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

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.

      Making a High Sierra USB Installer Entirely From Scratch in Windows
      This is a proof of concept tutorial, to show it's possible to create a vanilla High Sierra installer, entirely from scratch, in Windows (even without App Store downloaded "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from a real Mac ).  @PikeRAlpha's link to Apple's Software Catalog provides us with all the URLs necessary to download the needed files directly from Apple instead of some dubious source from the internet...
       

      Pre-Requisites
      8GB or larger USB drive Boot Disk Utility v2.1.2017rev021b from @CVAD TransMac (free 15 day trial) Paragon Hard Disk Manager Free Download Installer Files Directly from Apple
      1)  Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist (Hint - search page for "InstallESD" to find its URL and others nearby)

      to a folder named "SharedSupport" on your Windows NTFS drive.  A browser download manager (eg Chrono for Chrome, dTA for FireFox) is handy since InstallESD is >4GB ---> allows you to pause/resume interrupted download...

      2)  Rename InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg
      3)  Edit InstallInfo.plist with WordPad/text editor to remove the chunklistURL and chunklistid keys for InstallESD, and renaming it from InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg (example of edited file attached to this post)...
      Note:  You can verify the SHA1 checksum of your InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg with the correct ones at this website.
      Boot Disk Utility to format the Installer USB and Restore OS X Base System HFS partition
      1.  Format USB with BDU & latest Clover ---> creates boot files in CLOVER partition + second FAT partition
      2.  Extract 4.hfs from \SharedSupport\BaseSystem.dmg with BDU --> save to it's local folder
      3.  Restore 4.hfs to USB second partition with BDU --->  2nd partition becomes bootable "OS X Base System"
      Paragon Hard Disk Manager to extend HFS Partition to its Full Extent
      Open Paragon Partition Manager Free and resize the second partition of the USB drive to the full size allowed.  Don't forget to apply the changes at the end...
      Transmac to Copy "SharedSupport" folder to OS X Base System
      1.  Open the TransMac program and navigate to the HFS+ Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents folder.  Right click anywhere in the empty space on the RHS pane and select "Copy Here"...
      2.  In the next stage, select the "SharedSupport" folder we created above as the "Files and Folders to be copied to the Mac Volume"...
      Clover Settings
      Clover configuration is required now.  The default config.plist (in the Clover FAT32 partition of the USB) maybe sufficient to boot your machine if you’re lucky.  If not, look at the Clover Wiki, Clover Instructions and Clover Configuration Thread for pointers and edit /EFI/Clover/config.plist accordingly with Wordpad or Notepad.
      The location of the important configuration files for Clover are summarized below
      config.plist--->EFI/CLOVER folder DSDT.aml with or without SSDT.aml--->EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (don't need one if your DSDT is auto patched by Clover in config.plist) Kexts eg FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement --->EFI/CLOVER/kexts/<osx version> or /Other. NB BootDiskUtility by default already has FakeSMC.kext installed here.  You may need to add VoodooPS2Controller for your laptop keyboard/trackpad to work. If UEFI booting, you will most likely need one of the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 drivers copied from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers-off/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. If you want to use the installer to run High Sierra in Windows on VMware, you can follow my guide to set up the Virtual Machine and replace Clover's default config with EFI_Clover for VMware (which is compatible to run in VMware).  In the screenshots below, I have attached the USB Installer (in this case PhysicalDrive7) to my macOS Virtual Machine.  Reboot the system to the USB installer to install High Sierra ...
      What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?
      Not a problem, as long as we get "OS X Base System" bootable, we can launch terminal from the Utilities Menu to copy the SharedSupport folder over to the Installer app.  In essence, we will build the full installer app = 5GB+ on the target HD eg "Macintosh HD", by copying both the "small" installer app = 15MB (on "OS X Base System") and the SharedSupport folder from the NTFS volume (mounted in this example on /Volumes/DATA)...
      -bash-3.2# cd / -bash-3.2# cp -R Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/ -bash-3.2# cp -R /Volumes/DATA/SharedSupport /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/  
      ...then start installation with the startosinstall utility...
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app  
      The above steps can be automated with the attached "startosinstall.command" script, which will assemble "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on "Macintosh HD" and launch the startosinstall utility targeting the "Macintosh HD" volume.  Copy/download to "Macintosh HD", then run in terminal (after attaching DATA USB with /Shared Support folder)...
      cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD" chmod +x startosinstall.command ./startosinstall.command Updated Download Links for macOS Mojave 10.14.3_18D109
      Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist  
      Note: In Mojave, Apple has removed the --converttoapfs NO and --applicationpath arguments from the startosinstall utility....
       
      eg to use startosinstall for the above section "What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?", the syntax is now
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD  
      This basically means that for Mojave, the default installation will always convert the target volume to the apfs file system.

      Salve, recentemente ho installato Mojave sul mio computer. È andato tutto bene soltanto che mi risulta impossibile fare l'accesso con il mio AppleID. Ne da iTunes, ne App Store etc.
      A volte mi dice che ho raggiunto il massimo di dispositivi su all'account quando non ne ho neanche uno collegato. Come posso fare? Rischio il ban dell'appleID?

      Fully optimizing DSDT & SSDT for OS X Sierra POST INSTALL on a Dell345MT with a i7 - 920(first gen) 
       
      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 after the above, This is now where I'm stuck
       a 100% correct DSDT and SSDT, from my understanding with a patched DSDT I wouldn't need any options selected in clover on the ACPI page?
       
      So 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?
      I know I have to decompile and patch them, but with my file names[DSDT table extract] not matching tutorials online I'm having a difficult time understanding which files I need.
      IS the RDST-DSDT.aml my DSDT? it is the biggest file.
      which ones that have SSDT in the filename is the SSDT(s) I need to patch?
       
      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
       
      System details
      i7 920 (first gen) very similar to nehelam
      GeForce 1050 2Gb (3 monitors connected all work, one acer on HD connection, two HP s2031 on HD, using adapters to change all ports on GPU card to HD for screens)
          display port, HDMI, and HD
      4x 1Gg + 2x 8Gb RAM running at 1066 after injecting smbios with ram info macOS sees all my ram correctly
      Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500Gb
       
      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
      I can post another info also if it helps
