Thanks will try. The exact model is Envy j-070ca. Been using MacbookPro11,1 SMBIOS for awhile for best results.

Edit: Unfortunately adding your config.plist to my EFI/Clover did not fix the issue about not being able to upgrade because of the firmware. I am currently trying to upgrade from 10.12.5. In case it helps here is exactly what happens as I posted on the high Sierra installation forum

 

- After files copy from the USB installer the computer will reboot

- Clover shows the install partition which I select

- After everything loads, the installer says "Installing 35 minutes remaining" 

- Within a few seconds it will go back and forth between 35 minutes and 34 minutes remaining

- After a few more seconds the installer says "calculating time remaining" for which the computer just reboots

 

If I run the "install from" partition to try again, the above happens the same except after "calculating time remaining" I get the error that macOS could not be installed "An error occurred while verifying firmware".

 

My specs are the following with my Envy 17 j-070ca

 

- Intel i7 4700MQ

- Intel 4600 0416 Graphics (QE/CI achieved from FakePCI)

- IDT 92HDB1XX audio

 

Hope this is enough details. Thanks for looking into it.

The details are great, you have lots of patches in your config.plist, so I disabled all of the patches in this file. just for the test.

 

Let's test it and see how it goes.

I also changed the SMBIOS settings

Is there anyway to format disk as APFS in installer and the continue the installation. I cannot see apfs drive after first part of installation on my clover. I have apfs.efi on my driver64uefi folder on clover but disk formatted as apfs won’t show in clover boot menu. I read this topic but I cannot find any guide related to this.

 

For my laptop, it was necessary for me to put the apfs.efi driver in Clover/drivers64, not drivers64UEFI.

It's restart just as the loading stage is finishing. Can't see any signs of problem with verbose boot (too fast)

 

I had this problem for a while too.  To get past it, I would boot into single-user mode (-s) and run fsck and mount (as instructed in single-user mode) and then type "exit" (without the quotes) and it would boot up for me.  I think my problems stopped when I enabled trim for my SSD.  Not sure why that made such a difference.

OK so it still failed with the same error but this time the error came up without the computer rebooting the second time. Also I was getting ACPI errors from the patches that were disabled.

 

For my laptop, it was necessary for me to put the apfs.efi driver in Clover/drivers64, not drivers64UEFI. 

And by doing that, it solved the Firmware issues while installing? I only have drivers64UEFI as during Clover setup I installed Clover on UEFI only.

Someone had success with booting HighSierra with nvidia Kepler?

Yes, I have a GTX 770 (IGPU disabled) and don't have any issues with it.

How did you get yours working on the Envy laptop? I keep getting stuck on the unable to verify firmware and I changed the SMBIOS numbers that was suggested a few pages back.

 

Man, if I knew how it got it to work, I'd have written a tutorial on it.  It was really a fluke.  However, I did determine that my problem, like yours was SMBIOS related.  I changed my SMBIOS version from MBP9,2 to MBP9,1 and used the May 1, 2017 date. (I entered it as 01/05/17.)  I also downloaded what I think was a modified version of Clover 4084 from here:  http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/284656-clover-general-discussion/?p=2438129. Thanks Needy.  (I only used the boot64.efi and clover64.efi files.  I did not use the entire Clover directory with all the files and folders in it.). However, it did install and it installed with apfs format.

Don't know why my gtx660 which worked natively for so long, doesn't work now with Apple or nvidia web drivers.

Have you tried to boot with nv_disable=1 ? What smbios settings do you have?

Well you can enable all the patches and try again if you didn't get the Firmware Verification error. I think the SMBIOS information is correct, there was an error in the BIOS Release Date which I fixed it in the latest config I posted. I also changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro11,4.

 

Try it and let me know.

Not exactly, it's a hacked installer of 10.12.5 Nvidia web driver. I downloaded and installed and everything works properly, video acceleration ok and I have all the resolutions.

My hardware is rather old (see my signature) and I'm using an old Clover version as well (vers 3561), my everyday system is still Mavericks 10.9.5 but that Clover version can boot High Sierra as well.

You are the man! I want to thank you and @cyberdevs as I now got it to install. I used the MacBookPro11,4 that @cyberdevs provided with the date and file that you suggested. So far I have QE/CI, audio, WiFi so not bad for a beta.

Hi,

 

Because there's no OSBundleRequired entry inside AirPortBrcmNIC-MFG, and thus it won't be loaded. Also, its funny IOProbeScore. ;) I guess this is still a work in progress from Apple.

As for AirPortBrcmNIC. Yes, indeed. There's still a function to check board-id (See __ZN15AirPort_BrcmNIC12checkBoardIdEPKc: ), we can always let it return true and the board-id check is gone. It's unfortunate that Clover doesn't support symbol patching, so making a new Lilu plugin that does so can be a better idea. :)

      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?

      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.  Edit: Recommend 16GB or larger for macOS Catalina 10.16 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 10.14.6_18G103
      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.
