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.

1- Yes

 

2- Yes

 

3 - Bios and Bios date , yes

 

4 - Here ,  yes

 

5 - Not stable yet, but try and share experience

 

6 - Better to have the FF + FFM that you've posted, for fakesmc I prefer it to much my SMBIOS just to be 100% sure

 

7 - Didn't tried

Ammoune78,

 

Thank you so much for your reply. The fog has begun to lift.  I just do not understand line 6 where you said "for fakesmc I prefer it to much my smbios ...". Please clarify. Are saying you prefer to update to the latest version? Thanks again.

According to this iMac14,2 smc is: 2.15f2, in Info.plist of FakeSMC.kext keys: REV, RVBF and RVUF you should update them with this: 02150F00 0002, then in system profiler you will have SMC Version (system): 2.15f2.

 

You also have to change in Info.plist smc compatible: smc-napa with smc-huronriver

When you will install HS then you'll don't have Firmware problem error, even sometimes with oz2a.ffs

Mine's  SMC Version (system): 1.30f3 and no problems so far, clean install. 

Changed data and bios version in Defaults.plist.

cecek said, dump real Mac hardware, copy and paste not exact same data but you should do it on the way of that.  ^_^

Thanks I will look in that and update my FakeSMC. Also I noticed that the APFS.ffs file is missing its name identifier and in UEFITool its name is missing. So on my own I converted the efi file that was posted a couple pages page back to ffs with a proper name "APFS_Driver". However the file size is twice as big as the apfs.ffs driver posted prior at 378 kb for both the efi and ffs. Not only that the apfs.efi file thats hosted here in the downloads insanelymac section is 452 kb large.  Makes me wonder why are there such large discrepancies in file size??

 

Anyhow I have posted my apfs.ffs file with identifying name details in there if anyone wants it until Ammoune or Fritz or someone else does a better job with smaller file size.

 

Thanks

I've tried several times installing HS with APFS file system, but doesn't see it, I will now re-install clean one with APFS and will see if it will works! Good hack  :wink_anim:

Ammoune,

 

The latest FakeSMC Kext I could find was Rehabman's June 7th 2017 release. Will that one work with HS? Also I found the keys you mentioned and changed the values, and converted to an ffs but was reading theres another version called HuronRiver?? Is that one better and where do I get it?

 

Thanks

 

Edit: Reread this line you wrote and now it makes sense:

 

You also have to change in Info.plist smc compatible: smc-napa with smc-huronriver

 

Thanks

Yes in the same Info.plist just change smc-xxxx with smc-huronriver, it's just optimizing FakeSMC for the smc of the iMac you're playing!

Found it. Converted it. Waiting for my HS usb installer to finish up and away we go! Thanks.

 

Edit: Just wanted to report that the Oz2a and the updated FakeSMC 2.15f ver is backward compatible with the old Sierra install and was able to boot into the old 12.3 no problems. Verified 2.15f in the system profiler. Still haven't tried to install HS yet. Probably do so tomorrow after some rest. Thanks.

With these settings, you should be able to install it with no prob unless something missing, but I don't think so!

Unfortunately I found out the hard way that using apfs.ffs in the firmware prevents Oz menu from loading usb items. Removing apfs.ffs restored that ability.

 

Still can't get past the apple logo. Maybe I need Clover to assist?

 

Thanks

Maybe better using HFS+, install HS, when APFS fully supported then re-install it

 

Some usuals:

		<key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key>
		<integer>170262534</integer>
		<key>DisableIntelInjection</key>
		<false/>
		<key>boot-args</key>
		<string>-lilubeta -alcbeta</string>

And it's preferable to boot first in verbose to see what happened! Don't use Discret Graphic Card, the Info.plist of FakeSMC need to be edited by PlistEdit Pro or equivalent, Bios updated with UBU can cause same issue when booting, if using UBU just IRST and LAN no need VBIOS or CPUMicrocode to be updated!

 

Only Oz! Booting from Install HSierra USB is same as Sierra USB!

Hi.

First page

6.)Making needed kexts for ozmosis.

    We will use script called Kext2Ffs by FredWsta and STLVNUB

    Copy your kexts to kext folder,run script and u get .ffs for integrating into firmware.

    U can integrate uncompressed and compressed.

    If u wanna compress using MMTOOL u will save about 10% of space.

    Soo if u really need space then compress using mmtool other way just use already compressed by script.

 

Using MMTOOL u will get better compression ratio not only for kext but for all.

about 10% seems to be a lie for apfs.

Ammoune,

 

Thanks for the suggestions. Will try them out after work today. Let me explain what happened last night. Tried to boot the usb using Clover and got a kernel CPU panic crash. Didn't try to turn on verbose mode in Oz - should have and will do next try. Even tried to disable those MAT tables I read about in Clover and that got me as far as waiting for Firewire GUID error. So still confused if still need Clover or not anymore..

 

To Xpamamadeaus.. I know all about kext2ffs and compressed vs non-compressed files. Thing was the efi source file I used to convert into an ffs was large to begin with but MMTool probably could extract it as a compressed file I  believe. Problem was the APFS ffs driver conflicted with Oz's boot menu and selecting usb devices would do nothing until I got rid of APFS. Don't need it now anyhow,

 

Thanks

 

PS: Atleast my old Sierra installations are still functional. Got to be some bios setting I forgot to disable or something.

      Hi All
       
      I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation:
      - MSI B350 PC Mate
      - Ryzen 5 - 2600
      - Radeon Pro 580 GPU
      - 4 x 8GB DDR4
      (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) 
       
      Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes...
      ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2"
      Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX.
       
      So can someone help...

      I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen.
      In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1
      In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67
      In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well)
       
      But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help...
      Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...

      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.

      Just so you all know I actually have done something. I have pushed the source to both my github and to sourceforge, please commit to the experimental branch and I will merge it into the stable branch once it is safe. Also, nothing meaningful happens yet so don't get too excited. Only the Visual studio build works right now. I haven't set up the Xcode or Makefile builds yet, I'm trying to do them now.
