:-)

you have to instal clover in your UEFI boot hd (check if it is in apfs or not) with basic option and the you can overwrite EFI created with your working USB EFI one

ps

it is a good Idea to put in your signature your hardware so people could advice you better

:-)

 

Wow, i used a different usb port and i am in the installer now! Let's hope i don't screw this one up

Thanks!

 

 

Installation succesfull!

Do i need to do the same things i did to my usb drive (install clover, clover configurator, copy kext, drivers64UEFI etc) on my SSD where Mac OS is installed on?

Thnx, i installed Clover on the SSD, now i am going to copy all the files from my usb stick. I hope that doesn't make it crash. After that i can remove my usb stick and try to boot in Mac OS without the USB?

 

And after that i can reinstall my M.2 SSD with windows? 

Or is another sequence better?

 

Thanks for your help

Explain better

have you one disk only for OSX and Windows (not good idea because it is more difficult to configure)

Please add a signature so people can understand better

I added a signature now,

 

No, i have a Samsung 850 Evo (250gb) for Mac OS, and a M.2 250GB Samsung 960 evo for windows (and a M.2 1TB Samsung 960 evo for data but i don't think that is important)

ok now is more clear

you have also a 1080 ti so you have to also install correct web driver (based on your osx version number)

 

My advice is:
take care of your working usb pen for now

then install on your OSX ssd with this option selected (see image)

then with clover configuration usb Pen partition and copy (replace) it on ssd disk

then remove USB pen and try to boot with your ssd disk (remember to check apfs.efi in drivers64uefi if you have converted your disk in apfs)

 

you should start in VESA mode (no acceleration basic gfx osx driver )

from there you can start to install NVIDIA WEB Driver and solve future problem :-)

 

 

 


pS IMHO for installation you can also use always 1080 ti like I do...

x299 is newer than x99 but it is working the same for more parts

also

specify  osx version and SMBios you are using


for windows part it quite simple 

you can install on your m2 drive as you would do normally then in your bios in boot option you can configure it like I do

first boot disk UEFI OSX disk, second disk M2 disk with windows

In my case I am using clover boot loader to start and then in boot clover menu I choose which system from which I want to boot

Thanks! that worked!

 

I can now boot into Mac OS without the usb stick. if i need to install kext, do i simply copy them to the SSD/EFI/Clover/Kext/Other folder? or do i need to install software for that?

Kexts which are working in that folder can be only copied inside it

 

Thanks! that worked!

Thanks,

 

It seemed to work, the only problem i have is that it won't boot anymore after NVidia with the GTX 1080 ti.

 

 

The steps i did:

 

  • Install the Web drivers. Reboot without making them the default.
  • Edit config.plist and activate the NVIDIA Web drivers.
  • Use the NVIDIA Preference Pane to use the NVIDIA drivers.
  • Reboot.

 

The error i get:

 

fs_get_inode_with_hint:7825: failed to load inode 699665 ret 22

there are different chance to solve it and some guide on the air are not correct

which SMBios are you using?

and with which version of osx?

put also here if you can your clover folder after that information


ok

I have asked before but maybe you have not read..before installing webdriver

 

now on clover boot menu press o and then in graphics section disable flag on Nvidia web

if it is not working

always in boot menu press space bar and select nv_diasble =1 option

Copy that file to your USB / System EFI folder under drivers64.

???

you have a installation of windows to see this osx disk or other method to see it?

If so try to mount efi partition with Clover configurator and then put apfs file in driver64uefi

Copy your apfs on a second usb disk formatted with hfs or fat32

Boot to your installer, open terminal.

 

 

diskutil list # Check if you can see your BOOT USB Stick there. Search for the EFI partition on your usb stick. most likely it will be something like diskXs1. Also look out for your transfer USB stick. 

 

 

diskutil mount diskXs1 (your EFI partition you discovered before)

diskutil mount diskXsX (your transfer USB Stick)

 

ls /Volumes/ # this command will show you all mounted drives. You should see there your EFI partition and your transfer disk

 

cp /Volumes/YourTransferStick/apfs.efi /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ # make sure the paths are correct

Thanks UcaUca,

 

I tried this but it still doesn't boot. I am going to try the same thing again but then copy my whole EFI folder over from my USB stick to the SSD, maybe that will work again.

