  1. Hi, I noticed some weird behavior with macOS High Sierra. This system was working just fine on Sierra 10.12.5, until I decided to update to High Sierra (10.13.3). The upgrade process went mostly fine I guess, but it got stuck in an infinite spinning wheel which would just keep overlapping. I went into verbose mode, and sure enough, I found "IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0" repeating over and over along with ACM errors... I'm really lost right now. I can boot in recovery mode and safe mode just fine, when the graphics drivers aren't loaded. Web drivers aren't installed. I installed NvidiaGraphicsFixup, but it didn't fix the issue. I tried deleting the native graphics drivers from macOS and installing web drivers, but it didn't help. SMBIOS: iMac13,1 Graphics card: ASUS GT630-2GD3 (It's a Fermi card and it needs injection, so I modified my DSDT. Full graphics acceleration worked in Sierra. No Clover injection. I tried using Clover injection instead, I saw no difference.) CPU: Intel Core i3-3210, iGPU disabled in UEFI All kexts updated to their latest versions, along with Clover. For more info, you can refer to the GitHub issue where I posted it. https://github.com/lvs1974/NvidiaGraphicsFixup/issues/3 Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time! config.plist
  2. Hi, i have a little old mobo with socket 1156 no Sata 3 - biostar tpower i55 and i Was wondering if i had some chance to install a new nvme memory like Intel 760p. Due lack of support by my mobo i found a Pci Express card lycom dt-120 to expand my connectivity. After some researches i understood that i need a ‘bios support for the boot from nvme disk’. I want some of these nvme memory to install high Sierra and get a killer desktop. I think that i haven’t obviously a native bios support cause my mobo is pretty old, so i can’t get an nvme disk and install properly high Sierra hoping that boot? Or should i catch anyway? I Guess that same problem is for w10? Thanks, Gabriele.
  3. Hey guys, I'm trying to install High Sierra onto the following hardware: Asus Prime Z370 A, 8700K, Radeon Pro WX 7100, (Which I've read can be made to work here My main problem is that I can't get past the initial OsxAptioFix2Drv screen without one of the following issues: "Does printf work?" or just that line with all the crosses on it and it freezes. I have tried with a number of EFI folders/setups including my own and other premade ones I have found around the shop. Anyone have any ideas what I should do? Cheers, DynaFEX.
  4. Hallo, habe versucht nach der Anleitung von http://x220.mcdonnelltech.com/ auf einen X220 i7 zu installieren, bisher leider erfolglos. kann mir jemand die angehangenen Log Meldungen interpretieren und einen Tip geben an welcher Stelle ich weiter probieren muss. Habe es schon mit den folgenden Bootparametern probiert -v -x -s -f cpus=1 maxmem=4096 GraphicsEnabler=No -no-zp Es war ein 8 GB Speicherriegel gesteckt und die "neue" WLAN Karte, außerdem ist zusätzlich zur MSATA eine weitere HDD installiert.
  5. Hi everyone. I installed MacOS High Sierra on my computer 3 months ago, in January. After a long way to get the computer fully working now I'm facing a new problem: imagine I'm working or doing something in my computer and it suddenly freezes and I have to restart it. There's no reason why the computer restarts by itself... Here I also attach my Clover EFI folder in case you need it (it doesn't allow me to attach it so here i give you the link: https://mega.nz/#!92xCiLDZ!WY1F55ZvuP-9WW369EP9KY-3hNLt5sWUgJDxPrbgpPM . Thank you in advance.
  6. Hi there, The title says everything, I got a perfect build, with everything I want, but when I shutdown my hack it turns into rebooting. The build is in my signature. I've tried fix_shutdown in clover, and other patches, and none seem to work. Thanks.

