[GA-Z77x-up5-TH] Installation of 10.13.1 from 10.12.6 gets stuck

high sierra installation window server

Best Answer stylisch, 06 February 2018 - 09:03 PM

The issue is solved, thanks to the following hint:

I recently installed HS using onboard video then installed my GTX 960 with Nvidia web drivers and everything works great.

I did exactly that. Unplug my GTX680, connect HDMI to the internal graphics port, activate IGP in UEFI and set it to "boot first".
Then by using the IGP, I could upgrade to High Sierra without a hitch.
Afterwards, I just reversed everything and now I have a fully working installation of 10.13.3 without any further configuration.

Hi.
I am running this hackintosh since 10.8. and once I got the hang on clover, never run into problems with major upgrades. Until now.
On my first try with the installation, I put FakeSMC into /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13, which did not work.
I learnt to put it into /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other and put apfs.efi into /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI

Now booting (in verbose mode) runs a while but in the end, I am stuck at

Com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.WindowServer) Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.

with a timestamp in front which, obviously, refreshes every 10 seconds. thats it. nothing else happens.

I turned the internal Graphics off in UEFI. I boot UEFI only.
Any help is appreciated.
I tried it with multiple clover releases, actual one is 4297

 

iMac 13,2

GA-Z77X-UP5-TH

GeForce GTX 680

This is the config.plist, which I played with some options (turning on or off to see if something changes).

But to no help. Still the same error.

Hi bigben1.

The CPU graphics are already disabled since I do not use them. Just to be sure, I checked it again. Thanks for the tip, but that was not the solution.

UPDATE:

I tried again with Clover 4334 and the new installer for 10.13.2.
Now instead of one, there are two lines of Error when booting in verbose mode.

 
Com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.WindowServer) Service exited with abnormal code: 1
Com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.WindowServer) Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.

Does that ring a bell with anyone?
