How to Setup Correct SMBIOS [Clover/OpenCore]
This guide covers setting up a Correct SMBIOS for Intel and AMD CPUs on macOS using Clover and OpenCore. By following this guide, you'll be able to set up the correct SMBIOS on your system using Clover or OpenCore Bootloader.

What is SMBIOS?


System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) is the premier standard for delivering management information via system firmware. Since its release in 1995, the widely implemented SMBIOS standard has simplified the management of more than two billion client and server systems.

On Apple computers, the SMBIOS is stored in its firmware and it contains several important data such as Product Model, Board-ID, Firmware Features, Serial Numbers, and much more. This information is crucial for macOS as SMBIOS can impact a lot of functionality under macOS.

Why selecting the Correct SMBIOS is important?


macOS is a vendor (Apple) specific operating system that is designed for Apple computers and its firmware contains the SMBIOS data. But since Non-Apple computers have spoofed hardware (for allowing macOS to run), these computers don't have the Apple firmware, but their own vendor and model based firmware. Due to this, these computers lack the required SMBIOS data that Apple expects and therefore we need to use the same (or at least the closest settings) in the form of SMBIOS settings in the config.plist.

Every Apple computer uses a unique SMBIOS definition to tell the macOS how to communicate with the hardware resources such as CPU Power Management, Graphics, USB, and Encoding. The SMBIOS can even affect your Apple ID when activating iMessage or FaceTime. The same rule applies when installing macOS on Non-Apple computers. For having the best experience and better compatibility you need to choose the closet SMBIOS to match your hardware specs.

Selecting a Correct SMBIOS


When selecting a correct SMBIOS, you need to understand that other than just using a SMBIOS that nearly matches your CPU is not sufficient. Other hardware and factors matter when selecting the correct SMBIOS for your system. Several factors can affect how your system performs in terms of hardware features, functioning, and performance as the SMBIOS controls and determines the CPU Power Management, Graphics management, USB function, and many other crucial functions.

QUICK INFO:

The main factors to consider when selecting a SMBIOS depend on the following

FactorsNotes
CPU
  • This includes the CPU lineup such as Mobile, Desktop, HEDT/Server.
  • This can affect Sleep/Wake function and overall system stability.
  • Depending on the CPU Generation, it determines whether you can use Apple's XCPM or not. See CPU Power Management for more information.
  • Systems running AMD CPUs can safely ignore this.
GPU
  • Mainly affected functions are GPU Power Management (AGPM), Display Output Support (AGDP), Sleep (AGDC), and a few others.
  • CPUs without IGPU will have features like Quick Look broken if the SMBIOS expects an IGPU. An example is iMac SMBIOS. For Systems without an IGPU, it is better to use iMacPro and MacPro SMBIOS.
  • This also affects the DRM functionality. See DRM on macOS for more information.
USB
  • Certain SMBIOS have their own USB map which may attach to your hardware and can cause USB issues. See USB Mapping for more information.
  • Skylake and newer SMBIOS will also require a USBX device to fix the USB current output. See Fixing USB Ports for more information.
MemoryCertain SMBIOS supports ECC Memory. If you're using a System with an ECC Memory, you must select a SMBIOS that supports ECC Memory.
macOS SupportEspecially relevant for older hardware.
macOS may have support for the older CPU. However, it does not support the old SMBIOS when used on a new macOS version. For example, Arrandale CPUs are still supported by the OS but no IGPU support since 10.13.6.

What SMBIOS to Choose?
There are two approaches when it comes to selecting the best SMBIOS for your hardware.
  1. The most common way is to match the exact or closest SMBIOS to your CPU.
  2. Select the best or closest SMBIOS to match your GPU, even though this method is not widely used by many users but sometimes it has some benefits to avoid certain issues related to the GPU problems, especially when you are using an unlisted CPU.
The first method is widely used by many users simply because it is the easiest method to choose the SMBIOS, making sure the macOS runs smoothly and with the advantage of the CPU’s Power Management and SpeedStep technology.

NOTES:

iMacPro1,1 and MacPro7,1

  • iMacPro1,1 and MacPro7,1 are the only SMBIOS that supports dGPU to handle all the workload including background rendering and other tasks that the IGPU can handle.
  • When choosing any of these two SMBIOS, you'll most likely need to fix the Power Management and Sleep/Wake function if the hardware doesn't match this SMBIOS. Examples are HEDT/Server and AMD.
  • Requires a Polaris, Vega, or Navi GPU to work properly.
  • MacPro7,1 requires macOS Catalina or newer.
  • When using MacPro7,1 SMBIOS, you need to use RestrictEvents to fix the memory errors. See Fixing memory errors for more information.
Macmini
  • Mac mini SMBIOS only uses Mobile CPU, which doesn't match the Desktop hardware. Due to this, we highly discourage the use of a Macmini SMBIOS on Desktop hardware unless you're using Intel NUC and any other SFF System or AIO Desktops with a Mobile CPU and no built-in Display.
iMac
  • Systems with no IGPU or IGPU disabled (including AMD CPUs) should use either iMacPro or MacPro SMBIOS as Apple always assumes that an IGPU is present when using iMac SMBIOS.
  • AIO Desktops with built-in display (usually LVDS/DP) should use iMac SMBIOS.


What's the Best Method to select SMBIOS?
Generally, our recommendations for selecting a SMBIOS are quite simple and it basically involves hardware matching with the SMBIOS.

Depending on your System specification,

STEP 1: Find the right CPU Codename and tier (See Apple SMBIOS List Table below) as closely as possible.
STEP 2: Match with either IGPU only or DGPU SMBIOS.
STEP 3: Finalize the SMBIOS depending on a few other factors such as the exact CPU/GPU match and macOS Support

How to add SMBIOS to config.plist?
Here comes the most important step which is to add SMBIOS to your config.plist. Depending on the Bootloader you use, either Clover or OpenCore, follow the instructions below.

1. Mount your ESP.