  8. Gigabyte R9 390 in High Sierra

    Hello, I have problems by using my R9 390 in High Sierra. In Sierra my card is working well by doing the steps which Si Vis Pacem wrote hear. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/315027-amd-r9-390-framebuffer-issue-on-1012-sierra/?p=2292376 Except that I don't activate Enable AtiInjection and don't force Framebuffer. In High Sierra I tried the same procedure but the displays aren't showing anything except a black picture. Tried only one Display at DP,HDMI or DVI but doesn't work neither. In Sierra I can use my displays both attached to the R9 390 at DP and DVI. Do you have any ideas what I could try? Greetings
  9. Hi! I did my subscription here someday in the past, now I decided to reactivate this account because I need some help (what a selfish guy), but maybe I will be here more frequently because I have an old mac to play and you'll going to like it, though... Back to the point, I have a Macbook Pro mid 2012 with SSD and 8GB. For months, Apple has asked me to upgrade from macOSX Sierra to High Sierra. When 10.13.2 came out I decided to do it, probably the system will be polished enough... but no! I did some tests as soon I finished the upgrade and it seemed ok. The critical issue I saw only days after, but I forgot to save a copy of old Sierra to come back, and now I am jammed with a major glitch... ok, will stop complaining! The problem: The graphics of the Intel HD 4000 are not working properly. All effects are slow, like my old MacMini with GMA 950 - screen freezes all the time. To see movies in Youtube, I have to keep mouse pointer moving over the video, or it will freeze, only audio keep going. Netflix seems an slideshow. The difference is huge because graphics runs fast in Sierra, running games like Outlast very smoothly. After some research and some unanswered questions, I discover that Clover boot loader has a configurator that allows deep manually configuration. I saw a video from a guy that changes the setting for card to "low definition" and it will work again. I was up to install Clover boot loader but it states that is not made for High Sierra, so I am almost back in the square zero. I know now that there is a way of to change the graphics configuration, however is risky. To change so much the system was not what I have in mind, Clover was made to freak hackers making frankenmacs etc, I use my Mac to code, design, to see Netflix and play some horror survival games! So here is my questions: Should I take the risk of force install Clover boot loader or there is another way to change that config?
  10. Hi guys, i'm trying to help a friend of mine trying to install osx(possibly high sierra) on his pc with the following specs: Amd fx8350 Asrock 990fx extreme 3 8gb of fury Kingston ddr3 ram(2x4) Radeon hd 7950 128gb ssd( crucial m550) A couple of hdds I don't remember the brand(maybe a seagate barracuda and a dumb old disk for data) We tried to install it using the regular clover+high showers installer but we couldn't get it to reach the installer, then we tried osx-amd(don't know if i can talk about it there, sorry if i can't) and we still couldn't get to the installer. Is there a guide i can use to install osx in that machin, i tried to search in the forum but i couldn't find it.
  11. Buonasera a tutti, ho installato con successo macOS High Sierra 10.13 su un notebook Toshiba C660 con le seguenti caratteristiche: Intel Core i5 2410M Ram 4 GB Chipset Intel HM65 Wi-Fi + BT Atheros AR5B195 (AR9285+ AR3011 Combo) Geforce NVIDIA 315M 1024MB Audio Realtek ALC269 Funziona più o meno tutto, o meglio funzionava poiché ho effettuato l'aggiornamento da macOS 10.3 a macOS 10.3.3 e non ha più funzionato l'audio. Fino alla versione 10.3 ero riuscito a farlo funzionare grazie ad AppleALC.kext cui dipende da Lilu.kext. Ovviamente entrambi i Kext sono aggiornati alle ultime versioni disponibili, ed inutile dire che ho provato più volte a reinstallarli. Si trovano sia in S/L/E che nella partizione EFI dedicata di Clover. Prima durante il boot in verbose vedevo qualcosa come "Sound assertion in AppleHDAController at line 451", cosa che non vedo più dopo l'aggiornamento. Una volta avviato, l'icona dell'audio è praticamente grigia, mentre dalle impostazioni dice "Non è stato trovato nessun dispositivo di uscita". Ringrazio chiunque voglia aiutarmi.
  12. Hi all, I'm new on this forum but I have some experience installing hackintosh infact I have a hackintosh running El Capitan.

