  1. Thank you for the kind answer, kyndder - no pun intended. The issue is the odd behavior when GI is set to yes: not the indefinite spinning pinwheel under the Apple logo as usually happens when graphics fail to load: the boot freezes instead. That's really unusual. Perhaps Fau7i can indeed help me if he has experience with this kind of graphics working in conjunction with Clover UEFI: Chameleon/Legacy Clover is not an option at the moment. All the best!
  2. Hi, folks! Is there any special set of instructions to enable QE/CI for the HD 3000 graphics (from a i7-2600) with Mountain Lion 10.8.3 and a Z77-D3H motherboard using Clover in UEFI mode? I'm using Clover version 17xx (don't know the last two digits) with a MacBookPro8,1 SMBIOS in my config.plist, and recently even deleted all my kexts and install others (patched for 10.8.2) from a link provided elsewhere by Fau7i. With GraphicsInjector=No i get full resolution but no QE/CI, when GraphicsInjector is set to yes, the boot seems to freeze where the desktop should arrive (the pinwheel below the gray apple stops to spin, just like it does on a healthy system when the desktop is about to come, but it just hangs there). Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
  3. Hello, folks! What's the equivalent of darkwake=10 (not zero, ten!) in Clover? This flag - which is in fact passed verbatim to the kernel, it's important to register - is the only way to fix auto sleep in my system. Done with Chameleon, i'd like to fix it as well in Clover UEFI, my bootloader of choice. All the best!
  4. Hi, kyndder! Tried your fixes and some others, yet i'm stuck with 6 P-states, one of them is useless (12, when the minimum for my CPU is 16) and only one turbo state, 36. But it's way better than no PM, so i'll stick with it for now, since, on the bright side of things, i fixed legacy boot for Clover and the wake bug for UEFI boot, so now i can use Clover in either mode i want. All the best! P.S.: it's also reporting 16GB when i have only 8GB installed. Funny. But doesn't really bothers me, as long as it doesn't impair performance.
  5. Max. multiplier is already set to 38 in the config! But i could as well change min. multiplier to 8 (instead of 4) and undervolt to 0 (instead of 2) and add the Turbo key. Will do and report back! All the best!
  6. Hi, kyndder! Amazingly enough, this stress test brought indeed another P-state, but at the bottom! Multiplier of 12. And i remember my workaround (in fact, xpamamadeus') included a "under volt step" flag set to "2". Perhaps that means my CPU will run colder at idle state, and that's not bad (my minimum multiplier with Chameleon+SSDT is 16). So now, MSR dumper report six P-states instead of five. Still not getting the higher turbo states though:the highest turbo state i get is 36, is good, but i know my CPU can reach 38. All the best!
  7. Kyndder, i started this all with Macmini6,2, then 6,1 (because i have an i5 3570K), then iMac 13,1. Clover doesn't load my custom SSDT (generated by Pike's script) with any system definition. I'm using a modded iMac 13,1 profile, but because of this - or despite of this - i have 7 p-states with Chameleon and only 5 (but better than 2!) with Clover UEFI. All the best!
  8. Exactly the procedure i follow, but with a iMac 13,1 profile. Unfortunately, no joy. The upside is, the workaround from xpamamadeus i'm using solved the reboot after wake bug for me with Clover UEFI, and it enables at least one Turbo state, multiplier 36, so my geekbench scores and perceived performance went back to "normal" (normal being what i used to get with iMac 12,2 and no PM, having only 16 and 36 as P-states). All the best!
  9. Hi, Kyndder! It appears Clover r. 1287 is having some grudges with my custom SSDT: it won't load it no matter if i place it in the root of my HDD or in /Clover/ACPI/Patched. Tried set the flags "DropOemSSDT=Yes" and GenerateC and P states to "No", to no avail. Now i got PM with a messy Ivy Bridge PM workaround developed by xpamamadeus, since GenerateIvyStates also doesn't work as it should, and i'm getting five P-States (should be 7, that's what i get with gool ol'Cham + custom SSDT). Is there a way to make my custom SSDT be loaded by Clover? Another issue: since i updated to r. 1287, i cannot anymore boot in legacy mode: the "7" appears, but it never gets to the boot screen. Is there a fix for this? Much appreciated! P.S.: wich you a smooth recovery!
  10. EDIT 2: the fix to HDMI audio also fixed wake from sleep for me!
  11. EDIT: I solved the issue myself! Sort of a facepalm solution: i had this AppleHDA kext from Mirone (the guy really rocks!) and remembered i haven't try it in conjunction with GraphicsEnabler=No and PCIRootUID=0. I don't know which of the flags did the trick, but now HDMI audio works a wonder! The lesson learned: don't exclude any option, the most redundant it seems, without testing it! Anyway, i still need help for the black screen upon wake: any ideas? Thanks again!
  12. Nithy, thanks for answering and sorry it took me so long to answer. The fact is i had already enabled QE/CI for the card before your methods came to my knowledge, simply by adding 0x68F91002 in both ATI5000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext (under AMDCedarRadeonAccelerator) and booting with GraphicsEnabler=Yes (GE=No works but makes the system reports my card as a HD5000). By the way, i think the method i describe is rather similar to your method 1 and i indeed have black screen upon wake from sleep (HDMI monitor). Any known solution? Because i've been trying to solve the HDMI audio issue for a while now, l also already have HDMI audio edits in my DSDT: HDMI appears in both SysPrefs and SysInfo and the sound icon becomes greyed out as soon as i chose HDMI as audio interface, yet i have absolutely no sound output at all. Both with VoodooHDA and a patched AppleHDA (but the latter also fails to enable internal audio anyway). Can you take a look at my DSDT? Here's the link: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=121017 All the best!
