So I have some less powerful hardware, that's why I'm installing High Sierra in 2020. Anyway, I'm trying to boot from the USB and I get the following errors:
00:000 00:000 OCB: Missing DMG signature, aborting
00:585 00:585 OCB: LoadImage failed - Unsupported
That's it. The logs begin and end there. The rest of the file is zeroes.
Note: I used SSDTTime to make the DSDT dumps for this exact computer
Intel Core i3 (Haswell)
An Intel VGA-Compatible Haswell iGPU
An nVidia Geforce 920m GPU (part of the reason for installing High Sierra)
USB: Intel 8 Series USB xHCI HC
SATA: Intel 8 series SATA Controller
If you need more details, here's my laptop https://www.asus.com/Laptops/X540LJ/ . I have the 512GB version with 4GB of RAM
I found a lot of forum posts about people having the same error, except nothing solved mine. Also, I haven't found anything online about the error with the Missing DMG Signature.
EDIT: If anybody needs my config.plist, feel free to ask for it and I'll happily post it
I have stumbled on some confusion regarding the controllers on the M.2 NVMe's, where i've read that some of them are not very reliable.
As i am not much familiar with them, i would like to ask you guys for:
Good options for a M.2 NVMe (PCIe) SSD in 2280 format with the best compatibility in mind. Capacity and speed are really not that important, as i will use it on a Skylake Laptop (i5-6200U), so anything upgrading from my current M.2 SATA will be a nice boost. This is where i am planning to load macOS at.
Any option for a M.2 NVMe (PCIe) SSD in 2242 format. I have a spare M.2 interface where a WWAN card was supposed to be, only for the 2242 format. While it supports only PCIe x1, i plan to load Windows 10 on it. Asking just in case if there are better options "controller" wise, as there doesnt seem to be much brands doing them.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: just noticed the sticky thread. I really thought i was on the right place.
I'm trying to upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra. My Sierra is working and booting great with the latest Clover 5.0 r5115, but when trying to upgrade to High Sierra, any time the computer reboots into the installer, it gets stuck at the line "Start ReadKernelCache". The screenshot is attached. I've tried the following troubleshooting steps that I've read in other similar posts, none of which worked. It always remains stuck at that line:
Boot with UseKernelCache=No and/or -x and or -f
Temporarily remove discrete graphics card and try to install with integrated graphics
Add MATS to the Drop Tables list in Clover Configurator
Look for an option similar to "Above 4G Encoding". My motherboard doesn't seem to have that.
Try a bootable USB drive with the High Sierra installer instead of the App Store mechanism. The USB boots great, and I can initiate the installation, but upon reboot, I get the same issue trying to boot into the installer.
Disable integrated graphics in the motherboard's BIOS
Below are my system details. It seems like it should be possible, based on this post, to run High Sierra with this motherboard and CPU, but I can't get the installer to run.
Thanks for any help!
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5-TH
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K
Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX 970
Clover: 5.0 r5115 with basically no mods from the default ISO aside from enabling APFS driver
ho un hackointosh con i seguenti componenti:
CPU: Intel 6600k
OS: High Sierra
ora voglio passare ad un SSD NVME che ho già acquistato (970 evoplus aggiornato all'ultima versione 2B2QEXM7).
Vorrei installare Catalina da utilizzare con una scheda video integrata e in futuro installare una RX 5700 xt.
Nel frattempo sto cercando di installare Catalina ma quando lancio Clover da USB accedo alla schermata Utilità Mac OS e quando seleziono il disco per installare catalina sul disco M2 torno alla schermata iniziale dell'utility Mac OS.
Vi ringrazio in anticipo, sto impazzendo per risolvere questo problema
