Hi everyone! I'm really struggling to get my first Hackintosh up and running, and after researching this issue for ages, I cannot seem to find a solution that works for me, so I've posted in TonyMacx86 as well as here the problem that I'm having, as I am very desperate for some sort of solution.

 

I have gotten to the point in High Sierra installation after the first reboot, to the process where the operating system is actually installed on the local HDD. Unfortunately, my installer consistently crashes at the same place, with 15 min remaining in the installation, giving the message "macOS could not be installed on your computer An error occurred installing macOS. To use Apple Diagnostics...". I have tried the following steps to fix the issue:

 

-Re-installing/re-imaging the USB drive (going as far as to reformat the thumb drive and re-download the High Sierra app from the App store)

-Attempting the installation with only one stick of RAM instead of two

-Removing EmuVariableUefi-64.efi from its original location

-Unplugging any external storage devices

-Checking to make sure the destination disk is formatted correctly (it is)

-Trying any combination of boot-flags that I could think of (no effect, except curiously safe mode crashes my installation)

 

And, these are my specs:

 

i7-8700k

GeForce 1080

MSI Z370 SLI PLUS

ASUS Xonar DGX (I imagine I'll have to disable this when I get the OS up and running...I doubt there's any way I'll be able to support a sound card)

2x8GB RAM

512GB Samsung 960 Pro NVMe SSD (windows boot drive)

4TB Seagate HDD (windows data drive)

1TB Seagate HDD (OS X destination drive)

 

The tutorial I've been following for the installation has been a combination between this forum post:

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

 

And this walkthrough:

http://hackintosher.com/guides/macos-high-sierra-hackintosh-install-clover-walkthrough/

 

(the TonyMacx86 walkthrough was giving me too many problems so I abandoned it) 

 

I got my config.plist off of this website's forums, from a person with a very similar build to my own.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you! Unfortunately, though, it didn't help. I modified my BIOS settings to mirror his as closely as I could (only involved me switching XMP on), and replaced my EFI folder with his. I couldn't even get to the installer when I did that, so I restored my old EFI folder, and tried using his config.plist, and ended up getting stuck in the same place.

 

I am completely lost, so I've uploaded a zip file of my admittedly very messy EFI partition here for y'all to look at.

hi Philies9513.

 

I am sorry for your bad experience hackintoshing so far. But that is how it is right, must work hard sometimes. Especially when putting an unsupported OS on third party HW.

 

Follow this guide https://github.com/Pavo-IM/CloverInstallThe Sierra guide will work, even if you use High Sierra. Just change the CIM command. 

 

If you need more help, you could also try the InsanelyMac Chat.

Thank you! I actually got the OS installed on my own, but I can't boot into it.  I'm stuck in a boot loop ending with the following message:

 

"IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0"

 

So far I have tried to fix this by doing the following to no avail:

-Manually patching the config.plist with the blank screen fix (in Clover Configurator)

-Installing Lilu, Intel fix and Nvidia fix kexts in the Library/Resources directory manually via the terminal on the recovery partition of the HDD

-Every combination of boot flags and injections I could think of

-Changing the iGPU's Fake IDs from 0x00000000 to 0x12345678

 

That's all I could find worked for others with the same error...thoughts?

Hi. I had a similar problem which was that the hard disk kext got stuck for some reason. There is a patch that when applied in config.list in kext and patches allowed it to continue booting.

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/328037-cant-boot-hs-after-successful-install/?p=2537533check the part that says about  patching the AppleACPIPlatform for hd. Try it. Hopefully will help
