WARNING! I have no affiliation with “DiskMaker X”. Use at your own risk!

 

Thank You to MaLd0n for all of his help getting me up and running!

 

Pre-Requisites

  • You must have a Mac with a working App Store

  • You must have a USB Drive with a size of 8 GB or more

 

Installation

  1. In the App Store download macOS High Sierra

  2. Download DiskMaker X and run it

    1. Setting the OS Install App and the USB Drive
      You may want to format the drive into 1 partition

    2. If you encounter any errors, see the DiskMaker X FAQ page

  3. Download the latest Clover EFI Boot and install it on the same USB Drive
    With these Settings: (Thanks to MaLd0n for these settings!)

     (Thanks to MaLd0n for these files!)

  5. Restart your computer and boot into the USB Drive’s EFI volume

  6. In Clover select “Boot OS X Install from ” + your USB Drive’s name

    1. The first “install” will copy the installer to your hard drive

    2. After the first reboot, in Clover, select “Boot macOS Install from ” + your Hard Drive name
      Note: I had to do this step twice, before the next step was available to me

    3. After the next reboot, in Clover, select “Boot macOS from “ + your Hard Drive name
      Note: This will be your normal option going forward

  7. Now you will have to install Clover on your Hard Drive, so that you don’t have to use your USB drive anymore.

    1. Download the latest Clover EFI Boot and install it on your Hard Drive
      With these Settings: (Thanks to MaLd0n for these settings!)

    2. On the Hard Drive’s “EFI” volume, under the “EFI” folder, replace the “CLOVER” folder with the one in this archive:

       (Thanks to MaLd0n for these files!)

    3. Reboot to this new EIF volume on your Hard Drive
      Note: This will be your default boot volume
         - You can set your BIOS to boot to it by default
      In Clover, select “Boot macOS from “ + your Hard Drive name
         - Remember this will be your normal Clover option going forward

  8. Download and Install Clover Configurator

 

Post Installation Manual Fixes

  1. The Mouse Scroll Wheel is set to the “Apple Touchpad direction”
    To fix that, go to System Preferences -> Mouse and uncheck Scroll direction: Natural

  2. Eject button is stuck in the menu bar
    To remove, hold down Cmd and drag it out of the menu

  3. Cannot view Hidden Files
    - In Finder hold down CMD + Shift + . (dot)

  4. ​Home and End keys have weird behavior
    - ​Use this Post to fix that
       - Note: The Folder/File you create need to go in your User’s hidden Library folder

 

Known Unresolved Bugs

  • Dual Monitor Bug
    When booting up, 1 of your monitors will get turned off
    To turn it back on, unplug both monitors, then plug them back in

 

Software I Like to Install

Note: I am not affiliated with any of these apps. I also do not guarantee nor take any responsibility for these apps. (This is really just a list to remind me what apps to install, when I do a clean OS install.) [I thought others might also find it useful.]
