@chris1111 Thanks for the assistance.  Unfortunately, my problem was not my installation method.  There is something about either my hardware or my custom files that makes High Sierra loop on me when I try to boot up.  Here's my attempt to use your installation method:

This did absolutely nothing.  However, I did try to install DP4 over DP1.  Do I really have to wipe my High Sierra partition clean in order to install?  I have made lots of settings adjustments to my liking that I would have to start over from scratch if that is required for the startosinstall method to work.

You do not need to format the drive, it will install over  EDIT**  ➤ if its a HFS+J Install

 

I do not know what you will lose and what you will not lose because I have always done clean install but I know that you can do an update this way
EDIT**
For Update HS I have always used Apple Menue and thats working good here

Kinda OT but not, I'm looking for a good reliable USB Bluetooth adaptor for my desktop that supports High Sierra, Sierra and windows, linux would be a bonus as well. Any suggestions?

I'm using the ASUS BT400, works OOB in Sierra and High Sierra (with patch to enable handoff + continuity support).

It works without the need of installing any drivers in Windows 10 and Linux too

After updating to pb4 (dp5), I'm getting a new device in the sidebar called "Remote Disc". There's no trace of it anywhere other than the sidebar. It can be neither ejected nor removed.

 

Did you try: Open Sharing preferences (choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Sharing). Unselect the Remote disc Sharing checkbox

​Yeah i have an ASUS BT400 too here. And its a very good product, although much more expensive than a BT CSR4 module which is like... only $2 on ebay. So I would recommend just buying that anyhow first of all. Then if it don't work, you've given it a shot but only lost $2 there. Which is literally nothing. Then buy the ASUS BT400.

@mnfesq  I have a HP Probook laptop and I used startosinstall

This is Apple's new way to deploy MacOS or Upgrade

I never have issue on that way in my Probook

 

Its the new tool inside the Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app

name is startosinstall

Your just need a Blank SSD formate in HFS+J (Mac OS Extended journaled / Guid table) before starting the tools

Make sure you have Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app in your Applications 

Working with BETA4, BETA 5, PBETA3, PBETA4

Working for Internal or External Drive

 

Command for APFS

"/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall" --applicationpath "/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app" --converttoapfs YES --volume /Volumes/USB --rebootdelay 30 --nointeraction

 

Command for HFS+J

"/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall" --applicationpath "/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app" --converttoapfs NO --volume /Volumes/USB --rebootdelay 30 --nointeraction

 

USB is the volumes, You can change he name of the volume

Usage: startosinstall

⬇︎

 

Usage: startosinstall --applicationpath <install macOS.app

path>

Arguments

--applicationpath, a path to copy of the OS installer

application to start

the install with.

--license, prints the user license agreement only.

--agreetolicense, agree to license the license you printed

with --license.

--rebootdelay, how long to delay the reboot at the end of

preparing. This

delay is in seconds and has a maximum of 300 (5 minutes).

--pidtosignal, Specify a PID to which to send SIGUSR1 upon

completion of the

prepare phase. To bypass "rebootdelay" send SIGUSR1 back

to startosinstall.

--converttoapfs, specify either YES or NO on if you wish

to convert to APFS.

If you do not specify this, the default is YES.--usage,

prints this message.

 

 

Its verry fast, when its finish you have to clic Terminate 

Reboot

⬇︎

There's no such option as Remote Disc Sharing in the System Preferences > Sharing. All the checkboxes are already unselected.

@Bronxteck: KernelPM Patch is only needed if MSR is locked, which is not the case!

Bios is completely stock unlocked...

 

But beside of that I‘ve selected it and no changes...

Let's check what will be changed then. ;)

 

Original apfs.efi from dp6:

dp6_apfs.efi.zip

 

Patched apfs.efi to suppress logs (thx http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/291655-ozmosis/page-244?do=findComment&comment=2443313)

dp6_wo_log_apfs.efi.zip

 

Note: Seemingly we have to use the new apfs driver, otherwise it will stuck at boot logo.

 

Kext Inject - No changes, should be fine.

XCPM related patches - No changes, should be fine.

USB max limit patch - No changes.

 

Will add more info here if I can find anything interesting...

@DSM2

Try removing EmuVariableuefi driver from Drivers64UEFI folder and reboot.

After High Sierra public Beta 4 install i got the same message on reboot, and this seemed to fix it.

I fixed it by using the apfs.efi from beta 5 (17A330h) instead of using the one from a previous beta

      Restarted 3 times 
      update went Fine and smooth with clover r5119

      Hi there,
       
      So I have my Windows computer, used a USB with Clover setup to boot into Mojave OS that I installed on the SD card in the computer. The world was a great place and all was well!

      Then I did the steps to partition the pc system to now include the additional drive that I would put Clover on. Here's where I messed up: Instead of directly copying over the full Clover folder into the EFI folder of the new drive (which just had the Boot & Microsoft folders in it), I replaced the EFI's boot folder with Clover's boot folder. So the EFI folder now contains a Microsoft folder, a Clover folder, and Clover's Boot folder only.

      Now, I only can access the Clover boot up menu, the macOS, but no Windows at all. Even if I go into BIOS and pick Windows Boot Manager or Partition 1 for the start up, I get a black screen for both. I can still access the macOS as well as Shell, but I don't know what that does other than displaying all of the yellow text fly by..

      Is there a kind soul out there that can help me get Windows back to boot? Keep in mind I'm a bit of a newbie here so laying out the common-sense steps would be helpful!

      Thank you in advance!

      Hello everyone,
      I found a guide on how to install Catalina on Lenovo M920q, everything works well but the installation is freezing up.
      The USB bootable drive is a recovery one with internet based installation. The internet is working well on the pre-installation setup (I tested it, when you can use the utilities).
      The installation is freezing whether I am installing the macOS or not.
      I've attached my EFI partition so you can check if there's anything to add.
      Will realy appreciate any kind of help (quit noob to the whole thing).
      Thanks in advance and stay safe!
       
      NOTE: I did followed up the troubleshooting guide of OpenCore installation forum and the answer was to add the  NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to the kexts and configure it on the .plist file.
      This is the original EFI folder: EFI.zip
      Thats the one with the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext added: EFI.zip

      This new case will be arriving for me tomorrow.
       
      It's the model M25-W White Version.
       
       
      It has an integrated 7.1 sound card.
      Which means the machine will effectively have 2 sound cards...
       
      Unfortunately I couldn't find any info on the card's model.  
       
      Does anyone have experience with Hackintoshing on non-standard audio configurations like this?
