[pre-release] macOS High Sierra

3,845 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I removed all the ACPI files because they are for my computers. Each computer needs it own DSDT and SSDT tables or you can use the same DSDT.aml file from another user which has same mobo as you do.

 

I have a Z170X-Gaming 5 mobo and you have Gigabyte z170-D3H so they are different.


My IGFX HD530 works like a charm in 10.13 with Lilu + IntelGraphicsFixup. 

Which boot flags you are using?

Update:

 

I had to remove the 1070 GPU and without macOS High Sierra boots completely and it's working OK.

 

If I put the nVidia GPU it won't boot. so knowing that HD530 works on my rig is good enough for me :D

 

So I guess I'll wait for nVidiaWebDriver to be released to test it further more, and for the time being I'll use my older pc for testing 10.13

 

Over and Out :D

Hi man!

 

Thanks for the great work you doing I'm a fan :D and making High Sierra Hackintosh possible with clover 4084;)

 

As a matter of fact I'm aware of the sleep issues with HD530 in macOS Sierra and High Sierra.

 

I didn't test the sleep on High Sierra because my SkyLake computer is my main pc for day to day use.

I will do more test later an keep you posted.

 

Cheers

After reading thoroughly all of this... I'm wondering if worth trying  :(

It completely depends on what do you want to do.

 

If you want to test the new macOS and if you can get all the parts of the system to work, then yes it's worth it

If you can't have a fully functional computer using macOS High Sierra, then no it's not worth the hassle.

 

In general, DP versions and public betas are more for developers and testers whom test the new macOS and find/report the bugs so they can be fixed in the release version.

 

IMHO if you want a stable system for day to day work, stay tuned at least until the first beta comes out and then decide to upgrade to High Sierra, but if can live without it only wait and in four to five months the release version will be out.

Of course yes! If your signature is correct, I think you won't have many problems with setting your first machine up  ^_^

Maybe you'll see an ACPI error, because you have a Haswell CPU, but you just have to drop MATS tables in the clover settings (several times mentioned in the thread). 

 

And like cyberdevs already mentioned: Keep in mind what you want to do with it.

Thanks, you got it exactly  ;) as I would like to be helpful, having an "easy" rig, but actually I have little time to mess w/ fine tuning  :(, so couldn't deep into what could be really needed to test...  :(

Thank you for your suggestions, too (I was writing while you typed)  :).

 

Definitely worth trying as soon as I have some free time  :yes:.

Great discovery! Please announce me if you'll have a solution in the meantime. Thanks.

For now, modifying any of the previously mentioned strings in the ACPI table header (Signature, OemId, OemTableId, AslCompilerId) to remove invalid characters (chars > 0x7F) should allow you to boot. I'm still looking into patching AppleACPIPlatform to prevent the panic from happening.

@TheRaceMaster, patching that would be a majorrrr help. Thank you for taking on that task. I use to have them panics and resorted to dropping tables to fix it, but it was effin hell to try to find a solution. I thought it wasn't possible to even install on a kaby lake notebook. I was wrong

Hello @Muntashir; how about this one? Here.

I couldn't remember if I tried it (I tried lots of methods!), so tried again. It didn't worked. It gave me the same kernel panic that I've stated earlier.

I don't even found a single explanation regarding the kernel panic.

I have XPS 15 9560 Kaby Lake Notebook. My graphics are Intel HD 630. FakeIntel: 0x19168086 and ig-platform-id: 0x19160000 along with IntelInject = True. This worked for me in Sierra. When I use the same configuration in High Sierra I get a black screen once I reach the login screen. The graphic kexts that i'm using are FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext, Intelgraphicsfixup.kext, lulu.kext, and CoreDisplayFixup along with the "-" flags. Am i missing a kext or do i need to reduce my kexts? I don't know why it is not working and I'm getting the black screen at login. Any help is welcomed and appreciated.

Not Love, but a little bit head ache here LoL  :lol: AppleAPFSContainer is interesting, it has own VM, Recovery, and Preboot partition needs update while installing new kext on LE or SLE I guess... about my EFI on GPT I'm not sure, why it plays "Hide & Seek", FYi it just damaged after installing 10.13 then I reformat it again. Funny.

My X99 needs less patches that 's for sure. Not to mention the nvme and native support for the nano.

But really, after owning it for 3 years I'm hanging out for a new machine and liking the look of the next Apple X299 mobo and vega GPU  :thumbsup_anim:

FWIW on my haswell laptop I never had to drop MATS but that could be because I drop oem due to using custom dsdt and ssdt's from sierra.

      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, 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 10.14.4_18E226
      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.

      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 MBR-EasyInstallerMaker 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 Q9. 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.
