Hello everyone,
I have a small problem with a High Sierra installation on an Optiplex 780 (Q9650 / 3.00GHz, GeForce 310M). I installed without much problem and it works (graphics card, usb, Firewire card, I would see the sound after).
 
My concern is that when I do update 10.13.2, mac osx reboot before updating! (on the option Mas osx update in Clover).
 
I installed Clover UEFI on the EFI partition and I still have access to version 10.13.0.
 
An idea ? :)
 
Bruno

Too big for the 10MB upload limit.

Do not you have a Hackintosh with Sierra 10.12.6 ???
From 10.12.6 S/L/E...:
AMDRadeonX3000.kext
AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle
IOAccelerator2D.plugin
IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext
... and replace them in HS! Rebuild Cache!

 

I installed the kexts from my 10.12.6 to my optiplex 755 sff running 10.13.2 and im still not getting qe/ci.  One strange thing is, the device id is shown as different from clover bootloader than it shows under DPCIManager.  Could that be a reason?

Old version Lilu no longer works under 10.13.2 and causes KP's.
Update on last Release AppleALC and Lilu !!!

I do not use FakeID in the Clover.

I use the DSDT patch for my HD5450 and these settings in the Clover:

Hi MacPeet, 

 

I did not see your answer and I came to put the solution;) Which is exactly what you say :)
It is necessary to put the last version of Lilu (1.2.1 to date) and the last of AppleALC. By cons I have a GeForce 310 M (I know it's old but it's recovery). The ID is 0x0a66, I must also patch the DSDT? I used a DSDT from the first post without the HD5440 patch. Normally it seems to work I have PC Partner GeForce 310 M as recognized.
 
Thank you for your answer ;)
Bruno

@Macpeet thanks for the feedback but I tried multiple things and could never get full qe/ci on high sierra 10.13.2. I'm now on Sierra 10.12.6 with full graphics acceleration. One issue I'm having is that after computer wakes up from sleep, it restarts after a few seconds. Not sure why that happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,
I have a small problem with a High Sierra installation on an Optiplex 780 (Q9650 / 3.00GHz, GeForce 310M). I installed without much problem and it works (graphics card, usb, Firewire card, I would see the sound after).
 
My concern is that when I do update 10.13.2, mac osx reboot before updating! (on the option Mas osx update in Clover).
 
I installed Clover UEFI on the EFI partition and I still have access to version 10.13.0.
 
An idea ? :)
 
Bruno

 

I have successfully updated to Mac OS 10.13.2 without any issues. Just downloaded latest combo update from App store, restarted the computer and every thing is work as it was earlier.

So, I'm going to attempt a High Sierra upgrade on my two Dell E8400 3 Ghz Hackintoshes, both with 512 mb Raedon 5450s... one with 4 mb RAM (media server), the other with 8 mb (wife's daily computer).

 

So, if I understand what's in this thread, I can upgrade to High Sierra from the App Store if I update to the latest version of Clover (already on the EFI partition), move my all my kexts to /Other, and replace my combined Lilu/AppleALC kext with the latest separate Lilu and ALC kexts? And move my vanilla AppleHDA from S/L/E to /Other?

 

Right now, I have AppleIntel1000e, FakeSMC, and USB_injector all in /10.12, and a combined Lilu/AppleALC kext (1.1.0) in /Other. For High Sierra, I should move ALL kexts to /Other, and replace the combined audio kext with Lilu 1.2.1 and the latest Apple ALC (1.2.2), then I can update from the App Store? 

 

Have I captured it? Thanks for any advice and guidance from those who have made this transition. I am currently at 10.12.3 on both machines.

@I managed to upgrade with AppleALC, AppleIntelE1000, FakeSMC, Lilu and USBInjectAll in the 10.3 folder. I think you can put the same thing in Other (I just have FakeSMC). It takes the latest version of AppleALC and Lilu otherwise it does not work. I got the information a post up by MacPeet because I was not there either.

 

 

@Mac Peet

Hi, I ended up being able to install High Sierra (fresh install of the High Sierra image) directly in version 10.3.2 with a bootable USB key. After a few attempts I have a config.plist which boot with the video card AND the sound (before it was or the video card with a config or the sound :)).
 
By cons, I have a problem, the boot is very slow. He slowed down when he injects the sound (see screenshot). Is this normal or did I miss something?
 
Another small detail before my Firewire card was in the system report correctly. Now I only have pci8086,3a02 - AHCI controller written in the hardware part - PCI. Is there a way to fix that?
 
If you had time, could you see if my config.plist is perfect? After a lot of attempts it works but I do not know if it is well optimized. As a reminder, I have a Q9650, 8Mb RAM, Geforce 310 M + Firewire card (I do not know the brand).
 
thank you in advance

Okay, I'm holding off attempting High Sierra for the moment in favor of trying to update my two 10.12.3 Optiplex 780s to 10.12.6. I already had the full installer downloaded. On rig one, I ran the update from the applications folder, the rig restarted, the installer ran, the rig restarted, and the update was complete.

 

On rig two, I did the same thing, but on restart I just got a blinking cursor... no updater launched. So, I restarted and pressed F12 for boot options, selected the hard drive, and Clover gave me two options: Boot macOS from <hard drive> and Boot Clover from EFI. I chose to book macOS from <hard drive>, but it came up 10.12.3 with no changes. Does anyone have any suggestions for what is wrong and how I can move forward with the update?

I hope I understood you correctly.

Thanks, MacPeet, but that's my issue. I'm not seeing "Install macOS from..." on reboot into Clover. I'm only seeing "Boot macOS from..." and "Boot Clover from EFI." Choosing "Boot Clover from EFI" just brings me back to the Clover boot screen. So, something is wonky somewhere...

All good now, MacPeet. I copied my entire EFI folder from Rig One to the EFI partition on Rig Two, restored the config.plist for Rig Two, and restarted. Ran the 10.12.6 installer, and this time when it rebooted, "Install macOS from..." was an option in Clover. Selected it, the install went smoothly... applied the 10.12.6 Night Shift patch, and all is well. Thanks again for your help and all you do here!

Firmware data and bios data in Clover are up to date?

 
For some users, EmuVariableUEFI and nvram.plist interfered with the installation.
Delete EmuVariableUEFI and nvram.plist and try the update again.

Did not help.

 

This on Optiplex 990. High Sierra, 10.13.2

 

Everything worked until I tried to install 10.13.2 Supplemental update.

 

Guess I am not going to update my Optiplex 790, not yet anyways. :(

hi to all,

i have an optiplex 990 With ATi Radeon 260.

After a lot of try to configure it i give up.......so i replace it with an ATI Radeon 5450 with 512MB and hardware acceleration working fine in Sierra.

Audio not working .....solved copying Applehda e lilu kexts under 10.12 folder

now everything working good.

 

Now i want to update to HIGH Sierra .

What are the correct steps to do?

 

i think i have to update clover to the last version?

i have to move every kext to 10.13 folder?

 

GPU and audio kext will work correctly?

 

Thanks in advance

 

edit: if can be usef i go straight from sierra to high sierra without any problem.

 

I've simply copied every kext from 10.12 to 10.13 folder leaving Applehda e lilu kexts in both folder.

After that i download High SIerra update and launch it

after a pair of reboot i find both working gpu and audio

i make a backup and update also to the last update without any problem.

 

using ATI 5450 with 512 MB
