Did you properly adopt and add TSCAdjustReset.kext

 

I have double E5-2683 v3 . 28 core and 56 thread  , IOCPUNumber has  already set to 55.

does anyone solved XCPM implementation on an 5820k?

Ive followed most closly the E.1) steps described.

 

Bios settings with latest microcode patch for my Asrock X99m Extreme4,

Bios settings

  • Advanced\CPU Configuration\CPU Power Management Configuration\
  • Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST): disabled)
  • Turbo mode: Enabled
  • CPU C-State: Enabled
  • Enhanced C1 State: Enabled
  • CPU C3 Report: Enabled
  • CPU C6 Report: Enabled
  • Package C State Limit: C6(non Retention) state

a) there is no locked msr register on my asrock x99m extreme4, so no kernelpm and no xcpm core scope msrs pike r patch,

b) added the fakecpu id 0x0306F2

c) active

d) active

e) active

f) also active PluginType in SSDT Patch

 

update 3

now with speedstep, EIST Performance FIX for Broadwell-E and Haswell-E is different:

Still I dont think im done with XCPM Performance

Geekbench 4 Results with 5820k at 4GHz low, and intel power gadget cpu frequency curve is low:

1.) You have SMT_scope_msrs1 enabled twice. KGP-D1.2_e_xcpm_SMT-scope_msr1 is certainly not the patch of my 10.14 EFI-Folder and is wrong!

 

2.) Also KGP_d1.2_10.13_xcpm_pkg_scope and KGP_d1.2_10.13_xcpm_pkg_scope are not from my 10.14 EFi-Folder and are wrong! The correct patch is xcpm_pkg-scope_msrs, which you disabled!  

 

3.) Up to my knowledge there is just one common performance patch valid for both Broadwell-E and Haswell-E. 

 

The correct performance patch for 10.14.2 is:

 

Find: C1E3084863D389D048C1EA20B9990100000F3048FF05C37276004883C4085B5DC30F1F4000

4.) You do not need the cupid_set_info kernel patch. 

 

Hope this helps.

Hi KGP,

thanks for your feedback. Ive gone through your recommendations ones more and disabled my kerneltopatch entries which I found for haswell-E in various topics (insanelymac.com, most of them from nmano): 

 

with your recommended patches i dont get xcpm speedsteping on 10.14.1, this is the bootstraß patch, the performance patch and smt scope 1/2 patches you recommend in your tutorial.

my geekbench score is at the level I would say is max. for 4gh 5820k with slow 32gb ddr4 2133 mhz ram, but the cpu does not idle anymore, all the time full 4ghz frequency.

Because you have to change the bootstrap patch to Haswell-E! The one implemented in my EFI-Folder distrubution is for Broadwell-E! I told you that the correct bootstrap patch for Haswell-E  and further guidelines for the 5820K you can find in the README.md of my X99 EFI-Folder repository!

Hi KGP 

ok next round after update to 10.14.2 with fakecpuid 0x0306F2

 

1) cpuid_set_info disabled

2) xcpm_bootstrap haswell-e enabled (from your readme.md on x99 repository

3) xcpm_performance_patch for 10.14.2 as posted above enabled

4) smt_scope_msrs 1/2 enabled

5) xcpm_pkg_scope_msrs enabled

 

no with xcpm mode 1 but just base frequency. the cpu does push to higher frequencies after boot:

yes right at startup the cpu goes to 4ghz and than idles back as all the chrome windows etc. are loaded.

sorry what is an IPG snapshot?

 

cinebench does not wake the cpu up:

also switched to a sapphire pulse rx580 8GB, but no displayport out, only hdmi 30hz 4k (i know i need to follow your instructions on that).

CPU is unkown:

Plugintype checked in config.plist? TSCAdjustReset.kext in EFI-Folder? 

 

Revise BIOS settings and play enabling, disabling the xcpm patches. 

 

You do have different board but also CPU. I cannot help you further. However, there are several people successfully running the 5820K based on my guidelines. 

 

Good luck,

Yes Plugintype is checked (activated), TSCAdjustReset.kext is patched to 11 in accordance to your guide (12-1).  I always had problems with the X99M under el capitan, maybe its time to switch.

 

I've bought an used X99-A II, I will start from scratch when it arrives.

Hi KGP,i have same problem like Multisaft

 

i use your guide since 10.12.

my hardware

2696v3(haswell ep)

asrock x99 taichi

xcpm is loaded,pstate ok(12-38).bios patched.

