Hey

 

Could you elaborate on the problem? Do you have a bootable usb made? What happens when you try to boot from it?

The fact is that, when i reboot from the usb after correct installation, the system reboot on the apple logo.

Always boot with -v boot-arg.

Then you will know what's happening.

 

SoNow i'll like to try anther correct installation process for my computer.

You can try this way: Making a 10.10/10.11 USB Installer /w Clover (UEFI and Legacy) the correct way!

 

Note: Post your hardware specs, is better to help you.

My first guess is you don't have KernelPm enabled in the Clover config.plist.

Sorry i was sleeping... 

in fact Battery is shown and it works, i didn't test HDMI & USB 3.. But i hope it'll work nicely.

For 4K Display resolution i'll test it by injecting CoreDisplayFixup.kext , IntelGraphicsFixup.kext & Lilu.kext to System/Library/Extensions, also delete them from clover/kext/other

Nope ..! USB 3 doesn't work

    • 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
