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! ;)

      I have been running macOS Mojave on my system for 3 months and everything was working pretty well.  After taking an update for clover, my entire system got wrecked, and I cannot even boot to an installation environment anymore (which I really need to do since I am starting back at square one).  I still have the old EFI folder backed up, but I know it'll only be a matter of time before Apple introduces an update that requires me to update Clover in order to work correctly.  I have tried all the available memory fixes, but none of them seem to work.  I was previously using the original osxaptiofix; so, I gave v2, and v3 a try, but to no success.  I read somewhere on the main discussion board for clover that AptioMemoryFix was no longer going to be supported and I therefor decided to skip over it (not to mention it isn't even available in newer clover installation packages).
       
      System specs:
      Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 M GAMING
      CPU Intel core i5 9600k @ stock 3.7GHz
      RAM 32GB DDR4 2667MHz
      GPU AMD Radeon RX 580 with 8GB of GDDR5
      SSD Intel 660p 512GB NVME
      NIC: Intel i210 10/100/1000 as it is natively supported in macOS
       
      I have been using the iMac 19,1 SMBIOs as I built this machine to match it as close as humanly possible.  As for my UEFI settings, I did the usual:
      Disabled Windows specific features and secure boot
      Enabled XHCI hand off
      Enabled Above 4G decoding
      Disabled onboard NIC since it is made irrelevant by my intel i210
       
      --INJECT KEXTS--
      FakeSMC
      Lilu
      WhateverGreen
      AppleALC
      USBInjectAll -- WITH PATCHED SSDT in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched
      Below are images of the errors I am receiving when trying to boot the macOS Mojave installer.
       
      with original osxaptiomemoryfix

       
      osxaptiofixv2

       
      osxaptiofixv3

       
      Anyway, if somebody can help me figure out what's going on, that'd be greatly appreciated.  My ultimate goal is to get an install with minimal clover patches as to be better prepared when the winds of change from Apple come roaring.
       
      p.s: I have also attached a copy of my EFI folder

      Clover r4989 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4989 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4989-X64.iso 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.

      Hello,
       
      I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system.
       
      For installation I used this Thread.
       
      I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore.
       
      Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080.
       
      My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB)
      Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use  Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version?
       
      Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ?
       
      About some hints where to start I would be thankful.
       
      regards
