Ciao di nuovo!

 

Questi ultimi giorni, avendo un po' più di tempo libero, ho fatto qualche altra prova.

Innanzitutto ho notato che l'avvio si ferma su "Waiting for DSMOS", e sul web dicono tutti di inserire una versione aggiornata di FakeSMC, mentre invece nella mia efi mi avete fatto mettere VirtualSMC, su cui non trovo guide o altre info: comunque, inserendo FakeSMC l'avvio si ferma persino prima, nella fase iniziale di boot, e quindi ho lasciato perdere.

Per quanto riguarda la kextcache, non vuole saperne di fare nulla, nonostante la partizione venga montata correttamente, nessun comando ad essa relativo riesce ad evitare il solito errore.

Ho provato anche ad avviare con -f (nessuna differenza), -x (ad un certo punto il pc si riavvia durante il boot), e con tutte le altre modalità fornite da clover, ma nulla.

Consigli?

Salve a tutti. Novità? ho lo stesso tuo portatile, ho montato un altro hd ed ho provato, seguendo quest topic. sono riuscito ad installare catalina, ma non funziona audio, vga alla giusta risoluzione, mouse e tastiera. Sei riuscito ad andare avanti e se si, potresti darmi una mano? grazie.

Purtroppo ho dovuto lasciar perdere, anche reinstallando 10 volte il problema è sempre lo stesso e non arrivo mai al primo avvio di macOS (cioè non riesco a raggiungere la schermata di configurazione in nessun modo dopo l'installazione), e quindi non so dirti come andare avanti da dove sei tu.

Invece... tu come diavolo hai fatto ad andare avanti da dove sono io? :P

Magari se riesco ad arrivare a fine setup ti posso anche dare una mano con driver e roba varia :D

ciao, sono riuscito ad installare da una pendrive copiando la cartella efi. ma non riesco più a riavviare dopo qualche cambiamento. Non parte più, ho smontato l'hard disk in attesa di nuove info e di tempo da dedicare a questa cosa che mi intrippa.

Quindi hai semplicemente creato una chiavetta con l'installer di macOS, installato Clover sulla chiavetta e copiato la "mia" EFI al posto di quella originale (tra virgolette "mia", perché se non fosse stato per i santi ragazzi di questo forum manco lì sarei arrivato :P).

Io, invece, dopo aver installato correttamente, semplicemente non riesco ad arrivare al desktop, o almeno alla schermata in cui crei l'utente, accedi ad iCloud, ecc., semplicemente si installa l'OS ma poi non parte, non importa quali o quante boot option usi.

Semplicemente non so come fare ad avviare...

@JamesMaloney sostituzione totale efi, prova

EFI.zip

Ho tentato con questa EFI, ma se avvio l'OS già installato mi si ferma al solito punto del boot (primo screen), mentre se tento di far partire l'installer nella chiavetta ricevo questa schermata subito prima che il pc si riavvii (secondo screen). :cry:

Inizio a pensare che macOS mi odi.

 

P.S. Scusate per la pessima qualità delle foto, ma non riesco a fare di meglio: se potessi recuperare il log da qualche parte forse sarebbe più facile condividerlo (?)

metti l'SSDT disable in EFI clover acpi patched

con l'ultima EFI prova questi 2 config

SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip

config-2.plist.zip

config.plist.zip

PS: altrimenti prova questa EFI di gengik... però siamo ai tempi di high sierra... e magari meglio levare il DSDT.aml

Vado con ordine...

 

1.Ho provato entrambi i config con SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml inserito nella cartella patched, ma il risultato è sempre lo stesso (reposto la foto, ma è quasi identica a quella del post precedente;

2.Ho tentato con l'EFI del link sottostante, sia con che senza DSDT.aml, ed il risultato è sempre lo stesso: seconda immagine qui sotto e poi dopo una trentina di secondi compare un logo con un divieto al centro dello schermo.

questo tuo notebook ha G-synch? 

 

siamo sicuri che la iGPU sia operativa?

 

era abbastanza ovvio che con vecchia EFI catalina non sarebbe andata.. ma qui vi è qualcosa che non torna, visto che pare che ad altri sia andato bene high sierra, o il BIOS non è settato a modo o non saprei.... prova ad installarci high sierra

Il notebook è senza G-sync e la iGPU è funzionante (su Linux Mint uso esclusivamente quella), unica cosa se non sono installati i driver corretti la iGPU "taglia" l'ultima riga di schermo (forse si vede da qualche foto che ho mandato).

