Hi guys, i and my friends are trying to get mac os high sierra to work, the first good news is that high sierra can be installed on hfs+, so for now we do not need drivers for the new file system in clover (but it will be helpful if clover developers add support for them), then, we are trying to get it to boot, at first attempt there is always the problem of mac kexts non injecting, so for now we need some fix in clover, we are trying to get the prelinked kernel with fake smc injected, form a mac to get to boot the system, we could do that so fast thanks to the fact that i own a developer account (if you are asking, i use it to distribute apps, not just for beta software), so we will keep you updated

 

EDIT: Thanks to the new clover releases you do not need special stuff to get it to work, you just need the apps.efi driver in the clover's drivers 64 uefi folder to get it to boot on APFS (don't use apfs on a standard hard disk, use it only on ssd), for web drivers on the dp 3 some the web driver from 10.12.6 modified with nvidia driver updater seems to work, and seems to be a native kabylake support too

Manually installing your kext to S/L/E or L/E just to be safe using single user verbose mode, see if it loads

yes we are trying, for now we need just fakemsc to be loaded, so we are building a prelinked kernel on a mac and then we will use that prelinked kernel (with fake smc loaded) to boot from the installer and then we will install the os and put all the kexts we need in the finished installation

If you've got a Windows installation, you could also try using an unlocked VMware Workstation with the partition you want to prepare for native booting assigned to is. Just boot up the VM from the native drive/partition, install all you need and then try to boot natively.

News: we successfully managed to get the installer to boot thanks to a prelinked kernel, created on a Mac, that has already fake smc loaded

So here we are with ITzTravelInTime's prelikedkernel containing FakeSMC.kext. All kext then loaded into L/E and rebuilding caches with KextUtility for Sierra, since Clover's injection is broken right now. Nice team Pietro :D

How do you create the USB Setup?

I only get an 5mb big Installer App

following the command line method that is already used to create a Mac OS Sierra installer, but we replaced the prelinked kernel with a custom one and also we put all the needed kexts in /library/extensions

1) Get a Pendrive

2) Format and Name it as "NEW"

3) Open Terminal and paste following command! Also give password

 

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/NEW --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ beta.app

since it is too big to be uploaded here:

 

 https://dl.dropboxus...prelinkedkernel

 

you have to put in /.IABootFiles (that's an invisible folder) in you installation USB key, and then you have to replace it again at the second step of installation, but on the installation volume, but in the same folder, and then at the end you have to replace it in the final installation, in /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels , also this file will be no more necessary when the clover dev team finishes a new version of clover to fix kext injection on the new os


another suggestion is to dual boot it with an existing Mac OS Sierra installation, so you can substitute all the stuff from there

I have no issues with  clover kext injection ...

The problem is firmware control during installation ...

EDIT: This guide is now obsolete, clover v4081 seems to work just fine without using the prelinked kernel

 

Mac OS 10.13 beta install tutorial: 

 

1) use you current working clover for Mac OS Sierra and copy all the kexts you need from the “10.12” folder in /EFI/Clover/kexts to the “others” folder, the format you USB key with guid partition method and with hfs+ file system, call it “USB” without quotes

 

2) open terminal an paste this command: 

 

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ beta.app --noiteraction

 

3) one the commend displayed “done” on the terminal type this command to show invisible files: 

 

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

 

An this other command to restart the finder: killall Finder

 

4) go to the usb installation key with the finder and the go to .IABootFiles folder that is now visible

 

5) replace the prelinkedkernel file you find here with this:

 

https://dl.dropboxus...prelinkedkernel

 

6) your usb is ready, you can copy the clover efi folder in his EFI partition if you want to have a working clover here

 

Now you can boot to the installer, this will take quite long time to boot and to load the installer.

 

DO NOT USE APPLE FILE SYSTEM, IT IS NOT SUPPORTED BY CLOVER RIGTH NOW SO YOU CAN’T BOOT WHEN ALL IS INSTALLED

 

 

When you try to do the second step of the installation process, do not boot form the installation volume yet, you have to use anther working copy of Mac OS to cange the prelinked kernel in .IABootFiles on the target installation volume, so you can boot to it and continue with tìinstallation, when installation is finished, before booting for the first time, you have to replace the prelinked kernel in the finished installation, so go to /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels and replace again the prelinked kernel with the patched one, once this is done you can boot to the finished installation and enjoy your new Mac OS high Sierra

And you're saying that this bypasses firmware checkup ???

 

Several people are able to boot the USB installer without any form of prelinkedkernel manipulation and can proceed with 10.13 installation. Bypassing the Firmware checkup remains the stumbling block on 1st reboot.
