[Guide] Dell XPS 15 9560 - High Sierra 10.13.2

Hi Antomaug and welcome in the Hackintosh Scene lol.

I made this guide only for fresh install.

 

The direct upgrade is not possible from 10.12 to 10.13 because they made changes in the system files.

 

Let me know if you have any questions

can confirm: direct update is no problem at all. even with transition to APFS....

I new to hackintosh scene, sorry for the dumb question. Is this tutorial for upgrading a hackintosh to its latest version or to do a fresh install?

 

I upgraded from 10.12 to 10.13 and my only issues so far are being unable to update to 10.13.3 without a kernel panic and HDMI audio not working and sleep not working (it restarts the computer after a while)

Did you manage to solve this? I'm still on the fence and don't know to try this tutorial or not :)

Hey sorry about the late response I never got notifications about a reply. Yeah I have everything up and running now except for my headphone jack, I just updated the kexts that came in the efi download above because it might have had to do with the fact im installing 13.3 instead of 13.2? Oh well. working fine now.

Hi all, I'm fairly new to the Hackintosh scene and I'm still finding my bearings on how to make it all work out. 

I've been doing some reading specially Rehabman & KNNSpeed guides and been learning a bunch of new things! I've ended up checking out this guide - Major kudos to Zsparrow0 for putting it together.

 

I've been failing to get the installer to boot, I'm sure I'm missing something. I've followed the guide and I'm still stuck as acboop1000.

Oh well. working fine now.

 

I'm wondering if 10.13.3 is the cause (the guide mentions 10.13.2), how were you able to solve this?

 

I've tried updating the kexts on the link you mentioned as well as updating apfs.efi but the installer boot still fails.

Is this guide incompatible with 13.3 installations or is there any files I'm missing? 
Is there any place I could download 13.2 from? Unfortunately, I can only get the most recent update from the appstore.

Cheers and thanks for the amazing work.

EDIT: Solved - Followed all the steps from scratch, this time with the 10.13.2 version, installer booted successfully.

I just wanna know if anybody can boot into 10.13.4 beta with graphic acceleration (with xps 9560 4k). I can with 10.13.3, not 10.13.4.

I managed to boot the installer and format the SSD through disk utility (APFS), set it to install then after the first reboot I select "boot macOS install from drive", it gets to the installation screen and then after a few minutes of no progress on the install, the laptop suddenly reboots.

 

When clover boots again I have a third boot option "boot from recovery". I've been going around this but couldn't yet install the OS.

I´ve tried:

- boot from the Preboot also but the same problem occurs,

- Boot from recovery - starts booting but reboots shortly after

- Format the SSD to Mac-OS Journaled, get a bit more progress on the install but still crashes the same way.

I'm now wondering what other options I could try, does anyone been through a similar scenario? Any ideas on how to get around it would be much appreciated.

As said in the guide during the first installation screen your computer will reboot sudently you have to make sure to PRESS F12 to boot from your usb drive (As clover is not yet installed) and then you have to boot in PREBOOT mode. and the installation should continue for about 10 minutes.

 

If it reboot always make sur you press F12 and use Preboot or Boot from "" NEVER RECOVERY (during the installation process)

 

Let me know

I just wanna know if anybody can boot into 10.13.4 beta with graphic acceleration (with xps 9560 4k). I can with 10.13.3, not 10.13.4.

 

I did the update the crash as well, I don't know where it come from need to update the kext I think..

then you should not perform an install on a notebook as your first step... you'll not be happy at all without such basic knowledge.

In Clover configuration on the right hand side towards the bottom there’s a bar that says “mount EFi” or something like that. In the table click the “mount partition” button for your hard drive (or USB if that’s what you’re trying to access).

Hello everyone !


I tried to install mac os by folowing your step by step guide but I've never can boot to the installer…
I'm on a XPS 15 9560, BIOS updated to 1.9.4, Full HD screen, 512Go integrated Toshiba full SSD and the basic Killer wifi card.
For now, I have already an hackingtosh on my desktop computer so I have create the 16Go USB key with the command line and the High Sierra App. I've also copy your efi folder in the EFI partition of the key.I've configure the BIOS, and it boot up on the key. But When i'm on clover, I see just 7 Windows Partition of my SSD not the USB installer...
Someone have an idea ?

If I use other methode to create the usb key I can boot up on the key installer using clover but it stuck on the apple logo

      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 10.14 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.

      Clover r4542 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 14 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4542 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4542-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.

      Hello,
       
      Maybe i am the only one seeing this or maybe i am doing something wrong but my resize animation performance in HS 10.13.5 is terrible.
      I did a clean install of 10.13.5, installed the latest nvidia drivers 387.10.10.10.35.106. 
      My GPU is a GTX1060 connected via DP to a 4k display.
      Now, the issue, when i open an empty TextEdit for example, if i drag the corner of the window to make it larger, it lags more and more as the size increases.
      I also have Adobe Audition CC installed for my work, the interface is very slow compared to the windows version (my 2011 macbook pro is much faster, but it's not 4k).
      Is there a known issue when running 4k on nvidia web drivers ?
      It's very frustrating because i've been using custom machines with 1080p displays and nvidia cards since Snow Leopard, but i was always butter smooth.
       
      Thanks.

      I start this topic to make my Lenovo Thinkpad W540 usable with High Sierra
       
      I followed many guides but this one started by @tluck made me most progress: 
      My setup as in signature
       
      I will update first post with statuses of working features:
       
      Graphics:
      Nvidia Quadro - disabled
      Intel HD 4600 - working @ 1920x1080 and 1,5GB RAM (had to set ig-plaform-id as Haswell desktop, mobile do not work)
      using intelGraphicsFixUp.kext
       
      Sound:
      internal speakers and mic works with AppleACL.kext and profile 28

      USB:
      i boot MacOS from USB drive and it works, mouse and pendrive also works
      USB power not work yet, so USB WiFi dongle and iPhone connection not work (no power @ USB)
      IOReq finds only USB 3.0 controller not USB 2.0 even though I have 2 ports USB 3.0 and 2 ports USB 2.0
       
       
      Integrated Camera:
      recognised in IOReq but not working now (probably due to USB)
       
      Bluetooth:
      as USB but works without problem

      Ethernet:
      works with intelMausiEthernet.kext

      Keyboard:
      internal is PS2 so VoodooPS2Controller.kext is needed - some mappings I would like to have different but works

      Touchpad:
      works with VoodooPS2Controller.kext from @tluck topic
       
      Trackpoint:
      One time works mostly not - debugging in progress

      Sleep / Hibernate:
      not working
       
      Backlight:
      not working
       
      Other found issues:
      besides that graphics works @ 1920x1080 and have a lots of ram window shadows (especially dock shadow) looks bad
       
      External VGA:
      not tested yet
       
      External Mini Display Port / Thunderbolt:
      not tested yet
