First post here: thanks for keeping this project alive throughout this time. I just bought a Surface Book 2, and I’m wondering if the steps here are going to work.

 

With regards to your High Sierra installation, how did you get this to work? Did you also go through the conversion to the new APFS format?

 

Thanks!

Hey, there, I don't know whether it's gonna work or not, but if it works, it's probably gonna work better since it's a newer CPU platform. The HD graphics has been updated and the problem on Skylake like black screen when booted shouldn't come back on newer CPUs. Do use IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup and Lilu.

No you can still use HFS+, if the system still boots to a black screen on the internal display, you might be out of luck, the only way you can get the thing work if there's no display is through a HDMI cable which I don't think you are gonna like.

Thanks for your reply. I’ve just tried booting from a High Sierra USB installer – however it gets stuck at the following error and keeps looping here.

 

Any ideas what’s causing this?

Did it work?

No it did not...

Dear folks,

I followed the step by step guide carefully, however i still can't get the surface book boot to the usb.

Maybe I miss the step or whatever.

since i am using 10.12. i started from below

  • Download Clover from Clover Official Download Page
  • Install Clover by choosing "Install UEFI Version only, install to EFI partition, Install Themes, Driver64UEFI(unselect CsmVideoDxe-64)
  • After installing, you should see a Partition called EFI mounted, and it's your thumb drive
  • (Copy the EFI folder from Installing OS X to the EFI Partition) only do this if it didn't do atomically
  • Downloadzip.gif  SurfaceDriver.zip   1.22MB   640 downloads and follow the instruction in the ReadMe.txt to paste the files into your CLOVER folder

then after that continue to this :

 

++++++++++Notice for 10.12 USB Creation++++++++++

The pervious way of making the 10.11 drive won't work anymore in 10.12, instead, after downloading the 10.12 install app, you'll need to follow the following steps

  1. Show hidden files by executing this commanddefaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
  2. Navigate to /Application/Install macOS Sierra/Contents/SharedSupport and mount InstallESD.dmg

  3. ​Open "Disk Utility", restore the USB drive with Basesystem.dmg (hidden) in the mounted DMG file.

  4. Copy /Packages in the mounted DMG file to the restored USB's /System/Installation. Delete the old link before proceeding to the copy.

  5. ​Copy basesystem.dmg and basesystem.chunklist to the root directory of your USB drive

=================

even if i reverse the step, the usb still can not boot.

Please help what step i missed??? 

TIA

      Salve a tutti ragazzi,
      Mi sono appena iscritto e innanzi tutto vorrei esprimere la mia gratitudine per l'aiuto offerto. Il mio problema come da titolo riguarda il mio Pavilion Power 15 più precisamente il modello cb015nl. Ho notato che c'era un altro topic su un modello simile ma immagino che anche se i modelli sono simili non è detto che siano compatibili quindi ne ho creato uno per il mio modello. Per arrivare al dunque, sono riuscito ad installare con successo Mojave 10.14 ma ho riscontrato diversi problemi una volta avviato l'OS. Quello che non riesco a far funzionare è l'indicatore della batteria, il power managment (Stop non funziona e la luminosità), la porta ethernet e credo che la scheda wifi sia incompatibile, le gesture del trackpad, e l'audio che con una scheda audio esterna funziona a meraviglia e l'ultimo grosso problema è che non riesco a far partire clover senza la usb di installazione, ho installato clover bootoader sull'hd dove ho mojave ma niente senza la usb mi parte il bootloader di hp/windows. Premetto che sono partito con una copia di mojave scaricata dall'appstore. Vi allego il report di HackInfo sperando che possa essere d'aiuto per il troubleshooting

      ciao, 
       
      ho un problema con un monitor Dell p2715q 4k, funziona bene a prima vista, ma quando lavoro su programmi piu' pesanti, ho qualche problemino , del tipo che su certe azioni risulta rallentato a livello grafico. Invece se ridimensionato il monitor alla risoluzione nativa (3840x2160), sembra che questo problema sparisca. In pratica ho problemi solo nelle dimensioni intermedie. sapete se si puo' fare qualcosa? Il problema credo sia dovuto al monitor e non alla scheda video, perche' su un monitor full hd non ho problemi di rallentamento. 
       
      Per ora sto usando solo Lilu e wahtervergreen , senza questi il monitor nemmeno si accende.
       
      Se avete idee sono bene accette, 
       
      Grazie!

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac.
       
      Features:
      - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process.
      - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers).
      - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly).
      - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too.
      - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal.
      - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code.
      - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk.
      - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you.
      - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool.
      - Uses recent, modern, APIs and SDKs and the Swift 3 language.
      - Transparent graphics style available (type alt-S or choose from the menu bar: View -> Use transparent style).
      - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update.
      - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer.
       
      Features that are planned for future versions:
      - Install and configure [Clover](https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/).
      - Install kexts into Clover's kexts folder.
      - Clover drivers customization
      - Use custom DSDT in Clover
      - Integrated pre-made Clover config templates database from a remote and open repository.
      - Support for other languages, at least Italian.
       
      # Requirements:
      - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer).
      - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer.
      - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

      To build a Hackintosh never was easier. If you want cheap Hackintosh and have it quickly and 100% working and without any knowledge how to tweak things, this video is right for you. $70 Hackintosh in Apple PowerMac G5 case. Surprisingly capable! Clover folder free or with DSDT and SSDT edits included.
