Guide to fresh installing macOS High Sierra on a Hackintosh (10.13 Update)

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 waking can be a little slower then on Sierra.

If you never built a hackintosh check out our list of compatible parts or the build list for hackintosh friendly parts. Right now this is just a Desktop guide I’ll be experimenting on laptops in the future and update this guide or create another when that happens.

For those that already have a Hackintosh running Sierra and want to upgrade to High Sierra they’d be better served following: Updating your Hackintosh to High Sierra 10.13. If you would like to run Sierra 12.6 instead of High Sierra for reliability, compatibility or whatever reason see: Guide to installing macOS Sierra on a Hackintosh (Up to 10.12.6)

High Sierra Hackintosh Install Full Guide

This is a full install guide that will walk you through clean installing High Sierra on a custom PC. It’ been made easy into a copy paste guide. This means that the initial configuring that’s required to get macOS up and running have already been preconfigured. There may be some post-install changes that need to made after macOS is installed.

Step 1 – Creating the macOS Installer

To begin the setup of a Hackintosh a macOS installer containing High Sierra must be created on a USB flash drive. Learn how to do that by following: How to make a macOS flash drive installer

How to make a USB flash drive installer for macOS

 

Step 2 – Transfer Prebuilt EFI Bootloader

Now that the High Sierra image is on a GUID formatted flash drive the EFI partition of that drive needs to have a modified folder called EFI  added to it. The EFI  folder contains the hackintosh files necessary to boot macOS on third party hardware using Clover Bootloader.

The EFI folder is added to something called the EFI  Partition . To access the EFI Partition we must mount it first:

  1. Download Clover Configurator
  2. Open Clover Configurator
  3. Select Mount EFI under TOOLS
  4. Click Mount Partition for Install macOS….
  5. Click Open Partition (This is your EFI Folder)

Now we are going add the hackintosh EFI folder to the partition  you mounted:

  1. Delete the folder called EFI  in the partition you mounted
  2. Download Hackintosher.com’s High Sierra EFI
  3. Unzip High Sierra EFI.zip
  4. Copy the unzipped EFI folder
  5. Paste the copied EFI into your mounted EFI partition or /Volumes/EFI

Step 3: Configuring config.plist

These mini steps need to only be followed if the conditions applies. It’s recommended that you do the initial install using integrated graphics for a problem free install, however I’ve been able to install High Sierra using my RX 560.

Step 3.1: Non-Kaby Lake users Only

The default config.plist is configured for a Kaby Lake CPU. I also included config’s for Sky Lake and Haswell that contains the necessary ig-platform-id and SMBIOS. If you are using an even older CPU you may need to make your own edits to config.plist

If you are using a Sky Lake or Haswell CPU:

  • Navigate to EFI/CLOVER/
  • Rename config.plist to config-Kabylake.plist
  • Rename config-Haswell.plist or config-Skylake.plist to config.plist
Step 3.2: Pentium users Only

If you are using a Pentium processor such as the G4560/G3258  you will in addition to following this step will need a Nvidia graphics card to run your hackintosh as the integrated iGPU on Pentium CPU’s are not currently supported on Hackintoshes.

  1. Download config-pentium.plist.zip
  2. Unzip it to get config-pentium.plist
  3. Place config-pentium.plist at /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/
  4. Rename config.plist to config-GFX.plist
  5. Rename config-pentium.plist to config.plist
  6. Download NullCPUPowerManagment.zip
  7. Unzip NullCPUPowerManagment
  8. Place NullCPUPowerManagment.kext in the location /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
Step 3.3: MSI Motherboard users Only

MSI motherboards may require this step in order to boot macOS. If you are not using an MSI motherboard please skip this step and move to Step 4.

  1. Download OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi.zip.
  2. Unzip OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi
  3. Navigate to  location /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ of your mounted EFI partition
  4. Paste OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi here
Step 3.4: Gigabyte / ASUS Motherboard users Only

A checkbox needs to be set in your config.plist in order to prevent the computer from restarting instead of properly shutting down. Follow this step only if you have a Gigabyte or ASUS motherboard otherwise move on to Step 4.

