Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030 ;)

 

Config:

Gigabyte EP43-DS3L

Core2Quad Q9300

6 GB DDR2 RAM

Asus GT1030 2GB

Sandisk SSD 128GB

TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB

Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot)

 

SMBIOS: iMac14,1

Clover: 4297

 

A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake!

You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports.

There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port.

For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed.

You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI.

 

Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it.

Could you share original DSDT and patched DSDT as .dsl source in order to recompile using iasl and check patches introduced by yourself?

 

I've a Gigabyte GA-H55M-USB3 and I need a reference, thanks.

I don‘t think they would be helpful, because your board is a different generation with different chipset. You should look for DSDT patches for 5-Series boards. There are several threads in this forum for your exact model.

Yes, because you booted from USB ;) But you need to add a DSDT to make the Sata ports work.
