@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

preparing. This

--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

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

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.

Does anyone has an Idea how to fix this error?

 

Using a Asus X299-A with an i7 7800X

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

I cannot boot DP6.  Same as DP5.  It loops right after I get to the second stage of the boot process (right after the boot glitch).  In verbose mode, there is some text that appears for a fraction of a second and disappears for a few seconds, then reappears for a fraction of a second and disappears once again.  That's why I think it's looping.  The last entry I can read is the com.apple.windowserver started for 0 seconds and is pushed out for 10 seconds - something like that.  Any ideas what's going on?  It has to be one of my hardware devices or DSDT patches.

Hi PMHeart ^_^

 

is there a clover version >4152? Do you have it? What about the External NVMe Icon Patch? Any updates?

 

Cheers,

The only way I managed to get the Beta 6 is with the upgrade

Create install Media and satrtosinstall does not work here
Much work remains to be done to find the solution

Update:

Bummer, back to square one for me  :(

I get this:

 

macOS could not be installed on your computer

 

An error occurred while verifying firmware.

Quit the installer to restart your computer and try again.

 

 

and after restart the OSInstall.mpkg error.

I tested with clover r4165 and r4166. Results were the same.

 

I was trying to install the new release on a HDD formatted as APFS. I'm gonna try installing it on the same HDD with HFS format to see if that makes any difference.

Did you get the same errors as I did?

      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.

      Hi everyone !
       
       I build a new os on High Sierra and i have problem with my Skarkoon RAID 5 - 5 bay, is unmounting, work fine in windows but not in Mac Os.
      I use a card eSata in chipset Marvell 88SE9215, and i have the kext 3-party eSata  but nothings change.
      I try with the AppleAHCIPort.kext v328, nothings change.
       
      Any solution ?
       
      Thanks a lot !
       
      Config : GA-Z68X-UB3-B3 // BIOS UEFI, Version: U1f //

      I have what's been said to be a natively supported wifi card, but for the life of me I cannot get it working properly with High Sierra. It is detected in DPCIManager but the wifi symbol at the top is hollowed and I can't turn it on.
       
      Here's some basic info about my hackintosh. It's running an i7 9700k with an MSI Z390-A PRO, a GTX 1070, and it's SMBIOS is running as an iMac 18.1

      Someone else has posted here about this with an ac66, which I think is very similar and uses the same device number 43A0. But he didn't get his problem solved in the end. And I have looked up this problem in a million different ways, I haven't found a solution that works from any yet.
       
      I've tried a large amount of different kext patches, kexts (fakepciid, airportbrcmfixup, etc), changing fake ID, modifying kext info.plist files, and every combination of those, none have gotten it to properly work.
       
      I have gotten it to work in one way but it's so unstable that it's unusable. Using the IO80211family.kext from yosemite works, but then it will randomly freeze about 10-15 minutes in, and then it'll not boot 9/10 times, and when it will it'll freeze on the login or right after. It gives errors about out of date kext, only way get back in is by reinstalling. So I figure this method is unusable.
       
      I'm just stumped on why a supposed confirmed working out of box card doesn't just just work, even with every amount of tweaking and adding kexts. I'm in my 4th day of almost nonstop testing and researching on how to fix this, and I'm too stubborn and determined to just buy a different card. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Hello and thanks for taking the time to read this, I can't seem to get past this screen, I've tried booting in verbose and safe mode to help diagnose the issue, but it keeps looking like the system is rejecting my CPU? am I forgetting something to do in the bootloader menu of clover on the drive? Kernel extensions? or the plist files? I've tried a lot of things. help would be much appreciated.

      Don't have access to download the Mojave installer and try that, but I assume it would be similar to this.

      I have included my EFI boot loader, and the error in hopes that it may help
