Which Clover revision did you try and how did you install Clover?  Versions r4541 to r4639 had a bug that caused failure to install boot0 to the MBR ---> boot failure in legacy mode.  Release 4644 has fixed this.

 

If your system supports UEFI booting, did you try disabling CSM in BIOS and make sure you have an aptio fix driver eg AptioMemoryFix-64.efi in /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI?

 

Failing this, there is a guide in Voldemort's forum on how to edit plist files inside AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext and AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext.  Google "Enabling HD 3000 graphics on 7-series motherboards".  You will need to prepare an installer USB using the old "restore BaseSystem.dmg" method, not createinstallmedia.

That is interesting, I've used the latest three versions I could find, however I used an old version from a 3 year old boot stick I made for my desktop once (just for testing) , I also used the last release of a 32bit loader. Nevertheless, I'll try the latest version and also look into modifying  AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext and AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext.

Thank you for the latter, after constant reading up on this I had a feeling I'd have to do this, but I was curious how to do it with an installer USB. 

Will update you when I have more news

There's a reason you're a guru!

Thank you so much for yours and everyones help I've reached the installer!

I'm getting a macos could not be installed notice now, so it's time to play with SMBIOS.plist I assume? 

With a Sandy Bridge CPU and a 7 Series Chipset, I'm thinking Macbook 8,1 would be the go to?

Many Thanks again :)

Closest SMBIOS for your hardware is probably MacBookPro8,1 (late 2011, i5 SandyBridge 2435M with HD3000 graphics) ---> OK for Sierra & High Sierra. 

 

If you want to try the latest macOS Mojave, you can try with MacBookPro9,2 SMBIOS (mid 2012, IvyBridge i5 3210M with HD4000 graphics).  This would require adding Sierra kexts for HD3000  for full QE/CI graphics acceleration :).

Installer Log 08-16-18.txt

 

Using Clover or Chameleon?

 

Your installer log shows your SMBIOS is set incorrectly to MacBookPro4,1...need to set to MacBookPro8,1...

 

Aug 16 00:20:03 MacBook-Pro OSInstaller[486]: Hardware: MacBookPro4,1 @ 2.49 GHz (x 4), 4096 MB RAM

Note MacBook is also not the same as MacBookPro.

(On a tangent : I have also tried the latest version of Clover, still black screen, no verbose. Raised a ticket on sourceforge, hoping to see if any of the devs can discuss.)

 

Chameleon Wizard should be OK to generate a valid MBP8,1 SMBIOS.plist, but is it being saved in the correct location? 

Spoiler

Make sure there is only one /Extra folder in your system (any other hfs or EFI volumes or disks with /Extra?.  Look for stray SMBIOS.plist using MBP4,1).  May want to check boot log (bdmesg) to see if correct /Extra/SMBIOS.plist is being used.

 

Personally, I haven't used Chameleon for a few years and prefer Clover.  Did you try with @Rehabman's config_HD3000_1366x768_7series.plist ---> rename config.plist and place in /EFI/EFI/CLOVER?  Did you try UEFI with/without CSM &/or legacy?  At Clover Main Menu, did you select the installer USB with arrow keys and press <spacebar> to access verbose mode in the submenu...?

 

Spoiler

Maybe try booting with attached Clover r4649.pkg (compiled with gcc, official builds on SourceForge are compiled with XCODE8).

I think I'll sit with Sierra for a while, as my desktop hackintosh and MacBook Pro are the same then, however I'll move up once I've had a break, this laptop hack journey is a rollercoaster!

UPDATE: I have a suspicion it's to do with the OSINstall.mkpg file. 
I did some testing with this file by double clicking it inside the downloaded Sierra installer, and it open. 
Doubled clicked the one I copied over to my USB stick, and I get an invalid certificate error. 
Would this be relevant?

I've never tried Macbook plists, my words above were in error, definitely picked MacbookPro 8,1, and 14,2

A user named @anmool has managed to get High Sierra running on his Lifebook AH512/FJNBB29/Corei3-2328M/HD3000.  His Clover config (attached) was posted on Voldemort's forum and installed in legacy mode - should hopefully work for you also (no guarantees though)...

Check the SHA1 checksum of your downloaded "Install macOS Sierra.app" at this website.  You can actually make a patched installer USB that will allow installation with MBP4,1 SMBIOS with @dosdude 's macOS Sierra Patch Tool.