  13. I have a HP Elitebook 8460P i5 2520M 2.49ghz 8GB ram laptop running High Sierra 10.13.1. I cant get it to update to 10.13.3 no matter what i try. App store or downloading the updates from apple website either single or combo updates. All fail. Downloading from the app store asks for a reboot to install, starts to install, says ETA then part way through just goes to a black screen no reboot no nothing just powered on doing nothing for hours. After rebooting manually i have a new option in clover MacOS install from hdd. booting it causes the system to endlessly reboot update wont install. however if i boot from the os not the update, system will start in 10.13.1 again. I recorded the verbose output during the install but it happens very fast, (less then 1 second a lot of text) so i recorded in 240fps slo-mo in some bad lighting unfortunately time of day it is, so hope its readable. Any idea why i cant install the 10.13.3 updates? I have tried app store, manual 10.13.1 > 10.13.2, manual 10.13.1 > 10.13.3 combo File is to big to attach here (145mb) so here is a youtube link to my verbose boot i am getting with the update install. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iq2owXaUy4o

  15. Olá: Antes do OS X 10.12 (Sierra) era possível utilizar o teclado microsoft padrão ABNT2 com 100% de comatibilidade. Após o 10.12 algumas teclas estão invertidas, como o pipe ( | ) invertido com as aspas duplas ( " ) e os colchetes ( [ ] ). Já procurei no google por alguma solução, mas só encontro postagens antigas que não resolvem o problema. Alguém tem alguma dica? Obrigado.
  16. Hello! I've been running High Sierra (Currently 10.13.3) on VMWare Player 12.5.9. I'm running it on a Dell XPS 15 9560 with the 4k screen. Currently I'm able to run OSX in either Native 4k resolution, or scaled to 1080p. I wanted to know if it was possible to add a 1440p scaled mode? Right now if I force 1440p resolution using VMWare tools, I simply get a smaller window with the virtual machine. So, as I understand, I need to add a HiDPI version of the resolution. Can anyone lend a helping hand? Thank you!

  19. usb 3.0s?

    HI, i've installed high sierra a while ago and never really used it that much but i got bored of w10 so i've decided to use it as my daily driver for a while and i noticed that usb 3.0 ports don't work with usb 3 devices and only with usb 2.0 devices(capped at the 480mb/s limit of usb 2.0), is there a way to get past that? i couldn't find it in this forum, i don't need the speed that much for right now(even tho i might since i shoot in raw and usb 2.0 is slow for file transfer of big photos or videos i take on holidays or on days off) but i'd like to at least be able to use the usb 3.0s with my usb 3 devices and hub. Hope that i write this post correctly, english is not my main language. ps i don't need because i'm on lan but does it exist a driver/kext for intel wifi/bluetooth combo integrated in my z87 mpower(centrino 2200) ? bluetooth works already.
  20. Hi, I have a OSX 10.13.2 High Sierra guest running on Win7 pro. The guest is only used to configure idevice with Apple configurator2. guest and host as the latest itunes version and driver. I use an iPhone 6 and 6S and it's working perfectly, my problem started when I got 2 new iphone8+ (and later while writing the post, using an iPhone SE, same problem), on the host machine, no problem at all, they work and they are displayed in itunes. When I connect to guest, the loop start and I have to physically disconnect the usb cable for it to stop, trying the right-click on icon and connect/disconnect host... not working, it give me a unknown error. I was running Workstation Pro 12.5, so I decide to upgrade to 14.1.1, same problem. I tried on the Player 14, same problem... BUT, once, only once it work and I was able to see the device in Configurator and apply the profile that I needed. I also have a WinXP and a Win7 VM, and they can connect to the iphone8, so look like it's not an issue with the host/vmware application... VMTools is up to date Set to USB 2.0, Use the PC USB 2.0 or 3.0 port, with or without a USB hub (all those options work with the iphone 6/6s) The "usb.quirks.device0 = "0xvid:0xpid" config been tested and not working I delete all the files in c:\users\vmware\... I tested a new fresh guest machine from scratch, same result (so I can get narrow out a faulty .vmx file) The result is always the same... loop reconnect/disconnect on the guest machine, I hear the "dong" sound on Win7 when usb device is connect looping with the idevice sound when it connect... This is the log file for the iphone6s with the connection working 2018-02-13T18:54:01.302-05:00| vmx| I125: USB: Found device [name:Apple\ iPhone vid:05ac pid:12a8 path:1/9/0/9/2/3 speed:high family:vendor,audio,hid,imaging virtPath:ehci:0 instanceId:USB\\VID_0E0F&PID_0001\\xxx serialnum:xxx arbRuntimeKey:6 quirks:slow-reconnect ownerdisplay:OS\ 10.13.2\ High\ Sierra version:3], connected to ehci port 0. 2018-02-13T18:54:01.302-05:00| vmx| I125: USB: Device [name:Apple\ iPhone vid:05ac pid:12a8 path:1/9/0/9/2/3 speed:high family:vendor,audio,hid,imaging virtPath:ehci:0 instanceId:USB\\VID_0E0F&PID_0001\\xxx serialnum:xxx arbRuntimeKey:6 quirks:slow-reconnect ownerdisplay:OS\ 10.13.2\ High\ Sierra version:3] should already be connected And this is the iPhone8+ that doesn't work 2018-02-13T19:23:39.465-05:00| vmx| I125: USB: Found device [name:Apple\ iPhone vid:05ac pid:12a8 path:1/9/0/9/2/3 speed:high family:vendor,audio,hid,imaging virtPath:ehci:0 instanceId:USB\\VID_0E0F&PID_0001\\xxx serialnum:xxx disconnected:1 arbRuntimeKey:8 quirks:slow-reconnect ownerdisplay:OS\ 10.13.2\ High\ Sierra version:3], connected to ehci port 0. 2018-02-13T19:23:39.465-05:00| vmx| I125: USB: Device [name:Apple\ iPhone vid:05ac pid:12a8 path:1/9/0/9/2/3 speed:high family:vendor,audio,hid,imaging virtPath:ehci:0 instanceId:USB\\VID_0E0F&PID_0001\\xxx serialnum:xxx disconnected:1 arbRuntimeKey:8 quirks:slow-reconnect ownerdisplay:OS\ 10.13.2\ High\ Sierra version:3] should already be connected I highlighted the only difference between both.

