  1. @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?
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Yes, either HFSPlus.efi or remove the entry VBoxHfs from disable drivers section in config.plist. @Harve: Why do you prefer MBR over GUID?
  7. No, I always used GUID formatted usb installer, but will try MBR later.
  8. 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?
  9. Ok, I got my DW1550 and AirDrop works like a charm. The next step will be to check out handoff.
  10. Thanks, I purchased one at eBay. I will report back.
  11. Damn, forgot to write that I also use a mSata SSD in the full size slot. So still looking for a half size card.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. Thanks for your suggestions, I will try them the next days and report back. @Jake Jo: I didn't know that it's just cosmetic.
  15. I checked my config.plist, but the field are all empty. config.plist.zip
  16. Thanks, I will check erroneous bus/cpu speeds later. Even with the existing patched DSDT I had the same issue about no pci devices listed in system information.
  17. Hi, I have extracted the DSDT with the linux method (acpidump, etc.) and fixed the initial error only so the DSDT compiles. But it seems something went wrong as I have noticed some strange issues. 1. Systeminformation doesn't show any PCI device 2. I got two different outputs from AppleIntelInfo for my fresh generated SSDT using Alpha Pikers script. Also HWMonitor shows unrealistic frequencies (29.60GHz, 2147.48THz). Does anyone have an advice? Thanks in advance. Screenshots, AppleIntelInfo and SSDT.zip
  18. Ok, so AirDrop depends also on a correct wifi card. I will try to rebrand my DW1510 first and report here if that helps.
  19. Oh, didn't notice your update. You told me in a pn that you have AirDrop working on your E6230. Could you please tell which BT card is installed in there? Searching for BCM94360CD I find only cards like the following one, but I am not sure if this is the right one and if it will fit into my E6430.
  20. Stupid me, thank you for your advice - HDMI sound output works. Any advice for the others issues from post #7?
  21. Hi Hervé, correct audio on the machine is working. I am using AppleHDA_IDT.kext in /L/E and patched in config.plist.
  22. I edited my post (#7) and added a zip of my EFI folder. Maybe it helps.
  23. Thanks for your help guys. 1. no HDMI audio -> the issue is that there is no audio output after plugging in the cable. 2. Bluetooth -> Fixed it by adding the patch into Fakesmc.kext, but I can not link my iPhone 5S with my E6430. Further AirDrop doesn't work. Would you recommend the patch within fakesmc.kext or using kexts from Rehabman? 3. Caps lock issue -> Two hits are required to deactivate caps lock. I have added a zip of my EFI folder. The DSDT is for El Capitan from Jake Lo's guide, the config.plist contains mixed patches from different files for 1600x900 models. used_EFI.zip