 

Per quanto riguarda il BIOS, mi fa impostare praticamente solo VT-d, VT-x e AES-NI, il fast boot, il secure boot e il csm (tutti disattivati), più la SATA mode e c'è solo "AHCI" come possibile scelta.

 

Per quanto riguarda High Sierra, ho provato diverse EFI dal post linkato, ma nessuna mi fa arrivare all'installer, ho persino provato combinazioni diverse di EFI, config.plist, DSDT.aml ed altro ma nulla è riuscito a farmi tornare al maledetto installer (o ad avviarmi l'OS che ho già installato ma che non è mai partito).

 

Mi dò all'ippica? :angel_not:

beh non ti sei ancora impratichito? li puoi lasciare così e caricarli al volo... comunque se arriva uno a clover ci arriva anche l'altro... poi specifica bene quale... fa cosa o si blocca dove

 

PS: in entrambi lascia in patched SSDT disable dGPU

Ho appena riprovato lasciando SSDT disable dGPU, e confermo che config-vesa.plist non carica Clover, rimane in una schermata nera subito dopo la selezione della chiavetta tra le opzioni di boot e non va mai avanti, mentre config-vesa 2.plist riesce a caricare Clover ma si ferma prima dell'installer, riavviando il pc (screen sotto)

ah guarda bel mistero... il vesa 2 è clone del vesa con un paio di modifiche non inerenti alla GUI

 

e francamente non so che carichi.. vedo dei boot-arg nella foto che hai messo con voci non presenti nei config... quindi la domanda è... che diamine carichi???

Le boot-arg che vedi sulla foto si trovano nel config.plist che mi hai dato in precedenza: quando aggiungo il config-vesa.plist vengono comunque caricate le boot-arg del config.plist all'avvio.

Se invece elimino il config.plist e lascio solo il config-vesa.plist, non trovo nessuna boot-arg appena entro dentro Clover.

Sarò tonto ma non ho capito il criterio con cui Clover decide quali boot-arg (e quindi quale config) caricare :wallbash:

a volte carica il config ma non aggiorna i boot-args

quindi controlla.... poi di tanto in tanto F11 per reset NVRAM

Ok alla fine ho eliminato il config.plist vecchio e rinominato config-vesa.plist in config.plist: ora è finalmente arrivato all'installer!

Installo e vedo cosa succede

 

UPDATE: terminata l'installazione, solita storia, si inchioda sul boot verso il "Waiting for DSMOS" (foto sotto), poco prima di arrivare alla schermata di configurazione.

altra cosa che puoi fare è creare nella cartella kext una sottocartella 

10.15 (per catalina)

e spostarci tutti i kexts presenti in OTHERS tranne VirtualSMC/FakeSMC

 

se ora usi FakeSMC che ti ho messo è quello di slice, quindi magari puoi usare il voodoobattery al posto del batterySMC

https://github.com/CloverHackyColor/FakeSMC3_with_plugins/releases/download/241/Release.241.zip

 

visto che comunque da config ho disabilitato WEG spostalo assieme a LILU nella cartella OFF e prova così

 

10.15 con SATA100injector voodoobattery e voodooPS2

OTHER con FakeSMC

sostituisci virtualSMC con questo FakeSMC

 

FakeSMC.kext.zip

Ho provato e fallito con FakeSMC, rimane sempre bloccato su Waiting for DSMOS.

http://www.extracatchy.net/fix-waiting-for-dsmos-or-dsmos-has-arrived/

Questo articolo l'avevo già visto in passato, ho riprovato a seguirlo ma non ha funzionato: anche spostando i kext in una cartella backup o rimuovendo /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache (file che, tra l'altro, non esiste), e riavviando ad ogni modifica che effettuo, il risultato è sempre lo stesso.

Alla fine ho riorganizzato i kext in questo modo, ma ancora stessa storia, anche rieseguendo le istruzioni del link sopra dopo aver riorganizzato la EFI :no:

      Hi!
      So I've successfully built my rig and installed Mac os
      Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro Wifi Intel Core i7 9700k Ballistix Sport 32gb Samsung evo 500gb nv Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Pulse Corsair h60 The thing is that I got it running perfectly, even performed some heavy video renderings with no problem but sometimes it just restarts on its own, sometimes when I'm using Chrome, sometimes when I'm editing or whatever other task. Last time it happened I got the forbidden sign on the screen so I tried to boot up again using the -v flag and I got the "Couldn't allocate runtime area" message, which is very strange because I had no problems in booting up the system after I made my configurations in the config.plist

      Please someone give me some help with this problem, I'm completly stucked!!
      config.plist

      I'm trying to install Codec Commander in Catalina.
      While copying the hda-verb file in /usr/bin , I'm getting an error that the file system is read only.
      Is there any way to complete this install?

