I think after ++++++++++++++ should appear the Clover interface....not sure but I will try to change settings under GUI section.

Select Auto=Yes and try a lower resolution...maybe a 1920x1080, change also theme with embedded (I think the simplest)

0:826  0:000  Using latest BiosVersion from clover
0:826  0:000  BiosVersion: IM183.88Z.0154.B00.1712220135

Dan968.

Will try again with your last suggestion Auto=Yes.

The thing now is that I have so many different config.plist:s so I am quite confused. maybe it's better to stick with one basic?

Why can't I upload????

Isn't it just drag and drop?

But...you are trying to install 10.12.6 with a Xeon-W CPU??? Really???

Then...do you have only one DIMM?? in preboot.log seems that you have only one memory slot occupied

Yes I saw that in the preboot.log earlier today and wasn't really reflecting because I've just made a NEW  install USB after KGP:s skylake guide.

But the fact is that I used the same Install macOS High Sierra.app to upgrade my mac mini and that is after upgrade definitely macOS 10.13.3 (17D2047).

I took out three dim out of four

Sorry, watch better...you are trying HS installer...ok.

Strange for only one DIMM...XEON W is a 4 channels memory CPU....maybe that is not a problem.

to avoid problems with the installer... I usually do so:

with a real Mac I install my OS in a SSD with usb to sata adapter...then I install the EFI with Clover and configure it.

The only problem is that if you want to install the iMac Pro version of HS.... you'll need a real iMac Pro...I think.

No problem.

I've took three of the DIMM:S out when I stripped my rig earlier today. I will put them in again if you think that could be a problem.

I am trying to uplod some pics from my biossettings and my EFI folder but it dosen't work. Any ideas+

Could you post your exact EFI folder and also some Bios setting (cpu/usb/boot section)?

 

@fabiosun

Hi and thanks for your help. 

I took some pics of my bios settings but it's impossible for me to upload. The same with my EFI folder.  I get some error -200.

I need to figure out why upload not working for me.

So do you think that this installer might only works on a real iMac Pro?

This Installer works according to KGP:s guide here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/331658-how-to-build-your-own-imac-pro-successful-buildextended-guide/ so it should work as I understand it.

Try to not concentrate on this guide. You have some working MacMini so download HighSierra from AppStore and make usb for exemple with this app https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/55532/install-disk-creator.

Download last clovers version. Install to USB, copy FakeSMC to kext>other and paste your config.plist.

Ok Matthew82.

I will do that and try again. 

By the way do you know why I can't upload stuff?

Am I making something wrong or isn't its just drag and drop.

Yes, I would create a macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (17D2047) installer....surely most compatible with Xeon-W CPU

But...I think the problem is concerning graphic setup:

from your log: "Custom boot screen not used because entry has unset use graphics"

no chance of getting an AMD video card?

@Dan968

I have a RX Vega 56 and I tried that too with the same result. The reason I don't use that is it get overheated because there is fan issues in HighSierra.

This problem might be solved in the upcoming 10.13.4 version.

I have only permission for small files so I had to convert them to PDF.

My EFI i still to big to upload but I will try again tomorrow. 

Nothing in ACPI folder

Three kext: FakeSMC.kext, SmallTree-Intel-211-AT-PCIe-GBE.kext and TSCAdjustReset.kext

Config.plist: attached

Drivers 64UEFI: The only (in Clover) selected driver is AptioMemoryFix.efi (RC16) + HFSPLUS.efi 

Clover version 4411

try with the attached drivers64UEFI, and config.plist. Remove the SmallTree kext, and disable your network controller in BIOS, and other settings I previously mentioned. Also try a different USB port, as others have suggested.

drivers64UEFI.zip

config.plist

when you stuck at this point, the kernel could not be loaded and causes a panic/halt. 

I know this situation with my X99 system. This happens always when the kernel calls a specific register of your CPU or a resource in Bios/Motherboard.

Did you pinpoint what was wrong. 

Was it a driver some graphics problem or something with your bios?

config.plist

I will start enabling EIST in bios (you have a Xeon) and many guide are done for more consumers or extreme CPU

then I would try with only my config.plist (only one config in clover folder at time)

Then if always stuck in ++++++++ stage I would try my boot loader and drivers64uefi

I think only one from old brumbaer patch or Pikeralpha reboot fix I have added in your config could be useful to pass your hang
