@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

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.

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.

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.13 installation on MBR partition.
       
      To use those patched files you must follow HowTo to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
      The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.13 Firmware check by crazybirdy.
       
      What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
      1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.13 installation on MBR partition.
      2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
      3. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR and GPT partition (GPT+recovery).
      No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
       
      What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method?
      As the following....
      1. createinstallmedia method,
          needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only.
      2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12),
          install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS.
          We can manually format as MBR or GPT, HFS+ or APFS on installation screen like as 10.12.
          We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13 and 10.14 on installation screen now.
          Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, and 10.14 future versions, I think so.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version.
      3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+),
          install via stage 2 automatically, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition, and can be installed as update from previous version.

      How to make 10.13 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?
      Just use EasyMBR-InstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
      Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to update 10.13.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?

      How to make 10.13 installer for MBR (MBR-Automatic-Method)?
      Just use 13MBRinstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
      Read HowTo inside the dmg first, new for 10.13+.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to update 10.13.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
       
      And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
