[Guide 2018] Z820 - SIERRA, The great guide (Sucess)

197 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Got some time to run through the Sierra upgrade on my Z820

I am running the v1 E5-2670 (dual cpu), with AMD HD Radeon 7970; the graphic card works out of the box, no tweaking/hacking needed.

 

For some reason my network adapter would not detect with the kext in this guide, I had to use AppleIntelE1000e.kext instead.

 

Sleep is working, and PM is too. I ran Geekbench, and single-Core score is 2762, and Multi-Core score is 18836 --that seems low for dual CPU system. How do I check to see if two CPU are working together?

 

One issue I have is after logging in, I get a Panic report that pops up. I am still figuring out what it is that causes the boot flag CPUS=1 in that Panic report:

hi Dr.droid. Are you using cpus=1?  You don't have to use it , with voodootsync.kext . Maybe this is the origin of the kp ant low performance in multi. Install voodootsync.kext and test it.

 

I don't know why ethernet is not recognized by IntelMausiEthernet.kext. If the classic kext works for you, ok. Could you postyour exactly model of the ethernet adpater? maybe in V1 model is diferent?

 

Please, could you post more details about sleep? do you have a complete sleep or only a monitor's sleep?

 

 

 

..and

 

org.tgwbd.driver.NullCPUPowerManagement	1.0.0d2

 

are you using NullCPUPowerManagement?

Bilbo:

 

cpus=1 flag isn't selected in Clover > Boot tab. I don't know why the panic alert shows that.

 

I'll recopy/replace the current VoodooTSCSync.kext and see.

 

About sleep: both system and monitor sleeps and wake up, no problem. I didn't make any changes outside of this guide.

 

Edit:

The report shows  NullCPUPowerManagement, but I did not load that, that's weird.

weird... maybe nvram is not saving the values. did you installed r.c. scripts when you installed clover internal HD?

Yes, RC scripts was selected to install on the internal HD.

 

System Report shows two cpus. Does HWMonitor showing CPU x## normal?

Panic report looks funky,

 

System model name: MacPro5,1 (Mac-F221BEC8)

 

Then later in it -

 

Model: MacPro6,1, BootROM MP61.0120.B00, 16 processors, 8-Core Intel Xeon E5, 2.59 GHz, 128 GB, SMC 2.20f18

 

You using some ssdt / config.plist found elsewhere?  Im guessing not ...

 

 

Check S/L/E for nullcpupowermgmt, that does indeed look to be loaded.

 

but the pstates and the hwmon appears to indicate otherwise .. interesting indeed, could be a bogus report as for all the panics i seen i never had one pop up on login ...

@will move applealc over to /other.

 

seems my system is not liking  [ com.astekcorp.driver.AstekFusion2Family(2.62) ]

 

Otherwise it's running stable, no random crash. I need to get the performance up, though.

@Dr Droid

 

I happen to have the same cpus but I'm out of town till Sunday.

 

I'll send you my EFI folder and everything else to try.

 

Geekbench 4 scores should hover around 28.000 with the dual 2670 setup with Sierra.

@amadeusex That's awesome, thanks in advance!!

 

My score in El Capitan was around there.

 

I use an external USB audio interface for video editing and El Capitan drops it once in a while, it's annoying.  Sierra doesn't drop the USB audio interface, but a weird drop in performance, could be something I'm doing wrong.

How did you get the report? could you repeat it again? ...

 

moreover... do you have more than one hd system.... are you sure that you are booting clover from the right HD / efi ?

@Bilbo:

 

1) After logging in, a dialog pop up, and I click on "Report" button to see the log of problem.

 

2) Only one HD: Samsung SSD. It's only drive in the system to boot on.

 

 

 

 

How did you get the report? could you repeat it again? ...

 

moreover... do you have more than one hd system.... are you sure that you are booting clover from the right HD / efi ?

 


UPDATE: I got the performance to jump to Single-Core Score: 3007; Multi-Core Score: 28548.

 

What I did:

 

Redownload [ Dual CPU.dmg.zip ] and copied "SSDT-1.aml" (from Files/Step 4)  to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/.

This SSDT-1.aml file that affect the performance.

