Thanks for the suggestion Mahesh, unfortunately, the Broadcom lead I mentioned previously, was this exact same card. The price is just too high. I've only seen it listed on eBay and the lowest I could find was $100. That is just too expensive for a card. Unless of course you know of another place that sells it for cheap. Thanks again though.

Hi,

 

I was following your guide of post 20, but I am stuck at Install and properly setup Chameleon: Number 4

The folders don't exist???

Can you upload it again?

 

Thank you!

Agreed. The price is totally outrageous IMO. When I get some time, i'm gonna try to look more into an older card. I assume the price will be much lower if I just settle for a card using BT 3 instead of BT 4. We'll see though I guess. I can't believe how much of a pain this is turning out to be. :(

Wow! People are actually using that guide?! Sorry, I very quickly wrote it for someone else and I'm not even sure that they ever used it. I figured no one would to be honest. I hate to tell you this but it's EXTREMELY outdated now. Technically, the majority of the guide is still fine, it's just the parts that rely on my kexts, my progress, etc. that are outdated. I'm not even using Chameleon anymore. Soooooooo...yeah. >_>

 

That said, if you still want to continue, I've updated the zip archive and you should re-download it. It has [uPDATED] next to it so you can tell which one you need to get. I added the org.chameleon.Boot.plist back into it since i'm pretty sure it's what you were missing before. Otherwise, it's exactly the same, just has a few folders now. Sorry, but obviously that "guide" just doesn't get updated and it probably never will.

Hello Gygabyte,

 

I do not mean to rush you, but I just found your thread and have an Envy 17-j092nr.  Might you please update your guide based on the Clover bootloader you currently run?  I will be happy to share my findings if it will help.  Thank you so much!  Sorry I could not help earlier.

 

Best Regards,

Hi jpsys,

Sorry, but as mentioned in my previous post, the guide I wrote isn't being actively updated. Mainly, due to the fact that several, better guides exist both here on IM and scattered across the web. Secondly, there really isn't a surefire, universal method for every machine type. That said, the process is pretty similar. The only differences are my kernel. For whatever reason, I can't use the stock vanilla kernel for 10.8.5 with either Chameleon or for Clover. My kernel is the custom 10.8.4 kernel with Haswell support added. Google is your friend. Other than that, using any standard Clover guide should suffice. Just make sure if you install Clover with UEFI, you select and install OsxAptioFixDrv too. Otherwise it will probably hang. I'll try to update the main page with install files and info soon. Files are live now! Good luck. :-)

Hello Gygabyte,

 

Got it, thanks.  I have been trying to get to the install screen via the Clover bootloader, but I seem to always get the reboot problem as soon as the kernel starts, and I am stuck on that step.  I have checked the OSXAptioFixDrv option using the Clover Installer application when preparing the USB stick.  I am attempting a few other options-- if you have any pearls of wisdom, I thank you in advance.

 

Best Regards,

Just to be sure, try using an earlier version of Clover, such as rev. 2165.  I can't get the new versions to go past the point where you have problems too.

What mnfesq said. I discovered I have to stay on or below r2133 otherwise my audio breaks. So be wary of the versions you play with.

 

Other than that, it depends really on your system and hardware. You have a different model than mine so things will likely be different for both of us. If you haven't yet, make and fix your dsdt. After that, just play around with the options. You're especially gonna want to enable the kernel patch for the CPU and very likely the lapic patch too. If you're trying to install a retail 10.8.5 install, you should look into a replacement kernel. I still can't load the vanilla stock 10.8.5 kernel and I'm assuming you probably can't either. Google search for a 10.8.4 kernel patched for Has well (assuming you have a Haswell).

 

I couldn't get around to it today but I was planning to release my files today since my progress has halted for now but I never got around to it. Maybe tomorrow if I can get some free time. They might help you. So keep an eye out.

 

Good luck. ^_^

UPDATE

 

Following Gygabyte's earlier guide, I was able to get to the install screen using installer files from 10.8.2 and Chameleon.  Does Clover have the same KernelPatcher.dylib file that Chameleon does in order to get past the reboot loop?

 

Thanks mnfesq for your insight, I will update you on my progress.  Thanks Gygabyte!

 

Best Regards,

Thanks mnfesq!  I have 10.8.2 installed and was able to boot into it using -v -x after a kernel panic without safeboot.  Do you think the Lapic Kernel Patcher above will work for Clover on 10.8.2, since Gygabyte seemed to have no luck with installs later than 10.8.4?

 

Thanks again!

Good work everyone, and thank you for sharing all your notes.

