  1. Attempted to update clover from r4369 to r4411. Using bootpack files. Clover hangs at black screen/verbose Hangs at ++++++++. No error. Reverting clover binary to previous used .efi file works correctly.
  2. Following up to my previous thread, [FIXED] E7450: issues with audio and trackpad after sleep I have some minor issues that maybe effect others : #1 Every boot it is slow. Like, I timed it and it's about a minute typically. the trim patch forces trim to be turned on, but trim doesn't work on apfs correctly. Disabled, and boot times are quite fast. #2: the system will repeatedly make an effort to go to sleep on boot Swapped FakeSMC for newer FakeSMC netkas 6.26-322-g1b20eab7.1765 from the Rehabman repo. #3: The brightness doesn't work. Pressing the brighter-darker keys on the keyboard SLIGHTLY increase and decrease brightness from the max, but they don't let you tune the full range of brightness. I tried to modify intelmaxbrightness and the backlight wouldn't come on at all after clover, so I'm guessing that there are some tweaks maybe I don't have correct which might fix this. Removed AppleBacklightInjector.kext from /L/E and installed Rehabman's IntelBacklight.kext in Clover/kext/other which fixes this issue. #4: every boot, macOS informs you that your computer was restarted because of a problem. Swapped OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi for OsxAptioFixDrv2-64.efi I see a lot of events in the system log relating to bluetooth. Errors starting advertising. And I have no working bluetooth visible.Not that I use bluetooth, I just wonder if it could be part of the problem. bluetooth woes under high Sierra due to changes in the usb stack. experimenting with different patches and Rehabman usb fixes. 5: sometimes trackpad doesn't restore after sleep removed ApplePs2Controller and ApplePs2Keyboard from ApplePs2SmartTouchPad 4.7.b5 and I run both appleps2smarttouchpad and the old appleps2controller with it's plugins at the same time. I don't know if this helps or not. it seems like it does. sometimes the trackpad /stick still don't resume after sleep.
  3. The audio, trackpad issues are fixed. I have little/no corruption on boot, only for a flash of a second halfway up the boot process. I Enabled AFGLowpowerstate. I Added 0x64 to HorizontalPulseWidth and 0xA5 to VideoInputSignal.
  4. I still get slight corruption on boot, audio and trackpad disable after sleep, and no brightness slider... but maybe due to A18 bios!
  5. ACPIPoller experiment was a mistake. Alright. SMBIOS reset, clover configured to emulate MacBook Air 7,2 now. Wifi, sound, trackpad working before and after Sleep- but still. On boot, graphical corruption until lid is closed for a moment. But otherwise very good now!
  6. The changes made in high Sierra to how drives are expected to behave has left a lot of owners of older SSD's with firmware that is not apple's latest and greatest with issues everywhere. trimforce disable then trimforce enable might fix trim, and just turning it off might help...
  7. Causes graphical corruption during late boot phase followed by computer immediately going into standby. When resumed from standby, graphical corruption no longer evident but pad/point still don't work. Note: this is with appleps2controller from bootpack in clover/kexts/other, if I try this with voodoo it just stalls. Also I no longer have sound. also brightness hotkeys don't work.
  8. E7450 A18 5500HD MacbookAir7,1 10.13.3 Have successfully installed and am using High Sierra on this hardware by doing the following: Follow the guide combining files from the generic efi package along with the E7450_HD5500_Only_A17_HS.zip bootpack to create your clover image. Tweak the plist to a MacBook Air 7,1 and turn on AGLowPowerState in devices and add 0x64 to HorizontalSyncPulseWidth and add 0xA5 to VideoInputSignal. In bios, Legacy options on, Hard drive in AHCI mode. Full Installer created by running the stub wizard until it prompts for a reboot, killing it before reboot, Then running sudo mkdir /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Shared\ Support sudo cp -r /macOS\ Install\ Data /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Shared\ Support Following the guide, I continued on my merry way, using the files from both the A17 High Sierra Hotpack and also the Sierra EFI pack. After booting the USB key, formatting the drive, and running the first part of the installer, it fails with "osinstall.mpkg appears to be missing or damaged". But this isn't the bug. Opening the terminal and running 'cat /var/log/installer.log' reveals that the installer Cannot find /macOS\ Install\ Data\/InstallESDDmg.pkg. The file simply isn't present. However, it IS present on the USB key. I guess the installer is buggy and doesn't copy the file? sudo cp /Volumes/"Name of Install USB Drive"/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Shared\ Support /InstallESDDmg.pkg /Volumes/"Name of drive to be installed to"/macOS\ Install\ Data/ Follow by a reboot, and the installer continues to work. ​ Now for my only problem so far: When I close the lid and open it, the trackpad doesn't work anymore. I have tried the latest VoodooPs2Controller from Rehabman(after removing ApplePs2Controller from clover, otherwise the AppleACPI will stall perpetually). It doesn't work after sleep either. Is there something I need to change? Fixed, text in bold- thank you viking1304 and Jake Lo!
  9. after checking the log, the installer couldn’t find InstallESDDMG.pkg in macos install data. seems the installer didn’t copy it with the other files. i found the file in the install mac os app / sharedsupport folder and manually copied it into place, then rebooted. it now shows installing : 18 minutes remaining... reboots again... 10 min remaining.. seems to be working .. i also reset my smbios, used additional drivers out of the base efi package, and manually put clover configurator in with my installer on the usb drive- as long as you mount -uv / you can then do edits with clover by just manually running the binary. i then used clover to mount both efi partitions and then duplicated the usb stick onto the hard drive without having to run clover installer. then i was able to finish the installer without a usb stock.
