Failed to install macOS - memory panic stackshot succeeded

Posted (edited)


I'm new on this forum, I appologize if I make a mistake :)...


I tried to install Niresh Catalina on my laptop, but I can't finish the installation properly.

I have a "Memory panic stackshot succeeded" error.

I seems to be an error due to "ACPI", with error "AE_ALREADY_EXISTS".


This is a link of a video of my screen in slow motion https://photos.app.goo.gl/BHkou4WEg33DA9ib7 (I can do another if logs are not visible enough)


This error appears after the 10-15min loading of the installation, after a reboot.


This is my laptop https://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00167274.html.


If someone can help me, I will apreciate a lot!

Thank you

Sorry but due to forum rules you will not find help on here concerning OSx86 distros such as Niresh. I suggest you post in their forums.

      Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?
      DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.

      Current Release Version: 3.1.1

      The system dumps are saved to a folder or your choice, but defaulting to the same directory as the main application. You can choose to setup a symlink to make it simple to run DarwinDumper from the Terminal.
      There is an option to create an html report showing a complete overview of the dumps. This report will mostly just contain the text dumps as you'll find in the main dump directory, but for some dumps there is extra processing to try to present the information in a better way. For example, the Disk Partitions and Unique ID's dump will show a visual map of the disk layout, and the DMI Tables (SMBIOS) dump will show the data split by table type.

      Note: The html report does not contain all files from a complete dump so if seeking assistance for a problem and you wish to send someone a DarwinDump then you will want to send the complete dump directory and not just the .html report file.
      The following can be read and dumped by DarwinDumper:
      - ACPI tables.
      - Audio codec and further info.
      - Boot loaders and configuration files.
      - CPU info.
      - Device-properties.
      - Disk partition structure / info.
      - Disk sectors (hex).
      - DMI (SMBIOS).
      - EDID.
      - I/O Kit Registry.
      - EFI Memory Map.
      - EFI vars (some).
      - Kernel information
      - Kexts - (list of currently loaded kexts).
      - Memory.
      - NVRAM (both Apple specific and UEFI firmware variables).
      - SMC Keys.
      - LSPCI (PCI vendor & device codes) dumps.
      - Power (Sleep/Hibernate) settings.
      - RTC.
      - System Profiler.
      - System BIOS.
      - System Log(s).
      - Video BIOS.

      Running DarwinDumper from the command line:
      From Terminal, you can initiate DarwinDumper by running the following script directly.
      /DarwinDumper.app/Contents/Resources/public/bash/script.sh To help with this, the UI has a Symlink option which you can click to create a symbolic link which points to the above script. DarwinDumper can then be subsequently run from the command-line by loading a new Terminal window and typing darwindumper followed by return.

      Known issues: v3.1.0
      1 - When SIP File Protection is enabled, dumping disk partition info of non-APFS containers and disks which are not APFS physical stores may fail when running from DarwinDumper via the graphical interface. However, it's been known to succeed when using DarwinDumper from the command line. Something to do with osascript.
      2 - lzma archive option has been known to fail on macOS 10.15 when running dumps requiring root privileges.
      macOS Version support:
      - v2.9.9.2 is for older macOS versions
      - v3.0.4 requires OS X 10.9 and newer to run in the Finder, though it should work from the command line okay on older OS versions.
      - v3.1.0 was updated for newer macOS versions and has been tested on 10.13 and 10.15.

      Hi all !
      I'm migrating from Clover to OpenCore and stuck on an ACPI error at boot:
      ACPI Error [_STA] Namespace lookup failure, AE_ALREADY_EXISTS This comes from trying to load my custom SSDT-EC tables.
      From what I gather, the preferred method of dealing with EC0 for Desktops with OC is to add an _STA method to EC0 to change return code to 0, and then to add a new fake EC device. Both done via SSDT-EC.
      Problem is, my EC0 defined in the system DSDT already has an _STA method. And it looks like it can't be overridden through SSDT redefinition at boot. Is this excepted ACPI behavior? Is it not possible to override/redefine methods like _STA? If so, what other option do I have?
      Here is the original EC0 device in DSDT
      Device (EC0) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0C09")) // _HID: Hardware ID Name (_UID, One) // _UID: Unique ID Name (_GPE, 0x6E) // _GPE: General Purpose Events Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) // _STA: Status { Return (0x0F) } ....  
      Here is my very standard SSTD-EC for Skylake:

