macOS High Sierra - Final Release is out! (17A365)

446 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just updated to High Sierra successfully (from Appstore).. Spent almost all day trying to figure things out..

 

MSI Z170-A

I7-6700K

Nvidia GTX 1080

 

Got OSInstall issue.. Updated Clover.. Still happened.. Ran Installer again from /Applications so that the install starts over instead of just from second phase.

Got the encountered an error verifying firmware.. Solved it by adding a Firmware Feature and Mask that matches my BoardID (needed it even with latest clover).

Got the kext[0] stall ACPICPU.. Solved it by moving FakeSMC and all kexts from "10.12" folder to "Other".

Got graphics stuttering no hardware acceleration.. Updated Nvidia Web Drivers.

Got the black screen when booting Nvidia GTX 1080.. Solved it by installing the latest Lilu.kext and NvidiaGraphicsEnabler.kext.

USB ports didn't glitching sometimes.. Downloaded RehabMan USBInjectAll source code and compiled it with Xcode 9 and 10.13 SDK.

Audio always worked with patched AppleALC (Same .kext from Sierra works on High Sierra for me)..

 

 

Only thing is that I wish I didn't have to use Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsEnabler.. It's annoying to have to update it every time a new OS update comes out (sometimes I forget and can't see anything on screen). Somehow GPU works out of the box with an older SMBIOS board.. but with new 5K iMac17,1 nope.. requires these kexts.

It's still possible to create a HFS+ bootable media in a APFS system?

 

Well, in my first successfully installation I've formatted a single partition (from a external HD) from HFS+ to APFS, and then, when i tried do roll back it's no more available — partition is gone :w00t: , only visible on APFS system. So, appears that once you have a drive/partition with HFS+ u can continue with this one, but once u change it to APFS there's no way to get HFS+ back on a APFS system without formatting entire disk.

 

 

Problem now is, that apparently my system isn't allowrd to pass the Firmware check even with using current SMBIOS Settings that i posted earlyer.

 

Just tried it again. It don't let me pass the firmware check. I tried to install it on a different HDD.

I can do everything i want and change everything i want in the SMBIOS Settings, it just won't let me pass it.

I've tried the default value posted here and no way to pass the firmware check. But, Clover Configurator has automatically added this value on a smbios that I need to create and 'Voilà' – system installed and running.

 

 

when download High Sierra it downloads just 15 MB and after I start the installer it gets the other 4 GB part..

 

This also happened to me and I've to do a fresh install of El Cap and download High Sierra again – now with 5.19gb

There might be an easier way to do that. Check out this post. :) 

 

Just something to keep in mind next time you encounter this issue.

I had 3 problems that kept me from running High Sierra on my main macOS partition:  1. No working sleep; 2. No working power off; and 3 No working brightness control.  I haven't a clue what actually was preventing sleep or poweer off but I do have a reminder to those who have been in the OSx86 community for a long time like me.

 

When I couldn't figure out what was the problem, I went back to basics.  I threw out my custom DSDT that I had spend years customizing and started fresh with my native DSDT.  I added only those patches I knew I needed and did not attempt to patch those things I knew Clover now did by default, such as Intel GFX0 patches.  I basically added only those patches for USB, IGPU, Battery, Brightness keys, and Syntax errors necessary to get my native DSDT to compile and do the things I knew I needed it to do that it couldn't do without patches.  That worked.

 

Although I don't know what was preventing sleep or powering off, the problem was resolved.  Now, I just need to figure out why RehabMan's brightness injector kext, along with his SSDT and kext patch don't work for me.  Hopefully, reading his post on that other forum for the umpteenth time will make re realize either what I am doing wrong or what is different about my system than the one for which he designed the brightness adjustment fix.  Either way, using his injector kext, SSDT and kext patch does not work. Any ideas?

P.S. - I celebrated my fixes of sleep and power off with a bottle of 15.9% bottle of red wine.  Forgive the typos.  W00t, w00t!

Did you add the plnf ssdt to the sorted order list in config.plist?

I did.  I put the SSDT-PNLF.aml in second position behind a native ssdt that I had to change from GFX0 to IGPU.  I get the slider in SysPrefs-Display but it doesn't change the brightness when I move the slider button.  (I'm assuming that you need to put the full name of the ssdt in sort order (e.g., SSDT-PNLF.aml) but that you don't need to put in the path.)

Yes that's correct. And have you got AppleBacklightInjector.kext in S/L/E?AppleBacklightInjector.zip

I had the injector kext in L/E.  I tried the one you posted (thank you very much) in S/L/E.  No change.  I still have the slider but it doesn't adjust the brightness of the screen.

My High Sierra installation suddenly stopped working this morning. I get only the stop sign, verbose mode shows this:

 

post-626651-0-71459900-1507836001_thumb.jpeg

 

followed by “Still waiting for root device”.

 

It doesn’t matter how I try to boot, from SSD or USB... any suggestions?

Hi @mnfesq

For me the Brightness Slider.app from App store made the exact same work as the slider in system preferences

I have not seen diferances

check ACPI bios settings.

 

Anything in particular? I’ve checked and rechecked multiple times, I cannot find anything wrong. I did go into UEFI settings last night, but I don’t remember changing anything related to ACPI. And I successfully booted after that... weird.

I have that app too.  The thing is, even though I have a slider and I can move the slider button, doing so does not change screen brightness.  That's the problem.  I'm beginning to wonder if, for some reason, the patched AppleBacklight.kext is not loading properly or if the patch is not working for me.

Ha ok  ;)

The Brightness Slider.app works for me but not the one from the preference System

I have installed Sierra 10.12.3 today to see the diferance because in 10.12.3 it works

I saw that there was no difference

Thanks for posting it.  It looks pretty similar to mine but mine is an Ivy Bridge (old, like me.). I'll have to try some of your patches/kexts but I don't think they will make any difference.  I'm wondering if I am missing some OEM SSDT that defines BCL, BCM, etc. that I haven't found and patched to replace GFX0 to IGPU.  There must be something about my setup that keeps it from working when I follow the instructions for the tutorial to the letter.  That was why I started with a new DSDT.  Maybe I should try extracting my OEM ACPI files from scratch and start over with everything fresh.  Tomorrow is another day, and with another day, new things to try out.

If you want to try you can create a ssdt to avoid using those kext

rx 580 works fine on my rig..it is time to use amd graphics..

I always was a fan of AMD graphics but the black screen issue forced me to switch to nVidia (it was before I knew that the WhateverGreen kext is being developed); But know that the AMD GPUs are back in the game it seems logical to switch back to them.

disable csm on bios or delete csm.efi from clover can solve black screen problems....

Hm could be my cpu/motherboard then. What clover version?

4233. And it's not just Clover, it's about DSDT and SSDT and some kernel patches. Check EFI from my page about ASRock x99m Extreme 4

      Update: On October 24, 2020, using clover to solve the macOS11 beta10 boot problem, you can now enjoy macOS11beta10, and the compatibility of subsequent versions is not guaranteed.
      HIDPI uses a modified version. You can directly execute the hidpi script to get a better experience. If you lose the repair, it is not within the scope of my support.
      Support upgrades without destroying the integrity of the original image.
      There seems to be a problem with the shortcut keys. If you can help solve it, thank you for your contribution.
       
      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.