 

I'm also trying to setup ML 10.8.5 on my new HP Envy 17t-j000 Quad. After applying the Haswell Patch and restoring some of the kext from the 10.8.4, I have made some progress in the initial boot. But it's getting stuck at:

 

DSMOS has arrived

 

From looking at the other threads, it looks like an issue with display driver. I only have Intel HD 4600 Mobile (no discrete GPU). Since, some of you are able to do the 10.8.5 installation on similar variants, so I'm hoping this laptop can support OS-X too. However, no matter what boot parameters I give, I get this same stuck issue. I also tried removing the IntelHD files form extensions as suggested by some posts.

 

Any ideas or help?

The patcher was stated to change the way the kernel is patched to apply to changes made to the kernel in 10.9.  You should be able to use Clover/Chameleon for the LAPIC patch.  

 

In the meantime, I posted my problem with the newest versions of Clover on the Clover discussion post and got the response that I should disable kernel patch.  I did so and the newest version of Clover worked just fine.  However, there is a difference in Clover between the kernel patch and the LAPIC patch.  If you use Clover Configurator, like I do, just be sure that the kernel cpu box is unchecked.  You can keep the kernel lapic box checked for 10.8.x installations and it will still work fine.

Wow! You guys have been busy chatting it up since I last checked in huh?

 

Anyway, I uploaded my current setup files for 10.8.5. Now everyone has access to what i've been using. Hopefully, someone will find some use in them. :)

Are you rebuilding your kextcache correctly? If you are using Chameleon, move all of your /Extra/Extensions into S/L/E first and then use these commands before you reboot to rebuild your kextcache, press enter after each line:

sudo -s
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions
kextcache -v 1 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions
kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
kextcache -system-caches

Afterwards, reboot as normal and you will be able to boot using the updated kextcache. Provided, you don't have any outstanding issues left to resolve.

 

Be wary of what you are replacing with 10.8.4 files too. I only needed to replace ACPIPlatform & the stock kernel to get mine to boot. Downgrading too many kexts and/or removing too many of them will often result in boot issues. With the exception of the GeForce, our machines are probably not that different. You should take a look at my newly uploaded setup files on the first post. They will likely be useful to you. ;p

For what it's worth, the LAPIC patch in Clover does not work with 10.9 Mavericks.  I found a patcher that worked great for me.  Here it is:

 

attachicon.gifLapic Kernel Patcher.zip

 

Hey mnfesq. Why did you remove the README.txt file from my Lapic Kernel Patcher?

 

Also I contacted gsly a couple of months ago about the changes in Mavericks LAPIC code, but he never submitted an update to clover for it. If he's not going to, then I guess I can whenever I get some free time.

Hey, you're the guy that made the lapic patcher.  Many thanks!  I hate to say it but the only reason I didn't include the readme file is that when you make an archive of two or more files, it's just called archive.zip and I would have to rename it.  Just compressing the patcher kept it's original name.  No disrespect intended towards you, just some laziness on my part.  Here's the readme.txt file that goes with donovan6000's lapic patcher:

Since we somehow managed to trick you in here, maybe you could answer a question of two donovan6000...

 

I've been reading through your blog concerning ACPI controlled keys: http://donovan6000.blogspot.com/2013/08/acpi-controlled-keys.html

Good, interesting read by the way. I'm trying to fix my brightness but I can't ever seem to get anything to work with it. I've tried out GenericBrightness.kext too but no luck there either. Here's the interesting part. I recently discovered that if I run off the battery, my screen will slightly dim, like it should. It's by such a small amount however, that I had to reconnect my adapter several times to check it make sure I wasn't crazy. So, something good must be going on there...

 

Anyway, any tips for getting this figured out? You made it work with your HP lappy, so maybe you have some tips for us? Your blog about this is very interesting but sadly, with all the examples you provide, my dsdt is VASTLY different than yours and my keys aren't so easily labeled either. So, trying to figure that out has been quite the chore. Links to my dsdts are available on the first post of this thread.

 

Ultimately, How do you test if the system uses ACPI keys? This isn't a field i'm very familiar with sadly. I just need my brightness to work. I can only assume mine does use it purely on the fact that it's a new model but that is purely a guess and nothing more. Please, share some wisdom if you can. It will be greatly appreciated.  :)

 

P.S. -- I tried to comment on that page on your blog but I don't know if it went through or not. Seemed like it had a technical heart attack or something.

gygabyte666,

 

I can't thank you enough for your instructions and setup files. Guess what, I'm able to Install Mountain Lion with nearly all the features/functions (Display, Keyboard, Trackpad,  etc) as you have listed on your first page. It's more than enough to do the basics work. Thanks again, and if there is any further development on any of the items, please keep posting updates here. There are many following you.

 

One question though. Do you think it's safe to install Clover boot loader on installed partition? I'm currently booting OS-X from the USB Disk. I'm little concerned about installing this on disk as if something goes wrong, it may mess up my Windows and HP Recovery partition.

