SUCCESS! + Haswell power management under 10.8.5

Question

Hi Niresh!

 

Good news! I've got 10.8.5 to install on my System76 Haswell laptop! I'm very impressed with 10.8.5 - its the best Hackintosh distro I've tried, and the only one to work with my machine so far. I shall write a short guide on how to install it on a laptop like mine soon.

 

All my hardware, except for my wifi chipset (which I knew was unsupported by OSX) works! The big prob now is power management. My laptop's CPU runs at 14 degrees C normally under Linux but it averages about 58 degrees under 10.8.5. I used the xpcm-free kernel to install and I've extracted my DSDT under Linux and compiled it into asl fine then copied that into /Extra/DSDT.aml under OSX but that hasn't fixed the power management (after fixing perms and rebooting).

 

Is there any chance of me getting power management to work well under 10.8.5? Do I need a patched kernel or to use a different SMBIOS?

 

Finally, do you know of a good guide to fixing DSDT/asl files, if thats what I need to do?

 

Great work on the distro, but unfortunately I won't be able to use OSX properly unless I get the power management working - it doesn't feel healthy for my computer or energy bills without it!

 

Thanks!

Hi Deepak

 

Thanks for your suggestion and sorry for the delay in replying - I've been at work the last few days and not had the time to try your idea until today and I wanted to try it before I replied.

 

I had already come across and bookmarked the ssdtPRGen script but hadn't got round to trying it but now I have and unfortunately it doesn't seem to have made any difference. The guide you linked to said you should run it like

 

./ssdtPRGen.sh CPUMODEL MAXFREQ TDP

 

but that produces exactly the same .asl file as produced when I run it without any arguments so it would seem to me that the script auto-detects your CPU and its settings now. I copied the .asl file it created on my desktop to /Extra/SSDT.asl, deleted /S/L/E/NullCPUPM and then booted with the DropSSDT=Yes flag but my CPU temp still averages 50/60 degrees on idle.

 

I've written my Niresh / Gazelle Pro installation guide on paper so I'll type that up soon but it'd be better to be able to post it with working PM instructions from the start.

 

I'd like to hear from any other Niresh 10.8.5 users running on Haswell/i7 - have you managed to get your PM working? If so, how?

 

Thanks!

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
