[HELP] Can't install AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series on High Sierra

72 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

All I can say at this point is to use the latest clover I posted and do a clean install.

Ok, just clicked “download” at High Sierra app on App Store. It will take 2min , I’ll create the bootable USB with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], after that I’ll replace the Clover that [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installs with the one you just gave me. All right? Any advices?

NO! don't use those apps!!!!! we do not support those tools and you don't need them anyway.

 

use this command in terminal instead:

 

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app —nointeraction

 

just use disk utility to erase the USB disk and leave the title as is "Untitled" then open terminal and use the command I gave you to create the USB installer. once it's done mount the EFI folder and copy the one I gave you.

It's ok, if you read the rules of the InsaneMac.com you'll see that why we don't support TM tools.

That's good, I hope you get it to work this time. Just remember to keep the iGPU disabled and set the AMD GPU as primary in BIOS.

 

Good luck.

This is the EFI folder I use on my Asus P7H55 with the AMD Radeon HD 7790. If this doesn't get your system going I'm not sure what else can  :rofl:

 

Just remember that my system doesn't have UEFI support. It's legacy BIOS.

Okay, I’m booting the HDD and installing the EFI folder on the USB, let’s see...

Well, there must another problem with your setup because I just used that EFI folder on my rig it boots into macOS Sierra with no problem and I'm installing High Sierra as we speak.

What should I do? What do you need? Are you using the DVI or de HDMI port on the 7790?

I'm using HDMI cable. What do you use to connect your GPU?

DVI port

You can either change the DVI port on the GPU or use the HDMI cable, DVI port mapping had some issues with the whatevergreen kext and do you have multiple displays or just one display?

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.13 installation on MBR partition.
       
      To use those patched files you must follow HowTo-10.13.x to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
       
      The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.13 Firmware check by crazybirdy.
       
      What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
      1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.13 installation on MBR partition.
      2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
      3. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR and GPT partition (GPT+recovery).

      No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
       
      How to make 10.13 installer for MBR?
      Read HowTo-10.13.x.txt inside the zip file first, different with 10.12.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to install in different computer with only one USB partition?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q8. How to update 10.13.x combo-update to MBR without downloading the full installer app again?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q9. How to update 10.13.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
       
      Just use 13MBRinstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
       
      And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
       
       
      Q: What's the difference between createinstallmedia method and MBR-patch method?
      A: As the following....
      1. createinstallmedia method, needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, worked with GUID only.
      2. MBR-patch method, install via stage 2 directly, worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS.

      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

      ho recentemente acquistato un ssd crucial mx500 (arrivato stamattina) e non ho idea di come trasferire il sistema operativo e clover dal mio attuale wd black 500 (2.5" che ho preso da un portatile a caso in casa) su questo nuovo ssd per vedere se questo rende il sistema più reattivo, sul sito crucial dicono solo come copiare i dati e os sul disco ma niente (ovviamente), cosa devo fare per sostituire bootloader, os, programmi e dati su questo nuovo disco? Ho in dualboot win 10 pro (che avvia da un altro 128gb ssd) quindi posso usare anche programmi da win, da una distro linux o da pennetta, non ho usato un granchè osx in quanto l'hdd credo lo renda lento quindi non sono molto esperto in queste cose su osx
      Inoltre mi conviene rimanere su hfs+ o usare apfs come file system?

      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.

      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
