  1. Looking at your posted IOReg, I see that your SD card reader is a PCIe Realtek RTS525A (10ec:525a). As such, I expect the new beta driver recently offered by Firewolf to bring life to yours. Just try and inject it. On the brightness keys front, I would not expect much out of that kext mentioned at Dortania. To me, the existing solution of combined ACPI + SSDT patches is spread wide enough to pretty much vouch for it across the Latitude generations. I would therefore also expect that applying the documented method should work on your 7310 laptop too. But post your extracted BIOS tab
  2. There's renewed interest on the development of drivers for Realtek PCIe card readers and it's fantastics news! Last year, we reported here on Cholonam's work that, building on the original work of developper Sinetek, gave a new life to some of our Realtek card readers. It was pretty good stuff and allowed many of us with, say RTS525a card readers, to finally be able to use SD cards under macOS. Performance was however pretty limited. This year, Austere.J (aka Firewolf) has embarked on writing a brand new driver and, my God, is it good! The driver is under active develop
  3. I understand that ALC3236 codec is ALC233; look that up in the AppleALC wiki and experiment with the various layout ids listed. https://github.com/acidanthera/applealc/wiki/supported-codecs Re: AR9565 wireless, those were never natively supported and required a specifically re-written Atheros40 kext. Then, performance was not great. Knowing that you'll probably have trouble getting this card to work under Big Sur, it'd be far better to replace it with a fully supported M.2 model. You can check these out in our wireless cards inventories and our M.2 wireless cards inventory, al
  4. You're using an EFI made for a different model that may not have the exact same hardware specs as your own particular laptop. You need to identify your audio codec and specify the make & model of your wireless card. Don't hesitate to open up your laptop to look at the label of the wireless card. Failing that, post an IOReg extract saved from IORegistryExplorer app.
  5. OCC app gets aligned with versions of OpenCore. So, you must have a mismatch between the version of OCC you used and the OpenCore version you've installed. In most case, these warnings can be ignored but OpenCore can be subject to updates that completely modify the way parameters are defined. In rare cases, you could find yourself in a situation where a config file updated through OCC would no longer allow you to boot OpenCore due to changes in the config that aren't supported by an older version of OpenCore. For instance a config updated by OCC for OC 0.7.0 when installed OpenCore version is,
  6. Usually, I turn TPM & USB Wake Support off.
  7. Glad to see that you got graphics acceleration after entering the suggested properties in the correct reverse byte order.
  8. It's 1st beta and Bluetooth is buggy, even for real Macs. So guys, just be patient.
  9. What else? Please note, that as far as I can see, trying to enable HDMI2.0 on hardware limited to HDMI1.4 is most likely useless...
  10. I would not compare the settings of 8th gen Kaby Lake Refresh 7490 with those of 10th gen Comet Lake 7310. By all means, do post the list of setting you use because we don't necessarily know what the 7310 offers (I certainly don't). After you make changes to your OC config, you clear NVRAM, right? Which version of Catalina are you trying to install by the way? From memory, Comet Lake and Ice Lake are only supported from 10.15.3 or 10.15.4. Check it out in the Software section.
  11. Your E5550 is a Broadwell laptop. Given that the tool you've opted for does not seem to support Broadwell mobile platforms (it appears it skips those and only supports High-End Desktop (HEDT) 140W 6/8/10-core Broadwell-E platforms which the E5550 sure ain't based on). I would therefore recommend that you leave that tool aside for the time being and follow the Dortania OpenCore documentation to build your setup. You may use OpenCore Configurator app (aka OCC) to create your OC config. I also invite you to read the existing guides for E5x50 models published in our Guides section and
  12. i7-10610U is Comet Lake (not Whiskey Lake) so I don't think you're injecting the correct properties for your CML iGPU fake id and FB layout; according to the WEG user manual and the Dortania OC documentation, you should be using: ig-platform-id 0x3E9B0000 device-id 0x3E9B
  13. OCLP 0.1.7 patcher has been released. It brings support for HD4000 graphics in Monterey beta1. https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/macos-12-monterey-on-unsupported-macs-thread.2299557/post-30014550 Make sure to enable automatic login quickly after 1st boot setup to avoid subsequent problems with the Windows server initialization and consequential inability to boot to desktop. Tested on my Latitude E6230 on an external USB disk. Runs at much higher CPU speeds than before and therefore very hot at times. Will probably have to experiment with CPUFriend on that front.
