I have darkwake=8 in my config.plist but i had to add autopoweroff 0 in pmset for proper sleep.

And until now with no errors or fails.

You could try a different darkwake mode. 8 works for me, for you, you may need different as @cyberdevs said we tested for many hours to come up with a "generic" guide and as we both found out what works for one doesn't mean it works for the other.

Hi Guys great guide, I have the Gigabyte Z170-UD5-TH version which is very similar to the Gaming 5. Which SSDTs would I be able to use for my board? and which would I have to create? I prefer using individual SSDTs opposed to making a DSDT and constantly updating it every bios revision

 



Cheers :)

Hi there and thanks :)

 

You can use Pike's ssdtPRGen.sh to create all the SSDT's for your rig.

Hey,

You should not be using any of the SSDT's or DSDT from this guide for your board. As @cyberdevs said, you should use that script to create a SSDT.aml for CPU power management then create any other DSDT and SSDT's.

This is a great guide, I use many instances of the guide for my own. I am not using and DSDT's or SSDT's for my hack, doing it all form config.plist and its working good.

 

My system...

IMac 17,1 SMBIOS

GA-Z170X-Gamer 5

Intel i7-6700k

32 Gigs DDR4 2134 Mhz

Samsung 500GB SSD

GeForce GTX 970 - 4095 MB

Samsung 4k 27" Monitor

USB Create Labs SB Omni Surround 5.1 card.

 

-Fixed Sleep within terminal   sudo pmset -a standby 0

Sleep is working and all the rest of the stuff..

Thanks for your reply, I used the script to create SSDT for processor power management but I meant these? 

 

-HPET

-SATA

-DTGP

-SLPB

-DMAC

-DARWIN

-LPC

-XHCI

-PLUGIN TYPE

-HDAS to HDEF

-HDEF

-RTC

-IRQs

-SBUS

-BUS1

-MCHC

-ALS0

-SHUTDOWN

-LAN

-USBX

-PMCR

-EC

-IMEI

-PNLF

-HDMI

 

I noticed that there's a few included but would like to ask if theres any chance I can get the SSDT files for each? Instead of just having @MaLd0n patch the entire DSDT for me

That's great, I have been using clover's ACPI patches for my system in the past when I was using El Capitan and they work just fine. But using a patched DSDT or SSDT's will benefit you to reduce the use on third party kexts and Kext Patches and it will help to activate more/proper use of your hardware resources by the macOS.

 

Do you have PM and do you have HDMI audio with just clover's ACPI patches? I'm just curious because without a patched DSDT or the SSDTs I had to take some extra steps to activate them.

I ask this because without the patched DSDT or SSDT I had to use HDMIAudio.kext and I had to run Toleda's CloverHDMI Script to have the HDMI audio activated.

You can press F4 while you are in clover's boot menu to dump all the original DSDT and SSDt tables and once you dumped them you can ask @Maldon to patch them for you.

 

When he patches the DSDT or SSDTs you will have all these options in the list that you just posted fixed for you ;)

You can also use this app to create all the SSDTs for your system.

 

Copy the file iasl to this path: /usr/bin/iasl and run the app for creating the ssdt files.

About USB 3 ports on the Front panel of the Gaming 5 EU Board.

 

I have a Logitech m570 wireless mouse and its receiver was plugged into the front panel usb2 port. Now, everytime i inserted an usb drive into the USB 3 port on the front as well, the cursor started stuttering until the os was done reading it.

 

After i swapped the USB 3 connector cable from the socket connector closest to 24 pin connector to the one below it everything worked fine. The connector feels really wobbly too. I wonder why the usb3 connector cables always have to feel so ancient. On my last board I even had to plug the cable in on the outside usb3 port.

Thanks cyberdevs, I do have PM, no need for for HDMI Audio, my 4k monitor doesn't have speakers, USB 3.0 is working at 5gb. 

 

The only kexts I am using are 

 

OF COURSE

FakeSMC.kext

NETWORKING

AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext

Hey guys I've noticed that after using ssdtGen I am missing 5 SSDT's DMAC, MCHC, PMCR, PNLF and ALS0 when I compare my IOREG with a DSDT made by @MaLd0n.

Are these 4 SSDTs from the Gaming 5 patched folder universal or are they specific to @cyberdevs Gaming 5 system?

Send me a copy of your ACPI/origin folder so I can cross-examine those tables with mine.

Thankyou :) Here it is

This is my initial comparison, it is based on the files you've sent me. The SSDT tables the have a check mark are identical in both GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 and the GA-Z170-UD5

Download the DPCIManager Update Seed, Update IDs and save a screenshot from PCI List (Adjust the columns so I can read the whole info) send it to me. I need to compare some device IDs and I will tell you for sure if the you can use them or not.

Also does anyone know how to enable Nightshift on external display? I recently purchased a LG 38UC99-W 3840x1600 monitor and Nightshift isn't available on either DisplayPort at 75hz or HDMI (even when I try connecting it with USB C on my MacBook). 