 

On the otherhand, the panic notice is still popping up after login. 

 

Will do stress test and see how rock solid stable it is.

So, something was wrong with your PM creation. Well, if it is good for you... ok.

 

 

About the "Your computer was restarted..." pop up message I have to say that I had the same error in Mavericks, a long time ago. When I made a lot of experiments with clover, kernels.. olds methods.... . The error came up suddenly when I tested yosemite in other disk. The weird is when I back to the original disk...  the window error continued ... and I never knew why. I reinstalled the so, clover, reset bios, even I did a clear cmos reset.... I get that error  during one year. Only I get rid when I installed el capitan in a new disk. It has been the weirdest thing in my hackintosh-life. 

 

I think it has to be related with some obscure and maybe corrupted persistence setting I-don't-know-where.... nvram? bios? ... I don´t know.

 

In fact, this error is reporting a log from one system that you don´t have. :surprised:

It's so weird. I used a fresh SSD drive, that never had an installation before.

I wonder if it has to do with me started with Sierra 10.12.3 installer, and apply updates to 10.12.6; because I the app store don't have the option for me to download 10.12.6.

 

I will try a few things, and try to track down the source of that panic dialog, it's annoying---and for peace of mind.

I'm going to give this another go, fresh install and keep a closer eye on which part that causes the panic dialog to appear.

 

Does anyone have a link to download the 10.12.6 ?

Yo have the indirect link in my guide. That link will give you the link in apple store.

 

When you reboot in clover, press F11 to reset nvram , in clover screen.

Hi guys . I have a big problem. My z820, apparently is dead:

 

No post, no video, fans in ultra - high speed after a few seconds.... :(

I did a clear cmos. it didn't work.

 

Does anyone know what can I do to check what is happening ? :( :(

The download button didn't work on my MacBook, but I managed to download 10.12.6 with a different MacBook. It might be because I already have Sierra on there.

 

hello,

 

you can use that link https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-sierra/id1127487414?ls=1&mt=12

 

regards,


It sounds like a bad motherboard.

Maybe reseat all the RAM and power supply to the board.

Hi my friend

Any news about the motherboard ?

Did you try with the least possible amount of ram ? Single CPU ?

Well , after this week with the site down,  let's go back with our bussiness.... ^_^

 

Yessss .. good news . :)

I was about to throw all away, and really sad thinking in my options , when reading some advice and some thing in HP forums, I decided do "jumper crisis" method: I thought that it's not useful in my case, but anyway,  I tried, and... bingo... the motherboard resurrected miraculously. It seems that the guilty was my raid pci card (lsi 9260): When the motherboard died, I was changing the graphic card and to do that, I have to unplug the lsi card too. Somehow, the card blocked the motherboard.

After do jumper crisis - method,  and the resurrection , trying to plugin the card again, I get an obscure "PCI ERROR on slot 1"  bios screen. So I decided throw the card to the garbage. Without it, the z820 boots normally. I passed all hardware test with the z820 utilities. More than 12 hours. The hardware seems ok. I bought a lsi card a few days ago.

I'm still testing , just in case, but everything seems ok.  It has been in a big scare

btw, crisis  recovery  jumper is not described in any official documentation. Only the threat linked above and even in that thread there is no any official answer  . HP is an absurd company.

      THE GREAT GUIDE
      HIGH SIERRA + Z820

       
      ********
      10/07/2018
       
       
      *********************************************************************************
      ————————————————————————————————————————
      ————————————————————————————————————————
       
      (from El Capitan's guide)
      (from Sierra's guide)
       
      Introduction:
       
      Hi everybody. 
      Again, a new guide version, updated to High Sierra. I hope it will be useful for you all. This time, the update is easy. Basically, the 100% of Sierra’s guide is still valid for High Sierra. The guide has been updated to update links, kexts versions … etc, and some parts try to be more clear. Just there are some important topic to keep in mind:
       
      1. What's new?.
      There is a new and absolute important setting to install High Sierra. We have to activate “legacy ACPI cpu tables” in Advanced Section, in BIOS. Without this option enabled, we will get a KP. 
      This option changes completely the structure of the SSDT needed for PM. We have to get rid old SSDT versions, if you extracted them with this option disabled. And all SSDT generated by ssdtPRGen, too. And, if your DSDT has the “SSDT-1-CpuDef” code injected, (following my previous guides, to skip "No ACPI Processor declarations found in the DSDT!" error, (see PM section) ) you will have to delete that part, because the DSDT will cause a KP. A better method is described in this guide. No need of add strange code into DSDT.

