wait wait, too fast... do you mean that you could install High sierra ?  :huh::huh:   WTF!!  Great news :)

 

I said that the ssdt is only a v1. For PM it needs another patch. But I didn't expect that you be able to go so far. Please, post what you did to have your current PM .

Try this. Replace your current SSDT-1.

 

About PM, I assume that you followed all steps of my guide. 

 

First , check that you don't have KP :whistle:

Second , check your PM. Just repeat the steps with AppleintelInfo and check the output.

 

If you don't have PM, maybe you have to repeat the of SSDT creation with ssdtprgen. I think that you did it , but  pay special attention with the tip of drag ssdt-1 and epic.aml to desktop, renaming (this new and patched) ssdt-1 to dsdt.aml and add the argument  -mode custom to ssdtprgen script.

Got some good news Guys :)

 

PM now fully working here with a Sandy Bridge Dual setup (2xE5 2670 v1).

Geekbench 3 score (32-bit) is around 35000 and Cpu speed step is working from 1.2 up to 3.3 GHz.

 

What did the trick was

 

./ssdtPRGen.sh -cpus 2 -p 'E5-2670' -x 1 -target 0 -turbo 3300 -c 3 -mode custom

 

Whatever else i've tried didn't work (I tried a lot :hysterical:).

perfect, you only forget copy the ssdt-1 v2 file to your efi folder, in /acpi/patched/  replacing the current ssd-1 (v1).  This ssdt-1 is not only to generate the ssdt with pike script. For you, is mandatory keep it in the EFI folder. First version allowed boot (and install) in High Sierra. This version , if I'm not wrong, should allow you get a right PM. When you report the result, I'll extend the guide with a more elaborated explanation.

Glad to heard that!!! :yes: Did you read my answer? I've seen your new ssdt and now it's right. I think that trick was to generate  pike's ssdt loading the new ssdt-1. The ssdt that you were trying was obsolete.

As I know, "-xcpm" bootarg is obsolete and doesn't work in 10.13. I saw information about it on reddit

 

Yes you are right. ^_^ nvd_drv_1 boot flag is deprecated also from Sierra, and I'm still using it. It's silly, I know. It's like kinda a personal superstition. You can ignore them if you want ... :P

Amadeussex, I've take a look to your config.plist. Some patches have payed my attention. "make disable \_SB.SCK0 _STA to XSTA" . I think that you saw this thread . If I'm not wrong, we are lucky with our bios , because the legacy option of our bios, load the acpi cpu tables exactly in the way that this patch does. I mean, those patches are useless for us.

 

Also, those patch are for DSDT. People from that thread have the cpu tables in their dsdt. Our dsdt don't have it. Well , not if we don't copy manually the code to the dsdt. And your dsdt doesn't have it. So basically your are not patching nothing. 

 

But , I'm not sure 100%. I would like to confirm it . Could you tell me how are you using these patches and if they work or not?

Hi Bilbo !

 

If You look closer they are disabled - As i stated above I tried a lot of things to get to the point to have fully working PM.

They are completely useless.

 

Piker's script had some weird behaviour (sometimes ... maybe depending on the used flags).

 

Let me elaborate further:

 

The first time i got PM partially working was with the wrong (/old) Scope SSDT.

Every other attempt (with the correctly generated SSDT/new Scope) was a failure and would either cause a kernel panic, or cause the Cpu to run constantly at 3.0 GHz (mind You that the script's output was always without errors and all states were correctly listed in the SSDT). 

 

What did the trick was finally to use the Syntax stated above ...

 

It's fun though even if it drives You crazy some times :)

 

Thanks again for Your hard work man :)

Sure my friend - Im cloning the High Sierra Installation to an SSD right now.

If i remember correctly it was a score around 1900-2000 but i'll rerun it and post a screenshot.

