Hello everyone,

 

I was able to install macOS Sierra 10.12.6 a few months ago successfully with working audio, internet, etc.

 

But now I want to upgrade to High Sierra and am not sure whether or not it will be compatible with my system. (Tried to do it using a High Sierra USB. Wouldn't boot into installer, showed "+++++++++++++" or something.)

 

My specs are:

Dell Optiplex 3010

Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz (HD2500 Integrated Graphics)

4GB of RAM

NVIDIA Quadro FX1800 (Want to use this GPU, have an extra Radeon HD7470 somewhere that I can also use in this if needed)

Conexant CX20641 Audio

Realtek RTL8111E Ethernet

 

So, can I upgrade to High Sierra? Please let me know.

 

EDIT: I kept getting this error: (See attached image)

 

Thanks

Hello @Discount_Mac,

 

I cannot answer your question, but I have the same Optiplex 3010 with the same specs and I also want to install Sierra or El Capitan on it.

 

Could you please give me a detailed guide of how you did the process and which kexts you needed, etc.?

 

Thanks!

EC definitely works on this machine (as I am using it on one)

Last time I installed it, version: v2.3k r3922 EFI bootloader

 

+++++++++++++ on boot means you missing .efi drivers

 

Attached .plist is probably far from perfect, but it did work for me with at that time

 

10.11\ACPISensors.kext
10.11\AppleIntelE1000e.kext
10.11\AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext
10.11\CPUSensors.kext
10.11\FakeSMC.kext
10.11\IntelMausiEthernet.kext

edit:

Looking at my own reply on TM:

 

Dell Optiplex 3010 (SFF), BIOS A16, usual settings for OS X, latest Clover, booted perfectly fine & installed OK (10.11.3) with files from Optiplex 3020 in thread in Dell Desktops forum at o_s_x_l_a_t_i_t_u_d_e (post #25),
Just had to replace stock 2nd gen CPU with i3-3225 from ebay

I did not get any of the problems described (all works fine, boots from HD, graphics - using nVidia 210, Ethernet)

EDIT
Re-installed 10.11.6, once installed removed the dsdt.aml completely (not for this hardware & in fact not needed). ALL that I tested so far works, VoodooHDA installs/works fine but had to install it THREE times, two KP, 3rd installed ok, updated to latest Security Update 2016-002

      Clover r4961 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4961 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4961-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.
