[Guide] Sierra / High Sierra / Mojave / Catalina on mobos Serie 100 / 200 / 300 / SkyLake / KabyLake / CoffeeLake DSDT

Hey MaLd0n, Awesome guide, thank you so much, here are my clover files+ACPI+IORegistry.
My specs are the following:

 

Mobo: GA-Z270-HD3P Rev 1.0 Bios F7

CPU: i5 7500

GFX: Gigabyte GT 1030 OC 2GB
Ram: 1x16GB

Storage: Kingston SSD 120GB for system and i will throw in another 2TB HDD as soon as I'm done with the system setup

 

I installed El Captain 1st and then upgraded using the app store so that i can have the final update of Sierra with kabylake support, after installing Sierra, i removed fakeCPU ID, and changed my smbios to 18,2 as that specific model uses the same CPU that i have at the moment, so i don't really understand, do i need any PM hacks, or is my CPU OOB?

Here are the files you requested, can't wait to have this beast up and running, I've been on 10.8.5 on a C2Q Q6600 for the past couple of years.... lol (might upgrade it to El Captain using your other guide :)

Hi it would be awesome if you could help me out as well.

 

On High Sierra

 

I got a i7 7700k @5100mhz on a

GA z270-UD5.   F5 BIOS

16gig 3000mhz

and a 

GTX1070

 

Getting some proper mA to the USB would be epic.

 

I hope I added all necessary files.

Hi Maldon,

 

you dont need to do the DSDT edits like this editing the actual file.  Clover has sections in it called drop dsdt tables and then patch each item from the clover config.plist file alone.  just an update for people who keep posting their dsdt's and you dont need to edit every dsdt file people post.

 

What program and patches are you using to do the patches?

clover have a very basic patches, all hacks need a good edited DSDT ;)

check clover page and see slice talkin' about it

create patches with datasheet, ioreg and tables real macs and tests, many tests and time.

see u

I am having trouble with my new setup. 

I have a 7600K, MSI Z270 Gaming M5, GTX 1070.

I am unable to see SATA or NVMe drives. That and I cannot get the Nvidia Web Drivers to load. 

 

I've tried a handful of patches, SSDT-SATA from Rehabman, SATA-200-Unsupported.kext, and a handful others. The SATA controller is 8086:A282, which is apparently unsupported. I'm at my wits end as my first hackintosh with my skylake went beautifully. Hopefully someone can help me out here.

 

Here are the support files. I appreciate anyone's help they can offer!

Nvme, use pike patches

Hey MaLd0n, thank you for your work , it helped me a lot. I use your DSDT file on my hackintosh, but I thought maybe I need a patch because I don't have the same MotherBoard. Here is my config :

The DSDT is a thing a don't understand so much , so I just take your file and put it into ACPI/Origin

 

Thank You.

i need ur table

CLOVER Delecta.zip

Hello MaLd0n, thanks for this guide.

 

I have a problem with speed of the lan controller, if i transfert a big file from my nas the data speed is average 22MB/s, but the lan negotiation is 1000 in the Sierra setting and the led of my gibagit switch is green (1000).

 

If i transfert the same file with Windows  or Ubuntu the data speed is 80-90MB/s.

 

I have used the kext in first page:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/313-atherose2200ethernet/

 

My mainboard is GA Z270 Gaming K3

 

You can help me please?  ^_^

Hi again!

Everything works perfectly except for a couple of things. 

The computer seems to wake itself randomly and stick on a black screen. I then have to force reset  and when I reset it is in hibernate at the clover menu. 

Also, my thunderbolt device seems to only work sometimes, and I need to power it on right as I power on the computer.

Is there anything I can do to fix these issues?

Thank you!

Hmmm very strange, I tried without dsdt.aml and the sound card is seen. Might be something in dsdt.aml?

else: could you tell me what is the kext to patch for my ahci controller? :)

      Hi guys,
       
      So, this little tutorial is meant to help people fix a new issue with Mojave: opening jpg files (looks like it happens with larger files, not so much with smaller ones) using Quick Look (on spacebar key pressed) or Preview app, using the dedicated GPUs.
      The issue is that, when trying to open jpg files (for some reason, it doesn't occur with pngs), the pop-up window would remain in an endless loop. And from that point forward, any other app trying to open the same file will either become unresponsive (in the case of the Preview app) or just stay in endless loop (in case of Quick Look)
       
      As a workaround, in case the tutorial below doesn't work for you, you can use Grab (built-in app in MacOS) to open said files.
       