 

Geekbench 3 32 bit was 35000 (ish) and Geekbench 4 64 was around 28000

Well, it seems , it's all right ... :) . Don´t forget disable AppleIntelInfo.kext  typing "sudo kextunload AppleIntelinfo.kext" after your tests. I assume that you can see differents freqs in your regular use... from 12 to 33 with some higher peaks... right? You can do more extensive test with geekbench (check my folder) to see more detailed graphs. Btw, HWSensors always shows info in single-cpu mode. But you have 2 cpus working, of course.

 

That's a great news for the owners of the 26x7 users. This has been always the main issue reported for the users of z820. I'll add the info to the guide (and the right credits).

yes i watched peaks

my p-states 22~33     (E5 2667 v2 : 12 ~40)

not found C-states....

In Cinebench R15 I have ~1980 on my Z820. But Geekbench 3 (32 bit) shows only ~33800. 

Have tried with yours SSDT file on my Z820, results are the same.

I think my low Geekbench result related to NUMA. My DDR3 modules are mixed 1333MHz / 1600MHz with different timings.

They're close enough my friend, and Yes the mixed Ram may be the culprit but no one gives a f... about benchmarks :)

32000 vs 35000 is not too much in geekbench 3. And yes,  It could be because of memory modules, indeed.  Your whole ram will work so fast like the slower module. 1333 vs 1600 can give you the difference, but , anyway, it´s a slight difference.

Hi. I would like complete the info, and the files patched included in the guide. Does anyone have 3.92 bios? I would like collect original dsdt and ssdt files of this bios versions. If anyone could send them to me, I'd appreciate. (with F4-clover - tip) Thanks.

Sorry, recently my Z820 was downgraded to 3.91. Reason - v3.92 have microcode update related Meltdown/Spectre vulnerabilities.

Quote

• Updates Intel processor microcode to 0x42C for Ivy Bridge-EP processors, 0x713 for Sandy Bridge-EP C2/M1 processors and 0x61C for Sandy Bridge-EP C1/M0 processors.
• Includes enhancement to address CVE-2017-5715. 
• Improves security of UEFI code and variables.
• HP strongly recommends promptly transitioning to this updated BIOS version.

 

Beside this, v3.92 isn't latest version for Z820. There is v3.94 already

Quote

Version:3.94 Rev.A

The following fixes have been made in BIOS version 03.94:
-Fixes an issue where system could fail to boot after upgrading to Windows 10, version 1803. 
The following enhancements have been made in BIOS version 03.94:
-Updates Intel processor microcode to 0x42D for Ivy Bridge-EP processors, 0x714 for Sandy Bridge-EP C2/M1 processors and 0x61d for Sandy Bridge-EP C1/M0 processors.
-Includes enhancement to mitigate CVE-2018-3639 and CVE-2018-3640. 

So I think users must use v3.91 like I, or latest version, but not 3.92. By the way, bilbo, why you use v3.90?

 

On Sunday I can temporary upgrade to v3.92 and do what you want. Please PM me if it will be still actual.

got v3.92 and v3.94 dumps

      Ciao ragazzi, sono incappato in un problema che di sicuro sono io stupido.
      Premetto che: Chiavetta 32giga, formattata Journaled e GUID, Clover installato.
      In primis la cartella che crea Clover dei Driver non si chiama drivers64EFI e ne crea una drivers e basta, de facto non legge i driver e di conseguenza la chiavetta per fare l'installazione.
      Pazienza, ho scaricato i driver altrove e li ho buttati in una cartella drivers64EFI, ergo chiavetta rilevata dentro clover.
      Arrivo all'utility disco, inizializzo l'SSD(samsung 860pro) in APFS e facendo partire l'installer non mi fa cliccare l'SSD APPENA formattato dicendomi che sto provando ad installare un MacOS più VECCHIO di quello attualmente installato o.0????????
      Ok, CMD Q e torno all'utility, formatto in Journaled ma nulla di fatto, mi ridice la stessa frase. Faccio hackintosh da snow leopard ma una roba del genere mai vista.
      La chiavetta l'ho creata col classico create installer media da una virtual machine con Mojave. E il driver APFS l'ho cercato apposta per 10.13 e i driver scaricati li ho trovati sul web per una MOBO identica alla mia ma Mojave (Aorus Ultra Z390).
      Non ne vengo a capo. Devo forse formattare la chiavetta in MBR?
      GRAZIE A TUTTI e soz per la nabbaggine

      Hi All,
      Noob here asking Help or Hints,
      trying to build my first Hackintosh from HP Z820. Almost done...
       
