  1. Thanks Jake - that simple? And just put the aml and kext file generated in the relative folders in clover? Archive.zip
  2. Hi All - long time since posting here. Got my 9020 up and running and all appears well with the unit on Catalina 10.5.4 However - Need some help in mapping the USB ports on the machine - some of the rear USB not working / etc. Using Jake Lo guide and boot pack the system runs fine and do have work arounds for the ports however would like to know how to map correctly and tidy up the peripherals on the USB front. Debug file attached Many thanks Dan debug_19882.zip
  3. Hey max - yes mate thank you soo much. System is very nice and obviously very similar to yours. the trackpad is still a little jumpy however can live with that, will carry out a few more tests to see if it can improve. battery life is poor - hopefully @Jake Lo could shed some light. thanks again man, dan
  4. Hi Jake, Got quite bit further on the t470s - System is now fully functional, battery status, wifi, trackpad. System works solid. Got some tips from the Max 1974 thread and a few other members of the community that you helped out - Only real issue I'm having would be battery life - battery drains really quickly from a full charge - approx 1 hour. Is there any tricks to get this better? I installed the intel power gadget and could not see any resources hog that would indicate as such. Hoping you could take a look at my debug files and offer any assistance (again) if you could. Many thanks in advance Dan debug_30561.zip
  5. Hey man, I've no experience with the the 7000 series but can confirm the E5450 is rock solid and a very easy install using @Jake Lo guide. Updates are quick and easy and have not had a bit of bother with it. Battery would be approx 3-4 hours depending what I'm doing with it. However the unit is probably 3 years old at this stage so I expect battery life would be better with a new battery. Hope this helps Dan
  6. Hi Jake, Building from previous work with High Sierra, got little further progress on the t470s. Have attached debug files for review. Mojave 10.14.2 however still issues on trackpad (jumpy and battery status shows 0%). Apart from that everything seems good. Happy new year to you Dan debug_6724.zip
  7. `no worries Jake - As reference the model in my T470s is a: SAMSUNG MZVLW512HMJP-000L7 and original to the laptop. Thanks again pal - be happy to offer donation for this and all your guys efforts to this community if you let me know where to
  8. Hi Jake - tried a few of the files from the repo but ended up braking my system Got it back to original state from the install USB and clover folder from the debug files from a few posts back. Definitely believe it isrelated to a fine tune on the DSDT however its beyond my capabilities at this stage. If you could offer any advice or point me in the right direction I would be grateful Thanks in advance Dan
  9. Hi Jake - the t470 files in the repo are the ones that were used for mine. But still the issues as described above. ill take another look and see what I can find my end
  10. Hi Jake, Thanks for replying - apologies for the vague description in original post. Main issues are: Slow boot time and can only successfully boot in verbose Trackpad works using rehabmans voodooPS2 kext however is jumping - curser jumps erratically during use. No battery indicator unless power plugged in. In energy saver sys prefs the show battery indicator button does not work (stay on) and battery charge shows 0%. When power is plugged in only shows 7% charge and looks like it is not charging (but is). This particular model of the Thinkpad has 2 batteries installed. Brightness buttons also not working I installed High Sierra (10.13.6) quite easily on the machine using files and kexts from this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/315451-guide-lenovo-t460-macos-with-clover/ There is a user there with the t470p model which is very similar however I did use custom kexts particular to this model (wifi card etc) and edited the config.plist best I can but do feel custom edits are required on the DSDT / SSDT to fine tune the system correctly (beyond my skillset unfortunately ) The DSDT and SSDT files in the debug files are original from my machine dumped from clover. Thanks again Jake
  11. Thanks Jake - I've posted in the Lenovo threads. This thread can be marked as solved for the Dell Latitude E5450 fine tune Many thanks again Dan
  12. Hi Jake (again) Many thanks for your assistance on the Dell Latitude. Hoping to get your assistance again on this machine - Lenovo T470S. System is installed and fully operation however there are a few issues Attached Debug files for review. Any ideas? Dan debug_11431.zip
  13. Jake - you da man!! System running well. Will test over the next few days however things so far work a treat. Sound, battery indicator all running nicely. Just re the virtual SMC - is there any sensor kexts to monitor CPU / graphics like the old FMC plugins? Again - many thanks pal. I also got myself a Lenovo Thinkpad T470s model - do you have much experience with these machines?
