Thanks, Rehab. I'm not sure how to inject _DSM so I guess removing _SUN would be easier for me. Will I have to remove that whole section?


Okay, so I tried removing the section H000 with _SUN but when I compiled, I got two errors:
 
17195, 4007, Field offset is in bits, but a byte offset is required
 
55141, 4064, Object does not exist (\_SB.PCI0.BR1A.H000)

 

So I tried just saving without any changes and I still got the first error.

 

Not sure where to go from here.

My suggestion was to remove only the _SUN, not the entire H000 device.

Yes, I realise that but the _SUN is in the middle of it's own lump of code, or so it seems.

 

So I've found this in my DSDT:

 

               Device (H000)
                {
                    Name (_ADR, 0x00)
                    Method (_SUN, 0, NotSerialized)
                    {
                        Return (SNUM ())
                    }
                }
 
and that's the section which I think you suggest I remove (perhaps I've misunderstood).

 

I am looking further into DSDT and it is obvious that I have a lot to learn so I guess I should be patient. It is frustrating, however. Many references are to do with DSDT Editor and not MaciASL. The former seems to require Java which I refuse to install. I try to disassemble my DSDT.aml and things just go wrong from there so like I said, I guess I'm just going to need to be patient.

 

Amongst other problems that I'm trying to sort out with my X99 system is Turbo boost. Last night I switched off turbo on the BIOS but switched off EIST. This made some difference so when I run AppleIntelInfo, I now get the last state as being 34' and not '33'. My GeekBench score has gone up above 20000, now but I do not think that things are correct. With turbo boost, I should have processor speeds up to 3.7 GHz but I can only get things up to 3.4 GHz.

 

Of course any help / ideas would be appreciated.

Try removing just the _SUN method. It would leave you with:

               Device (H000)
                {
                    Name (_ADR, 0x00)
                }
 
If you're going to do much ACPI coding, recommend you read the ACPI spec.

For SIERRA DP4 Build 16A270f just one little change has to be made. Just change the following entry within config.plist - KextsToPatch section:

 

Change:

            <dict>
                <key>Comment</key>
                <string>NVMe SSD PikePatch#1</string>

                <data>ibPoAgAAweAJBQAQAACJgw==</data>

into:

            <dict>
                <key>Comment</key>

All other patches matches for SIERRA DP 4 Build 16A270f. Tested and running here since yesterday.

Hi all, I'm collecting builds for the new "MatchBuild" key using patches there  (Clover), any help remember those Sierra's versions? 

// beta 1 = 16A238m
// beta 2 =
// beta 3 = 16A254g ??
// beta 4 = 16A270f

// dp 1 = 16A201w
// dp 2 = 16A239j
// dp 3 = 16A270f (same as beta 4?)

@ Micky

 

DB = Developer Beta  (or DP = Developer Preview)  

 

PB = Public Beta

// db 1 = 16A201w
// db 2 = 16A239j
// db 3 = 16A254g
// db 4 = 16A270f

// pb 1 = 16A238m
// pb 2 = 16A254g (same build as db 3) 
// pb 3 = 16A270f (same build as db 4)

Anyone intrested trying this command line?

usage:

cd /to/a/folder
NVMeP -k /path/to/IONVMeFamily.kext

or by default search in /System/Library/Extensions, so no arguments needed.

cd /to/a/folder
NVMeP 

The result should be a patched kext + the configSample.plist..

 

Need that for Pandora, but I don't want to use scripts... so I made this reusable code.

:( what is this ?

Carmine:

copy NVMeP to your desktop.

create a folder named "test" inside your desktop

 

open the Terminal and paste this:

cd $HOME/Desktop/test

press return (invio)

 

then paste this again in Terminal:

$HOME/Desktop/NVMeP

press return (invio)

 

Look inside the "test" folder..

.. that succeded because all patches are correctly applied.

I am using the patch from PB1/2 on PB3 and its working correctly (except the drive icon colour ) do i need to use other patch or leave it like this?

 

You need an additional patch as described here: https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/2016/07/01/help-my-nvme-show-up-as-external/

No, there's no need to replace it. And if you use the kext, ther's no need for the KextToPatch.

But verily, I am here to compare already working kext with one generated by NVMeP for the various OSes, just to be sure! (roll out)


EDIT

 

is opensource, let me add more options and clean the source for some comments in it..
