That would be great, because I don't understand most of the things going on in here.

 

I tried updating via App Store but that failed. So a nice updated guide for High Sierra would be highly appreciated.

Can I ask you to update your signature with your hardware specs please, it would be helpful to know about your hardware it might have help to know what you are using to make the guide more universal.

Ok, Thanks for the update and first of all welcome to InsanelyMac.com and my topic :)

 

I assume you read the whole guide and created the installer using the CreateInstallMedia right?

 

Is your SATA settings set to AHCI in BIOS?


Here is the Latest version of the Clover r4289.

Clover_v2.4k_r4289.pkg.zip

No it's only the installer version. You can use it to update your existing EFI folder. or you can send me the EFI folder that you are currently using and I will take a look at it to see if anything is in order.

So guys, anyone update to 10.13.2?

after update I have sleep issue.

 

And somebody has a legacy usb kext to our motherboard and patched dsdt? with dsdt from first post a had many error during boot. 

here's my EFI folder https://1drv.ms/u/s!Amvk7o5bHjRkhZQd1Kzg6fW_xKb9kg

I decided to go DSDT free for a while and everything seemed to be working fine. Those errors won't affect your performance (unless you have noticed otherwise) you can ignore them.

I'm only using UEFI so no comment on the legacy part.

 

If you decide to ditch the DSDT you'll need the Audio patch under ACPI section "change HDAS to HDEF" and the "FixShutdown-0004" patches.

I haven't tested the 10.13.2 beta yet.

Im using that EFI folder.             #251           

 

Clover_v2.4k_r4289.pkg.zip  show me.. can't be installed in that disk ( my usb installer drive with Sierra )

I had the same problem once before. macOS High Sierra couldn't see any of my hard disks on another rig (Asus Prime Z270 A) I just created another USB disk with the CreateInstallMedia method and then I could install the macOS High Sierra. I suggest you do the same. Erase the USB disk, use the command to create a brand new installer:

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

and then put the EFI folder in the EFI partition of the disk and try again.

Remember to re-genarate the SMBIOS for your new installer using Clover Configurator, just open the config.plist and select "SMBIOS" then select iMac17,1 and it will add all the information to the config.plist

 

P.S:

 

That EFI partition is for macOS High Sierra 10.13.x if you want to install macOS Sierra 10.12.x you might need to make some adjustments.

Which macOS you are trying to install?

Now me too using DSDT free and only UEFI, my clover folder in the link (previous posts< can't download to forum, so its onedrive).

I think that might be a better config than mine.. :)

This is the config that I'm using on my rig, I post it here so you can see I have no other patches under ACPI, you use lot's of patches in your config.plist, Just compare my config with yours. I don't use my iGFX and I have no settings under "Devices" - "Arbitrary" note that

If your hard disk is brand new:

 

Open "Disk Utility" from the top left cornet click "View" and then select "Show All Devices"

 

Your HDD should be there and then Select the disk and Erase it using Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID Partition Map then you can select it and Install macOS.

Oh thank.. now that working. 

Will look how work with my 970 SC and my audio.

 

I have some question... 

 

I need install clover in my HDD too ? with efi files from my USB ? 

That's great, you're welcome.

 

Yes, in general if you want to make a disk bootable for macOS you can either install clover in the ESP (or in the root but I suggest installing it in the ESP) partition or copy the EFI folder of another bootable disk in to the ESP

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (March 2020) Updated to Clover r5105 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
        Various Tweaks over Last months The main branch in my github repo is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle seems to work on Sierra, HighSierra, Mojave and Catalina. There is an OpenCore branch in the repo as an alternative to Clover. This guide was developed for a Clover implementation. But the thread has evolved to include discussion of both Clover and Opencore for these systems: T460 and T470 family of ThinkPads.
       
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (the old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.
      ACPI Files
      New Installation - Steps and Details
      Part 1 - OS Installation
      Part 2- Post OS Installation and Setup

      A really good motherboard with macOS compatible bult-in Wifi & Bluetooth

      ASUS Z170-Deluxe (with Wifi)
      BIOS: v3801
      CPU: i7-6700K 4.0 to 4.2 GHz (w/o OC)
      RAM: 1x 16 GB Corsair DDR4 2400 MHz
      GPU: Intel HD 530 (Headless) & ASUS Radeon RX 5700 OC 8 GB
      Audio: ALC 1150
      Ethernet: I219V2, I211-AT
      WiFi & Bluetooth: Broadcom BCM94360HMB Half-Mini-PCI-E
      More Specs: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-DELUXE/specifications/
       
      Catalina 10.15.4 - Windows 10
      What is working:
      BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound (all ports) USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) No problem so far ASUS HyperKit with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB Hardware decoding/encoding on both HD 530 and RX 5700 iGPU QuickSync is used in the default config.plist To use dGPU for hw decode/encode you need to disable iGPU in BIOS and boot with "config_dgpu_enc_dec.plist" (this will use iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS, so you may need to resign in to use your iCloud) System Integrity Protection is Enabled by default. If you need to boot with SIP disabled you may use "config_debug.plist" or disable it manually in Clover settings. If you want Enabled SIP but with allowing unsigned kexts you may boot with "CsrActiveConfig = 0x01"  
      What is not working:
      -  
       
      Not tested:
      Thunderbolt (no equipment)  
      Issues:
      None  
      BIOS Settings:
      Boot\CSM (Compatibility Support Module): Launch CSM: Disabled Boot\Secure Boot: OS type: Other OS Secure Boot State: Disabled Advanced\System agent (sa) Configuration: VT-d: Enabled Graphics Configuration: (This is for HD 530 in headless) Primary Display: Auto (to use dGPU only this must be PEG) iGPU Multi-monitor: Enabled (to use dGPU only this must be Disabled) RC6(Render Standby): Enabled (to use dGPU only this must be Disabled) DVMT Pre-Allocated: 128M Advanced\PCH Storage Configuration: SATA Mode Selection: AHCI HyperKit: Enable (if you have NVMe SSD with ASUS HyperKit) Advanced\CPU Configuration: Intel Virtualization Technology: Enabled CPU- Power Management Control: Intel SpeedStep: Enabled CPU- C-States: Enabled Intel SpeedShift: Enabled  
      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5112): Click here -> ASUS-Z170-Deluxe_Cata.zip  
      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia, gibMacOS - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager, gibMacOS) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:
       

       




       
       
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      Installed Catalina 10.15.4 (19E287) Vanilla with OpenCore on my HP Elitedesk 800 G2 Mini.

      Everything is working (Wifi isn't but I'm using Ethernet anyway) but my second display.

      I'm trying to get them both connected via DisplayPort as the only other output on my computer is VGA.

      I've tried manually setting the framebuffer arguments, but I cannot get it to output to both displays. Yet if I unplug one and restart, it will use the other one just fine.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
