[pre-release] macOS High Sierra

Bit of a story for you, I too was getting stuck at OSInstall.mpkg error while trying to boot from USB but installing from .app worked fine. That was until yesterday when I wiped my laptop completely including EFI partition. So I thought I would have to install Sierra then upgrade to High Sierra, but no I created a fresh USB of HS (createinstallmedia method) and it booted and installed fine to my surprise. I'm not saying wipe your entire hdd but there must be some variables on a pc that already has either macOS and or Windows installed which prevents the HS installer installing from USB correctly.

Usually Windows is the problem, as always.

Just out of curiosity I tried to install macOS High Sierra on an Apple iMac 14,3 with 2.5" HDD to see if the speed problem is hackintosh related or not. Here is the results:

 

macOS High Sierra is "PAINFULLY SLOW" on an Apple iMac 21.5, 14.3" with a mechanical HDD. Either APFS is not meant to be used on a conventional hard disk drive or it has some serous bugs!

I personally think that APFS is developed for SSD drives or flash storages.

 

I tried installing it on mechanical HDDs on my hackintoshes and the result was the same, So beeeeeeeping slow. It performs fine on USB 3.0 flash drive. (I used Sand Disk Ultra Flair 130 MB/s).

The first boot takes forever so I had to force reboot the iMac and after that there is no difference.

 

Just wanted to share my experiment with you guys.

 

Cheers

For anyone that runs into the endless "Begin Gfx firmware load process"... "Hash data from ME never returned", when attempting to use native KBL kexts with Kaby Lake integrated graphics...

You can add kernel flag "-disablegfxfirmware" to config.plist/Boot/Arguments to skip the firmware load code.

Probably same thing with 10.12.6 native KBL kexts, but I only tested on 10.13.dp1.

What do I need to do in order to run "native" kbl kexts? Like, what adjustments from the normal way of doing things with kext(like the ones you've made). I have Kaby Lake 7700HQ on dell xps 15.

Typical setup:

- config.plist/Inject/Intel=true

- config.plist/ig-platform-id set to valid ig-platform-id for KabyLake.  My process was on a desktop, so I used 0x59120000.  Laptops would be different.

- config.plist/Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX=0

- as mentioned, kernel flag -disablegfxfirmware (if you get the problem with firmware load)

- Lilu.kext + IntelGraphicsFixup.kext probably needed (latest versions)

- DVMT-prealloc set to 64mb or larger (or use patch ig-platform-id data as required for 32mb)

- no need for FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext, but if you install it in this scenario... it won't do anything (it doesn't load with native KBL device-id)

 

Extracted ig-platform-id values from AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext....

 

ig-platform-id values KBL 10.13.dp1

Guys what about Thunderbolt in HighSierra are we still need first driver install from inside Windows or is it natively working like NVME drive?

 

 

Guys also there is link it shown SMBios Bios Version lists I can't find it could you please someone share this link for me?

 

Edit: No need I finally I found it.

For me High Sierra runs slow on HFS+j and APFS formatted SSDs (no difference between them when it comes to speed)...

It's even worse when I open up safari... then the complete system feels and acts like when it would if you don't have graphics acceleration. As long as I don't open Safari it's pretty slow, but usable.

 

10.12.6 runs very smooth

On which computer you are running macOS High Sierra? What are the specs?

If you are referring to the Pentium III machine that you've posted a photo of the desktop in the "Show Your Desktop!" thread I must say, WOW man. ;)

 

But seriously I tested macOS High Sierra on 4 different computers two of which were genuine Apple computers one with SSD hard drives and the other one has a mechanical HDD and it was disaster. The other two computers are in my signature with SSD hard drives and with those computers macOS High Sierra works flawlessly except for the 1070 GPU that needs nVidia WeDriver so I just tested macOS High Sierra with the IntelHD 530 and also with the AMD Radeon 7790 it is as smooth as it could be.

Without graphic acceleration the whole experience is clouded and I can say for sure it's a bad experience with any version of a operating system macOS, Windows, Linux etc. But we all already know that don't we :)

 

HFS works fine on both HDD and SSD drives but AFPS only performs ok on SSD hard drives.

As a reference, albeit a low-specs one by today's standard, I run High Sierra perfectly Ok on my 2008 Dell Latitude D630. Its specs are as follows:

* Penryn Core2Duo T9500 CPU (2.5GHz, FSB800, 6Mo L2 cache)

* 4Go DDR2-800

* nVidia Quadro NVS 135M graphics

* Intel 965GM chipset

* ICH8-M I/O controller (SATA-II)

* Intel Series 330 SSD (no Trim enabled or boot slows down)

 

It's an old and obsolete girl but it keeps running fine even on those recent macOS versions.

Well that's really an old gal, which is surprising that performs well with the latest versions of macOS, even older Apple computers from 2008 to 2010 iMacs and MacBook Pros don't play nice with macOS Sierra.

They tend to get slow in the performance

Yeah, pretty awesome huh...?  :lol:

 

No, I have two High Sierra installations on my Dell Optiplex 755 (signature), one is on a hfs partition and one is on a seperate SSD formatted as APFS. They are both slow. I reinstalled High Sierra a couple of times in the past week, and every single install is slow.

