  1. Card: T77H649, #00JT494, 106B:075A Hackintosh: Desktop (Asus z170i pro gaming) macOS versions: Mojave , Catalina Patch: compatible pci14e4,4353 Kexts: BrcmAirportFixup.kext BlueTooth: (BrcmFirmwareData.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext) for Catalina - modified by @headkaze Boot parameter: No Tricks: No
  2. I am still using after mask without any issue at all for the third day Check your mask again , maybe it moved from its place when you insert it .. And you know what !!! I believe I've masked 3 pins in two sides , not 3 front 2 back as thread suggest , I realized that after I read the post one more time , but thought everything is ok ..
  3. Thank you very much @DalianSky It works Thanks to @Hervé as well for your amazing guide as usual ; Good News I have masked the 3 pins in the card it was big challenge to mask such a very tiny pins but I did it and now everything works nicely, no more hangs , freeze or CPU huge usage without reason Yes , It works and I am using it for more than an hour now and I notice nothing wrong at all . Thanks to @Naidis and his amazing post with photos here Problem Solved Page 3 post #6
  4. Thank you @Hervé This card works great in desktop with pci14e4,43a3 without problems at all , but when I swapped it to use in laptop I've used pci14e4,4353 and I got this hang and cpu usage I gave up , this card is not for laptop Have a good night
  5. @HervéPlease point me to the mistake ; I saw your thread 10 times now to figure it out
  6. pci14e4,4353 !!! I did that The result are the same , freeze , hang , CPU huge usage pci14e4,4353 = pci14e4,43a3 in my case no difference
  7. Please give me a clear hope , Two days now with hundreds of try and fails I didn't success Do you mean ' compitable should be pci14e4,4353 ? I did that and was the same result Or maybe the AAPL slot name is wrong ? Please tell me
  8. Hello guys I need your help please , I have DW1820a OVW3T3 with Subsystem ID 0x0021 I get wifi and Bluetooth works successfully after following @Hervé thread But unfortunately my system freeze and huge processor usage only after 10 minutes of using As @Hervé mentioned regards 0x0021 I should not have any issues with this card Please have a look on my screen shot Laptop is Lenovo P50 with latest Mojave FYI : I am using this card on a desktop build running mojave as well without any problems I am getting KP on laptop without boot arg brcmfx-driver=1 and without AirportBrcmFixup.kext For me both pci14e4,43a3 and pci14e4,4353 works I've tried IO80211Family.kext method from old os 10.10 and it works great with no system freeze or hang at all but 2 or 3 KP if system reboots Thank you
  9. eSata port work fine for me , please configure plist USBPorts.kexts according to your smbios Second , connect what ever you want to eSata port before OS start
  10. 30-06-2019 Update Attached Files in First Post ( Google Drive Link 50 MB ) This instructions is for Dell Precision m6800 (and similar Dell Precision Models - Experimental) Before you start Please note that : I am using Dell Precision m6800 with these SPEC : Intel I7 4900MQ 2.8 Mhz - Intel HD Haswell 4600 32 GB RAM Nvidia Quadro K3100M 4GB Samsung EVO 250 GB Dell DW 1560 WiFi and BT Adapter BIOS A25 ( Latest 30 Oct 2018 ) This Process has been successfully tested with High Sierra and Mojave 10.14.5 Both IGPU and DGPU are Working Together Correctly like a Desktop No Bios reset issue when reboot , Works with Dual Boot ( Win + OSX ) ******* Step By Step ******** 1- Reset BIOS to its default and Update it to A25 2- Modify BIOS setting ( Press F12 to see Options ) * Advanced Boot Options = Enable Legacy * Integrated NIC = Enable * Parallel Ports = AT * Serial Ports = Disabled ( If you are using Dock station then Enable it - Expermental ) * Sata Operation = AHCI * Drivers = Check all * Switchable Graphics = Enable Switchable Graphics * Secure Boot = Disabled * Virtualization = Disable 3- Create your OSX Installation USB ( Search How , its not my Topic ) * Then I recommend to install Clover bootloader to create EFI Folder on your USB (UEFI Method) 4- Once you create OSX Installation USB ; mount USB EFI PARTITION and DELETE EFI Folder 5- Decompress my attached files 6- On my attched files ; Find ( install Folder ) Copy EFI Folder and Paste it in your USB EFI PARTITION ( instead of deleted one in step 4) 7- Now you are ready to Install OSX for Dell Precision M6800 * Power On