Hi All,

 

after installing OSX several times, trying out patches, fixes and so on .....

The best result i could get was:

 

Audio working but only Stereo (edited kext)

Network working (using skge.kext)

Firewire working out of the box

USB Working out of the box

ICH8 Support

Jmicron PATA and SATA working (edited kext)

 

ATI X1950XTX 512MB , no dual screen, have to use DVI to VGA adapter, QE and CI supportet, resolution 1600x1024

(not native resolution, would be 1680x1050, but was not possible)

 

This was already a good working mac, but not perfect enough for me, so i was thinking about to stop

that project.

Last try with a Nvidia (7900GS) card from a friend:

Put in the card and made a new installation.

Installed Natit for Nvidia and patched the other things (audio, nic ....)

Result:

DVI out is working, Dual Head only Mirror mode, power saving not working and my Monitors were recognized correctly !!

 

Ok this is better than with the ATI Card, but to buy a new Nvidia Card just for a better working mac clone ? NO !

 

So, the test with the Nvidia Card was interesting but thats it, and i changed my ATI back into the machine.

Bootet up in to OSX without to change somthing.

And Voila, DVI was working and a the resolution was 1024x768 not changeable.

Now, copied the natit_edited kext file into the Extensions folder, cleaned up the system and reboot.

 

And to my large astonishment, everything is now perfect !!!

Full Dual Head Support, DVI out for both LCD's, powersaving is working, QE and CI support !!! Juppiiiii !!!

I am so Happy now !! Nearly a perfect mac clone !!

 

mery christmas to all

PS: see my screenshots !!

Hi BarryBar,

 

i am using the ASUS EAX1950XTX/HTVDP/512M

 

will post my files later today.

 

this card is running nearly perfect.

the only disadvantage is that the fan always runs with 100%

Thank you so much! Finally this card is up and running :D

 

 

One question though... is there a way to control the fan speed? when i boot into osx, the fan seems to be at max speed, which is quite loud. also, i'm not so sure if it's good for the cards lifetime to keep running at max speed.

    • Hello MaLd0n,   Could you please make DSDT edits for my new Skylake desktop Lenovo M910t    RunMe files: https://www96.zippyshare.com/v/5bgqAiga/file.html
        Thank you very much in advance!
    • Have you tried adjusting the Khz in midi pref pane or editing the info plist to suit your needs. that sometimes corrects weird noise behavior.
    • Hello Mald0n:

      Nice to meet you, I have created a post about my problem on High Sierra before and I was redirected to this guide by Allan.

      As mentioned in the post, I was not able to get pass the login screen at initial boot and the system could not shutdown occasionally.

      However I solve the high temperature problem when I replace the clover folder you provide on first post, currently the cpu temperature is around 5x-6x'c after 10 mins up time.

      Attached is the clover folder, ioreg as well as the send me app, thanks for your help!

      p.s. I notice that your clover boot efi is a old traditional grey apple boot logo, Is there a version of modern dark and white logo one that I could replace with? Thank you!