       
      2.Can I use my old files from Sierra´s EFI folder?
      The most important, yes. You can keep your config.plist and your DSDT(see point N.1) … saving tons of time. You have to use the new drivers64Uefi files installed by new clover version, and update the kexts versions of main kexts. The specific kexts for our dear machine, USB3, Astek driver, remains in same version.Of course, I provide of all links and files (into my stuff folder) in this guide.
       
      3. So, do I Need repeat again every step of this guide?.
      If you comes from Sierra´s guide, no. After 1stboot and graphics divers install, you can use your previous files (see point 1.) reboot and jump directly to PM section. 
      For new users, Yes, sure.

      4. Consider any part of this guide open to discuss.
      If you see something wrong, or which could be improved, please, just say it, and I’ll fix it. English is not my native language. If you can’t understand some step, or something could be best written, please, just say it and I’ll fix it too
       

      FOR 26x7 and 26x3 USERS!!!. Finally, there a Fix to this models. It´s under test, but I think it should work. Check out FIRST the last section of this guide.
       
      5. And please, (this is for "anonymous" users) don't PM me with personalquestions. No need for that.Any question can be answered openly.
       
       
      Ok, let’s go.
       
       
       
      PART I
       
      1-BIOS SETUP
       
       
      This guide is for UEFI systems. This is not important to follow this guide except in Clover installation section. Keep in mind it to adapt some settings if you need use legacy-bios mode. 
       
      If you don’t need any special option, and you have been playing with options, reset the bios to default settings.Later, you will be able to change and test, if you need some specific option. The next section describe the essential options. 
       
      6. The main BIOS options are:
       
      In storage: 
      set ACHI mode (IMPORTANT).
       

       
       
      Set boot order. UEFI first, (for me), USB first and HD second. 
       


       
      Security : 
      Device Security: I like disable unused devices (scu controller and serial port). Optional.



       
      Disable Vt-d: Disabled. IMPORTANT. 
       

       

       
      Secure boot. Disabled (...to boot with non signed OS). 
      I use UEFI boot, but I keep legacy support active. This is optional.
       

       
       
      In Power :
      Set Runtimepower management to Enabled. This option will allow Power Management later. About the rest of options, I’m not sure of the impact in performance. Set them by default by the moment. Not important for the guide. Only remeber for further tests that with Pcie Performance Mode enabled, power boost is disabled. Idle Power Savings manage sleep policies.


       
       
      In Advanced:
       
      Set PXE, Storage and Video to EFI. (for me) , or legacy, as your want. If you have a graphic card non EFI-compliant, you can set video in Legacy, keeping an UEFI boot.
      Don’t forget set thunderbolt policy in Legacy mode.
       

       

       
      And Now, the essential setting for High Sierra: 
       
      -Enable “Legacy ACPI CPU Tables”
       


       

       

      _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
       
       
       
      PART II:
       
      INSTALLATION
       
      7- MEDIA CREATION
       
      (This guide assume you have a MacOs running. I have no idea how do it on PC)
       
      -Important: Download HighSierra dmg only from Apple.Don´t use suspicious dmgs or Isos. It’s not longer available to search in Apple Store, since Mojave release. Go to this link, and click in “Get macOS high Sierra” (at mid of the page). It will open the apple store download link. The dmg is downloaded in /Applications folder. Let the file in Applications folder. (and keep one compressed copy for future attempts)

       
      -Format one USB stick with common settings:
       


       
      Go to erase tab, select GUID partition table in options, and Mac Os Extended (Journaled) as Filesystem. Name the partition as “USB”. Ok to Apply.   
      On a terminal window, type (copy and paste) :  
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction  
      Enter and type your admin password. It will take 10-15 minutes. (When it finish, you’ll see the prompt again)  
      8. INSTALLING CLOVER.
       
