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.

is't it strange ? i mean i am just clearing my doubts ... (i would just look for graphic card)

Also tellthecheapest graphic card which would be supported...(i live in india and even GT710 is costly here)

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.

https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/nvidia-g86.g57

 

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 ?

      Hi team,
       
      I'm looking for the best route to achieve this upgrade, so I have been stuck with HS since Nvidia drivers stopped being supported on newer MacOS releases. Now I'm having an AMD 5700 xt on the way and want to plan the upgrade properly. I have added some information below and questions that might help with your recommendation.
       
      Current GPU 1080 ti with Nvidia webdrivers installed. So should I uninstall the webdriver before adding the new GPU? Clover is being used and EFI attached. Any kext must be removed? or parameters adjusted MacOS HS 10.13.6, should I upgrade before using the new GPU? CPU: 9900K Motherboard:ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) Dual Monitors I have a Time machine backup, Do you recommend a fresh install? and If I did, will I be able to restore my data/apps as-is?  
      Please let yourself free to explore further aspects to considers.

      Hi!

      Could anyone help me installing High Sierra on this system?
      I succesfully installed Sierra before on this system with help of Jake Lo (thanks!!), I just wondering if could High sierra possible to installed on this system?
      Boot stopped at this. I'll attach my Clover folder and a picture from boot.
      UEFI enabled, and for skylake I used IntelGraphicsDVMTfixup and IntelGraphicsFixup kexts. My bios is very limited and does not have any option to change dvmt prealloc or anything else.
      Everything works fine on Sierra.
      Here is my system:

      *REUPLOADED updated CLOVER folder, attached as "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip" (uploaded to OSXLatitude forum, can't upload here).
       
      I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide:
       
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive):
      1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 
      2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,
      3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
      1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.
      2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.
      3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image.
      4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.
      5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT!
      6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above.
      7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found)
      It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
