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.

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

Appreciate your work :) so is it alright if I use these on my board (DMAC, MCHC, PMCR, PNLF and ALS0)?

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

      Hi everyone,

      I'm trying to install MacOS Catalina on the ACER C22-760 (i3 6100U, 520 HD)

      I did all the usual prep to install the system, especially as I've done hackintoshes with the same specs in the past.

      But after the moment it boots up, the screen goes black. So I decided to install the system booted in 0x12345678 and then fix the graphics.

      Long story short, with the installation done I've tried every single combination to fix the graphics and found out that:
      Booting with a 0x12345678, a 1080p monitor is detected, but obviously, no acceleration. Booting only with AAPL,ig-platform-id set to 19160000, the system boots with complete acceleration but no monitor attached into any framebuffer. About this Mac reports a 1280 x 1024 monitor (Found using Anydesk and ioreg remotely.) Changing the connector type to DP or HDMI, Internal o External, platform-id is useless. This system is getting me anxious. Because I don't find any fix for it.
      Someone can help me out? Love ya!
      PD: The system is an All In One with no HDMI port.

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (March 2020) Updated to Clover r5105 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
        Various Tweaks over Last months The main branch in my github repo is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle seems to work on Sierra, HighSierra, Mojave and Catalina. There is an OpenCore branch in the repo as an alternative to Clover. This guide was developed for a Clover implementation. But the thread has evolved to include discussion of both Clover and Opencore for these systems: T460 and T470 family of ThinkPads.
       
      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.

      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      Installed Catalina 10.15.4 (19E287) Vanilla with OpenCore on my HP Elitedesk 800 G2 Mini.

      Everything is working (Wifi isn't but I'm using Ethernet anyway) but my second display.

      I'm trying to get them both connected via DisplayPort as the only other output on my computer is VGA.

      I've tried manually setting the framebuffer arguments, but I cannot get it to output to both displays. Yet if I unplug one and restart, it will use the other one just fine.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
