[pre-release] macOS High Sierra

You can use any version of macOS, Sierra or High Sierra.

You just need to enroll the OS.

It's enrolled, I was able to download full app before(DB1,2,3,4,5) without this problem.

Btw I tried rebooting router and pc then download with direct link and isn't working...

That's wired, because I encountered the same problem twice and each time I could download the app after doing those steps. 

Addition:

 

Can you do a fresh install of macOS to an external device?

Strange  :angel_not:

Yeah maybe I need to reinstall my sierra or maybe it's because Lilu? I saw few lines upper with Lilu related errors.

Ok, someone from forum gives me a link to DB7, but now I have the old ICH10 problem with waiting for root, I tried Core.pkg method but gives me instant error.

Any suggestions?

Rebuild new prelinkedkernel for ICH10.

 

An advantage of this method is that you can change kexts in the installer's /S/L/E eg you can replace AppleAHCIPort.kext v329 with v328, to fix "Still Waiting for Root Device Error" on systems with ICH10

@LuCyr04,

 

I followed @crazybirdy's instructions in "HowTo-10.13.x.txt" 

 

 

 

A. (Disk1mbrInstaller, minimal size: 2.1 GB)
   Make BaseSystem partition to boot the MBR-installer.

1. Restore BaseSystem.dmg to HFS partition and rename the partition’s name as Disk1mbrInstaller as /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/

2. Remove /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Installation/Packages first (since DB6), make directory of /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Installation/Packages, and copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg to /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg

3. OSInstaller replace to
/Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/OSInstaller.framework/Versions/A/OSInstaller

4. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages/Core.pkg/System/Library/Kernels/kernel to /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
(use Pacifist v3.2.14+ to access the contents of Core.pkg, and make directory /System/Library/Kernels first.)
(Need kernel only if you use Chameleon with -f to boot the installer disk, needn't with Clover.)

5. Done for Disk1mbrInstaller.

 

 

 

and extracted /S/L/E & /Kernels from "Core.pkg" to Disk1mbrInstaller using Pacifist as explained in his post#2042, replaced AppleAHCIPort.kext v329 with v328, then updated kernelcache/prelinked kernel on the USB Installer...

 

post-846696-0-27616700-1503830361_thumb.png

sudo mv /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.329
sudo cp -R ~/Downloads/AppleAHCIPort_v328.kext /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext 
sudo touch /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller 

 

 

 

PS

 

I successfully upgraded DB6 to DB7 with my original DB6 Disk1mbrInstaller.  Only needed to replace OSInstall.mpkg from DB6/17A344b with OSInstall.mpkg from DB7/17A352a in /Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Installation/Packages folder.

 

Steps to upgrade install:

1) Directly run DB7 "Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app", targeting the desired HFS+ or APFS installation partition --> automatically creates "macOS Install Data" folder on that volume

2) At first restart, boot to Disk1mbrInstaller ---> choose language ---> files from install packages written to disk

3) At second restart, boot to fully upgraded High Sierra partition  :).

@Lucyr04 

in desperation of cause you can use OSInstall.mpkg, you start it on the empty SSD or HD

and if it does not see the disk, Unmount the SSD leaving the program open, and remount the ssd. He should see him

PS:I am not recommend this method, only in total desperation  :rolleyes:

This is the same as Core.pkg open the Package select a destination

and if it does not see the disk, Unmount the SSD leaving the program open, and remount the ssd. He should see him

You need a empty spare Disk

You either didn't create Disk1mbrInstaller properly - download the patch from here and replace OSInstaller in

 

/Volumes/Disk1mbrInstaller/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/OSInstaller.framework/Versions/A/OSInstaller

 

or did not boot to it at the first restart (probably chose "Boot macOS Install" instead)....

 

When done properly, the patch bypasses both the MBR check (so can install onto MBR or GPT disks) and the firmware check (so you shouldn't be getting OSInstall.mpkg error).

Sorry, maybe you don't understand what I'm trying to do, I try with mbr basesystem method.

Core.pkg isn't working anymore for me, I get error.

Oh, I think I skipped this step by mistake, sorry.

I am not talk about MBR

I am talk about a similaire méthode of Core.pkg

OSInstal.mpkg do the same job as Core; I know core not working

Try MBR and if this not working you can try this

PS:I am not recommend this method, try (OsInstall.mpkg) only in total desperation

      Making a High Sierra USB Installer Entirely From Scratch in Windows
      This is a proof of concept tutorial, to show it's possible to create a vanilla High Sierra installer, entirely from scratch, in Windows (even without App Store downloaded "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from a real Mac ).  @PikeRAlpha's link to Apple's Software Catalog provides us with all the URLs necessary to download the needed files directly from Apple instead of some dubious source from the internet...
       