      This thread for installing Catalina on the Dell Latitude E6410 WITH NVIDIA GRAPHICS (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m) will help you install a fresh installation of Catalina on your Dell Latitude E6410, it will help you upgrade from 10.15.2 to 10.15.3 (if you originally installed Catalina from this thread) and it will also help you upgrade from Mojave 10.14.6 if you have already installed Mojave by following the instructions here.  The instructions in this first post assume that you are installing Catalina in an APFS container.  If you are curious about the evolution of this solution and how sleep/wake was solved, review the Mojave installation thread.
       
      Important: This Thread is NOT intended to help you install macOS on a Latitude E6410 with Intel HD Graphics (without Nvidia graphics).  The DSDT attached to this first post (in E6410-Catalina.zip) is VERY SPECIFIC to the Nvidia graphics implementation and has not been edited for HD Graphics - there are elements required for HD Graphics that are missing from the attached DSDT and there are DSDT mods that have not been tested with HD Graphics.  Also, the kexts attached to this first post are specific to a Broadcom Wi-Fi card which must replace the original Intel Wi-Fi card.
       
      This first post will be modified to reflect lessons learned and to reflect the most current working state of my Latitude E6410 (with NVidia 3100m discrete graphics) running Catalina.  Issues, observations and performance tips are recorded toward the bottom of this first post.  My recommended CLOVER configuration is specified toward the bottom of this first post.
       
      *** If you want help with your installation, please post your issue along with problem reporting files generated using @black.dragon74's problem reporting tool.  Google 'GENERATE PROPER PROBLEM REPORTING FILES black.dragon74' to find it. ***.  If Catalina's Read-Only protections block your installation of black.dragon74's gen_debug script, please copy the attached gen_debug script to your Desktop, change script properties with the terminal command 'chmod a+x ~/Desktop/gen_debug' and run the script from your Desktop.
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (replaced original Wi-Fi card) BIOS (version A17) configured as follows (leave default unless listed here): Boot Sequence: USB, Internal HDD, CD/DVD, Modular Bay HDD; Boot List Option: Legacy; Integrated NIC:Enabled; Parallel Port: Disabled; Serial Port: Disabled; SATA Operation: AHCI; Misc Devices: Enable Modular Bay, Camera, External USB, Microphone, Media Card and 1394; Latitude ON Reader: Disabled; Keyboard Illumination: Auto ALS and Input; Ambient Light Sensor: Enabled; OROM Keyboard Access: Disable; TPM Security: Disable; Computrace:Deactivate; CPU XD Support: Enable; Performance: Enable all options; Power Management: Disable Wake on AC, Disable Wake on LAN/WAN, Express Charge: Standard, Charge Behavior: Enabled; Keypad: Fn Key Only; Mouse/Touchpad: Touchpad/PS-2 Mouse; USB Emulation: Enable Legacy; Fn Key Emulation: Disabled; Fastboot: Thorough; Virtualization: Enable Intel Virtualization, Disable VT for Direct I/O, Disable Trusted Execution; Wireless Switch: Bluetooth and WLAN; Wireless Device Enable: Bluetooth and WLAN;   
      Versions of the software used in this installation are listed below the installation steps.  EFI and kexts for Catalina are attached to this first post in E6410-Catalina.zip.  CLOVER configuration is specified below the installation steps.
       
      Wi-Fi connection to an Access Point is delayed when using AppleALC for sound.  Do not use Apple ALC.  Use VoodooHDA pkg 2.9.2 v14 for sound.
       
