Hello,

I am attempting to install High Sierra 10.13.6 on my laptop. (DLed high sierra directly from apple) I was able to create a USB drive with clover using this guide:


Guide to fresh installing macOS High Sierra on a Hackintosh (10.13 Update) - Hackintosher
High Sierra is out. Now it’s time to install it on anything but a Mac. The first rig I got to run High Sierra is this cute and tiny silver build with an ASUS motherboard. High Sierra adds some pretty useful features like a log out button. The only downside I’ve noticed so far is that the screen...
hackintosher.com

BIOS on this laptop are pretty basic. No many options but I did the following:

Secure boot: Disabled
wake on LAN : Disable
UEFIBooting
set to Enabled and set Priority over Legacy
Virtualization: Disabled

SMBIOS is set to iMac 17,1

Tried to install with USB 2.0 or 3.0 with no change

I can boot into clover but then when macOS attempts to boot it just hangs at the Apple Logo. There is NO loading bar under the logo. Verbose out SS is attached.

I know I am probably missing something basic. I did read the FAQ on here for laptops.

Any direction would be very helpful. Thanks everyone

Due to my need for an Mac OS machine (school)and a lack of money for a real Mac I am willing to pay/donate for help to get this working.

Try running the installation with only one RAM stick installed. The error shown on the image above is one that is common and the remedy is posted here - https://hackintosher.com/forums/thr...slots-on-a-hackintosh-with-clover-smbios.365/

If you have a laptop then the iMac 17.1 smbios is not correct for your system. You should be using a MacBookPro 13.1 smbios instead.

Have a look at the config.plists created by Rehabman for various intel laptops - https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config

Use his config.plist that matches your HD 520 graphics, as it will have most if not all of the patches and properties for your laptop to work.

Thanks for the reply!

I changed the SMBIOS to macbookpro13.1 and used rehabmans plist "config_HD515_520_530_540.plist". I also added my ram to the SMBIOS (only one stick on this laptop) that being said I get much further in the install! I actually get a loading bar under the apple logo but it seems to crash half way after stalling out for a bit. What information can I provide to help this along? Is there a way to save the verbose output?

Not sure if you can save the verbose output. But a picture of where it is stopping with the new config etc. would be very helpful.

Can you post a copy of your Clover folder, so I can see what else you are using/injecting.

I have had a look at your CLOVER folder and made a number of changes, too many to list at this time!

Try this CLOVER folder and see if it helps.

I was able to install and get up in running!

Issues:
Graphics are a bit buggy. Things kinda trail sometimes especially with the Safari gui

WiFi does not work but the bluetooth does. I have been using a Bluetooth mouse with no issues. Any suggestions? Bluetooth and wifi and on same chip for this laptop.
