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?

In the root or in the extra folder (I know it's hidden)

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 ?

I need more investigation then...

sorry...

 

EDIT: w8... I wrote a stupid typo... (I think... :blush: )

now is...

"macOS%20Install%20Data"

was...

"macOS Install Data"

try now -> attachicon.gifboot_v2905_v2.zip

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.

Same here; I only see the messages that come out up to the point of resolution switch, then screen goes dark for the rest of the time until the desktop appears.  Have the backend verbose messages been disabled? How do I get them back?

Booting an El Cap partition; testing latest Enoch in prep for a HS upgrade.  Also, when booting to a different El Cap (test) partition, machine shuts down 5-10 seconds after screen goes dark--no message preceding it to indicate why.

I'm struggling to get El Capitan installed/working consistently.

 

The most frustrating aspect of this is that VERBOSE booting in Enoch seems to have been removed or is broken.  Any word on that?  Why?  This doesn't make any sense to me.

 

At first I thought it was El Capitan that had removed support for verbose booting..  Then I started seeing people posting screenshots of El Capitan booting with verbose messages.  I was confused, I still thought it must be some other setting over-riding it or somehow preventing it or something.  Now I've discovered that others are experiencing the same things with Enoch so at least my mystery is solved.  But what I don't understand is how/why this happened, and even more so:   why it hasn't been fixed?!

 

It looks like someone has figured out when the problem started so I'll be able to install an earlier version and get back to diagnosing my problems with El Capitan without having having to reboot into another OS just to be able to look at the logs since I can't see those messages as it's booting.

 

El Capitan has quickly proved to be the most problematic version of MacOS to get working since my first hackintosh installing Leopard!

Trying to find a link to download a version which I hope will not prevent verbose booting messages was very convoluted and felt like a wild goose chase!

But I finally found one....   here! &nbsp;(2902)  I guess we'll see in a few moments whether it does what I need or if I'll have to keep searching.

 

It would be nice if previous versions were a little easier to find!  (Maybe they are but I'm just not clever enough to find them?)

 

Especially when there is such a MAJOR bug or deficiency—or whatever you want to call it!  I mean, to me at least: being able to see the boot messages is CRUCIAL whenever there's a problem, or the potential for there to be one (after any update or change to the configuration/settings, etc.)   I'm still rather shocked and almost in disbelief that such an issue exists and hasn't been dealt with/fixed for SIX months!   I suppose it must mean that there aren't that many people using it...

Clover is not an option I am seriously considering because it takes 5 minutes or longer to even reach the boot screen on my motherboard!  I haven't been able to fix that; I assume it must be my motherboard.  Plus, El Capitan has the slowest boot times I've ever experienced in OS X since I started with Leopard.  8 minutes to reboot the computer (from when I select the reboot command until I'm back to a functional desktop) is simply absurd and unacceptable!

Hi,

 

I run into the exact same issue over the week-end, when I wanted to freshen up my USB install sticks for "Old" OS X version.

However, I would disagree on the fact that this is a major bug, since El Capitan and beyond are already 2.5 generations behind,..

 

Anyways, I can confirm there is a regression that has been introduced in 2902.

I have re-tried with 2889 (which I still had on my hard drive), and this solved the black screen issue.

 

2902 contains several required features for get proper High Sierra support.

We should most probably investigate what went wrong analyzing the diff.

Thank you so much for your response and a definitive answer on a version that doesn't black the screens!  I had discovered that 2902 was not going to do what I hoped...

Fair enough...  (about it being a major bug)   It just feels like a major bug because of the inconvenience it has incurred!  

 

That is very good to know; unfortunately I have not been able to find that version available for download  :(   I was attempting to compile various revisions from sources to test but I've been getting an error.  At least now I do not need to go through the "testing" procedure!  Someone in another thread was kind enough to post a link to an older version like 27xx, so if I am unable to resolve the compile errors I can use that!  I very much appreciate all you have shared; it is very insightful!

Thank you!!!  I will definitely go through that list again!  I did some research previously and I believe that is one of the threads I found while I was attempting to resolve the issues; but I could be mistaken of course, and I could have missed something—or something may have been added or changed.  More likely that I missed something or didn't apply it correctly!   I very much appreciate your response and I will absolutely investigate and re-attempt to get clover working at a reasonable speed because it certainly has some very useful and helpful features!

Perhaps an additional download link of Enoch should be included in this thread for version 2889 specifying it for use on 10.11 and lower (in order to boot with verbose messages)?   That seems reasonable, and I think anyone trying to install the older versions of OS X (for whatever reason) would find that extremely helpful.
