HP Z400/Z600/Z800 Workstations OS X 10.10.x/10.11.x Installation

hi jaymack it would be very nice to explain how 2 about installation 

I had an existing install of High Sierra 17A291m. I had failed to install using the USB installer method. I could only get as far as being told it would not install on my computer. I then tried the pkg .method which worked. I was not able to continue with the pkg. method for future updates, as it did not work for me. After seeing Beta 5 in the App Store, I decided to clone my existing install, in case things went wrong, and run the Beta 5 update and see what happened. I also wanted to see APFS in action. First I installed the current version of Clover and then Beta 5. This time I did not get the will not install message, and everything went smoothly. I only had to install an older kext to get Wi F working. I used IMac 13.2 in spite of being told I should use Mac Pro 5.1. I am not using nullcpu.

Has anyone managed to bypass the firmware update when installing the High Sierra DP6 on Z800? If so please share...

I have managed to boot on my USB and format the SSD with new filesystem, but I'm stuck and can not pass the firmware update.

DP 6 Successfully install without any problem but i am still using the  HFS+ file system and i don,t have any  problem  with it

 

usb thumb drive Created from Torrent file macOS High Sierra 10.13

 

With this Command 

 

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia —volume /Volumes/Untitled —applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra\ Beta.app

 

 

and now for every fresh installation i am using the same USB thumb drive =====if i need


Easy way to Create your USB


After a successful. installation on SSD ======= HFS+ file system you can use the  chris1111 method to convert the file System from HFS to APFS

I updated to Beta 6 from the App Store. Only had to use an older kext from El Capitan to get Wifi working. With version 5, my USB installer had Clover 4173, and the EFI from an existing working version of High Sierra copied to it. Clover 4173 pretty much took care of things. I am using APFS.

I wish I knew the kinda stuff you did. I know mine is a Z800 and yours is a 400, but I bet they are similar. Maybe I could show you my config settings and maybe you could shed some insight into what does what. Some of them I know, but some I don't. I don't use a dsdt or ssdt. I can post more data if anyone thinks it will help another user. I also have a reddit post I recently made about my journey with this machine. Maybe it can provide assistance also:

Enclosed are some screen shots of what I got going on. The movie is of a recent boot.

Watched your video.. try booting with "nv_disable=1" without the quotes.

First thing ...

 

Be sure that your disk controller is set to AHCI or ACHI/RAID in the BIOS setup, not IDE.

Speedstepping still intact. Did nothing before or after the install other use an older kext for my wifi, and as I don't use nullcpu, installed a previously patched Applintelcpupowermanagement kext. Temperatures are the same as when I run Widows 10 on the same machine.

How would one patch that kext? Would an update ruin that patch?

Is there someone who has made it to run HighSierra on a z620 dual-cpu-setup? This thing is driving me up the wall. It could be my 5th hackintosh, but i just can not get him up and running.

Any users with a z620? Any hints for special z620-beast?

Thx for your PDF, but i know this guide und unfortunaly did not help. I crawled the internet for every hint.

Sierra 10.12.6 is running fine, but HighSierra 10.13 crashed with kernel panic in the early bootprocess. (to fast for a screenshot)

I'm using clover 4210, fakesmc.kext and RehabMan USBInjectAll.kext

maybe i missed something

Trying to patch my DSDT, but did not have any "CPUSCK" inside. I attached my clover folder, maybe someone can have a look what i'm missing.

Patched CUU0-CUU3 in my config.plist but it makes no difference - still kernel panic.

Hi jaymack

 

That's great!  I tried patching using post #921 guide on El Capitan 10.11.6 however I had instability up removing nullcpu kext.  Would you mind posting your

clover folder with your dsdt, ssdt, kexts, and clover config along with your patched appleintelcpupowermanagement.kext?

My z400 config is almost identical to your except I have 18gb ram. I will be attempting to upgrade to Sierra and then High Siera GM this weekend.

 

Thank You!

      Hi, I wanted to transpose my CLOVER installation to OpenCore for future updates.
       
      I followed this guide and after some googling
      https://github.com/dortania/vanilla-laptop-guide
      I've fixed the LOG: EXITBS error (RANDOM SEED like error).
      Now I still receiving the IOPCI error (kernel_task kernel panic). 
       
      My CLOVER is fully working.

      - Camera and Audio (B&O)
      - Keyboard
      - dGPU GTX 1050 is turned off
       
      On OpenCore I translated everything except the battery (I just need to apply the If statement in ACPI), but I want first to boot on Mac OS using the OpenCore.

      **********************************************************************************
      In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.
      **********************************************************************************
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.
       

       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi (currently disabled in BIOS).  I may replace this with Brcm, but am using only Ethernet (IntelMausi) for now.
