Go to /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Origin and clear al the files

Reboot to Clover GUI, press F4, continue booting

Mount EFI partition, compress and attach the Origin folder for review.


For static noise in headphone, download latest CodecCommander.kext and move it to /Library/Extensions

Repair permissions and rebuild cache

nv_disable=1 boot parameter only instructs the OS to ignore the nVidia GPU so that no drivers are loaded; but it does not disable the hardware (i.e. turn it/power it off) so the dGPU still draws current off the battery. The dGPU can be disabled through ACPI patching.


Can you please take a screenshot for that "display controller icon" ?

[CMD][SHIFT][3] or [CMD][SHIFT][4], following by [SPACE] + left button mouse/touchpad click.

Erm... that's the icon for an ExpressCard card! You must have a card inserted in the EC slot of your laptop... "Display Controller" is meant to represent what you currently have in place. What is it?


My E62x0 laptops will show this when fitted with my GMYLE BC620 USB3.0 EC card.
