  1. Look in this guide.... Step 8, and then under that subsection, step 7 starts with opening Config in clover configurator. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308097-guide-el-capitan-1011x-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/
  2. Sorry, the Video kexts rollback is something I have not had to deal with because I upgraded to 790 and 990.
  3. I use TeamViewer, but have not used it in a while. Are your Bios Settings Correct, and is the Hard Drive seen in your Bios?
  4. Did you rollback kexts as explained in Step 6 & 8?
  5. There are new Bios updates that came out. I think these were to address the security defects in the kernel? I updated both my 790 and 990 without issue.
  6. Well, glad all is well. Just wanted to mention that I have flashed bios on these many times without windows installed. I use Hiren's boot CD, load Mini-XP, C&P bios file from usb drive to desktop, then flash bios. 5 minutes or less, start to finish.
  7. Yeah, I was wondering more people from High Sierra Guide have not migrated to this thread, but i think you answered that question. I have been using Optiplex 790, and 990 for 2 years now, and have not had to deal with some of the issues people have been having with the older models.
  8. Yeah, for the money, an SSD is probably the best bang for the buck for added performance. Not sure why it is not being detected on each boot. No issues at all with the 3 that I have.
  9. Check your bios settings. If you start the computer, press F2, go into bios settings. Is the Hard Drive listed in the bios? Did you change the Drive settings from Sata to AHCI? Hard drive checked as a boot device?
  10. I do not use NULLCPUPowerManagement.kext. I do use AppleIntelCPUM option in Clover. Maybe not always needed with a compatible smbios, but I use it, or I get a panic. According to WiKi Page... AppleIntelCPUPM <key>AppleIntelCPUPM</key> <true/> AsusAICPUPM key was renamed to AppleIntelCPUPM. Some vendors, like ASUS, restrict the use of MSR register 0xE2 in their power management module to ReadOnly. On Sandy/Ivy Bridge systems the kext AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement will try to write to this register and cause a kernel panic. This patch will eliminate the kext's write operations.
  11. Pretty trouble free install to 10.13.4. Takes 2 or 3 seconds longer to boot now. Time for a faster CPU. lol Was surprised that nightshift was still working without edits.
  12. Q9550 - $32 Optiplex 790 i5 Core - $95 Worth an extra $30 for quad core upgrade? Just my opinion, no.
  13. My 790 was doing the same when I first got it. Solution was in the bios settings. I cannot remember which one it was at this moment, but I found it with a google search. It was doing the restart with Windows and Mac OSX. Also, make sure your bios is up to date.
  14. My 790 has an i7 Core CPU, and I think I paid about $190 for that almost 2 years ago now. The HD5450 Graphics card was $20 after a $10 rebate. Throw in a Solid State Hard Drive, a nice 27" Monitor, and, according to a couple of my buddies, its every bit as functional as their iMacs. I have about $450 in my 790 i7 Core, but wiithout the SSD, and getting the i5 core, which is still a fast CPU, you could put one together for about $300 - $350, and thats including a decent monitor. You can't beat that.
