    [Guide] Asus ROG G551/552, GL551/552 Series (Skylake, i7-6700HQ, HD 530) Using Clover UEFI

    I have checked out the voodooi2c thread, and tried a bunch of different things, includingt those kext builds, but no luck. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, I feel as if I've tried everything! Which kext build are you using currently? The VoodooI2C.kext Dec282016.zip one that you...

    [Guide] Asus ROG G551/552, GL551/552 Series (Skylake, i7-6700HQ, HD 530) Using Clover UEFI

    Hi @LiteGaming I have a second laptop, Asus ROG GL552VW-DH71, same as you, but I am having a lot of trouble getting VoodooI2C to work for my trackpad! Would I be able to trouble you for a copy of your VoodooI2C.kext and DSDT.aml? I can't figure it out, I've patched my DSDT with and without...

    [Guide] Laptop backlight control using AppleBacklightFixup.kext

    Hi, I've tried almost everything I could in the first post of this, guide but still no backlight control. Here's my info... any ideas about what I'm missing? Perhaps something to do with DSDT? (my patched DSDT is called DSDT1.aml)

    Skylake Laptop HD530 graphics kernel panics

    Figured out the issue. My kernel cache was not updating properly, so I would get a panic every single time. Reason being, I was getting into my system wrong! I was putting 0x12345678 into "fake id" instead of 0x12345678 into "ig-platform-id". Once I put it into ig-platform-id, booted my system...

    Skylake Laptop HD530 graphics kernel panics

    Thanks @RehabMan Alright, so I reviewed the common problems and issues. The fact remains that everything was working fine at 10.12.3 update, but then severely broke at 10.12.4 update. Attached are the problems reporting files that I'm working with

    Skylake Laptop HD530 graphics kernel panics

    I've been hitting my head against a brick wall for the past week, and I'm wondering if anyone could help solve my graphics problems. Anyone have similar issues? Here's my story the best that I can recall: Got automatically updated to 10.12.4. After booting, it would just fade to a 'black...

    Skylake HD530 problems

    Success!! Well, sort of. I found this solution: - Few artifacts / white settings-bar on top (solve with setting color profile (sRGB IEC61966-2.1)) (System Preferences-->Displays-->Color) http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-installing-el-capitan-on-spectre-x360-skylake.186047/ This gets the...

    Skylake HD530 problems

    I tried setting DVMT-prealloc with UEFI, but I kept getting an error message. I looked into it, and it appears that my bios just won't allow it. :( I'll try the minStolenPatch again... perhaps I was using the Broadwell version as the one I tried using didn't work.

    Skylake HD530 problems

    I've been trying everything! At this point, I'm assuming it is a DVMT problem, as my wife's new Skylake laptop works just fine with Intel HD 530 i7-6700HQ. But for my new Skylake laptop, I've got problems. Same intel chip, but I was able to set her DVMT. I can't set DVMT in my bios, and I...

    Skylake HD530 problems

    It appears that my DVMT is set to 128mb (found out using device manager in windows). I've looked into changing DVMT to 96mb, but my bios is also locked as it is an InsydeH20. :banghead: I tried using the minStolenSize patch, both versions, but it won't work. I think the only thing I can do now...

    Skylake HD530 problems

    @RehabMan I can't seem to find the minStolenSize patch you are referring to... is it a DSDT patch or clover kext patch?

    Skylake HD530 problems

    Nope - wasn't even aware of that patch until a moment ago when I saw your post for H20 520 artifacts or glitch. I'll look into this and report back

    Skylake HD 520 artifacts or glitch problems.

    @sherlocks It appears I have a similar graphic menu bar glitch problem, as posted here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/skylake-hd530-problems.193711/

    Skylake HD530 problems

    Ahhh. THATS why I couldn't find my 1st post after I swear I posted it. I actually can't set DVMT-prealloc in my bios. Considering that I do get qe/ci, how would it affect things? I briefly looked into unlocking my bios so I could do that... but that appears to be a risky, difficult task I...
