How to Extract DSDT/SSDTs

An EliteMacx86 Exclusive Guide - This guide covers extraction of ACPI sets, (commonly known as DSDT and SSDTs) using Clover.

Overview


Extracting DSDT/SSDTs is very easy and has minimal requirements. To extract the DSDT/SSDT, follow the steps below.

For Clover
  1. Install Clover Bootloader either on your System Drive or any USB.
  2. Boot into Clover, when at Clover welcome screen, Press F4 to extract the ACPI files. It might take few minutes.
  3. Boot to Mac.
  4. You can find the extracted ACPI files in : EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin
  5. You can patch your DSDT and SSDTs.

Notes :
  • Sometimes it looks like it has stuck but the process runs in the background so wait for the process to complete.
  • The extracted files are the native/unpatched ACPI files. You'll need to patch these.

I have Installed Clover Bootloader on Windows System Drive.

Then I Boot into Clover,
when at Clover welcome screen, I Pressed F4 to extract the ACPI files and it seems to be stuck here... not sure how long it should take as it has been over 15 minutes of waiting.
