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.

Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide:
OSX Latitude.com Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac Forum member Jake Lo from OSXLatitude.com for helping me out with installing. Morpheousman and Polyzargon from InsanelyMac who helping me with my other topics. (Dell 780) MacPeet, Chris1111 and all other forum members who helping out the community. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, 9 to 5 Mac and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial. And Hervé from insanelymac for using is modified DSDT.aml for E6320
Here are the requirements:
A Dell Latitude E6320 – This is necessary to install macOS Sierra for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.12 to – For me, I used a 500GB HDD to install 10.12 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor. E6320_V2.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. 3. My Specs

Download OS X Sierra
Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. Once macOS Sierra is downloaded, close the install pop-up that appears using Command (⌘)+Q. The application INSTALL macOS Sierra will appear in /Applications Done! 5. Prepare bootable USB Installer
Note on flash drives: You will need a USB flash drive to make this work. Your USB should be at least 8GB and a USB 3.0 drive is preferred. Kingston sells an 8GB USB 3.0 drive for less than 10 euro.
Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Make sure that the disk you choose to use doesn't contain anything that you want to keep, because the following tutorial will purge everything on the drive.
Open Finder - Applications and right-click on Install macOS Sierra and select Show Package Contents. Open Contents - Resources. Open a Terminal window thru Applications - Utilities - Terminal. In the Terminal window type sudo followed by a space. Drag the createinstallmedia file from the finder window opened in Step 4 to the Terminal Window. Type --volume followed by a space. Connect your USB drive and drag the USB drive into the Terminal Window. Type --applicationpath in the Terminal followed by a space. Open Finder - Applications and drag the Install macOS Sierra into the Terminal Window. Press Return on the keyboard to submit the full command. Type a 'Y' to continue when prompted to do so, and press Return on your keyboard The install process will begin by erasing the contents of your USB disk and copying the installer files to the USB disk. The entire process is quite lengthy; it can takes around 15-30 minutes, so you will need to show some patience 6. Installing Clover to the USB Disk

The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK. The software is straight forward and installs without problems.
Go to your E6320 folder which you have extracted to your HDD of your macOS Sierra. Open the map "beta driver for mac os X 10.11" . Run Installer_RTL.pkg Click Continue - Continue - Continue - Agree - Install Enter your Password and click Install Software - Continue Installation Click Restart to Reboot your Laptop. The first time you will get a kernel panic don't worry reboot again and the laptop will start macOS Sierra. Done! 18. What's working?
Just about everything.
You’ve successfully installed macOS Sierra onto your Dell Latitude E6320.
20. iMessage & FaceTime Fix
You will need MLB and Rom numbers from a legit Mac device that is on the mac server.
Run iMessage debug on a iMac, Macbook, etc and make a copy and paste of the Terminal output.
Open Clover Configurator. Mount EFI Partition. Import config.plist from EFI/EFI/Clover (File , import configuration, browse to config.plist and select). In Clover Configurator Click on RT Variables, Enter Rom and MLB Values from iMessage output from valid iMac device. Save changes to config.plist. Reboot, Sign into iMessage. iMessage and FaceTime should now both be working.
21. BOOT 0 Error
If you are using a 4k HDD you can get boot:0 error, to solve this issue do the following.
Reboot system back into Sierra installer (USB)FLASH DRIVE). Run Disk Utility find the Disk Identifier (eg. disk0s2). Unmount the drive you installed Sierra on. Launch Terminal and execute the following command: dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2. Exit Terminal. Boot Normally. Run macOS Sierra 10.12 E6320.pdf

I saw a thread about getting Tiger on VirtualBox and was interested in it, so i downloaded the ISO and set it up in VirtualBox.
The only problem is, it won't install. It boots the installer, but then it won't get any further than that. It either a) goes to the Apple logo with a cancel sign over it, or in verbose mode, it will stay on "still waiting for root device".
Any ideas on how to fix this?
