Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

System: manufacturer/model
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
System: HP ProBook 4540s
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

1. Can't control brightlight of screen.

Haswell Brightness Fix:

You will need to extract all DSDT/SSDT from Linux. Your GFX0 device is in one of the SSDTs not DSDT and to get a proper disassembly of your DSDT (and the SSDT that has GFX0) you will need all of them. They are available in /sys/firmware/acpi/tables and /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/dynamic. Place them on USB for transfer to OS X.

Place all SSDT/DSDT in a single directory and use a recent build of iasl to disassemble:
http://www.tonymacx86.com/attachmen...5-buggy-dsdt-asus-q501la-help-needed-iasl.zip
Code:
cd "to directory where you placed all SSDT/DSDT"
iasl -da *.aml
Then search the resulting *.dsl so you know where GFX0 is defined. Search for "Device (GFX0)"...

Laptop repo: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch
Apply: "Rename GFX0 to IGPU" (to both DSDT and the SSDT that has your GFX0 device)
Apply: "Brightness Fix (Haswell)" to the file (SSDT or DSDT) with GFX0 device definition.
install: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Backlight

Place patched DSDT.aml in /Extra/dsdt.aml. Place patched SSDT in /Extra/ssdt-1.aml (assuming you have already generated SSDT.aml for CPU). Obviously different locations for Clover (EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched).

Result: Working brightness slider in SysPrefs->Displays (mapping of keyboard keys is a separate issue), possible LID sleep, and IGPU power management.


2. No keyboard backlight
With my U430 it worked automatically. Yours may be handled by DSDT methods. You could debug your DSDT with ACPIDebug: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Debug. I would start by instrumenting the EC queries to see if one is called when you press they key combo that is used to adjust/toggle the key backlight.

3. No Audio card driver
can't find codec to make AppleHDA, now I am using VoodooHDA

Vender:8086, Device:8C20, 8 Series/C220 Series Chipset High Definition Audio Controller
Audio: Best result with patched AppleHDA. Google 'patch AppleHDA guide'. Search for suitable AppleHDA or patch it yourself. Apply appropriate DSDT patches.

DSDT patches you need for AppleHDA: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch
Apply: "Audio Layout 12" (change layout-id from 12 to the layout-id used by the patched AppleHDA)
Apply: "IRQ Fix"

4. No Card Reader (RTS5227 PCI Express Card Reader)
A common problem (same on my U430), but I rarely use a card reader, so haven't looked into it. There is VoodooSDHC.kext, but it probably needs work.

5. Can't shutdown completely.
Did you implement power management correctly?

It could also be DSDT/SSDT issue...

I use Ubuntu. The files are just part of the file system, so you can just use 'cp' in Terminal.

I created a Recovery HD with "Recovery Partition Creator 3.8". Then my hackintosh can't recognized Bluetooth, even check the system information, there is no any information about Bluetooth.

Does the Recovery HD will affect drivers loading??

The recent activities:
1. create recovery partition
2. extract dsdt/ssdt from Ubunto 14 Live CD ( in ubuntu, I clicked the bluetooth application )

Now, can't recognized bluetooth any more. Would you give me some cues?

BTW: When It worked, I can see bluetooth information at USB section. Now It disappeared.


Help me SOS!
