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

It's done!


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?

hello @Ricardo

 

try this after boot

 

run this app and upload the folder in ur desktop

 

RunMe.app.zip

 

please here write in English .. we have a Portuguese sub forum at insanelymac

 

DSDT.aml.zip

 

config.plist.zip

 

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.

      Is that normal or i should to care about 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 10.14GM
      Browse Apple's Developer Beta Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...

      This Post is for helping users with issue that come with Whatevergreen

      Feel free to join in and help users if you know your stuff
      also get the dev's of whatever green to join as well


      Whatevergreen has a few issues

      Multi-monitor Support is lacking as 2 monitors seems to be the limit for some even if the devs say it's not users say it's true

      Some Id's are wrong or missing (hence the nano and 390X not working)

      some GPU names are wrong ( which has been reported many times)

      FOR RYZEN OWNERS with Polaris :
      Modified kext:/S/L/E/AMD9510Controller.kext//Contents/Info.plistfrom:<key>IOPCIMatch</key><string>0x67EF1002</string>to:<key>IOPCIMatch</key><string>0x67FF1002</string> Updating clover to Clover_v2.4k_r4152 and using the config.plist here https://pastebin.com/TYiTEVcMwithbusratio=36 and npci=0x3000 ALSO THIS THREAD IS NOT FOR WHINING in anyway please do not post off topic if you don't like given support in this forum that's all you but majority of use need it.

If you Don't Want To use WEG or LILU clover 4297 has a new patch that fixes the same issues without kexts

      Hi, there
      My desktop hackintosh cannot enter the Sleep Mode.
      I mean it can enter the sleep mode for a few seconds and it will automatically wake up itself.
      How can I fix this issue.
      Thanks for your help.
