#2332515 How to create Sierra installer in Windows ? Plz help.

Posted by MNSiw on 11 December 2016 - 01:57 PM

There are many pre-installed virtual images of OS X on internet, download one such image to create bootable USB. I'd downloaded Sierra VMWare image few days back.

#2245117 [pre-releases] macOS Sierra

The first time Clover was able to run Sierra ever was due to me, Rehabman and Sherlock. Pandora's Box contains Clover, it's a tool, and is the first tool able to create the installer (createinstallmedia or with a restore method like you are looking for) for Sierra. Also has a good config editor. Thank you Micky, finally got it working, it was old Clover version issue, created installer using Pandora's Box and then installed new Clover manually, copied my kexts to Clover\kexts\others and problem solved. Now need to sort TP-Link TL-WN727N auto connect issue.

#2174425 Disable System Integrity Protection (SIP)

Posted by MNSiw on 07 October 2015 - 06:43 AM

To use unsigned kexts during first boot use bootflags rootless=0 and kext-dev-mode=1The proper way of disable SIP later (I think) is to add to Clover's plist <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x67</string> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> </dict> I found this somewhere in the forum and for me it is working perfectly. Thanks Green :-)For installer and 1st boot 'boot with injected kexts' worked for me. Now have two issues, wireless kext not loading and showing USB over current error. I found something similar to disable SIP on an other forum, I'll try it.

its working here, just try to kext drop it again...and remember to add rootless=0  Problem solved, in Yosemite I was using this kext in EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.10 but in EI Capitan it's not working in EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.11, so moved it to S/L/E, now it's loading fine :)

#2026998 Easy Yosemite 10.10 Final USB Installer - *Updated 10.16.2014

Posted by MNSiw on 08 June 2014 - 04:32 AM

Hi PGH  :) Thanks for post. I tried your way but it didn't work. After some investigation finally I caught the culprit  :) it's 'Patched_10.7_AppleRTC.kext', it was not loading due to 'invalid signature', after googling I found this http://www.insanelym...eset/?p=2026075 and patched original Yosemite AppleRTC.kext in S/L/E, but after patching it's causing same error, 'invalid signature', without patching this kext my system does not boot. Now the only workable solution is to leave this kext in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10 and load using 'with injected kexts' on boot. Trying to find a way to make this 'with injected kexts' thing permanent in config.plist, tried following but it's not loading kexts, any idea about it? <key>InjectKexts</key><string>Yes</string> Edit: It's working now, it has to be this way  <key>SystemParameters</key><dict><key>InjectKexts</key>...