 

In a couple of days (hopefully tomorrow) i'll get another Optiplex with a Sandy Bridge i5, we'll see how it runs on that  :)

on my xps 15 10.13 hs apfs is runnin smooth as butter on the internal nvme ssd. I feel like maybe some of you may be gettin bottlenecked, causing hiccups, by the usb on your external hard drive/ssd or by being on a hdd instead of a ssd.

Good luck man! :)

 

I'm thinking about adding a new KabyLake to the family just for the tests and to see how macOS High Sierra will play along with the 7th generation of the Intel CPUs.

 

I also downloaded the macOS Sierra 10.12.5 update for new 2017 iMacs but I didn't have the time to dissect it yet to see what Apple has inside it.

 

here is the link for those whom are interested:

You're right about the getting bottlenecked with the HDDs. All the HDD drives I tested so far were old SATA 3.0 GB/s drives and they are not good enough for benchmarks, I haven't tested the new macOS with a 6 GB/s HDD drive yet but I don't expect a miracle.

FYI, Installed High Sierra on an internal mechanical drive (runs at 5400 rpm :o) and I've noticed the following :

 

- Install is slow on APFS

 

- Boot is slow on APFS

 

- Looks like there's some indexation (Spotlight?) in the background that makes things really slow at first glance but it's getting better and faster after a while. Not as smooth as Sierra but still usable on a daily basis

 

my 2cts…

 

Keep in mind that this a just a DP1 guys ;) !

I had a devil of a time figuring out how to hide my Preboot and Recovery partitions for High Sierra.  All of my APFS partitions (the one I made and the ones made automatically) have virtually the same ID so when I was entering strings to hide, I ended up hiding all of the APFS partitions.  Here's what it looks like in my bootlog.  I have highlighted the portion of the IDs that distinguish one from another.  That is what needs to be entered in Clover to hide those partitions.

 

2:984 0:000 - [15]: Volume: PcieRoot(0x0)\Pci(0x1F,0x2)\Sata(0x0,0x0,0x0)\HD(5,GPT,270EDB00-BC75-4E10-9F05-67A1D73DFAD3,0x198F21C8,0x42C88C0)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,8E801EBC600EC04891DBD317C11D5F54) -- THIS IS PREBOOT

2:984 0:000 - [16]: Volume: PcieRoot(0x0)\Pci(0x1F,0x2)\Sata(0x0,0x0,0x0)\HD(5,GPT,270EDB00-BC75-4E10-9F05-67A1D73DFAD3,0x198F21C8,0x42C88C0)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,DC8B3533327ED232A0792F28E45CD0F0) -- THIS IS HIGH SIERRA OS
2:984 0:000 - [17]: Volume: PcieRoot(0x0)\Pci(0x1F,0x2)\Sata(0x0,0x0,0x0)\HD(5,GPT,270EDB00-BC75-4E10-9F05-67A1D73DFAD3,0x198F21C8,0x42C88C0)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,4A079A1A0C66C8428B2515320AE989C9) -- THIS IS RECOVERY

 

Hopefully, this will save someone some time figuring this out.

This will only works for you as volume UUID are unique to your system.

 

 

 

 

F10 at boot to take screenshoots and bdmesg in terminal to find UUIDs

 

 

 

Quite a bit old but should work the same :).

Of course the exact IDs will be different for each user but the important thing here is that APFS creates 3 partitions with virtually identical IDs except for the last string of numbers.  The point is that those numbers are what need to be added to Clover because any other portion of the ID will hide all 3 partitions.  I guess I wasn't clear enough in my original post.

 

Oh, and you can get your bootlog using Clover Configurator and it will save it to a text file.  In my case, however, I have 19 partitions listed on the 3 hard drives I have on my computer.  Most of those partitions are created automatically and do not need to be listed in Clover.  It's not always easy to identify which partitions are the ones to hide.

Don't use these flags, exclude all strings in config.plist concerning Intel graphics, don't set any ig-platform-id and then the system set graphics properties by default and this works.

As well other good settings is 0x193b0000 for my motherboard.

Thanks man

 

add 0x193b0000 and login to 10.13 beta

Just tried daisy chaining monitors. DP 1.2 still doesn't work. A bit of a shame.

 

On the plus side I plugged in my R9 390x and it worked oob. nothing ticked at all, it's coming up 0x67b01002 with 44 compute units :)

Still needs the helper card or an igpu of course.

Luxmark is coming in way higher than the other computer with the R9 Nano - 28250 vs 20100, whereas the other benchmarks such as CB are slower.  Leading me to believe that Luxmark is using the 7970 helper card to help.

Does your Nvidia Quadro work properly? Can you switch res and  graphics acceleration? If yes how did you achieved it? (My Nvidia Quadro works only safe booting)

Thank you

Everything works perfectly, graphics work OOB. The nVidia specs are injected in DSDT. It's the same DSDT since Snow Leopard, albeit the renaming of EHCx USB controllers to EH0x since El Capitan. Since Sierra, I've just switched from MBP5,1 SMBIOS to MBP7,1 to avoid the "unsupported platform" error message.

There are many models of nVidia Quadro cards. Which is yours? What's your platform?

      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:
                                    
                       -/+:.          ningnan@ningnandeMacBook-Air

      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro. EFI_HZ550.zip