      -Download Clover from here. Version used to make this guide: Clover_v2.4k_r4658.
      -Download Clover Configurator from here. It makes easier edit config.plist file and we can use a lot of clover features easily. Now there is a “global edition”
      -Download plisteditor pro demo for edit info.plist files.
      -Download my High Sierra stuff folder. (at the end of the guide)
      -Additional tools: One tool for install kexts, fix permission and rebuild cache. I use Kext helper from rampage’s dmg, although I need always force quit. I don´t like the rest of utilities. This is a personal option. Also you can download  EFI mounter (from download sections of this site). CloverConfigurator mounts EFI too, but maybe with this utility is easier.
       
      -Install Clover in the USB. On first screen, don’t forget change the install location in order to do not install on your Internal HD. Select your USB stick.
      Click on Customize. Choose “Install for UEFI booting only” and “Install Clover in the ESP” as main options (if your system is UEFI-based) This is optional: choose your favorite Theme. In Drivers64UEFI select: Now is longer section. It´s only because is more exact showing the drivers installed. We have to keep selected the default options and add the same additional drivers. Keep in mind two important things:                   -There is a new driver, APFS driver, for the “new” filesystem. This driver is now essential, in order to allow clover “see” HDs formatted with this FS. It´s activated by default. 
                       -The OSxAptiopnFix2Drv has a new version, v3.
                ... The conclusion of this long explanation, is that we have to add to the default selection of drivers: 
       
                                - EmuVariableUefi-64
                               - OsxAptionFix3Drv
       

      Let the rest of option unselected and Click on Install.
       
       
      9- CONFIGURE CLOVER

      When clover finishes, it will mount EFI partition. Time to modify it. You’ll find all necessary files in my folder. There are three things to modify: config.plist, drivers, and kexts
       
      9.1 Config.plist
       
      The default config.plist is not useful for us. Replace it by mine (folder n.2)
      But take a look to options (with clover configurator) to understand my options in order to be able to adapt them for your specs or your preferences. It’s a basic config.plist. I could add more options or fixes. but is a good idea install with minimum options. 
       
           Acpi section.
          All fixes in ACPI section has been removed except some minor fixes in 2 subsection, smart ups option, etc. SmartUps it’s not important now, but it will be later. So I prefer activate this option. 
          The most important, The rename usb devices patches are included. 
       
          

          Boot section
          Bootflags needed are only -v and npci=0x2000. Of course -v is optional only to see the boot process. You can deactivate it when you finish.
       
          
       
          Any option activated in Boot Graphics/ Cpu/Device/Disable driver
       
          Gui options. These are only personal preferences.
       
          
       
          Graphics. AnyGraphic injection annd any option activated. At least, no needed for my 1080ti card. Check it out for your card video.
       
          
       
          An essential section. Kernels Patches needed.
       
          
       
          RT Variables. BooterConfig, and Csr to deactivate security policy in Sierra. The info values are taken from smbios.
       
          
       
          SMBIOS.  Set it to Mac Pro 6,1. 
       
          
       
                    IMPORTANT—>press “generate new” repeatedly to get one random fresh serial number
       
          System parameter: 
       
          
       
       
      9.2 -Drivers64UEFI folder.
       
      As usual, delete VBoxHfs-64driver and replace it by HFSPlus.efi. (from my folder).

           
       
       
      9.3 Kexts folder:
       
      Add my Kexts from my stuff to /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/10.13
       
      They are:

           
       
      These are the versions Updated since Sierra´s guide.
       
      FakeSMC.kext. If you remember, I have some unexpected KP due to fake smc sensors. Well, I have searched a bit about this, and testing. The main topic is keep the fake smc version and sensors kext of same version or branch. There are several branchs developing              different versions (slice, rehabman, kozleck, etc), after test, and test, I think the most stables and those which gives me best sensor readings is kozeck version. I attach the v1440 from kozleck. In this step I only use FakeSMC kext, withput sensors kexts. Anyway, if you have a better version, use it. Just, don´t forget no use the sensors Kexts.   
      VoodooTSCync.kext, to avoid boot with -x (from rampagdev, dual cpu dmg). You’ll find several versions into my folder.I haven’t noticed any change using the generic or the specific version. I think that is not important for our platform.                  The customize method is:

       

       
               Anyway, I provided the generic version and customized versions for every cpu.