  21. Hi I am try to install High Sierra, as per ##### I have have successfully booted from the install usb drive and have booted into "Install macOS High Sierra". I had to add a boot flag (-no_compat_check) to the clover bootloader in order for the usb stick to boot properly. Also, at first I couldn't see the SSD drive in disk utility, but I fixed that by asking disk utility to show all drives. Onto the current problem. I am having major issues trying to install High Sierra to a NVMe SSD. When I run "Install macOS High "Sierra" I get the following error: "The version of macOS installed on this mac is newer than the version you are trying to install. When a new update is available, you can install it from the Updates plane in the Mac App Store. If you want to reinstall macOS, please use macOS recovery." Also, It doesn't matter if the startup volume is formatted as APFS or HFS+. If I format the drive using GPARTED on linux, the installer just says the startup volume doesn't have journaling enable. If I then run disk utility and enable journaling on the startup volume, then go back to the installer, I get the aforementioned error msg. I have the following specs: i9-7900. Asus Prime X299 Deluxe. ADATA 512GB NVMe SSD. How do I fix this issue?

I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide: Dual-boot clean install (on one drive): 1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart, 3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition). Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive): If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope: You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it). (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB) 1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac. 2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created. 3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image. 4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb. 5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT! 6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above. 7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS! (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.) IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE: Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc): Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found) It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI, but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_Q8uPkwcWQ Here some pictures:
  24. Even with High Sierra, the Optiplex780 / 760 is not quite at the end. We're still playing! the Optiplex story: 10.10: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302877-guide-yosemite-1010x-dell-optiplex-780-760/ 10.11: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308097-guide-el-capitan-1011x-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/ 10.12: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312656-guide-macos-sierra-1012-dell-optiplex-780-760-755-790-990/ 10.13: this guide Note: High Sierra supports only CPUs with SSE4 support, example: my Q9400 or my Q8200 working with Sierra. Core2Duo E7200 / Core2Quad Q8200 or higher works as well. See CPU-X.app for your CPU !!! For a direct update from 10.12 to 10.13, you first install the latest version of Clover. Copy your Kext's from Clover/kexts/10.12 to /other. Note new BIOS data and firmware data in Clover's config.plist in SMBIOS. For more information read on. Instructions for Clean Install: 1. Download Install macOS High Sierra.app 2. CreateInstall USB flash drive (8GB) with terminal (If problems with USB, then create internal Install HDD): sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 3. Install current version Clover for HighSierra-Support to your Install medium (Legacy-Method): Install Clover in the ESP Bootloader / Install boot0af in the MBR CloverEFI / Clover-EFI 64Bit SATA Drivers64UEFI / EmuVariableUefi-64 Drivers64UEFI / OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Drivers64UEFI / PartitionDxe-64 Install RC Scripts In Target Volume optional: Theme, free choice Install Clover Preference Pane 4. Copy your config.plist and DSDT from your Sierra HDD or SSD or new users from here mount your EFI partition DSDT.aml insert to EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/ config.plist insert to EFI/Clover/ Attention! New bios data and new firmware data. Use current version CloverConfigurator! Example Optiplex780/760: my_DSDT.aml.zip (my DSDT, optimized for Core2Quad, configured for HD5450 and Audio LayoutID 13 (0D) for AppleALC + Lilu. Additionally Framebuffer in the Clover is "Shrike" for the HD 5450) my_config.plist.zip (Create serial number, board serial number, MLB, ROM !!!)

