I successfully installed Mojave but i could not get graphics working so i decided to roll back to High Sierra.

 

So i am currently running on Mojave and i get an error of 

Please switch to XPC or bootstrap_check_in () com.apple.bsd.dirhelper 

while installing through USB using clover. 

 

 

I attaching the image and clover zip file 

 

 

Earlier i had issue of waiting for DSMOS... but i fixed it using FakeSMC.kext on clover as well as installer USB ... (i felt worth mentioning)

That's juts a warning and you can ignore it. If booting does not get beyond that point, it's because your Clover setup is incorrect: ACPI patching, CPU power management, Kernel & Kext Patches, SMBIOS, ...

 

User Clover Configurator app to adjust your settings.

 

Oh, and since it's a desktop, not a laptop, you should add a supported graphics card. There are entry-level cards <50 $/€ that will do fine such as, say, Kepler-based Nvidia GT710.

Is graphic card necessary for installation and will stock clover do the installation ?

You should be able to install but I expect you'd then run without graphics support.

But then in  which version will the graphics be supported ? Or if I installed this then will there be frame drop like in Mojave ? Thanks for your support ...:thumbsup_anim:

Apple manufactured 3 lines of iMac with Clarkdale CPU: iMac11,1, iMac11,2 and iMac11,3.

 

If you look at the specs of these models on everymac.com, you'll see that all only run on discrete graphics cards (AMD Radeon HD 4xxx or 5xxx).

 

If you have looked at the Bible thread on 1st gen Intel HD graphics, you must have seen it applied only to laptops, not desktops. I don't know the device id(s) of Clarkdale's iGPUs but if they do not match those of the Arrandale (and I expect them to be different), it's fair to say they're not supported. Only the MacBookPro6,x used 1st gen Intel HD graphics (as part of a dual GPU arrangement). If you look at the IntelHDGraphicsFB kext (the 1st gen Intel HD graphics framebuffer), you'll see that, as stated in the aforementioned Bible thread, the only 2 x 1st gen Intel HD iGPUs that are supported are 8086:0042 and 8086:0046.

 

You shouldn't have any hesitation and opt for an add-on graphics card.

No, without a supported graphics card, the Hack will be slow and you'll experience all sorts of graphics corruption. This will make your Hack unusable. You need a graphics card, there is no way around this. Save your pocket money and for about 30€/$/£, get yourself a GT710.

Choice is more limited with Mojave because of the switch to Metal.

 

In High Sierra, older AMD and nVidia cards remain supported. Not all of course but a much wider choice. For instance some old Tesla generation nVidia cards still fully work like GeForce G210 or even older G86-based cards like Geforce 8400/8500/8600/9400, etc.

Look for 2nd-hand cards.

Well, since Clarkdale iGPUs appear to carry the id 8086:0042, you're good to go according to the Bible for 1st gen Intel HD graphics.

 

Good luck.

Hey I have successfully installed High Sierra after long struggle ...

Still stuck in graphics... Please tell whether I should use HDMI or D Sub cable and yes which Frame Buffer ? 

Should I patch V BIOS using Clover Configuration ? And should I use legacy folder of Sierra(mentioned in Bible ) on High Sierra ?

      I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.

      I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?

      I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.

      Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it)
      Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version?
      If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases
      Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?

      Will it be better to use OpenCore?

      Specs:
      Mortar Max B450M
      Ryzen 2600x
      Nvidia GTX 1060
      16gb DDR4 2400mhz
