I have just re-made the Catalina installer, with the updated OS. It could not install from it, like it could not copy. Then I have tried to reinstall Mojave, it worked pretty cleary last year the exact pen drive. It failed as well, saying something like: not package found, contact the system administrator. I was able to boot from USB pen drive Linux and install Windows from DVD. But no macOS from the pen drive, even from what worked fine before. I have reseted the BIOS several times, no succes. The first sign of something wrong was this: When I first tried to boot Catalina, it said something about BIOS (BIOS, not UEFI) reset and enter setup. I hapenned several times on my attempts. If something screwed in my hardware? The USB ports? The BIOS perhaps?
Hi I wonder if you can help me out guys.
I have few issues here
when I boot the clover entry screen do not show the disk icons until i press enter
(If I disconnect the keybord all is smooth, clover start, shows disk icons and boot from Mojave)
Randomly the keyboard and mouse become pretty unstable. The mouse cursor start flashing or the keyboard start to type repetedly <<<<<<<<<<< when i Press the spacebar or some other button
(this behaviour is applied to all keyboard I have tried, actually 3 different ones)
KB and Mouse are plugged on a USB 3.0 ports
I have tried to reset the keyboard Pref but NO LUCK
I have changed Keyboard - Same error
I enclose IOREGregistry and config.plist
MY CURRENT BUILD
ASROCK Z270 PRO4

I believe that there is some code conflict but I have no idea what is wrong
iMac di imac27.ioreg.zip
A setup with an IVY bridge e5430 dell worked fine. but now seems the XHC device
is a hardware issue. There is no bios setting to enable disable. Only enable/disable boot/external.USB in general.
All set to enable. Also just mention of USB in power settings wake on USB.
Did show up when I set up the ports w/USBINJECTALL, then was working on imessage isssue when the DSDT
stopped loading after updating clover. I had two versions of MAcIasl. One with iasl 6. and one had 6.2a. Kept
the 6.2a, was RM's most recent. One problem Im confused by is it compiles fine but after saved if its opened,
the error that was repaired comes back.
If (LEqual (PM6H, One))
CreateBitField (BUF0, \_SB.PCI0._Y0C._RW, ECRW) // _RW_: Read-Write Status
Store (Zero, ECRW (If (PM0H)
CreateDWordField (BUF0, \_SB.PCI0._Y0D._LEN, F0LN) // _LEN: Length
Store (Zero, F0LN)
Loads with the error but not sure what happened on the original that worked.
Going over the boot log, The XHC device is there under the PCI readings dont think hardware issue... 1e31 Just seems the saved DSDT should not
have errors after saved, but using the other version of Maciasl, the DSDT would save without errors and open without but it would not load.
acted like there was no FakeSMC...
Edit: Seems all the saved DSDT have that error when re-opened using that version RM's Maciasl w/iasl v.6.2a but seems to load fine.
Hello, I am new here, so I apologize if I've chosen the wrong subforum for this question.
I am scratching my head a bit on an issue with a clients MacBook pro. He was having USB connection issues and claimed the laptop wasn't detecting any USB connected to it.
Figuring it was a failed USB port, I took it in but ended up just feeling more confused after doing some diagnostics.
It came in loaded with Catalina, a recent upgrade spurned the beginning of the issues the client told me.
I decided to revert it back to the default OS in the base recovery image, which is Yosemite.
Upon finishing the install, I found that the USB port was in fact working again. Figuring I had resolved the issue, I updated it back to Catalina just to be met with the same issue upon reinstalling.
Tried nvram, pram, and smc reset each to no avail.
One thing to note is that during boot, the USB is getting power as it lights up when connected during boot up.
But the ports are dead as soon as it boots into the operating system.
I have a strong feeling that this is a driver issue. I tried unloading and reloading the USB IO kext, with no noticable change.
Is anyone here familiar with this issue? Would there be any other kext related troubleshooting i can perform ? Is it possible to revert to the kext used in Yosemite on catalina ?
One last thing to note, on Yosemite the USB was functioning 100%. But I did get a strange notification that the USB ports were using power even when there wasn't any connected to it. Either way, I find it very very odd that it works perfectly in Yosemite.
