  1. @Jake Lo It doesn't even let me get to that part. The only option after the read-write popup issue, is to close the installer. I tried to make a fresh install using opencore, spent a lot of time and it isn't working :bbbb not even sure why. when booting it loads to barely 95%+ and stuck there :c
  2. I had a problem where my disks didn't show up in clover anymore after updating to 10.15.4. at first it did work, but them it stopped. So I went back to Linux for a while, really short time Now Iwant to install it again. I made a new bootable usb with the new image 10.15.4, got my old uefi folder, changed the kexts to the ones Jake provided in this thread, updated lilu and weg, but no luck. I can boot to the USB, select the install disk but I get stuck at the apple logo without any loading bar or so. Any ideas why? Edit: I may know what is causing the issue. The clover in my efi folder is 5093, the right one should be 5107... How can I update the clover for my bootable USB? I tried installing clover from a real macbook, but I cannot open it because it says something about read-write permissions. It's probably trying to read/write the real macbook efi, which I definitely don't want it to. How can I properly update the clover installation and keeping the config that used to work for me? thanks edit2: is it a good call for me to try make it work with opencore?
  3. @Hervé I checked for wake options in BIOS, they are all disabled. I'll clean my ssd conectors to check if helps 3 min ago I just got another panic, which froze my entire system. That's the second since I've installed macOS. I don't have a lot of ideas why, but here's the "report for apple" https://pastebin.com/HXRWEXNH edit: Nop, cleaning the conectors didn't resolve the issue. I'll try to reinstall clover whenever I have time, I think it's a problem with it somehow. These kind of things usually happened to me while testing other/wrong efi folders. The only weird thing is that they took that long to start happening, and matched me messing around with kext..
  4. well, I did something that's making my e5440 kinda crazy when booting, often it says that there's no bootable device. Or, boot to clover and there are no disks, OR, go to clover, boot to disk but got a prohibit sign, OR, boots normally. Usually takes 5 tries to get it working, some of them making it boot from "Mac OS X" via one-time boot menu, but it doesn't fix all the time. What I did was: In /Library, there were the Extensions folder and a folder called Extensios or something like that, when I opened it, it had a Content folder, just like a .kext file. Well, I assumed I made something wrong in the past and mistyped that, so I deleted the folder. Copied the CodecCommander.kext and DisableTurboBoostBattery_2.3.kext from my efi/clover.../copytole, just to make sure I didn't made a mistake with them, considering that extensios folder.. Googled how to repair the kext permissions from the cmdline, found out: sudo chmod -Rf 755 /S*/L*/E* sudo chmod -Rf 755 /L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /S*/L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /L*/E* sudo kextcache -i / Did those commands, but after that, I found one of from Herve here in the forum that was sudo chmod -Rf 755 /S*/L*/E* sudo chmod -Rf 755 /L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /S*/L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /L*/E* sudo touch -f /S*/L*/E* sudo touch -f /L*/E* sudo kextcache -Boot -U / Well, I did them as well, just to make sure Now my computer is crazy Any ideas why and/or what can I do to fix it? Also, I did those hibernation commands that @Jake Lo recommended above
  5. Can I use the same config file as @CheBoludos did for his audio? Also, where do I put that? Anyway, I've done the ioregistry thing, follows the result attached ioreg.zip
  6. @Jake Lo I think I've used those commands already, but I did it again and will come back with more details soon. I tested my headphones just to check if I had no problems like our friend @CheBoludos, it worked fine in one youtube video. Then I opened another tab and I got not more sound hahaha I'll try to catch up with what you've done che, any doubts I will come back here Also, I'm buying a dw1510 wifi card, because dw1550 was so expensive for me :c Do you guys think it will be alright for me?
