  1. The shorter cable worked... Is there some sort of cable length limit with HDMI cables?
  2. strange... hooked it up to a monitor with a shorter HDMI cable and it worked... now what's wrong with the TV??? Going to test with the tv and the same shorter cable tonight.
  3. E6230 and No HDMI video signal 1. used the EFI folder that's on the install thread 2. connected HDMI cable to tv 3. display preferences shows the tv and all the various scaling settings & other options, BUT the tv does not display anything or have any video at all 4. the laptop display adjusts with mirroring and other settings AS IF a display is attached 5. Not sure what's wrong... 6. checked my bios settings, but didn't see much to change in the video section 7. i recall HDMI working under Catalina and/or Mojave, but don't always have the laptop
  4. Two issues have emerged... 1. Keyboard does not work (internal usb seems to be off)... 2. No WiFI.. was using the patched kext from https://github.com/khronokernel/IO80211-Patches in an effort to make it work, but still no positive result. I got a BCM94360CS2 card as in the picture (advertised as working OOB on Ebay... But wanted to get the existing card working... I tried optimizing my EFI folder using Open Core sanity utility, but I think I might have done something wrong. Somewhere along the line, I lost an internal USB
  5. Fixed with the patched kext from https://github.com/khronokernel/IO80211-Patches
  6. I have an E6230 with an Apple Airport Card. Using Big Sur using the bootpack found on this site. I have bluetooth, but no WiFi, not sure what to do to activate it. It was working under Catalina.
  7. I created a Clover Boot EFI... I have been able to boot into an Install USB and have managed to install it onto a SSD But upon reboot into Big Sur I get the following in an endless loop... CLOVER.zip
  8. I moved them out of the folder Reset the config file Still got the same result [PCD configuration begin] cons Archive3.zip
  9. Somehow the system hangs at PCI configuration begins... But this is only when one boots from the HD... The exact same EFI folder is OK from a USB drive. I don't know how to fix this. Archive A is from the USB Archive 2 is an updated one on the HD (new OC version...) I only am able to boot from a USB boot drive Please help... ArchiveA.zip Archive2.zip
  10. ... resolved sort of... updated virtualsmc without the extra battery / dell / sensor files... Then was able to install Release Candidate 2... Have not traced down which file caused this...
  11. I have Big Sur Beta 8 on this machine... But when I attempt to install Release Candidate 2, the boot loader hangs as show in the image... What is this hanging at? Please help...
  12. Has anyone tried booting with the latest Clover?
  13. I traced it back to two items A. the USB kexts (used the ones from your EFI folder) and B. This patch for the caddy... "Try adding this patch to Kernel patching, works for Catalina, not sure still for Big Sur Identifier = com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort Find = 40600200 Replace = 00000000 Comment = Patch Hotplug / Caddy" Will upload the EFI that works shortly...
  14. this was the update install for Beta 9... There is no full installer for Beta 9... SHOULD I do a Beta 8 install over what I have and then install Beta 9? the Beta 9 install has already installed... OR just wait for Beta 10...