  1. Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
  2. Highlight Acpi on left column
  3. Under fixes check FixShutdown
  4. Save config.plist
Step 3.5: ASUS / ASRock / MSI / Motherboard users Only
  1. Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
  2. Highlight Boot on left column
  3. Under Arguments press the drop down arrow next to darkwake
    1. Select darkwake = 1 if using an ASUS motherboard
    2. Select darkwake = 8 if using an ASROCK or MSI motherboard
  4. Save config.plist



Step 4 – Recommended BIOS Settings

Restart your computer and press the DEL key or required key to enter BIOS when computer posts splash screen.

Wit the EFI boot partition setup we now need to change some BIOS settings that are macOS and hackintosh friendly 🙂

Recommendation: Check out the builds section and find a motherboard by the same manufacturer as you have. Then scroll down to it’s BIOS settings to find the exact location of each setting that needs to be changed if your having trouble.

You’re motherboard may not have all of these settings and that’s okay:

Change the following settings:

  1. Virtualization : Enabled
  2. VT-d : Disabled
  3. XHCI Hand-Off : Enabled
  4. Legacy USB Support: Auto/Enabled
  5. IO SerialPort : Disabled
  6. Network Stack : Disabled
  7. XMP Profile :  Auto / Profile 1/Enabled
  8. UEFI Booting set to Enabled and set Priority over Legacy
  9. Secure Boot : Disabled
  10. Fast Boot : Disabled
  11. OS Type: Other OS
  12. Wake on LAN : Disabled

Based on  the GPU you’re using change the following settings:

Dedicated graphics card:

  1. Integrated Graphics : Disabled 
  2. Graphics: PEG/PCIe Slot 1
  3. Initial Display Output : PCIe 1 Slot

Intel iGPU:

  1. Integrated Graphics : Enabled
  2. Graphics: IGD/Integrated/iGPU/CPU Graphics
  3. DVMT Pre-Allocated : 128M

Note: If you set Primary Display to CPU Graphics and DVMT Pre-Allocated setting doesn’t show. Save and exit BIOS and reenter and it should be there

Setting Boot Device:

You’ll want to be using the USB Flash Drive as the primary boot device until your hard drive becomes bootable at the end of Step 6. There are two ways to go about doing this:

Option 1: Press F8/F11/F12 on startup each time to select a temporary boot device until the boot partition on the drive you install macOS is configured. If you want to do temporary booting you will select the version of your USB Drive starting with UEFI: in it’s name. (For example I used a SanDisk flash drive so I would select UEFI: Sandisk, Partition 1)

Option 2: Enter BIOS and set Boot → Boot Option #1: UEFI : XXX (For example I used a SanDisk flash drive so I would select UEFI: Sandisk, Partition 1) This is easier if you don’t want to spam F8 on startup every time to boot macOS.

Set Boot Option #1 ASUS BIOS
This is where you would set the Boot Option in BIOS if you followed Option 2

Press F10 to Save and Exit the BIOS

Step 5 – Installing macOS

The next step is to install macOS and then after copy the EFI folder from your flash drive’s boot partition over to the boot partition of the drive macOS is installed on. If you need to walked through the install follow: High Sierra Clover Install Walkthrough

Note: Most people like to install new versions of macOS using integrated graphics. Since I included the files for AMD cards you may be able to install macOS like I did with the card plugged in. Some people may have trouble installing High Sierra with a Nvidia card plugged in. If you have one you may want to use integrated graphics and go back to the BIOS settings and configure for an iGPU.

Mac OS High Sierra Hackintosh Install Clover Walkthrough

Hackintosh Post-Install

Now that you have macOS up and running you should also be able to access the itnernet since the included Ethernet kexts are already in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other However you may want to delete the ones you don’t need as I included them all.

Step 6 – Improving Sleep

If you don’t want your hackintosh turning on in the middle of the night you need to disable two settings.

  1. Open the Settings App
  2. Click Energy Saver
  3. Uncheck
  4. Uncheck Wake for Ethernet Network access
  5. Uncheck Enable Power Nap

Energy Saver MacOS

Step 7 – Graphics Card

If using a compatible graphics card then you will need to install the fixes to get hardware detection and acceleration.

