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

      *REUPLOADED updated CLOVER folder, attached as "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip" (uploaded to OSXLatitude forum, can't upload here).
       
      I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide:
       
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive):
      1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 
      2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,
      3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
      1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.
      2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.
      3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image.
      4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.
      5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT!
      6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above.
      7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found)
      It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):

      Opa gente!
      Ontem fiz uma instalação do Mac Os High Sierra em minha maquina, um I5 4440 + GTX 970, o finalizar a instalação resolvi conectar meu segundo monitor na saida de video da placa mãe (HD Graphics 4600) reiniciei a maquina e ativei a HD Graphics. Os monitores funcionam porem ao usar o Chrome, por exemplo, quando uma lista de sugestão de pesquisa aparece, ela apresenta diversos bugs graficos, chuviscos e artefatos no local onde deveria estar a lista.
      Obs: Ao usar apenas a GTX 970 ou somente a HD Graphics estes problemas não ocorrem.
