Use CLOVER ACPI patch menu>Drop tables and drop it till you see it boots.

can you post a snapshot?

Here it is.  http://imgur.com/0kQVOzC

btw, I check your smbios section for iMac 18. Only to found its board-id is same with iMac 17. I don;t know if that's ok.

I'll check it out

I've been working all day long and I guess I'm loosing focus, maybe I need to get some rest.

I found another error in the config.plist and it's the product name it's iMac18,1 and the BIOSVersion is iMac18,2

 

Board-id doesn't matter that much but I fixed it in these files.

 

I'm glad to report that it's working on _itsmerafael's pc.

 

add the following boot flags to activate the audio:

-lilubeta and -alcbeta

 

use the latest version of lilu.kext from: https://github.com/v...6/Lilu/releases

You might also need the AppleALC.kext

iMac18,1-config.plist.zip

iMac18,2-config.plist.zip

I'm unable to get past the 'install macOS' page.

The continue button accepts a single click but is then greyed out and nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Go back to language chooser, chose your language and click Install macOS again. That solved it for me when I was stuck there

Any config above will do ok?

I'd like to know what the cause is for kabylake failing as for _itsmerafael's case.

I'm not quite sure but I think the Drop Table did the trick as Kynyo suggested, I also changed the SMBIOS from iMac17,1 which is a SkyLake machine to iMac18,1 which is a KabyLake machine.

 

so do me a favor please and for the sake of argument check the SMIOSes I posted with and without Drop Table entry to make the final assumption.

 

I don't have KabyLake CPU to test it myself.

Well, mine is a little different since I have the Pentium based kabylake cpus. I have to fake cpu id for 0306A0 in 10.12 and older OS X. I think it's the same with 10.13.

Yes, you're right older versions of macOS won't support KabyLake CPUs and you'll need to use a FakeCPU ID for them to load. But 10.13 is supporting KabyLake and 10.12.6 might also support them too, we need to wait until 10.12.6 officially gets released and we'll know for sure.

I tried your config. Failed. Even though I'd love to help you make sure if dropping table made the trick, I could not. Maybe you should ask _itsmerafael for help since he already has a working hack.

Well itsmerafael already confirmed that by removing the drop tables MATS it wasn't able to boot, so I guess that's it, we need that Drop Table.

To be honest, Pentium-based hackintosh is fairly small portion of the hacks out there. As for as I am concerned, you have to fake cpu id to ivy bridge aka 0306A0 even kernel supports your cpu. For example, 10.12 supports Skylake without problems. But pentium-based Skylake still needs to fake cpu id to 0306A0. After all, pentium differs from core series.

Good to know that. BTW, my kernel panic is quite different from itsmerafael's. So I gotta do more tests.

I tested all the config.plist and they all worked for me. But I figured I only boot if the first drop tables option on the clover is checked. I also realized that no matter which config.plist I test (18.1, 18.2 and 18.3) always appears in About This Mac as iMac Late 2015. I think it should be 2017 right?

But even so, Kaby Lake is running without FakeCPUID.

Well, there are different parts in a SMBIOS settings which I don't have right now, but there's no need to worry about that, pretty soon all the new SMBIOS settings will be added to Clover Configurator and we can easily select which ever suits us.

 

But in the meanwhile I'll work on these SMBIOS setting to see if I can make them to show the right information in the About This Mac

where can i get nullCPU.kext?

Hi, maybe you can check out #510. Success on kabylake confirmed even though it's not me. :(

Which clover revision are you using? Seems like i am not able to change config on the fly within clover itself. Even though I selected another config, the contents did not update.

 I'm using version 4081. Have you tried the drop tables with fakecpuid?

Yeah. I tried and failed. BTW, i am surprised to acknowledge that dropping a table clover could not detect for Kabylake platforms did the trick.

I hope you can find something to help you. If I can help with any test, just let me know.

I am now struggling to try to make the audio work.

Good evening Cengiz Sevinir. Did you have to perform any specific procedure to make your graphic card available?

Any news about AMD HD 5xxx?

      After a long run, I successfully upgraded High Sierra to mojave 10.14 on an intel 5 series chipset MotherBoard.
       
      MotherBoard: H55ms2
      RAM: 6GB
      GPU1: Saphire AMD RX 460
      GPU2: Nvidia 8400GS
      Storage: 500 GB HDD WD Green.
       
      The requirement:
      1) macOS pre mojave.
      2) macOS mojave installer from Apple store.
      3) Empty partition or USB to upgrade from.
      4) Un-mout all unused dmgs.
      5) GPT/GUID HDD.
       
      HOWOT:
      1) Prepare an empty partition or USB with at least 6 GB.
      2) Format the partition or USB with GUID partition table and HFS+ partition with a name BootablePartition.
      3) Go to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app.
      4) Show Package Contents.
      5) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find BaseSystem.dmg.
      6) Double click on BaseSystem.dmg to mount.
      7) From Disk Utilty click on your partition or the USB that you prepared from number (2).
      8) Click on restore, and chose OS X Base System (BaseSystem.dmg image), then restore it to that partition or USB.
      9) After restoring rename the partition back to BootablePartition.
      9) Run this command:
      rm -rfv /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 10) Create a new folder instead of the broken link and name it Packages, run this command:
      mkdir -v /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 11) Go back to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app and repeat number 2.
      12) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find InstallESD.dmg.
      13) Mount InstallESD.dmg.
      14) Run this command:
      cp -v /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages/ 15) Download the latest clover from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
      16) Install clover on your USB BootablePartition or in a different USB to boot from it. delete all your CLOVER/kext/10.xx and keep others, make sure you don't have any extra kext rather than FakeSMC.kext in the other folder.
      in my case I used FakeSMC.kext and my lan kext RealtekRTL8111.kext.
      17) known Problems in my build: 
      If I updated directly from the apple store the installer in clover will boot with a cross circle sign.
      The FIX is to add this to Clover KextToPatch Thanks to @sunKi http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327488-macos-high-sierra-final-release-is-out-17a365/page-10?do=findComment&comment=2505086 this fix is still working for me in mojave.