      This issue DOES NOT occur using the iGPU. So...if you're comfortable using the iGPU, just switch to that and you should be good to go. You don't need this tutorial.
       
      This tutorial is based on @Cyberdevs' research and testing on this topic (especially useful if you're using an RX series AMD video card), and my own very limited time testing this on my rig. I just thought it would be useful to create a new thread for it so that people can discuss this particular issue here.

       
      With that being said, I'll just move on to the actual tutorial.
       
      New (probably better) method.
       
      Switch your SMBIOS in Clover config in regards to the dedicated GPU you're using, instead of the CPU. Take a look here and choose the corresponding SMBIOS closest to your hardware.
      Yeah, that's it.
       
      In case you lose CPU PM with this method, there are multiple ways to fix that, and they do not make the object of this thread.  It worked perfectly fine for me though and I didn't need to change anything else.
       
      Alternatively, you can also try one of the MacPro SMBIOSes, such as MacPro5,1 or MacPro6,1. It was tested multiple times and it showed good results. 
      Keep in mind that choosing these will most likely not show you an iGPU in System Report, since those machines generally (probably all of them) use Xeon CPUs with no iGPUs either.
       
      /!\NOTE: There have been reports saying that using this method (switching SMBIOS to a MacPro one) with newer versions of MacOS may cause iTunes to crash.
      So...keep that in mind and better try some of the other methods mentioned here.
       
      A simple Lilu plugin
       
      Thanks to vulgo for the plugin and @Matgen84 for sharing and testing it, we now have yet another possible solution to this issue. It's a Lilu plugin (which means that it requires Lilu.kext in order to work) it's called NoVPAJpeg, and it can be downloaded from here.
      You use it as a regular kext, alongside Lilu. I prefer (and recommend) using it within the EFI folder, in Clover/kexts/Other. But if you want to use it in S/L/E, that should work just fine.
       
      More info can be found in this post here.
       
      UPDATE:
       
      According to Vulgo, NoVPAJpeg.kext is now deprecated.
      In case its functionality is needed, use WhateverGreen.kext and add the following boot arguments:
      shikigva=32 shiki-id=Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94 In case you wanna try alternative medicine  ...
       
      The main thing we need to do is actually very simple: we need to enable the iGPU (integrated GPU) by default, in BIOS, while actually being connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      For ATI GPUs (curtesy of @Cyberdevs' post here).
       
      The discreet GPU should be set as primary in BIOS and your displays should be connected to your discreet GPU
      The iGD/iGPU/iGFX must be enabled in BIOS/UEFI as the secondary GPU.
       
      I removed the DSDT Reconfigured the config.plist to and removed some flags which weren't needed because of the DSDT added the InjectATI + Ornioco Framebuffer (I removed the Orinoco framebuffer because of some weird glitches but it might be useful for other AMD GPUs if you inject the correct framebuffer according to your GPU. No need to inject anything for nVidia GPUs unless your GPU needs it) Added the InjectIntel + ig-platform-id for my intel HD530 (for intel HD 530 I use the 0x19120001 ig-platform-id)  
      Steps 5 to 7 might not be necessary I just did them anyway, if anyone succeeded to get quicklook working without those steps let me know so I can exclude those steps.

           Also confirmed to work with AMD R9 270X on a SandyBridge rig (without an iGPU) using WhateverGreen + Lilu kexts, which also helped to solve the transparency issue along with the Quick Look problem, it also resolved the buggy Screen Capture (Command+Shift+5) issue as well. 
       
          Also, do:
      nvram cleanup kextcache & prelinked kernel rebuild reboot  More info on that here.
       
       
      For NVIDIA GPUs (tested on my old MSi GTX 650)
       
      This is what I needed for my NVIDIA GPU and the MSI motherboard in the signature (*since then, I upgraded my GPU to my current RX 580). Your milage may vary, depending on your hardware. But, the idea should be the same regardless.
       
