    Life without TRIM Support and "My SSD Used to Be so Much Faster" (Active Garbage Collection)

    I've been running Catalina but not letting the system sleep. I've noticed that on reboots the M.2 SSD is getting slower and slower to boot up. Because this is a 3rd party (non-Apple) drive and trimforce is not enabled, the drive needs time to clean house. Today I learned that this is because I...

    Installing on ASrock H170M PRO4 with Catalina, stuck on "Waiting on <dict ID="0"> when booting from USB.

    First off, I wrote the guide on the ASRock H170 PRO4, 4 years ago. Due to software moving on, I need to update to Catalina but can't get this mobo to boot the Catalina Install off the thumbdrive. I always get ghostbuster symbol (no disk) and the error message: Waiting on <dict ID="0">...

    Does anyone have Catalina installed on a HP ProDesk 600 G3 Mini i5-7500T? It's a small little computer about the size of the Mac Mini. I've been reading and goofing around for a couple of days using clover settings and can't move past "PCI configuration end" of the MacOS install boot. I did...

    Mojave Install (M.2 SSD) NO DISK, HighSierra Detects M.2 Installs Fine

    What is the trick to get Mojave to see M.2 SSD disks? I've looked at the [SOLVED] threads and didn't find a good solution. Using the same M.2 SSD by Crucial the High Sierra installer works fine and sees the disk without issue. I am assuming there is a patch. If you can help direct me to it, I...

    Mojave boot problem hang/freeze at BIOS, worked fine, now can only UEFI boot off USB

    Something bad happened, and I assumed it was EFI corruption. The problem: When UEFI booting the computer from internal SSD, the computer hangs/freezes on BIOS screen, no error, just total lockup. The workaround: If I boot using clover UEFI off the USB install, everything A-OK. What I...

    DSDT Compile Error, Function Return Value Problem

    I understand the DSDT syntax, but not how to fix the problem. As you can see from the screen shot below in areas highlighted in yello, I have random Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, and Arg3 after the return value causing a compile error. Since functions can only return one value I tried to make SDSM into...

    Asrock H170M Pro4 Audio ( Realtek ALC892 ) Not Detected

    I used multibeast to add the kexts for alc892 but El Capitan is not detecting the Audio chipset. I've powered off, unplugged to reset. Rest bios, reloaded OS X. I am assuming chipset is working, new board. Have also done a lot of reading but most people have success. Thanks for any ideas.
