    Your laptop uses the Realtek ALC268 audio codec. You need to try each of these Layout ID's to see which works with your system. 0x100004, 0x100100, 0x100202, 0x100203 layout 1-11, 13-21, 27-33, 35, 40, 45, 55, 58, 66, 76, 88, 93, 99, 100, 127, 188 As you can see this is frequently used audio...

    Help please! Prohibition symbol when booting

    I would try the following, before cloning the drive. Boot into the Clone drive. Get hold of a spare USB pen drive, any size. Format it to HFS+ with Disk Utility, name it what ever you like 'Clover' being the obvious name. Install Clover for UEFI booting only and in the ESP. Do not worry...

    MSI MPG z390 Gaming Plus Help

    I have attached a copy of your motherboard manual, in English. DMVT - see bottom of page 44, you need to enable IGD Multi-Monitor for this option to appear in the bios. You may need to save and exit and renenter the bios, so you can change the Integrated Graphics Share Memory from 64mb to 128mb...

    Endless battles with EFI have me battered

    Delays in the shutting down process may be caused by the 'My Passport' drive connected to USB3 port (SS01). Unplug the My Passport drive and see if the shutdown process changes. I can see you only have one Bluetooth active in your IOReg. What does the Bluetooth Report in System Information...

    Black screen after Catalina update, partially solved

    For HEVC you need both the Intel GPU and the AMD GPU working correctly, with full acceleration, which your AMD card doesn't have. As shown by the fact it is only showing 4MB. The Setings for Hardware encoding/decoding/Acceleration with your Ivy Bridge CPU and R7 370 should be as follows...

    Catalina install error on MSI Z390 + i9 9900K

    As I said, install ALL of the kexts from your /CLOVER/kexts/Other folder in to your /Library/Extensions folder. But keep a copy of FakeSMC.kext and only this kext in the /CLOVER/kexts/Other folder. All the other kexts should only be installed to /Library/Extensions. Thre should be no...

    Help with Catalina on Dell Optiplex 3020

    Yes it is possible, anything is possible. If only one app is not working as it should, and the rest does work, it usually means the defective app needs updating. The USB ports need to be activated correctly using a USBPorts.kext or SSDT-UIAC.aml. This again is a normal requirement for a...

    Help with Catalina on Dell Optiplex 3020

    I have gone through the attached CLOVER folder and removed a few options that may be causing you issues. I have removed Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext and Whatevergreen.kext, you don't need them when first installing macOS. Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext can be added to your /Library/Extensions folder...

    Catalina install error on MSI Z390 + i9 9900K

    If you have installed all the kexts to /Library/Extensions then you can remove them from the /CLOVER/kexts/Other folder. I normally leave a copy of FakeSMC.kext in the /CLOVER/kext/Other folder, as a just in case. Here is a guide to how Sleep and Hibernation work on a Hack and a real Mac -...

    Black screen after Catalina update, partially solved

    The 4 MB means your system is using the wrong framebuffer for your AMD card, and that acceleration is not working. But if you are happy with the way it works, that is your call. The reason the R7 370 card is recognised as HD 7xxx is because it is using the Radeon default framebuffer, nothing...

    So working with your CLOVER_wifiOK folder I have made the following changes: Deleted /CLOVER/kexts/Other - AtherosWiFiInjector.kext Added /CLOVER/kexts/Other - AirPortAtheros40.kext (kext removed from Mojave & Catalina, if you are running High Sierra you may not need this kext) Added...
