I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system.
For installation I used this Thread.
I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore.
Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080.
My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB)
Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version?
Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ?
About some hints where to start I would be thankful.
OpenCorePkg / Documentation / Configuration Template / Bugtracker
Discussion and installation should be done in a separate thread! This thread is for development only!
Current status as of April 2019:
Support for UEFI and DuetPkg (legacy) booting
APFS and HFS+ compatibility
ACPI patcher (adding, dropping, binary patching, relocation)
Apple-compatible bless implementation
DataHub and SMBIOS generation
Symbolic kext and kernel patcher
Direct kext injection/patching/blocking within prelinkedkernel
Installation/Recovery/FileVault 2 support
Configuration in config.plist with open documentation
Simple boot picker for quick launch
Direct boot from dmg images
Known defects live here.
For those, who are not familiar with the history, OpenCore is a project initially born in HermitCrabs Lab that unfortunately almost died before its birth. This release is both a rebirth and a complete rewrite of OpenCore, which brings a number of new ideas, and tries to preserve the smart moves incorporated by iNDi and his team. Other than that, I wish to express my deepest words of gratitude to Acidanthera and WWHC members: your participation was and remains the key for project success, and you are simply the best.
after years I come back to Hackintosh. In the early days I played with ozmosis and my good old 4700k. Now I'm back and worked around a 100% working setup with enough power to get me through all my tasks like audio, video cut etc.
In this short tutorial I will guide you through BIOS Settings and give you access to my EFI Folder. This I do because I haven't found anything on the web for my setup. Maybe it will help some of you. When you follow the steps you will have a perfect running Hackintosh like I do have now
I've chosen the iMac 18,3 because of the easy integration of both Graphic Units and the support of HEVC.
CPU: Intel i7 9700k (Overclocked in Bios to 4,7 GHz)
SMBIOS: iMac18,3 (Because of Dedicated Graphics and HEVC Intel Support)
RAM: 32GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3200 DIMM CL16 (XMP Profile to 3200MHz)
Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON (MS-7b17) <- It's the model without WLAN/Bluetooth
Graphic Card: Sapphire RX580 Nitro+
Bluetooth & WLAN: Broadcom Card in PCI Adapter
What is working:
Almost everything! All USB Ports, Intel Power Management, Bluetooth, WLAN, LAN, Intel Graphics HEVC, Boot/Reboot, Sleep
What is not working:
Facetime & iMessage (Don't need it but I will come back to this)
1. Create Mojave 10.14.5 USB Drive | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CZDXxKfodE&t=95s | Us this tutorial or search the forum
2. Load my EFI Folder: https://workupload.com/file/zkJ4zdQk
3. Go into your bios and use my settings in the Screenshot I attached
4. Boot from USB Stick | Install Mojave | Boot into Mojave (Check other Tutorials if you don't know how)
5. Generate Serials with Clover Configurator
6. Happy Hackintosh Life!

If you have success with my little tutorial and EFI Build let me know! Hope you reach the desktop and will be happy!
Can I propose a new subforum be created for the new OpenCorePkg OpenCore front end being created by vit9696 and others, it is a fantastic piece of work:
Even at version 0.1 it runs my Mojave 10.14.4 setup very nearly flawlessly. It consists of a 10KB bootstrap BootX64.efi and a 200KB OpenCore.efi OS loader. All configuration is done using a very well documented config.plist
A tool for creating and editing OpenCore configuration files. It's still in a very early stage, so if you find bugs, please let me know.
Important note: Always keep a backup of your current config before opening it with this program. This is alpha software, stuff may break!
Auto-add entries for ACPI files in OC/ACPI/Custom
Auto-add entries for kexts in OC/Kexts
Sort kexts, ACPI files, ACPI patches and Kernel patches
Generate SMBIOS with macserial
EFI partition mounter
Paste ACPI patches in plist format (Clover or OC patches)
convert clover config.plist into OC format
In-app updater (OCC and macserial)
File > new does not work yet (opens, but crashes on save)
Some malformed configs may still cause the program to crash. If that is the case, please upload that config so I can fix the issue
