Hi to all. After the installation of mojave using multibeast I checked by mistake "nullcpupowermanagement" option.
I need to re enable power management on my build; how can I do that?
I checked for nullcpupowermanagement kext on my S/L/E and inside my EFI but I hadn't found it.
Thanks as usual, Antonio

Remove NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from /Library/Extensions.
See macOS Native CPU/IGPU Power Management
Thanks for your answer BreBo, I do this but nothing changed. I tried also to find another copy of this kext in other directories or in the efi partition but with no success.
power management is still not working

Did you rebuild your caches after removing it?

yesbuffaloduets, thanks for your advice.
I booted using -f argument and then in terminal I run those commands:
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
and
sudo touch /Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
but nothing changed

Trying to change clover boot option I discovered that my config.plist file is corrupted; there is an unexpected EOF so my confine.plist ends with those lines:

<key>SMBIOS</key>
<dict>
<key>BiosVersion</key>
<string>XXXXXXXXXXXXXX</string>
<key>ProductName</key>
<string>iMac18,3</string>
<key>SerialNumber</key>
<string>C


Maybe that is were a relationship between the two problems?
how can I get a fully working config.plist file?
Note_ in the "about this Mac" dialog box I can read a serial number despite of the fact that config.plist file ends without a valid serial number key
