    10.11.0-10.11.3 Skylake Starter Guide

    Looks 'normal' to me. Your boot sequence aught to continue regardless.

    [GUIDE/Workaround] Using Intel HD530 with Dual Monitors

    Beat me to it! :) Perhaps you could go a bit further, and explain in more detail your own setup in regards to multi-monitor? That is, assuming you have such mult-monitor setup. Presumably its all exactly the same as per the OP's Gaming 5 in post #1.

    [Guide] 10.11+ USB changes and solutions

    Its a Samsung 850 Evo in the cheapest possible ($10) usb 3.0 enclosure... I wouldn't be surprised if the little sata controller on it was only sata 2. [EDIT] It seems if I want to buy a new one, the best choice would be USB 3.1 Gen1 with 'USAP' signalling feature. Since SATA III is limited to...

    10.11.0-10.11.3 Skylake Starter Guide

    and @ThePsyion @paulkol sorry nevermind. Is OK now. Its because had been testing on 'dd' command with /dev/disk which is very poor performance. Instead, /dev/rdisk is the correct block device to use in osx... So actually the USB 3.0 ports are all working fine. And at the full usb 3 speeds. No...

    10.11.0-10.11.3 Skylake Starter Guide

    Sorry nevermind, problem solved. Because testing with 'dd' command on /dev/disk is very bad performance. Instead must use /dev/rdisk.... The USB 3.0 was working fine actually. Many thanks for joevt (on other thread), who pointed that out to me.

    [Guide] 10.11+ USB changes and solutions

    Horryay! Yes, it is this ^^. Your suspicion was correct. I was using '/dev/disk'. And that was the only reason for the reported slow speed. With your suggestion about trying rdisk instead, it works absolutely fine. 251 MB/sec for the SSD. And 38.4 MB/sec for the hard drive. # ssd...

    [Guide] 10.11+ USB changes and solutions

    OK thanks joevt, and @RehabMan for your other suggestions about testing USB 3.0 speed. I will try those when it becomes possible for me to do so. a) Yes I was wrong about the issue being related to hot-plugging USB on the Alpine Ridge. Have retested also with the USB device plugged in from...

    Well that is good news. Nice to hear. I don't suppose you can share with me your clover folder to compare to my one? My USB still isn't working right. Many thanks.

    10.11.0-10.11.3 Skylake Starter Guide

    Hello there! I have a very similar motherboard. Everything else is working, however unfortunately all of my USB 3.0 ports only working at the slower 2.0 speed. So it would really help to compare my EFI folder against your one. If its not too much trouble, can we do this? Please to email me a...

    10.11.0-10.11.3 Skylake Starter Guide

    Hi there. Did you manage to get your USB 3.0 ports working at USB 3 speeds in the end? Because I'm experiencing the same exact issue, on a similar motherboard here (ga-z170x gaming 3).

    Oh I'm very sorry. It was because it was 4:30am at that point and very tired, had been up for 22 hours. Please find attached again (i make sure this time!). Its got the ssd in it. Speed test here (of same session new again): Last login: Thu Mar 16 14:09:15 on ttys001 ga-z170x-g3:log janitor$...

    [Guide] 10.11+ USB changes and solutions

    zipb, the '2 weird port' are USR1 and USR2. Most likely from default iMac17,1 hardware profile (mac hardware specific), and definately nothing about the Thunderbolty. To get Thunderbolt 3 working (according to joevt say to me in a PM), you just need the latest sierra version 10.12.3. And to...

    [Guide] 10.11+ USB changes and solutions

    OK, now booted into ubuntu 16.04.1 live cd, and plugged back the 60GB hard drive into the adaptor, and then a USB 3.0 port. Here is the speed on linux: ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo bash -l root@ubuntu:~# dd if=/dev/sde of=/dev/null bs=1m count=100 dd: invalid number: ‘1m’ root@ubuntu:~# dd if=/dev/sde...

    [Guide] 10.11+ USB changes and solutions

    Interesting... I test the speed in windows and its about 27MB/Sec. Which is still USB 2.0 Speeds. So I take out the 2.5 inch hdd and replace it with an ssd. Now says 180MB/sec in windows OK... And 20MB/Sec in OS X: ga-z170x-g3:log root# dd if=/dev/disk1 of=/dev/null bs=1m count=100 100+0...

    [Guide] 10.11+ USB changes and solutions

    OK Thanks! This ^ above sentence is very easy to understand. Perhaps you could add in your post #1 for other people to know that. OK so then I attach here all new latest Problem Reporting files. Plus in the Terminal Saved output it also include my DD speed test command and results 14MB/Sec...

    [Guide] 10.11+ USB changes and solutions

    Ah OK! I seen now, they were already included in my clover's config.plist, because I base that off somebody else's (who has slightly different motherboard). Right sorry. But that was actually my 'why?' question: What is the effect of ignoring the 15 port limit? That we cannot remove the config...

    [GUIDE/Workaround] Using Intel HD530 with Dual Monitors

    Uh sorry I didn't bother to check the 2nd monitor hot-plugging in that situation (when DVI is identified as 40,000 DP). But it certainly booted up into MacOS fine with DVI as the single monitor only. Didn't notice any (*obvious*) issue or anything strange during that brief login session.

    @RehabMan, Sorry to be a nuicanse again here. My understanding is better now. Just can you please confirm these few things about the USB ports? It would help improve my understanding very much. Thank you. So I can't use FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext. That is only for Z97 and earlier mobos. I read...

    [Guide] Creating a Custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext

    Oh sorry @RehabMan, I thought its limit of 15 *physical* USB ports. There are only 13 on this motherboard. That both HS + SS counted as 1 USB port. OK so I removed HS01, HS02, HS03, HS04, HS05, HS06, and HS09. While keeping only SS01, SS02, SS03, SS04, SS05, SS06 and SS09 for all these USB 3.0...
