What you need to install

- Running install of macOS on VMware -> Downloaded version 10.13 via torrent (search by "10.13 vmware" torrent). You can use a real Mac of an friend. My method only tested on Mavericks (10.9) and above.
- One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger.
- macOS High Sierra install app -> Downloaded via App Store inside the virtual machine. Downloaded version 10.13.2.
- CloverEFI -> Also download inside the virtual machine. I used build 4334.
- DSDT patch skills -> Needed to battery works. How to patch DSDT. Or you can download mine DSDT below, but would not recommend.


How create the install disk
 
Prepare flash drive:

Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

- Open Disk Utility.
- Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
- Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
- Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

If the Erase popup in Disk Utility don't work. Close it and run this in terminal:
diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ Install /dev/diskX
X is the number of the destination disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.

Create install files in flash drive:

Open terminal and run this command:
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction
This will take about 30 minutes.

Install bootloader:

You need to format the EFI partition of the install flash drive to FAT32:
sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI /dev/diskXs1
X is the number of the disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.
 
Download the CloverEFI (used 4334) and install with this options on "Install macOS High Sierra":
Screen_Shot_2017-11-22_at_04.40.09.png
Screen_Shot_2017-11-22_at_04.40.19.png

Options:
 
- Install for UEFI booting only
- Install Clover in the ESP
- Drivers64UEFI - CsmVideoDxe-64
- Drivers64UEFI - OsxAptioFixDrv-64

Adjust the config.plist genereated:

Will be created a partition named EFI. Edit the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist inside this new partition and change those values:

- Alter value: GUI - ScreenResolution to 1366x768
- Rename key: Graphics - #Inject -> Inject
- Alter value: Graphics - Inject - ATI - FALSE
- Alter value: Graphics - Inject - Intel - TRUE
- Rename key: Graphics - #ig-platform-id -> ig-platform-id
Alter value: Graphics - ig-platform-id to 0x01660003
- Alter value: KernelAndKextPatches - AppleIntelCPUPM to TRUE
- Rename key: #KextsToPatch -> KextsToPatch
- Remove all <dict>...</dict> in <array> inside KextsToPatch
- Add <dict/> bellow in <array> inside KextsToPatch:
<dict>
	<key>Comment</key>
	<string>HD 4000 brightness fix</string>
	<key>Disabled</key>
	<false/>
	<key>Find</key>
	<data>
	EAcAABAHAAA=
	</data>
	<key>Name</key>
	<string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string>
	<key>Replace</key>
	<data>
	EhMAABITAAA=
	</data>
</dict>
 
P.s.: I will provide below my config.plist as attachment.
 
Add essentials Kexts:

Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/
 
Download the Smart Touchpad kext from here. I used the version 4.7 beta 5.
Download the HWSensors dmg and use the FakeSMC.kext from inside. I used the version 6.26.1440. This is very important. Can't boot without it.

Put the Clover installer on the flash drive too.
 
Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
 
 
BIOS Setup Configuration and Installation

Bios configuration:
 
- Shutdown the ultrabook and insert the flash drive on the left side on upper port (on the side Keystone hole).
- Power on with F2 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
- Go to "Save & Exit" and press "Restore Defaults".
- Go to "Advanced" tab and change VT-d to Disabled.
- Go to "Save & Exit" again and select "Save Changes and Exit".
- When ASUS logo appear, press and hold ESC to enter Boot Menu.
- Select the flash drive named with UEFI prefix. In my case "UEFI: KingstonDataTraveler 2.0PMAP".
- The clover menu will show. Use the arrow keys to mark the flash drive. The option name is "Boot OS X Install from Install macOS High Sierra", then press Enter.
- If you did everything correctly, you will see the installation screen.
BUG Note: I delete all entries from the list. With that, I could not add anything else. It just didn't work. I had to put some USB device so the list is not empty, so I can add a new entry. Strange thing...

Format destination disk:

Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "HD".

- Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
- Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
- Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
- Name: HD, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

If the Erase popup in Disk Utility don't work. Close it and run this in terminal:
diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ HD /dev/diskX
X is the number of the destination disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.

Close Disk Utility.

If the destination is SSD: Start installation without APFS conversion:

Open Terminal and run:
/Volumes/Image\ Volume/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/HD --converttoapfs NO --agreetolicense
This will take about 20 minutes.

If the destination is HDD: Start installation normally:

Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
Follow instructions in screen.

After install:

After first part install the system will reboot.

In Clover main menu, press enter in "Boot macOS Install from Install macOS High Sierra" once again

The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
 

Post installation

Install bootloader:
 
When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your internal disk EFI parittion with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with "diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.

Add Clover entry to UEFI:

Now remove flash drive and restart the system. With F2 pressed to enter UEFI BIOS.

