Can someone please help me I had to reinstall like 7 times today trying to find this.. Everything goes great... I do my installing.. I do about 10 or so reboots, shutdowns etc and then BANK this message pops up and I can't do anything but reformat....

"couldn't allocate runtime area"

I am new to this and had a few pros look at it but everything just has me reformat and start over time and tie again..

We try booting with the USB and then going to the drive and we still get the same error.. If we turn off the iGPU sometimes it works.

I believe the fix for this error is to change one of the UEFI drivers. The OsxAptioFixDrv.efi or one of its variants is usually the cause.

Have you tried replacing the current file in your /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder with OsxAptioFixDrv or OsxAptioFix2Drv or OsxAptioFix3Drv.

Or if that doesn't do the trick try nickwoodhams.com OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.
