:-)

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

Thank you, i found my apfs.efi in my installer, but i need to reinstall MacOS?

I can't update the apfs.efi when i can't boot into mac right?

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.

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:

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.

      I'm trying to upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra. My Sierra is working and booting great with the latest Clover 5.0 r5115, but when trying to upgrade to High Sierra, any time the computer reboots into the installer, it gets stuck at the line "Start ReadKernelCache". The screenshot is attached. I've tried the following troubleshooting steps that I've read in other similar posts, none of which worked. It always remains stuck at that line:
       
      Boot with UseKernelCache=No and/or -x and or -f Temporarily remove discrete graphics card and try to install with integrated graphics Add MATS to the Drop Tables list in Clover Configurator Look for an option similar to "Above 4G Encoding". My motherboard doesn't seem to have that. Try a bootable USB drive with the High Sierra installer instead of the App Store mechanism. The USB boots great, and I can initiate the installation, but upon reboot, I get the same issue trying to boot into the installer.   Disable integrated graphics in the motherboard's BIOS    
      Below are my system details. It seems like it should be possible, based on this post, to run High Sierra with this motherboard and CPU, but I can't get the installer to run. 
      Thanks for any help!
       
      Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5-TH
      CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K
      Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 
      Clover: 5.0 r5115 with basically no mods from the default ISO aside from enabling APFS driver

      Hey guys,
       
      I have been having this issue where my computer will crash when left idle for about 10 minutes. I have seen this being reported elsewhere and have tried various solutions but haven't found a solution yet so will appreciate any help/pointers.
       
      Here are the details of my system:
      1. Asrock Taichi X299
      2. 9800x processor
      3. 64GB RAM
      4. Using latest Clover 5113
      5. Using boot flags: npci=0x2000 darkwake=0
      6. Using latest version of kexts:
          FakeSMC
          AppleALC
          IntelMausiEthernet
          Lilu
          TSCAdjustReset
          WhateverGreen
      7. Drivers
          ApfsDriverLoader
          AptioMemoryFix
          AudioDxe
          DataHubDxe
          FSInject
          HFSPlus
          NvmExpressDxe
          SMCHelper
       
      I have tried the following but doesn't help
      1. adding shikigva=18
      2. adding shikigva=60 - system doesn't even complete boot
      3. swapID.kext
      4. AGPMEnabler.kext
      5. Opencore - doesn't work with my system as Patch APIC is required for my CPU (otherwise validate topology fails with 16 processors vs 17 processors)
      6. Moved graphics card from PCI slot 1 to PCI slot 3
      7. Cleared NVRAM
      I see DumpGPURestart in logs when the crash happens. The funny thing is that the computer could be idle after the boot if I don't login.
      This is on Catalina 10.15.4 with supplemental update
       
      Except this issue, everything seems to be working otherwise:
      1. Sleep
      2. USB
      3. Bluetooth
      4. Sound
       
      Thanks,

      Hi,
      Below are the specs of the system:
      Gigabyte H61M-s 16 GB DDR3 RAM EVO 860 500 GB (APFS formatted) i3-3220 Zotac GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5X (currently using HDMI) Dual booted with Windows 10 on a different drive Config.plist and EFI are at the bottom.
      I have been struggling with a very specific problem since months ago that I still haven't been able to find a working solution for. Before this, I had my hack running on High Sierra that was installed using the tonymac tools. Recently, I reinstalled the OS using the vanilla guide, and the problem is still there after installing the web driver (which I have done using this guide from Hackintosher). I have also tried different builds of macOS 10.13.6 and their corresponding webdriver, and the problem has been the same.
      I have the correct version of Nvidia web driver installed for my version of macOS. The installation was smooth and the Nvidia icon shows up in the status bar. Below, I have explained what happens with different settings.
      1. When the webdriver is disabled in clover, the system works, but obviously with tearing animations, stretched screen resolution and no GPU acceleration. The about section shows the graphics as "Display 5MB". The login screen consists of a plain grey background. Just how it is when you freshly install the OS with non AMD GPUs.  
      2. Now, when the webdriver is enabled in clover and the system is booted, after the apple logo, the screen turns off for a second (to switch resolution), turns back on with the login screen at correct resolution and blurred HS background (like it is supposed to), then shows the shut down screen, then a black screen with cursor in corner, then back to login screen...this goes on and on while the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive. Here's one of the threads I was able to find on similar problem. YouTube link for the video that I have recorded of my screen. The weird part is that this exact thing happens even when the macOS is setup to login automatically, i.e. it displays the frozen login screen with the password field.   3. When the webdriver is enabled along with safe mode in clover, the screen resolution gets fixed and the monitor name is also detected. The about section shows the graphics as "Nvidia Chip Model 6143 MB". But there's still no GPU acceleration and this time, the Nvidia icon is missing from the status bar. This is the closest that I have been able reach to success.   4. When the webdriver along with "Set Nvidia to VESA" is enabled in clover, the system boots up, Nvidia icon is visible in the status bar and when clicked, shows that the webdriver is enabled. But everything else is the same as when the web driver is disabled, as shown in the 1st point above, except that the about section now displays graphics as "Nvidia chip model 5 MB".   Could anyone please help me out? It has been many months and I am now tired of trying and failing. I am completely lost at this point. I have seen so many posts from people with a fully working GTX 1060 on their hacks, yet I am unable to get mine to work. I am guessing it's just an incompatibility problem with my specific version of GTX 1060. Or may be it is just a problem on the software side? Maybe it's just a missing kext, or a single line of code needs to be changed in config.plist? I am also taking into consideration that it could be a problem with HDMI because I haven't yet been able to test out any of the 3 DisplayPorts that the GPU has, due to lack of a DP cable.
      I would be really grateful if anyone is able to help me out with this.

      I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.

      I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?

      I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.

      Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it)
      Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version?
      If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases
      Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?

      Will it be better to use OpenCore?