  13. The problem is the latest Mountain Lion kernel doesn't support nVidia graphics solutions yet. Stay with Lion, but go get a better kernel for it on Insanelymac. Use Bronzovka's RC8 kernel, and 10.7.5. At the moment, it's the best and most stable setup for AMD hackintoshes. All the best!
  14. Hi, Nithy! Thank you very much more for answering! 1) I'm not sure i understood the question: i thought the device ID for HDMI audio was the same as the card itself (in this case, 0x68f91002). Or is it the device ID shown in IOReg under HDAU? In this case, it's 68 aa. 2) I am really taking a hard time editing it, thank you very much for offering help. How can i send you my dsdt.aml? All the best!
  15. Hi, Nithy! Can you explain how to enable HDMI audio only? My 5450 already works gorgeously through the HDMI port with full 1080p resolution and QE/CI, but i cannot enable audio, and i think i didn't understand the steps needed to install the DSDT patches. Can you reply with a sequential step by step guide for install those patches in a previously unpatched dsdt? Thank you very much, Nithy, and keep up the good work!
  16. It should be a little more: i have a similar rig (same CPU, same RAM and clock speed) and my scores used to hit 11200+ with 10.8.2, and are around 11000-11100 with 10.8.3. Perhaps you he ran GB with Spotlight indexing running, this can easily cut the scores a good 500 points.
  17. Really, fau7i? In my machine, the boot time difference is huge... Best regards!
  18. My AMD hackintosh (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285181-lion-kernel-testing-on-amd-split-in-progress/page__st__220) sleeps and wakes like it should. Many thanks to the uploader!
  19. About HDMI audio, i already followed your "Easy Guide" and got it working, all fine and quite easy like you said. About power management, let's summarize to see if we're understanding each other, Toleda: I have both my 9800GT and HD4000 working at the same time (monitor connected to the HD4000 DVI port). Applied DSDT edits for the HD4000 so i can boot it now from UEFI Clover using both cards with GI=No, using your unplug/replug trick. Also applied the edit to make the 9800 GT show up as a PCI card under System Report. Followed your [Easy Guide] to get the HD4000 HDMI audio working. This process, though, broke automatic sleep which i had before when i was using only the 9800GT. That's my current situation. My current system definition is iMac 12,2 (a Sandy Bridge sysdef, despite having an Ivy Bridge CPU). Now, and correct me if i'm wrong, to get automatic sleep and proper speed step, i'll have to get Ivy Bridge power management. For it, i'll have to 1) inject also the 9800GT via dsdt; 2) change my system definition to mac mini 6,2; 3) use the i5 SSDT available in your Ivy Bridge power management guide. Am i enumerating the steps correctly? Conversely, is it possible for me, despite having an Ivy Bridge CPU and mobo, stay with my iMac 12,2 system definition, use a Sandy Bridge SSDT and have some degree of power management after inject the 9800GT via dsdt? Best regards.
  20. Similar to yours, Toleda, but my discrete is a 9800GT: About using discrete and integrated graphics at the same time: - OSx86 10.8 (Mountain Lion) - InsanelyMac Forum
  21. Yeah, i never got dimming working with any hackintosh, ever... it would be great, but it's nice without it.
  22. Can i use a Sandy Bridge sysdef with a Ivy Bridge SSDT on my i5 3570K, toleda? Will graphics power management work if the answer is yes? Other thing: if i switch to an Ivy Bridge sysdef, will graphics power management work with my dual-card setup and Clover UEFI? Best regards!
  23. Toleda and Kyndder, a question for you both: Will this guide for native Ivy Bridge CPU and GPU management (ML: Native Ivy Bridge CPU and GPU Power Management - Page 17) work with the dual-card setup we're discussing here, booting from UEFI Clover? In the case it works, would it bring the power management goodies from real macs to our machines (like reducing screen brightness after some time of idleness, then screen going to sleep as set is SysPrefs, then computer going automatically to sleep)? I actually used to have automatic sleep with single-card setup (only the 9800 GT enabled) booting from BIOS clover - but no brightness reduction before monitor sleep, i never got this with hackintoshes - without no DSDT or SSDT injection at all: only GI=Yes. Switching to dual-card broke this both in BIOS and UEFI modes (i know that there's a wake bug with UEFI Clover, but my point does not relate to this). I'm trying to figure out how to bring it back, at least with BIOS mode, but an optimal solution would work for both modes, since i'm confident the wake bug will be solved soon. Best regards!
  24. I don't have words to thank you, Toleda: this solved my problem, despite the fact i'm using DVI at the moment, not HDMI. Out of curiosity, i'll test also the VGA connector to see if it also needs this trick. It's kind of an un-ellegant workaround, but if it works, it works, and i'll be happy. Now i'll test my system performance to see if there are gains, as there were for you, that justify this annoyance of unplugging and plugging again (besides the stretched boot screen, opposed to the smooth resolution i get with legacy boot). If not, i suppose i'll get back to BIOS boot until a better solution is devised. Best regards!
  25. Thank you very much for the answer, kyndder! I'll try that first and report back. Thanks! X being the total number of ports (9800GT+HD4000) or only from the HD4000? If i add CsmVideoDxe-64.efi, i get a blank screen. With PatchVBios=Yes, i get stuck with a blinking cursor, and in both cases the boot menu never appears (same issues Toleda had, i suppose). So i remove both, since i don't really care for the stretched menu. But the issue of my graphics not working at all, even with a proven DSDT fix, that is really disheartening. I'll do the tests and report back ASAP. Thank you very much! UPDATE: No luck: the heavy artifacts, as described, persist. Thank you very much.
