  1. Resolved. If someone has a similar problem, try the following: Since it turned out that when I disconnect from the internet, approx. half a minute later, the CPU load disappears. So I tried to sign out of my Apple ID, restart my computer, and then sign in again with my Apple ID. Then the CPU overload disappeared ...
  2. Hi, I followed JakeLo's guide here and Big Sur now works perfectly with OC. There is only one problem. The CPU is almost 100% loaded even when it is completely idle. I had not experienced such a problem under Catalina before. Anyone have any tips on what the problem might be? Balázs
  3. Hi. Although I experienced this problem too, unfortunately the trackpad didn't work for me either, so I started to delete the kexts that I haven't used during the clover so far and watched when a change happens. When I realized the mistake, I could only laugh at it! : D Solution: Delete "SMCDellSensors.kext" from "config.plist / Kernel" and it will work!
  4. Hi there. Back in January, I was a macOS user on a Dell e7440 laptop. Unfortunately, this machine broke down on the go. By now I managed to buy another one also with an i7 processor. But unfortunately my installer is no longer there. I tried to create one under Win10 -vmware now, I still have the efi-m backup I used in January, which worked perfectly back then, I wanted to use it to create a new installer. I downloaded the latest macOS Catalina to my virtual machine. I created the installer USB and then tried to install the latest clover. That's when I noticed that the latest Clo

  6. Hi, On a Dell E7440, I wanted to upgrade from macOS 10.15.3 to 10.15.4. When the system reboots and I try to boot from the “data” partition, the apple logo appears but nothing happens after that. Clover 5103 is installed and I am using the latest Kexts. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be? Thanks for the help! Balazs
  7. Hello, I want to upgrade my Dell E7440 from 10.15.2 to 10.15.3. Everything added, I use the latest Clover (5103) and all my Kexts are up to date. I start the update, everything goes fine, but it just finishes, restarts, but the system stays on 10.15.2…. I don't know what's wrong. I made a video of how the update is going. Could someone watch the video and help me out? Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oklU2mrMmQY&t=2s Thank you in advance for your help! Hi, Balazs
  8. it hasn't let me down since then so i'm still trying to get wifi from the installer. In the kexts/others folder, I deleted all kext files that have to do with WiFi, but when I start the installer it is still connected to the wifi network. I made a trial image of a new mojave installer and used the old installer EFI folder. I've found that when I boot from the new installer, it's already automatically connected to my wifi network, so it must be saved somewhere. Anyone know where the wifi profile can be saved in efi?
  9. No! Indeed! All E7440s originally came out with intel wifi card...
  10. The Wi-Fi make (DW1550) was stated above. Once the installation is complete, both wifi and ethernet will work without any problems or setup. In fact, wifi works during installation when it first asks for apple id. Only the beginning of the installation does not work with either wifi or ethernet, so when I can still choose to do a Time machine reset or install… Attaching a picture (to the left is the old Mojave and to the right is the new Catalina) showing the directory of the old Mojave installer kexts where the wifi was still running and the Catalina kexts directory currently used whe
  11. I'm sorry, but I think we're not thinking the same thing because of my very lack of English. (I'm writing from Hungary) I have attached an image as an attachment so that I can see where I want to access both Wifi and Ethernet. In my previous USB installer it worked smoothly under macOS Mojave (I have attached the picture), but unfortunately my Catalina installer no longer works with Wifi or Ethernet at the start of the installation. Postage: After installing Catalina, I didn't have to swap the two kexts you mentioned, just as I did under Mojave for Wifi to work. During Mojave I
  12. Sorry, this was missed. Yes, this is an E7440 device. That's how I solve ethernet. DW1550 WiFi Module Module. After installation, this works perfectly. I want to get you started with an installer and select a time machine there if you want one time WiFi.
  13. Hello, I made a Catalina USB installer as described in the “Clover Guide”. It works perfectly, only 2 things don't work. - Ethernet - WiFi Could you please help me what kind of kext is missing? Many times I would need WiFi or Ethernet if I do a Time Machine reset. I've included an EFI folder so you can see what's on the installer. Thank you in advance for your help! EFI.zip
  14. Dear Jake, Your expertise seems to have been successful. Battery feedback works perfectly! Thank you very much for your help. Currently, I did this: "/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/SMCHelper.efi" deleted "/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/ACPIBatteryManager.kext" deleted "/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/FakeSMC.kext" was deleted "/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/VirtualSmc.efi" copied "/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/SMCBatteryManager.kext" copied "/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/VirtualSMC.kext" copied But in addition, the downloaded VirtualSMC package contained 3 kexts: "SMCLightSensor.kext", "SMCProcessor.kext"
  15. I opened "install_tools.sh "file, I looked at the directories you're using and finally realized that Catalina protection should be turned off so it works. Unfortunately, I couldn't find SMCBatteryManager.kext anywhere, so I couldn't give it a try. Otherwise, if I delete VirtualSMC, it will not boot. I tried VoodooBatterySMC instead of "ACPIBatteryManager.kext" but it made almost no difference. Maybe just that with "ACPIBatteryManager.kext" I can't manually update the battery status icon, only restarting helps, but with "VoodooBatterySMC" if I turn the percentage display off and on t
  16. Currently, I generated "USBPorts.kext", "SSDT-EC.aml" and "SSDT-UIAC.aml" using "Hackintool.app". I have just restarted it, but so far it looks like both bluetooth and USB ports are working. All I need to do is figure out the battery status and what to do with debug "install_tools.sh: line 54: gen_debug: command not found" ...
  17. So far I have not achieved anything with battery status, but I have a bigger problem. If I remove the "SSDT-UIAC-E7440.aml" file, when I plug in any USB device, it says "It requires a USB power supply". But if i put it back then bluetooth is not available ...
  18. okay I did everything. - Bluetooth works perfectly, this is solved by moving 3 kext to /S/L/E folder. - Waking up your laptop works the way I want it to! Thank you for your Jake! But two things still don't work: - Unfortunately, the battery status is still unchanged. - Unfortunately, I still can't create the debug file. The mistake is still the same. Can you still help with these?
  19. Hello, I made a new installation for Dell E7440 based on the following description: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-precision-vostro-xps-clover-guide/?tab=comments#comment-94956 For installation I used "Clover_v2.5k_r5102" and the following Bootpack: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/6472-dell-latitude-e7240e7440/?tab=comments#comment-86943 After installation, I did the following: Post Install: Kexts inside /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/CopyToLE are to be copied to /Library/Extension Repair permissions and rebuild cache
  20. I realized the mistake! After all, I apologize to everyone for all the many questions, it was entirely my fault. I'd rather write it before someone else is doing stupid things like that and hurrying ... At the end of the installation, I hurriedly pressed the forward and backward buttons, leaving the Filevault disk encryption enabled. That's why Clover couldn't see the boot disk ... Thank you all again for your help and my apologies for your confusion! I wish you a very Happy New Year!!!
  21. I wanted to use the pack on this link but unfortunately it didn't boot. Clover loaded, but after I selected the system, the strip started and stopped about halfway through. From there it goes no further ...
