HP EliteDesk 800 g1 SFF macOS Sierra


9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



Few days back I had bought HP Elite Desk 800 g1 workstation and its config. is:


Intel Q87 Chipset motherboard

Intel core i5 4570s processor

4gb DDR3 ram

500gb hdd

4gb GTX 1050 TI OC LP


In this machine I successfully installed macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29). But I'm getting an error in verbose mode like some contagious file. Also I'm getting an error of shutdown. I have attached the screenshot of the same. I have also recorded the video and its url is : 

You may see it at 0:40 seconds. Later on when whole process get completed then I get an error of shut down "You shut down  your computer because of a problem." Again and again I'm getting this error on every restart. If I'm somewhere wrong for any kext or any other thing for that, here is my EFI folder (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1k-MSKSHXK9TL3WOBPZj6O789jBau7kWx). Also I have attached my config.plist file. Audio is working, but didn't recognised the device. About this Mac is also showing details properly.


Please help me out it would be grateful and appreciated

just looking at your kexts, you have way more then needed, always start with the minimal kexts and make sure you have the latest versions.


Below is the Cover folder from my HP 800 G1 SFF

Thanks @Donw35 & @Hervé


I have freshly installed macOS High Sierra (17G11023) on newly purchased WD SSD 240GB , I followed your instruction as you mentioned in your first post i.e. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/323180-catalina-mojave-high-sierra-on-hp-800-g1-usdtsff-and-tower-pcs/ , also I have installed few drivers to efi folder and it let me boot ssd (macOS), Now I'm getting some error ( this is an unknown CPU model 0x3a --Power management may be incomplete or unsupported" ) also usb 3.0 isn't working. if I'm again wrong somewhere then please let me know. Orels if you can provide me your efi folder earlier one for Sierra or High Sierra it would be best for me. I have done few mackintosh on gigabyte motherboards but due to this machine I'm stucked. Im attaching the screenshot and efi folder too & this is my new efi folder link https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Xz53AfQN28uFubt9r0l_iNaYX9e1Z3l5


Please help it would be really appreciated.


Thanks Once Again. @Donw35 & @Hervé

If you have a bog standard Haswell platform -and I believe you do-, you should not require any specific kexts to obtain USB3 support. All you need is to inject Darwin as Windows2006 (Vista) or Windows2009 (Win7) through DSDT patch or apply FixDarwin7 ACPI patch in Clover. rufus
