AudioGod's Aorus Z390 Master Patched DSDT EFI for Catalina Mini Guide and Discussion

1,176 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After @psycato his questions not so long ago I noticed something odd. After installing iStat menus I noticed that the RX 580's memory doesn't idle in my system. It keeps running at 2 Ghz, having connect two 1920*1080 screens @ 60Hz. One connected via HDMI & one via DP.   The problem was not only hackintosh related but in Windows I was able to resolve the issue, the clock idles back to around 300Mhz and draws significantly less power. In Windows the issue was caused by a different refresh rate on the screens. One was 59 and one 60Hz.

 

Now back to hackintosh. I've been searching on the net for several hours but couldn't find a solution yet but it seems I'm not the only one having this issue. The clock remains at 2Ghz when the 2 monitors are connected via DP & HDMI.  Changing the DP cable with an HDMI one wasn't any better either.   Then I disconnected the second monitor / tv & rebooting blew life in it, now it fluctuates between 300 & 1000Mhz.

 

Does anyone know how to resolve this?  The TV & monitor we're using are both 1920*1080 60Hz capable.

It doesn't cause issues while using the system but it draws 40w more on idle.  If possible I would like to get rid of the exces.

Thx in advance.

Hei guys! I have weird issue and that happened after I updated to latest OS 10.15.3:

first in middle sleep computer can automatically start and that crash to Default Bios settings and my other windows boots up.

Also just noticed if I boot with your BIOS settings I can't boot OS - it stacks at OS logo and thats it!

If I do BIOS LOAD to DEFAULT I can start OS without problems.

 

Any idea?


What bios revision and EFI are you using?

Bios 11c and not sure what do you mean by EFI, but I'm using what ever your latest EFI Clover setup.

Yep that’s exactly what I meant and thanks, I’m not totally sure what’s going on there, have you checked to see what your log is saying straight after it happens?

 

Try updating to the latest OcQuirks R13 and Virtual SMC and see if it cures it.

Also there’s a driver called MemoryAllocation.EFI that’s in your UEFI folder that you should remove from the EFI but when you do you will find the system won’t want to boot up anymore until you remove the motherboard power and battery for a few mins to totally clear it out and just load back your bios profile and carry on as normal.

 

im about to put a notice up on my threads about the above file as it turns out it’s not safe to use and could cause harm to the system in the same way as free2000.EFI does. (No systems have been harmed to my knowledge by it but it’s better to be safe then sorry)

So, after searching for a solution on the internet I found out that this problem is related to AMD setting the clock in a higher range when multiple monitors are connected.

 

I don't really need a dual monitor setup in macOS but in Windows it's necessary for the misses. 

Instead of disconnecting the cable everytime, would it be possible to disable a particular HDMI port in macOS?

NEW Clover Major EFI, 4th February 2020

(Use With Bios Revision F11c)

 

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE

PLEASE NOTE IT HAS BEEN DISCOVERED THAT THE DRIVER MemoryAllocation.EFI IS MADE FROM THE SAME CODE AS THE FREE2000.EFI DRIVER AND IS POTENTIALLY HARMFUL TO YOUR SYSTEM SO I HAVE DECIDED TO DROP THE DRIVER FROM MY EFIs.

 

You will need to preform a full bios reset by removing all power to the system and then removing the motherboards internal battery for a few minutes then put it all back and load back in your bios profile and continue as normal.

 

If you find your unable to boot up with the new EFI and the IGPU enabled then you can try dropping the IGPU memory from 64mb to 32mb or if that doesn't work you can disable the IGPU and change the boot argument from shikigva=80 to shikigva=144

 

The EFI and DSDT has now been updated to the my latest version.