 

update from 10.13.2 to 10.14.2

with your guide.

all cpu core will lock to 1.2Ghz after pc run some hours.

 

if i disable xcpm bootstrap patch,xcpm won't load,all core lock to 2.8Ghz.

 

if i use xcpm performance patch and xcpm msr patch in this post

 

the cpu freq will vary from 1.2 to 2.8,even i force run some heaveload program(cb r15),there may some core still keep 1.2-2.0.this make cb r15 score vary from 1000-2000(normal is 1900-2100) points in multi test.

make me feel like i'm using a 18 cores low freq notebook...

 

i think haswell-ep need another eist performance patch or xcpm msr patch.but these info is too less.

does anyone else with haswell-ep has cpu freq issue?

 

i'm not use this pc now,if u have time,need some info to help,i'll post info late.

thanks your reply.i read your guide and git readme carefuly.

 

I'm sure i set the right xcpm_bootstrap,FakeCPUID to haswell ep version(2696v3),disable or not the set_cpu_info patch not influence these.

and TSCAdjustRest,bios microcode patch,etc... set to right.

 

in  nmano's post,

he use 

C1E3084863D389D048C1EA20B9990100000F3048FF05238376004883C4085B5DC30F1F4000

the _xcpm_pkg_scope_msrs _xcpm_SMT_scope_msrs 1 & 2 patch is different.

 

your patch will cause my cpu lock to 1.2Ghz after some hours.

his patch will cause my cpu freq vary from 1.2-2(half cores),2-2.8(half cores),random,which cause cinebench r15 score vary from 1000-2000.(normal 1900-2100).IGP package freq vary from 1.x to 2.x(below 2.5 even high load...)

 

in your guide post in another forum,i noticed someone(id:torock) use xeon 2660v3 also has same problem(xcpm ok,but freq not stable).

 

I guess some inaccurate kernel to patch entities cause these.and there's no much info about these thing.

now my pc like a 18 cores notebook with low freq,not fluence.the performance even worst than my i7 8700(mojave).

I consider change cpu to xeon 1680v3|v4.i use recc memory.i need xeon.

 

thanks your nice guide again.

Well my patches are exactly those of @PMheart. The SMT and pkg_scope patches are different between 10.13 and 10.14. The performance patch nearly changes for each macOS version. Are you sure you are using the correct patches for your macOS version? Between Broadwell and Haswell there is just a difference in the cpu_set_info and bootstrap patch. While both are obsolete for Broadwell-E, some Haswell CPU s still need the bootstrap patch. Else your CPU behavior will also strongly depend on your BIOS settings. If you have locked MSR, you also need to enable the core scope patch.

 

I guess you already considered all these advices. Unfortunately, I am not able to provide further help in this case. 

 

With my i7-6950X everything works flawless with the patches implemented in my respective EFI-Folders. I can absolutely exclude that some of the patches do not meet the requirements.  

 

Good luck,

 

KGP

thanks for your reply.

 

i use the right version performance patch for 10.14.2.follow your guide carefully.

asrock x99 taichi,has no msr lock.so i don't need core scope patch and clover kernelpm config.

you confirm your kernel patch i'll try your guide sometime(may next version)

 

i search the web find some guys(three-five use xeon v3) have similar performance problem(xcpm loaded,cpu freq not stable,lower bench score).later if u known someone use xeon 26xx v3 suceess without performance problem.could you post it in your guide.then i know it's some fault in my config.i'll check my setup even consider a clean install.

 

thanks for your help.

Well on GB-4 on Mojave I got a pretty preatty good result I think, in comparison the one I got in Sierra withe the same system setup. I never test this this system with High Sierra cause I was out of the hobbit for a while, but this are the results for Mojave.

Hi Guys,

 

short feedback,

I've updated to the X99-A II and it looks like XCPM with 5820k cpu work flawless. sadly the sapphire pulse rx580 does not work the way I expected it. Just HDMI does work and my Philipps 40" does not support 4k at 60Hz over HDMI (old version), and all the Displayport 1.2 solutions do not work as well (yes I used the RX580.aml). So Sleep/wake issues are also present (black screen problem). I decided to invest even further as I need this workstation for both (WIN as well as Mac) and ordered a PowerColor Radeon RX Vega 56 Red Dragon. I hope that this will fix my Displayport as well as sleep/wake issues. 

