I'm running 10.12.6 at the moment, everything works right now except USB. I'm currently using GenericUSBXHCI.kext to get USB 3.0 functionality, but I'd like to actually fix both USB 2 and 3 correctly and not have to rely on GenericUSBXHCI.kext. I'm sure it's just a matter of renaming the ECHI and XHCI devices in DSDT and injecting the ports, but the guides I've found don't specifically work on my motherboard.

This is a Xeon Workstation motherboard, has C600/X79 chipset.

I've uploaded some files I dumped from Linux (output of 'lspci -vvnn', 'lsusb -v', 'hwinfo', 'dmidecode'), my unmodified DSDT.aml and a dump of my \EFI\CLOVER\ folder, minus themes of course.

quick update: I have it sorta working now, but it's not correct.

WHAT I DID:
1) I made two edits to my DSDT.aml, replacing all instances of USBE with EH01 and all instances of USBE with EH02.
2) added USB-Inject-All.kext, FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/other/
3) still using GenericUSBXHCI.kext for USB 3.0 support

RESULT:

1) I now have working USB 2.0 on all the USB 2.0 ports I've tested so far.
2) USB 2.0 devices are not working in USB3.0 ports
3) USB 3.0 devices are working in USB 2.0 ports.
4) hot plug does not work after plugging a USB device into USB 3.0 port and then into a USB 2.0 port (e.g.; my webcam)

So it's far from perfect, but I'm on the right track.


EDIT:

rebuilt kextcache, rebooted and all works flawlessly. I'd like a purely DSDT solution and doesn't need 4 kexts to work, but I'll take it.

I have the same machine Lenovo S30. I successfully installed High Sierra on the computer. However, after I run Multibeast, the system could not recognize my mouse and keyboard. Do you know how to make it work?

@jim2046, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard, CPU and Graphics Card.
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard (Mobo).
