Try this config  I delivered the same SMBIOS info that you had

 

EDIT ** You can remove the Hot plug patch and Atheros patch if you don't want

config.plist

Thanks, i tried it, but Clover showed me two apples like I had two installations. I booted the first one but it was kinda ...hm.. strange. iCloud reported an error with my user and forced to log on again. I have checked the SMBIOS data but it really lookes fine. Do you have an idea why i had suddenly two boot options?

Yeah, exactly, sorry for the stupid question. The recovery volume was hidden before.
I tried your config again and sleep and wake works now, thanks a lot :)

It won't install on my 755 though, not sure why.
Deleted the install data, cleared nvram, re-downloading the update now ...

Edit: Nope, won't install.

An error occurred while extracting files from the package “macOSUpd10.13.4.pkg”
NSFilePath=/Volumes/Macintosh SSD/.PKInstallSandboxManager-SystemSoftware/BE532251-D324-4E77-9369-CCE971E4D4F6.activeSandbox/Root

NSUnderlyingError=0x7f9b2c399ab0 {Error Domain=PKXARArchiveErrorDomain Code=101 "archive verify failed"

Will try clean install tomorrow.

After 7 attempts of installing the update on the 755, it finally installed without problems. I still don't know for sure what the problem was, other than guessing that one way or the other the install data got corrupted.

Again, audio works without issues.

I also think about buying a Q9400 or a Q9550..
Do you have experience with it, is it that faster than E8400 that it's worth?
And do I have to reinstall everything or can I just replace the CPU?

Only change CPU is sufficient

Pricewise I don't think that it is worth; these processors still sell for an avarage of $45.
The Optiplex did get a little faster though, but I was coming from an E6550 :P

You don't need to reinstall, just replace the CPU and you're good.

Q9550 - $32

Optiplex 790 i5 Core - $95

Worth an extra $30 for quad core upgrade? Just my opinion, no.

10.13.4 release (17E199) is running fine on my 790. Did not update the 755 yet, since that one is unplugged ATM. Will do that tomorrow :)

Pretty trouble free install to 10.13.4.

Takes 2 or 3 seconds longer to boot now.

Time for a faster CPU. lol

Was surprised that nightshift was still working without edits.

Ok so, a couple of days ago I had issues updating the 755 to DP7. After 7 attempts (read: removing the "/macOS Install Data/" folder and redownloading the update 7 times) the update finally went through. I assumed it was because of the data being corrupted one way or another.

Well, Yesterday I tried to update to 17E199 and the exact same thing happened; installation failed with the exact same reason: "archive verify failed"
So I just wiped the complete harddisk, hooked it up on USB, ran "startosinstall", boot.efi did not get copied over so it would not boot.

created a 16GB HFS+ partition, used "createmediainstall" to put the installer on that partition, booted it, first stage went fine but at second stage it fails again with "archive verify failed".

If I'd install macOS on that harddrive via the 790, then put the drive back in the 755 I'm sure it'll just run fine; but I'm wondering why the installation (either appstore update or fresh install) fails.
 

I'd say maybe it's my EFI

So i removed nvram.plist, removed .IAProductInfo (or something like that) and rerun the installer.
The installer ran very, very slow. From booting the installer to finishment it took 3 hours (!), but at least it's installed now and works as it should.

I need to investigate this problem more, because I'm quite sure I'll run into this problem again once a new update is out.

I tried this on my Optiplex 755 USFF, 10.12 works fine but not 10.13.

The High Sierra installer simply doesn't show up in Clover on my USB-Drive, can you help me?

Hi !

I tried your guide, HS Installer boot (after adding apfs.efi and few command on the terminal), but when I get to the macOS Utilities, It get stuck there, I can click the Continue button, but no matter which option I choose, it stuck at "macOS Utilities", nothing appear, Terminal won't open, neither Disk Utility or Safari.

What can I do about it ? It does the same thing with Sierra, I tried with different USB stick, but it does the same..

Dell Optiplex 780 SFF, latest BIOS, Core 2 Duo E8400, Radeon HD 5450 1GB, latest Clover EFI r4411, and latest macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 installer.

Thanks a lot :/

I used to have this issue too. What did it for me was going back to language chooser, select the language and then move forward from there.

I don't have the language chooser, it directly go to the macOS Utilities :/

But I'll reboot to the installer and see if there's a way I can go the language chooser

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      So I FINALLY got my High Sierra thumb drive to boot and once I got to the language selection screen, I noticed I lost all connectivity to my keyboard and mouse.
       
      i tried plugging in both into all of my USB ports (2.0, 3.0, 3.1) to no avail.
       
      i made sure I had the latest USBInject kext and XHCI-Unsupported kext in the Other folder.
       
      i also noticed whilst troubleshooting, the thumb drive will ONLY boot using Verbose and plugged into one of the 2 3.1 ports.
       
      does anyone have ANY suggestions?? I’ve been struggling for a week now on this!!
       
      thanks in advance
       
      -Sin

      Buongiorno a tutti,
      E la prima volta che scrivo su questo forum, spero di non sbagliare nulla!
      Scrivo qua sperando che qualcuno di voi possa darmi una grossa mano, perchè ho letto di tutto, visto qualsiasi video possibile, ma non riesco proprio ad uscirne fuori.
      Ci avevo già provato 3 anni fa, ma ero riuscito solo su un notebook Sony, sul fisso non ero riuscito a fare nulla. Dicevano che c'erano problemi con i driver della serie Skylake, così ho voluto riprovare ora a distanza di anni.
      Premetto che non sono un informatico, non ho conoscenze particolari. Sono semplicemente un ragazzo che si informa, legge tutorial ed esegue, quindi chissà che la soluzione non sia in realtà una banale sciocchezza.
       
      Dunque, il problema consiste nel fatto che, in circa 8 ore di prove, non sia ancora riuscito ad andare oltre il caricamento del logo, dopo aver selezionato la chiavetta da clover.
      Sto cercando di installare High Sierra, ho provato con una chiavetta con un programma che non ho capito bene perchè, ma non posso scriverlo qui, e una con Clover Configurator (che tra l'altro, nella schermata boot mi da un'interfaccia diversa da quella che ho visto nel tutorial, o anche solo 3 anni prima), ma il problema è sempre lo stesso: dopo circa metà caricamento, o mi esce il simbolo di divieto, o si riavvia il computer, riportandomi nel boot di clover.
      Ho provato un po' di flags, come -v, -x, -s, -f, nv_disable=1 (tra l'altro, per evitare problemi al principio, ho impostato la scheda video di intel come primaria), cpus=1, dart=0, Slide=0, insomma, qualsiasi cosa leggessi in giro che avesse portato esiti positivi, la provavo
      Ho provato su porte sub 3.0, 2.0 e le 2.0 dietro al pc.
      Penso sia irrilevante, ma nel caso, sto usando una chiavetta da 32 gb.

      Nella firma dovrebbero esserci tutte le specifiche del mio PC, non so se debba postare altro. Nel caso scusatemi, ditemi pure cosa manca che la aggiorno.
      Spero davvero che qualcuno di voi possa aiutarmi. Ho un MacBook Air (High Sierra l'ho scaricato da qui) e ho scoperto quanto sia più affidabile usare Final Cut rispetto a quel bug chiamato Premiére Pro che ho usato per anni, e vorrei poterlo usare anche sul fisso, senza dover acquistare un iMac. Ho letto in giro che con Mojave non è supportata l'accelerazione grafica, per questo vorrei installare High Sierra.

      Grazie mille a chiunque vorrà aiutarmi!