      19) SMBIOS mac model that I use is iMac13,2.
      20) Go to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app click on it and chose to install to your macOS Mojave partition.
      21) Reboot.
      22) From clover chose BootablePartion.
      23) If everything is okie BootablePartition will boot to install macOS mojave, wait wait wait till it finish it might take to 1 hour just wait it will reach the auto reboot soon .
      24) Boot to your old macOS Hight Sierra that will be your mojave partition now and enjoy.
       
      POST Install:
      1) audio: 
      a) Download Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext or build them from source (which I did).
      b) place them in your /EFI/CLOVER/kext/others/
      c) add your audio layout in clover/Devices dict options in my case it's ALC888B which has the layout of 1:
      <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <string>1</string> </dict> d) I had to add beta args to clover/Boot dict, argument (-lilubeta -alcbeta):
       
      <key>Arguments</key> <string>-lilubeta -alcbeta</string> 2) Add number 14 KextsToPath array to your clover as well.

      Anything else is working for me I didn't need any extra clover kext so far, I tried whatevergreen.kext to fire up my rx 460 without the helper card but no success, So I am just sticking with booting from Nvidia as a first GPU from my motherboard configuration then swap the cables after choosing my macOS partion from clover.
       
      After upgrading my HFS+ High Sierra partition converted to APFS, no know problem so far.

      Happy build and more info about the partitioning method with a more detailed instructions in this post that I used to update my Sierra to High Sierra
       
      Special thanks to crazybirdy, sunKi and all of you out there that make this happens.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      So I FINALLY got my High Sierra thumb drive to boot and once I got to the language selection screen, I noticed I lost all connectivity to my keyboard and mouse.
       
      i tried plugging in both into all of my USB ports (2.0, 3.0, 3.1) to no avail.
       
      i made sure I had the latest USBInject kext and XHCI-Unsupported kext in the Other folder.
       
      i also noticed whilst troubleshooting, the thumb drive will ONLY boot using Verbose and plugged into one of the 2 3.1 ports.
       
      does anyone have ANY suggestions?? I’ve been struggling for a week now on this!!
       
      thanks in advance

      Buongiorno a tutti,
      E la prima volta che scrivo su questo forum, spero di non sbagliare nulla!
      Scrivo qua sperando che qualcuno di voi possa darmi una grossa mano, perchè ho letto di tutto, visto qualsiasi video possibile, ma non riesco proprio ad uscirne fuori.
      Ci avevo già provato 3 anni fa, ma ero riuscito solo su un notebook Sony, sul fisso non ero riuscito a fare nulla. Dicevano che c'erano problemi con i driver della serie Skylake, così ho voluto riprovare ora a distanza di anni.
      Premetto che non sono un informatico, non ho conoscenze particolari. Sono semplicemente un ragazzo che si informa, legge tutorial ed esegue, quindi chissà che la soluzione non sia in realtà una banale sciocchezza.
       
      Dunque, il problema consiste nel fatto che, in circa 8 ore di prove, non sia ancora riuscito ad andare oltre il caricamento del logo, dopo aver selezionato la chiavetta da clover.
      Sto cercando di installare High Sierra, ho provato con una chiavetta con un programma che non ho capito bene perchè, ma non posso scriverlo qui, e una con Clover Configurator (che tra l'altro, nella schermata boot mi da un'interfaccia diversa da quella che ho visto nel tutorial, o anche solo 3 anni prima), ma il problema è sempre lo stesso: dopo circa metà caricamento, o mi esce il simbolo di divieto, o si riavvia il computer, riportandomi nel boot di clover.
      Ho provato un po' di flags, come -v, -x, -s, -f, nv_disable=1 (tra l'altro, per evitare problemi al principio, ho impostato la scheda video di intel come primaria), cpus=1, dart=0, Slide=0, insomma, qualsiasi cosa leggessi in giro che avesse portato esiti positivi, la provavo
      Ho provato su porte sub 3.0, 2.0 e le 2.0 dietro al pc.
      Penso sia irrilevante, ma nel caso, sto usando una chiavetta da 32 gb.

      Nella firma dovrebbero esserci tutte le specifiche del mio PC, non so se debba postare altro. Nel caso scusatemi, ditemi pure cosa manca che la aggiorno.
      Spero davvero che qualcuno di voi possa aiutarmi. Ho un MacBook Air (High Sierra l'ho scaricato da qui) e ho scoperto quanto sia più affidabile usare Final Cut rispetto a quel bug chiamato Premiére Pro che ho usato per anni, e vorrei poterlo usare anche sul fisso, senza dover acquistare un iMac. Ho letto in giro che con Mojave non è supportata l'accelerazione grafica, per questo vorrei installare High Sierra.

      Grazie mille a chiunque vorrà aiutarmi!