         For MSi motherboads (check out my motherboard details in the signature)
       
      Set your BIOS to use PEG (dedicated GPU) so you can boot.
      Since you're reading this, chances are that you're already connected to the dedicated GPU and the BIOS is set to PEG. So just go into BIOS and see if you're using the iGPU or the dedicated (PEG) graphics device by default.
      If you're already using this, skip to Step 3 (the part AFTER Reboot). Reboot (I think you don't necessarily need to boot into the OS...but you do need to reboot at least until Clover UI) Reboot back into BIOS and set it from PEG to IGD (integrated graphics) WITHOUT removing the cable. Save Reboot again.  
         The result should be that the OS is tricked into thinking you're booting with the IGPU when in fact you're using the dedicated GPU.
       
         For Gigabyte motherboards
       
         Set:
      Peripherals -> Initial Display Output -> iGFX Chipset -> Internal Graphics -> Enabled
           DVMT Pre-Allocation -> default 64M.
           DVMT Total Gfx Mem -> default 256M Save Reboot  
         You should do this with the cable connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      You will also need to patch the iGPU from Clover config.
      1. Graphics -> Inject Intel (UNCHECK Inject Nvidia or ATI if it's checked).
      2. ig-platform-id (in my case for Intel HD 4600 Desktop) it was: 0x0d220003
       
      And use IntelGraphicsFixup.kext (now included into WhateverGreen.kext) in Clover/kexts/Other. In my particular case, without the kext, I would get freezes in Safari.
       
      Another way to activate the iGPU while having the dGPU set as primary is by going into BIOS/SAG/Graphics Configuration/iGPU and setting Multi-Monitor to [Enabled], all the rest remains on [Auto], and set Inject/Intel to [True] in Clover config.*.
       
      Thanks to @gjw for the tip.
       
      *Motherboard dependent. But the multi-monitor option might be the same regardless of manufacturer.
       
       
      This might be a bug with Mojave and it could be fixed by Apple in the future. but in the meantime, feel free to use this if it helps you fix the issue.
       
      For HP motherboards (including laptops), so far no solution, unless the BIOS somehow allows to switch from dGPU to iGPU and vice-versa.
       
      Cheers!

      Hello Friends, how are ya?

      Could you help me with a problem?

      I followed some guides like: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic ... coffeelake -dsdt /

      and the installation of high Sierra 10.13.6 (17G8030) and nvidia webdrivers (correspondent to OS version) went smoothly, the problem starts when I try to boot the GPU.

      Hardware:
      MOBO: Aorus B360M gaming 3 (rev.1)
      CPU: i5 8400
      GPU: GTX 1060 OC Galax redblack

      BIOS:
      Fast boot - disabled
      windows 8/10 features - other os
      lan pxe - disabled
      storage boot option - UEFI
      other pci devices - UEFI
       
      Initial display output - PCie 1 slot
      Intel's Platform Trust Technology (PTT) - disabled
      sata mode selection - AHCI
      XHCI hand off - enabled
      VT-d - disabled
      internal graphics - auto


      The problem is:
      I can log into the system normally without using my nvidia GPU but when I boot the system with the flags for webdrivers to work I fall into the login screen but it keeps flashing, I can see the mouse and I can move it but the screen flashes and the following error appears when the screen goes "black": IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0. I searched for this error on the internet and tried to solve but to no avail so far.

      If someone can help me I would be extremely grateful! thanks in advance!

      Framebuffer patching in Mojave
      Binary patching framebuffers using KextsToPatch in Clover is no longer a viable method in Mojave for Skylake and above. Now you need to use Lilu + WhateverGreen.
       
      Not just for Mojave
      This method of framebuffer patching is not only required for Mojave we recommend it for all previous and future releases of macOS.
       
