[SOLVED] FileVault take much time to ask for password

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Since the Catalina beta 9, FileVault takes about 3 minutes to request the password.

 

I am currently in a final version 19A602 and the problem continues.

 

If anyone can take a look, I have attached "gen_debug" before and after disabling FileVault.

I noticed that if I boot in verbose, the login screen takes the same time, but at left o screen a lot of lines pop up:

ERROR: LWSmcUINT8ForKey smcProtocol-> SmcReadValue failed for key '...

Important: In attachments the Kexts are in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/ but the behavior in /Library/Extensions is the same.

 

Important 2: Tried without UsbKbDxe.efi, UsbMouseDxe.efi, Ps2MouseDxe.efi and same issue.

 

My laptop is from this guide that I wrote: 

 

gen_debug.zip

 

 

[EDIT]

 

Solved with https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/cre5da/filevault_howto

 

Basically removes:

 

AppleImageCodec.efi

AppleImageLoader.efi

AppleKeyAggregator.efi

AppleUITheme.efi

AptioInputFix.efi

Ps2MouseDxe.efi

FirmwareVolume.efi

SMCHelper.efi

 

And, add:

 

AppleGenericInput.efi

AppleUiSupport.efi

VirtualSmc.efi

 

Of course, replace FakeSMC kexts with VirtualSMC kexts.

 

Now, just 5 seconds to ask password.

Man, you are a lifesaver! I installed Catalina multiple times because it looked like it froze when I enabled Filevault. Once I waited long enough for the login screen to appear (by sheer accident I have to admit), it occured to me that FV actually was working all the time and there might be a way to accelerate the boot process. A search turned up your post and it was all smooth sailing from there. So, thank you very much!

      Hi Guys,
       
      I was finally able to get my Catalina installer to boot using by changing EC0 to EC 4543305f 45435f5f. Huge headache with this as it took me a good couple of days to fix the error. 
       
      The good news is I can make it to the installer but now the problem is now the Catalina installer gets stuck at 2 minutes with the error code showing disk25s1 is not convertible to APFS.
       
      My Troubleshooting Steps:
       
      - Tried another NVMe drive, with same results
      - Checked Samsung Magician for updates, no luck
      - Formatted the drives in Ubuntu, same exact installer error.
       
      For some reason the disks always show as "Writable: NO" 
       
      Hardware:
      - Asus Z390-E 
      - Intel i7 9700K
      - Samsung 970 Pro
      - 16GB Crucial 
      - Intel UHD Graphics
       
      Is there something wrong with my kexts or config? 
       
      Thank You!

      A few days ago I faced a problem - installed ocquirks and it somehow broke my prelinked kernel. System won't boot then, and I spent more than a day restoring from the netatalk  backup to copy working prelinked kernel directory from the backup to the s/l
      So, my question is - how to relink prelinked kernel without that? I found boot args -f UseKernelCache=No but it didn't work. I was able to boot to the recovery, if that can help.

      I decided to extract the immutablekernel for Catalina 10.15.3.
      I had to add a FAT header but it extracts just fine.
      Thanks to this we have the kernel and kexts for the immutablekernel.
      The info dictionary and lists are also included.
      Needs further study if it contains extras compared to the prelinkedkernel.
      Maybe we can find out what those .im4m files (for example immutablekernel.x589iclydev.im4m) are thanks to this.
       
      Enjoy
