same files for both system ;)

 

CodecCommander for Alc1150 is a good idea, go to Sierra 10.12.4 and let me know

Do I use the Clover folder you sent me for the Sierra install (on the USB), but replace the DSDT with the one you sent me that works?

 

The screenshot you took of the Clover Screen.  What is checked to install inside of the "Drivers64UEFI"  Option?  In the past I have just used OsxAptioFix2Drv-64

Hey hey,

 

Mind lending me a hand with my DSDT / checking it over?

 

Changes made to the DSDT:

- Injected layout-id (probably incorrectly as I still need the HDAEnabler)

- Fixed codepaths not returning a value by appending return (Zero)

- Removed random Arg0 after a return statement causing an unexpected end of file

- Fixed possible timeout error by changing 0x0FFF to 0xFFFF

- Removed unused locals

- Removed 20+ lines of Zero repeated

 

The SSDT.aml is the output from the latest version of ssdtPRGen.sh.

CLOVER.zip

for Alc662 u can try id 5, 7, 11 and 12, if dont work native, u need a AppleHdaPatcher, yes!

MaLd0n, wow, wow and more Wow.

 

Everything under 10.12.4 works like a complete charm, and the rig is smoking fast in booting up.

 

So Smoooooooth!

 

Thank you ever so much.

Welcome!

Enjoy!

Wow! I am floored by how much of a change a proper DSDT / clover configuration can make. I can't test HDMI audio out unfortunately so I can't comment on if that's working or not. The audio is working just fine without the hda enabler loading. The only issue I have left to fix on my system is the graphics not waking from boot, but that's a known AMD issue from the looks of it on <= 10.11.

 

Thanks a lot for taking a look at my setup MaLd0n!

 

Edit:

 

Looking at hwmonitor from rehabman / fakesmc it looks like only drive temps and ssd life remaining is showing. It use to include fan speeds, temps, etc. This could be due to my ssdt changes from earlier. Should I try adding the other ssdt-# files into my patched folder (after fixing any errors of course)?

fakesmc sensors cause many problems in many cases, but if u can test use it

Just replace in Clover/Kexts/Other

attachicon.gifFakeSMC.SENSORS.zip

and Check with HWMonitor

attachicon.gifHWMonitor.app.zip

 

Ah. I was using hwmonitor as a way to test speedsteping / monitor temperatures. Do you have a recommendation on something else to use?

 

I noticed in my verbose boot output I have ACPI errors relating GPX0 with a note on AE_NOT_FOUND. I tried searching console for ACPI, and found nothing. Is there a log file I can check to get the exact error?

AE_NOT_FOUND

it is common to see these in 10.12 with this new version of AppleACPIPlatform.kext. Older versions of OS X didn't do checks like this. ;)

 

Check ur speedstep use IGP

Does this look like it's stepping correctly? Even with a 90%+ idle system it's still hovering around the max frequency with minor drops.

generate NEW SSDT PM with Pike script

attachicon.gifssdtPRGen.command.zip

replace SSDT

run it

attachicon.gifOlarila.command.zip

reboot

 

Check again

 

Looks like it's still favoring the high frequency. I've attached ~/library/ssdtprgen's content, the ACPI folder contains the original ssdt/acpi, and the patched dsdt. It was complaining that they didn't exist so I copied them in, and ran it again.

 

Should I ignore the error, and run it again with the files deleted?

test it, just replace

attachicon.gifconfig.plist.zip

let me know

 

need sleep now, 2:50am, tomorrow we check it

 

Good Nit!

 

Thanks again for all of your help last night :).

 

The new config doesn't seem to change the speedstepping. Even with idle loads I'm still seeing the same frequencies for the most part.

very strange

take a test with Clover PM

Remove SSDT and replace config.plist

attachicon.gifconfig.plist.zip

 

Hmm it still doesn't appear to be stepping correctly. Should I try clearing the nvram? 

 

I checked the power widget in Windows (and recorded a log) to verify speed stepping is working correctly / there's no MSR lock.

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu

      I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
      "could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating" 
      And some other warnings afterwards.

      Thanks for accepting
      I recently installed Sierra  and I encounter the following problem ... When I restart or I start up my machine return to BIOS. If anyone knows and can any help be valuable Thank you very much. (When I boot from a Capitan disk in the same machine all  is running well.) Both discs with Clover in Legacy mode.

      Fully optimizing DSDT & SSDT for OS X Sierra POST INSTALL on a Dell345MT with a i7 - 920(first gen) 
       
      I have scoured the web, went to insanelymac chat on discord, no one replies to me but will reply to others, idk if my question is too advanced or too easy. 
       
      I know how this forum feels about 3rd party software, but that was just a crutch, I'm 100% vanilla now which is why I'm now posting for help because I eliminated the possibility having to do with 3rd party. Anyways, with that said I just have a couple things I want to be sure of.
       
      I used a n---bistro to get a App Store copy of Sierra, as I didn't know there were other ways of getting it now from a windows10 machine. anyways, I was able to build a vanilla usb. I couldn't figure the EFI out on my vanilla Sierra-usb, but the EFI on the usb-ni---bistro I had would boot my pre-install and post-install. so I was able to install Sierra. After a few days of figuring out how to remake a EFI and config, I broke my EFI.
       
      So back to my windows10 SSD and I found BootDiskUtility, and that made a EFI usb with the newest version of clover(r4895). So then swapped SSDs back to my OS X, plugged in the BDU-usb, after trial and error I got back into my Sierra. Now with the newest version of clover and no traces of ni---bistro anymore. Then copied the BDU-usb to my SSD EFI and was able to boot without a usb again!! YAY.
       
      Then starting working on fixing my web drivers for my gtx 1050 2gb. Installed the os update so i'm at 10.12.6, pulled my hair out figuring out the web drivers, eventually got them installed and the cuda fixed.
       
      Now all 3 of my screens work, yet windows can't sit 'between' screens, I just simply haven't looked for that fix yet as I want the sys itself running like a top first.
      My screen saver works, I don't get stuck in screensaver, I did once before, I believe lilu.kext and whatevergreen.kext fixed that.
      Now with all that I felt it was time to give my config.plist a diet cos it was bloated, I generated a config copied the clover settings check for check instead of coping text cos I'm trying to shrink it.
      Config.plist boots my system with DSDT-1FE7B5D7
       
      So that last thing on the list of optimizing I feel would be a 100% correct DSDT and SSDT cos then I could use a blank config.plist with my patched DSDT & SSDT correct
       
      but with the patching part that I think I understand how to do it now, but when I extract with F4 every file has RSDT in front of it, I have one that says RSDP.aml and RSDT.aml
      so would I just erase the RSDT from the beginning of each file then go from their, which would then leave me with a DSDT.aml and 17 SSDTs
       
      so if thats correct I would then decompile with iasl patch and compile and put the patched files into EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched/
       
      also how do I know if everything is patched correctly? like if my CPU is fully working and not just sorta working that way when I start running software like photoshop, unity, 10 chrome tabs, my hackintosh doesn't crash
       
      Thanks to anyone that can help me out, I've been working on my system for about two weeks and this is basically the wall I finally can't seem to figure out how to pass
