    Ill take your advice and see if IronManJFF can help me out. I dont know how to rebuild the ROM and delete the existing one then reinsert the cecekpawon one. Thanks again for all your help buddy.

    I think the issue may be that trying to clear the NVRAM isnt working to be honest. I can assure you that I previously followed your instructions and used ONLY the plist you provided and had the same results. Then I tried modifying it to include the additional info and had the same results. It seems like all the lists have no effect. When I try to clear the NVRAM at bootup, it doesnt do the restart as It used to when clearing the NVRAM. I also tried clearing the NVRAM using terminal as well. Ill try your plist again. One thing I also noticed is that now, when the system it booting regularly, it shows that load bar, then for the last portion of the loading the screen goes all pixelated just like when trying to update the system, then it starts up.

    I havent put anything else into anywhere. No kexts or other stuff, unless it's left over from years ago. I looked and didnt see anything in the UFI directory though. Also, do I have to enable the verbose in the BIOS settings?

    I had actually tried it as you posted before changing it further and it also did not bring the audio or bluetooth back. Unfortunately, I am obviously missing something, or maybe made some sort of mistake wit the data for the FirmwareFeatures/FirmwareFeaturesMask, or something else. Either that, or Im failing to clear the NVRAM. Im at a loss how to proceed. I guess I check that other thread. Thanks for your assistance.

    Unfortunately for me, I'm still not getting any further. After adding the plist to the EFI directory and rebooting, still no audio or bluetooth in El Capitan. As well, restarting the PC to install the update to High Sierra, it shows a black screen with the apple logo on it and a loading bar for almost a hour, then it reboots to a garbled screen. I tried the trick of holding down the cmd option p & r keys at start to clear the NVRAM to make sure my updated plist was being acknowledged. Im sure I screwed something up since I know so little about the process. I wonder if a clean install rather than updating from a cloned drive might be a better path...? Im not even certain ive effectively been able to clear the nvram as when the computer posts and i hold the correct keys, it doesnt reboot and post again. If i do it after the bootloader it does nothing as well. Defaults.zip

    I appreciate the help from all of you guys. I think there is just a miscommunication, as I think you are all with the best intentions. Sometimes text and quotes doesnt convey the intended tone. Thank you all, guys. Ill try to incorporate all the info you guys gave to get the MAC running again and updated.

    Thanks again. At this point, I'm feeling pretty confused, to be honest. I wasn't aware that I had to use a Plist editor. I have Plist Edit Pro now, and opened the file you provided to edit it. I started the whole process over again for getting a serial etc. in the Clover Configurator, because my serial on checkcoverage.apple.com/us/en/ showed as registered to someone else. So I repeated the steps you provided here: and here: I had issues though. The Rom I got is way different than I got last time, as it was only like 5 digits previously but it now like 12 digits: ROM: F63278BA1F4D Also the firmware features and firmware features mask ; Am I just supposed to take the numbers from Clover configurator and convert them to decimal? Firmware Features: 0xE00DE137=3759006007 Firmware Features Mask: 0xFF1FFF3F=4280287039 I don't know what I'm supposed to put for Firmware Revision or SystemSKU. I'm really lost, man. I don't know what I'm doing and am not a coder. I have the defaults.plist filled out to the best of my understanding, but it doesn't appear to be correct. I know I've taken a bunch of your time. My apologies for my lack of understanding. Defaults.zip

    This macOS update process has been brutal. I kept having issues getting the High Sierra update to run at the BIOS screen I was, at least, able to get El Capitan installed. I realized after looking some stuff up, that you can’t have the old Mac Pro system profile or High Sierra wont install. I used the following commands in Terminal to update that info: sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:BiosVersion=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:ProductName=iMac13,1 sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:SystemSerial=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:ProductFamily=iMac sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:ProductId=Mac-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Updating to El Capitan killed the onboard audio (regardless of whether I have “DisableVoodooHda” set true or false) and updating the SMBIOS detai;s seemed to have killed my PCI Express bluetooth card's functionality as well (It’s a bluetooth card from a Mac). Luckily, I had an old wired mouse sitting around so I can still work on the machine, but there is now no audio or bluetooth. Arghhhh. PS: One thing I hadn’t brought up before, is that I was never able to get the Apple Store to allow me to download the full High Sierra installer, so I used this High Sierra patcher tool to download the full installer: http://dosdude1.com/highsierra/ I didn’t utilize the patching function as I didn’t need it, but when you run that patcher app, it happens to have a way to download the full installer under the “Tools” menu. I guess I’m just going to try to update using the 19mb download and see what happens. At this point, I'm having a hard time figuring out any other ideas or how to proceed. What do you mean?

