Kynyo what do you mean by bios date time, the main bios of the board i'm using or the bios date of the Apples firmware emulated?

Bios board, not SMBIOS. Is also important to update SMBIOS data especially:

 

-Bios Version

-Bios Release Date

-Firmware Features

-Firmware Features Mask

If those 5 are updated you'll not receive OSXinstall mpkg error.

Ok, SMBios already updated to 08/08/2017, and i'll check now if the bios date is up to date!

It's done now, thanks Kynyo, after that Install High Sierra.app was downloaded from the AppStore, the command worked!

I told you! :D

An easy way to add High Sierra in bootmenu when you're running in APFS mode is by using Clover with AptioFixV2 and System preferences Startup selector.

Keep in mind that you have to integrate APFS.ffs into BIOS firmware.

Patch APFS.efi first to remove verbose messages with this script

 

 

Yep! easy way....

sudo perl -i -pe 's|\x00\x74\x07\xb8\xff\xff|\x00\x90\x90\xb8\xff\xff|sg' /path/to/your/APFS.efi
ErmaC

and then use Kext2FFS to convert .efi into .ffs. Integrate it with UEFITool and you're good to go.

Hi guys, I'm back :) 

I killed my Z87 and i5, so as temporary resolve (until 10 nm upgrade) I bought z97HD3 (2.0 guess) and Intel Xeon e3-1245 v3 (it went horrible cheap, and work as i7 4770) and currently trying to assemble Oz BIOS, but having a lack of apple/mac accessible devices, so can someone look inside this bios i found online and make a screen about what's in it, thank you:

Dumb question time: 

Past couple hours struggle eventually went to result of installing HS on apfs vol, but after I made first changes to Oz config decision been made, that I need to reset NVRAM. So i did, and Oz lost boot sector when i hit f12, i see only SSD name and nothing else, when i hit boot from SSD, the message about adding bootable device appears. 

I never had mobo with OZ that had space for GUI or anything else, so can someone help me how to bring back the boot record without installing HS again?

boot into a install usb drive open disk utility and repair permissions on ssd. drive. close disk utility. and then choose ssd as start up disk

Eventually I reinstalled the OS, because after nvram there is nothing, even recovery visiable. Dunno why no recovery after install with apfs, maybe I should try old good hfs+.

Oz cannot populate the Boot Entries for APFS Volumes, you have to set them in Shell

Hi!

 

Thank you, it helped me a lot. Now I'm able to install HS. Last thing is to modify my DSDT for correct audio and video settings.

 

Best!

Good day/night Oz.
Recently I’ve purchased gtx 1050 ti (msi gaming x) and run into a problem.
My current rig is z97hd3 (rev 2.0) intel Xeon 1245 v3 + gtx 1050 ti.
The problem is, that I can’t boot with Bios modes with oz. if I flash stock bios, it working okay, little bud slower than usual, but boots and works.
When I flash OZ modes bios - it freezes on boot screen, if I trying to login into bios - freezes.
If I press f12 on fresh boot - I can get the boot menu, but nothing boots.
If I go into flash utility (del)- I can reflash bios.
If I reset nvram- same freeze fire it implements.
I thought that this might be a psu, so I took 650w ( had 450). Nothing changed. Thought that faulty graphics card - other pc working with windows without a problem. I don’t have any intel pc to confirm more , but I guess that card is working.
If anybody encountered something similar , or know where to dig for fixing it - please help.
Thank you.

Firefly,
Could it be your cpu microcodes? Have they been updated? Roll them back.. or forward.

Well, I guess only with bios update or windows, because I’m definitely didn’t patched micro codes by myself.
Before I had rx460, it didn’t worked with Mac , but didn’t do any kind of shinanigens I have with gtx 1050 ti.
How can I check micro codes and roll them back ?
This is totally new situation, never had such response of any kind of hardware.

I know how to do it in Windows. You run HWinfo. I don't know about Mac OS and if they force microcodes but if your not able to even load the bootloader and never updated your microcodes before it may not be the reason. Would not hurt to update the Microcode within the bios rom and see if the situation improves. Also there are two ways your microcodes get updated. 1. Via the OS as a software patch. 2. From the bios itself. I would use Uefitool NE44 to load your rom and see what version it says you have and then find the intel advisory on Spectre/Meltdown and make sure your not using a bad microcode.

      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.
