Those logs are not coming from Clover.

You should partition using Disk Utility.

Any idea what would be generating them, and if it would affect macOS performance? I actually got those errors after switching to 4k LBA, and then booting macOS installer, formatting drive with Disk Utility, and doing clean install. The other partition tools described above was me attempting to fix it.

Cool to see someone new try ACPI hotpatch (based on my guide)....

FYI: that OSID->XSID patch looks wrong... (you only need to take care of _OSI->XOSI....)

Yes ofc, I'd still be looking for the power button without your guides ;)

That OSID->XSID patch was implemented because I had the same issue as #29, not sure if that was causing any problems without the patch, but better to not have code edits in unintended places.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-Polarized-Grounding-Adapter-2-Pack-14404/203684998 @fv316 old homes have ground issues that will cause coil whine this should fix it.sorry for being off topic

Even though I live in a moderately new apartment building, and it seems the coil whine is caused mostly by cpu load, I'll definitely give that a try! Heck if $5 can make a difference, I'll do it twice :D

Edit: turns out I've actually already got 3-prong outlets, bummer.

No idea. I don't have any NVMe devices that can switch to 4k.
You should look at the offsets of the partitions it is complaining about and then try to infer what the problem is...

Renaming a method that is actually defined will have no effect.
The _OSI->XOSI is a special case, as _OSI is not defined anywhere... it is provided by the ACPI host. So we use an _OSI->XOSI rename, simply so we can direct all _OSI calls to our own method instead of the _OSI provided by the ACPI host.

By using OSID->XSID, you're changing all calls to OSID to be calls to XSID. And the actual method definition to XSID.
Net result: no change at all...

The only case you might want to rename OSID is the case where you find an OSID reference that is preceded by an underscore (eg. _OSID) because that might match the _OSI->XOSI patch (unintended). So you would want to be certain to rename OSID prior to _OSI->XOSI... Especially if it is difficult to make the _OSI->XOSI patch more selective.

Yes exactly, there was 5 cases of _OSID being caught in the _OSI->XOSI patch, which is what the OSID->XSID is for. Would you say making the _OSI patch more selective would be a much better idea? I agree that one concise patch is better than two, but there is also the element of simplicity. Doing '_OSI '->XOSI sadly won't work. I'm attaching an unpatched dsdt incase you'd like to check.

It would be difficult.
Suggest you add a comment to your OSID patch stating the purpose...

hi, i have a little problem.
i installed os x without the wifi card swap, today i recive it, so i did a kext cache reload but its still hidden.
so i tryed to extract the dsdt tables again and do the whole process, but when i try to decompile them iasl says invalid signature
What can i do?, thanks¡

EDIT.. forget about it, now it works. but after redoing the dsdt.aml i get the following KP

hello
please, give link where i can buy this charger and usb-c to hdmi adapter to use it with macos

I don't know if it's available in your region. In Italy it is, and it's very cheap: https://www.amazon.it/dp/B01GL4MFVU/?tag=tonymacx86com-21
I've been using it for months without any issue.
Any USB-PD charger with at least 20V 1.5A will work.
This one is particularly good because the power it communicates during the PD negotiation is correct, unlike many others on the market.

Regarding USB-C cable and HDMI cable, they are cheap products bought on Ebay. Anything will work.