       
      IntelMausiEthernet.kext . Kext for the ethernet card from rehabman. (2018-0424version). It will allow have internet connection on first boot.  AppleIntelE1000e.kext. Kext for ethernet card from here (2017-10-18 version). (Change of  server if you have problems downloading) <<<< update. Use this better than IntelMausiEthernet.kext
       
      UsbInjectall, for USB2 from rehabman( 2018-0822version)  
      And add to /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/others
       
       

       
       
      Lilu kext (from here, 1.2.7version) NOTE: The kext for download is available in " LILU-X.X.X-RELEASE.zip" link  
      WhateverGreen.kext (from here, 1.2.2 version) old NvidiaGraphicsFixup proyect has been integrated into this proyect. It's useful for nvidia and amd graphics cards.  NOTE: The kext for download is available in " WhateverGreen-X.X.X-RELEASE.zip" link  
      This couple of kexts avoid black screen booting with 6,1 smbios. Is quite important keep in mind the versions of these kexts keeping the right versions among this kexts. Prior to update some of them, you have to check in original websites if it's is compatible with the rest. These versions are ready to work with 10.13.6. 
       
      Thats all. We have our usb installer ready. Copy in a folder all stuff necessary to repeat the process and copy it to the USB stick. You will have it available after first boot.
       
      Reboot from the USB stick and install High Sierra. 

       
      10- INSTALLATION

       
      Some advices:
           -Use only USB2 ports, preferably the front USB2 port.
           -Don’t use USB hubs, or cable extenders… (personal issues)
           -Unplug any other usb device
           -Be sure that you have plugged your internal sata drive to one of the two internal achi sata controller.
       

       
           -The boot process may be slow, (and with terrible and apocalyptic errors). Be patient
           -Maybe, the boot stucks with the error “consideredRebuildKernel …. blabla”. Just reboot again.
           -If you have two monitors, shutdown one can help with graphical errors.
           -Plug your graphic card in PCI Slot 2.
           -For inexperienced users: On first screen, go to disk utility and erase the Volume. (APFS and GPT). Quit the utility and return to first screen. Choose Install.
           -The process is splitted in two steps. The first step promises take only 4 or 5minutes … and now, it’s true!!!. It will take4 or 5 minutes(with a SSD).
           -After this first reboot, in clover boot screen, you will see more partitions than expected. APFS file system manage more partitions in a more complex way (physical layer, logical layer… bla, bla). Select  the new internal HighSierra boot installer partition, not the usb installer. It will finish the  process. This step, takes 10-15min aprox (using a SSD).
       
      Note.I had some unexpected reboot in this step. Only re-trying if you have it also.
       
      -To boot again after installation, keep booting from USB , ant then choose internal HD as clover boot screen.
       
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
       
      PART III:
       
      FIRST BOOT
       
      11. Optional updates.
      Finally, we are on High Sierra's Dektop. The Mac os Version is 17G65. In the date of this guide (oct/2018) is the last version. (there is an optional update only for real macbook laptops). For future security updates, this is the moment to update. Set up the internet options and update the system, but remember check if the Lilu and whatevergreen kexts are compatible or if you need use a new version, or you will geta KP or a black screen on boot. Update using the update app, reboot, and wait for the update installation.
       
      12- Install Clover.
      On first reboot, install clover again on HDD, repeating same process and same options than with the USB installer, but keep in mind you have to add some options on clover’s screen install:
       


       

           -Install RC scripts on target volume
           -Optional RC scripts
           -Install Clover Preference Panel.

      …and install clovermanager.app. This is optional but it’s the best way to manage the themes and find a good theme. I provide of one nice High Sierra Theme and the Bootcamp theme. Of course, left this for later. 
       
      Install clover and add same files used on the USB: config.plist , hfsplus driver and kexts. Reboot. You can now extract the USB installer and reboot from the internal HDD.
      After boot, go to clover preference panel and set it to auto mount EFI partition. It will be useful along this process. Disable this when you finish and you get stable your system.
