With the kind of drives which give this error I don't think you can avoid doing the steps in the guide to manually copy the boot1h file.

Although the newest version of chameleon may be able to these days, I can't recall correctly...

Try this: put the folder 386 in Desktop, open app Terminal and



Look for your boot partition's identifier (diskXsY):EX: disk0s2

diskutil list


Get root access:

sudo su


cd /Users/your user/Desktop/i386


Install boot0 to the MBR:


./fdisk440 -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdiskX


Install boot1h to the bootsector of the boot partition:


dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsY


Copy the file "boot" to the partition:


cp boot /


Set the partition active:


./fdisk440 -e /dev/rdiskX


p <-----> (print a list on screen)

f 2 <-----> (makes partition 2 active) see your Partition

w <-----> (write to disk)

y <-----> (yes)

    • It seems nice that chris1111 provided a patch, but I can't -- in good conscience -- download a random binary file from github and run it on my system.    What is so proprietary about his patch that he can't include source? I think I'll wait until the updated driver comes out before I update...  Does anyone know where to look for updates to the webdriver from Nvidia? I've ever found a page that lists them, just links to the actual files to download, and that root is not 'browsable'. I'd like to monitor that site to see when a version is updated for the 17E202 build. Once that is released, I can update OSX and should be fine.  
    • hey MaLd0n  It's been a while since I used clover, so a lot of things went rusty. Can you please look at my setup and guide/help what should be done next?  https://fex.net/354949878474?fileId=441517695   Current setup:  GA-Z97X-UD3H Xeon e3 1245v3  Msi GTX 1050ti Gaming X
    • Hi @fabiosun and thank's for your patience with an old and stubborn man.   I am 100 % sure that my MSR 0xE2 register is unlocked thank's to you.   My system is 100% stable and I haven't had one kp with this configuration in the last two weeks.    I'm now running without TSCAdjustReseat.kext and I can't se any issues in performance with or without that kext. What I however can se is that the amount of total energy consumed during the test-cycle are 10 times higher without the kext (three times Cinebench CPU and two times Luxmark open CL) as you can see in the output from my AppleIntelInfo.kext attached in my earlier post.   I have tested running Cinebench five times in a row with or without TSC kext and have exactly the same performance (see attached files). Temperature is not a problem at all.   Everything seems to be fine so I guess I have to wait and see if upcoming 10.13.5 maybe recognise Intel Xeon w series processor as native.     
    • Tried with HPET enabled and disabled so I don't think it's that. I'd tried with bus ratio before to no effect but wouldn't hurt to try again. The clock runs at the correct speed.
    • could be an HPET / TSC Sync issue. does your system clock slow down or run faster then it should. also check cpu and buss ratios.
