  1. Thanks for the information and link Hervé. I assumed that I had a bad configuration somewhere, I just couldn't find it.
  2. Hi everyone! So I just reinstalled Catalina on my E7270, (I had to use the SSD drive for a different system), and I'm having a strange problem with my WiFi. I'm using a genuine Apple Airport card, BCM943224PCIEBT2. When I boot from a USB, using Jake Lo's clover for Catalina, the WiFi starts with no problem. However, when I boot from the hard drive, the WiFi is greyed out our keeps trying to connect, but never does. I've tried fiddling with my kext's in Clover, removing the following: AirportBrcmFixup.kext BrcmPatchRAM2.kext BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext BrcmFirmwareData.kext FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext As I believe that they are unnecessary for a genuine Apple device, but then my WiFi disappears completely. I'm attaching my Clover from my SDD and boot drive, along with a screen shot from system information. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong? Thanks! zog E7270 hard drive EFI.zip JakeLo Boot EFI.zip
  3. Hi everyone! I posted this question over on https://www.insanelymac.com/ but I haven't gotten any hits. I've been going around in circles for the last few days trying to find an up to date guide for generating DSDT/SSDT's. Everything that I'm finding 4 or 5+ years old and are meant for chameleon bootloader. Does anyone have any good links for creating proper DSDT/SSDT for Mojave/Catalina? Thanks! zog
  4. Thanks Jake Lo, but all closing the lid didn't work. However closing the lid does is disables the laptop LCD, so I don't have windows popping up that I can't reach or find. (chuckle), I also found out that I forgot to replace the magnet in the bezel when I did my 13.3" LCD upgrade. Fortunately I have a clump of small magnets near my desk, so I just left one on the palmrest. The mod is in "Phase 1", so I will be opening up the bezel soon anyway. Also, on the dock, the rear USB ports seem to work fine, but the ones on the left side aren't seen by the system. They are getting power, (my cell phone is plugged into one of them). Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks!
  5. I was able to get my 21"'s running by plugging in a DVI from monitor 1 to the docking station and a HDMI from monitor 2 into the laptop itself. However, there is no display from the laptop's LCD. I think that the problem is that the video will only push 2 display's. Since I really don't need the 3rd display, I'm good to go. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks! zog
  6. Hi everyone! I normally run my M4800 as my "desktop" off of a Dell Pro2X docking station. This gives me 2 21" monitors plus my laptops LCD display. However, I just screwed up my M4800's power switch and I'm Using my E7270 until a new switch arrives. I just tried to connect my E7270 to my Dell Pro2X docking station and I'm only getting a mirrored display off of my monitors. I tried to change the configuration in System Preferences/Display, but there is no second monitor.Does anyone know a work around for this problem? BTW, I'm connected to the 21"s via DVI. I did try connecting one of the monitors via HDMI, but it didn't work. Thanks! zog
  7. Thanks Jake Lo, BTW, I never did figure out this part: "Change the layout-id in Config to 18"
  8. JAKE YOUR A GENIUS!!! I swapped your DSDT and config into my Clover and rebooted and I have sound! (I did modify the config.plist as recommended). I didn't apply any patches to the DSDT that I uploaded, I just fixed the errors, (problems with syntax). Should I go ahead and compile? Thanks again! (EDIT) I seem to be getting random pops and sound dropping out.
  9. I decided that instead of try to muck around with someone else's DSDT I would try to compile my own. Does this look good? DSDT_1.zip
  10. Hi Jake Lo, Thanks for the advice. I removed all of the .kext's that I was trying and disabled the (4) AppleHDA patches in the Clover config.plist. "Change layout-id to 18 or 12 in Config file" I don't know how to do this. Do you have a link so that I can learn? "and also the DSDT.aml since you have it hardcoded it in, make it matches on both or just change it in DSDT" The DSDT came with the bootpack that I'm using. Should I delete it? (I did generate the SSDT.aml). "and leave it off in the Config file" Once again, do you have a link on how to do this? Thanks! zog
  11. Bit of an update. I downloaded VoodooHDA.kext-292 and copied it to L/E and I got sound from my laptop speakers. However, when I plug in external speakers, I get hissing and popping. Any suggestion? Thanks! zog
  12. Hey everyone! I've been banging my head for the last two days over the audio on my M4800. I've tried every bootpack that I could find and every version of AppleHDA.kext, AppleALC.kext, VoodooHDA.kext and anything else that I can find. Nothing shows in System Information. I'm attaching my EFI, debug and IORegistryExplorer output's. debug_17029.zip EFI.zip zogs_MacBook_Pro.ioreg
  13. Hi everyone! So I'm converting my final Windows machine to OS X on my Precision M4800. My system came with a AMD Firepro M5100 that I later changed to a Nvidia Quadro K1100m, (some software that I was using at the time didn't like AMD). My question is which card play's nicer on a Hackintosh, the Nvidia or AMD? Thanks! zog (EDIT) BTW, I'm running Mojave 10.14.6
  14. $35 USD?!?! OUCH! I've been Googling and found these: https://www.amazon.com/Glowing-Fluorescent-Lettering-Keyboard-Laminated/dp/B015EC94V4/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=English+US+Keyboard+Stickers+mac&qid=1569263725&s=office-products&sr=1-5 https://www.4keyboard.com/english-keyboard-stickers/161-english-apple-english-non-transparent-keyboard-sticker.html https://www.ebay.com/itm/MAC-ENGLISH-US-KEYBOARD-STICKER-LARGE-BOLD-LETTERS-BLACK-FOR-COMPUTER-LAPTOP/172214028794?epid=1972286387&hash=item2818c189fa:g:DQ0AAOSwEOxXP4gs (sigh) My 14 year old daughter wants a MacBook, not a Hackintosh. I'm working on convincing her otherwise! (No way in Hades am I paying for a MacBook!) I'll order some of these : https://www.4keyboard.com/french-keyboard-stickers/164-french-apple-french-canadian-english-non-transparent-keyboard-sticker.html and post up my results.
  15. Hi everyone! Does anyone know where I get get some Mac keyboard stickers? I.e. cover the Ctl/Windows/Alt with Ctl/Option/Command. I had a link from somewhere but lost it. Thanks! zog
