Hi,

This isn't my first hackintosh but I must admit i'm kind of stuck. I attached my EFI. I followed the OpenCore Guide.

I used at first like recommeded by the guide 0x3EA50009 but I had the feeling I was stuck in verbose mode because of a black screen. The last verbose line was half printed, it felt like it.

I went on and tried 0x3EA50009 but added device-id 0x01234567 and I ended up there

IOControlUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, ...

Any help would be very appreciated 

Also, when OpenCore guide mentions a quirk for Dell, I should assume it's true for Alienware too, right?

I finally got it ! There was an hidden shortcut in Windows to enable Optimus. Now my laptop built-in monitor is driven by IGPU it works flawless.

 

2 Problems:

 

#1

I was not able to get the Keyboard to work though :(

VoodooPS2Controller: Working trackpad (but very laggy), no keyboard

Voodool2c: Working trackpad (butter smooth), no keyboard :( 

 

#2

During boot, the monitor brightness go very low. I cannot control the brightness (slider makes no effect). However, 5 minutes later, the brightness comes back fine and the brightness slider works.

Thanks a ton! -igfxblr alone was enough to fix the trouble ! Should I include the 2 flags anyway?

 

No luck for the keyboard. I attached some Windows Device Manager screenshot that might add relevent information

No effect either :(

By the way, by further investigating (DEBUG version of PS2Controtroller), I was able to notice that with 2 specific keys it does receive message. I installed Karabiner Elements EventViewer and it seems the only key it's able to catch is Fn+F11 (which is supposed to disable Touchpad if I were in Windows).

 

Here is what it logs

 

type:down            HID usage:7,224      name:{"key_code":"left_control"}                             misc:flags left_control
type:down            HID usage:7,227      name:{"key_code":"left_command"}                             misc:flags left_command,left_control
type:up              HID usage:7,227      name:{"key_code":"left_command"}                             misc:flags left_control
type:up              HID usage:7,224      name:{"key_code":"left_control"}                             misc:

Using Ubuntu, I turned off my USB Controller and noticed the keyboard stopped working but not the trackpad. My keyboard seems to be USB driven.

I will try to do the USB port mapping, it's just going to be harder since XhciPortLimit is broken in Big Sur 11.3

I would like to add:

 

It seems Mac OS doesn't see the keyboard at all :( See images

If I remove these unused ports, I'm scared I'm disabling the keyboard port