      Hello everyone, I hope you are well and safe. Long time Hackintosh user, didn't post new topics really as most solutions are here, just need some good digging around.
      However, there has been no talk about renaming "bare" PCI devices shown in IORegistryExplorer such as e.g. pci8086,1911@8 or pci8086,9def@14,2 to something more meaningful such as ACPI Devices like (SPI1) or (PGMM) or (SHRM) etc. etc.
      I have been experimenting a lot with different SSDT ways of making code and injecting the compiled AML via Clover, in preparation for OpenCore, but I cannot succeed for this one.
      Why is this needed? For starters, I have two good reasons.
      a) My device pci8086,3ed0@0 is MCHC per lspci and despite Clover being able to inject the parameter AddMCHC, I cannot achieve the same result via SSDT injection instead, meaning OpenCore would not do it either (well, for now).
      b) Moreover, I discovered by accident from another config.plist in some Github repository, that my device pci8086,9df9@12 that is listed in lspci as Coffee Lake Thermal Controller [8086:9df9] can be set to being compatible with Apple's accepted and combatible device-id of pci8086,9d21 via Clover injection in Devices -> Properties section or via SSDT, but I cannot make it get a human-friendly ACPI name at all so it get to work and load kext com.apple.driver.AppleIntelPCHPMC.
      Believe me, I have a few structures of code... Here is my code (compiles 100%) as an example and below, a blocking issue as well.
      /* * Intel ACPI Name Space Architecture for NUC8i7BEH2 device * * NOTES: * Assigned PCI device generic (PGMM) and working (PMCR) to undefined devices in IODeviceTree. * Added new (SBUS) sub-system (BUS0) and (DVL0) devices for improved vanilla detection. * Added new (LPCB) sub-system (EC) device for improved Catalina detection. */ DefinitionBlock ("SSDT-OTHER.aml", "SSDT", 2, "Clover", "OTHER", 0x00000000) { External (_SB_.PCI0, DeviceObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.LPCB, DeviceObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC, DeviceObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.SBUS, DeviceObj) Scope (\_SB.PCI0) { // Device (MCHC) // Intel Corporation Host Bridge/DRAM Registers [8086:3ed0] // { // Name (_ADR, 0x00000000) // } // Device (PGMM) // Intel Corporation Core Processor Gaussian Mixture Model [8086:1911] // { // Name (_ADR, 0x00080000) // } Device (PMCR) // Intel Corporation Coffee Lake Thermal Controller [8086:9df9] { Name (_ADR, 0x00120000) } // Device (SRAM) // Intel Corporation Coffee Lake Shared SRAM [8086:9def] // { // Name (_ADR, 0x00142000) // } // Device (SPI1) // Intel Corporation Coffee Lake Serial Bus SPI Controller [8086:9da4] // { // Name (_ADR, 0x001F5000) // } } Scope (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB) // Intel Corporation Coffee Lake LPC Controller [8086:9d84] { Device (EC) { Name (_HID, "ACID0001") Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) { If (_OSI ("Darwin")) { Return (0x0F) } Else { Return (Zero) } } } } // Do not rename EC0, H_EC, etc. to EC as these devices are incompatible with macOS // and may break at any time; AppleACPIEC kext must NOT load. If your motherboard // has an existing Embedded Controller of PNP0C09 type, use the code below to disable. Scope (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC) { Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) { If (_OSI ("Darwin")) { Return (Zero) } Else { Return (0x0F) } } } Scope (\_SB.PCI0.SBUS) // Intel Corporation Coffee Lake SMBus Controller [8086:9da3] { Device (BUS0) { Name (_ADR, Zero) Name (_CID, "smbus") Device (DVL0) { Name (_ADR, 0x57) Name (_CID, "diagsvault") Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer (One) {0x57}) } Return (Package (0x02) {"address", 0x57}) } } } } } So if I use External (_SB_.PCI0, DeviceObj) reference on top, then a Scope (\_SB.PCI0) under it, I found out after many tests and reboots that device with 0x00120000 address is somehow allowed to be assigned a "name" in IODeviceTree but not any others! If I enable the other ones, nothing gets injected in this SSDT as a result !
      00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation 8th Gen Core Processor Host Bridge/DRAM Registers [8086:3ed0] (rev 08) 00:08.0 System peripheral [0880]: Intel Corporation Core Processor Gaussian Mixture Model [8086:1911] 00:12.0 Signal processing controller [1180]: Intel Corporation Coffee Lake Thermal Controller [8086:9df9] (rev 30) 00:14.2 RAM memory [0500]: Intel Corporation Coffee Lake Shared SRAM [8086:9def] (rev 30) 00:1f.5 Serial bus controller [0c80]: Intel Corporation Coffee Lake SPI Controller [8086:9da4] (rev 30) I guess this is likely due to the way my Intel NUC8i7BEH's BIOS and ACPI code is written ?
      What's amazing is that if we use Clover's AddMCHC option, in MacIASL I see inside the main DSDT a new code portion added in the _SB.PCI0 very very end at the bottom:

      But if I uncomment the code for adding Device (MCHC) in my SSDT code above, the device will not get injected ! This is nuts.
      @MaLd0n I have been following most of your work for many years and know that you have better knowledge of ACPI code than me, can you possibly advise how we can rename these "naked" PCI devices in IORegistry Explorer to something meaningful like Device (XYZ) ? Is this possible via SSDT code injection?
      Anyone else you have in mind, that could help? @Hervé peut-être, maybe you?
      The idea is that, except device at 0x00120000 address being accepted (by chance!) and renamed as Device (PMCR) that helps enable the native power-management by injecting later in Clover's configuration a <key>compatible</key> ID, all others including MCHC cannot be assigned a name.
      Your help is appreciated... I tried ways to define Devices with root " \ " reference as in External (\_SB_.PCI0, DeviceObj) and Scope (\_SB.PCI0) and without this, for the love of me I cannot understand how to do it.
      Moreover, having disassembled all AML files obtained at Clover Boot time, there is no reference to a device with addresses Name (_ADR, 0x00000000), Name (_ADR, 0x00080000), Name (_ADR, 0x00120000) or Name (_ADR, 0x001F5000) anywhere...
      Could it be that they do not belong to Scope (\_SB.PCI0) at all ? But Hackintool does report them as being under PciRoot(0x0) ! Could it be differently under some other device instead? ACPIPlane in IORegistryExplorer doesn't show anything
      IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/MCHC@0 --> PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/PMCR@12 --> PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x12,0x0) IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/pci8086,9def@14,2 --> PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x14,0x2) IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/pci8086,9da4@1F,5 --> PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1F,0x5)  
      Thanks... hope I can resolve this before spending time migrating to OpenCore...!
      Here's a screenshot of the "bare" pci8086,xxxx devices without injection of my code at all, except Clover's AddMCHC option.

      The laptop in question: Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 (Model: ZQ3) (refer to the "Spoiler" at the end if you want the machine specs)
      "So what are you bugging us for?" Good question, because I am usually an introvert and usually just keep looking for answers but I could not find some. Jumping to it...
      What does not work and I would like thoughts on:
      Bluetooth does not register, used to on previous installs (sorry, I did not pay attention to see if this was caused by me updating to 10.8.5 but that was necessary for the below functions) (It does not work in Debian either - Ignore) LAN and WLAN  - I have found Kexts (somewhere, I think I just lost them... dang it...) for the WLAN but I have yet to try them, nothing for the LAN I know this is cheating but I read that The NDISulator for FreeBSD (HINT HINT) is a port of NDISwrapper for Linux that runs Windows XP network drivers in Linux or BSD Brightness controls work from the middle down on the "Sun" brightness overlay, I got this far from following this: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/ but I am kind of thinking of trying: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/?do=findComment&comment=2214344 . My "magic number" is: 0xF        I used DSDTEditor in Windows, since I figured all the drivers are loaded, to extract the DSDT and compile something that somewhat works... Wake from sleep issue - I tried the above guide for that but I get a no backlit display and I can see that the cursor in the password field is not flashing when I use an external light source, but it will reboot when I press Ctrl + Alt + Power "button" (it is actually a slider) and then also clear my freaking CMOS right down to the clock... yeah I have the ACPI fix implmented and it usually works... DVD Player.app reports that no viable video device was found (personally I don't care about the DVD Player.app problem, just wanted to put that out there for the heck of it) The microphone port always sounds like it is going through a [dirty] guitar effects petal no matter what sliders are adjusted  
      Likely causes of:
      Bluetooth (BCM92046), WIFI (BCM943225HM) - So, I USED TO be able to turn on the WIFI from within Windows then reboot into Mac OS and have it work but I noticed recently that the indicator light for them turns off BEFORE it reboots now. When Windows or Android load, it lights up- "No... really, captain obvious?!"... anyways... working "No really Sherlock!" so OBVIOUSLY, the OS has to activate them... and preferably ignore the wireless switching button For the WIFI module, if you omit the 9 and HM in a search, results appear! Brightness - Will get reset to full "Bright light! Bright light!" when a "Load System Defaults" is applied from within the BIOS settings but like the WIFI and Bluetooth the OS will forcefully take control of it Microphone In sounding dirty - me being lazy with the audio drivers LAN (BCM57760) - I dunno...  when I search it, nothing comes up...  
      "How did you get this far?"
      Update the BIOS, this is oh so very important (refer to the battery section of the "Spoiler" for the reson) PLEASE BACKUP YOUR BIOS FIRST! PLUG THE MACHINE INTO THE AC ADAPTER/CHARGER! DO NOT FORCE THE COMPUTER TO SHUTDOWN NOR REMOVE THE BATTERY NOR UNPLUG IT FROM THE AC ADAPTER/CHARGER WHILE IT IS UPDATING! I WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR BRICKED MACHINES! So it will boot off of the (Niresh) Mac OS X 10.8 with no changes to anything "Awesome" but you may still need at least a USB mouse "Aww" If you have the option to remove the display drivers/kexts otherwise it will not to boot or not display If you forgot this, breathe "You think that's air your breathing?"... anyways... during the bootloader, go into single user mode [ -s ] and follow the on screen instructions to allow for modifying the files. You will want to PREFERABLY create a folder where Mac OS cannot read them and move the IntelHDGraphics Kexts into it You are likely going to need an external USB keyboard as well now that it is installed Now install the described Kexts in the "Spoiler" associated with the hardware to get more functionality and loose the USB HICs  
      Any help pertaining to the Bluetooth, WIFI, LAN, bizarre brightness and wake after sleep backlit display issue would be wonderful... Thank you for your time and I hope that I helped anyone else out with some of their own issues pertaining to the Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 ZQ3 no nVidia with i5 laptop...
