When I try to boot to the installation screen I receive the "No signal" from my monitor and nothing else happen. I've tried the following:

 

nv_disable=1

 

 

System:

MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC
Intel Core Intel i3-6100T 3.2GHz
Intel HD Graphics 530
Seagate 1TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD Hard Drive
Crucial 16GB DDR4 2400 Memory

BIOS Settings:

1. Load Optimized Defaults
2. Set CFG Lock to Disabled
3. Set VT-d to Disabled
4. IO SerialPort to Disabled
5. Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled

 

 

Any suggestions?

Use lilu.kext and IntelGraphicsFixup.kext. Add them to /EFI/Clover/kext/10.12 or /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other 


You might also wanna add Inject Intel=True and use the 0x19120000 as ig-platform-id in the "Graphics" section in the config.plist

/EFI/Clover/kexts/Other:

 

ApleALC.kext

FakeSMC.kext

IntelGraphicsFixup.kext

IntelMausiEthernet.kext

Lilu.kext

USBInjectAll.kext

 

 

Error:

OsxAptioFix2Drv: Starting overrides for \.IABootFiles\boot.efi
Using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no
Error allocating 0x1162f pages at 0x0000000000f6d1000 alloc type 2
Couldn't allocate runtime area
Boot failed, sleeping for 10 seconds before exiting...

But after I rebooted the system a fourth time the error went away and then after a while the monitor displays "No signal" message. See the attached images

You can choose OsxAptioFixDrv instead of OsxAptioFix2Drv and try again.

I removed OsxAptioFix2Drv using Clover Configurator and replaced it with OsxAptioFixDrv however I received the consistent error message:

OsxAptioFixDrv: Starting overrides for \.IABootFiles\boot.efi
Using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no
OsxAptioFixDrv: Error - requested memory exceeds our allocated relocation block
Exiting in 30 secs ...

Give this folder a try. Replace your EFI folder with this one.


if that didn't work replace the config.plist with this one

Now, I'm back to the original issue of the screen showing the no signal message.


I've changed out the config.plist however still no luck.

if you can edit the config.plist remove all the entries in the Graphics section and try again.

 

Remove Inject Intel=true and remove the ig-paltform-id

 

You use clover configurator to edit the config.plist

Check your bios settings in advanced frquency settings. Enable XCPM for DDR4 Ram memory and in clover configurator also enable it.

Or try disabling both of those, if one is on (checked) and the other isn't it may cause memory errors.

I can't find the "Enable XCPM" settings in the BIOS. I flashed my BIOS to the latest but to no luck. Toggling between -xcpm didn't work either.

I think what he meant is XMP Extreme Memory Profile, it must be under MIT-->Advanced Memory Settings.


What is the Size of DVMT Pre-Allocated?

I can boot my system with this config using IntelHD530 as primary. Give this one a try and let me know if it works or not.

I changed DVMT-Preallocated from 32MB to 128MB but still no luck. I either get one of the following issues:

 

1. Couldn't allocate runtime area

2. Error kernel cache

3. No signal from the monitor

 

I'm using the display port on motherboard don't know if that extra info helps.