Changes made include,

New DSDT's For bios revision F11c ONLY

OcQuirks Revision 13

AppleALC-1.4.6

VirtualSMC 1.11

Clover Updated too Revision 5103

Plus other minor tweaks to the clover config

 

Clover EFI Update - 04/02/2020 - Use with Bios revision F11c Only or Replace with the older F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios

AG Clover Z390 Master Navi Vega EFI.zip - Vega, Navi (5700, 5700XT), Radeon VII DSDT EFI

AG Clover Z390 Master Polaris EFI.zip - RX5XX Polaris DSDT EFI

 

 

Alternative EFI - OpenCore, No DSDT and Done the way OpenCore intended it 4th February 2020

We have now created a OpenCore EFI done the way the OpenCore Devs intended it to be made, There is no DSDT in use so you can use this EFI on any supported GPU and the SSDTs have been made so they will not be used in any other Operating System apart from MacOS.

AG OC DSDT Free Z390 Master EFI.zip - OC Version 0.5.5 DSDT Free, SMBios19,1 (04/02/20)



 

Alternative EFI 2 - N-D-K Fork of OpenCore 4th February 2020 Use with Bios revision F11c Only or Replace with the older F10 DSDT if you don't want to update the bios.

N-D-K OC 055 Navi Vega EFI.zip - Vega 56/64 Navi (5700/5700XT) & Radeon VII DSDT Bios F11c

N-D-K OC 055 Polaris EFI.zip - RX Polaris Series DSDT Bios F11c

 

 

Support on this thread for these EFIs won't be great but @texem and myself will help out where we can.

PLEASE NOTE - All bios settings and guide notes are the same for these EFI's and the SMBios is now set to 19,1

 

For OpenCore and the N-D-K Version Using PlistEdit Pro add your details by modifying the following

PLEASE NOTE - These EFIs are setup to be used with your msr Unlocked so make sure you use the F11c Unlocked Profile but if for any reason you can not unlock MSR then just modify following in the OpenCore config.plist :

CFG Unlock (MSR) F11c BIOS Profile - The Easy Way 

I have made this bios profile for you all to use that will unlock CFG on your motherboard making it play alot more friendly with the NVRam.

It also has all the bios settings listed on this guide pre done and saved onto the profile.



F11c MSR Unlocked Profile.zip - Use with Bios Revision F11c ONLY

 

1 - Download the profile and save it to a USB Key

2 - Go into the bios,

3 - Load the profile, 

4 - Save and exit

5 - Go straight back into the bios and save your bios to a new profile and name it Default CFG Unlocked or something like that.

6 - Boot back into Catalina go into your clover config and under Kernal and Kext Patches Uncheck KernalPM 

7 - Save the changes and then restart and your done, your motherboard will now be CFG (MSR) Unlocked

 

    PLEASE NOTE - If you reset the bios or load bios defaults it will clear the Unlock making CFG Locked again.

Yes sure no problem give me 30mins as I’m just eating my dinner bud :thumbsup_anim:

 

side note - if you disable igpu and change shiki too 144 in the boot arguments it’s the same thing but your still running under the correct smbios 19,1

 

if you do that instead then let me know how it goes for you?

Would that be an option in my case too?  Or would there be some downsides? I want to use a second monitor / tv in windows but not in macOS.

If I could disable the iGPU in macOS in can let the TV cable sit in the iGPU socket and still use it in Windows.

you would have to disable the igpu in the bios to use smbios 1,1 or 19,1 with igpu disabled. there's no way around that one I'm afraid.

@decat a rx580 works better with the igpu enabled using 19,1.

Any solution without cmos battery remove? 

20200204_174430.jpg


bios reset button on the io plate but it might not be enough. Most times it is though.

 

if that fails and you don’t want to pull your loop apart then the only other thing you can do is reflash your bios with the latest firmware.

Hi

 

Follow what @AudioGod says. It's a good solution.

 

One stupid question: I've a MSI Radeon RX580. No IGPU needed, this card supports 4 HDMI ports, so I could use one for monitor and for TV if I want it. Display TV can be disable in macOS.

