Hi guys, i and my friends are trying to get mac os high sierra to work, the first good news is that high sierra can be installed on hfs+, so for now we do not need drivers for the new file system in clover (but it will be helpful if clover developers add support for them), then, we are trying to get it to boot, at first attempt there is always the problem of mac kexts non injecting, so for now we need some fix in clover, we are trying to get the prelinked kernel with fake smc injected, form a mac to get to boot the system, we could do that so fast thanks to the fact that i own a developer account (if you are asking, i use it to distribute apps, not just for beta software), so we will keep you updated

 

EDIT: Thanks to the new clover releases you do not need special stuff to get it to work, you just need the apps.efi driver in the clover's drivers 64 uefi folder to get it to boot on APFS (don't use apfs on a standard hard disk, use it only on ssd), for web drivers on the dp 3 some the web driver from 10.12.6 modified with nvidia driver updater seems to work, and seems to be a native kabylake support too

Manually installing your kext to S/L/E or L/E just to be safe using single user verbose mode, see if it loads

yes we are trying, for now we need just fakemsc to be loaded, so we are building a prelinked kernel on a mac and then we will use that prelinked kernel (with fake smc loaded) to boot from the installer and then we will install the os and put all the kexts we need in the finished installation

If you've got a Windows installation, you could also try using an unlocked VMware Workstation with the partition you want to prepare for native booting assigned to is. Just boot up the VM from the native drive/partition, install all you need and then try to boot natively.

News: we successfully managed to get the installer to boot thanks to a prelinked kernel, created on a Mac, that has already fake smc loaded

So here we are with ITzTravelInTime's prelikedkernel containing FakeSMC.kext. All kext then loaded into L/E and rebuilding caches with KextUtility for Sierra, since Clover's injection is broken right now. Nice team Pietro :D

How do you create the USB Setup?

I only get an 5mb big Installer App

following the command line method that is already used to create a Mac OS Sierra installer, but we replaced the prelinked kernel with a custom one and also we put all the needed kexts in /library/extensions

Can you post the Commandline method(link or tut)

 

1) Get a Pendrive

2) Format and Name it as "NEW"

3) Open Terminal and paste following command! Also give password

 

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/NEW --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ beta.app

since it is too big to be uploaded here:

 

 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/5x1pux8inc2nd45/prelinkedkernel

 

you have to put in /.IABootFiles (that's an invisible folder) in you installation USB key, and then you have to replace it again at the second step of installation, but on the installation volume, but in the same folder, and then at the end you have to replace it in the final installation, in /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels , also this file will be no more necessary when the clover dev team finishes a new version of clover to fix kext injection on the new os


another suggestion is to dual boot it with an existing Mac OS Sierra installation, so you can substitute all the stuff from there

EDIT: This guide is now obsolete, clover v4081 seems to work just fine without using the prelinked kernel

 

Mac OS 10.13 beta install tutorial: 

 

1) use you current working clover for Mac OS Sierra and copy all the kexts you need from the “10.12” folder in /EFI/Clover/kexts to the “others” folder, the format you USB key with guid partition method and with hfs+ file system, call it “USB” without quotes

 

2) open terminal an paste this command: 

 

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.13\ beta.app --noiteraction

 

3) one the commend displayed “done” on the terminal type this command to show invisible files: 

 

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

 

An this other command to restart the finder: killall Finder

 

4) go to the usb installation key with the finder and the go to .IABootFiles folder that is now visible

 

5) replace the prelinkedkernel file you find here with this:

 

https://dl.dropboxus...prelinkedkernel

 

6) your usb is ready, you can copy the clover efi folder in his EFI partition if you want to have a working clover here

 

Now you can boot to the installer, this will take quite long time to boot and to load the installer.

 

DO NOT USE APPLE FILE SYSTEM, IT IS NOT SUPPORTED BY CLOVER RIGTH NOW SO YOU CAN’T BOOT WHEN ALL IS INSTALLED

 

 

When you try to do the second step of the installation process, do not boot form the installation volume yet, you have to use anther working copy of Mac OS to cange the prelinked kernel in .IABootFiles on the target installation volume, so you can boot to it and continue with tìinstallation, when installation is finished, before booting for the first time, you have to replace the prelinked kernel in the finished installation, so go to /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels and replace again the prelinked kernel with the patched one, once this is done you can boot to the finished installation and enjoy your new Mac OS high Sierra

And you're saying that this bypasses firmware checkup ???

 

Several people are able to boot the USB installer without any form of prelinkedkernel manipulation and can proceed with 10.13 installation. Bypassing the Firmware checkup remains the stumbling block on 1st reboot.

no, but this works for now, maybe other option in clover can fix that in the future

I also only get a 5MB Installer, seems to be installing fine to a HD, but I'll have to replace the Kernel with the pre-linked one.

 

I'll let you all know if I'm able to get it to work, my internet connection is very slow, and the installer is downloading High Sierra to the disk as it installs, so it will be 4 or 5 hours before I'll know if this will work.

