I already have in my current Haswell build where I modded my BIOS to boot natively from my NVMe drive connected via a PCI adapter. This was actually discussed in posts posts #56 - #58 as per quote below:
I've manually updated your EFI from OC v0.8.5 to v0.8.6 .
Updated the Drivers and 1 Kext (AppleALC.kext)
ocvalidate found the following errors below due to the update;
OpenCanopy.efi is loaded at UEFI->Drivers, but Misc->Boot->PickerMode is not set to External!
- You seemed to have ALL the Drivers in your EFI yet your config.plist does not reflect that (which is Good). OC Snapshot would normally add those in so not sure why it hadn't for you. Anyway I've removed the ones you weren't using.
- Same thing with your Tools folder however your config.plist...
- The Utilities folder is not part of the OC folder. Please remove it.
- A minor error in your config.plist ;
NOTE: This version of ocvalidate is only compatible with OpenCore version 0.8.6!
OpenCanopy.efi is loaded at UEFI->Drivers, but Misc->Boot->PickerMode is not set to External...
Your EFI is missing an Ethernet kext
AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext - Download this Atheros Ethernet Kext if you are using the Z77-DS3H onboard
Add the above kext to your EFI's Kext folder and then open your config.plist in ProperTree and do a CMD-R (OC snapshot), Save, Exit and Reboot
- To reset your network, use this guide;
- Your AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext should work. Maybe you need to mount your EFI and open your config.plist in ProperTree and do a Cmd+R (OS Snapshot), Save, Exit and reboot.
- If you upgrade...
Options 1 though to 8 dump your SSDTs. However, the only SSDT that will be useful for your Z77 motherboard from SSDTTime is the FakeEC (aka SSDT_EC).
For power management, you would need to use the PikeRAlpha method (as per my guide's Power Management )
Hi @pastrychef ,
have you heard of Gigabyte Project Stealth
Linux Tech Tips video on the subject. Don't think it really solves the issues you've raised but it's better that the design we have have currently.
Not the sort of money that you're eluding to unfortunately?
But fair enough MacMac and thanks for your response. i clearly know nothing about web development to understand what resources and man or woman hours that are required to make this Dark Mode function happen. TBH, i thought it was maybe...
thanks @5T33Z0 and I do appreciate the hard work that you have contributed to the OC-Anonymizer utility.
I also did notice that you could edit the python script but I still believe my suggestion of an Options List that I mentioned in post #3 would make OC-Anonymizer a more user friendly and...
I'm currently working on my old P5Q Deluxe which was my first ever Hackintosh build that used a Snow Leopard CD and an iBoot CD for the install (ahh.. those were the days..) :)
It later became a great Pf Sense Box (a big ar$e box) for about a year, back when I was using it with an old ADSL...
Asus P8H61-M Pro uses the Realtek RTL8111E
so use the Kext from Mieze / RTL8111_driver_for_osx here .
It was recommended by Dortania not to use the latest version for older systems so maybe choose the Release Version 2.2.2 (2018-01-21) firstly.
Also read the Readme file as it has some useful...
Great point Edhawk, I did have that thought in the back of my mind and your quite right to be concerned.
I think dreamwhite and @5T33Z0 would do well to modify the OC-Anonymizer script giving us the following options;
1) Sanitise SMBIOS Data Only / Retains the SystemProductName value e.g...
For those of you still posting your EFI's with your own unique Serial No and ROM values inside your config.plist for all to view, use and potentially misuse, I thought that I should post this guide on how you can sanitise your config.plist before uploading to a forum.
