I guess it needs new developments...

 

At present, I've found no other solution than a Clover USB key to boot the "install macOS from..." partition & complete fresh High Sierra installations and/or updates... Enoch does not see/show such temporary partitions (in a similar way it cannot boot Recovery partitions).

 

Once

  • the High Sierra installation and/or update has completed
  • CoreStorage been reverted
  • the cache been rebuilt
Enoch can then boot the High Sierra partition again.

 

give it a try... (not tested...)

v2905 --> removed

 

I add the "macOS Install Data" entry into disk.c

I have still Enoch 2905 wich boots 10.13.2 without any issues but I had to use a Clover pen to see the mac os install partition. I must check your new file in my next installation.

Any news?

Still didn't work here with GPT.

As my test, it will load /macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files/prelinkedkernel, but did not mount BaseSystem.dmg.

 

We need to boot with /macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files/prelinkedkernel

and mount as rootdmg-ramdisk auth-root-dmg=file:///macOS%20Install%20Data/Locked%20Files/BaseSystem.dmg

 

refer to /macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files/com.apple.Boot.plist

<?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"><plistversion="1.0">

ErmaC, Regards. I am using Enoch-rev.2905_v2 along with FileNVRAM.dylib_rc6 and the NVRAM is not working. It does NOT generate the NVRAM.plist. At the moment I use El Capitan.

Hi stinga11,

where you expect to find the generated nvram.plist file?

Pls try the latest one 2908 --> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/71-enoch/

 

Include the RC8 of FileNVRAM

@crazybirdy or all

can you tell me exactly where the new (temp?) files (I mean in 10.13) are stored

when and update as been done? Can you check it maybe looking from other OSX where those file/folder are stored?

 

I'm a bit lost with this...

If the volume is /Volumes/Mac10131, when update to 10.13.2 from app store, it will auto-make a directory as /Volumes/Mac10131/macOS Install Data/ before restart to install the update.

 

Enoch need to boot with the updating boot system as below, to finish the updating.

 

/Volumes/Mac10131/macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files/SystemVersion.plist

/Volumes/Mac10131/macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files/prelinkedkernel

/Volumes/Mac10131/macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files/com.apple.Boot.plist

/Volumes/Mac10131/macOS Install Data/Locked Files/BaseSystem.dmg

 

I guess you mean this.

Thanks for this new Enoch 2908 which can boot to the first stage of update process of High Sierra, but it always hanged after showing up of bright white Apple icon and installation icon and unable to complte the first stage of update.

It's a break-through and near success now.

How to fix it ?

boot_v2905_v2 helped me in updating 10.12.6 to 10.13.2 on QEMU/KVM. Pre 2905_v2 every boot ended up with  "ParseTagdate Unimplemented". However, I have noticed two problems:

- Running a 10.12.2 can't download 10.13.2 from Apple store. I have to update to 10.12.6 first before download starts.

- Shutting down 10.13.2 hangs the virtual machine. This is worse of these two since it leaves VMs running when they should be deleted.

I've noticed that my Haswell/HD 4600 Dell Latitude E6440 still can't fully boot High Sierra with r2905 or r2908. No problem booting all earlier OS X/macOS releases up to Sierra.

I am not getting any verbose at all  in SL up to Mountain Lion if using v2905  or v2908. im am just getting a blank screen untill the login appears. As if the verbose (-v) function does not work. All is OK in Mavericks to HS.

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.

      - Ryzen 5 - 2600
      - Radeon Pro 580 GPU

      (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) 
       
      Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes...
      ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2"
      Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX.
       
      So can someone help...

      I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen.
      In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1
      In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67
      In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well)
       
      But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help...
      Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...

      Just so you all know I actually have done something. I have pushed the source to both my github and to sourceforge, please commit to the experimental branch and I will merge it into the stable branch once it is safe. Also, nothing meaningful happens yet so don't get too excited. Only the Visual studio build works right now. I haven't set up the Xcode or Makefile builds yet, I'm trying to do them now.
