Hi everyone, I have a laptop acer e5 574g

 

Intel i5 6200u

nVidia GeForce 920m and Intel HD 520

I got the mackintosh working, but the screen is flickering, I've installed GeForce WebDriver, but I think that this won't working, I know that wifi is incompatible, I'm using a eternal usb card for this problem.

 

I would like to use geForce or stop this flickering.

 

anybody can help me with this?

try it

attachicon.gifCLOVER.zip

 

Don't working see screenshots attached, I getting the message "Still waiting for root device"

 

I try remove your disable_nv=1 argument, but get the same error.

 

the process that I done in EFI was:

 

zip CLOVER folder and rename the zip to CLOVER.bak.zip;

delete CLOVER folder;

and lastly paste CLOVER folder that you send me.

 

now I'll try to boot with my config but with disable_nv=1 argument, I'll notice here if it's work.

 

EDIT #1

I notice that I was already booting with this argument, I try to remove the argument in clover menu, and the OSX boot normally, like when I'm using the nv_disable=1 and the graphics have the same behavior with the argument and without it.

 

I'm assuming that the argument isn't giving any effect in OSX for some reason.

I tried it, but no success, see the screenshot;

 

I think there's problem with the Intel HD520 graphics driver if you see in the screenshot, it's saying about dependencies after "AppleIntelSKLGraphics"

I notice that the video work with full acceleration now, but VoodooHDA stop working, and brightness is low now, I use the config.plist, but the DSDT still give me a kernel panic.

 

I'll try to install the last file that you send.

Sorry, I forgot to take a print this time.

 

​I try to do the fresh install and still getting this message "Still waiting for root device", after that I deleted the clover folder and put the old again, now graphics acceleration working, audio working, but the brightness still low.

 

I'm not using DSDT, I put it on ACPI/patched, but it gives me a kernel panic.

 

what is KP?

      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.

      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?

      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