 

I just want to thank KGP for his support and all the other guys for such incredible easy to install hackintoshes. I'm around in this community for a long time (not as active as some others) and did my first x86 on an Asus P6T-SE with Core i7-920 and holy this was a messup to get OS X running. What a difference it is today when you just stick to hardware used from our community!

ok

 

now with powercolor vega56 red dragon

 

and without displayport 1.2 connection to my 40", so no 4k@60hz. and not even 4k@30hz.

with hdmi, 4k@30hz is possible for my tries:

 

1. try: just added your vega56 ssdt implementation, this resulted in massive fanspeeds due to your oc and fan control settings, I guess. with or without whatevergreen.kext no displayport connection.

2. try: deleted everythin, your ssdt implementation, now still no displayport connection, idle fan control works with 0rpm in idle but under load normal vega problems with high fan speeds and no reversion back to low fan speeds or zero fan speed.

 

so I googled and found the various informations in tonymacs about VGTab control.

there, I understood, that I dont have my Vega56 on GFX0, I searched in my config.plist that I used from your folder KGP and found that the change GFX0 to IGPU was enabled in the dsdt patching section. I disabled it, but still there is no GFX0 found from gfxutil (also from tonymacs support sites).

 

Now I'm lost.

 

Next idea: update lilu and whatevergreen in recommendation from the VGTab guide

I really do not understand at all what you are doing.. Vega56 SSDT has no loadtable. No OC! 

 

Everybody runs Vega56 SSDT + Whatevergreen without any issues including fully functional display ports! 

 

I clearly recommend to use VGTab app for the application of custom vega settings by creating a custom load table to be inplemented within the SSDT! 

 

In my config plist there is nothing enabled in the graphics section and there is certainly no change from GFX0 to IGPU implemented or enabled!

 

Seems that you already  totally messed up my predefined EFI-Folder. I really would recommend to start from scratch in your case. 

 

Good luck

good morning KGP,

 

I really do not understand what I'm doing different to others, too! :-D

But after my last post I did what I written down, updated to the latest Lilu, without any Vega56 SSDT but with Whatevergreen.kext and now I'm on 4k@60Hz and with GFX0. As I had run out of time yesterday, I will follow your SSDT Vega 56 implementation today and will retest yours as well as creating my own (undervolting and Idle fan speeds etc. - just as I like to do it on my own as it interests me). What I read in the VGTab tutorial, there are users reporting issues using the kext created from VGTab in combination with the whatevergreen.kext (failed boot procedures). Is that the reason you implemented the various correct OC and fan-settings for vega in your ssdt implementation?

 

I will give you a screenshot of the config plist I downloaded (with date of download), it is the config I downloaded from your first post in this thread and which I used to clearly had no problem creating a USB installer as well as taking the first steps in the clean Mojave install. I don't think that I totally messed up my EFI-Folder, I just updated in accordance to your guide. I can upload my config.plist if you like to or if you want to recheck if I failed in other steps :-D

 

To be honest I have absolutely no problem with the fact that I run into some minor issues, that helps me to understand what we are doing with our installations. 

 

Regarding the Vega56 SSDT, can you tell me if you undervolted P5-P7 and how I can change your SSDT to 0rpm fanspeed at idle?

 

Benchmarks

Update: when I use your Vega56 SSDT with GFX0, there is no 0rpm fanspeed at idle. Can you give me a hint how to fix this? I see 1.61GHz GPU clocks as well as 900MHz GPU Ram speeds. that is nice, looks like you undervolted?

In addition, I found out that my pkg Power delivery is not monitored in intel power gadget. See attached my config.plist and screenshots.

1836298329_Bildschirmfoto2019-01-11um18_19_31.thumb.png.8064e5208388ad560994e02183b1ee03.png

Luxmark gives me even 1.65GHz at GPU speed, nice.

CONFIG PLIST

config.plist

 

 

here my vega56 SSDT

SSDT-X99-Vega56.aml

undervolted and oced to 1.66ghz with 900mhz ram clock, lowest possible idle rpm (0rpm does not work?)

 

results almost the same as above

      Patch Catalina or Mojave macOS Installer App for Unsupported Machines
       
      Often for economic reasons, Apple prevents the Installer.app for its latest macOS from installing on older machines perfectly capable of running it eg macOS 10.14 Mojave on Unsupported Macs Thread.
       

       
      In Mojave 10.14, @ASentientBot posted a method to patch the distribution file in OSInstall.mpkg to enable the Mojave installer to install on unsupported machines (with or without graphics card metal support). 
       
