  1. https://www117.zippyshare.com/v/QCktAwF2/file.html I just want to say thank you very much, MaLd0n. Not only does my system seem to run smoother, after 20 months on this Hackintosh it finally stays Shutdown. No longer do I have to wait until the fans turn off before I switch the power supply off in the back. That alone is a great feeling and a testament to your computer savvy and acumen. I have little idea what you did with the Clover and DSDT fixes but I will peek to try to learn. I will become a regular donor. Thanks again, Mikentosh2016
  2. https://www43.zippyshare.com/v/iDWpCkZW/file.html I hope I added your data correctly, MaLd0n

  4. I couldn't figure out how to boot into the internal drive without the thumb so I took a picture of 12 sections of Clover Configurator and its settings in the thumb and repeated the settings in the internal drive. Walla, it booted to the internal drive

    config.plist please

    Here are Install Drivers in Clover Configurator 4.60 and 4.62 and my plist.config file. Please help me with my settup. I have not restarted in days for fear I will not get to the desktop. The system will not restart without the boot thumb. config copy.plist

    No idea what's happening

    Intermittent booting to OS. Sometime stalls at UEFI, sometimes stalls at "4096 seeking entries" (or something like that). I have "Load Defaults" to no avail. DSDTs have disappeared. I've downloaded Rehabman's MACiASL but I don't know how to use it. The 1st thing I think I should do is create a restore thumb. I'd also like someone to look at my plist.config and whatever needs to be addressed. I'm afraid to shut off the computer. It took 5 reboots to get here.

  7. Yes, I know DSDTs are required. I don’t understand what happened to them. What do I look for in the Kernel Log? I know the UEFI is for PCs.
  8. System without DSDT?! Today I opened Clover Configurator to tick SipSmiAtWake so Shutdown will stay down. I immediately noticed that there are no DSDT Patches. I'm almost afraid to Restart it. The last time I unticked Verbose argument, the video drivers would not install. It was weird but it is somewhat stable. Remaining issues: Shutdown doesn't stay off. Monitor periodically sleeps. I keep forgetting to inspect the cooling hardware.
  9. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I've been trying to reinstall Sierra on my Hackintosh for months but finally succeeded by using this link. I can't believe it. I'll delete the Chopintosh install in a few days after finalizing this install.
  10. None of these install methods worked for me. The High Sierra method gave me the following error message: "The disk could not be created because of an error: An error occured: -10006. Finder got an error: Can’t set alias "Install macOS High Sierra:Install macOS High Sierra.app" to {425, 76}." I'm not sure what to do at this point. The Sierra method gave no errors but just wouldn't boot.

    config.plist please

    I successfully flashed the UEFI from f22 to f23i.

    config.plist please

    Ok. Starting now. I have been attempting to install Sierra to SATA II SSD because of its stability. That failed to load Nvidia drivers so now I will attempt to install High Sierra on the m.2 SSD using the above link. LinuxMint and Windows 8.1 are both installed on their own old platter drives.