With the Patched Installer + Enoch, I can get into Installer and Begin installation.

However it cuts out halfway through with the following error : "Request Failed To Initialize."

 

Sometimes happens if target disk or installer has corrupted sectors.

 

Erase and reformat target drive as GUID, macOS extended/journaled in Disk Utility.  To be safe, reformat & remake your installer on different USB or separate partition on hard drive (approx 10GB).

Sadly (and oddly enough) still boots to black screen system hang. I've tried countless USB Sticks and Hard drivess, BIOS configs, with/without hard drive. Reset BIOS, update BIOS, reset CMOS. I've looked and asked into this system hang on a few forums and subreddits, and I did try to add a support ticket over on Sourceforge regarding the system hang, if it's a bug or a config issue.  Unfortunately support is not something they specialise in, I think Enoch is better to focus on.

My download is 139ef35e4af0da8286b2a3af326cb114d774f606, which matches 10.12.0.
It's most likely due to me not using createinstall media as I needed to change AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext and AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext to work with my Sandy Bridge / Series 7 combination.  

I'm looking at the Sierra Patch Tool, I can't get into using it until tonight (busy weekend), however, if this using createinstallmedia, I'll might be pushed back a step.

make sure you have latest Bios installed and retry recommandation here ➤ My POST

this is suppose to work

Up to version 1.21, still the same Chris1111.
I'm out of ideas with Clover, I think it's a dead horse at this point.

Hi All,

Following the extra update to the BIOS I forgot to try legacy Clover again. 

This time around it worked! I have reached verbose!

I'm currently on the vanilla (CreateInstallMedia method) Sierra installer hoping it goes through smoothly!

Thank you everyone for your help, will update when there's more news!

 

If this helps anyone in the  future, I've gotten this far with the attached Clover setup, I've had to boot in safe mode to avoid a busy timeout IGPU error.

CLOVER.zip

 

UPDATE: INSTALL WAS A SUCCESS! THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP. 
I was dead close to getting rid of this laptop. I was losing the will to keep going. 


I'm going to start a post-install thread soon to try and comb out the lovely boot errors I have now.

      Uno dei tre Requisiti:
      Hack funzionante Mac vero Macchina virtuale Impostazioni Bios per il boot:
      Cercate una voce  del tipo “Sata Mode”e settatela  in AHCI
      Secure Boot: disabilitare o altri sistemi operativi
      CSM: UEFI o LEGACY, oppure a secondo del tipo di installazione
      VT-x / VT-d disable
      *Nota: Secure boot e csm valido solo per bios UEFI
      Materiale Occorrente 
      "OS X (Versione App.Store)”
      USB 8GB  *nota: nel caso di usb superiori dovrà essere partizionata, in modo da avere una partizione su cui "lavoreremo,di questa dimensione
      ShowAllfiles 
      kext Wizard 
      Bootloader Clover_2.3k_r xxx:                   http: //sourceforge.n.../cloverefiboot/
      Clover Configurator:                                    http: //mackie100proj...a.org/download/

      In allegato,a fondo pagina troverete un "pacchetto" contenente : ShowAllfiles, Kext Wizard, FakeSmc.kext: 
      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.
      Immagine 
      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  selezionate OsxAptioFixDrv-64
                             *  :Se nel vostro sistema è presente una scheda grafica (discreta) della serie 9xx nVidia selezionate OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 al posto di  OsxAptioFixDrv-64 *
      ** OsxAptioFix2Drv :E' necessario per poter impostare CsrActiveConfig= 0x3 **
      ***OsxAptioFix3Drv oppure AptioMemory --> (consigliato) devono essere usati su hardware Skylake o successivi perché permettono alla nvram di lavorare correttamente
           (mi raccomando o uno o l'altro)
      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      Immagine 
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       
       
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)

      @insanelyDeepak, I would like to try cloverHDA, but I need help understanding how to use it.
       
      I have an Asus laptop that uses Realtek ALC295.
       
      My questions with regard to using cloverHDA:
      1.  I am running High Sierra (10.13.6). Is cloverHDA directly compatible? If not, can it easily be made compatible with adjustments I can apply?
       
      2.  What needs to be done with the original AppleHDA.kext that is already present in /S/L/E? Should it be left alone? Should it be removed? If it is removed, does the AppleHDA.kext that comes with cloverHDA, for example /Vanilla AppleHDA/Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6/AppleHDA.kext, need to be installed in its place?
       