      In Catalina 10.15beta, the above method no longer works since Apple is checking OSInstall.mpkg for its file signature and the mandatory requirement in Catalina to install to 2 separate apfs volumes necessitates using the original Catalina macOS Base System Installer.  Fortunately, it is still possible to substitute High Sierra’s Apple Signed OSInstall.mpkg inside the Catalina or Mojave InstallESD.dmg by making it R/W.
       
      The procedure below will allow Macs or Hacks able to install High Sierra to also install Catalina or Mojave (eg SMBIOS MacPro5,1, iMac11,3, MacBook Pro7,1 which have been unsupported in macOS 10.14.x and 10.15beta) -credit to @ASentientBot's post.
       
      Prerequisites
      1. Mac or Hack capable of and running High Sierra 10.13.x
      2. An original, untouched copy of OSInstall.mpkg from High Serra InstallESD.dmg - attached OSInstall_10.13.6.mpkg.zip save to your ~/Downloads folder
      3. macOS Installer App eg for Catalina beta or Mojave downloaded to /Applications
      4. Add NVRAM boot arg (or Clover config.plist boot arg on a hack) -no_compat_check to enable system to boot to final completed Mojave or Catalina install.
       
      Procedure
      1. Open Terminal and type the following
       
      open /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg (assuming the Catalina or Mojave Installer App is in /Applications)  
      2. Open Disk Utility, click File|New Image|Image from ‘InstallESD”
      3. Save as read/write image, no encryption in /Applications
      4. Unmount InstallESD in DU by clicking the "eject" icon next to it
       
       
      5. Open the R/W InstallSD.dmg in /Applications and replace Catalina’s/Mojave's OSInstall.mpkg with High Sierra’s version by typing in terminal
       
      open /Applications/InstallESD.dmg cp ~/Downloads/OSInstall_10.13.6.mpkg /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg  
      6. Unmount InstallESD in DU by clicking the "eject" icon next to it
      7. Replace original Catalina/Mojave InstallESD.dmg with our patched one, making a backup of the original.  In terminal, type
       
      sudo mv /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg /Applications/InstallESD_orig.dmg sudo mv /Applications/InstallESD.dmg /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/  
      8.  Test the newly patched installer!…

      I install Mojave by following RehabMan Guide. After install I copy the Intel HD4000 7 series Config.plist from RehabMan. In my system configuration shows 1536MB graphics but I don't get the graphics performance . I have graphics related problems and lags issues. dock don't have transperancy, browsers have black shade and don't see fonts etc. I try many config files but I can't fix the issue still now. When I try some config file it will be fix until restart or shutdown. After that I have still graphics problem. Over a month I try to fix this I didn't get any result still now. Please help me to fix this . I'm first time in Hackintosh and I don't have knowledge about it.

      Please read me:
      Ever since macOS Mojave came out (I mean the first DP) Apple removed the support for Atheros based WiFi Adapters from the IO80211Family.kext, so to fix it we need to add the AirPortAtheros40.kext to the Extensions manually.
      After each clean install the AirPortAtheros40.kext needs to be installed and after clean installing Mojave DPs after few times I decides to create this app to save some time.
       
      How to use it:
      This application will install the missing AirPortAtheros40.kext into /System/Library/Extensions and after the installation is done and once you reboot your computer the Atheros based WiFi adapters will be enabled.
      The installation is the first step of the process and it is fast but the next steps which are repairing the permission on /System/Library/Extensions and rebuilding the system caches might take a while so please wait until you were asked to reboot your computer.
       
      I'm using a TP-Link WDN4800 with an Atheros chipset and it works on other similar hardware.

      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Periphelrals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Periphelrals - USB Configuration - XHCI Hand-off to ENABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - DVMT Pre-Allocated to 128M
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - It will show twice. One with UEFI prefix and another without.
      - Select with UEFI prefix. Ie.: "UEFI: Sandisk Cruzer"
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "HD".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your destination disk EFI parittion, with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

      If the flash drive EFI partition of your destination disk or flash drive is unmounted:
      Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 0 for destination disk and 1 for flash drive.
       
      Then, eject the flash drive.
       
      Last step
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.14/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!

       
      And last but not least

      What works and what does not
       
      - Processor: Intel Core i5-4300M ->  Work. All SpeedStep stages.
      - Video Card: Intel HD4600 ->  Work. QE/CI and Metal.
      - Chipset: Intel QM87 ->  Work.
      - Mini DisplayPort ->  Work. But no audio, yet.
      - VGA ->  Not work. Normal.

