Yes I did see post 1, had another look. Still none the wiser. I can't seem to find where this HDEF is. Thanks for the reply though.

@runo

Compare DSDT and config.plist and the Kext's from Post#1 !!!

 

 

@kilo23
You can also update from the Capitan. (only SMBIOS iMac10,1, SMBIOS MacPro3,1 not works)
1. Backup from Capitan!!!
2. Before, install new Clover in Capitan, sample version 3773.
3. All Kext's to EFI/Clover/kexts/10.11/ and to EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12/   !!!
4. SIP 0x67
5. Download macOS Sierra from appstore and run
6. After restarting, switch to the installer in the CloverBootloader
7. The rest as always.
 
After the installation, audio no longer works. See Post#1 for more info.
 
 
@Aaronation
Which Optiplex model?
Which audio method did you have before? On-the-fly with Clover?
Post here your DSDT.aml, then I make the change.

Hello, I'm using a 780 2.66GHz Quad and yes it was on the fly audio with clover.

 

Thanks

It doesn't look like I can add my file?

try this:  DSDT.aml.zip

 

Install back the original AppleHDA to S/L/E                <---ok?

Install the AppleALC to S/L/E                                    <---ok?
Delete all AppleHDA Kext-to-patch entries in Clover    <---ok?
delete realtekALC.kext of Clovers kext folder              <---ok?
 
rebuild cache and reboot

Very good, lots of fun with Optiplex and Sierra.

Edit:

Thank you.

I like your signature. Unfortunately, GT610 does not work with Sierra.

Yes I was lucky enough to read that the GT610 was no longer supported before I started the Sierra install.

However I'm a bit gutted as I've been installing El Capitan for friends on various Dell Optiplex machines mainly 780 SFF.

And most of them bought the GT610 on my recommendation, so I just hope they don't want to update too soon.

Thanks I will try it.  Does the clover version matter? (e.g. can I get the latest? or does that specific one only work?)

I assume SIP stuff is changed via clover?

And by back-up... This is the first time using a Mac for me.. so I assume cloning the drive is a back up?

Clover version is important. Old versions do not work with Sierra.

Example 3650 I had tested, working very well. Latest 3773 also works well.
 
When you install a new Clover version, your settings in the config.plist are not overwritten.
 
Cloning is the best backup method.

I have Sierra installed on my 755 Optiplex which is connected to my tv via hdmi from my GTX 750Ti after upgrading I booted with nv_disable=1 and updated the webdrivers and rebooted, but the display will not come up via hdmi. Could it be something in the framebuffer ? Is there any possible solution to this issue?

@MacPeet I have that set in my config.plist but still no signal from hdmi let me try taking out the nvda_drv=1 command out of my plist and try rebooting again

 

Edit: taking out nvda_drv=1 and still having a black screen on both hdmi and vga with my tv it won't recognize the external display with the webdrivers on Sierra

Inject nvidia is off with the web drivers?

 

try this:

patched in /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist your SMBIOS / Board-ID to "none"

Hello Gents, my mic is not working for some reason.  I'm using the Modified hda not the on the fly method.  So much for Siri! Any hints I will gladly take them.  Bootup seems to be a lot longer if I use a Nvidia card!  I lost my vpn ppp client, I am very sad :(.  Oh yeah and I loose my ethernet if I let the machine sleep for long periods of time.

 

 

Cheers, snakeman

If i install mult ibea st, my usb doesent work (so i cant use keyboard or mouse)

If i change the config.plist with a config.plist posted here, the countdown of clover doesent work anymore (but keyboard and mouse work)

 

Any ideas?
