      I'm trying to install 10.13.3 for iMacPro on SATA SSD. The motherboard is ASUS WS X299 PRO.
      The installation process hangs when 'less than a minute left' is displayed on screen. The last messages I can see in the installation log are at the picture attached to this post.
      If I then reset the system and boot what was installed I can continue the installation. Unfortunately, it stucks at the end again. Next, if I try to boot what was finally installed I can even get to working system. But I cannot install the updates because of the same hanging at the end!
      This is not relevant to:
      APFS or HFS+ - both hang Locked or unlocked MSR 0xE2 - both cases hang Special build for iMacPro or ordinary build - installing both builds hang Flash drive prepared using 'createinstallmedia', BDU or using RecoveryHD - all hang USB drive failure or disconnected USB port. I rule that out by installing from recovery partition with all USB drives disconnected. It is not a SATA disk issue. Tried to install using another SSD drive. Hangs. Also tried to install on HDD - hangs. Changing to iMac18,3 did not help as well. Lastest dev beta (common) did not fix it - hangs. Please help me to figure out what's wrong.
      My config file is attached.
      Moving a bit further... The first stage of installation goes fine in Safe Mode (-x). Installation log indicates the same log message and after that it reboots immediately. Seems to be a normal behaviour. However, the second stage ("install macOS from <volume>") still hangs. Running the second stage in Safe Mode panics with "process 1 exec of /sbin/launchd failed".
      SOLVED. It turned out that "hardware" NVRAM doesn't work with AptioMemoryFix on this motherboard. But works in Safe Mode. This is weird but it's true. Fallback to OsxAptioFixDrv2 + EmuVariableUEFIDrv solved my problem. Installation now finished just fine.

      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.

      I have browsed thru all forums and all threads for this card but apparently my system is still something special. With some cumbersome effort (none of the simple one-click ##### and other USB-Installers methods ever worked for me) I managed to install Sierra 10.12.5. However when booting is nearly finsihed I get the famous black screen which can be recovered by quickly unplug/plug the DP monitor cable leading finally to a proper initialisation of my 290X. 

      1.) RadeoDeInit is on, without this patch the screens stays dark forever
      2.) Booting with iGFX never works for me, I always get memory allocation errors during boot until I disable the Intel graphics completely.
      3.) I am on Clover 4318, newer version do not make any differences.
      4.) I am using a System Configuration for an Imac 14,2. Most other configs do not make difference either.

      I have not started again the nightmare of Framebuffer patching (as I remember from Yosemite) and I think it will not help as the card is recognised by Sierra but just not initialised.