your PC * Press F12 to see Options * Select BOOT from ( your USB ) * Start Installation Process ( it will reboot several time during installation so press F12 each time to boot from your USB ) - search Youtube videos to see the installation process 8- Once installation done and you reach your OSX desktop *Copy my attached files to your Desktop and Eject USB * Mount your OSX Drive EFI PARTITION and delete ( EFI Folder if existed ) * On my attached files Find ( Boot Disk EFI ); copy EFI Folder and Paste it in your Drive EFI PARTITION instead of deleted one "same as step 6" 9- Now the last step ( very Important ) - on my attached files Find (L/E Folder) - use any method or tool to install ALL KEXTS to Library/Extensions - Rebuild kextcache and repair permissions - I recommend using Hackintool by @headkaze to install kexts and rebuild kextcache 10- Reboot your PC and check everything is working correctly ( Audio , Bluetooth , WiFi , Internet , USB 3 , Trim ... ) IF you are using Mojave ; No Cuda drivers available till now but Nvidia GPU works with 4k External Monitor via DP Fully Accelerated Qi-Ci , also you can Disable Bios graphics Optimus to disable Intel HD GPU and use only Nvidia GPU - The same thing with High Sierra except that Nvidia Web Drivers are available and Cuda are ready - I use this PC all time with 4k external monitor while laptop led screen is closen using external mouse and Keyboard for Graphic design and video editing; H264 with hardware acceleration is working but no H265 hardware acceleration I think due to Haswell limitation - also I've found useful app to disable CPU turbo boost . I use it sometimes to reduce CPU temp ( search google ) Note : in case you have booting troubles ; Try to change SMBIOS in config.plist to diffrent model as MacbookPro 10.1, MacBookPro 11.2, MacBookPro 13.1 also you can try iMac 14.2 ( works nicely with me I don't know why ) Little Tweak for CPU and RAM : go to CPU section in config.plist using clover configurator and add values to this sections according to your CPU frequency (Be careful) For example: - Add 2800 to "frequency mhz" if your CPU base is 2.8 mhz ( 2700 if 2.7 and 2100 if 2.1 , ...) - Add 99790 to "Bus speed khz" - Add 47 to "TDP" ( Look intel CPU spec page for your model to know more info about your CPU and TDP value for your CPU ) For example in my case https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/75131/intel-core-i7-4900mq-processor-8m-cache-up-to-3-80-ghz.html GPU Power Management: Delete my dAGPM.kext from clover/Kexts/Others and make your own Kext according to your SMBios ID to get the correct power management There is a tool developed by @pavo to generate your Kext and another method by @toleda search forum and google to know more about that Disable Nvidia GPU: If you want to disable dGPU and use only Intel HD 4600 drop SSDT-4600.aml to clover/ACPI/Patched . But in this case no external monitor will be working only internal Disable Intel HD GPU : If you like to use only Nvidia GPU so disable Optimus Graphics in Bios and you can use internal and external monitor USB 3 Ports Fixes : Please Modify The Info.Plist inside USBPorts.Kext to Match Your SMBIOS Find and change this text (iMac 14.2) change to (Your Model) every where in plist For Example (iMac 14.2) To (MacBookPro 11.2) Now All Your USB 3 Ports And Camera Will Work Correctly Have Fun Franckenstien 30 Jun 2019 SSDT-4600.aml.zip
  11. Thank You I've already orded one ; will feedback once I will get it installed via DSDT patch method
  12. I'd like to thank you for that amazing work How everything work so far with your modification with DW1820a ? Just I am wondering because i want purchase one right now ;
  13. This is depend on the application you use ; in most cases it will use Intel HD But if the application support Nvidia cuda will use Nvidia If you want application use 100% Nvidia so you should disable Bios Optimus Graphics option ; and install High sierra with web drivers
  14. Go to apple logo in screen corner then open about this mac then system report then grapghics/Displays What you see ?! Here you can have a look in your system report about anything you need
  15. Now you have both Intel HD and Nvidia working.. If you want only Nvidia so you should disable Optimus Graphics in Bios If you want disable Nvidia and Keep Intel HD only so instructions is provided in zip file Read please my last reply because I modified it
