  1. ESP Mounter Pro

  2. I'm using EFI folder listed on guide with no problems, though I am not using the DSDT at the moment due to intermittent boot problem / prohibited sign that I was experiencing using the DSDT.
  3. Hi, Not been very busy here on the forum for a while "other life commitments"! I did not expect to get as many reply's for help on this post To be honest, I'm not an expert on this and can't answer every question. The guide, is me simply sharing the basic Hackintosh knowlage that has allowed me to easily build and maintain a decent Hackintosh computer. I have attached >>THIS CLOVER EFI Dec 14th - 2017.zip an older version of Clover EFI folder from Dec 14th 2017, it has old SSDT for power management in the ACPI folder and USB fix. Remove the USB fix "SSDT-UIAC" if your setup for WIFI card is not the same as mine. Best! Use Clover Configurator and setup dual channel memory. After that then add the memory to motherboard.
  4. You PM looks good from image, from what I can see, looks like the power is increasing during rendering then decreasing when rendering is done. Yes, exclude / deactivate USB ports found with port discovery that you don't need. If RAM is registered in macOS then no need to list in Clover Configurator. To view recovery mode, remove Recovery string from Clover Configurator GUI / Hide Volumes. Glad you got a working hackintosh Good for you then, pat yourself on the back and if it goes pear shape then seek help from pastrychef @ TM
  5. Hello, See BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING TIP on guide, Clover -v option and post results can you also list hardware / specifications of your Hackintosh ?
  6. As an Nvidia user this is something that I have not researched. So can't say anything in regards to it. Integrated video with HDMI should work if you change BIOS settings to Integrated video. As I'm not using Radeon card, you will have to make some changes in config.plist for both Integrated and dedicated. for HDMI sound read guide part Enable Nvidia HDMI Audio. Understand how VoodooHDA is patched with Vendor & Device ID for Nvidia GTX1080ti and then apply same principle for either Radeon or Intel. See guide, you can also test with >> Intel Power Gadget and Cinebench . Don't use SSDT-UIAC of DSDT, they are strictly for Asus Z370-G only, if you are using SSDT-UIAC then that is possibly why your USB 2.0 port is not working. I disabled USB 2.0 port in SSDT-UIAC for the port limit fix, see guide to create your own SSDT-UIAC or use other method listed for USB port fix. I have listed enough details regarding USB port fix, read all the information and info in the links by RehabMan. Those following my exact build specifications and using WIFI/BLUTOOTH card in same PCIE_X1_2 slot can use my SSDT-UIAC and have sorted USB ports fix. All info is there, creating the USB fix requires port discovery and is time consuming, I simply don't have time to provide support for that. To test speed of USB ports try >> Blackmagic Disk Speed Test The serial number will be associated with SMBIOS, so SMBIOS for your ultrabook will be different from SMBIOS for iMac 18,3. So don't think it will work . POST INSTALL EFI folder can be used for Asus Z370-* Strix but is specifically for Z370-G
  7. It looks like the processor is most likley being throttled, maybe it is possible that SMBIOS for iMac 18,3 is something to do with the throttling. Is there any change when using MultiCore Enhancement ?
  8. I think getting top turbo speed at 4.7GHz is dependant on cooling, If the CPU is getting hot then it will throttle and you won't reach 4.7GHz but if you have water-cooling and good air flow and good CPU chip ( Silicone lottery ) then getting 4.7GHz and above with OC can be achievable. Your speed stepping looks good.
  9. Hi, your config.plist looks very different from those in the POST-INSTALL-EFI-FOLDER so I'm assuming you are doing your own build or following another guide. But I think I see some spot where you went wrong: Also set: Plugin Type = 1 -xcpm = true ( check ) Run the Intel Power Gadget, and run something processor intensive such as CineBench and observe. best!
  10. I downloaded EFI folder and recreated High Sierra USB, I can sucesssfully boot ( F8 on boot ) to Mac OS High Sierra Install. It could be possible that the Mac OS High Sierra App is corrupt, did you download again and retry. That is strange... Sierra appeared in Clover boot screen but not High Sierra, you will have to initialise your NVMe for it to be seen in DiskUtility, see guide for how to initialise drive.
  11. Hi, you need to download the full Install macOS High Sierra app and it is 5.21GB in size, not 11.6MB. Change quality to HD for better view, video a bit ropey but should be a good pointer for things.
  12. Try: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB Ensure High Sierra app is in applications folder?
  13. If you don't have Windows, try EFI install of Linux. But first try recreating new USB installer. You could also initialise your Samsung EVO whilst in Linux.