Copy your kexts of your Sierra HDD or SSD to EFI/Clover/kexts/other/ Example760/780: these are my kexts for 10.13: other.zip 6. Important preparation with HD5450 (780/760/755) With High Sierra, there is a black screen with the HD5450, because C2D and C2Q have no Injector iGPU. Since High Sierra, the HD5450 needs a rollback from Sierra. WhateverGreen.kext + Lilu.kext does not work with LegacyBios, unfortunately. Save in advance the following Kext's from your Sierra installation from /System/Library/Extensions: AMDRadeonX3000.kext AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle IOAccelerator2D.plugin IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext Note: Optiplex 790 (or higher) with i? CPU with Injector GPU does not require rollback. 7. apfs.efi This is the current apfs.efi from 10.13.4 DP2: apfs.efi.zip The current original apfs.efi can be found after each install or update in usr/standalone/i386/ (use ShowAllFiles!). The new file system is only for SSDs. HDDs continue to work with HFS+. copy the apfs.efi to EFI/Clover/drivers64/ 8. Now High Sierra install on your HDD or SSD (Partitions with Guid scheme) The installation, even with subsequent updates, can take place in several steps. My experiences: APFS two steps HFS+ one step 8.1 With the HD5450 there is a black screen the first time after the install. I take the SSD out of the Dell and connect it to another Mac. Here I am using the app "EasyKext Pro" and doing the rollback from the backup (step 6 above - AMDRadeonX3000.kext, AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle, IOAccelerator2D.plugin and IOAcceleratorFamily2.kext from Sierra 10.12.6). Reinstall SSD in the Dell and now we get a picture in High Sierra. after installation: 9. Terminal (for unsigned apps) sudo spctl --master-disable 10. Install Clover on your HDD or SSD (Legacy-Method): Install Clover in the ESP Bootloader / Install boot0af in the MBR CloverEFI / Clover-EFI 64Bit SATA Drivers64UEFI / EmuVariableUefi-64 Drivers64UEFI / OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Drivers64UEFI / PartitionDxe-64 Install RC Scripts In Target Volume optional: Theme, free choice Install Clover Preference Pane 11.

  25. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and I'm a little lost ... I am looking for a shopping guide (a bit like tonymac which is very good, I come here because of an ethical problem of tonymacs http://goo.gl/WdPxAy). I currently have a machine with the following config: CPU i5-4570 Mb Asus H87M-PLUS RAM 16GB Kingstone HyperX Blue SSD Intel 128GB GPU Gainware Nvidia GTX 650 Ti It works pretty well apart few random crashes ... It was installed with *beast tools... I manually installed and configured clover and I want to make a new machine with a clean and much more advanced installation. I wanted a multibooting to Win10 Pro and Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.3 (in preference but it can be Sierra 10.12 for stability) I started looking at material: CPU i7-7700K Mb Gigabyte Aorus GA-Z270X-GAMING K5 / Gigabyte GA-Z270N-WIFI / Gigabyte GA-B250M-D3H / Gigabyte GA-H270M-DS3H RAM HyperX Fury Noir 16 Go (2x 8Go) DDR4 2133 MHz CL14 SSD Samsung 840 EVO 256GB Sata III GPU Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 2G What do you think about this ?
