[Guide] Install macOS Sierra 10.12.5 on GA-Z170X-Gaming 5

Clover is up to date. So I copied the Kexts other to the "other" Folder. Still the same Panic as before it seems...

 

Do you have a tutorial on how to migrate to High Sierra? Maybe that resolves the issue...

 

If you updated the version of the clover it might help to place them inside the other folder. I migrated to macOS high sierra and since then I use the “other” folder

Okay, so I figured it out:

I installed Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext using Kext Wizard and I was wondering, why I did not see them under Library > Extensions. I thought, maybe the tool sucks, so I downloaded ##### which showed me 2 paths for Extensions. So, when I had a look at the 2nd path (HDD > System > Library > Extensions) I saw that Lilu was there, but also BOTH of the conflicting fixes NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext AND NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext were there. It all made sense now...

Previously, I had put NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext AND NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext in my Clover Kext Folder.

So these BOTH got injected into HDD > System > Library > Extensions and REMAINED there even after deleting them from the EFI Partition. doe....

So, I just deleted NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext from the System > Library > Extensions Folder, reboot and bingo, everything is back to normal. A whole day wasted on this isht, FML.

I performed a direct update from macOS Sierra 10.12.6 to High Sierra 10.13.3 (Full Installer) and all went smoothly the only thing that needs to be added to the Clover's EFI folder is the APFS.efi which can be found under \Usr\standalone\i386 on the macOS High Sierra installer. This file is necessary if you use a SSD because in the update process macOS will update the HFS format to APFS.

 

You need to add this file to Clover's EFI folder under: \EFI\Clover\Drivers64UEFI otherwise Clover's won't be able to detect and boot from the new APFS formatted SSD.

 

If you are using a nVidia GPU you'll need to update the web drivers according to your GPU's model and the macOS's build number.

 

Important note:

 

If you ever decide to update your existing macOS Sierra to High Sierra make sure you have a backup of your data and the EFI folder just incase something goes wrong.

 

I know I was suppose to create a guide but unfortunately being busy at work prevents me from doing so.

If I find the time I will create the guide and I will post it in a new Topic.

 

That being said I have to say nVidia web drivers are not working as smoothly as Sierra (at least with my GPU) so that's another reason for the delay on the Guide because the performance of the system specially in the GUI and the metal performance is a bit laggy.

 

If you need more explanations just let me know.

 

 

Good Luck.

Thanks for the insight. Since I have High Sierra running on my macmini I could test it a bit and decided to stay away from it on my main machine.

 

Because I don't like the way High Sierra handles the installation of audio plugins. After installing plugins they won't be recognized by the host unless you reboot the system. But I don't have the patience for a current OS handling installs like Windows 98. ;)

You're welcome :)

 

I don't know about the Audio plugins and the reboot issue you just mentioned but personally I'm waiting for the next update from apple and the nvidia to see if they fix the lags or not, otherwise I might go back to Sierra for the time being.

 

The lags are making my rig almost useless unless I use the previous nVidia Web Drivers.

I think I am going to stay with sierra and wait for what's coming next or until Apple forces me to upgrade again by chainging Logics minimum OS version requirements…

That sounds like a good idea. Sierra was pretty stable on macs and hacks but I’m experiencing weird behavior and decrease in performance on several iMacs as well so it might be better if we stay on sierra for now

I had same experience, so I moved to AMD card and everything is smooth. Its smoother even then on Sierra with NVIDIA.

I updated mine about 3 weeks ago, but it says F22d in the BIOS, I checked gigabyte's website and it's F22f. There is no F22d That's Weird! I used QFlash.

Does it have any effect on the nVidia's lag or it's the same?

I've rolled back to the 104 drivers but will test newer drivers tomorrow and let you know. Every other bios for this board has flashed fine with qflash except F22f.

Hey buddy,
I was testing the new 10.13.4 beta 7 and I noticed that sound after sleep doesn't work anymore, does it work on your rig?

Updating bios did not help lag situation so back to 104 drivers. I'll check sound after sound once the 10.13.4 update is done and update post.

Update to 10.13.4 went smooth, still using .104 drivers. I have audio after sleep, i have made no adjustments. Just make sure codeccommander is installed in S/L/E or L/E, mine is in L/E and config.plist still has darkwake 8.

Hi! 

Want to notice that with new AppleALC.kext there is no more need to use CodecCommander and darkwake= !

Sound after sleep work like it should.

AppleALC.kext
AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext
FakeSMC.kext
IntelGraphicsFixup.kext
IntelMausiEthernet.kext
Lilu.kext
WhateverGreen.kext
 

I have all my hardware works on 10.13.4 and no issue with sleep.

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub Updated to Clover r4861 Updated Kexts Shift to use WhatEvergreen.kext SSDT updates for T460 Added Frank's T470p DSDT files Added T470 DSDT Remove kextunload/kextload in /etc/rc.sleep and /etc/rc.wake to avoid KP on sleep
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      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 (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.
