That's too bad :(

 

What about the startinstall method? have you tested it yet?

 

 

That just adds the installer files to the HDD correct? Seems that's what Pandora's box does too.

Yeah, I suppose the startinstall method is the first stage of the actual installation of macOS High Sierra where macOS Installer extracts the installation files from the installer app to the target volume. I haven't used Pandora either I'm not sure about that part.

Does the restore BaseSystem method still work with 10.13? Seen a lot of posts using that method with the missing or corrupt OSInstall.mpkg error. 

 

Yes, it still works with some changes - see post#13.  Credit to @crazybirdy for his Disk1mbrInstaller technique :).

 

It can be used as a last resort when your system can't boot with the vanilla pre-linked kernel eg AMD system that requires custom kernel, older systems that have SATA issues and need to replace AppleAHCIPort.kext v329 with v328.  Another advantage is that you can add @crazybirdy's patched OSInstaller to bypass High Sierra's firmware verification routine and MBR checks.

Guys, just a tip, i've a Pentium G3258 (Haswell), and i made the createinstallmedia method, all went fine until i start the usb install, kp after kp. So, if someone have the same issue, just put the FakeSMC.kext on Other folder, DSDT on ACPI / patched folder, use the iMac13,1 Smbios and use WestemereX cpuid on FakeCpuid ( 0206F0 ), doing it i reach the install screen, installed all and now i use the Haswell FakeCpuid ( 0306C0 ) and my MacPro5,1 Smbios as i used before  and all works fine.

I think it's irrelevant, but i've used the flags -xpcm kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0.

Hope it helps.

  • Certain SATA controllers will still have issues with AppleAHCIPort v329 (eg ICH10, 5 series, 7 series, ASMedia 1061) ---> Disks may fail to initialize, not readable or hot plug may fail.  AppleAHCIPort.kext v328 with version bundle 999.1.1 survives upgrade if installed in /L/E, and is loaded in preference to v329

And it's necessary delete the original one inside S/L/E?

 

Thanks

No, you can leave the original in /S/L/E if you install my modded AppleAHCIPort.kext v328 in /L/E. 

 

Since it has a higher bundle version (999.1.1), it will be loaded in preference to the original kext (v329) in /S/L/E, once you update the kext cache :).

createinstallmedia doesn't work on AMD systems :(

How about a little free app named "Boot Buddy"..? it's just another GUI version of createinstallmedia though, but U could always try it first.

I've used it since 10.13 DP1, at least when I was lazy to open Terminal  :rolleyes:

Oh well, I restored Sierra to my system drive.  I will have to continue working on getting High Sierra fully functional before I put it back on my main installation.  The problems?  No brightness adjustment, no sleep, no power off.  All seem to be ACPI-related.  I have my work cut out for me.

For power off issue (and also restart & logoff + Sleep) also happened on my nvidia gf119 as well, till I replaced native NVDAResman.kext with DP1 has. It's little bit strange if also occurred on IntelHD Graphics, but I'm not sure what caused it.

Fix for ICH10 with High Sierra.

 

I made the binary patch for AppleAHCIPort.kext allowing new kext to work correctly  with ICH10 Sata controllers. Here is:

4585F60F 95C289C8 83E0FE66 85C9780F 84D2750B -> 89C883E0 FE6685C9 0F98C141 08CC9090 9090750B 

It can be used with any bootloader who can patch kexts on the fly. Or manually change it in any hex editor or command line.

This is how it looks with bootloader:

And here is the result:

Good luck! ;)

      Ciao Ragazzi, scusate il disturbo.
      Non sono molto pratico, sto provando ad installare Sierra, però ricevo questo problema.
      Sapete aiutarmi ?
      grazie in anticipo

      Can you help me?
      Thanks in advance

    • By Slice
      I successfully installed macOS 10.11.6 and Windows 7 Pro SP1 in UEFI mode on the laptop.
      I know, there are detailed guides here and on osxlatitude.com but I was not agree with them and carefully check and test every step to tune my Mac.
       
      Hardware
      Intel® Core� i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, speedstep works with Clover default settings
      Chipset Intel 7 series, no patches needed
      Video: IntelHD4000 or NVS5200M switchable in BIOS, work in both cases
      LAN; Intel 82579LM, works with IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.2.1
      Audio: IDT 92HD93BXX, works with VoodooHDA 2.9.0.
      SDHC reader O2Micro; works with native AppleSDHC.kext with Clover Arbitrary properties.
      USB3.0 works natively if not disabled in DSDT
      PS2 keyboard and touchpad works with VoodooPS2.
      WiFi: Dell Intel WiFi was replaced by Dell DW1520, Broadcom BCM943224HMS. DeviceID=4353
      LCD Screen 1366x768
      BIOS A12. Initially was A02. Then I flashed A23 and found it is quite bad. The screen is full of artefacts. Flash A12 and all is OK. Not tested other versions.
      For some reason BIOS can switched from Intel to Nvidia by itself so I have to do my solution working independent on this state.
       
      WiFi
      It is not working OOB although it has DeviceID known to Apple. The reason is WhiteList in the driver.
      I set MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 while the WiFi will work on MacBookAir. I make a patch in Clover.
      As well a patch for channels.
      I deleted a kext Brcm4331 because it has the same DeviceID. Let kext Brcm4360 to work alone.
       
      VideoCards
      In Bios we can set Optimus = Enable/Disable
      If Enable then we have two videocards Intel first and Nvidia second. In this case additional SSDT-3.aml will switch off Nvidia.
      If Disable then we have only Nvidia card. It will work if Board-ID taken from iMac13,2.
      But here there is contradiction with WiFi with required Board-ID from MacBookAir.
      So I take MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 which is most close by CPU IvyBridge.
      Set BoardID like iMac13,2 to make Nvidia working.
      Patch BoardID in Brcm4360 to make WiFi working.
      Now I have
      Inject->
      ->Intel=YES
      ->Nvidia=YES
      and SSDT-3.aml in ACPI\patched folder. This SSDT will switch off Nvidia if Intel card ON.
      For Intel graphics there is a patch against 8 apples at start.
       
      Brightness
      No special kexts.
      The brightness controlled by keys F1,F2 and slider in Control Panel in both case Intel or Nvidia. Details here  #72 
       
      DSDT and SSDT
      This is very long story and finally I have working sleep in both cases Intel or Nvidia.
       
      Sensors
      I use my HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5.0.
      I got monitoring:
      CPU temperature
      GPU temperature
      GPU main frequency
      GPU shader frequency
      Battery state % full, time to charged or time to empty.
      Battery voltage dinamically.
      Battery amperage dynamically. I can see it changes on heavy games.
      HDD temperature.

       
      Audio
      I like VoodooHDA and have no problems with it.
      The sound is clear, loud, and switchable between internal speaker and headphone.
      Mic is working.
       
      Bluetooth
      Just tested with BTFirmwareUpdate.kext and it works. I not needed it so switched off by wireless switch at right side.
       
      Keyboard, Touchpad and Touchstick

      My config, ACPI files and kexts are in attachment.

      EDITED:
      Better DSDT in the post #6.
      Sleep working even when AC inserted.
       
      EDITED 06.12.2018
      Now I have HighSierra and this is my EFI folder

      macOS Mojave 10.14.3 beta (18D21c)
    • By fusion71au
      Clover r4799 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4799 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4799-X64 by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
