I am new, I hope I am posting in the correct forum.
My specs: Processor: Core i5 6500 Skylake 3.2ghz
Mobo: Gigabyte h170-d3h
M2SSD: WD Black 256gb PCIe (Mac OSx)
SSD: Samsung 860 Evo (WIndows 10)
HDD: WD Blue 1TB
GPU: Radeon RX 480
Monitor: BenQ RL2460 24"
I was able to install High Sierra on a new m2 drive, that I added to the above configuration with windows 10 already installed.
I had a few issues during install, including the monitor turning off at boot screen.
Unfortunately, this persists even now. It turns off at about 60% of the progress bar, and to turn it on again I have to unplug/plug back my hdmi.
Additionally, while all of the usb ports worked during install and while running it out of the clover I had on the usb stick, only the rear ones appear to work now.
The audio doesn't work either, though I added the correct patch according to my mobo
Lastly, my other drives are not recognized in the bios anymore. They run fine from boot override but they don't show up in the boot priority (while multiple entries of mac OS do, and they seem to increase in number at every reboot)
I've got the intel 600p M.2 1024gb ssd and installed it as a second drive. High sierra 10.13.3 become very slow and even unresponsive when I copy a large amout of data to it - the more data copied, the slower it is and I see the kernel task consuming cpu, but not too much - about 70-80%. After 100-200 gb the whole system hangs and I see nothing in the logs (probably I just don't realize what shall I look for). It has 512 bytes sector size and, as Intel said, it cannot be changed. Not sure it is the source of the problem, but anyway - is it possible to use it with high sierra 10.13.3 at all?
Hi guys, i'm trying to help a friend of mine trying to install osx(possibly high sierra) on his pc with the following specs:
Asrock 990fx extreme 3
8gb of fury Kingston ddr3 ram(2x4)
Radeon hd 7950
128gb ssd( crucial m550)
A couple of hdds I don't remember the brand(maybe a seagate barracuda and a dumb old disk for data)
We tried to install it using the regular clover+high showers installer but we couldn't get it to reach the installer, then we tried osx-amd(don't know if i can talk about it there, sorry if i can't) and we still couldn't get to the installer.
Is there a guide i can use to install osx in that machin, i tried to search in the forum but i couldn't find it.
I am try to install High Sierra, as per ##### I have have successfully booted from the install usb drive and have booted into "Install macOS High Sierra". I had to add a boot flag (-no_compat_check) to the clover bootloader in order for the usb stick to boot properly. Also, at first I couldn't see the SSD drive in disk utility, but I fixed that by asking disk utility to show all drives.
Onto the current problem. I am having major issues trying to install High Sierra to a NVMe SSD. When I run "Install macOS High "Sierra" I get the following error:
"The version of macOS installed on this mac is newer than the version you are trying to install. When a new update is available, you can install it from the Updates plane in the Mac App Store. If you want to reinstall macOS, please use macOS recovery."
Also, It doesn't matter if the startup volume is formatted as APFS or HFS+.
If I format the drive using GPARTED on linux, the installer just says the startup volume doesn't have journaling enable. If I then run disk utility and enable journaling on the startup volume, then go back to the installer, I get the aforementioned error msg.
I have the following specs:
i9-7900. Asus Prime X299 Deluxe. ADATA 512GB NVMe SSD.
