  1. Clover probably isn’t running off the flash drive. Are you sure you’re booting from the flash drive? Do you have a Clover install on another drive in your machine? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That's what I would do. I've seen that screen before when, in my excitement to get up and running, I've forgotten to install Clover
  3. I’m using an Orico card in my system. Works OOB in High Sierra. Details in signature. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. No issues here. 1.6GHz (x12) on all cores at idle.
  5. You definitely shouldn't have it installed in both locations. Install it on EFI only, put your DSDT in ACPI/patched, your kexts in kexts/10.13 and apfs.efi in drivers64. Recent builds of clover will auto switch to VESA mode when NVIDIA driver is outdated or not working for whatever reason, so you shouldn't need to enter the nv_disable=1 flag on boot. Very hard to diagnose remotely. If I were you, I would create fresh 10.13.1 install media with the latest version of Clover (4268) and start again from scratch. Having Clover installed in both the root of your drive and EFI partition is a recipe for disaster.
  6. Plugins go in fakesmc > contents > plugins (see fakesmc I attached in post 1659 which already includes plugins). Re graphics card – no that's not normal. Re Apple ID, what do you mean by legitimate credentials? An Apple ID used to make purchases on the App Store or iTunes will always be linked to a credit card in your name, so trying to mask your identity by using some anonymous email address to create your Apple ID is futile. I’ve never had an issue signing into iCloud/App Store/iTunes. I use iMessage and FaceTime to make and receive texts and calls from my hack and iCloud Drive to sync my desktop and documents with my MacBook Pro and everything works like a charm. I’ve even had support calls with Apple (about things other than my hack, obviously) and mentioned that I have two machines and they’ve never said anything. The one thing I never do on my hack is allow Apple and app developers to collect usage data. I think that’s the best you can do to hide the fact that you use a hackintosh. Creating a new Apple ID to use specifically on your hack won’t do anything but compromise your experience. Clover r4268 worked for me. No KPs. NVIDIA injection only works on older cards (8xxx, 9xxx, 2xx, 4xx, 610, and 630).
  7. The installation completes on reboot. Just boot into your normal system partition and let it finish then install the latest NVIDIA driver and reboot again. Your kexts should be in /Other or /10.13. Personally, I use /Other but in this case it shouldn't make any difference which you use.
  8. 10.13.1 installed without issue. New NVIDIA Web Driver required: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/324195-nvidia-web-driver-updates-for-macos-high-sierra-update-01112017/page-1?do=findComment&comment=2435523
  9. Here's most of what you should need including my config.plist, apfs.efi, a copy of the HW Monitor app, Clover Configurator and the kexts you'll need for your 970 and LAN. You'll have to edit config.plist to generate your own serial number, MLB and ROM values using Clover Configurator. No need to edit fakesmc's info.plist these days. Feel free to use the one I've included in the attachment which also includes the plugins required for HW Monitor. You'll have to generate and patch your own DSDT. I imagine most (but probably not all) of the patches outlined in post 1 of this thread will also apply to your board. Once you're up and running in High Sierra, install the latest version of Clover (https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/) and don't forget to copy apfs.efi to the drviers64 folder on the EFI partition of your system drive. Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on. 10.13 X58-NVIDIA files.zip
  10. Successfully updated to High Sierra. No problems using latest Clover, NVIDIA Web Driver, lilu.kext v1.2 and NvidiaGraphicsFixup_1.2.1 with my GTX 970, as per @ROBASEFR instructions. Only issue I encountered was my internal SATA HDDs not mounting. SunKi's AppleAHCIPort patch fixed the problem. <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>fix IO error ICH10 for 10.13, credit SunKi</string> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.13.x</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Find</key> <data>RYX2D5XCiciD4P5mhcl4D4TSdQs=</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>iciD4P5mhckPmMFBCMyQkJCQdQs=</data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>fix hotplug ICH10 for 10.13, credit SunKi</string> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.13.x</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Find</key> <data>icglQGACAD1AIAAAdQyB4b9///+Ji1EBAAA=</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>kJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJCQkJA=</data> </dict>
  11. Nice. Any installation drama we should know about?
  12. No idea. I've been using MacPro5,1 since 2012.
  13. I don't know what caused it so there's no guarantee it'll work for you, no. So far so good for me though. I've successfully shut the machine down more than a dozen times under a variety of conditions (pre and post sleep, pre and post NVIDIA web driver installation, etc).
  14. Hey folks, only just had a chance to take another look at this. I did a clean install and haven't experienced the shutdown issue since.
