMI audio started to work when I added the SSDT-HDMI-HD530.aml to ACPI folder.

I have to Samsung displays which have no speaker and they are connected to DP ports of my graphic adapter and I have a TV connected to the HDMI port of my graphic card, the TV audio over HDMI works just fine.

I don't even have the intel graphics enabled in the BIOS though!

I think we need to collaborate and make a new thread for this motherboard as it seems very popular and is still being tweaked alot.

I'm more than happy to delete my guide thread for Sierra for a collaborated one.

Well, it's good idea to create a collaborated thread but I think it's better to keep your thread as well because it's already there and you made a great guide and people might need it. So as soon as the tests are done we can create the new topic for GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 ultimate guide for Mac OS 10.11.x, 10.12.x and hopefully the new upcoming 10.13 :D

Sounds good to me. As I already said though I'll be updating my guide soon when .5 or .6 is released and I do a clean install.

I can apply it into DSDT too, just one file all solution ;)

Which guide is this?

I'm currently running El Cap on my Gaming 5, and I'm looking to do a clean install upgrade to Sierra.

Hopefully, before the next release comes out ;-)

ok guys, after about 5 hours, my system is stable.

 

So I've made some changes and so far so good.

 

Thanks to MaLd0n for his patched DSDT everything works great.

 

I removed all the ACPI patches, I removed all the SSDT files, I only use his DSDT.aml file

 

I also removed NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext and applied AGDPfix and the reason is I think those kexts made my Graphic adapter run hotter, it's just a speculation which I'm testing.

Hi there. I am trying to follow properly when you both tested today:

 

Can you please confirm for me if this post #684 forwards:

If HDMI audio worked on:

 

* The actual motherboard's Intel IGP HDMI port? Or it did not?

 

* The motherboard's Intel IGP Displayport? Or it did not?

 

* Or the Nvidia Pascal Card Displayport? Or it did not?

 

* Or the Nvidia Pascal Card HDMI? Or it did not?

 

And it would really help me to know which specific .aml patch were responsible for what. (because for Gaming 3). Many thanks.

HDMI Audio works with HDMI cable connected to nVidia graphics adapter not the HDMI port of the mainboard, I don't even have the IGPU enabled in BIOS.

For other ports I cannot confirm that because I didn't test it.

 

I use 2 monitors with DP cables and 1 TV which is connected with HDMI cable and the Audio works on TV speakers.

My HDMI audio has always been flaky. Works when it wants.

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (February 2020) Updated to Clover r5104 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Updated acidanthera VoodooPS2 kext v2.1.1 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.

      Im having similar issue with my HS setup, dell latitute 3480, i5-7200U
      Once the hdmi plugged in, the laptop display went blank, only could see the external tv
      But, when i put my laptop to sleep & wake up again, both screen got display (hdmi still connected)
      Even the hdmi could be plugged off & in (after sleep), the laptop display is fine

      Hi, I'm trying to install Mac Os Catalina on a HP 550-132NL.
      The system has:
      i7-6700
      RAM 12 GB
      GT 730
      LAN Realtek RTL8161
      ALC3863
       
      It passes the verbose phase but after the Apple logo goes away, it gets stuck on a grey screen and I can only move the pointer.
      Can I try to boot with the iGPU?

      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5098): Click here -> ASUS-Z170_catalina.zip  
      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager) 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)  
      Notes:
       
      2020.02.11: Updated to 10.15.3 -> No problem when/after installing
      2020.01.19: Added ASUS HyperKit NVMe SSD to the "What is working" list
      2020.01.12: Tested system with OC, added more informations to BIOS settings
      2020.01.11: Added SmallTreeIntel82576.kext for 2nd Ethernet, Tested Ethernet ports
      2020.01.11: First upload
       
    • By Andres ZeroCross
      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
