Hi, I don't know whether this is somewhat off-topic, if so, feel free to contact me and delete the post.

 

As for XCPM for unsupported CPUs patches of 10.13, please try this one:

 

1) Patch for _cpuid_set_info:

The disassembled code looks like this: (From DP1)

ffffff80003a1326	8a 05 21 5d 75 00 	movb	0x755d21(%rip), %al
ffffff80003a132c	04 72 	addb	$0x72, %al
ffffff80003a132e	3c d0 	cmpb	$-0x30, %al
ffffff80003a1330	77 50 	ja	0xffffff80003a1382

Alright, so that add is what we want to patch, and it's only needed for Broadwell-E CPUs, the patch will be:

72 3c d0 77 50 0f b6 c0
to
6a 3c d0 77 50 0f b6 c0

2) Patch for _xcpm_bootstrap:

The disassembled code looks like this:

ffffff80003d08c3	89 d8 	movl	%ebx, %eax
ffffff80003d08c5	04 c4 	addb	$-0x3c, %al
ffffff80003d08c7	3c 22 	cmpb	$0x22, %al
ffffff80003d08c9	77 22 	ja	0xffffff80003d08ed

And the patch will be:

89 d8 04 c4 3c 22 77 22
to
89 d8 04 xx 3c 22 77 22

Note: The xx is your exact platform CPUID, for example, the default one is 0x3C and I want it to be Ivy Bridge which is 0x3A, and the desired patch is:

89 d8 04 c4 3c 22 77 22
to
89 d8 04 c6 3c 22 77 22

3) Instant reboot fix

Look at these ones:

ffffff80003d107e	48 8d 3d 9b e1 65 00 	leaq	_xcpm_pkg_scope_msrs(%rip), %rdi
ffffff80003d1085	be 07 00 00 00 	movl	$0x7, %esi
ffffff80003d108a	31 d2 	xorl	%edx, %edx
ffffff80003d108c	e8 8f fc ff ff 	callq	0xffffff80003d0d20
ffffff80003d1091	83 fb 00 	cmpl	$0x0, %ebx
ffffff80003d1094	74 05 	je	0xffffff80003d109b
ffffff80003d1096	45 20 e5 	andb	%r12b, %r13b
ffffff80003d1099	74 13 	je	0xffffff80003d10ae
ffffff80003d109b	48 8d 3d ce e2 65 00 	leaq	_xcpm_core_scope_msrs(%rip), %rdi
ffffff80003d10a2	be 03 00 00 00 	movl	$0x3, %esi
ffffff80003d10a7	31 d2 	xorl	%edx, %edx
ffffff80003d10a9	e8 72 fc ff ff 	callq	0xffffff80003d0d20
ffffff80003d10ae	48 8d 3d 4b e3 65 00 	leaq	_xcpm_SMT_scope_msrs(%rip), %rdi
ffffff80003d10b5	be 0b 00 00 00 	movl	$0xb, %esi
ffffff80003d10ba	31 d2 	xorl	%edx, %edx
ffffff80003d10bc	e8 5f fc ff ff 	callq	0xffffff80003d0d20

Alright, so the patches will be:

# _xcpm_SMT_scope_msrs
be 0b 00 00 00 5d e9 08 00 00 00 -> be 0b 00 00 00 5d c3 90 90 90 90
and
be 0b 00 00 00 31 d2 e8 5f fc ff ff -> be 0b 00 00 00 31 d2 90 90 90 90 90

# _xcpm_core_scope_msrs
be 03 00 00 00 31 d2 e8 72 fc ff ff -> be 03 00 00 00 31 d2 90 90 90 90 90

# _xcpm_pkg_scope_msrs
be 07 00 00 00 31 d2 e8 8f fc ff ff -> be 07 00 00 00 31 d2 90 90 90 90 90

And if you want to disable the calls/jumps entirely, you should ret this offset:

ffffff80003d0d20	55 	pushq	%rbp  // Change this '55' to 'c3'

The patch is:

BE 0B 00 00 00 5D E9 08 00 00 00 0F 1F 84 00 00 00 00 00 55 48 89 E5 41 57 -> BE 0B 00 00 00 5D E9 08 00 00 00 0F 1F 84 00 00 00 00 00 C3 48 89 E5 41 57

4) Performance fix

89 D8 C1 E0 08 48 63 D0 -> B8 00 FF 00 00 48 63 D0 

5) AVX stuffs (Only for Pentium and Celeron users)

B9 A0 01 00 00 0F 32 -> B9 A0 01 00 00 31 C0 

All credits go to Pike R. Alpha, okrasit, vit9696 and other generous guys.

 

EDIT @ 25/07/17: Removed redundant bytes for 10.13 DP4 compatibility

EDIT @ 17/07/17: Added more patches and credit information

EDIT @ 22/06/17: Removed redundant bytes for 10.13 DP2 compatibility

Were do I apply these patches exactly? I got 10.12.6 running with a xcpm bootstrap kernel patch, but can't get to the 10.13 installer, until I stumbled upon this. someone guide me please.

Hi. Post your working patches for 10.12.6 here. I may make the new one for you. :)

Now I am testing HFS+J install

Edit ***

Works as it should be

Agreed with U @chris1111, done with clean install 10.13 DP5 (17A330h) on HFS+ using MBP10,1 SMBios and Clover r4149...  :)

@SavageUS: yeah, for Battery Indicator it still disappears as same as prev. Beta.

 

#EDIT: I just realized that now, ATM is no longer showing triple CPUs on my mach.. LoL  :hysterical:

Interesting workaround for 10.13 DP5 system SSD with HFS+

 

1.) Clone the 10.13 DP4 system SSD with CCC to a HFS+ SDD.
2.) Format 10.13 DP4 system SSD to HFS+
3.) Restore the 10.13 DP4 HFS+ system SSD Clone to the 10.13 DP4 HFS+ system SSD with CCC
4.) The 10.13 DP4 HFS+ system SSD will boot flawless, and has now the old HFS+ file system
5.) Update to DP5: file system will remain in HFS+

 

Conclusions:

 

1.) Update to DP5 seems not to force the user to use the APS file system if the DP4 file system SSD is HFS+

2.) The DP4/DP5 HFS+ workaround above should also directly work for DP5

A little update:

 

I added my device ID (14e4,43a0) to AirPortBrcm4360.kext's info.plist, 

 

Used this patch:

BCM4352-Airport-Extreme, (credit skvo)
com.apple.driver.AirPort.Brcm4360
6b100000 750d
6b100000 9090

From your post and now my wifi-card is recognized As AirPort Extreme and Handoff is working (so no need to replace kexts anymore)  :yes:

"/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall" --applicationpath "/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra Beta.app" --converttoapfs YES/NO --volume /Volumes/YOUR_VOLUME/ --rebootdelay 30 --nointeraction

It'll reboot automatically. Reboot back in Sierra, replace AppleAHCIPort and reboot into your High Sierra volume to start the installation.

If the volume does not show up in Clover, make a custom boot entry for it. Pointing to the Volume UUID is enough.

@cyberdevs ,high sierra 13 can be installed on ssd with apfs?

I haven't tested it yet on SSD. I just tested the new release on a HDDs. I had to remove the SSD disk from my test rig so I only have HDDs for now but I tested HFS and APFS on my HDD and it worked. I believe APFS on a SSD disk should be working just fine.

I had a problem for installing on my laptop

Fixed by changing my SMbios to the latest updates for DP5

"Bios Release Date" -> 27/07/17 or 07/27/2017

And "Bios Version"

      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.
