After install High Sierra should I still need NvmExpressDxe-64.efi?

 

Update: I removed NvmExpressDxe-64.efi from CLOVER/drivers64UEFI and nothing change. Everything working without a problem. My High Sierra is fully working.

Well done!

 

Could I please ask you to post your config.plist and DSDT.aml? I would like to take a peek at how your Intel HD IGPU configuration looks like.

 

Cheers :)

What's your hardware profile, motherboard and graphics? Curious if it's anything related to the EVGA 660 or ASUS Maximus VII Impact BIOS. Is you IGPU disabled? I found that enabling both the HD4600 IGPU and the Nvidia 660 the artifacts are not as bad or as often. I have the IGPU disabled as I experience Safari freeze and reboot. iTunes also crashes with the HD4600 enabled.

iMac 13,2 System definition

MB: GA-Z77N-WIFI

GPU: EVGA GTX660 SC

CPU: i7 3770K

 

IGPU is disabled pretty much ever since I built this machine about 5 years ago. I can't believe it was such a long time ago...

Anyway, I'll wait until Nvidia releases the drivers before making any changes to the configuration because besides some artifacts here and there, the system runs absolutely great.

 

Setting up desktop wallpaper to change for example every minute seems to help keep the artifacts away, switching between Spaces and closing a fullscreen app seems to clear out the artifacts. After wake from sleep and restart there are no artifacts for about 10-45 minutes. Opening the Applications folder (shown in grid view) from dock seems to instantly trigger artifacting.

Hey bros, do you get some text on welcome logo (before moving to clover screen) when installing 10.13? I get some and I think it will come after putting apfs.efi in drive64uefi. But if i don't put apfs.efi, clover doesn't recognize my disk which was formatted as APFS.

Can I remove that text or not?

Hi there, these texts are apfs logs and you can avoid seeing them by installing CsmVideoDxe

Is there any workaround without using CsmVideoDxe? I don't use that driver as I have CSM disabled in BIOS (otherwise I do not get native 4K resolution with my Nvidia card in Clover).

On my system, I've CsmvideoDxe installed and CSM disabled for UEFI BIOS video card: it works.

I have the same question, and also the same situation with you :D

Now I know this is apfs logs but actually i don't want to see it :)). You know, I'm using Gigabyte mobo, when it appears, the "Gi" will go up slowly but "gabyte" stay there :lol:

Is that the only "solution" to this? As since I did not install Clover in the ESP it seems the CsmVideoDxe trick isn't working.

Works only for UEFI, not ESP Legacy install

I know, that's why I ask  :D It's not a big deal though. When High Sierra is released I'll wipe my SSD and install Clover in UEFI  :)

Did you try UEFI in Optiplex 790 ?

Yes and it refused to boot Clover (that is: Installed Clover in UEFI mode, rebooted into Bios -> Boot mode -> UEFI)  :hysterical: I had to restore my EFI partition with an empty image in order to be able to reinstall Clover in legacy and make it work again

 As far as I know there are two options to avoid the APFS log from showing before the clover bootloader starts:

 

1. Option one is to use a modified version of APFS.efi which has the logs disabled, although it will show few lines upon load

2. Using the CsmVideoDxe.efi to prevent the logs from showing (Thanks @chris1111 for finding this solution)

 

CSM is also disabled in my BIOS/UEFI settings. I see only few lines which the disappear in a sec.