      Read Z820 Sierra & High Sierra Z820 installation guides in this forum - following them I managed to create a Booting Mojave install USB and successful
      installation of Mojave 10.14.6 in to SSD. Via Clover Boot view I can choose Mojave SSD and it boots Ok, logging in Ok.
       
      Everything "looks" to work Ok.
      -CPU recognised Ok.
      -SSD & HDU Ok.
      -GPU Radeon RX580, 2 x DP in use.
      -Dual displays Ok (Full HD, no internal speakers)
      -Wired LAN working (2 Wired LAN RJ-45 connectors, using the one without text label "AMT" (?))
      -No Wifi (no dongle)
      -Audio working: line out & headphones, airplay (ALC262, injected 28) Ok.
      -Bluetooth dongle (Ebay) in USB2.0 port Ok (paired BT Speaker, Keyboard and Mouse).
      -Front: 1 x USB2.0, 2 x USB3.0 (all as USB2.0 mode, I think).
      -Back: 4 x USB2.0, 2 x USB3.0 (all as USB2.0 mode, I think).
      -Back: Firewire OK/NOK ? Don't own any fw device at the moment, how to test, not important now.
       
      Not yet signed to any Apple service, iCloud, etc. Not yet installed any other software except Clover 5098 and Hackintools 2.8.6
       
      MY PROBLEM:
      System Preferences is showing Update, Mojave 2019-001 (1.55GB). Safari was updated Ok with another smaller update.
      I try to install the Mojave Update. It downloads it Ok, warns about needed Restart and after accept it starts to install it.
      Apple logo visible, progress bar visible, text "Installing Software Update" visible. Progress bar shows a minor progress - stays almost in the beginning...
      and Wham! - Rebooting
       
      Logging in Ok, System Update window pops open and offers the same update again...
       
      Have read plenty of articles from different Forums (sorry, I'm desperate, Noob) and I have a feeling that it relates to my Z820 USB's (maybe??).
      HP Z820 uses "Texas Instruments USB3.0 xHCI Host Controller" - NOT Intel like Apple. That's why All my USB are in "usb2.0 mode" (??).
       
      I installed the system with SSD/HDU cables in factory settings (in SAS/SATA connectors. AstekFusion2Adapter & AstekFusion2Family kexts), worked fine.
      I changed the SSD/HDU cables to different connectors (ACHI 0 / 1) like in Z820 High Sierra guide later and Booted Ok. Tried Update, FAIL.
       
      Have no idea what's wrong or what's causing this - like I said, I'm a Noob and trying to build my first Hackintosh...
       
      Can anyone Help Noob ?

      Ho notato nei giorni scorsi che mi sparivano alcune icone dal dock ma adesso non si accende proprio più. Mi esce la schermata che vi posto in allegato.
      Al pc stacco la corrente quando non ci sono in casa per evitare temporali improvvisi (quindi capitano anche giorni senza corrente).
      L'hackintosh aveva un problema di spegnimento: non si spegneva ma arrivava alla schermata finale e quando usciva CPU halted lo spegnevo manualmente.
      Ho due hard disk uno con Windows 10 e l'altro con high sierra.
      Si può ripristinare? Ho dei progetti di lavoro sopra

      Salve a tutti
      Fin' ora non mi sono informato molto su come sistemare il boot , prima schermata di avvio.
      In pratica ogni volta devo spostare con freccetta e selezionare mio Hard disk .
      Allego foto fatte da cell. della schermata boot .
      Bisognerebbe cancellare le entries ?
      E nel caso in cui vorrei modificare la grafica clover ?
      Grazie in anticipo per le delucidazioni.