 

Otherwise i'll have to install everything again.

before to reinstall (you should because I read in your old posts you have use some not supported method here to create a bootable usb pen so it should be better create a "vanilla usb installer pen" so you know what is installed in your system)

 

try to boot with -s as bootargs (clover option) and in this way you could delete nvidiawebkext inside your Library/Extension folder

and see if system starts again

If your system was working before webdriverinstallation it means that you have yet inside driver64uefi folder apfs.efi so your error could be other problem related

SMBios you use 18.3 (you said) maybe could need to patch apple device policy and if so you have different way to solve this problem

Newest osx version (ie SA for iMac pro) if you set a ImacPro 1.1 smbios does not need to patch policy after Nvidia web installation, for this reason I have asked many times which version you were installing

 

If you can put some informations it could be simpler to go on! :-)

 

Thanks UcaUca,

@slurpi. 

 

Returning to our earlier convo. 

 

Updated my Bios on Gigabyte Aorus 3 to F8a and installed newest version of Clover. Mac os now correctly sees my RAM speed at 3200MHZ. 

 

Bandwidth on multicore now gone up to 45GB/s from 36GB/s.

 

Geekbench score is pretty much exactly the same as yours and my Cinebench has gone up to 1918 from 1888 which was my previous best.

Here are my answers:

No difference if I boot with -xcpm or without. And no difference in Intel Power Gadget if I use SSDT from ssdtprgen or not. So it seems that xcpm is native for iMacPro. 

 

Here's how 2 runs of Cinebench look like:

(Power at idle is usually 8W, you see 20W there because of the screen shot command)

No difference for me with latest Clover. And Cinebench gives me the same score, around 1920 (twice 1917 and once 1923).

 

 

About NVIDIA WebDrivers:

 

I find the latest Clover still needs the EmuVariableUefi-64.efi. Without this, nvidia web drivers are not used.

 I agree in all you said only about Nvidia web drivers I have some doubt because in my case I have not EmuVariableUefi-64.efi and no RCScript installed (my system does not have native NVRAM in any case) and for me it is working

 

If you does not inject plugintype=1 in other way try if you can to disable ssdt (piker alpha generated) and post again xcpm terminal output

In my case that value stay to 0 also using ImacPro 1.1 smbios

If yours stays to 1..it is a big improvement for direct support of new Hackintosh

 

Ps

then I agree with you that with latest platform and some kind of cpu many and different patches or method produce the same performance and IPG output

Yes, I find this strange too. This is what I tried:

 

1. Using only the NVIDIA Preference Panel to activate the drivers. EmuVariableUefi-64.efi active. No webdrivers selected in config.plist. This works with iMac18,3, but does not work with iMacPro1,1.

 

2. Use NVIDIA Preference Panel to activate the drivers. EmuVariableUefi-64.efi active. webdrivers selected in config.plist. This works with iMac18,3, and with iMacPro1,1.

 

3. Use NVIDIA Preference Panel to activate the drivers. No EmuVariableUefi-64.efi. webdrivers selected in config.plist. This works with iMac18,3, and does not work with iMacPro1,1.

 

4. Same as 3. but select webdrivers during boot, by pressing the space bar. Does not work with iMacPro1,1.

 

So you see only version 2. works for me. Very strange.

 

 

If you does not inject plugintype=1 in other way try if you can to disable ssdt (piker alpha generated) and post again xcpm terminal output

In my case that value stay to 0 also using ImacPro 1.1 smbios

If yours stays to 1..it is a big improvement for direct support of new Hackintosh

 

Ps

then I agree with you that with latest platform and some kind of cpu many and different patches or method produce the same performance and IPG output

plugintype is commented out in my config.plist. I think this means it is disabled. But anyway I tried the 3 combinations:

No SSDT, no -xcpm

Np SSDT, -xcpm

SSDT, -xcpm

and I always got the same answers from your commands.

