*** OcQuirks / FwRuntimeServices Experiment: Conclusion ***
As a follow-up to the original post describing this experiment, I'm happy to say that TEST 4 works on my system even from the NVMe SSD. This is, so far, the only combination of parameters that works universally across USB, SATA, Thunderbolt, and NVMe PCIe (on my system).
We may finally have a viable alternative to OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000. But let's wait for additional user feedback.
Attached ZIP contains both:
To test this on your system -- for Clover v5xxx only:
Please ensure you have another working EFI folder to boot from in case these drivers do not work.
- Mount EFI partition of macOS SSD.
- Move or delete existing memory fix driver from CLOVER/drivers/UEFI folder.
- Copy the two new files into the CLOVER/drivers/UEFI folder.
- Ensure that EmuVariableUefi.efi is present in that folder.
- Ensure that slide=0 is present in config.plist --> Boot Arguments.

There are several reasons for moving to OcQuirks / FwRuntimeServices in the short term, and subsequently to OpenCore itself in the medium term.just a quick question
and I'm sure you explained it somewhere...though I can't find it!
what is the benefit of *** OcQuirks / FwRuntimeServices Experiment: Conclusion *** over OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000?
I know someone said that OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000 was deemed negative by its programmer
but what physical benefits do I get from the alternative?
-better memory timings?
Looks like my iTunes was an old @me.com and I never realized.... but even after signing out of everything with my Apple ID, the system still wont let me change the password to the @me.com account so I can't get in... funny enough the @me.com email address is under my main Apple ID account as a way to reach me... "It just works" right? lolMy iTunes Music Store account is different from my iCloud account. So I have to login to them with separate IDs and passwords. It sounds as if the same is true for you. Are you getting an error about incorrect login ID or password?
Also try this:
- Launch the new Music app.
- From the Account menu, select Sign out.
- Then Sign In again using the old iTunes Music Store login ID and password.