While reading your reply I realised the same question was already asked by me some time ago. :wacko::lol:

While searching on the net for a solution I found information about the app SwitchResX, tried it and could indeed disable the TV but even after a reboot the system could somehow see it. The memory clock of the RX kept turning @ 2Ghz. TV is disconnected at the moment and will keep it that way while looking for other possibilities to let the misses watch her series while I use the computer.

No, since I am on the CFG  Unlock (MSR) F11c BIOS Profile (with disabled iGPU) I thought I can skip the BIOS reset step?

Try doing a soft reset instead, remove all power and then press the bios reset button on the io shield and try it that way but if that doesn’t work then pull the battery.

 

needs to be done to fully reset the bios memory.

After the reset I should install the CFG Unlock (MSR) F11c BIOS Profile again? When should I upload the new EFI? After the reset?

      This guide is a work in progress and will be updated as I refine the installation.
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks (Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m, Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m, Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600, Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580) are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.
       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec SMBIOS MacModel MacMini 8,1 Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi (currently disabled in BIOS).  I may replace this with Brcm, but am using only Ethernet (IntelMausi) for now.  
      Installation Steps: To be provided
      See attached EFI and /L/E kexts in EliteDesk.zip archive See installation methodology here See references here  
      What is not working
      Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (intentional since I have not yet replaced my Intel card).  
      What is not tested
      USB c 3.1 port Microphone port  
      What is working
      Everything not mentioned above Sleep / Wake Multiple displays with IGPU graphics acceleration, hot pluggable display ports and DP->DVI adapters USB 3.1 ports Audio (internal speaker and headphone jack) Ethernet Auto-sensing headphone jack automatically switches to internal speaker when headphones removed  
      Known Issues and their solutions
      (Reported this as a possible Clover issue - no solution yet) Clover boot loader may default to Recovery volume after a normal shutdown.  Work-around is to select your normal macOS volume.  This may only happen when Clover is configured to boot LastBootedVolume and may be "fixable" by explicitly setting a boot volume (haven't tested this). (Watching this - not sure it's a problem) At least one display blanks (sleeps) when plugging / unplugging USB device (observed in front USB 3.1 ports).  Display wakes immediately on keyboard and mouse activity, so this is a minor issue but may be indicative of another issue. (No solution yet - work-around is to use Firefox) Safari has problems loading insanelymac web pages after sleep / wake.  Work-around: use Firefox or reboot.  I have seen reports in forums where Safari issues are experienced after sleep / wake on a real Mac.  Not sure if the problems are related.  I suspect that it might be related to streaming video on InsanelyMac pages (since I haven't observed the issue on "static" pages).
      Also observed video problem in AppStore after sleep/wake.  Console: VideoDecodersUnavailable  (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Display does not fully wake after resuming from sleep (needs an extra mouse or keyboard stimulus to fully wake).  Solution is to change boot arg darkwake=0 to darkwake=2.  Other values of darkwake may work as well, but this is the first I tried and it worked. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) -disablegfxfirmware boot arg is not required with WEG.  I inadvertently left this boot arg after I encountered an endless gfx firmware update boot loop while working on my FB patching.  This boot arg is no longer necessary after completing FB patching with WEG. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive): Sometimes, CMOS time is lost on shutdown or restart.  Solution is to enable Clover's Apple RTC fix in config.plist. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) headphone jack doesn't work.  Solution is to change HDEF layout-id to 28. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) System freezes on wake from sleep because of a kernel panic related to hda-gfx (my system does not have HDMI and my DP->DVI adapters do not drive monitor speakers).  Solution is to add No-hda-gfx property to HDEF as described here.  This property is recognized as a Lilu flag and prevents loading hda-gfx. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Device (PMCR) is not defined.  Solution is a SSDT that "injects" the missing device. (Solved and included in the attached archive) eficheck is loaded (not sure why this is bad, but may be a privacy issue - see here). Solution is to add updated EFICheckDisabler kext that include Q370 chipset.  See here.
