Hi all guys :) I need your help and I hope you can help me :)

 
I took the road to install High Sierra on my new build and now I have some doubt / difficulty I do not know how to solve.
 
My configuration:
8700K
Asrock Z370 Professional Gaming i7
AMD RX580 Nitro+ 8GB
 
First I created the usb pendrive and I used Clover with the following configurations:

Bios Setting:
VT-d = Disabled
Share Memory = 128MB
IGPU Multi-Monitor = Enabled
XHCI Hand-off = Enabled
SMBIOS:
iMac18,3
So far no problem, it started successfully, I initialized the hdd in APFS and I ran the installation.

 

Once finished, it started and I made the first configuration successfully. At this point I configured Clover the same way as the installation:

I reboot and start without problems, but I know there is some problem to solve ... for example, the video card seems to recognize it but if I run a benchmark with "Novabench" I noticed that the GPU is recognized as 1GB:
 
With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled":

I tried to delete "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled" and I recognize the card differently but the same problem presents itself:

Why is it recognized by 1GB instead of 8GB? While on System Profiler is recognized by 8GB .... I'm doing something wrong? :(

 

 

 

I tried to enable also "Hardware Encoding & HEVC Support" but I noticed a detail that I do not know if it's right or not (Hardware Info "MacX Video Converter Pro"):

 
Without "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled":

Is it normal that this occurs? Which one is correct? I'm going completely in confusion :(

 

I'm trying to figure out if I need to make any other changes to the system, if I add some other patches to make it work properly but I do not know where to check.

I'm trying to configure the DSDT but DSDT Editor and MaciASL do not work, they do not open the DSDT.aml file generated by AIDA64.
 
Do you know how to give me a hand? I'm banging my head for 2 days :( I thank you in advance for the help and I apologize for my english :)
 
I hope I was clear :)

Hi,

 

Lilu is needed with WhateverGreen. And you can get ACPI files extracted from Clover by pressing F4 as you boot to Clover. it will be in EFI/Clover/ACPI/Origin. You later patch the DSDT with MaciASL. You might also want to check iOReg for that. However, Mald0n (Moderator on InsanelyMac) tends to happily do it for people. Look up Mald0n on InsanelyMac, and check his thread about CoffeeLake Z370. 

 

 

Good luck.

But the fact that Novabench recognizes it as 1GB? Why? So it is correct to use Lilu and WhateverGreen for GPU?

And you can get ACPI files extracted from Clover by pressing F4

Once I select the volume to start the mac I have to immediately press F4 (once only)?

 

While regarding Hardware Encoding & HEVC Support "why does Lilu and WhateverGreenrecognize the Intel video card and not AMD?

 

PS: MaciASL it does not work, it gives me an error

The benchmarking softwares might tell you some false or different hardware informations, but that is only cosmetic issues, usually. I know it isn't nice to have it there, but that is how it is. :)

But adding the modified "AML" files, what changes at the end? Can I send files without problems? because I saw that there are many ... what's inside?  :P  :D

But it's really strange because the result of novabench is this: 

CPU: 263 (8700K)

RAM: 292 (16GB 3200)

GPU: 558

 

While on windows the results are much higher, and as if they did not recognize the various components :(

So ... did you ever get this motherboard to work correctly?  I'm looking at getting this exact motherboard and CPU, so I wanted to check.

      I wanted to push watercooling to the most. Silent. Level. possible.
      While gaming and also for working.
      Quite a challenge and a lot to learn.
       
      Thoughts on water-cooling:
      It always depends on the use-case if water-cooling is more silent than air-cooling.
       
      My personal experience:
      Air-cooling is more silent in idle load scenarios (when you just do some easy tasks like browsing or office) Water-cooling is more silent for constant high load (e.g. when you are gaming/working for long times)  
      Tricks to get the water-cooling as silent as possible:
      Configure the BIOS to turn off the radiator-fans in Idle load scenarios. That leaves only the pump running. Undervolt the pump (to e.g. constant 7V).
      This works best, if you can plug the pump into a fan or pump header and assign a constant (lower that 100%) speed to it in the BIOS.
      If your BIOS does not allow that, you could use a resistor-adaptor to slow it down.

      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 10.14beta
      Browse Apple's Public Beta 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  
      startosinstall.command.zip
       
      InstallInfo.plist_edited_10.14beta1.zip

      Hello everyone, it sure has been a while since I last posted here. I'm trying to upgrade my Hackintosh to High Sierra, and right now it's running Sierra which I installed last year. My hardware is a Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 mobo with Intel Core i5-2500K. Unfortunately, I can't even run the installer. I have an installer USB stick with Clover 4558 on it, and whenever I try to run the installer from it, I get a KP after an extremely long boot process. There are so many panic messages that flash by so fast, but I think I got everything relevant in these pics.

      Hello, 
       
      I just finished hackintosh installation on my computer with below configuration,
       
      CPU : Intel i5 8400
      MOBO : ASUS ROX STRIX H370-F GAMING
      GPU : On board Intel UHD 630
      RAM : 8 GB Crucial
      SSD : 240 GB WD
      PS : Corsair VS550W
      Cabinet : Corsair 100R
      OS : High Sierra 10.13.5
       
      Everything is working fine except Graphics full acceleration, i get only 7 MB GPU.
       
      Tried with IntelGraphicsFix, Lilu.. and other Kexts.. but nothing is working. 
       
      Any help to get full GPU would be appreciated.
       
      Thanks