 

Best Regards, Akbar

Glad you got it working. I greatly appreciate the encouraging words and appreciation. If you yourself come across any fixes or enhancements, please try to remember to give back. That's all I ask. :)

 

Yes! Concerning your second question. Absolutely install it to the internal HDD if you're all setup and comfortable. It has been working fantastic for me, I assume it'll do the same for you.

@gygabyte666 Are you that guy I was talking to on bios-mod.com about the APIC settings? Your name looks very familar.

 

So here's the whole story. For my laptop, after I got QE/Cl working, I patched my DSDT with PNLF SB patch:

Device (PNLF)
{
	Name (_HID, EisaId ("APP0002"))
	Name (_CID, "backlight")
	Name (_UID, 0x0A)
	Name (_STA, 0x0B)
}

Which would make the slider under the Display pane in System Prefrences to change the brightness of the backlight. Unfortunatley the brightness keys on the keyboard didn't work. So I was using the debug version rehabman's voodooPS2 kext to see which scancodes were related to each of my keys. I noticed that my fn+F2, fn+F3, and fn+F4 keys didn't produce any scan code, so I couldn't even map them with voodooPS2.

 

This ment that they were controlled by the ACPI. So I eventually found Dolnor's IOWMIFaimly.kext, which is supposed to allow the keys to be mapped to their repective functions. Of course it didn't work right away, and I gave up after a few days of trying it and just accepted that my brightness keys would never work -_-

 

Then one day, I saw someone had released a kext for ASUS laptops with ACPI keys. I looked at the DSDT that they uploaded and compared it to the orignal from the stock bios for their laptop to see if they had changed anything. Lol I had a lot of free time earlier this year to do stuff like that. Quickly saw how they had the keys send the specified hex values to the ACPI to trigger that key's unique brightness event.

 

I assumed my DSDT wasn't doing this, and that's why IOWMIFamily wasn't working. Spent a few hours looking through my DSDT to see how this I could implement it. Eventually I got it working. Last thing I needed for a 100%  working hackintosh :thumbsup_anim:

 

I know this is a hard thing to get working, especially because there is no other tutorial expect mine that go into it.

To control brightness with keyboard strokes, I use an app called KeyRemap4MacBook.  I just set the brightness to decrease by pressing F1 and to increase by pressing F2.

HAHA! I knew I knew you from somewhere else, lol. I just couldn't put my finger on where until now. As I recall, you also pointed me to your Lapic Kernel Patcher back then too. :)

 

Anyway, thank you for the in depth insight into your method. Clearly, I have something else wrong in my DSDT because although I have the brightness slider displayed, it is purely cosmetic and doesn't actually work for me. So, something else must be wrong. I'll have to look into that later. I apologize for the late reply but I got extremely sick recently and I barely had the energy to turn on my computer, much less actually get anything done on it. >_<

 

To control brightness with keyboard strokes, I use an app called KeyRemap4MacBook.  I just set the brightness to decrease by pressing F1 and to increase by pressing F2.  

Thanks for the info. As mentioned above, my setup must have issues since my brightness slider doesn't work at all. I'll have a look into this when i'm feeling better. :(

      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ .app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader

      Download the RehabMan's CloverEFI fork (used 4701) and install with this options on "Install macOS Mojave":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - ApfsDriverLoader-64
      - UEFI Drivers - AptioMemoryFix64


       
       
      Make things works

      Will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop.
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
                    If you have modded BIOS with Advanced Menu and enabled 128MB DRAM-prealloc use 128MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
                    If no, then use 32MB_DRAM-prealloc_config.plist.zip
      - Put SSDT-L440.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.3.2.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the FakeSMC.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0915.
      - Download the VoodooPS2Controller.kext from here. I used version 2018-1008.
      - Download the IntelMausiEthernet.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1031.

      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (In addition to removing the whitelist, add the advanced menu);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      Soon, I'll provide step by step in this process. Probably until end of this week.
      In the meantime, if you need to, send me your dump that I do steps 3 and 4 for you.
      I also add the Advanced Menu so you can increase to 128MB the DRAM-prealloc.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.9.
      - Download the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext from here. I used the version 2018-0505.
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.2.
       
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the config.plist inside your destination disk EFI parittion with config.plist inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.
       
      Last step
       
      Copy all Kexts from flash drive to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.3
       
      - Updated with success;
      - Everything works perfectly after reboot;
       

       
       

       
      And last but not least
       
      I would like to thank the following community members, by making these dream possible:

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  AptioMemory --> (consigliato) 
                               : Driver64UEFI  ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi
                               : Selezionate l'altri driver come da successiva immagine,

      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      Immagine 
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
