    Retrocomputing Qs

    https://support.apple.com/kb/sp517?locale=en_US https://support.apple.com/kb/SP575?locale=en_US Leopard and Snow Leopard require a late 32bit CPU minimum (eg: some P4, Pentium M, Core Solo/Core Duo, etc.) and a compatible graphics card (eg: GMA900 or GMA950 or other supported discrete card). With regards to AMD platforms, these always require a special kernel to support non-Intel CPUs. For the rest, scrounge the Net for emulators. You'll find a few.

    Sierra on Core 2 Duo 2007 iMac??

    macOS Sierra (and later) requires a CPU with SSE4 instructions set and this was introduced in late Penryn/Wolfdale C2D generation. All 2007 iMac models were based on previous Merom CPU generation and these do not possess those SSE4 requirements so El Capitan will be the end of the line; 10.11 remains perfectly usable today though. By all means, identify your exact CPU and/or iMac model to confirm the situation.

    the installation failed

    You should stick to Clover with High Sierra. Why? Because, even though Enoch boots HiSie without issues, it's not capable to cater for HiSie updates installation. As a newbie, you're not at a stage where you master the subtleties of mixing updates with Clover and regular booting with Enoch.
  4. Probably missing the AICPUPM patch. Post a zipped copy of yourClover EFI folder.

    Fenvi FV-T919

    Nothing new, I think, going back to 2016 or so; might have been called T919A at the time... All those cards based on BCM94360 and advertised for Mac work OOB like on a real Mac.

    10.10 to 10.14 update kernel panic

    Ancient/outdated stuff. Add-on kexts and configuration will need serious revisiting/refreshing for Mojave... Post a zipped copy of your Clover EFI folder (less Themes subfolder). Try and post link for systems specs to English/US site; not everyone speaks French...
  7. Well, as I said, you either set Inject Intel + Haswell desktop layout-id OR inject Lilu + WEG. It seems you do both... NB: no need to quote messages you directly reply to. If you must, use @<pseudo> instead; it's far more appropriate.
  8. No need to quote every message you directly reply to...
  9. You download the High Sierra installation package off Apple/AppStore. You may then run the app and attempt to upgrade directly. Or you built a fresh High Sierra installer with the app you've just downloaded and proceed with a fresh installation of High Sierra over your existing OS X/macOS installation/partition. If opting for the 1st option, it may be wise to prepare a USB Installer, "just in case"...
  10. You may try the direct update on download completion. It normally works with Clover. Failing that, the fresh install overwrite will do just fine.
  11. If you look at your Clover config, you should notice that you're injecting a dummy layout-id 0x12345678 for graphics. That's obviously never going to be of any help towards obtaining graphics acceleration... If you Inject Intel (and you do), you have to inject desktop HD4600 layout-id 0x0d220003. You should also use a Haswell desktop SMBIOS such as iMac14,x or iMac15,x for your platform rather than MBA6,2 which is inappropriate... Finally, you either Inject Intel + Haswell layout or inject Lilu + WEG kexts, not both; they're normally mutually exclusive. There would be a few things to say about some of the kexts you inject that are not relevant to your platform. But that's another story... I strongly recommend you start by adjusting your incorrect Clover config with Clover Configurator app. NB: no links to TMX please...

    Make sure you have vanilla AppleHDA kext in /S/L/E Install Lilu + AppleALC kexts (latest versions) Experiment with the various audio layouts for ALC236 https://github.com/acidanthera/Lilu/releases https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/wiki/Supported-codecs https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/releases
  13. You're not using the same configuration between the 2 x installations, that'll explain the difference in results... Open up your config files with Clover Configurator, you'll see the differences immediately: ACPI settings (including CPU power management) CPU settings SMBIOS settings etc.
  14. Don't waste your time trying to get an Intel wireless card to work, it won't. There's no support whatsoever for Intel cards under OS X/macOS. Very obviously, there was no hope to be had by trying to use the abandonned stuff you linked to which clearly indicates it's not reached anything beyond trying to initialise those cards; so ... -> Use a supported card or a USB adapter instead, knowing that you may of course use a laptop's card in a Mini PCIe/M.2 to PCIe (x1) adapter as illustrated on the blog related to the above dead project. https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11138-inventory-of-supportedunsupported-wireless-cards-2-sierra-mojave/
  15. You would probably need to patch your Capri framebuffer. You may look here for details. Looking at your Clover config, there are quite a lot of properties injected in the Device section. Did you set that up on your own does this result from something you collected somewhere? Because you inject all sorts of Nvidia and ATI/AMD properties as well as several properties for your HD4000 iGPU @00020000. The kexts folder of the zipped EFI you posted is empty so it's impossible to comment on what you may or may not have installed on that matter. Clearly, you're not injecting any kexts at startup with such a config. My recommendation would be to clear out all those graphics properties you're injecting and seat afresh with basic stuff as per the Capri patching guide linked above. Don't hesitate to post an IORegistryExplorer extract.