      Steps to install Catalina on a Dell Latitude E6410 (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m)
      Make sure that your system matches my system description above (including BIOS version, Wi-Fi card, BIOS settings) If performing an upgrade from Mojave or a previous version of Catalina, backup your Mojave or Catalina partition! (Carbon Copy or similar) Download Catalina Installer Download DosDude Catalina Patcher Use DosDude Patcher to create Catalina USB Installer Delete LegacyUSBInjector.kext (we're using @RehabMan's USBInjectAll.kext with custom SSDT) and delete SIPManager.kext (CLOVER is managing SIP) from Catalina USB Installer's /Library/Extensions folder Copy all but the FakeSMC sensor kexts in E6410-Catalina.zip (attached) LE folder to the Catalina USB Installer /Library/Extensions (copy all kexts (including FakeSMC.kext) but not the FakeSMC sensor kexts) Install CLOVER Bootloader (Legacy) on USB Installer using the EFI in the E6410-Catalina.zip (attached).  Use the CLOVER configuration specified below.  Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Reset your Latitude E6410 NVRAM by doing the following (this may be important if you're making changes to your existing EFI and won't hurt anything if you're not making any changes) turn-off your laptop remove A/C power and main battery press and hold the power button for 30 seconds restore A/C power and battery Boot your Latitude E6410 from the Catalina USB Installer that you created in steps 5-8. Select "Reinstall macOS" (note that I have existing installations of Mojave and High Sierra on my Latitude E6410, so it's possible that this menu item changes to "Install macOS" if you don't have any previous macOS installations). Select your Catalina destination partition (which will be your Mojave or previous Catalina partition if you are upgrading) After the Catalina Installer reboots the first time, boot from the "macOS Installer" partition on the disk that you selected as your Catalina destination (not the macOS installer on the USB) After the Catalina Installer reboots the second time, boot the Catalina macOS Installer on the USB Select the Post Install Patcher utility Select only the following Post Install Patches (no other patches / options) Install Patch Updater Legacy Video After the Post Install Patcher reboots,  boot from the newly installed (or upgraded) Catalina partition and complete the macOS configuration Remove these kexts (if they exist) from /Library/Extensions: LegacyUSBInjector.kext, LegacyUSBVideoSupport.kext and SIPManager.kext If you are performing a fresh installation of Catalina: Install CLOVER on your boot disk and configure EFI using files in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip.  Use the CLOVER configuration below.  Your EFI Clover/kexts/Other folder needs only FakeSMC.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, USBInjectAll.kext and VoodooPS2.kext.  Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Install all kexts in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip LE folder to your /Library/Extensions folder.  NOTE: These instructions assume installation of Brcm kexts in /Library/Extensions.  Read the Brcm install instructions if you're installing kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other, since your installation and at least one kext WILL BE DIFFERENT. Copy HWMonitor from the application folder in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip to your Applications folder. Install VoodooHDA (I installed using the Classic method) Skip to Step 21 If you are upgrading from a previous version of Catalina using the instructions from this thread or from Mojave that you installed using the instructions here: Update Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /Library/Extensions) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. NOTE: These instructions assume installation of Brcm kexts in /Library/Extensions.  Read the Brcm install instructions if you're installing kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other, since your installation and at least one kext WILL BE DIFFERENT. Update IntelMausiEthernet.kext Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions Re-install VoodooHDA if necessary (I installed using the Classic method) Ensure PROPER kext installation: If you're manually installing kexts in /Library/Extensions, make sure that you execute the following (in terminal) cd /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel *.kext sudo chmod -R 755 *.kext sudo kextcache -i / After you execute 'sudo kextcache -i /' you should observe that ALL kexts are allowed.  If not, your kext directory attributes are probably incorrect.  Repeat kext installation and try again. Reboot from your new/upgraded Catalina partition Welcome to macOS Catalina! Change the keyboard type to ISO (System Preferences > Keyboard > Change Keyboard Type) Swap the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) Set hibernatemode: In terminal, execute sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage sudo touch /var/vm/sleepimage sudo chflags schg /var/vm/sleepimage  
      Version Info at the time of this writing:
      Catalina Installer 10.15.3 CLOVER v2.5k r5103 DosDude Catalina Patcher: v1.3.0 Lilu.kext 1.4.1 AirportBrcmFixup.kext 2.0.6 BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext 2.5.1 BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext 2.5.1 BrcmPatchRAM3.kext 2.5.1 IntelMausiEthernet.kext 2.5.0