- Go to "Boot" and press "Add New Boot Option".
- Select "Add boot option", write CLOVER and press Enter.
- In "Select Filesystem", choose the option that contains "HD". Like "PCI(1F|2)\DevicePath(Type 3, SubType 12)HD(Part1,Sig2a0127c1-ea5d-44d3-8967-57e59c1f0e3b)".
- Select "Path for boot option", write EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi and press Enter.
- Select "Create" and press enter.
- Go to "Save & Exit" and select "Save Changes and Exit".

Others Kexts:
 
I strongly recommend always use newest versions. If you are too lazy, I attach on end of the post.
 
Ethernet: AtherosE2200Ethernet 2.2.2
Sound: VoodooHDA 2.9.0d10 (.kext only)

You need to select the output there in System Preferences after reboot.

Battery: ACPIBatteryManager by RehabMan (version 2017-1001). You need to path DSDT (below).
Integrated Camera: AnyiSightCam
USB 3.0 + Touchscreen: Attached USBs.kext below
 
All kexts will placed inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/, mount again this partition (diskutil mount rdiskXs1) for it.
 
 
Fine Adjustiment
 
Enable FN keys
Open "ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist":
- Alter value: Fn keys Layout to ASUS
- Alter value: Fn keys Mode to 3
- Alter value: Preferences - Swap alt and windows key to false

Sleep work, but Hibernate not. Disable it:
sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

Updating to 10.13.2:

Just install Clover 4334 or more recent before install of the update.


 
To do list
 
- Replace VoodooHDA by aDummyHDA (AppleHDA Patcher).

Can't make mic/output jack work. I don't know how fix the layout.

 
- Hibernate

Hibernate not work. The system not resume. (temporarily disabled with "pmset -a hibernatemode 0")

Ps.: Sleep work.


- Brightness and Audio adjustment by FN keys

Need time to search DSDT patch.



Attached files used in the installation. For God's sake, always use the newest versions.

Great guide -- thanks for making it!

 

I've got everything working on my Asus S400C (including wifi, only $14 for a replacement wifi module, worked OOB!). The only thing I don't have working at this point, that you reported as working, is the touchscreen. I've installed USBs.kext, and verified it's loaded using 'kextstat' -- but the touchscreen is non-responsive. Did I miss a step?

This kext is a inject of specifics USBs of the motherboard. Probably your is differente. Use the USBInjectAll.kext to ineject all.

Do not use the USBInjectAll.kext.zip or edit to not inject the port of the touchscreen.

Use this guide: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All

Thanks for the guide, helped me get High Sierra running today on an older S400CA that I brought back to life this weekend!

Just wanted to mention that I've also managed to get the Function Keys working for both the audio and brightness.

Use the "FN Hotkey and ALS Sensor Driver for Asus v2.6" from here: https://osxlatitude.com/topic/1968-fn-hotkey-and-als-sensor-driver-for-asus-notebooks/ (and also download the "Asus DSDT patches (Update2).zip" file)

and patch DSDT with Rehabman's "[igpu] Rename GFX0 to IGPU" patch, using his version of MaciASL from here: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-maciasl-patchmatic/downloads/ (however using a patch for the GFX/IGPU rename in Clover might work as well?)

and also patch DSDT with the “Fn Brightness Keys Patch.txt” from the "Asus DSDT patches (Update2).zip" file.

Then you'll need to follow the steps outlined here to build the Keyboard backlight fix by Rehabman: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-laptop-backlight-control-using-applebacklightinjector-kext.218222/

Also, I should mention that I also opted to use the latest version of the Lilu.kext from: https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu/releases along with the IntelGraphicFixup.kext from https://github.com/lvs1974/IntelGraphicsFixup/releases (to fix the "boot garble / glitch" issue).

There is also a HibernationFixup.kext for Lilu that may also resolve the hibernation issues (see: https://github.com/lvs1974/HibernationFixup/releases) but I haven't tested this yet myself.

I've also managed to patch the audio successfully now w/working mic and headphones detection, and no longer am using VoodooHDA, however I'm away from that machine at the moment but will edit this post with an update of the steps taken to do so.

Thanks for your original guide, it saved me a ton of effort getting High Sierra running on this machine!

Enjoy!

ola luan eduardo, estou fazendo um hack no meu asus s400ca pelo que vi é identico ao seu, atualmente instalei o mac osx sierra, pois ja peguei uma pasta EFI pronta pois nao sei nada de hackitosh (ainda), seguir seu tutorial para auterar algumas coisas no meu config.plist e criar o meu DSDT, ate ai tudo bem mais ao tentar aplicar os path da varios erros na hora de copilar, vou ver se consigo colocar o meu config.plist que estou usando em anexo e o meu dsdt original, voce ou algeuem poderia me da uma ajuda a resolver isso, vou colocar um print dos erros que aparace no meu DSDT se alguem poder resolver ou me dar uma luz de como resolver agradeço, 

outra coisa, o config.plist e o DSDT serve para todas as vesoes do MacOS ou pra cada versao tem que ser feito tudo de novo?

se posivel vc ou alguem que ja tenha resolvido esses problemas no sierra, poder disponibilizar a pasta EFI ou os arquivos de config.plist e o dsdt para o sierra ou poder concerta o meu ou me dizer como concertos esse erros. 

