Hi all, I'm looking to get this working with my np540u3c ultrabook. I would love to be able to boot into osx without the need of Clover.

 

I hope someone can help. Thanks

Oz isn't intended for use with Notebooks, due its nature. If you don't have any dual BIOS/BIOS crash protection, it will brick your notebook if something goes wrong and then it needs reflash and a lot of headache in the process. You don't want that to happen.

I don't mind. I have a spare one. Would love to test it.

Then I'd recommend to load everything with shell first using bcfg. You can put the shell on an USB thumb drive. If it works you can try to flash a custom BIOS afterwards. But let me just tell you that I don't think that your chances of success are that high though you can't loose anything using bcfg add... Before bricking your ultrabook, you might just send it to me :P;) Good Luck :D

It's better to post your entire bios file so we can look directly at it.

Thanks for this, but my hack is recognized by apple as a real iMac and I don't like to share my smbios data.

Also I came to the conclusion that my problem has nothing to do with my ozmosis integration:

 

I add  APFS via bcfg like a driver and all work fine. always saw apfs partition and in Sierra and on boot menu.

 

I disconnect all disk's except my testing ssd and installed 10.13 in apfs mode.

I can boot this drive with a clover usbstick and verified the installation was successful.

I put a uefi-shell to efi\boot\bootx64.efi and the driver to efi\apfs.efi

I boot to the shell and load the driver.

Inside the bios 'apfs' is shown as a driver and from the shell I can see it is loaded  - so far so good.

But the boot-menu (via F12) doesn't show me any macOS entry.

 

Than I reconnect my macOS 10.12 ssd and there I can select the 10.13 disk as a start volume.

But it is rebooting to 10.12.

A few people tried and 90% of them failed, look it up. Ozmosis has no official support for mobile platforms. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/291655-ozmosis/page-122?do=findComment&comment=2082310

That is because most mobile devices are using InsydeH2O, which has no 'official' support, which though does not imply it will not work. It's not 'it will not work', it's 'you will get no help'. Oz has been running on tablets. ;)

 

EDIT: Did not mean to encourage anyone to just slam Oz into their FD, on a mobile device with no recovery way. All I'm saying is that sb who has some skills could most likely make it work.

Thats certainly true. Putting SecureCore Tiano and InsydeH2O aside for a second, beeing able to properly integrate ozm into FD doesnt guarantee thats it's gonna work (completely). But as you said there's at least a chance. Though testing it out with shell should be the way to go if sb really wants to try it.

Ok guys spent this morning studying 12 pages of information and I think I know what to do and am ready to flash away, but have a few questions:

 

Right now my working oz defaults is for a 14,2 Imac. As I understand the FF + FFM are different for each different kind of imac? Doesn't matter if entered as dec vs hex? 

 

My settings:

 

<key>BiosDate</key>
<string>05/01/2017</string>
<key>BiosVersion</key>
<string>IM142.88Z.0118.B46.1705011513</string>
<key>FirmwareFeatures</key>
<integer>938805225</integer>
<key>FirmwareFeaturesMask</key>
<integer>1073684479</integer>
 
Does that look correct?
 
Why must bios the bios date be for may 2017? Will my old 2015 Macbook pro be compatible for High Sierra considering it has an old bios?
 
Also how do I get the HS installer if I'm not a developer? Understand the two usb installation methods but gather Clover no longer needed for the oz2a update?
 
Also whats best install AFPS into bios or manually?
 
Also the new Oz2a.ffs file makes FF  + FFM, and FakeSMC update irrelevant?
 
And concerning the enhanced EDK2 Fat vs Hermit crabs. Whats best? Difference?
 
Thanks.

      I built this hack years ago now. Started with Lion, now on El Cap. I want to update now to High Sierra.

      I think I messed up my Clover when I downloaded the update .pkg and just installed it without taking my time or customizing the install. Was on Clover r3423, now I think I'm on r5104

      I've been searching and reading this site and others for a few days before making this thread, but I need help compiling what I've learned to get my system running correctly again and ready to update to High Sierra. Then, eventually, I want to update my graphics card, switch to UEFI (if necessary) and update to Mojave.

      I couldn't get system to boot. Could get to Clover and all the options, except the Shell... I hit enter on the Shell and I get black screen and nothing.

      The only way I got it to boot was to add -v to boot args, and change smbios from 14,2 to 13,2. Not sure why that worked still. Also I'm running two monitors, but I can only now run one of them off the Intel 3000 Graphics and the second one off my GFX Card.

      So now I'm afraid to shut down or reboot.... I could really use some help with Clover.

      I'm pretty sure my config file in Clover is not right. Also, some of the files in my Clover backups are not in the new Clover install. (2.5k 5104)

      If someone could please take a look at the files I've attached and help me sort this out, I would be grateful. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

      I've attached
      - The last boot log
      - The current Clover folder from the EFI partition after performing Clover update. (.zip)
      - The Clover backup that was working before Clover update (.zip)
      - Library/Extensions Folder (screen shot)
      - System/Library/Extensions Folder (.zip)

      Can I propose a new subforum be created for the new OpenCorePkg OpenCore front end being created by vit9696 and others, it is a fantastic piece of work:
      https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg
      Even at version 0.1 it runs my Mojave 10.14.4 setup very nearly flawlessly. It consists of a 10KB bootstrap BootX64.efi and a 200KB OpenCore.efi OS loader. All configuration is done using a very well documented config.plist
