I was using a Samsung SSD 970 EVO 500GB without problems for two years with macOS (High Sierra, Catalina, BigSur). I am slowly running out of space and therefore I decided to upgrade to a 1TB drive. Because Samsung drives are supposed to be not the best pick for macOS (see here) I went for the...
I just built a new hack with 10.13.6. Most things are working but shutdown and restart has issues.
1. When I shutdown or restart it always takes very long (around 10s) after the kernel halted before the computer shuts off or restarts. Just a black screen with fans going up until the process...
I am trying to install macOS 10.13.6 (fresh installer from the store) on a Samsung 970 Evo nvme Disk. My problem is that when booting the installer from clover that the kernel stops very early in the boot process:
The last line that looks like an error is: AppleNVMEeAssertFailed: (0 != data)...
I was inspecting the kernel logs because I was testing the new AppleALC kext with sierra. While this was going fine I found these bad boys in my kernel log:
ACPI Warning: \134_SB_.PCI0.PEGP.GFX0._DSM: ACPI Warning: \134_SB_.PCI0.PEGP.GFX0._DSM: Argument #4 type mismatch - Found [Buffer], ACPI...
App Store is offering me "Thunderbolt Firmware Update 1.0". Obviously I must not installe this update (possibly breaking my firmware?).
How do I make the AppStore think I have already installed the update?
I use clover without smbios section (automatically set to imac 12,2).
As far as I see the clover installer does not automatically inject FakeSmc.kext.
So booting OS X without a FakeSmc.kext in /S/L/E from USB (first time boot after the installation) is not possible with a clover standard config, isn't it?
So how do I inject it?
Is it possible to boot the OS X partition (i.e chimera) with a UEFI or it es necessary to use bios compatibility for all the stuff to work (dsdt etc.)?
What about the installation? Should I use mbr(bios) or guid(uefi) for the stick?
I have this board and an Ivy Bridge CPU with Intel HD4000 + Radeon HD6850. My Apple Thunderbolt Display will be connected to the Thunderbolt Output of the Board (i.e connected to the HD4000).
Will OS X detect both graphics and automatically switch to the dedicated graphics when necessary but...
