    Backup Solutions For Your Mac or CustoMac

    To all the ones who complain: you're not guaranteed to get answers on any website you ask a question but, while I posted threads here that had no answer at all, I've found this community generally very supportive, unlike another site whose name starts with "insanely" :mrgreen: where my recent...

    How To do to run a Nvidia GeForce Gt 210 with QE/CI on High sierra?

    Got a GT210 myself and I'm quite surprised as I never had any issue at all with nvidia kexts, be it in Sierra or High Sierra: I'd bet what made it for you is Inject Nvidia in your Clover config.plist. Also, don't forget to do a Safe Mode boot every time you change some kext, then reboot normally...

    AppleALC increases boot time by 4mn on 10.13.6!

    I know that page but I don't understand what you mean (sorry, I'm French...): are you suggesting I should post my issue at Insanelymac instead of here?

    AppleALC increases boot time by 4mn on 10.13.6!

    Hi! After many trials and research, it's clear: I've got a 22s boot time without AppleALC and about 4mn with it. Tested with: - Lilu 1.3.5 + AppleALC 1.3.7 - Lilu 1.3.6 + AppleALC 1.3.8 Having read somewhere that AppleALC 1.2.8 was different, I tried it and came back indeed to a 22s boot. In any...

    Same boot time with or without kernel/kext cache

    Hi! I've updated my Z68 desktop build (see signature) to MacOS 10.11.6 at the end of last year and It's working as perfectly as possible — or so it seems ;) ) but I've discovered today that there doesn't seem to be any difference (boot time or Console messages) with or without cache! I suppose...

    End Of MacOS on Intel?

    Interesting indeed, but my experience with the recent OSes I've used or tested (until 10.13) is that any time I install a new OS there are more and more things I've got to disable to make it simply usable — and it needs a lot of investigation for discovering what are the processes that cripple...

    kextd busy timeout IOHDACodecFunction, IOHDACodecFunction, IOHDACodecFunction

    Hi! Actually, I don't understand what you mean by "_PTS and _WAK methods" or "_ON and _OFF methods"... :-o Indeed, the E6320 has no discrete graphics card, that's why I thought your sleep issue might be related with NVidia drivers. You know, my "hackintoshing" is very empirical: when it gets too...

    Booting clover from a different config file

    You might find something that suits your needs with Custom Entries. This thread might help you: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-clover-the-miracle-of-custom-entries-revealed.265446/ You can put "10.11.x" or "10.1x.x" in the MatchOS column — I have used it only for 10.9/10.11 but I...

    Dell Latitude E6410 Won't Sleep

    Thank you! I was not aware of that F4 DSDT generation feature! I've just learnt something! :thumbup:

    Dell Latitude E6410 Won't Sleep

    Hi! I'm not enough savvy to analyze your logs and ioreg except for one thing: I don't see any mention of "sleep" in system.log, so I'd say the issue is even before attempting to sleep... Is there anything usb connected when you attempt sleeping? The big difference with my E6320 is your NVIDIA...

    kextd busy timeout IOHDACodecFunction, IOHDACodecFunction, IOHDACodecFunction

    I don't guarantee anything but you might be interested by my guide, though not exactly the same machine: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-darkthing-2-dell-latitude-e6320-i7-2640m-2-8-ghz.253346/ I've achieved short boot time and working sound.

    End Of MacOS on Intel?

    In all my years as a Mac user, I had too many occasions to discover that Apple doesn't care much about their old clients. From a business point of view they are even unfortunately right as long as they sell more new products (and in the present days, meaning "more iPhones"...) than the year...

    [GUIDE] Installing 3rd Party Kexts - El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina

    This "kext updater" might seem a good idea, but it's very common that kexts have to stick to an older version to keep working correctly, even FakeSMC itself! My Z68 desktop needs FakeSMC 6.17.1386 to work properly, be it in MacOS 10.9 or 10.11! My Z68 laptop needs a specific version of...

    [GUIDE] Installing 3rd Party Kexts - El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina

    My experience says yes! I had to do it before finding the right version for VoodooPS2Controller.kext on my laptop (different version for different OS versions installed) — though I can't guarantee it will work for any kext in the world, but unless they are not critical kexts, there's no harm...

    [GUIDE] Installing 3rd Party Kexts - El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina

    Finally a great and clear guide about those kexts folders! Thanks a lot. :) I wish I had that clear information when I started testing Clover. As every rule has its exception, my DELL E6320 laptop needs VoodooHDA.kext in EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.11, it doesn't work in L/E or S/L/E, no matter what...

    How To do to run a Nvidia GeForce Gt 210 with QE/CI on High sierra?

    Great news! Did you need some special procedure or what? Are there any glitches or else? EDIT: whoops! I've read "Yes it did work for me"... :mrgreen:

    How To do to run a Nvidia GeForce Gt 210 with QE/CI on High sierra?

    I can't agree more! Today, I've just had success putting an "unsupported" WLAN card from a Dell Mini 9 into my Dell E6320 WWAN slot, plus a cloned Snow Leopard and a kext I picked from the Mini 9 (my first hackintosh...) and to my delight it worked! :headbang: Some could say "We're only in it...
