<-- confused but rolling with it. re-edited my ssdt-5 as well as my DSDT to resolve my USB issues for 10.13, and now my bluetooth no longer works, the port it is on, IOUSBHostDevice@1d140000 fails to create the device and then disables the port.  any help would be Awesome.




Edited to included DSDT and SSDT-5 for easier assistance.

Probably a glitch with diskutil. Stranger things have happened. I am glad that it worked.

OK...I got it to work...I found a youtube vid that gave these instructions

from terminal:

sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/diskXs1

from there I can mount the EFI on the high sierra disk and install clover.

Thanks to everyone for your help
Greatly appreciated.


That is the underlying command that the diskutil uses to format a partition.

try setting your system SMBIOS as an iMac 15,1. if the kext is the one I believe you're talking about, then it may be a compatibility issue with it not fully loading or implementing the patches (read the SourceForge supported model index for more information.)


Hope this Helps.

nope....no luck

should i try a fresh install?

any opinions welcome





first question to ask is how did you install clover? if you have not formatted the EFI partition fat32 then it probably will not mount in clover configurator because it does not see that partition as being a valid partition.  so...  time to get Scary. mess up and this will Screw your machine.



diskutil list



diskutil eraseVolume FAT32 EFI /Volumes/DiskXs1     // **note X is the drive you want to reformat the EFI partition on.




then run clover installer and chose the EFI options and tell it you need to modify the boot record, (I believe at this point they have modified the installer to look for the Host disk vs the APFS disks) and this should make a bootable clover install.


if not, let me know and I can ether point you to the guides to manually install the clover boot loader(a pain in the butt, or write a quick guide on the process.)