 

Thankyou :D

@unknwon1221

 

from what I found we don't need PNLF, ALS0 and DMAC they are for laptops. but you can use MCHC, PMCR.

 

But a word of caution if your system performs normally with all the SSDT files that you already generated do not add any unnecessary files.

@cyberdevs

Thankyou for that information I appreciate it :)

Also would anyone know how to make my monitor LG 38UC99-W that is recognised as a 'tv' to be recognised as a 'display'? With the monitor being recognised as a 'tv' I'm unable to enable Nightshift :/

 

Thanks guys :D

Thankyou for that link :) but isn’t that only for people using a smbios that isn’t supported by nightshift? Not that their monitor is recognised as a ‘tv’?

Yeah I thought it might give you some info on how to troubleshoot the problem.

 

NightShift should work OOB are you sure that your config.plist is ok? are you using the latest Lilu.kext and nVidiaGraphicsFixup.kext?

Thankyou, I have both the latest

I recently updated my monitor to a LG 38UC99-W and since then the display has been recognised as a “Television” under system profile, and I believe that’s why I’m unable to get nightshift

I tried to connect the monitor to my MacBook and it is recognised as a TV too and Nightshift doesn’t work for it either

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (November 2019) Updated to Clover r5099 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added acidanthera VoodooPS2 kext v2.0.4 moved 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.

      First i will give you information about my specification
       
      Processor : Intel Core i7 6700
      Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3
      RAM : Team DDR4 8GB (2X4GB) 2133Mhz - up to 3000Mhz at XMP Profile
      Graphics Card : Palit Jetstream GTX960 4GB DDR5
      SSD and HDD : Fujitsu F200 for System + 500GB Seagate connect with add on PCI-e to Sata 3 Asmedia ASM1062 Chipset
      Other harddrive : 1 Natno SSD, 2x 2TB Seagate, 2x 500GB Seagate connect with internal SATA Controller Interface
      Wifi Card : TP-Link TL-WDN4800
      Monitor : 2x Asus VN248H (HDMI and Display Port with Converter)
      I need 2 new hardware to support this
      a. PCIe to Sata with 2 Ports Sata (because i use 2 important storage)
      b. PCI to USB 2.0 with NEC Chipset (i Plug USB Keyboard, Mouse and USB Installer here)
       
      My steps :
      1. Make USB installer El Capitan 10.11 Public Release with CreateinstallMedia method
      2. Install Clover Rev 3280 into it
      3. Basic configuration for BIOS (Disable serial port at IO section in bios, Boot with UEFI Mode,  Primary Graphics set to PCI-E, Sata Controller = AHCI, CSM Support = Disable, OS Mode = Windows 8/10 WHQL)
      4. My Masic Configuration for Config.plist (open with Clover Configurator Version 4.24)
          ACPI = tick FixHpet, AddDTGP, FixHDA, New Way, Delete Unused, AddHDMI, Drop OEM_DSM of HDA and SATA.
          Bootflag = nv_disable=1 -v dart=0
          Devices = USB Inject, Add Clock ID, Fix OwnerShip, Audio Layout = 2, Reset HDA
          Graphics = There is no change here
          Kernel and Kext Patches = FakeCPUIID 0x00306F2 and tick KernelHasswellE (Please anybody,, i dont want use this. Latest El Capitan 10.11.1 Beta is supported native to this processor right. Help me with kernel so i don't need to use fakeCpuIID again) I I use Clover R3292 and i don't need to use FakeCPUID again,, just tick Kernel Haswell-E and it will boot. So you need to use Clover R3292 and later
          Rt Variables = BooterConfig 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig 0x067
          SMBios = First i use SMBios MacPro 6.1 but later i just need to use iMac17,1 because My System build is identical with iMac17,1 hardware (SkyLake System)
          System Parameters = Inject Kexts Detect and Tick Inject System ID
      5. Boot from Your USB Installer and do everything like normal until you get into desktop
      6. Install Kext Utility,  
      7. Copy "AppleGraphicsControl.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to Desktop and then edit info.plist at "AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist" and look at OKitPersonalities->AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy->ConfigMap and change "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - Config1" to "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 - None". Reinstall this kext with Kext Utility.
       
      Note : the reason you need to "Config1" of "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6" because it's BOARD-ID for MacPro6,1. so if you use SMBios of iMac17,1 then Check your Board-Id (you can use Clover Configurator and open your config.plist and see your Board-id at SMBios Section) and change "Config2/Config1" to "none". Now i use "Mac-DB15BD556843C820" as my Board-ID because i use iMac17,1 SMBios  so i need to change ConfigMap that related to it 
       
