Cpus=1 but with proper SMBIOS?

Question

I am a (older) student trying to finish a couple of courses and really need to be using at least El Capitan to do that.

I have quite old hardware but it ran great right up to and including Yosemite.

I do not have the cash to build a new system just yet so this is all I have.

Specs are i3-530 on a GA-H55M-S2H board with an ASUS Geforce GT640 2048MB

 I've now got nearly everything working except I can only boot in with cpus=1 which makes it very slow and constantly crashes the apps I need to finish my coursework on for next week

Any suggestions please?

Craig’s Mac.ioreg.zip

kexts from clover.zip

config.plist

Most of the 1st gen cpus had cpupm but ur might be not working properly.

try this

<key>AppleIntelCPUPM</key>
		<true/>

or use Nullcpupowermanagement.kext

also you can clean your config.plist a bit ,anything with# u can just delete.

good hack

Thank you DMOS - I really appreciate your answer and I was wondering if NULLCPUPowerManagement was possibly an option but alas no joy! :-(

 

nullcpu not working ? or u want native pm ?

you can use aicpum patch or use clover patch and make an SSDT to test

Thanks again DMOS!

I tried putting the NULLCPUPowerManagement kext in EFI>CLOVER>Kexts>Other but still ended up needing cpus=1 to boot.

Do you think I should try both at the same time?