 

So it seems to me that we have native XPM with iMacPro1,1.

      Hi,

      I'm trying to get a clean install of High Sierra, but didn't manage to get too far... stuck on pre-installer with some errors.

      General flow that i've tried, following relevant guides and some success stories:
      1. Used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to create bootable usb drive.
      2. Tried to use different options, UEFI boot mode, Legacy boot mode, with and without Clover configuration...

      In legacy mode it restarts after last error, while in uefi it hangs on kextd stall...

      Screens with error and clover folder/config attached.

      Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 EVO
      CPU: i7 2600K (not overlocked)
      Graphics: Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8GB
      Memory: Kingston 16 GB (2x8gb) 1333MHz
      Storage: SSD Samsung 860 EVO 500GB + Samsung 860 EVO 1TB

      Are this components compatible with High Sierra? From what i see on other threads, people got it working somehow.
      Should i use Legacy boot mode as of advice from [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or is possible to get it working with UEFI? Which one is better?

      How to get rid of "Unsupported CPU for reporter"?

      Any help would be highly appreciated. I'm desperate on wasting time to get it working. 

      Thanks!

      Hi everyone,
      This is my first hackintosh. To be completely honest there's still a lot I'm trying to figure out... And considering I can't even get the installer to begin, seems like there's something I'm just not understanding. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
       
      I've specced the machine based on a multiple successful builds I've seen in various vanilla forums.
      I've set the recommended BIOS, double-checked, but can't even get to an installer screen despite following a Vanilla guide from a popular hackintosh youtuber.
      (Not sure if her links can be mentioned, posted etc... Just playing it safe since this is my 1st post...)
       
       
       
      THE BUILD:

      Gigabyte Z390 Designare
      i9 9900k
      Sapphire Radeon RX580 Pulse - 8 GB
      G.Skill TridentZ 3200 - 64 GB
      Samsung EVO 840 (This is a scrap drive. Planned on using it to get the build running first, then cloning my MP 5,1 HS image after.)
      Other Stuff: Bluetooth, USB, iGPU, etc not important yet... Current goal is just to get the machine booting... I'll focus on WIFI/BT etc after...
       
      I've tried multiple SMBIOS profiles, (listed below). All of them prevent me from even booting the installer with the message below.
      At this point I'm wondering if the issue is HS related, or if there's a step that, although obvious to some, isn't obvious to me and overlooking somehow.
       
      Message returned when attempting to boot the installer. (Pic attached):
       
      This version of Mac OS X is not supported on this platform!
      Reason: Mac-AA95B1DDAB278B95
       
      I also get an error when I click update in Clover saying: Package is incompatible with this version of OS X and may fail to install
      ^ Seems like this indicates I've missed a step or done something wrong?
       
      Here's a list of the complete steps I've taken so far:
       
      Double-checked BIOS settings according to each build.
      Built a vanilla installer based on the video I mentioned above, steps listed below... (I've done this twice now, confirming I followed the steps in the guide.)
       
      Vanilla Installer Steps:
      Wiped and formatted my thumb drive with GUID Partition, HFS Extended (Journaled) Used terminal to create a bootable installer from a 10.13.6 installer I downloaded last june/july. Installed Clover Bootloader onto the Install macOS High Sierra partition of the thumb drive, and ticked: Clover for UEFI booting only, Install Clover into the ESP, VBox HFS-64, APFSDriverLoader-64, AptioMemoryFix-64 (leaving everything else unticked.)  
      Clover Configurator Steps:
      Mounted the Thumb Drive's EFI folder, opened C.C. and "downloaded" Lilu, WhateverGreen, & FakeSMC to the Other folder, & installed sensors. Deleted the default plist and manually created one using the Coffee Lake 'sample plist' from r/Vanilla Hackintosh Desktop Guide. Copy plist to the mounted EFI folder.  
      Open the plist with CC and did the following:
      Confirmed the following flags were set in CC's Boot section - Verbose (-v), dart=0, debug=0x100, & keepsyms=1 Tried 5 different SMBIOS profiles - iMac 18,1 ,  iMac 18,3 ,  iMac 19,1 , iMacPro 1,1 , and MacBookPro 15,1.  
      All result in the same Mac OS X is not supported on this platform message. The one suggestion I've found so far that seemed like it might work was to add the boot argument:
       -no_compat_check
       
      Same results, installer won't start and I get the same message...
       
