  1. Supplementary info. 1013.4 was causing permanent crashes. My PS2 mouse can be the cause as I suspect Voodoo -Ps2- controller kext to be outdated. Anyway additionally some overload of processors caused overheating - do not now the reason but some process in background went like crazy. Only solution was using Time Machine back to 10.13.3. And everything work fine. Weird but true.
  2. Finally I managed to upgrade 10.13.4. The problem was made by myself as I have hide unused boot entries in Clover. Because upgrade needs couple of restarts the install reboot was invisible. Seem to be OK now.
  3. 10.13.4 do not installs. After upgrade process and restart indicates same version. Repeating procedure gives no result.
  4. Any news on 10.13.4 update. Are there problems in upgrade process?
  5. Google Earth in Chrome is crashing when browsing in 3D. Also latest Google Earth Pro desktop crushing on start permanently. I downloaded older version of desktop app and works but sometimes beachballing or hangs. I think there is some incompatibility or may be inner conflict in library with other programs. Re Google Play Kiosk it is also available in Safari. But beachbolling and system freeze happens on many others huge websites with lot of multimedia. In general HD 530 is rather week in hard tasks , but my computer is much too small to put additional graphic card. So far for everyday use it is enough.
  6. Regarding Safari/system crash please try Google earth web version and Google play Kiosk . For me its most common source of making system non responding. Only solution is power off from mains and restart. Besides this Safari issues all applications ran smooth except Google Earth. Actually installed also Win 10 via WMware and works perfect. Anyway still cannot trace the source of Safari malfunction .
  7. It was crashing just after opening, and couple of times after.
  8. Thanks for the tip. Now boot looks much nicer. Regarding Shiki kext it become necessary due to iTunes permanent crash, but with slight modification in boot flag -shikigva=25.
  9. I have removed all mentioned kexes except voodooPS2, which I need for my pS2 mouse. Anyway this was pretty old version from El Captain Times, so I suspect this old kext for my crash problems. Actually after new VoodooPS2 kext all seem to be fine. Also removed Shiki , which was causing permanent iTunes crash. So far so good. I have my drive with new AFPS format and looks brilliant, must say that twice as fast response and flash spotline. Only one thing is pissing me off is Clover boot menu with ten boot option disks in row. Do you know some elegant and simple solution how to remove not necessary items?
  10. Still random crashes happens on High Sierra, as before on Sierra. Any advice how to trace the cause?
  11. Simple use attached clover in EFI on install USB as described in first post. Than install from usb and your Sierra will be upgraded with no harm to previous installed programs and data ( It looks like upgrade of Sierra ). Keep in mind that sometimes clover is not automatic in pinpoint installl drive when booting during install. Install from USB is only in beginning , than from install of disk. To make Siri workable follow SmUUID procedure, and replace EFI in your booting disk with clover configurator to boot without usb. CLOVER.zip
  12. I have just installed high Sierra 10.13.2 and everything work fine.
  13. I have wifi card BCM94352HMB which was working fine some time ago. Actually after couple of upgrades this card is not detected by Sierra. It is strange that booting high Sierra from other disk this card is working fine. Any suggestions how to fix it.
  14. It is enough to play video streaming for long time from any source. Also happens when opening new page when some other are open.Actually most problems with BBCiplayer.
  15. I have HWMonitor already installed. Moreover CPU Fan speed is adjusted in auto mode. This is rather different problem already described in forums as Safari bug.
