This is an old security update. It released on Mar 29, 2018.

 

As I said there is no any security update for Sierra at Apr 24, 2018, you can see the all update list in this link;

One more thing Slice...

You have moved FixHeaders from ACPI>DSDT>Fixes to ACPI>DSDT, but Clover GUI thinks that it is still in ACP>DSDT>Fixes. This results to not being shown as enabled in GUI

Thanks for the note, I will check and correct.

FakeSMC failing to load?

 

 

 

The installer path to boot.efi on the "Boot OS X" partition for Fusion Drives changed from /System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi (in El Capitan) to /com.apple.boot.R/boot.efi (in Sierra & High Sierra)...

i tested root/i386/booter. i mistook it and not consider specific folder name.

i see. booter files is located in user's specific folder name "Netinstall de Installer macOS High Sierra.nbi" like you mentioned.

it's hard. it's not strict.

if user use folder name only "Netinstall de Installer macOS High Sierra.nbi", Clover can detect it. but if there are cases like this

"macOS High Sierra.nbi", "Netinstall Installer macOS High Sierra.nbi". etc, can't detect. 

also your lang not english. there are so many cases. can't consider only your lang.

 

hmm..

I can not find the exact information,  Sorry

what I know is that on old Mac 10.6 and 10.7,   and maybe even more  as I've seen, you need OS X Server.app to create the disk image because the old system does not get System Image Utility.app like in High Sierra

 

System /Library /CoreSerices/Applications/  System Image Utility.app

      Hi there, time for my first guide after asking so many things
       
      Updated for newer Clover versions and with additional instructions for more apps: gdisk and RU.
       
      So what may be overlooked sometimes in the whole boot loader discussion is the ability of UEFI to do more than just loading an OS. This is why I see ".efi" files as "apps" because in fact they just are, built on a special kind of API: UEFI. So, you can actually do stuff like editing, diagnosing, testing certain stuff at the lowest possible system level without booting to any OS.
       
      DISCLAIMER: Use this guide at your own risk! For educational purposes only! Should do not any harm, but remember you are dealing with rather low level stuff. But at least for me everything went flawless.
       
      Prerequisites:
      Working clover installation Clover Configurator or some app to edit the config.plist  
      1) Memtest
       
      This is how to install the UEFI version of Memtest with Clover:
      Download memtest, I used this link: Image for creating boot-able USB Drive Open the archive by double clicking on it. Mount the file memtest86-usb.img within by double clicking again. Now, you should see a folder named EFI in this volume, containing a folder BOOT. Open it. The files containing it are the actual app, in 32 and 64 bit versions. Think in almost all cases we want to use the 64 bit version. Now, mount your EFI partition, using Clover configurator. Create a folder named MemTest86 in the EFI folder on your main drive. Copy all files in the EFI/BOOT folder from the mounted image to your newly created folder. That ends the basic setup! Now, we add the correct Menu entry to the clover boot menu, so that we can actually start this app.
       
      Get into clover configurator, open your standard config.plist from your boot drive and go to the GUI section. Under "Custom Entries", add an entry like this:
       

       
      Please note while the path you enter is not case sensitive, you must make sure you use the backslash "\" for entering paths, and not a slash. So basically what we do is tell clover where it can find the app, give it a name, and tell clover it is a "Windows" app. Note: with older Clover versions we had to set this to "Linux", but for now "Windows" is the setting that works.
       
      If you prefer to do a manual config, add this entry to your config.plist, under GUI/Custom/Entries:
      <dict> <key>CustomLogo</key> <true/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>MemTest86</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Ignore</key> <false/> <key>Image</key> <string>\EFI\CLOVER\themes\Icons\os_mint.png</string> <key>Path</key> <string>\EFI\MemTest86\BOOTX64.efi</string> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> Now, save and reboot and you should see the newly created entry. Note that I also used a custom Icon - this is optional - in case you don't you will just see a generic windows icon instead:
       

       
      And this is how it looks like:
       

       

       
      PS: also noticeably faster and you get also more features with this version than with the older version, for example it does now write a log file. For more Information, see: http://www.passmark.com/forum/showthread.php?4315-Memtest86-Version-5-Beta-%28Pure-UEFI%29
       
       
      2) gdisk
       
      Another app you can use is the UEFI version of gdisk (aka GPT fdisk), which you can use to edit and change your partitions.
       
      Warning! Install and use this app at your own risk! If you do something wrong here you might nuke your drive(s), so only use that if you know what you are doing.
       
      This is how to do it (even easier):
      Download here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gptfdisk/files/gptfdisk/1.0.1/gdisk-binaries/gdisk-efi-1.0.1.zip/download Mount your EFI partition Unzip the file and copy the resulting folder to your EFI Folder, so your path goes like this "/Volumes/EFI/EFI/gdisk-efi" Get into clover configurator, open your standard config.plist from your boot drive and go to the GUI section. Add an entry like this:  
      If you prefer to do a manual config, add this entry to your config.plist, under GUI/Custom/Entries:
      <dict> <key>CustomLogo</key> <false/> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>FullTitle</key> <string>GDisk</string> <key>Hidden</key> <false/> <key>Ignore</key> <false/> <key>Image</key> <string></string> <key>Path</key> <string>\EFI\gdisk-efi\gdisk_x64.efi</string> <key>Type</key> <string>Windows</string> <key>VolumeType</key> <string>Internal</string> </dict> When everything went OK you should see this after selecting the respective entry in Clover:
       

       
       
      3) RU
       
      I recently found one more app that might be interesting to some, and thats "Read Universal" or in short "RU". This is a tool that enables you to debug your BIOS and read (and modify!) every imaginable data, including UEFI variables, ACPI Tables etc.
       
      Warning, again! I think blindly messing around with this app is even more dangerous, but on the other hand it gives you access to a lot of potentially interesting stuff.
      Download here: http://ruexe.blogspot.de/ The next steps are basically the same as above so make a folder in your EFI partition, copy the .EFI files and make another custom entry in your config.plist Here are some screens:
       

       

       

       
       
      So this is what you also can do with UEFI and clover. I am curious which other useful applications might exist!
       
      Anybody who knows, maybe post it here?

      RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V F4-3200C16D-32GVK (3200MHz, 4x 16GB DIMMs, so Total 64GB) in quad-channel configuration.
      CPU: i7 6800k @4.0Ghz
      GPUs: GTX 1080 Ti and GTX 1060 3GB
      (each one a monitor, because I can't get DVI to run parallel with DP on the 1080Ti, and my second monitor only has DVI/VGA)
      OS: High Sierra 10.13.2 (17C88) / Clover revision: 4392
       
      Hello everybody,
      I occasionally have system crashes and suspect that it is related to RAM. However, this RAM is completely new, and a run with MemTest86+ from the USB stick showed no errors. However, if I use Memtest on MacOS, I get a bunch of error messages, but sometimes none (I restart the computer between tests).  
      As I just discovered, my RAM is not on the recommended vendor list of my motherboard, nor is it on the manufacturer side of the RAM. I have read several times that the RAM may not have been tested by the manufacturer on this platform. Not a single X99 motherboard is listed for this RAM.
      So I also suspect that my RAM is not compatible.
      But if that were the case, how could it sometimes work completely error-free?
       
      During RAM tests in summer 2017 (a slightly different setup, 4x8GB but still G.Skill Ripjaws V) I had no errors at Memtest under MacOS, if I remember correctly. At that time it ran under Sierra 10.12.6. AptioMemoryFix.efi could also cause problems.
      I am appreciative for any help!
       
      Here is an excerpt from a faulty test.
      It is noticeable that it is always the same address during the test, but a different one after each test.
