- HP EliteDesk 800 G5 Mini
- UHD 630
- Mobile Phone
I'm finding conflicting reports on the proper use of these. So far, I haven't found any combination of the two to make any difference in the behavior of my EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. I do need to enable CLOVER's KernelPm patch in order to boot macOS with CLOVER, so I would expect to require OC's 'Kernel > Quirks > AppleXcpmCfgLock = YES'
Only one of the two is required.
- AppleCpuPmCfgLock: NO
- AppleXcpmCfgLock: YES
to boot macOS with OC, but I don't. No idea why.
I'm not sure how to interpret those 'BIOS options' or how we would use them. I downloaded the HP installer for the latest HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini BiOS and extracted the BIN firmware component (see attached archive). I can view the .bin with UEFITool, but I don't see 'Setup' in the tool, so I'm unable to find CFG Lock (let alone its offset).I extracted the BIOS options from the powershell tool of my backup 600G5. I am not seeing any cfglock option but it may be called something else.
EDIT: A note about the Dortania docs: The Dortania docs are incredibly well written, but not without flaws. I haven't been taking anything from the docs as gospel without trying it myself. For example, in the "converting from CLOVER" section here, the Dortania docs indicate that "Clover will auto-apply this patch [KernelPm] without setting it if the MSR E2 was locked, so you may actually need AppleXcpmCfgLock even if Clover didn't." I never found CLOVER to automatically set KernelPm.
