What is notification?
In order to understand you would need to have some familiarity with the code in ACPIBatteryManager.kext, ACPI, and the way ACPI Notify is handled in the kernel.

Did you try testing VirtualSMC.kext and SMCBatteryManager.kext as suggested?

Would like to install Mavericks, eventually 13f1911, on a 4530s with sandy bridge i5 and hd3000 graphics. Can I still follow this guide for this os/notebook combination?

I'm not testing on Mavericks, but AFAIK, it should still work.

Hey guys, I need a helping hand creating the USB installer so that I can reach the installer screen (always reboots with End random seed and some extra messages which are to quick to read in verbose and debug doesn't seem to hold/work there). I was trying to follow to RehabMan's guide to the letter which worked some year ago nicely for 10.12.6. But I can't pull it off for 10.13.6. God knows why.
This is where I come from:
- Bios settings as recommended and pgraphics preallocation set
- used terminal to create partitions on usb thumbdrive
- Used his guide for USB clover installer: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/
- I tried Rehabman's latest clover build from here: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/clover/downloads/ (2018-10-10). But the standard clover settings for UEFI drivers doesn't come any close to his UEFI drivers screenshot. I quote: "the defaults for Drivers64UEFI are recommended" - that doesn't come even close to his screenshot: drivers64uefi-png.353014
- As these recommended settings (HFSPlus.efi was added manually of course) failed me to reproduce the given screenshot, I added the missing files from here: https://github.com/athlonreg/Clover_Build/tree/master/drivers64UEFI to complete the screenshot recommendations
- kexts added manually as per recommendation (screenshot)
- I also gave it a try to turn off the patch of RehabMan's config.plist because quote: "If your laptop has DVMT-prealloc set as required (64MB or 128MB), you should disable or remove the 32MB patch. You will find such patches in config.plist/Devices/Properties/PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0)." I used PlistEdit Pro for the job.

And yet... I can't make it to the installer screen. Reboot after reboot. I tried dropping tables, -x as clover option - nothing got me to the desired installer screen :banghead:
added note: sometimes I manage to read that my cpu might not be supported - but the text is too fast and I have never/ haven't swapped the cpu since 10.12.6.
I'm lost. Please help
Thank you so much

and I believe the renaming string for terminal in the USB installer creation guide for HIGH Sierra has a typo:
# rename
sudo diskutil rename "Install macOS Sierra" install_osx
I think it should read "macOS High Sierra"