  14. Please post your system's specs in signature. Also, please refrain from using quotes to post replies. As per our published rules which I invite you to read, please use the Reply box at bottom of each page. Try SKL layout 0x1916 instead of 0x191b + SMBIOS MBP13,1 instead of MBP13,3 to see if it makes any difference.
  15. These tools are made for real Macs so the process does not fully apply to Hackintoshes on which you would boot with a usual bootloader setup and then apply the patcher to your build.
  16. Some people reported slow boot with beta1. 1st workaround is to enable automatic login. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/348065-pre-release-macos-monterey/page/10/?tab=comments#comment-2760529 https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/348065-pre-release-macos-monterey/page/11/?tab=comments#comment-2760595 2nd workaround is to replace your account's picture by a Memoji. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/348065-pre-release-macos-monterey/?do=findComment&comment=2760673
  17. Enable automatic login and report.
  18. Impossible to provide any form of assistance in such conditions... Please post your system's hardware specs. Specify the target macOS version (eg: Catalina 10.15.7, Big Sur 11.4) Specifiy the bootloader you're using and its version Post a zipped copy of your EFI folder with ACPI & kexts folder + config file Maybe you're re-using an EFI folder grabbed somewhere that includes settings for Intel wireless card; maybe you don't have such a card. Rule #1: know your hardware before you start anything.
  19. No, it's the opposite: people who reported long boot had automatic login disabled and boot time got reduced by about 30s by enabling automatic login. I sure have it enabled. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/348065-pre-release-macos-monterey/?do=findComment&comment=2760529 https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/348065-pre-release-macos-monterey/?do=findComment&comment=2760595 Did you try to switch FB layout as suggested ? Also, the empty SMBIOS fields in your posted config, that was deliberate, right? Please add your system's s
  20. My findings below. ACPI patch: you rename ECDV to EC when you actually inject the SSDT-EC-USBX table; renaming is therefore unnecessary and should be disabled/removed. you inject SSDT-HPET table yet not applying any renaming for HPET or its _CSR method. You would most likely need that for SSDT-HPET to have any effect. Device Properties: you inject SKL framebuffer layout 0x191b0000 for HD530. I would have expected 0x19160000. Are you getting graphics acceleration ? NVRAM: you'll probably have to add -lulibetaall and -wegbeta boot args to avo
  21. @PMD no such issue at all; in fact no issue whatsoever. Using Fenvi BCM94360NG which is fully supported OOB.
  22. Obviously you open up your OC config with whatever tool you normally use (ProperTree, OpenCoreConfigurator, Xcode, etc.) and you disable the currently enabled XhciPortLimit parameter. It's as simple as that.
  23. The only strange/incorrect things I notice are that: you inject CpuTscSync kext for your CPU. You failed to provide details specs about it, so can't say more but I doubt you'd need this on a dual or quad core processor. I'd disable this. you use MBA8,1 SMBIOS which, imo, is entirely inappropriate for your Broadwell laptop given that it's an Amber Lake Y/UHD617 Mac; you should have been using MBA7,x SMBIOS knowing that MBP12,1 is effectively the norm for Broadwell/HD5x00-6x00 laptops. Also, given that you appear to run on the Intel HD5x00 iGPU, why don't you disable the nVid
  24. Make sure to Reset NVRAM each time you make a change to your OC config. If all that you did was add/delete the afore mentioned boot args, no reason why you would not boot back into Big Sur.
