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

  1. Install Clover Bootloader either on your System Drive or the Bootable 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.
