[pre-release] macOS High Sierra

I was able to boot to the installer using CloverX64-High.efi and apfs.efi in the Clover64UEFI folder.  I had to boot with cpus=1 because the LAPIC patch did not work.  Kext injection did work and I was able to use RehabMan's voodoops2.kext and acpibattery.kext.  I don't think I had bluetooth or wifi.  I couldn't tell.  Either way, I hit a stumbling block and can't seem to get past it.  Anyone else run into this?

Got the same error with Enoch 2883 (-v -f) and MBR installing method, patched kernel as attached.

Some private stuff from latest apple firmware. Also APFS Jump Start driver

https://yadi.sk/d/_JdX6vPU3GeESy

UPD:

Updated APFS Jump Start driver

 

guid: CFFB32F4-C2A8-48BB-A0EB-6C3CCA3FE847

APFS.efi from /usr/standalone isn't designed to run manually, cause dat stuff runs via mechanism inside apple frmw or boot.efi

APFS.ffs.zip

Second try  :P

 

 

img_1020.jpg

 

I format in Mac OS Extend Journalise  this is  Good?

 

Because APFS is available in Disk Utility  :yes:

 

 

same thing Error OSInstall.mpkg  :cry:

How did you get that far in the first place? I'm still stuck at kextd stall AppleACPICPU

 

Edit: I am able to enter the installer now, but "an error occurred while verifying firmware"

If we're not using APFS I'm assuming it should be enough to fake the firmware features string Clover announces to make the installer think that the firmware supports APFS. Just a case of finding out what the correct value is.

You're absolutely right, but it won't solve OSInstall.mpkg error

PS: You can set FirmwareFeatures to ff ff ff ff bits, then validation will passed

OSInstall.mpkg error is related to the bootable media which macOS is loaded from.

 

I just created a bootable USB using disk utility and then copied the "Package" folder manually and I got the same error on my MacBook Air, then I used createinstallmedia and it just booted to the installer with no error.

 

here is the terminal command I used to create the High Sierra bootable USB disk:

 

For the first developers preview:

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ Beta.app —nointeraction

and

 

for the public beta

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra\ Beta.app —nointeraction

Setting FirmwareFeatures to 0xFFFFFFFF didn't pass validation here. I still got the unable to verify firmware error at second stage install. The log shows a different value for "ROM Features returned" but still follows that up with "ROM does not support APFS".

 

I've also replaced the apfs.efi in EFI with the JumpStart one extracted from the MBP91 firmware. Thanks for the GUID, I wasn't able to find the right module last night by searching the firmware in UEFITool.

 

Update: Setting FirmwareFeatures doesn't change the FirmwareFeaturesMask value. Maybe that's the problem. I tried setting it in nvram but Clover replaces it with its default value on reboot.

I've installed macOS High Sierra too. Have the same problem with OSInstall.mpkg appears to be missing. Just restore image from real mac.

Clover by @denskop Clover_r4079_High_Sierra.zip This version don't work on 10.12... Start it from USB drive.  

Intel HD 530 have the same problem as in 10.12.5. But Lilu.kext + IntelGraphicsFixup.kext deals with this :thumbsup_anim:

Used boot arguments for Lilu an Plugins 

-lilubeta -igfxbeta -alcbeta

Graphics is working. So smoooooth with metal2 :P

Audio is working. ALC887 with AppleALC, HDMI - native with ig-platform-id 0x193b0000

Don't work hardware acceleration on HD 530 with Shiki.kext and -shikigva bootarg. Problem is Shiki hangs entire system when open QuickTime or iTunes. Need further research.

So far, all those who posted screenshots of running 10.13 Hackintosh installations used a cloned image off a real Mac. That's of little use to most of us, except to state that it runs on PC platforms. But thanks Vanroiy2012 for stating this most important "detail"...  ;)

Thanks, but I figured it out already. I'm stuck at the OSInstall.mpkg error too. I'm making a manual USB install now. .Let's see how that will go. 

I guess it's because the Packages folder is in InstallESD.dmg, while the installer looks for it in BaseSystem.dmg.

Hi Chris1111,

Just for the temporary solution, you can patch OSInstaller to bypass firmware update and check's, but I'm not sure about 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 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 10.14.5_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.
