  1. https://www.jamf.com/jamf-nation/discussions/25519/macos-high-sierra-10-13-0-where-to-download-full-installer and https://managingosx.wordpress.com/2017/09/26/stupid-install-macos-high-sierra-tricks/ Googling works wonders on this one.
  2. You need to get the standard (offline) install/download, not the 12MB kickoff/startup file that starts the process. Google should get you there...
  3. Even if it wasn't supported, it would still show up in Windows and Mac (PCIe device listings, say). It doesn't. My issue is I can't say if it's a bad 4360CD card or a bad PCIe card. Two different vendors. ...supported or not, it would still show up in device manager, in PCIe listing tools, etc. It doesn't show in system report. That's the entire problem.
  4. This isn't a kext issue. The issue is the OSs (both, and multiple PCs) can't see the card. Shows it's a native Apple card across the 'nets - here's one example: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/working-100-official-apple-bcm94360cd-with-pcie-adapter-from-mallaid-taobao.137070/ Reason I focused on it was it's used by the expensive vendor: http://www.osxwifi.com/apple-broadcom-bcm94360cd-802-11-a-b-g-n-ac-bluetooth-4-0-with-adapter-for-pc-hackintosh
  5. Unfortunately that's not quite right. (I wish it was!) . The issue is the card isn't seen by the OS - either Win or Mac. That's not a driver issue; that's a card or mPCIe card issue. And my problem is I can't tell which. #frustrated
  6. Tried the card in another PC - no change; red and purple lights go on, nothing else happens.
  7. I got a PCIe card very similar to what you got Glasgood - 4 cutouts and mounting for the 4 antenna facing inward/down, into the card. I got the 4 antenna mounted, plugged the Apple card (Apple Broadcom BCM94360CD 802.11ac mini WLAN+Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless card) into the PCIe mounting bits, plugged the PCIe card into the bottom X1 slot (the only one available), and ...nothing happened. No recognition in MacOS or Windows. No idea where bold came from or why it won't go away. Anyway, I'm feeling a bit stuck - it doesn't show in Device Manager, but on the card I can see that it has a red light on it when the power is off, and a blue/purple light on it when the machine is powered up (on the PCIe card itself). Is there anything else anyone can think of to check? I tried the X8 slot right above the X1 slot and ...no change. Lights light, but in both Win and Mac, no recognition, no appearance.
  8. Why remove the dsdt? Does that just relabel / clarify your PCI devices list in about this mac? More to it than that? Sorry - are you saying the prohibited sign is intermittent b/c Asus updated the BIOS to 0605 (or do you mean 0606?) or do you mean the sign is intermittent b/c you removed the dsdt, and that interacts with the BIOS, or ??
  9. Sorry - UK vs US English. . Top of listing? You mean in the original post, #1? Also missing - DSDT from acpi/patch folder. The intent is to overlay this over what we already have, but then not replace our existing config.plist, unless we're starting from scratch, right? My concern is I've updated my RTVar, Serial, and UUID and don't want to lose that customization. Voodoohda will also be customized by many people (to permit audio over HDMI); replacing with yours loses that. Again, no issue if starting from nothing, else an issue.
  10. Why is Atheros E2200 Ethernet in the zipfile? Why is the older (1.2.0, not 1.2.1) of Apple ALC in there? Realtek 8111 driver - why?
  11. What link do you see between USB and the not symbol? I see a relationship with slow boots (slow white progress bar at bootup) and the not symbol. When boots are very, very slow, I know I'll get the not symbol. Do you see this too?
  12. Do we need updated DSDTs when the BIOS is updated? I'm running 0605 in the Asus Z370-G and haven't changed the DSDT.
  13. I tried updating to 10.13.2 Combo Update (to take advantage of the latest nVidia 1080 drivers) and had all kinds of problems booting (getting the not symbol whenever I tried booting from the preboot/install 10.13.2 Combo Install EFI items - and the normal Mac boot icon). I eventually had to boot with my old USB booter/installer (with an older Clover). At that point I completed the 10.13.2 Combo install, then installed the latest nVidia web drivers (they make it easy), and then rebooted from USB again. Then I reverted to a backup of the EFI folder I'd made a few days before I experienced the not symbol issues - with the same, newest, Clover 4359. So far, in a limited test of reboots, everything seems fine, implying a corruption issue of some sort in the clover config / plist file. That's my guess, as in an earlier test I'd reverted to the prior Clover but kept the current plist in place and didn't get any further in booting. Later edit: Still does the NOT symbol from time to time. And there's a new one - sometimes when it boots, I select the Mac OS icon, and then the bar stays at 0% and hangs there. Fun! . If the caparable iMac Pro wasn't $5000 on up, I wouldn't ever dream of dealing with this.
  14. Anyone else having the "Not" symbol periodically appear on bootup? Used to happen 'never', then infrequently, now happens every other bootup or so. Don't see rhyme or reason to it - I can reboot (same bootup config, files, etc.) and it will happen on one bootup, won't happen on another. I can't see any changes I've made, but clearly I did something...

    2 x 500GB or 1 x 1TB HDD?

    If you want to dual boot then by far the easiest way is two distinct hard drives (no raid) - 1 gets Windows on it, 1 gets MacOS. Far easier than any alternatives, and with 500GB drives being $50 these days it's a nonissue anyway.
