  1. Great, thanks Jake, that works a treat. Micro SD card slot works too I used SSDTTime to generate the amls and followed the opencore guide to set it up. I'm not sure why I log in first, then the laptop loads the rest? I removed debug mode and -v to only have the progress bar instead of the text, but thats all still after logging in. If theres any way I can set it to boot up then log in I'd like to know! Aaron’s MacBook Pro.zip
  2. The error in the image of the login screen can be ignored, that was just me experimenting with kexts to get the keyboard going. Just added the image to illustate what happens when clicking to login as I haven't seen it before.
  3. Hello again I decided to have a go at building a Latitude 5300 (non 2-in-1) hackintosh as I couldn't see anything already for it. I'm still new to building my own from scratch so as expected, I've hit a couple of issues that I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction with. First of all, the specs: Coffee Lake 1.9Ghz Quad core CPU, 32gb ram, Intel UHD Gfx 620, dw1560 wireless. Things that currently do NOT work or I have issues with: 1. Wifi no longer working since upgrading from Catalina to Big Sur. worked fine before that. 2. Keyboard not working when logged in. When booting up, I'm presented with the login screen and can type to log in. but when actually logged in it no longer works (see next point) 3. When I click to log in, it then displays the shell text scrolling up, with the login screen in the background. 4. As noted in point 2, once I've entered my login credentials, it takes around 5 minutes to actually log in. I've attached a couple of photos that I think might be of note, not sure if the messages in them are linked. Trackpad working perfectly, very responsive. MacBook Pro.zip 5300-EFI.zip
  4. whoops, thought I replied to this. appreciate you getting back to me with that. Will give it a go if I decide to spin up the 5040 as a hackintosh again.
  5. Ok, so I remembered the server in the cupboard under the stairs is a 7040, so I tried using @Jake Lo's config and it worked first time The very last thing I'd like to ask is related to the unplugging and plugging in any video cable, I lose image but when I plug the game back in it doesn't ever come back. Is thanks config related or something I just need to live with? The reason I ask is that I have a display port switcher box and if I don't have the monitor using the correct cable, I have to hold the power button to turn it off, then turn it on again..
  6. @Jake Lo thanks, but that unfortunately didn't help, I just ended up with a blank display. @Hervé ok, I appreciate your help so far. I'll experiment and see if I have any success.
  7. Not sure why my reply didnt save, but the good news is that I can now get 1440p out of the HDMI port, whereas before it was only 1080p - the bad news is that DPort still isnt working (tried them both). Do you want me to provided updated files or no need? Thanks for your help!
  8. Ok, so: ----------------------------------------------------------------------- IGPU ----------------------------------------------------------------------- GPU Name Intel HD Graphics 530 GPU Device ID 0x19128086 Total VRAM 1536 MB Free VRAM 0 MB Quartz Extreme (QE/CI) Yes Metal Supported Yes Metal Device Name Intel(R) SKL Unknown Metal Default Device Yes Metal Low Power Yes Metal Headless No I've attached the IORegEx output, cheers!

  9. Ok, that worked, it's back to booting up again. I'll try what you suggested tonight, gotta do the family thing during the day thanks for the help.
  10. Ah didn't realise opencore worked the same as Clover in that respect. Will give it a try shortly, thanks.
  11. Yep, did have HDMI, then added the lines that jake suggested, now I can't even boot into macos. Not sure if I've done it wrong or there's a conflict but I'm not sure the best way to edit the plist now that I can't boot up.
  12. Yep, happy to do that, I just can't get into macos without a complete wipe or editing the plist first and not sure how to access it. Or is it just going to be a complete reinstall?
  13. So it should look like this?: <key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key> <data>AAASGQ==</data> <key>framebuffer-patch-enable</key> <data>AQAAAA==</data> <key>framebuffer-stolenmem</key> <data>AAAwAQ==</data> <key>framebuffer-fbmem</key> <data>AACQAA==</data> <key>enable-hdmi20</key> <true/> <data>framebuffer-portcount</data> <integer>4</integer> By doing that on boot OpenCore says "OC: Failed to parse configuration!" My internal filesysytem is apfs so I don't think I can mount it in a linux live environment (and it be writable) so is there a way I can edit the plist (or overwrite it) via shell or another way to get it to boot?
  14. also tried this with no joy: <key>enable-hdmi20</key> <data>AQAAAA==</data>