      What is not working (that was working in Mojave)
      SD Card Slot (had to remove VoodooSDHC.kext which caused system freeze on wake)  
      Known Issues and Their Solutions
      (No solution yet) Brightness slider does not work in System Preferences > Displays.  Brightness is easily controlled with Dell brightness keys.  There is some work on this later in this thread, but I will not be solving this as I'm content with the Dell brightness keys (and Ambient Light Sensor works to auto-adjust brightness). I continue to refine the DSDT and CLOVER config.plist to optimize my Latitude E6410 for multi-booting between various macOS versions (High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina at the time of this writing). If you upgrade your Latitude E6410 EFI using my attached EFI, you may find that your Latitude E6410 is stuck in a boot-loop that ends in a white screen and reboots.  Clear your system by doing the following: turn off your laptop, remove A/C power, remove the main battery, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, restore A/C power and battery, boot normally.  I have only found this to be necessary (very rarely) after making an EFI change, but you may find it helpful if making kext changes in /Library/Extensions as well. (Work-around - no permanent solution yet) Cannot turn on Bluetooth after shutting-down with Bluetooth off.  Work-around is to leave Bluetooth on.  I don't use Bluetooth and don't mind, so this will likely be solved by someone else.  If you experience this issue and can't turn-on Bluetooth, I have found that putting the laptop to sleep (Fn-F1) and then waking the laptop restores proper operation of Bluetooth.  I have posted a problem description, logs and problem reporting files in this thread for help with this problem. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop does not sleep when closing lid.  Solution is to add a Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) in the DSDT.  No surprise that the Latitude E6410 has yet another incomplete ACPI implementation.  I am using the same EFI for High Sierra 10.13.6, Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina 10.15.3 and it works in all three macOSes. (No solution yet) No SD Card Slot (had to remove VoodooSDHC.kext) - I read somewhere that there is a solution that does not require any kexts (just a DSDT edit).  Haven't yet implemented this fix. (Not a problem that needs to be solved - leaving for historical purposes.  I am running Catalina without this.) - IOHWControl does not load under GFX0 (as observed in IORegistryExplorer).  Solution (if it needs to be solved) is to install AppleHWSensor.kext from a DosDude-patched Mojave /S/L/E in Catalina's /L/E.  Copy and install your own or use the kext attached to this post. (Solved - no further work required) Wi-Fi connection is delayed until a minute or so after boot - Use VoodooHDA and NOT AppleALC (Solved - no further work required) External USB ports do not work after waking from sleep (S3) - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Boot and shut-down time of Catalina is slower than Mojave - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Wi-Fi is not immediately available at OS startup - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop freezes on wake - Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions  
      Tips for Improved Performance (on this and other older systems)
      System Preferences > Spotlight > Search Results: Uncheck all options System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy: Add all Volumes System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce motion" System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce transparency"  
      Other tips
      If your fan is always running and temps are good, try pressing Fn + z (I haven't noticed this issue for a while since I completed DSDT edits for Mojave, but keeping this here for historical purposes)  
      CLOVER Installation: Use these configuration options
      Install Clover in the ESP Boot Sectors Install boot0af in MBR Clover for BIOS (legacy) booting Clover EFI 64-bits SATA BIOS Drivers, 64-bit Recommended drivers FSInject File System drivers ApfsDriverLoader Install RC scripts on target volume Themes Choose your desired theme Install Clover Preference Pane After clicking "Continue", if prompted with "This Clover package is incompatible with this version of macOS," install anyway

      Thanks to those who contributed to my Mojave solution and to the DosDude team (for the incredible macOS patchers), I think this Catalina installation was the easiest macOS installation that I have experienced (so far).  Many thanks to @Slice and his team for the incredible work on CLOVER and for continuing to support old legacy systems like this.  Also, thanks to @Mieze and @headkaze and others I'm sure for maintaining the Brcm kexts.  And finally, I still prefer to manually apply patches to the DSDTs in my systems.  CLOVER offers extensive patching functionality, but I'm old-school and like to have an error-free, fully-patched DSDT with a simple CLOVER config.plist.  I think that this manual DSDT patching approach (which required an extensive review and debugging of the original unpatched DSDT in this thread) is the reason that this Latitude E6410 is such a perfect MacBookPro6,2.  Thank you @RehabMan for being a great teacher and for always insisting on problem reporting files .

      Hi, I'm trying to install Mac Os Catalina on a HP 550-132NL.
      The system has:
      i7-6700
      RAM 12 GB
      GT 730
      LAN Realtek RTL8161
      ALC3863
       
      It passes the verbose phase but after the Apple logo goes away, it gets stuck on a grey screen and I can only move the pointer.
      Can I try to boot with the iGPU?

      Some people do have problem understanding AppleALC, how to use it for their own codecs. Here's how I used it for both Realtek ALC and IDT audio codecs.
