High Sierra on Ryzen 7 1700 Help

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.1 on my PC. But i'm stuck with few things. 

First my spec:

Proc: Ryzen 7 1700

MB: Asus Prime x370 - pro

Gfx: Nvidia gtx 680 and 1080ti (for installation 1080 i take off from pc)

SSD - samsung 960 evo (nvme)

few HDD's

USB for installer

 

And there are problems i identify:

 

After few hours of trying and adding, removing kext i succesfully installed OS to HDD but after formatting this HDD to any mac format installer stops detecting this HDD (then i cannot run any script - disk isn't visible in disk manager and listing of this hdd is also unsuccesfully) but if i clear GUID on this hdd in windows it make visible in macos installer and i can format and install HS. After rebooting Clover recognize this HDD (and i am able to boot HS) but after that i have info: Waiting for root device. When i put some AHCI kext it works or not (no idea - looks like randomly). About hdd - this disk i'm able to run and read without problems on my second PC (Yosemite).

 

Ahh important thing, i cannot format and change pratitions on other preformatted in windows disks too. i need to have cleaned RAW HDD.

 

GTX 680 also don't want to start when i disble SIP i got errors, when SIP is enable i got instant reboot.

 

I need advice about which kext are obligartory to use in my spec, how set clover. 

 

Best Regards

Marcin

Yep... but HDD is formated as HFS not as APFS

 

One more installer see my other hdds, nvme one too and Mac RAID disk also. But doesn,t see High Sierra Os disk... what's going on...

Ok after investigating problem - that was HDD when i change to another one HS is allways visible, i make preinstall script and postinstall script but when i start system 1st time with SIP i got instant restart, when SIP is diasbled the apple logo appear and booting don't go further.  Should i use some more settings for GTX 680?

After disabling NVIDIA inject in clover options all monitors are black..

 

Ok important thing - disabling NVIDIa inject and selecting NVIDIA single make work!!!!

Hi finally my system work fine :)

I found sollution if you have 2 gfx (1080ti and 680) onborad. If you start installer from USB you need to tick in clover setings for GTX 680 Inject NVIDIA and Single Card, untick injectNvidia for  gtx 1080ti and installer boots up.

 

I found that poor performance of GTX 1080ti is that card doesn't change p-state when running 3D application like Cinebench, is that possible???

 

Best Regards

Marcin