      Pre-Requisites
      8GB or larger USB drive Boot Disk Utility v2.1.2017rev021b from @CVAD TransMac (free 15 day trial) Paragon Hard Disk Manager Free Download Installer Files Directly from Apple
      1)  Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist (Hint - search page for "InstallESD" to find its URL and others nearby)

      to a folder named "SharedSupport" on your Windows NTFS drive.  A browser download manager (eg Chrono for Chrome, dTA for FireFox) is handy since InstallESD is >4GB ---> allows you to pause/resume interrupted download...

      2)  Rename InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg
      3)  Edit InstallInfo.plist with WordPad/text editor to remove the chunklistURL and chunklistid keys for InstallESD, and renaming it from InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg (example of edited file attached to this post)...
      Note:  You can verify the SHA1 checksum of your InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg with the correct ones at this website.
      Boot Disk Utility to format the Installer USB and Restore OS X Base System HFS partition
      1.  Format USB with BDU & latest Clover ---> creates boot files in CLOVER partition + second FAT partition
      2.  Extract 4.hfs from \SharedSupport\BaseSystem.dmg with BDU --> save to it's local folder
      3.  Restore 4.hfs to USB second partition with BDU --->  2nd partition becomes bootable "OS X Base System"
      Paragon Hard Disk Manager to extend HFS Partition to its Full Extent
      Open Paragon Partition Manager Free and resize the second partition of the USB drive to the full size allowed.  Don't forget to apply the changes at the end...
      Transmac to Copy "SharedSupport" folder to OS X Base System
      1.  Open the TransMac program and navigate to the HFS+ Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents folder.  Right click anywhere in the empty space on the RHS pane and select "Copy Here"...
      2.  In the next stage, select the "SharedSupport" folder we created above as the "Files and Folders to be copied to the Mac Volume"...
       
      Clover Settings
      Clover configuration is required now.  The default config.plist (in the Clover FAT32 partition of the USB) maybe sufficient to boot your machine if you’re lucky.  If not, the hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide has some good explanations on the various settings available and also offers sample configuration files based on CPU type.  Also, look at the Clover Wiki, Clover Instructions and Clover Configuration Thread for pointers and edit /EFI/Clover/config.plist accordingly with Wordpad or Notepad.
      The location of the important configuration files for Clover are summarized below
      config.plist--->EFI/CLOVER folder DSDT.aml with or without SSDT.aml--->EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (don't need one if your DSDT is auto patched by Clover in config.plist) Kexts eg FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement --->EFI/CLOVER/kexts/<osx version> or /Other. NB BootDiskUtility by default already has FakeSMC.kext installed here.  You may need to add VoodooPS2Controller for your laptop keyboard/trackpad to work. If UEFI booting, you will most likely need one of the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 drivers copied from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers-off/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. If you want to use the installer to run High Sierra in Windows on VMware, you can follow my guide to set up the Virtual Machine and replace Clover's default config with EFI_Clover for VMware (which is compatible to run in VMware).  In the screenshots below, I have attached the USB Installer (in this case PhysicalDrive7) to my macOS Virtual Machine.  Reboot the system to the USB installer to install High Sierra ...
      What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?
      Not a problem, as long as we get "OS X Base System" bootable, we can launch terminal from the Utilities Menu to copy the SharedSupport folder over to the Installer app.  In essence, we will build the full installer app = 5GB+ on the target HD eg "Macintosh HD", by copying both the "small" installer app = 15MB (on "OS X Base System") and the SharedSupport folder from the NTFS volume (mounted in this example on /Volumes/DATA)...
      -bash-3.2# cd / -bash-3.2# cp -R Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/ -bash-3.2# cp -R /Volumes/DATA/SharedSupport /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/  
      ...then start installation with the startosinstall utility...
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app  
      The above steps can be automated with the attached "startosinstall.command" script, which will assemble "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on "Macintosh HD" and launch the startosinstall utility targeting the "Macintosh HD" volume.  Copy/download to "Macintosh HD", then run in terminal (after attaching DATA USB with /Shared Support folder)...
      cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD" chmod +x startosinstall.command ./startosinstall.command Updated Download Links for macOS Mojave 10.14.5_18F132
      Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist  
      Note: In Mojave, Apple has removed the --converttoapfs NO and --applicationpath arguments from the startosinstall utility....
       
      eg to use startosinstall for the above section "What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?", the syntax is now
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD  
      This basically means that for Mojave, the default installation will always convert the target volume to the apfs file system.