      3.  In the 21 aug 18 reply to TessereKt, you mentioned "there is ALCPluxfix must install this." I noticed that there is a directory for alc_fix in one ALC295 directory (the ALC295_v2 Asus UX430UA directory) but not in the other ALC 295 directory that is provided (the ALC295/3254 directory). In which situation(s) is ALCPlugFix required?
       
      4.  My pathmaps are somewhat different from those in the cloverHDA.kext. Is there an easy way for me to customize the kext? For example, if I just switch the values in the xml files, will that be enough? Or does the whole thing then need to be recompiled?
       
      needed pathmaps:
      33-2
      23-3
      7-36-18
      9-34-19
       
      (My highest priority for the moment is getting headphone working, which is 33-2, and I might even be able to use the 33-3 that is already included. But I would like to eventually get all of them working.)

      I’ve succesfull installed Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 on my Asus G73sw.
      Specifications:
      - Intel 2630QM-I7 / HM65
      - Nvidia Geforce GTX460m

       So what is needed to install Sierra on a Asus G73sw?
      1)       Install Clover with Mac OS Sierra on a bootable USB
      2)       Copy FakeSMC.kext , USBInjectAll.kext and VoodooPS2Controller to USB\EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\ folder
      3)       Copy HFSPlus-64 , CsmVideoDxe-64 (needed full resolution in Clover) and OsxAptioFixDrv-64 to USB\EFI\CLOVER\drivers64UEFI\ folder
      4)       Install Mac OS Sierra
       
      After the installation you reach the desktop.

      FIRST install Clover with the following settings:
                      - Installation for UEFI motherboards
                      - Install Clover in the ESP
                      - Drivers64UEFI -> OsxAptioFixDrv-64
                      - Drivers64UEFI -> CsmVideoDxe-64
                      - Install RC scripts on targetvolume
                      - Install Clover preference panel
       
      Copy HFSPlus-64 to EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ folder
       
      After that, install the following kexts with your favorite kext installer:

                      - FakeSMC.kext                    ->            Always needed
                      - VoodooPS2Controller          ->            Needed to use your keyboard
                      - USBInjectAll                      ->            Needed to use USB2.0 ports
                      - ACPIBatteryManager          ->            Shows batterystatus
                      - AsusNBFnKeys                  ->            Needed to use FN keys
                      - AppleALC + Lilu                ->            Needed to get audio working
                      - RealtekRTL8111               ->            Needed to get LAN working (can’t test, LAN card defect)
       
      As last, copy the DSDT (many thanks to MaLd0n for creating the DSDT file) file to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/
       
      Reboot and see what is working:
       
      -          Nvidia Geforce GTX460m         ->            Config.plist
      -          Wifi                                       ->            DSDT
      -          Audio                                    ->            DSDT + AppleALC + Lilu
      -          USB2.0                                  ->            USBInjectall
      -          Batterypercentage                  ->            DSDT
      -          Asus FN keys                         ->            AsusNBFnKeys
       
      And what is not working:
       
      -          USB3.0 (Fresco Logic xHCI(USB3))
      -          Keyboard backlight
      -          Brightness FN key
      -          Cardreader
      -          Bluetooth
       
      As last, I’m unable to generate a SSDT with ssdtPRGen.sh from Piker-Alpha. I’ve got the following error (see attached picture):
       
      The MacBookPro10,1 SMBios has an board-ID that is not compatible with my Sandy Bridge laptop. So I tried a few things:
      -          Change the SMBios to MacBookPro8,2
                 Reboot -> Black screen
      -          Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and add the below to KextToPatch
                 com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
                 BA050000 00
                 BA000000 00
                 Prevent AGDP from loading
                 Reboot -> Apple bar won’t load
      -         Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and changed productname to iMac13,2
                Reboot -> Apple bar load but get a blackscreen
      -         Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and changed productname to iMac13,2 and add the below to KextToPatch
                 com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
                 BA050000 00
                 BA000000 00
                 Prevent AGDP from loading
                Reboot -> laptop boots good
       
      With the MacBookPro8,2 SMBIOS and the changed productname I’m still unable to generate an SSDT.
       
      So, can someone help me to:
       
      -          Generate a correct SSDT
      -          Get USB3.0 working
      -          Get Keyboard backlight working
      -          Get Brightness FN key working
      -          Get Cardreader working
      -          Get Bluetooth working