    Hello again, To verify; I dont need to change ProductId or HardwareAddress from the x's to actual values? I should place the file in "EFI/Oz/" Correct? Do I need to rename the file from OzmosisDefaults.plist to Config.plist or Defaults.plist? Thanks again for all your assistance, my friend. Im posting this here just for posterity if anyone else running the i7-3440K with Quo board and no video card as an example. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Defaults:1F8E0C02-58A9-4E34-AE22-2B63745FA101</key> <dict> <key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key> <integer>0x01620005</integer> <string>Intel HD Graphics 4000</string> <key>BootEntryTemplate</key> <string>$label</string> <key>DarwinCoreStorageTemplate</key> <string>$label</string> <key>DarwinDiskTemplate</key> <string>$label</string> <key>DarwinRecoveryDiskTemplate</key> <string>$label ($platform.$major.$minor)</string> <key>DisableAtiInjection</key> <true/> <key>DisableIntelInjection</key> <false/> <key>DisableNvidaInjection</key> <true/> <key>DisableVoodooHda</key> <true/> <key>LinuxDiskOptionTemplate</key> <string>initrd=$initfs root=UUID=$uuid ro</string> <key>LinuxDiskTemplate</key> <string>$label $build</string> <key>LinuxRescueDiskTemplate</key> <string>$label Rescue</string> <key>LinuxRescueOptionTemplate</key> <string>initrd=$initfs root=UUID=$uuid ro</string> <key>TimeOut</key> <integer>5</integer> <key>UserInterface</key> <true/> </dict> <key>Defaults:4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102</key> <dict> <key>ROM</key> <data>rC3ClxDQ</data> <key>BaseBoardAssetTag</key> <string>Base Board Asset Tag#</string> <key>BaseBoardSerial</key> <string>C022104054NDNJKCB</string> <key>BiosReleaseDate</key> <string>08/08/2017</string> <key>BiosVersion</key> <string>IM131.88Z.010F.B00.1708080805</string> <key>BoardType</key> <integer>10</integer> <key>ChassisAssetTag</key> <string>iMac-Aluminum</string> <key>EnclosureType</key> <integer>13</integer> <key>FirmwareFeatures</key> <integer>3759006007</integer> <key>FirmwareFeaturesMask</key> <integer>4280287039</integer> <key>FirmwareVendor</key> <string>Apple</string> <key>HardwareAddress</key> <string>xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx</string> <key>Manufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>ProductFamily</key> <string>iMac</string> <key>ProductId</key> <string>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>iMac13,1</string> <key>SystemSKU</key> <string>System SKU#</string> <key>SystemSerial</key> <string>C02HD2I6DNCT</string> <key>SystemVersion</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> <key>Defaults:7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82</key> <dict> <key>boot-args</key> <string>darkwake=0</string> <key>csr-active-config</key> <integer>127</integer> </dict> <key>Timestamp</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Version</key> <string>1.0.1</string> </dict> </plist>

    Okay, so what I found for the HD400 (i7-3770K) was the following: <key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key> <integer>0x01620005</integer> <string>Intel HD Graphics 4000</string> I have no idea if specific iterations of the HD4000 CPUs have different codes. I'm not really sure how to verify, or find more details. I spent around 40 minutes looking it up but kept getting unrelated results. --- I don't have the videocard yet. Can you tell me, does changing these values: Framebuffer, disable AtiInjection?True, disable IntelInjection? False, diss-Nvid?True before having the card cause the onboard Intel graphics to have problems? I will have to use the onboard graphics for around a week before buying/receiving the card. --- I looked it up, and VoodooHDA relates to audio. I plan to use the regular audio output from the TRS output, but plan to use HDMI audio output in the future, if I'm able to. Can you tell me the scenario where someone would want to DisableVoodooHDA? --- Lastly, I do not know what to put in for: <key>ProductId</key> <string>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</string> <key>HardwareAddress</key> <string>xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx</string> Were you stating that I don't need to change those 2 entries? I assume from your post that putting in the ROM entry as I did will work properly. Cheers.

