[Help] Upgrade High Sierra (to??)


36 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

Hackintosh High sierra has never let me down over the years. I just think it's time to update it to use new software ...

What should I do to update it? (bootloader is clover)
do I have to format everything and start over or can I use what I have?

 

But above all which version do you recommend me to switch to with my configuration:

 

i7-8700K     Asus Rog Strix z370-E      Coolermaster Seidon 120mm c3 plus     Asus rog rx 560 O4G Gaming     Hd Western Digital Black 1TB     M.2 Nvme Samsung 960 Evo 250GB     DVD-Rw LG-GH24NSD1     Evga g3 Super Nova 750W 80+ Gold     G-Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZ     Zalman Z9 Neo White Case

 

 

thank you in advance 🙂

I think your hardware will work fine in Ventura. Just update Clover to 5150.

thank you for response,

 

I know this is a somewhat peculiar question... But what is the likelihood that Ventura will work?

do you say everything will work, or will I have to replace hardware? 
because I would like to avoid spending any more money for hardware 😅

I just see many reports on the forum and this hardware is always full compatible with Ventura.

You probably have to make new tuning of boot process according to new system and new bootloader possibilities.

Ok, to update clover to version 5150, what is the correct procedure?

(It's been over four years, and I wouldn't want to be wrong because I think I've forgotten)

 

and after updating cloover can I update mac os directly from the appstore?

 

Thank You

Be sure your config.plist is similar to revision 5150. You may upload it here for me to check. Or just check it by CloverConfigPlistValidator_5150.

May be you need additional SSDT-PMC, put it to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ folder

 

 

SSDT-PMC.aml.zip

Try Clover-5150-EFI.zip ... copy your SSDTs to CLOVER > ACPI > patched ( including the one mentioned by Slice if it's not there you have it ) 

 

The drivers are already there

 

Kests are ok (in case add the network one you use) in CLOVER > kexts > Other

 

The Tools folder is ok

 

If you use any theme copy it in CLOVER > themes

 

Finally copy your config.plist in CLOVER ... configuring the Booter and Kernel Quirks (IF YOU USE CLOVER CONFIGURATOR MAKE SURE IT IS UPDATED)

Verify the plist with CloverConfigPlistValidator_5150.zip 

 

rename Clover-5150-EFI > EFI

 

Try booting maybe from a bootable usb...if that works copy the EFI to the disk

thank you for the answer,

 

kindly, what is the actual method to create an UEFI usb,
I have to go with the command from the terminal,

Unfortunately it's been a long time since I made hackintosh...
Thank you in advance 🙂

I opened cloverconfigplistvalidator 5150 but it seems he did not give me any answer regarding the verification ... what should I do?

the terminal opens with written only logout, saving, copying .. etc .. but I don't read any checks

?

Open the terminal drag in the validator below the plist ... enter
If everything is ok you should have this as output

 

Your plist looks so wonderful. Well done!

 

Regarding the usb, if it's just to try the new updated EFI on the fly, you can format it as I indicated
If you want to do a clean install with the full installer etc. follow Slice's instructions

ok thanks, this is what it gives me:

what should I do?

Very simple. Just see the messages.

DropOEM_DSM in the section ACPI->DSDT not more exists. Use rename _DSM -> ZDSM

The key "Log" is the section Boot is replaced now to key "Debug".

 

The key KernelCpu in the section KernelAndKextPatches is obsolete. You don't need it so just erase it.

 

Search <string>yes</string> and replace it to <true/>

Thats all for migration.