      Coffee Lake Users
      Please note that the new WhateverGreen will not work with fake Kaby Lake platform-id's. You will need to have either macOS 10.14 Beta 4 (18A336e) or macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112). The latter is a special build only available to MacBookPro15,1 or MacBookPro15,2 board id's. You can create a macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112) installer by running installinstallmacos.py. (Update: vit9696 added back ability to fake Kaby Lake platform-id's)
       
      Lilu + WhateverGreen
      WhateverGreen is going to replace all the other video patching plugins for Lilu (it currently has merged WhateverGreen, IntelGraphicsFixup, NvidiaGraphicsFixup, Shiki and CoreDisplayFixup). Others will likely follow (such as AppleALC, HibernationFixup and IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup). This is aiming to be the all-in-one solution for video.
       
      Preliminary
      1. Remove:
      - FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics
      - IntelGraphicsFixup
      - NvidiaGraphicsFixup
      - CoreDisplayFixup
      - Shiki
      2. Turn off all graphics injections in Clover:
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/ATI=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/Intel=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/NVidia=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/ig-platform-id=
      - config.plist/Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX=

      3. Disable DSDT Clover fixes:
      - AddHDMI
      - FixDisplay
      - FixIntelGfx
      - AddIMEI
      4. Disable UseIntelHDMI
      5. Remove boot argument: -disablegfxfirmware
      6. Remove any IGPU and HDMI entries from:
      - config.plist/Devices/Arbitrary
      - config.plist/Devices/Properties
      - config.plist/Devices/AddProperties
      7. Remove any IGPU and HDMI related SSDT and DSDT from:
      - CLOVER/ACPI/patched
      8. Renaming GFX0 -> IGPU
      - WhateverGreen will do this automatically (see caveat below)
      - Be aware that WhateverGreen does not rename all instances of GFX0 -> IGPU but should be okay in most cases
      - You may need to include Clover GFX0 -> IGPU rename for other kexts or ACPI patching that require it
       
      Compile Lilu + WhateverGreen
      Download WhateverGreen. Make sure you place the debug version of Lilu into the root of WhateverGreen before you compile. Install Lilu and WhateverGreen kext's into the usual place. Compile WhateverGreen as debug if you want to view debug output.
       
      Having trouble compiling?
      If you're having trouble compiling you can download the official release binaries or download my (unsupported) build_lilu.sh shell script and run it in a folder to download and build Lilu + WhateverGreen using Xcode automatically. I recommend you try the debug versions first (place them into Clover's EFI/Clover/kexts/Other folder).
       
      Get the device path of your IGPU:
      Download and use the gfxutil tool like so:
      $ ./gfxutil -f IGPU DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) ig-platform-id
      For the AAPL,ig-platform-id (AAPL,snb-platform-id for Sandy Bridge) entry Clover requires this value to be in Data format so you need to reverse the bytes. So if you want your platform-id to be 0x3EA50009 first reverse the bytes (0900A53E) then use Xcode's plist editor to add the values to Clover's config.plist.

       
      What ig-platform-id should I use for my system?
      You should choose one that is the closest match to your system. I recommend you do some research on this before choosing one. See post #2 for available options. More info can be found here.
       
      You can determine the generation of your CPU by the first digit after the hyphen.
      Examples:
      - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2760QM (Gen 2)
      - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5257U CPU @ 2.70GHz (Gen 5)
      - Intel(R) Core(TM) m3-6Y30 (Gen 6)
      - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8350U (Gen 8)
       
      Spoofing Intel CPU Gen
      If you need to spoof a different Intel CPU generation you can use the lilucpu=N boot flag. The N refers to the following Intel generations:
      4    SandyBridge 5    IvyBridge 6    Haswell 7    Broadwell 8    Skylake 9    KabyLake 10   CoffeeLake To spoof a CPU you will need to set a valid device-id in your GPU entry in Devices/Properties for the appropriate Intel generation.
       
      Eg. Spoofing Skylake (lilucpu=8 boot flag with device-id=0x16190000), Kaby Lake (lilucpu=9 boot flag with device-id=0x12590000).