  7. Any idea why mines is randomly waking up? (that wake up via ethernet is disabled in bios) Also, whenever properly waking up, the black screen with the white apple and loading bar appears, like it's was rebooting or so
  8. I'm looking for buying a 1/2 mini pci-e card for my e5440 laptop. I'm also looking to buying more of one to re-sell here in Brazil, because we don't have good options in here. I'm using Catalina and one of the requirements is that it works in Catalina I was looking to dw1510, which is really cheap. I know it doesn't have ac wifi, nor 4.1 Bluetooth, but how fast is it's wifi? Is there any better cheap wifi chips compared to the dw1510? Also, one of the most important question, does those wifi chips works on any branded laptop or they are somehow incompatible?
  9. I god a kernel panic while using anaconda and stuff here is the "problem log" any ideas why? https://pastebin.com/wpCMieYT everything just frozen, had to reset it by pressing down the power key after this, while trying to boot again, the apple loading screen were stuck, had to reboot with the power button again.
  10. @Jake Lo The field was an integer value and was 1, so I changed to 4 and it worked fine. Then I've changed to 2 and it's working fine as well
  11. @Jake Lo Holy molly, you're a god! Thank you so freaking much for your support man. Thanks to you I've a complete working E5440 w/ mac OS now. jezzzzzzzzzz Is there anything I can do to help other users or even yourself? About the wifi's drivers, the ones we use today (broadcom, etc) are all provided by the owner and Intel don't make them for macOS or the drivers are developed "in-house" by the community and Intel has a major issue that makes it impossible to make a driver for? If the first one is true(just happens that intel don't make them to macos), I can maybe give a shot and have a side project were I can try to develop one. I mean, I never exactly did a true/real driver, but I have the knowledge in OS/kernel development. I have done some kind of driver to a virtualized machine where I had to deal with the packets comming in, so I was responsible for creating and managing the systems interrupts caused by it, as well as deal with the data almost in real time otherwise the packet was lost. It's just a matter of understanding a little bit more about the protocols(i'll have a class this semester and the next for this), the wifi hardware itself and about drivers in macOS, which should be something really close to linux, so I'm basically at home haha If things ain't simple like that and someone already tried and failed, please let me know ahead, so I check the failure docs and if there's no real way, I won't even waste my time Again, thank you very much
  12. @Jake Lo I probably deleted things I shouldn't. So, I've reinstalled again with the old pendrive / uefi, then I've installed clover into the ssd as by the tutorial already mentioned, then I've replaced the clover folders with the ones you gave me. I've copied the kexts inside the copytoLE folder to my /Library/Extension and re-did the permissions thing Almost everything looks to be working fine, except for the trackpad. I mean, it's working, but I need to push my finger kinda hard for it to recognize I'm touching it. Even gestures are working. Any way to decrese this "force" required for it to work? One additional thing is whenever the computer is "sleeping" it turns back on from time to time, I was sleeping and this thing kept awakening during the night and I don't think that was a ghost (i mean, I hope isn't Steve Jobs mad at me, may he rest in peace)
  13. @Jake Lo Huh, did it and things actually got worst Screen brightness doens't work anymore, external monitor doens't as well, the image is all laggy/choppy and it's freaking slow hahaha
  14. @Jake Lo Thnaks, I'm replacing it in my efi folder and will test it soon. Just one question: I may have fu*** up already and I used kext wizard to install all of the previous kext present in the efi folder into my Local Extensions, should I delete them all from there and copy/install only those inside the copytoLE folder? Here's all my kexts inside the Local Extension (just the olds, didnt copied the new ones inside your copytoLE folder yet) (all kexts in Local Extensions ) after reboot and still without copying the files to LE -screen brightness is working :DDD - external monitor is working via hdmi (didn't tested that before) didn't noticed anything other than that
  15. @gengstapo Yes, its made via createinstallmedia. About the kexts, I'm not sure how new they are, I dont even know if I'm using exactly the ones I should. I've just followed some internet tutorial. But it took me much further then the previous time I've tried to do it @Jake Lo I'm using the e5440_10.15_high_res_intel.zip (uefi/clover folder) found elsewhere [NB: link removed].