a pergunta parece besta, mais vamos la, posso usar a pasta EFI do mac os high sierra num sistema Mac sierra ou visse versa? o erro eu simplemente apaguei a linha, posso fazer isso?

the dsdt is full patched for ur config

 

good hack

Hello, thanks for your help, sorry for my english, I'm using google translator, I used the config.plist you left to download and dsdt, the system started normal, then I ran the app that sent it, and it was generating a .zip file, I will be leaving it attached to this message. I have some doubts if I can answer by kindly thank you, first this dsdt that left is my corrected dsdt or is it a generic dsdt? Can I keep using it? and this config.plist is the conf I should use? if it was not, you could help me with mine, I tried to correct more, but I can not. and once again thank you. I did not answer before because I was very busy with college.

se os arquivos que eu enviar estiverem funcionando bem ... por que mudar?

 

bom hack

I tried to upload the generated file more this giving error in the upload, I will try to put in my driver, this link

link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1owivdJRhjsdWdPb6Gy_3DldJTA5qZnpL/view?usp=sharing

apparently it is working well, but I noticed some peaks of temperature in the CPU reaching 85 degrees Centigrade, monitoring with HWmonitor, another problem I have been experiencing is that the hack does not shut down, every time I send it off it just reboots and goes to the boot screen more that has been happening since I started this hack, I asked if I could be using this dsdt because in some articles that I read says to use only the dsdt of the notebook itself, so I asked if this was the file that I had uploaded already corrected or if it was a generic file. I was not able to upload the generated folder with the app that made it available on the site, so I uploaded the link on the drive in the message above.

      AppleAHCIPort.kext v328 from High Sierra PB1_17A291m.
       
      Info.plist has been edited so Bundle version is 999.1.1 ---> give higher priority loading in kernel cache/pre-linked kernel than v329 from later betas/GM. Need to disable SIP (since editing info.plist invalidates Apple's kext signature).
       
      Install in /Library/Extensions (so doesn't get over-written during updates) repair permissions, rebuild caches eg
      sudo chown -R 0:0 /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext && sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /   Test kext is loadable...
      sudo kextutil -tn /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext   Confirm kext is loaded after rebooting the system...
      kextstat | grep AHCIPort   To use with a USB installer, the kext needs to be included in the prelinkedkernel. Use PLK.tool attached to post#13 to create a new prelinkedkernel with AppleAHCIPort.kext v328, then replace original prelinkedkernel in the installer - post#16.

      Hi,
       
      I thought it would be nice that I would be the first here to give my experience with getting Mojave running and mostly working on my system.
       
      My specifications are as follows:
       
      iMac 14,2
       
      GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD5H / Intel Core i7-4770k @ 4.4GHz / 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 @ 1600MHz
      MSI AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB OC
      250GB SanDisk Ultra 3D NAND SSD / 120GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD
      1TB 5.4K HDD
       
      I used the config that @MaLd0n helped me with. Seriously, he is a legend. HERE is my Clover Config including everything I use for 10.13 High Sierra and 10.14 Mojave.
       
      Installation Procedure:
       
       
      Create bootable USB media with createinstallmedia - sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/"Insert Volume Name here"  ***** Remove quotation marks!!! 
       
      **"--Applicationpath" is now depreciated and should not be used when making a 10.14 Mojave USB. I do not know if this will change in upcoming releases.
       
      ** ConvertToAPFS is now depreciated and no longer works when installing 10.14 Mojave beta 1. Using the command "--converttoapfs NO" will not work if you use it with "createinstallmedia".
       
      Editing "minstallconfig.xml" within the "macOS Install Data" folder on the target partition chosen during installation to change "ConvertToAPFS" from "TRUE" to "FALSE" would also not disable APFS conversion.
       
      Installation ran through well, but it did restart just after installation began which seemed to have been caused by a crash, but it seemed like it was normal as this happened twice as I tried installing Mojave earlier and the same thing happened. Rebooting again into the installation on the target drive that was selected before described as "macOS Install"  and named "macOS 10.14" resumed installation.
       
      Everything from then on was easy and smooth. I set-up my iCloud and things as such and was brought to the desktop of macOS 10.14 Mojave!
       
       
      What does work:

      This is the information I have been able to gather thus far whilst using Mojave.
       
      I hope this helps someone in getting Mojave running on their system.

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.13 installation on MBR partition.
       
      To use those patched files you must follow HowTo-10.13.x to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
       
      The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.13 Firmware check by crazybirdy.
       
      What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
      1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR partition.
      2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
      3. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR and GPT partition (GPT+recovery).

      No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
       
      How to make 10.13 installer for MBR?
      Read HowTo-10.13.x.txt inside the zip file first, different with 10.12.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to install in different computer with only one USB partition?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q8. How to update 10.13.x combo-update to MBR without downloading the full installer app again?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q9. How to update 10.13.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
       
      Just use 13MBRinstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
       
      And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