      8. Install Nvidia Web Driver version 346.03.02f02, and restart.
      9. Change bootflag "nv_disable=1" to "nvda_drv=1"
      10. After you get into desktop, get Latest Beta Build 10.11.1 Seed. You need to change seed catalog update first (google it).
      11. Do update to 10.11.1 Build 15B38b and restart
      12. Boot again with bootflag "nv_disable=1", and copy "NVDAStartupWeb.kext" from "System/Library/Extensions" to desktop. And open info.plist at "NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist". Look at "IOKitPersonalities->NVDAStartup" and change "NVDARequiredOS - 15A284" to "NVDARequiredOS - 15B". Save,, and reinstall this kext with Kext Utility
      13. IMPORTANT, if you use SMBIOS MacPro 6.1 or iMac 15.1 and some type (I forgot) then do "7Th Step" above again.
      14. Restart and reuse "nvda_drv=1"
      15. Now you have El Capitan 10.11.1 at your SKYLAKE Computer
       
      Problem
      1. Internal Sata is still not function, it show "Intel 10 Series Chipset" but "unknown" for Harddrive Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      2. USB 3.0 is not function too, but it shot at USB System Report Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      3. When you open Browser Applications, Movies or Something like that then it will freeze for 10 seconds. I check console and i found "NVDA(Graphics): Channel exception! Exception type = 0x8 DMA Engine Error (FIFO Error 8)" Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      4. Address of Sound HDEF is different with my DSDT. Normally it should be "0x001B0000" but at my board's DSDT is "0x001F0003". So ScriptCommand of Toleda for ALC is not work anymore, we need to change that script command from HDEF-B to HDEF-F (just look at the script)
      5. We need to change Device HDAS to HDEF at address "0x00fF0003", but something weird after 5times my system freeze and i look at Audio System Report it suddenly show all of AUDIO Interface , before not. Solved by Mod Bios to disable IOAPIC 24-119 Entries or Patch Apple APIC
      6. I look at my Graphics/Displays Sytem report and at PCIe Lane Width, it show "x4" or "x8". Damn,, it should be "x16". It will random change after freeze from "x4" or "x8" My bad, i just need to plug out and plug in again. Just assembly case

      First my Old Threads is here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308178-el-capitan-wih-i7-6700-skylake-gigabyte-ga-z170-hd3-palit-jetstream-gtx960/

      My Computer Specifications
      1. Processor : Intel Core i7 6700
      2. Motherboard : Gigabyte Z170-HD3
      3. VGA Card : Palit Jetstream GTX960 4GB DDR5
      4. Wifi Card ; TP-Link TL-WDN4800
      5. PCI-E to Sata = Bafo PCI-e to 2 Sata3 and 2 e-Sata
      6. PCI to USB 2.0 - NEC Chipset
      7. Main Harddisk Harddisk : Fujitsu SSD 120GB + Seagate 500GB that plug into Bafo PCIe to Sata3
      8. Other Harddisk : Natno SSD 12GB, 2x Seagate 2TB, Seagate 500GB, all of it are plug into onboard Sata Chipset Controller (But Unknow at El Capitan / 10th Intel Chipset)
      9. RAM : Team 3000Mhz 8GB (2x4GB)
      10. Display : Asus VN248H
      11. Clover version : 3280

      My Step :
      1. Because Internal Sata Chipset and USB 3.0 are not supported yet, so i clone my Fujitsu 120GB SSD from my Hacbook Asus X455LA that already installed El Capitan Build 15B30a with Carbon Copy Cloner
      2. I use MacPro 6.1 as SMBIOS and use FakeCPUIID of Intel 4790k (0x0306C3)
      3. Remove CPUSensor.kext from "FakeSMC.kext/Contents/Plugins" if you don't do this it will be stuck at ACPI log verbose.
      4. I try boot from USB that already install Clover 3280 and it boot. I use "-v nv_disable=1 dart=0"
      5. Then at desktop, i install nvidia web driver 346.03.02F02 (before that you need to modif it,, use pkgutil --expand bla bla ba,, google it and change required os to "15B" then use pkgutl --flatten bla bla to repackage) then i change info plist from AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugin/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/info.plist and change line that contain board-id of MacPro 6.1 from Config2 to none
      6. Then i install that kext,, and restart
      7. i use "-v dart=0 nvda_drv=1 and it will need more time than usual to get login form,, yeah i did it. But there is some bugs
       
      Bugs :
      1. Internal sata is not function
      2. USB 3.0 is error too,,  at verbose i see "error mantisa log"
      3. Sometimes my system get freeze for a few seconds. I thinks this is error from Nvidia web driver,, i see nvdia error log from "sudo dmesg"

      At last,, sorry for my bad english
      Thanks
       
      This is for screenshots

      Hey.
      I have a Dell Vostro 3267 system unit. It has a Skylake processor Intel Core i5-6400 with integrated graphics Intel HD 530, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD. The monitor is connected via HDMI.
      I faced a problem that if I enter Hackintosh in a sleep mode, and then I press something on the keyboard, the system unit wakes up (I hear as coolers begin to turn), but the monitor does not react in any way.
      I tried to disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cord, tried to inject EDID in config tried to change SMBIOS on MacMini8,1, but it did not change the situation.
      How to solve the problem?
       
      P.S.
      All in Mojave 10.14.6
