  1. [pre-release] macOS High Sierra

    That's really great. Glad you got it fixed.
  2. [pre-release] macOS High Sierra

    Interesting. I would make the USB a secondary priority for now. The first should be the SATA. Just to be sure, have you checked the battery that backs up the BIOS and reset the BIOS but checking that you've reset to AHCI. Update - I'm assuming that you've checked the boot order of drives in your BIOS.

    Can you clarify what you mean by add? E.g. Does it mean make it into a Fusion Drive? or add the HDD to an existing port on the MB? or connect an ext HDD via SATA or USB? I've heard APFS on a Fusion Drive (e.g. iMacs with 3TB Fusion drives are not supported).

    No issues here with DP9.

    Did you try "cmd + R" to refresh from the Appstore/updates window?
  6. [pre-release] macOS High Sierra

    No problems here with Public beta 7. Used Chris1111's Disk Creator (Thanks Chris1111, an excellent product as always) to install PB6. Used Rehabman (Many thanks for USB 3.0 and bluetooth solutions) and Neo aka Darkman (many thanks for the wifi patch) stuff to get USB, wifi and bluetooth working. Then updated the install using the update from Apple Store.
  7. Mac os High sierra installation attempts

    Just wanted to say a big thanks to Chris1111 for Disk Creator - Just installed Build 17A352a, without any problems. Also wanted to thank Rehabman and Neo aka Darkman without whom I would have no USB 3.0, Wifi or Bluetooth. Everything working well. BTW - I've avoided APFS and stuck to HFS+. HTH
  8. [FIX] macOS Sierra DP1 BCM94532Z WiFi

    If you go to the App Store/purchases, you should be able to download the original Sierra beta installer from which you can extract the kexts. I shall be away from my keyboard for about an hour, but you should check earlier posts as details are given there.

    Have you tried using the kexts (IO89211Family.kext and IO80211FamilyV2.kext) from Sierra 10.12.0 beta 1? These worked for me

    Wow you must have the most compatible pc. My config.plist is way more complicated.
  11. [FIX] macOS Sierra DP1 BCM94532Z WiFi

    Thanks CCWhite. Finally success. I went back to the App Store for the PB1 installer, followed your excellent instructions and it worked without any further issues. I can't thank you enough.
  12. [FIX] macOS Sierra DP1 BCM94532Z WiFi

    Wow, that's brilliant. I'm really learning a lot. Unfortunately, that's not working for me. As a precaution, I've repaired permissions and rebuilt the cache but still no luck. I've verified the presence of all 4 kexts in S/L/E and that my config.plist does indeed contain Darkvoid's patch. Tomorrow, I'll try to update Clover - I'm on V2.3K r3646. The new one is r3691, although I can't see the changes log (using this link http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=2656)so I'll have to bite the bullet. And finally I must thank you for your help. I definitely would not have been able to get this far without it.
  13. [FIX] macOS Sierra DP1 BCM94532Z WiFi

    Finally updated to PB4 and it looks like I will need your help. Where to I find to wifi drivers from the first release? (presumably these are the kexts on the EFI partition). Now a really stupid question, where do I find the FakePCI.kext and the Broadcom wifi cards? Apologies to all on the forum for being dumb, please have patience with me. Update, I've found Rehabman's FakePCIID.kext (which I'm assuming is the FakePCI.kext you refer to). Based on what I've read on this page (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM), these kexts are to support Bluetooth and not specifically wifi. I haven't found the wifi drivers from the first release so your offer of help is greatly appreciated.

    Regrettably, I have not had much time to research the matter and so have not resolved this challenge. As you can see by the TOD stamp, it's quite late and I've got an early appointment tomorrow. One of my friends suggested that I need to inject the kext, however I thought that was what Darkvoid's enabled me to avoid that. Should I find a solution, I will post it here. Update: I've just notice Public Beta 4 is out, so I shall update that tomorrow and report back.
  15. [FIX] macOS Sierra DP1 BCM94532Z WiFi

    Hi Guys, being noob I'm probably breaking lots of protocol but I'm going to ask for help anyway. My BCM94352HMB was/is working fine in El Capitan and was working fine in Sierra Public Beta 2 using Darkvoid's config.plist patch (many thanks Darkvoid). After updating to public beta 3, I get a greyed out wifi symbol with an "x" through it in the menu bar. When I click on this I get a label "Wi-Fi: No hardware installed". I can get bluetooth working using BTFirmwareUploader kext. First question: Is anyone else struggling with this issue? Second question: What information should I be sharing with the Forum to get a fix? Many thanks A