 I did exactly as you wrote. But I can not get past that part. Any idea what I can do?

You should correct in code;  --noiteraction is false. it must be  --nointeraction

I did not follow this tutorial, but I was stuck at the same point. I went back to language chooser and continued and it worked. Sometimes it takes a little time to load up I guess

 

i'll try this

      Hi, I'm kind of lost when scrolling to Clover Configurator, so I decided to use an EFI from the web and just configure the most basic stuff. But that sadly didn't work, im always getting the attached screen IMG_0054.HEIC (and I don't know whether all the errors are listed, as I can't scroll). 
      Anyways I thought it'd be better to do a custom setup. Can anyone give me some help with what to choose in the settings? Here's my rig:
      i7 8700k
      Asus z370-G (Rog Strix)
      gtx 1060 6gb
      samsung ssd (SATA)
      WD hard drive
       
      Your help would be much appreciated!

      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)

      Opencore is running really really slow on Catalina 10.15.4. So It was running perfectly before I put the ssdt-pnlf for enabling Brightness control. it is running really slow and I verified my config with the sanity checker and its all correct. can someone please help. I am attaching my oc folder.

      Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. Highly recommend using DW1560 wifi card, killer wifi isn't supported. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I take no credit for. I am only responsible for minor changes in files and plists, as well as placement and instructions throughout the guide (as well as the work used from previous projects). Many files and ideas are sourced from @maz-1, @syscl, and my previous guides Granted, many files are similar or the same but there is significantly less of them and/or they are predeployed into spots where they will work just as well, even if not as efficient on bootup. Esentially, this guide is designed to provide a perfectly working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without optimization (because often they can break things). Most patches on the main plist use patches implemented by him as well. ****This guide does work excellently however and will provide you with a near perfect setup for Catalina for your XPS 9350, and is currently my daily driver as I struggled using the referenced users files as well.
      Styling
      This guide is designed to be literally as thorough as possible to appeal to those who really don't understand many of the things in @maz-1's guide or some of the other users as they assume you would already understand this information. It does not cover complex topics like undervolting etc etc Notes
      Never tested USB C except for charging, works great no issues with sleep, wakeup. power management is defaulted as I found with @maz-1 it had issues when on battery switching from AC USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue) Haven't implemented a Bluetooth solution into this yet, as I don't really use it -- will be added ASAP (I believe KILLER WIFI will NOT work, must use one of the supported chipsets (DW1560 is excellent) BIOS Setup
      Set all SATA operation as AHCI Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States Enable UEFI Booting Recommended: Clean Install (Preinstall steps)
      Format a USB (16GB) as Journaled and then proceed to download the latest Catalina Installer Patcher Application Download the latest Catalina installer from within the Patcher App, and select to download a new copy and install to your USB device Download the clover configurator application and mount the EFI of the USB partition, then copy the contents of the Files linked above to the EFI Folder within the EFI partition. ** This is because the App Store installers will often not download a full installer, just an truncated version that downloads the installer files from the interent while installing. Thus, they're not bootable from a USB as they're not complete. That is why you should use this method to make sure the installer is usable for bootable media.
      Install Steps
      Simply use F12 to boot from the USB device, and select the USB Device and then boot from the Install mac OS partition. I have defaulted the installer to boot into verbose mode so I can easily see the errors you guys are seeing if you encounter them. If everything goes well, you can disable these from the boot arguments selection of Clover Configurator Boot into the USB Device, and follow the steps to format your SSD from the installer to install Mac OS Catalina. NOTE THE TRACKPAD WILL NOT FUNCTION AT THIS POINT, BUT THE TOUCHSCREEN WILL. This is caused by the way the installer handles Kext loading but because the touchscreen is being loaded via usb and the keyboard in a different method (which I can explain in detail if you'd like, the install will be possible. Do not be alarmed if the installer takes a long time to boot into, this is expected Once you have done this step, use F12 to select the USB and boot into the installer from the SSD in the options menu. (you cannot boot natively yet as the EFI isn't copied into the SSD yet. Setup computer as normal, touchpad, brightness, etc, should all be functioning at this point. Same with wifi. Then, you should using Clover configurator copy the contents of the USB EFI into the EFI folder of your SSD EFI partition (in the folder) Now we will add this as a native boot option. Setup computer as normal, touchpad, brightness, etc, should all be functioning at this point. Same with wifi. Then, you should using Clover configurator copy the contents of the USB EFI into the EFI folder of your SSD EFI partition (in the folder) Now will we add this as a boot entry so you can always boot from this natively without the USB. Boot Entry Setup
      Boot into the BIOS of the computer, then navigate to the Boot setup (or entries (not sure what it is called exactly, but it will be a list of the options your computer selects to boot) Click add new, and make sure the USB isn't plugged in. Select the only option that is avaiable, and in FS0 navigate to Boot/BOOTx64. Add this as an entry, then select this as whatever priority you would like. Credits

      Using Clover Configuator generate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of documentation, just don't open these apps until you've done this properly. Finished!
