[SUCCESS][GUIDE] Glasgood's High Sierra CoffeeLake: ASUS STRIX Z370-G - i7-8700 - GTX1080ti - UHD

320 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

OK, I´m very confused - if you are right.

Like I said: There are plenty of builds on the unmentionable hackintosh forum using Realtek wifi, from what I can tell - so I´m not sure why it´s not doable.

Perhaps High Sierra demands a different solution?

 

FYI: I´m running Intel I218V2 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet with IntelMausiEthernet.kext

 

 

Not sure what to tell you - again, google the card and you can see there are no OS X drivers.  If you see them on TM, please post the links.

@glasgood : Any input on the wifi/bluetooth issue?  :angel:

 

Supported OS X WiFi cards is a mine field, to be honest I played it safe by using a proper Apple WiFi module in an adapter.  There are Wifi cards that plug into USB ports, but you would not get iMessages, AirDrop etc.. working.  Sorry I can't be of anymore help on this.

Maybe you´re right - maybe it´s not possible under High Sierra, or using Z370. Will keep exploring, and worst case get a wifi/BT that works. Thanks! :)

THANKS A LOT ! 

 

I have bookmarked your article in tonymacx86 and found it has been deleted, feel so upset until i get this page.

 

My hardware list:

MSI 1070Ti

Asus Z370-G

i7 8700K

8*2G

 

almost the same with yours, so i use your EFI made a usb installer and install macOS, seems everything is working good.

 

But the "About This Mac" page show "NVIDIA Graphics Device 8 GB" after nvidia web driver installed, I don't konw how to modify it, thanks for your time.

I’m happy you found the guide, welcome? Sounds like your GTX is installed as it is registered in “About this Mac” You only need to modify the driver after an update when graphics is broken.

Guide is confirmed working for the parts listed. I notice you have similar build, you have a "Asus rog rx 560 O4G Gaming" ATI graphics card. I have not used or tested my configuration with ATI cards. As a suggestion, ​If you try my EFI , download and use the Intel EFI folder but use the BIOS settings recommended for dedicated graphics card ie Nvidia. As you have a slightly different  Asus 370-E Strix board, then remove the Asus USB Ports patch from Clover/ACPI/Patched folder. For ATI card try Using Clover configurator  go to Graphics Section  and check RadeonDeInit.

If this works for you then please let me know, I can then update my Guide for ATI Radeon users. See my post for Win+High Sierra dual boot solution.

 

Thanks.

Can you upload your config.plist file and a screenshot of System Report Graphics / Display. Make sure you are not injecting Nvidia in config.plist.

FYI I opted to get an external Wi-fi and Bluetooth PCI-E card, just to be safe. 
Got the ABWB Hackintosh combo-card. Should work OOB. Only issue it seems to have with older MBs is waking after sleep or not sleeping at all.
AFAIU it should not be an issue with Z300 boards.

Cool, thanks :) Good to know! :)

If you can see my specs, can you tell me if I can just follow your "manual" - or if I need to do something differently?

I can't see you're specs, but the wifi card works out of the box. If you are dual booting with  Windows, download the drivers BroadcomWirelessWin8x64.exe and BroadcomComController64.exe, BroadcomBluetooth64.exe for the wireless card via boot camp.

I see you have the Z370 Maximus X hero. As it's a different board, It should work at some level!  I have noticed that the sound on your board is S1220 but not exact same as my Z370-G Strix as it has S1220(A). So sound is not guaranteed, you may have to troubleshoot and try different Layout-ID in config.plist. Also you will have to remove the Asus USB ports patch from Clover/ACPI/Patched folder as they are specific for the Z370-G Asus Strix. Best  :)

Great! Thanks so much! :) So, the two boards have different USB setups? Interesting that two similar boards need different patches, but I learn something new every day. Thanks for enlightening me :)

damn, I had not seen...in any case, I'll have to first install mac on nvme, and then remove the nvme from the motherboard and connect the hard disk and install windows 10 on hd, all in uefi mode, right?

Yeah, or before installing High Sierra on NVMe, install Windows. Then Remove Window's drive then install High Sierra on NVMe.

A couple of questions regarding wifi and installing extra drives:

1) I received the "ABWB combo card for Hackintosh". Do I need the USB-connector when it´s plugged into the PCI-E slot?

 

2) Will it make sense to use the antennas that came with my ASUS X Hero board (longer wires so it can sit on the table), or do I stick to the 3 antennas that came with the ABWB? FYI the ASUS antenna only covers 2 out of 3 outlets, so I´ll still have to use one of the ABWB antennas to fill all 3 antenna sockets/connectors.

 

3) Currently I have one M.2 SSD drive installed and plan to use it as the main drive. Then later, when the new machine is up and running, I will add all the drives from my "old" machine, so I don´t lose any uptime. (2 HDD drives and 4 SSD drives)
Is there anything I need to be aware of when doing it like this? I mean, any BIOS settings that need to be changed after plugging in the rest of the drives or similar?

Thanks :)

1.  For Bluetooth, yes.  If you don't care about BT, you don't need to worry about that USB cable. 

2.  I'd stick with what's in the box, but you can experiment! 

3.  You'd want to boot from the drive that contains the Clover/etc. setup, and it would then show a boot menu with your Windows drive(s).  You can edit the Clover config to remove any extra drives / items you don't want to see (recovery, for example).

Thanks a lot, Bluescreens! :)

 

One follow-up question to point 3:

Maybe I was unclear, but I want to ONLY use the M.2 SSD while setting up the new machine, THEN transfer (physically) the rest of my drives when the main drive is ready to go. Will I have to make any changes once the additional drives are added to the new machine?

Thanks :)

      Hello all,
      I have a working hackintosh....ok.....but it takes a lot to boot and according to the boot.log there are a few problems.
      One of them is a black screen that stays on for a long time.
      I would like to ask anyone in this community some help to fine tune my machine.
      Boot.log and config.plist attached


      Any help would be appreciated.

      hi folks! i'm just checking for opinions here on a Clover based install of High Sierra. currently i can't boot directly from the internal drive on my hackbook, an ASUS ROG GL502-VS laptop (with the replaced WiFi card), though i can boot from the USB bootloader/installer

      i installed 10.13.6 fine using a prepared vanilla installer on HFS+ (not APFS), but my configuration is somewhat unusual. i have two drives. the first SSD has the Windows system, the second has two partitions with the 2nd partition holding the macOS system. when i ran Clover installer i could not use the UEFI option to copy to the EFI partition because it couldn't find one on that drive. so it installed the EFI folder on the root of the macOS partition instead.
       
      however, after a bit of tinkering around, i found out that there is an existing EFI partition on the primary drive called SYSTEM. it has a EFI folder and underneath that is a Windows folder, a Boot folder, and one called APPLE. i can mount this partition with Clover Configurator and copy files to it, but i don't know if this is a good or risky solution. i was thinking i would manually copy the CLOVER folder and the uefi64.boot file to this partition , making sure not to overwrite anything existing. using the UEFI setup, i can create a boot path from the SYSTEM partition to the Clover boot file, but i'm just curious if this is a useful solution or not, and i don't want to ruin the existing Windows 10 installation for sure. any advice appreciated!

      OK, 4988 released.
      Now, @vector sigma, what have we do to update translations?

      Clover r4989 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4989 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4989-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
