Need help with Z170x UD5 TH El Capitan - KP on install boot

Recommended Posts

hi guys,

System specs

 

Z170x-UD5-TH

660

Geforce Nvidia 760

 

Trying to boot into the installer, but hanging on the search for transport event error.

USB is plugged into a Rear Black Panel port. 

 

Have tried checking the option in clover for USB Ownership. Legacy mode is disabled etc.

Any help greatly appreciated!

 

Cheers

Hi Sid87, 

 

It would be nice if you could post your config.plist or actually the whole entire EFI so we can see what you got in it.

Hi,

 

Please see attached my entire EFI folder. I've literally tried everything imaginable. I cant load the installer because of that Missing Bluetooth KP.

 

Ive unplugged my 960 to try to make it easier, so just trying too boot with the integrated GFX.


So funny story. I tried this config file and it booted to the installer. What gives? What makes this one so special?

The RAR is my original. The text file is the config i found that allowed me to boot. So, what gives??

You said you got into the installer, do you still need help?

I did, but why did it work with the second config file (not my own, found on internet) and not with the one I had?

    • hey MaLd0n  It's been a while since I used clover, so a lot of things went rusty. Can you please look at my setup and guide/help what should be done next?  https://fex.net/354949878474?fileId=441517695   Current setup:  GA-Z97X-UD3H Xeon e3 1245v3  Msi GTX 1050ti Gaming X
    • Hi @fabiosun and thank's for your patience with an old and stubborn man.   I am 100 % sure that my MSR 0xE2 register is unlocked thank's to you.   My system is 100% stable and I haven't had one kp with this configuration in the last two weeks.    I'm now running without TSCAdjustReseat.kext and I can't se any issues in performance with or without that kext. What I however can se is that the amount of total energy consumed during the test-cycle are 10 times higher without the kext (three times Cinebench CPU and two times Luxmark open CL) as you can see in the output from my AppleIntelInfo.kext attached in my earlier post.   I have tested running Cinebench five times in a row with or without TSC kext and have exactly the same performance (see attached files). Temperature is not a problem at all.   Everything seems to be fine so I guess I have to wait and see if upcoming 10.13.5 maybe recognise Intel Xeon w series processor as native.     
    • Tried with HPET enabled and disabled so I don't think it's that. I'd tried with bus ratio before to no effect but wouldn't hurt to try again. The clock runs at the correct speed.
    • could be an HPET / TSC Sync issue. does your system clock slow down or run faster then it should. also check cpu and buss ratios.
    • @MacPeet El capitan. It has t7700 cpu, so HS is not option for now. Have to find t9500 cpu. I bought this laptop for 30euros 3 weeks ago, with everything working, battery like new, it looks like from store, 4gb ram, 1920x1200 17" screen, replaced wifi and put SSD. Also sleep and hibernation working, native brightness, volume touch buttons work. Windows was not option because of broken  touchpad drivers, and linux because of slow graphics. Here everything works like it should.   AD1981 is also on thinkpad T60. I searched everywhere, but no solution. Here is some half working legacy driver, don't know how binary was patched(if it was): https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=85344&start=28#p564260
