  1. Hi @Jake Lo does this setup_var change need to be done by the BIOS patch method as shown here: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/9179-dell-latitude-e7x70-installation-guides-uefi-only-clover-and-opencore/ or is there an alternative approach with WEG ?
  2. This is done from the BIOS ? If it was working with Clover with the current settings wouldn't the same be working with OC ? I can boot the machine and connect with VNC so it doesn't seem to crash on boot up now. But just no frame buffer available.
  3. OK - my mistake on the last screenshot. Too many config.plist files floating about. The OC Config LHS, Clover Config RHS Below: So can confirm: AAPL,ig-platform-id =05003B19 device-id = 1B190000 OK - I set back to MacBookPro13,1 since this is what I have been using with Clover and also set the boot flag - wegnoegpu since this has also been in use. Are all boot flags from Clover transferable to OC ? Here's what I know see when I try to boot: Error shown: Lilu patcher: @ failed t
  4. That's what I've tried already. See below LHS: CLOVER, RHS: OC config.plist When booting with the above the boot stalls on the following: Initializing... Probing... As far as I can tell the error is something down the lines of: Unexpected payload for message 9, dataLen 0 Error storing post message 9
  5. Here it is @Jake Lo and thanks ! config CLOVER.plist.zip
  6. Thanks @Jake Lo back and running and trying to get Graphics acceleration working... Any advise on how to do this ? Basically I have everything working perfectly in Clover (Left side) and I have tried to move the Device Properties across in to OC (Right Side) as shown below. EDIT: Here is the boot screen when trying with the iGPU properties set as per right hand side above.
  7. Right, I don’t reckon 5300 was an accurate recollection. Will swap the SSD’s back and re-measure again on Catalina. Latest, is also around 3800 on Big Sur. If I move all the drive properties for IGPU across from Clover to OC should I be able to get the graphics initialized correctly ?The reason I ask is that I tried this and the machine does not boot anymore. I tried booting again with the USB stick that I installed with bit this doesn’t work anymore - I suspect I need to clears the NVRAM but the OC USB doesn’t have this option in the menu. Any suggestions ?
  8. OK - I am not sure what occurred but I got past this error now and managed to install Big Sur 11.3 :) It's a little slow at the moment - Geekbench scores are around 3800 where as on my Catalina install I was getting around 5300 iirc. Any hints on how to improve ?
  9. Hi Jake Lo and Herve - Thanks for effort in getting the OpenCore EFI bundle prepared. As you know I have been using Clover for some time now but wanted to finally move to Big Sur so thought it time to adopt to OC! I have tried the bundle to varying degrees of success. If I try to boot in to my existing Catalina installation then it mostly goes well. Some display resolution problems (no scaling from 4K screen) but everything else seems to be working ok or just might need some minor tweaks. However when I try to run the installer I am seeing a bunch of ACPI Ex
  10. Sounds like a good feature - try to remember that for next time. . Thanks for the help @Jake Lo + @Hervé Managed to now roll back to Clover r5122 and running normally again. Quick question - is the Big Sur upgrade working ? Previous version upgrades have been smooth but wouldn't mind knowing up front if this is advised or not. Thanks
  11. SSDT-EC.aml appears to get past the above. Got back to login screen albeit with no mouse or keyboard control yet. Must have taken out too many kexts. Wish I was better at this...
  12. Cutting some of the kexts to what I think might be the essentials to get going: AppleALC.kext IntelMausi.kext Lilu.kext NoTouchID.kext USBInjectAll.kext VirtualSMC.kext WhateverGreen.kext SMCBatteryManager.kext SMCProcessor.kext I have attached @Hervé - this ones based on the Clover release you posted earlier with config.plist, acpi and kexts added. EFI.zip
  13. I noticed that the config.plist from the link above and the one that gets loaded has a few fields that don’t have an actual real serial number: Could this be causing the boot fail?
  14. Adding -s for single user mode to the clover options gets to the same point as before and no further
