Thanks for this forum, this is by far the cleanest and easiest way to install Mac OS. I have a laptop with the following specs:
i7 4710MQ with HM87 chip
8 GB RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4600 Mobile
NVIDIA GTX 860M (disabled as there are no web drivers for it in Mojave)
The laptop is a Clevo W355SS.
Booting in legacy because of the graphics artifarcts glitch, screen goes crazy until I wake the laptop by pressing the power button. I'd really want to use UEFI but the graphics glitch can only be solved by enabling CSM, and my BIOS doesn't have that option
Using SMBIOS: MacBookPro11,2.
Everything works great, however USB doesn't work and the Intel Graphics don't get injected, even when it's enabled in Clover. Because of that, it only shows 7 MB Vid Mem, and the transparency in the OS is disabled. This is using the Clover Folder Chipset series 5/6/7/8 Notebook folders config.plist.
However, if I use Rehabman's config.plist for laptops with Intel 4600 HD Mobile, the graphics get injected, but the PC can't reboot, when rebooting the laptop it just hangs on a black screen and the vents start to go very loud, and I need to reboot the laptop with the power button to get it to shut down.
The funny thing is that when using different config.plist, two things are mutually exclusive:
When using your config.plist
for Notebook series 8:
- the laptop boots and reboots perfectly, audio works
- Webcam/Bluetooth/USB doesn't work however when USB works the rest works too.
I'm pretty sure your config.plist is the best one for my laptop. Boot/reboot works perfectly.
- but Intel doesn't get injected and the USB doesn't work
When using other config.plist's:
- The laptop's graphics work
- shut down works
- USB doesn't,
- Reboot doesn't.
USB doesn't work, only when selecting SMBIOS MacBookPro15,1 the USB works, but then my webcam (BisonCam Pro) doesn't work, and Bluetooth doesn't work, but with your config.plist the laptop works perfectly, better then all other configs, except Bluetooth and webcam don't work,USB and Graphics don't get injected.
However strangely, when the 4600 mobile acceleration works, reboots stop working, when the 4600 mobile acceleration doesn't work, reboots is working.
Things I've done in Clover:
- Inject Intel
- USB injection + the kexts USB Inject All, Lilu, WhateverGreen
- platform id 0a260006
- also tried platform id 0a260004
- IntelGFX 04168086, also tried 04128086
- Also tried IntelGFX 04128086
So I've basically tried every setting in all the config.plists I've tried, even started a clean config.plist, but still in your config.plist the graphics don't get injected no matter what I adjust in Clover, and in the other config.plists I tried, graphics always gets injected no matter what settings but then the reboot proces doesn't work. I suspect the only way to get graphics, reboot process and USB working together when using your config.plist is patching the DSDT? However I can't get my head around the process.
I extracted my DSDT.aml with Patchmatic, maybe you could take a look? Greatly appreciate your work man, really nice how many people you help out here on daily basis.
EDIT: attached a DSDT I found, where all USB ports, webcam and Bluetooth is working together with your config.plist. The only thing not working when using this DSDT and your config is the 4600 graphics card. Maybe this can help? When using this DSDT the only thing not working is graphics acceleration/brightness. (not recommended using other DSDT's, I know, but it's the same chipset)