    Okay, I went to SystemParameters=>Generate NEW:custom UUID and hit generate. I went to SMBios and pasted that UUID into the SmUUID field. I copied the Board Serial Number and went to RT Variables and pasted the Board Serial Number into the MLB field. I got the ROM number and BaseBoardSerial I assume BaseBoardSerial = BoardSerialNumber? I ask because some of the entries that Clover Configurator creates for it’s plist are named differently than on the OzmosisDefaults.plist you provided. I'm not sure where to put the ROM entry, just create an entry like this?: <key>ROM</key> <data>rC3ClxDQ</data> Also, am I supposed to paste the Custom UUID (5041F065-AF44-489C-8EF8-71B4F99710D0) anywhere in the OzmosisDefaults.plist? Lastly, is also the two following entries in the sample OzmosisDefaults.plist you provided that I dont have the data for: <key>ProductId</key> <string>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</string> <key>HardwareAddress</key> <string>xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx</string> Along with the top section having empty entries like the following: "AAPL,ig-platform-id" and "AtiFrameBuffer" etc… ------ Here is what I have so far: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Defaults:1F8E0C02-58A9-4E34-AE22-2B63745FA101</key> <dict> <key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key> <integer>xxxxxxxx</integer> <key>AtiFramebuffer</key> <string>xxxxxxxx</string> <key>BootEntryTemplate</key> <string>$label</string> <key>DarwinCoreStorageTemplate</key> <string>$label</string> <key>DarwinDiskTemplate</key> <string>$label</string> <key>DarwinRecoveryDiskTemplate</key> <string>$label ($platform.$major.$minor)</string> <key>DisableAtiInjection</key> <false/> <key>DisableIntelInjection</key> <false/> <key>DisableNvidaInjection</key> <true/> <key>DisableVoodooHda</key> <true/> <key>LinuxDiskOptionTemplate</key> <string>initrd=$initfs root=UUID=$uuid ro</string> <key>LinuxDiskTemplate</key> <string>$label $build</string> <key>LinuxRescueDiskTemplate</key> <string>$label Rescue</string> <key>LinuxRescueOptionTemplate</key> <string>initrd=$initfs root=UUID=$uuid ro</string> <key>TimeOut</key> <integer>5</integer> <key>UserInterface</key> <true/> </dict> <key>Defaults:4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102</key> <dict> <key>BaseBoardAssetTag</key> <string>Base Board Asset Tag#</string> <key>BaseBoardSerial</key> <string>C022104054NDNJKCB</string> <key>BiosReleaseDate</key> <string>08/08/2017</string> <key>BiosVersion</key> <string>IM131.88Z.010F.B00.1708080805</string> <key>BoardType</key> <integer>10</integer> <key>ChassisAssetTag</key> <string>iMac-Aluminum</string> <key>EnclosureType</key> <integer>13</integer> <key>FirmwareFeatures</key> <integer>3759006007</integer> <key>FirmwareFeaturesMask</key> <integer>4280287039</integer> <key>FirmwareVendor</key> <string>Apple</string> <key>HardwareAddress</key> <string>xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx</string> <key>Manufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>ProductFamily</key> <string>iMac</string> <key>ProductId</key> <string>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>iMac13,1</string> <key>SystemSKU</key> <string>System SKU#</string> <key>SystemSerial</key> <string>C02HD2I6DNCT</string> <key>SystemVersion</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> <key>Defaults:7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82</key> <dict> <key>boot-args</key> <string>darkwake=0</string> <key>csr-active-config</key> <integer>127</integer> </dict> <key>Timestamp</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Version</key> <string>1.0.1</string> </dict> </plist> Thanks again, of course.

    Okay, thanks. So, I have added those details to the OsmosisDefaults.plist. I attached an image showing what it now looks like. Am I supposed to now place that on the hidden EFI partition on the OZ folder then attempt to update the mac to the High Sierra OS? Also, I hope you get good sleep. I appreciate your time.

    Thanks for clarifying. I am usually pretty good at figuring things out, but I've become confused a bit on this process. It's probably not helping that I'm reading tutorials that don't really apply very well to my board. Does it matter if the option I chose doesn't match my processor? I am aware that you need to choose a recent model that is compatible with High Sierra in order for it to install. The closest one I saw was the iMac 13,1 with the i7 3770s. Does the processor serial number need to be updated in the Osmosis defaults fie? I didn't see one listed in the configurator.

    You mentioned "use the hack for SMBios copy from generated one" but I don't know which generated one you are referring to. I should probably mention I have never installed Clover before as I never needed to. Nearly everything worked back when I set up the computer using the Hermitlabs BIOS firmware and the audio kext. The only things that didn't work were iMessage, which I didn't care about, and the hardware sensors which, AFAIK needed FakeSMC, and I gave up trying to get them to work. I really am a novice at this point in the game. Most of the info I learned previously I no longer remember due to not using it for years. All of the tutorials I've looked at are for when using the clover bootloader, which I was under the impression was not needed for the QUO board. Am I mistaken?

    Thanks again. Im not sure why I am having so much of an issue, but I am obviously missing something. Ive looked up a bunch of tutorials regarding updating the SMBIOS, but when I open Clover Configurator, it says no config.plist found. I mounted the uefi partition and it does not have any plist file there. Im not able to get any values to load in the SMBIOS portion of the tool. I wish I remembered what I did years ago as I had updated my SMBIOS a few times, and changed my baseboard serial using the serial generator. Im sure you arent looking to hold the hand of a total novice, but any tips on what I seem to be confused on?