      Framebuffer Patching
      WhateverGreen does most of the work automatically for you and in most cases you do not need any extra Framebuffer Patching. At the minimum though you should choose an ig-platform-id suitable for your system and place it in config.plist/Devices/Properties like this:

      Here are some reasons why you might need extra Framebuffer Patching:
      - Setting DVMT for those who can't set it above 32 MB in BIOS (framebuffer-stolenmem / framebuffer-fbmem)
      - Setting higher VRAM for 4K users who experience graphical glitches (framebuffer-unifiedmem)
      - Disabling eGPU (disable-external-gpu)
      - Enable pixel clock patch for 4K support (enable-hdmi20)
      - Disabling connectors to enable sleep (framebuffer-pipecount / framebuffer-portcount / framebuffer-conX-type=-1)
      - Removing CNConnectorAlwaysConnected flag for eDP laptop screens on < 10.13.6 (framebuffer-con0-flags=0x00000090)
      - Changing connector types to match your systems ports (framebuffer-conX-type)
       
      Framebuffer Patching Types
      We have three different types of patches:
       
      1. Arbitrary (Recommended)
      framebuffer-patch-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id) (all below are optional) framebuffer-mobile framebuffer-pipecount framebuffer-portcount framebuffer-memorycount framebuffer-stolenmem framebuffer-fbmem framebuffer-unifiedmem framebuffer-cursormem (Haswell only) framebuffer-camellia framebuffer-flags framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-conX-index framebuffer-conX-busid framebuffer-conX-pipe framebuffer-conX-type framebuffer-conX-flags 2. All Data
      framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-conX-alldata 3. Find / Replace
      framebuffer-patchX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-patchX-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id) framebuffer-patchX-find framebuffer-patchX-replace framebuffer-patchX-count (optional; defaults to 1) You should place your patches in config.plist/Devices/Properties in Clover config.plist.
       
      Here are some example patches:
      - 32MB BIOS, 19MB stolen (framebuffer) 9MB fbmem (cursor) 2048MB unifiedmem (vram)

       
      - Pipe / Port Count 3 to 2
      - Connector 1 DP to HDMI
      - Connector 2 Disable

       
      Here is an example of the All Data method:

       
      Here is an example of the Find / Replace method:

       
      Framebuffer Dumps
      There are two ways to dump your framebuffer data (both require WhateverGreen + Lilu debug versions):
       
      1. Using -igfxdump boot flag to dump IGPU framebuffer kext to /AppleIntelFramebuffer_X_Y (root of your boot drive)
       
      There are several ways of reading this dump:
      - Using 010 Editor along with the IntelFramebuffer.bt template
      - Using Hackintool File->Open menu
       
      2. Using -igfxfbdump boot flag to dump native and patched framebuffer table to ioreg at IOService:/IOResources/WhateverGreen
       
      There are several ways of reading this dump:
      - Using dump_platformlist.sh shell script
      - Using Hackintool File->Import->IOReg Dump menu
       
      3. Using Hackintool Framebuffer->macOS 10.14 menu
       
      Adjusting the brightness on a laptop
      1. Method 1
      Enable Clover DSDT fix AddPNLF. Enable SetIntelBacklight and SetIntelMaxBacklight. A specific value is not necessary - it will be automatically injected according to the processor installed.
      2. Method 2
      Use this ACPI table: SSDT-PNLF.dsl SSDT-PNLF.aml
      Do not use both methods at the same time!
       
      Digital Audio (HDMI / DVI / DP)
      To enable digital audio it is necessary to set the necessary properties and, usually, patch the connectors.
      To enable audio in general and HDMI in particular use WEG along with AppleALC.kext.
      On 10.10.5 and above, WEG automatically changes the connector-type of DP (00040000) to HDMI (00080000) if no custom patches are used.
      The actual connection may be of any type (HDMI / DVI / DP), but for the digital audio to function the connector-type must explicitly be HDMI.
       
      VGA support
      In most cases with Intel Skylake and newer it works by default.
      For Ivy Bridge and possibly other generations there are the options to patch your connectors with the following:
      06020000 02000000 30000000 // Option 1
      06020000 01000000 30000000 // Option 2
      On OS X 10.8.2 and newer it is impossible to have VGA on Ivy Bridge systems.
      Hot-plugging VGA usually does not work.

      EDID
      EDID is usually correctly identified, so no actions are required. In rare cases, EDID needs to be injected manually.
      An EDID dump can be obtained, for example, with Linux. The correct EDID must be put into *AAPL00,override-no-connect* property for IGPU, where the second 0 stands for the display number.
      In some cases the EDID dump may be incompatible with macOS and leads to distortions. For some EDID in such cases you can use this script, which corrects a provided EDID and saves it to your desktop.
       
