Sierra 10.12.6 stop booting and not even the installer USD flashdrive works

Recommended Posts

For years Sierra worked like a cinch, after installing it from a Vanilla Olarila 10.12.6 USB stick ... but today, it started refusing to boot all the sudden ...


AppleKeyStore Errors make it went into kernel panic, but the problem is now worst, because even the USB Sierra installer is rebooting when I try to run it from Clover!!!


I've used an old Yosemite stick in another hard drive and installed Yosemite, and it's working fine, but Sierra, for some reason REFUSES to boot ...


I've tried everything, disabling hard drives, just booting without anything but the USB stick ... always the same problem


and now even using just the USB stick to boot into Sierra, fails!!! with a reboot!!!


My configuration, is an ASROCK H61M-VG3, the motherboard doesn't have any video, so I am using an ATI Radeon 6870HD, and 8Gb DD3 RAM ... recognized as 1600 by Apple but the UEFI recognizes it as 1333...

2.59 GHz Intel Core i5(Dual core CELERON)


working fine until yesterday, the only kext, I installed was VOODOOHDA ... that's it ... but it worked fine with it for a week ... so it's weird it can be the culprit ...

Thanks [ref]MaLd0n[/ref], !!! That and to successfully deselect the IGPU Monitor in the UEFI settings did the trick!!! Apparently that mode makes the system load the INTEL kexts and then it goes into PANIC!!! BTW I am configuring audio, Hope the injected patches work on ALC662 ...

Hi [ref]MaLd0n[/ref],


Thank you for your files ... BTW I added your DSDT.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched, and I opened the BOOT Options and is pointing to DSDT.aml ...


Am I doing something wrong, where can I check logs to see if it's actually loading it? It seems not to ...


I checked CLOVER logs and it seems to load the DSDT.aml

The thing is nothing is recognized as a sound device in Sound Settings ... the list is empty ... :wallbash

I just tried with all layouts that are related to the ALC662, and I mounted EFI and copied both CLOVER and BOOT there, so now my mounted EFI has all the kexts, including AppleALC 1.4.1 and Lilo 1.3.8.


Besides the DSDT.aml


and

I tested all layouts in Clover Configurator, and NOT a single one worked!!!


As my AUDIO hardware is recognized by Hackintool under PCI as Intel 6 Series/C200, I was wondering if that could be a reason why it's not working ...

DCPI Manager also recognizes it as an Intel 6 Series/C200 device 1C20 and under status it doesn't see it ... it just displays 2 network interfaces, the Realtek 8165E/8111E-VL and my Huawei LTE modem(I use to connect to my ISP). The Graphics Card also isn't there ... it's display under the PCI List, but not under the Status TAB. The PCI list also shows the HDMI audio device, on the Radeon 6870HD card, also not detected.

I noticed my hackintosh is booting from your Olarila sierra version usb, as it's the only way it doesn't give an error, therefore, what I did was to open Clover Configurator, mount the EFI on the USB and tried with all the layouts available for the ALC662, however none worked, then I also added your DSDT.aml to the EFI partition on the USB drive, and that also didn't work, I checked logs with bdmesg and it seems to load the DSDT the changes and correctly configure the layout ids I saved, in each attempt.

THe HDMI is there, the AUDIO layout id is also saved and loaded

I Removed AppleHDADisabler.kext from S/L/E and moved it to Backup Extensions just in case but the sound still doesn't work .. the weird thing is VoodooHDA made it work ...

I also placed the AppleHDA.kext under EFI/Clover/kexts/Other, on the USB drive EFI ... and still no sound ...

The weird thing is under VoodooHDA it worked fine, except it misconfigured by itself ... all the time ...

This is from a Controllers.plist is it possible to insert it into Clover's config.plist?

I did that with all layout-ids I've found in Resources for the ALC662 ...

5,7,11,12,13,15,16,17


None worked ... some worked for a while only with my USB Headset ... the others did nothing, I made sure AppleALC was on the EFI and loading before AppleHDA ...
