Just for clarification.
After injecting CPUType = 0x0606 in Clover, i5-5200U could be recognized as Core i5 with proper frequency in "About this Mac", otherwise showing Unknown in Processor part.
Still no cpu power management, and ACPI_SMC_Platform.kext was still loaded.
After we used a modified version of ssdtPRGen script to generate SSDT.aml, X86Platform.kext and X86PlatformShim.kext are loaded, and IOPPF: XCPM Mode message was shown in console.
I added Broadwell's CPUs information and Apple's new Board-IDs to ssdtPRGen script, so I think CPU power management should be fine.
But, yeah, Clover needs an update to inject "proper" cpu type.
Can you help me get past the KP? I set DVMT=64 by EFI Shell, use ig-platform-id=0x16160002, InjectIntel=True, FakeID=Null. Can you send me your current config.plist?
In my case, if DVMT is 64MB, there should be no panic because BDW fb kext only check if DVMT>34MB. Can you post your panic picture or report? And could you verify in Windows that DVMT is truely 64MB? It can be found under resolution->advanced.
Here is info:
Total Available: 3839MB
Deidcated Video Memory: 0MB
System Video Memory: 0MB
I followed this (actually this is sontrg's laptop)
setup_var 0x18C 0x2
that is my laptop actually. Unless you have exactly the same machine as mine, do not try those command. Otherwise you may damage your BIOS. The correct way is to extract your BIOS and look inside and find the right address to make the change.
You will find that dedicated VRAM=64MB after you do it correctly.
