macOS High Sierra - Final Release is out! (17A365)


Allan

The final release of macOS Sierra are available to download.

 

You can download it from App Store.

 

You can consult the list of useful tips created by @fantomas:

Soon we'll have the methods to create a Penboot to all Hacks.

You can use the createinstallmedia, and after the process been concluded just install Clover in your Pendrive. ;)

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled  —nointeraction

EDIT: The list above will be constantly been updated as we got new methods and fixes.

Interesting method  :)  But migrate (Time machine or else) seems to be impossible? Right or not?

 

@Matgen84,

 

Running startosinstall is basically the same as directly running "Install macOS High Sierra.app" but with the option to choose APFS or not.  The same data structure "macOS Install Data" is written to the target drive...

so an upgrade install of an existing HFS+ installation on SSD is possible, without conversion to APFS eg

fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/macSSD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app

where "macSSD" is the target for upgrade, and "Install macOS High Sierra.app" is in the /Applications folder.

 

 

Fusion, just to confirm, with or without the "--converttoapfs NO" parameter, if you're on a HFS+ formatted HDD, it won't get converted to APFS anyway, simply because it's an HDD, right?

 

Yes, the default behavior for HDD upgrade, if parameter not specified, is to keep existing HFS+ (same as for directly running the app - see post#60).

Yes that's correct only SSDs and PCIe Flash Storages will be converted to APFS automatically, although last night I replaced a MacBook Pro's HDD with SSD (non-Apple SSD) and installed the High Sierra but I had to format the SSD to APFS manually. No automatic conversion  :blink:

Hi, I have two questions. Is Enable trim required for SSD? Is RC Scripts Necessary? I have UEFI boot. Thank you

Having trim enable will increase the performance and longevity of you SSD over time. It's better to have it enabled if possible. RC Scripts are not necessary unless you need them (In case of having trouble activating the nVidia Web Driver) you can easily use EmuVaraiableUEFI.efi and if that failed to make the web driver active you might need to use RS Scripts. Of course there are other use for RC Scripts which you can find out in clover discussion thread.

Does the restore BaseSystem method still work with 10.13? Seen a lot of posts using that method with the missing or corrupt OSInstall.mpkg error.

No it doesn't work anymore, only createinstallmedia or startosinstall method works.

 

as @camillionario stated on some systems having the EmuVaraiableUEFI.efi can also cause the OSInstall.mpkg error.

Ahh that's an issue for AMD. Can startosinstall be used to install to another partition/drive?

So if I were to install the Core.pkg how would I point that to another volume? I tried running the OSInstall from Sierra but I don't think it worked correctly as I've noticed some 10.12 files were used.

Hey @chris1111, what's your method to create a USB install media for High Sierra?

 

Your tools are great!  ^_^

 

Thanks

 

See Private message  :)

That'll help out :P My current issue is getting stuck on IOConsole something before the login window. I'm sure it just didn't install correctly.

I personally use the createistallemedia it works pretty much the same as the older BaseSystem method:

 

just use this command:

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled  —nointeraction

I haven't tested the startinstall method yet
