    :help:Maybe Somebody CAN HELP me PLEASE??:help:

    THANKS so much.

    1. MaLd0n


      u need a voodootscsync with IOCPUNumber=15

      :thumbsup_anim: Thank You so much for you help :thumbsup_anim:

      All work fine

      This is it!!!










      Clover Install configuration:

      INSTALL with me copy and replace the Content from (boot&clover - folders) from attached zip-file  TO - USB installation media (EFI volume).


      Please wont try to disable or remove some lines from [ ACPI ]


      And from Kernel and Kext Patches 



      ALL kext's included in ZIP - they will be installed with the system




      Post-install configuration: Replace the (CLOVER) folder on you (EFI) boot volume  WITH me before restart.

      If you have Nvidia VideoCard.

      • After or before the installation of drivers directly, edit the (config.plist)
      • Please uncheck the check off (injectNVidia).
      • If you wont do it, you see BLACK screen.
      • Or replace the (CLOVER) folder]  WITH me 




      If you forget to do this - what you need to do is:

      1. Boot from installation media, in our case this is (USB), and
      2. go to Graphics section -> and uncheck the check ( inject NVIDIA ).
      3. From arguments too. What you need is [ dart=0 npci=0x3000



      [ npci=0x3000 ] - in case if you have motherboard with PCIex 3.0
      [ npci=0x2000 ] - in case if you have motherboard with PCIex 2.0
      [ dart=0 ] is using for disabling Vt-d (Intel Virtualisation Technology for Directed I/O) on boot.



      One more thing - BIG THING.

      Before you install (video drivers).


      I don't know what model of processor you have. But the system won't see all the cores.

      In my case is i7-7820X 8 Core. What I see after fresh install?
      Is It: i7-7820X 8 Core L3 Cache 705Kb and only one core processor works.


      Why? Because in my case.

      I use only one core processor to do the install. For this I wrote this argument [ cpus=1 ] on install.
      I could not do the installation with all core processors. Installation is stuck.

      After this I wont knew what to do.


      MUCH THANKS to:




      This is the answer

      u need a voodootscsync with IOCPUNumber=15.