  14. Hi Jake - apologies only seeing this now. My notifications prefs were all over the place. I actually posted again as there is a battery / power issue in this thread along with the debug files - And by the way - now on ALC sound many thanks!!! Works a treat!
  15. Hi Jake and Team! Been a while since posting on here - hope everyone is well. My Dell E5450 with the help of Jake's guide was running nicely on HS so went to update to Mojave and success! Sound fixed with update from Jake too I believe a little fine tuning is required as battery status not constant - need to enable in 'energy saver' in sys prefs. I have attached the debug files - system is great and a little fine tuning by someone more experienced than me can get these systems fully operational with Mojave. Thanks in advance Dan debug_22307.zip
  16. Hi guys 0 successfully upgraded to Mojave on my Dell E5450 - update went smoothly however lost sound. Originally on the ALC293 however in a way to enable audio installed AppleALC with whatever green kext and disabled the patches in config plist however no luck. Hoping I can get some help ? CLOVER.zip
  17. Hi Jake - How are you mate? I was hoping you could help me. On my latitude E5450 - Sierra all good using your guide - many thanks. Updated to High Sierra using your upgrade guide, all good too, except Volume buttons on keyboard are not operational. I have volume and can adjust the volume from the slider in the menu bar however buttons are a no go. Any ideas? Any assistance you could offer I will be most grateful Dan
  18. Thanks again mate - hopefully these posts will help others in the future for their Dell Optiplex 745. Love this Forum!! Regards, Dan
  19. Also to confirm - I removed the device properties from the Chameleon boot.plist file and boots fine with working internet on 'Ethernet' Chameleon boot.plist file: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>ForceHPET</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>npci=0x2000 darkwake=0</string> <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>/Extra/smbios.plist</string> <key>SystemType</key> <string>1</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>LoginToLion</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> <key>USBBusFix</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist> No device properties at the end like the original before the LAN patch on the DSDT! Hervé you rock mate - many many thanks!!! Oh and the BCM5722D kext is version 2.3.5 (in my extra folder a few posts back) Dan
  20. Hi Hervé, Done as you advised and rebooted fine with internet this time using your DSDT: ifconfig output: Home-Servers-Mac-Pro$ ifconfig lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384 options=3<RXCSUM,TXCSUM> inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1 inet netmask 0xff000000 inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 gif0: flags=8010<POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1280 stf0: flags=0<> mtu 1280 en0: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 options=3<RXCSUM,TXCSUM> ether 00:19:b9:16:fb:f1 inet6 fe80::219:b9ff:fe16:fbf1%en0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4 inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast media: autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>) status: active Home-Servers-Mac-Pro$
  21. Hi Hervé, Tried the New DSDT but no internet on reboot unfortunately Steps I took: - Removed old DSDT to desktop - Inserted new DSDT in /Extra - Ran myFix full - Reboot The machine rebooted fine but no traffic going in or out (I use iStat) and also confirmed with the Ethernet device showing unplugged in System Prefs / Network. I removed the old device and tried to add new but no go. It did show up as 'Ethernet' and not Ethernet Adaptor en0 if that is any help...
  22. Hi Hervé, Many thanks mate, I will try this when I get home tonight and report back Devices and kexts files empty? doh, I will re-upload if necessary, apologies on that Dan
  23. I'm the same, got lucky with the Nvidia card I had being compatible so graphics issues were non-existant for me. Sorry i cannot help much more. Dan
  24. Hi Hervé, Attached are 2 more files pulled from the system info (if they are any use) which shows the devices and kexts currently installed Dan's Devices & Kexts.zip
