  1. Can't seem to boot hackintosh internal drive from a USB external clover, which is odd. Have copied the xxxX64.efi files from 5122 onto the MacOS installer drive, and will copy them into place on the internal drive EFI manually. See if that works.....
  2. Installed latest Cover on my hackintosh E7450 Catalina, to update to latest OS update. Downloaded r5123. Has bricked my hackintosh. plist error referencing 'Quirks', which I've never heard of. Tried to copy the 'Quirks' dict section from the 5123 sample plist file, but that hasn't helped. Any suggestions on how to install r5122 or similar onto my existing hackintosh, given I can't boot into it? I can boot a MacOS installer USB, but from there I have no idea how to kick off a Clover install. Thx.
  3. Hey, thanks - that worked a treat! Good stuff. I really must get around to updating the E7470 to a newer OS - or may just wait for the fun of trying Big Sur at some point.
  4. Have tried multiple cables and monitors, before that's suggested
  5. Have looked at lots of guide, forum posts, and solutions, none of which have worked for me so far. I have a perfectly working E7470 on High Sierra. BT, Wifi, Sound, brightness etc all fine. But connecting an external display via miniDP or HDMI has no effect. Doesnt work at boot time, after standby, or at any other time. Debug files attached. This isn't a killer problem for me, as I generally use the laptop as a laptop, but it would be nice to know I could use a display if I needed to. Thanks for any help in advance. debug_20954.zip
  6. Thanks Jake - downloaded as suggested, NOW WORKING. Amazeballs. cheers.
  7. cool. i had those 3, but had 'repo' in clover, not 'data'. switching out appears to make no difference. in /EFI/clover/kexts/other i have:- BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext BrcmFirmwareData.kext BrcmPatchRAM3.kext in /L/E, I have nothing any other ideas? I can turn the BT on and off now, but it cannot see any devices.
  8. debug_16132 2.zip Hi folks, have installed Catalina onto E7450 using EFIs from this site. Have used latest clover and updated key kexts, which facilitated upgrade to 10.15.4, which is all fine. Wifi shows up and works Bluetooth shows up on System Preferences and in top menu bar, but does not connect. Was working fine in High Sierra and Mojave, so my chip is definitely Wifi & BT. Debug attached. Anyone able to help? thx Mark
  9. CodecComander.kext already present. Did repair and rebuild anyway (but have been doing that regularly!). Rebooted, and it works. Odd. I wonder if it's standby related?
  10. OK, so I've just found this and it worked - I have WIFI! https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11138-inventory-of-supportedunsupported-wireless-cards-2-sierra-catalina/?tab=comments#comment-86614 Need help with bluetooth! Will keep digging So now, how do I double check that I don't have anything slightly off? I guess I'm asking how I know if I'm "done"??? Or is it just a case of looking out for stuff that looks odd?
  11. After going back to basic kexts from core EFI and 7440 bundle, and removing nearly all kexts from /L*/E*, I'm in again. Wifi is DW1510, working fine in High Sierra.
  12. Can't mount EFI in safeboot - Clover doesn't appear to do anything when I click Open, and "mount_msdos" in Terminal doesn't work for me. Booting into USB installer is horrid, and I've no idea what I'm doing when I get there!
  13. Having installed chrome, graphics look a bit dodgy, at least in Safe mode. Still stuck unable to do a normal boot.
  14. Hi, Catalina installed via USB stick with Clover. Generic and E7240/7440 EFI taken from this site. Sound, screen and LAN working. No Wireless or Bluetooth. Debug attached. Have tried manually adding a few kexts, and now it won't boot unless I go to safe mode. Any ideas on getting access back (have been booting from USB installer and deleting kexts, but can't find the issue!)? Also what am I missing for Wifi/BT? Cheers debug_15225.zip
  15. SOLVED. Bluetooth sorted with files from bootpack in guide, into /L*/E* with permissions and rebuild.
  16. Thanks so much Jake. As you said I've taken a dump of the EFI package, and started from scratch. This time it's worked a treat, and it's so easy just to drop the EFI folder onto both the USB drive and to the target install drive after install. Just bluetooth to sort....
  17. No joy I'm afraid, still much the same as when I started. EFI partition cleaned up as per instructions. I just mount the EFI, make changes, then reboot right? I only need to do permissions and kext cache rebuild if I touch /L*/E* or /S*/L*/E*? debug_18804.zip
  18. Thanks done, except can’t find a nvram.plist?
  19. Many thanks fella. I think I've followed those instructions to the letter. I get the same error message during boot, and graphics seem no better - still corrupt in places. Still no sound, keyboard, trackpad or LAN. F2 and F4 clover dumps done and debug recreated. debug_26782.zip
  20. with IO dump which failed first time debug_17843.zip