      HDMI in UHD resolution with 60 fps
      Add the enable-hdmi20 property to IGPU, otherwise you will get a black screen. Or instead of this property use the boot-arg -cdfon
       
      Disablng a discrete graphics card
      Add the disable-external-gpu property to IGPU. Or instead of this property, use the boot-arg -wegnoegpu
       
      Fix the invalid maximum link rate issue on some laptops (Dell XPS 15 9570, etc.)
      Add the enable-dpcd-max-link-rate-fix property to IGPU, otherwise a kernel panic would happen due to a division-by-zero. Or instead of this property, use the boot-arg -igfxmlr.
      You could also manually specify a maximum link rate value via the dpcd-max-link-rate for the builtin display.
      Typically use 0x14 for 4K display and 0x0A for 1080p display. All possible values are 0x06 (RBR), 0x0A (HBR), 0x14 (HBR2) and 0x1E (HBR3). If an invalid value is specified, the default value 0x14 will be used instead. If this property is not specified, same as above.  
      Fix the infinite loop on establishing Intel HDMI connections with a higher pixel clock rate on Skylake, Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake platforms
      Add the enable-hdmi-dividers-fix property to IGPU or use the -igfxhdmidivs boot argument instead to fix the infinite loop when the graphics driver tries to establish a HDMI connection with a higher pixel clock rate, for example connecting to a 2K/4K display with HDMI 1.4, otherwise the system just hangs (and your builtin laptop display remains black) when you plug in the HDMI cable.  
      1. General Notes
      For those who want to have "limited" 2K/4K experience (i.e. 2K@59Hz or 4K@30Hz) with their HDMI 1.4 port, you might find this fix helpful. For those who have a laptop or PC with HDMI 2.0 routed to IGPU and have HDMI output issues, please note that this fix is now succeeded by the LSPCON driver solution, and it is still recommended to enable the LSPCON driver support to have full HDMI 2.0 experience.  
      (You might still need this fix temporarily to figure out the connector index of your HDMI port. See the LSPCON section below.)
      LSPCON driver support to enable DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 output on IGPU
      1. Brief Introduction
      Recent laptops (Kaby Lake/Coffee Lake-based) are typically equipped with a HDMI 2.0 port. This port could be either routed to IGPU or DGPU, and you can have a confirmation on Windows 10. Intel (U)HD Graphics, however, does not provide native HDMI 2.0 output, so in order to solve this issue OEMs add an additional hardware named LSPCON on the motherboard to convert DisplayPort into HDMI 2.0.
      LSPCON works in either Level Shifter (LS) or Protocol Converter (PCON) mode. When the adapter works in LS mode, it is capable of producing HDMI 1.4 signals from DisplayPort, while in PCON mode, it could provide HDMI 2.0 output. Some onboard LSPCON adapters (e.g. the one on Dell XPS 15 9570) have been configured in the firmware to work in LS mode by default, resulting a black screen on handling HDMI 2.0 connections.
      Starting from version 1.3.0, WhateverGreen now provides driver support for the onboard LSPCON by automatically configuring the adapter to run in PCON mode on new HDMI connections, and hence solves the black screen issue on some platforms.
       
      2. Before you start
      LSPCON driver is only applicable for laptops and PCs with HDMI 2.0 routed to IGPU. LSPCON driver is necessary for all newer platforms unless the new IGPU starts to provide native HDMI 2.0 output. Supported Intel Platform: Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake and later.
      Skylake Case: Intel NUC Skull Canyon; Iris Pro 580 + HDMI 2.0 with Parade PS175 LSPCON.
      Coffee Lake Case: Some laptops, e.g. Dell XPS 15 9570, are equipped with HDMI 2.0 and Parade PS175 LSPCON. If you have confirmed that your HDMI 2.0 is routed to IGPU and is working properly right now, you don't need to enable this driver, because your onboard LSPCON might already be configured in the firmware to work in PCON mode.
      3. Instructions
      Dump your kernel log and you should also be able to see something simillar to lines below.