      Extras
       
      - FullHD 1920x1080 display upgrade: 
      Replaced with AU Optronics B140HAN01.1 30pin eDP (B140HAN01.2 and B140HAN01.3 also compatible).
      Apparently same screen as Dell Latitude E6440, E7440, Lenovo Ideapad U430 and E129.
       
      - CPU upgrade:
      Replaced the stock Intel Core i5 4300M 2.6Ghz (3.3Ghz turbo) 6M cache with Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4Ghz (3.4Ghz turbo) 6MB.
      I initially had problems with overheating. The processor ran at full load above 90 degrees.
      After using a quality thermal paste I can work between 70 and 80 degrees.
      Acceptable taking into consideration that the new processor has 47TDP versus 37TDP which is recommended.
      I also had no problem consuming the battery while charging. The original 65W source seems to have figured out.
       
      - Touchpad upgrade:
      Replaced the stock with T460 touchpad.
      This is serious: you have to do it! It should be stock. Touchpad with precision and absurd quality!
      Just do it!
       
      - RAM upgrade:
      No mistery here. Just upgade.
       
       
      Todo
       
      - Make DP audio work.
      - Make Card Reader work.
      - Upgrade CPU to i7-4712MQ (Ordered. It's on the way) Done, but received i7-4700MQ (47w TDP, with good paste I have no overheating)
      - Replace touchpad with T460 model (Ordered. It's on the way) Done. Sensitivity and perception of quality much better. I recommend 100%!
      - Sierra Gobi5000 4G LTE modem EM7355 (Ordered. It's on the way. I hope works. ) Done, but not work. Recognize but not connect. I already gave up...
      - Upgrade to 16GB RAM Done
      - Make trackpad appear in System Preferences

      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - ApfsDriverLoader-64
      - UEFI Drivers - AptioMemoryFix-64


       
       
      Make things works

      Will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop.
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
                    If you have modded BIOS with Advanced Menu and enabled 128MB DRAM-prealloc use 128MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
                    If no, then use 32MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
      - Put SSDT-L440.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.3.2.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the HWSensors 3 from here. I used the FakeSMC.kext, ACPIMonitor.kext and IntelCPUMonitor.kext inside of DMG version r196.
      - Download the VoodooPS2Controller.kext from here. I used version 2018-1008.
      - Download the IntelMausiEthernet.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1031.
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.6.
      - Download the VoodooHDA from here. I used the version 2.9.1 and patched the sound volume (attached below).
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.2.9.
      - Download the AppleBacklightFixup.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1013.

      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week.
      In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you.
      I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 2.0.0.
      - Download the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0505.
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.2.
       
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your destination disk EFI parittion, with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

      If the flash drive EFI partition of your destination disk or flash drive is unmounted:
      Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 0 for destination disk and 1 for flash drive.
       
      Then, eject the flash drive.
       
      Last step
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.3
       
      - Updated with success;
      - Everything works perfectly after reboot;
       

       
       
      System update 10.14.4
       
      - Updated Clover to 4910.
      - Updated Lilu.kext to 1.3.5 and WhateverGreen to 1.2.7.
      - After first reboot the update progress stoped with:
      GTrace synchronization point 4 Unsupported CPU Unsupported PCH hmm.. mismatch sizes: 3100 vs 20 It was still possible to start the previous installation, selecting "Macintosh" as opposed to "macOS Install" in Clover.
      So I created a flash drive with Clover 4910 and put only my config.xml, SSDT-L440.aml, the updated Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext. And I decided to test VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.kext.
      With this I was able to install update 10.14.4. After installation I can boot normally, even with FakeSMC.kext that already in /Library/Extensions.
      I do not know what exactly happened, but now works everything like was previously.
       


       
       
      System update 10.14.5
       
      - Updated Clover to 4934.
      - Updated Lilu.kext to 1.3.6 and WhateverGreen to 1.2.9.
      - After first reboot the update progress stoped again (like 10.14.4 update) with:
      GTrace synchronization point 4 Unsupported CPU Unsupported PCH hmm.. mismatch sizes: 3100 vs 20 It was still possible to start the previous installation, selecting "Macintosh" as opposed to "macOS Install" in Clover.
      I decided to rollback to FakeSMC.kext but this time with the version of HWSensors 3. Link above.
      With this I was able to install update 10.14.5. After installation I can boot normally.