      Seems like there must be something I've missed or I've done something wrong... I've spent the weekend searching, reading, etc, no luck so far...
       
      A few questions:
       
      I made the installer on my MacBook, not the build I'm trying to hack. Could this be related to the issue?            (I.e. - Does the vanilla method mean you need to create your SMBIOS profile on the actual machine you'll be Hackintoshing?)
       
      Is there a 9900k or Sapphire RX580 compatibility patch needed for 10.13 I haven't seen mentioned in the Mojave builds?  
      Does the Clover update message package is incompatible with this version of OS X and may fail to install indicate something isn't right with my installer setup?  
       
      Please excuse me if anything above isn't clear, I'm brand new to all this and frankly I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around a lot of it!

      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 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, 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 10.14.5_18F132
      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.

      Olá Pessoal ,
       
      Tenho um Sony Vaio VPCEH e instalei o high sierra ,está tudo funcionando beleza o problema é que o boot está muito lento (cerca de 1 minuto e meio) quando uso a kext de bateria ACPIBatteryManager.kext do RehabMan ,quanto removo ela o boot não demora mais que 30s já tentei todas as versão da kext disponível no repositório . Anexei minhas informações e DSDT.

      Hi!

      Could anyone help me installing High Sierra on this system?
      I succesfully installed Sierra before on this system with help of Jake Lo (thanks!!), I just wondering if could High sierra possible to installed on this system?
      Boot stopped at this. I'll attach my Clover folder and a picture from boot.
      UEFI enabled, and for skylake I used IntelGraphicsDVMTfixup and IntelGraphicsFixup kexts. My bios is very limited and does not have any option to change dvmt prealloc or anything else.
      Everything works fine on Sierra.
      Here is my system:

      Working:
      Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with BCM94352z: (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, install them with Kext Utility or another kext installer) (Original WiFi is Qualcomm Atheros, unsupported but BT works) Hand-off with BCM94352z Full Graphics enabled on HD 530, HDMI, VGA. ALC 255 Audio: (Internal Speakers, Internal Microphone, Headphone jack (microphone not tested) with layout-3 fix (you can use AppleHDAPatcher) Ethernet Realtek 8168B/8111B App Store, Messages, FaceTime, Siri, iCloud (native) Integrated webcam (native) 3.0 USB (native) Touchpad and Keyboard: Fn keys are good, the weird thing is the Brightness key. On my keyboard it's Pause Break:Br-up, Fn+F12:Br-dwn. (VoodoPS2Controller.kext) Battery info: Install ACPIBatteryManager.kext with kext utility or other installer. Sleep Mode: In High Sierra sleep mode not worked for me natively. Inject custom EDID to fix the blank screen after wake from sleep
      See here for instruction (thanks black.dragon74 and Jake Lo !!) Please add these 2 patches to ACPI\DSDT\Patches in your config.plist in order to avoid not responding applications after sleep: (added in "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip") HECI to IMEI 48454349 494d4549 EC0 to EC 4543305f 45435f5f Before updating to a new version of High Sierra please update kexts to new versions to avoid kernel panics Note: No need for "IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup.kext" so you should delete it. Not working:
      Original Wi-Fi: Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle. NVIDIA GTX 950M: Optimus not supported. Card Reader: Unsupported For WiFi:
      You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used tp-link Archer T1U (5GHz support), Tp-link have official macOS drivers, you just need to install it (OR)Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kext I wrote above I'll attach my EFI folder for anyone who want to install High Sierra (acer_aspire_v5_591g_55tu_hs.zip).
      *REUPLOADED updated CLOVER folder, attached as "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip" (uploaded to OSXLatitude forum, can't upload here).
       
      I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide:
       
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive):
      1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 
      2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,
      3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
      1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.
      2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.
      3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image.
      4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.
      5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT!
      6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above.
      7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found)
      It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