My UEFI tests on the Dell Optiplex were good in creating a simple part Fat 32 and moving Clover manually
First I made tests on a USB key in FAT 32 at the start and I activate UEFI in the Bios

 

F12 and I boot on in UEFI to the USB and I  select any OS  :)
Its work but not better then Legacy  :rolleyes:
I do not find very stable after the bios is Freeze (Scaring)  :hysterical:  :P
I handed in Legacy

I'll try to install Clover in UEFI again later.  :)

 

Anyone knows how to fix this, by the way? I can't turn Bluetooth off within High Sierra:
 

14:29:49.156472 +0200	kernel	**** [IOBluetoothHostController][RequestPowerStateChangeFromUserSpace] -- ON -> OFF (thread: 0xf160)
14:29:49.156487 +0200	kernel	**** [IOBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport][RequestTransportPowerStateChange] -- entering -- ON -> OFF -- this = 0x3000 ****
14:29:49.156491 +0200	kernel	**** [IOBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport][RequestTransportPowerStateChange] -- exiting -- Power state change in progress -- cannot perform RequestTransportPowerStateChange() -- ON -> OFF -- this = 0x3000 ****
14:29:49.156495 +0200	kernel	**** [IOBluetoothHostController][RequestPowerStateChangeFromUserSpace] -- ON -> OFF (thread: 0xf160) -- returning 0xe00002d8 (kIOReturnNotReady)

Though, when I reboot bluetooth actually is turned off.

Here is my DSDT and config.plist but you can't find anything about IGPU 'cause I am not using any settings for IGPU in Graphics section on config.plist. I am just using IntelGraphicsFixup.kext and Lilu.kext for IGPU

CSM is also disabled in my BIOS/UEFI settings. I see only few lines which the disappear in a sec.

 

I am using second method and no logs anymore even CSM enabled/disabled doesn't matter.

 

But my boot time now very slow. I don't know is this effect the boot time. My boot time now almost 1 min with NVME.

I don't think your boot time should be affected with the csmvideodxe. you can boot with verbose mode to see why it's taking that long.

But now I have a wifi problem after restart or new start my BCM94360CD combo card does not connect to the wifi. I can just make a connection after reset the modem. But every restart I must the reset to modem to connection with my wifi. I deleted all network settings restart and create a new connection but it doesnt work. What can I do?

In which stage on the boot you get the delay? right after the HID: Legacy Shim 2?

 

and about your wifi I'm not sure what could be the cause of the problem you have. you can send me your efi folder and I will take a look to see if I can find what's wrong.

Does anyone else have any issue with the recovery partition disappearing in High Sierra? First boot after fresh install it shows up in boot.log and i can set a custom entry for it but even with the custom entry it does not show up on repeat reboots. Extremely puzzling. I'll do a reinstall and post logs.

 

I made clean install GM and no recovery partition? I check diskutil list it show "not mounted". Maybe apple hide it on GM?

 

did you try a fresh install?

Verbose is coming HID: Legacy Shim 2 and stopped there. Thats mean after the HID: Legacy Shim 2 right?

 

I also see logs when I try shutdown and restart is that normal?

 

I think I fixed my wifi for right now. Here is what I do; I deleted all connections and settings from my devices. And go to main Computer which it is connection with Ethernet. I open the modem settings from browser and reset all settings changed SSID and Password then connect all devices with this new SSID and Password. 

 

Looks everything works now except Slow Boot and logs :)

 

I attached my EFI;

On my system, I've CsmvideoDxe installed and CSM disabled for UEFI BIOS video card: it works.

 

Good to know, thanks.

Same thing here. Also using APFS.efi seems to increase the time between BIOS screen finishing and Clover loading.

 

 As far as I know there are two options to avoid the APFS log from showing before the clover bootloader starts:

 

1. Option one is to use a modified version of APFS.efi which has the logs disabled, although it will show few lines upon load

2. Using the CsmVideoDxe.efi to prevent the logs from showing (Thanks @chris1111 for finding this solution)

 

CSM is also disabled in my BIOS/UEFI settings. I see only few lines which the disappear in a sec.

 

So, the two alternatives still both show a few lines? That's mildly annoying. I won't worry about a fix until they can be removed completely, but I appreciate the reply.

      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      For any system kext installation\modification you need to boot with config_debug.plist (or disable SIP manually)
      Also on Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       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       5.  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).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      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)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
