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.

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR HFS+ partition.
       
      To use those patched files you must follow HowTo to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
      The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.14 HFS Firmware check by crazybirdy.
       
      What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
      1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR partition.
      2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
      3. Patch to stop auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.14.
      4. This patched MBR OSInstaller will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition.
      5. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery).
      No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
       
      What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method?
      As the following....
      1. createinstallmedia method,
          needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format.
      2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12),
          install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format.
          We can manually format as MBR or GPT, HFS+ or APFS on installation screen like as 10.12.
          We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13 and 10.14 on installation screen now.
          Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, and 10.14 future versions, I think so.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version.
      3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+),
          install via stage 2 automatically, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition, and can be installed as update from previous version.

      How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?
      Just use MBR-EasyInstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
      Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q5. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to update 10.14.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
       
      How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Automatic-Method)?
      Just use 14MBRinstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
      Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.13.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q5. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave?

      Read HowTo Q/A Q9. How to update 10.14.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
       
      And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
       

       

       
      Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_1014fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.
