KernelPanic by Lilu !!!
Lilu too old.
Boot with flag -liluoff -alcoff
... then renew Lilu and AppleALC !!!
Update Lilu to version 1.2.1 and AppleALC 1.2.2, then all right!
 
 
 
LayoutID 11 (0B) or even better (NEW) LayoutID 13 (0D) !!!ill will 
 
Optiplex works, yes.  :wub:
 
@for all:
First DP Beta 10.13.4 works here, too.

 

Unfortunately this did not work for me. Using -alcoff and -liluoff gets me much further into the boot however it still will not complete the boot. It takes a very long time then just hangs.

Hello again,

So yesterday I got my hands on 2 SSD drives!

Thought it would be a great idea to RAID them together in the 0 config.

I installed Sierra with no problems, however I cannot seem to boot from the RAID partition using normal clover methods.

I just wondered if this was possible at all?

The only way I can get into the OS is by using a USB stick to start off with.

I also have 2 other drives in the machine both 1TB also in the RAID 0 config.

Neither of which seem to show life after the machine powers on.

 

Dell 780 core 2 Duo HD5450

 

Thanks in advance

This is what I am getting now. Did I have some hardware fail at the same time as the update?

Make a good Signature CPU exact  model , Graphics exact brand and VRam

Sorry for the delay

Well i will provide a more detailed info

I made the update via apple web page (.dmg file) not via App Store.

After this i got the same as above KP  "as.vit9696.Lilu(1.0).... etc"

After that i boot in Single user mode from Clover to remove Lilu.kext from S/L/E and when i type "exit" in the console the computer continued to load kexts or whatever (i had also checked -V) and after this booted normally .

That means i have back my computer with everything working except audio.

So i double checked that the Lilu kexts was removed from S/L/E (from contents, plugins also) and rebooted. 

Unfortunatelly i got the same KP "as.vit9696.Lilu(1.0).... etc"

I rebooted again in single user mode and searched for Lilu.kext everywhere in S/L/E and there wasn't present at all.

So i am in this state now. If the computer reboots normally  i have the above KP, but it is working normally  if i boot in single user mode after typing "exit" in the console.

I attach the config.plist and the system info .spx file for further information but with a short description the machine is iMac 12,1 Intel core I3 and Graphics Hd 5450 XFX silent 1GB .

Any help would be welcome.

I forgot  to say that i have tried and installed the latest ALC.kext and Lilu.kext (both of them 1.2.2. release) as advised in previous posts without any result.

I have also removed the ALC.kext from EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.12 (i am runing Sierra 10.12.6)

Well it looks OK. Mind to share your EFI/CLOVER folder?

 

No problem, but i am in share screen with the computer and i do not risk to make a reboot remotely.

So i will go to my work tomorrow to make a try with your config.plist and respond.

Thanks for your effort i will reply ASAP

One more question if anybody knows .

is there any budget Low Profile Graphics card (silent preferred & without extra power connector) that can play 4K@60Hz in Dell 780 or Dell790 O.O.B full working with at least two digital outputs HDMI-DVI? 

I have two Dell Hackintoshes (780-790) and want to use one of them as Home Theater P.C. with Kodi.

Thanks.

You can try this EFI

I am not touch the DSDT

 

 

Edit *****

you have the Geforce GT 1030 so I guess the WebDrivers are well install
The config.plist is according to this

Still doesn't boot. thanks for the attempt. This update must have screwed something up bad. I guess I will need to reinstall, just a shame this system has been up since El Capitan.

      I have been running macOS Mojave on my system for 3 months and everything was working pretty well.  After taking an update for clover, my entire system got wrecked, and I cannot even boot to an installation environment anymore (which I really need to do since I am starting back at square one).  I still have the old EFI folder backed up, but I know it'll only be a matter of time before Apple introduces an update that requires me to update Clover in order to work correctly.  I have tried all the available memory fixes, but none of them seem to work.  I was previously using the original osxaptiofix; so, I gave v2, and v3 a try, but to no success.  I read somewhere on the main discussion board for clover that AptioMemoryFix was no longer going to be supported and I therefor decided to skip over it (not to mention it isn't even available in newer clover installation packages).
       
      System specs:
      Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 M GAMING
      CPU Intel core i5 9600k @ stock 3.7GHz
      RAM 32GB DDR4 2667MHz
      GPU AMD Radeon RX 580 with 8GB of GDDR5
      SSD Intel 660p 512GB NVME
      NIC: Intel i210 10/100/1000 as it is natively supported in macOS
       
      I have been using the iMac 19,1 SMBIOs as I built this machine to match it as close as humanly possible.  As for my UEFI settings, I did the usual:
      Disabled Windows specific features and secure boot
      Enabled XHCI hand off
      Enabled Above 4G decoding
      Disabled onboard NIC since it is made irrelevant by my intel i210
       
      --INJECT KEXTS--
      FakeSMC
      Lilu
      WhateverGreen
      AppleALC
      USBInjectAll -- WITH PATCHED SSDT in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched
      Below are images of the errors I am receiving when trying to boot the macOS Mojave installer.
       
      with original osxaptiomemoryfix

       
      osxaptiofixv2

       
      osxaptiofixv3

       
      Anyway, if somebody can help me figure out what's going on, that'd be greatly appreciated.  My ultimate goal is to get an install with minimal clover patches as to be better prepared when the winds of change from Apple come roaring.
       
      p.s: I have also attached a copy of my EFI folder

      Clover r4989 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4989 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4989-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      Hello,
       
      I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system.
       
      For installation I used this Thread.
       
      I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore.
       
      Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080.
       
      My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB)
      Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use  Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version?
       
      Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ?
       
      About some hints where to start I would be thankful.
       
      regards
      JackBauer24
