I'm having problems using one-key-hdcpi
Going back from sleep, the screen appears smaller and on the left superior corner
I have tried different configurations (with and without EDID, with and without correction for sleep) but the result is the same
By the way, I'm using a FHD screen and i7 8550 and MacOS Catalina 10.15.2
Beside of that, working with only small problems (even when I'm using the original Samsung PM961 disk with 512 bytes format)

Thanks!

I saw that... Using the last driver by Intel I saw that error
The latest driver from Dell doesn't install, don't know why
You need to use the driver from Dell, but no the last one, but the one before.

Thanks! Can you find put the right version so I can try ? Do you have the same display ?

I have an Apple USBC to Ethernet adapter, was wondering if it should be visible under the Thunderbolt section in System Information. It does work
in Ubuntu FWIW

For me it works, but it's non hotswappable

Wish I had seen your messages before @PastilloAr and @cele_82 . I had the same error (installed the graphic drivers from Intel instead of Dell because it complained about not being the right one). Had the loop;1:err1; too. Unfortunately I have a blank screen ever since and think from what I've read that I have to change the screen altogether.

Do you know if it's fixable?
Do you think a QHD screen would still work for hackintosh? Thanks

As far as I understand, QHD screen worked for Darkvoid (https://github.com/the-darkvoid/XPS9360-macOS) and others. Mine is FHD.
I don't know if the problem is fixable or you have to change the screen.... maybe you can try connecting an external screen to retry the update, using the correct driver.

Did you format your NVME right? Did you enable TRIM and SSD power management?

I run a M2 SSD, so can’t comment on this topic. Skip through this thread, there is a lot of valuable stuff hidden somewhere in the middle. But I remember reading some posts last year about NVME power management, so this maybe your culprit.

What SSD model is yours ? NVMe fix is helping a little with general temperature stuff but not so much in overall power.


Also with your settings... can you remind me why formatting to 4k sectors is important ? I left my disk with 512b


Lastly, did you do any undervolting ? Is it worth ?

pkg at 0.7W. You need to use the USB-C fix from the dark void repo on GitHub. This is also in my EFI, so if you used my whole EFI without updating anything, you should have the same draw. Btw turn off your touchscreen and the sd card reader in BIOS, it saves you a little bit and it may be the culprit.

Hi @Richylitschy what is Core min frequency reported in Intel Power Gadget ? I just swapped my NVME for an SSD and I swear it would go down to 0.4 sometimes... now best I saw is 0.7GHz. My PKG power after the SSD swap has gone to ~0.7W when idle.

Correction. I can see 0.4GHZ after sleep... is there a reason why I would need Sleep/Wake to get the CPU to a lower ghz ?