  10. im on a e7450 with a usb drive containing the boot pack in the efi folder, latest clover, using apfs.efi hfsplus.efi and 10.13.2 installer on the main partition. i cannot format my drive to apfs, only hfs+. sometimes drive utility shows i have no free space and fails to erase/partition unless i select the drive itself and not the volumes. after video initialization screen goes blank until i close my screen and re-open it. after the installer copies the needed files to the drive and reboots, it tells me osinstaller.pkg is missing or corrupt and says mac os can’t be installed. would you please advise me on what to change? am i missing something?
  11. the way to build the installer that will work is to run the shim, wait till it prompts for a reboot, carefully quit the installer, then using the command line create installer.app/content/SharedSupport , then copy the downloaded installer files into that folder from their location at the root of the drive. after doing this, clover can find os x.
  12. update: the issue is with the source. using the patcher to download os x high sierra results in a modified base system.dmg which clover doesn’t recognize.
  13. i have the same issue and have tried it both ways along with installing additional drivers. clover doesn’t recognize or detect the hfs partition, additionally after opening the Uefi shell and navigating to the file system, ls returns that the file is not found.
  14. Two days ago, I created a OSX Sierra USB drive. While in a vmware SIERRA image on windows, I followed the guide: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-precision-el-capitan-clover-guide/ I downloaded Sierra 10.12.1 from the app store. It ran on it's own and I exited it. While following the guide, I found I couldn't get the InstallESD.DMG partition to mount. Turns out there is a hidden bug feature in Sierra that mounts the DMG in the background when the installer runs. You can locate it by going to /Volumes in Finder. It will also show up in DiskUtil. I attempted to assemble my own bootpack from files uploaded by others in the various bootpacks offered. The collection of files I offer here are collectively their work, with my own modifications made to config.plist in order to combine and ensure functionality. You should still install Karbiner-Elements in order to get all your function modifiers assigned. You still need to reconfigure permissions as indicated in the guide. While running the installer, I encountered a bug- possibly in the hardware combination I use, possibly a fluke in the downloaded DMG(unlikely). Every time I would run the installer I got to the point where it would check the drive, attempt to install the recovery data, then it would attempt to reset permissions and enable journaling again(from the log). This would fail and the installer log reports that the mount point is invalid, and the installer dialog reports that macOS could not be installed. The workaround is a bit technically complex and involves some command line operations, but works. mount -u -w /dev/[drive of usb media] hdiutil mount BaseSystem.dmg cd /Volumes/OS X Base System/SystemInstallation/CDIS/macOS Installer.app/Contents/macOS/ ./macOS\ Installer /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg Sierra automatically creates a CoreStorage volume(or did for me) so you'll need to follow that part of the guide too- otherwise your clover installer can't mount the EFI partition.

  15. Following the guide Latitude/Inspiron El Capitan I obtained a Dell E7450 BIOS A13 | i5-5300U 2.3 GHZ | 16GB LVDDR3 | Intel HD 5500, 1920x1080 I installed a Broadcom BCM94352Z M.2 | Intel 530 SSD(with hard drive bracket off eBay) I successfully patched DVMT using the provided offsets of 0x15b and 0x15c. Successfully resolved sound after sleep by setting "Reset HDA" in clover and using codeccommander.kext / EAPDFix.kext without any further tweaks to said kexts Resolved some powerd message spam in console by adding to FakeSMC Info.plist Clover dictionary <key>ACID</key> <array> <string>ch8*</string> <data>ut7DNVAFEGM=</data> </array> Resolved some basic issues with safari crashing due to el capitan changes in the way media streams embedded in flash content is handled by installing Perian. Resolved some graphical corruption issues by disabling shake mouse cursor to locate in Accessibility -> Display. What works: * Handoff, Facetime, Itunes, Ibooks, Appstore, iCloud, Webcam, Microphone, USB, USB3, Trackpoint and trackpad, Boot, Shutdown, and Sleep, Bluetooth and Ethernet. Graphics is detected as Intel HD Graphics 5500 1536 MB. SSD is detected with trim. System works nearly flawlessly, boots quickly, and runs smoothly. It still has some problems: * ssdPtrGEN.sh run and smbios.aml put in efi/clover/ACPI/patched, cpu is still detected as an i7. * System automatically goes to sleep whenever it is booted up, and has to be resumed from sleep before operation. - This issue also plagues the E6420 I configured using the same guide. * webcam does not work after system is manually put to sleep and resumed from sleep(i.e. it works after the bug sleep on boot but not after subsequent sleeps). * Cannot use custom EDID. System doesn't work right after I put it in. Graphics corruption/ not detected anymore. Do I need EDID for anything? Will it get colors more accurately? My EDID is here if anyone knows how to patch EDIDs and wants to give it a shot: 0x00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 4C 83 48 4C 00 00 00 00 0x10 00 17 01 04 95 1F 11 78 0A 36 25 93 56 55 93 29 0x20 1D 50 54 00 00 00 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 0x30 01 01 01 01 01 01 60 39 80 DC 70 38 40 40 30 20 0x40 25 00 35 AE 10 00 00 1A E7 2D 80 DC 70 38 40 40 0x50 30 20 25 00 35 AE 10 00 00 1A 00 00 00 FE 00 47 0x60 54 4B 44 59 80 31 34 30 48 4C 0A 20 00 00 00 00 0x70 00 00 41 21 94 00 10 00 00 02 01 0A 20 20 00 BA ---- The guide has an minor flaw: When I set up a USB drive for my E6420 I had to follow the installation media section of the guide. The guide does not clearly disambiguate that BaseSystem.dmg and BaseSystem.chunklist go at the root of the USB drive, not at the root of the Install OS X EL Capitan.dmg disk image on the drive.
