  1. Thanks, I got it working now.
  2. @Jake Lo I have just installed alc fix myself, but it's not working. 1. I disabled SIP from recovery mode 2. Run the install.sh script 3. Enabled SIP again When I run 'sudo launchctl list | grep ALC', I get the following result - -9 good.win.ALCPlugFix Any idea what I'm missing? Btw. since I have Apple Secure Boot enabled through OC, I had to boot into recovery from my USB installer. Do you think that my cause the issue?
  3. Hi guys, sorry it took me that long to reply, please find attached my final OC EFI folder. Requiered modifications: - Update PlatformInfo in config.plist - Ensure you have the correct kext for Wifi (I have a DW1550) - Apply combo jack fix as mentioned here by Jake Lo OC_0.6.6_Release.zip
  4. Update: I was able to boot the installer after replacing all SSDTs in the ACPI folder with the once I currently use with clover, and adding the corresponding patches to the config file. In the next step, I removed the EHCI-01/-02 SSDTs/patches as well as the EC patch and added the SSDT-EHCx_off.aml. This aligns more with the OpenCore guide and the booting process went past my initial issue. However, I think I’ll need the EHCx SSDTs and patches to get the build in camera and Bluetooth working. I’ll complete the installation over the weekend and post my EFI that aligns as close as possible to the OpenCore guide. -------------------------------------- UPDATE: You can find the final EFI folder here
  5. Hi, I've create a USB installer as per Dortania's OpenCore Install Guide, but I'm unable to boot into the installer. The last line of the OpenCore log reads 30:552 00:027 AAPL: #[EB|LOG:EXITBS:START] 2020-11-24T08:38:41 According to the troubleshooting section, this issue might be caused by CFG Lock, which I did set to 0. I've tried the EFI folder from the post E6440 Big Sur just out of curiosity, and the loading process went passed the stage I'm stuck at. However, the EFI folder from the linked post contains a patched DSDT.aml and doesn't align with the OpenCore guide. Hence, I would prefer to have a clean EFI folder. I have attached my EFI folder which I'm having issues with to boot the installer. Product information properties in config.plist were removed for obvious reasons. Thank you in advance. EFI.zip
  6. Oh, ok. Finally, I have installed HS on my E6440 after Jake Lo's hint about the generic bootpack. I guess I mixed up the meaning of "Sierra bootpack only" on step 2 when I created the usb installer. Thanks for your help guys
  7. Yes, either HFSPlus.efi or remove the entry VBoxHfs from disable drivers section in config.plist. @Harve: Why do you prefer MBR over GUID?
  8. No, I always used GUID formatted usb installer, but will try MBR later.
  9. Hi, I'm trying to install HS with Clover on my E6440 in UEFI mode. I followed Jake Lo's installation guide and created a usb installer using the appropriate Sierra bootpack from the same thread. I also applied the changes for HS to config.plist. I can boot from the installer, but clovers boot screen doesn't show any devices. Any advice?
  10. Ok, I got my DW1550 and AirDrop works like a charm. The next step will be to check out handoff.
  11. Thanks, I purchased one at eBay. I will report back.
  12. Damn, forgot to write that I also use a mSata SSD in the full size slot. So still looking for a half size card.
  13. Hi, does anyone have a half size pci wifi/bluetooth card which allows AirDrop between hack and iOS devices? I need for my E6440, but I'm not sure which one to take. Unfortunately it has to be half size card, as there is no place for a full size one in the E6440. Thank you in advance
  14. Finally I found some time to apply your suggestions and do some long term test. The result is, I still get different outputs from "AppleIntelInfo.kext", but I guess it comes from "DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext" in addition with plugged in/unplugged power cord. Further the weird output in the hwMonitor diagram comes from still loaded "AppleIntelInfo.kext". After unloading the kext the digram showed proper frequencies, but now the cpu operates almost at the max non turbo frequency which is 2.9GHz for my cpu. Again, thank you for your help.