For AMD I’ve already included the files necessary to get most AMD graphic cards like the RX 560, 570 and 580 working, but there are some extra steps like NVRAM detection and maybe ig-platform-id if using a KabyLake/CoffeeLake CPU that need to be set: How to hackintosh AMD graphics cards in Sierra 10.12.6+

To get Nvidia graphic cards working in High Sierra you need to enable SIP temporarily to prevent being locked out after the Web Drivers install see:

→ How to properly Install Nvidia Drivers on High Sierra 10.13 

Step 8: Hackintosh Sound

I setup the EFI folder for ALC1220 as that’s the most common audio codec used for Kabylake motherboards. If you are using a different audio chipset codec such as ALC892, S1220A, ALC887, ALC1150 then all you need to do is change a single number to get audio working. Click the link below to go to the audio guide:

Read: Hackintosh Audio Guide – Layout ID 

 

Step 9: HDMI Audio

This is an optional step if you want toHDMI audio can be tricky to get working and is much more difficult with a Pascal Nvidia GPU:

IGPU: Hackintosh Integrated Graphics (iGPU) HDMI Audio Guide

I also had a problem with Nvidia drivers. I got a warning message during the installation, then I got stuck on boot. The solution I find in the internet (worked for me): open clover configurator, goto Rt Variables, change CsrActiveConfig value from 0x67 to 0x0, reboot, install Nvidia drivers, reboot, then put CsrActiveConfig value back to 0x67, reboot.

Hi Hackintosher,

Thanks for all those helpful guides.

I’m planning on installing high sierra 10.13 or sierra 10.12.6 (will depend on your answer) with an intel pentium G4600 which is equal to an i3-7100 since both cpus are kaby lake 2 cores 4 threads and use hd630 gpu, do i need to use fakecpuid to boot the install since kaby lake is now fully supported on high sierra and sierra 10.12.6 ?
FYI want to use igpu for now since hd630 is also fully supported.

Hi, I’m building a hackintosh for the very first time. I’ve already bought the Gigabyte GA-Z270M-D3H (it was the only board from your build list available here in Brazil) to follow your specific guide for this board. I should go by that guide just using this new High Sierra USB? Or should I follow this one here?

Yes I was installing with iGPU. My system is MSI Z370M + 8700k CPU installing onto NVME 960 EVO. After some messing around, I was able to get it to install and boot by: 1) Using Latest version of clover bootloader (4225 off the top of my head) 2) SMBIOS 18,3 (and all other appropriate other settings as per this machine level) 3) SMBIOS CHANGES – this was the big thing stopping me from getting a booting installer / system.

Thank You very much…Successful with the installation. I guess everything (USB, LAN, Nvidia and Audio) is running on GA-Z170N-Gaming 5.

Only a little issue of “noticeable slow booting” (it took almost 5 mins to boot each time)…, although some of the unused kext files have been removed from kext/other.

Any suggestions?

Is it worth building a 7700k machine now?

I cannot seem to get this to work on the ASROCK Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming board (I read your other post on that) with the 7700 CPU. Am I doing something completely stupid? It goes through the Apple logo loading process, gets to the end and just reboots back to the clover installer. I’ve tried all the BIOS settings you recommended (especially those in the original Sierra post) and I’ve tried the different BIOS versions as well – most recently with the 1.20. The reboot happens so fast, I’m not able to determine what it is unhappy with. Thanks in advance!

Thank you for this amazing guide!!! I followed your guide very carefully to the T. I had to look up a handful of things along the way (like Kaby Lake and Skylake) since I am not techy with hardware, plus I’m a Mac gal. It took 5 hours and it worked flawlessly! I transformed a very nice 1-year old PC to a fresh new iMac :):) Thank you!!

Hi! I finally got my first hackintosh working with a mix of this guide and the GA-Z270M one. Your guides really helped a lot. I’m Very thankful for your amazing and detailed work here. But i think that my MSI RX 580 Armor 4GB (or other component) is not using all of it’s power. Just for testing, I’ve tried running some games that I saw running well on official macs with theoretically much less power than mine and it was very disappointing. I’ve just installed High Sierra with your EFI Folder and nothing more. There’s anything else necessary? My setup:… Read more »

HEY Hackintosher, I’m Abhilash, And I have an ASUS motherboard and Radeon HD 5750. My processor is intel i5 7400 and When I installed MAC OS sierra 10.12.6, I had the colour flickering, I enabled graphics acceleration by injecting fake ID and framebuffer of HD 5770.

So I switched to 10.12.3 and now everything works fine except the boot resolution, The boot menu and the boot loading screen are both out of resolution. I tried all alterations but I was unsuccessful.

I’m using Clover UEFI bootloader.

My Email: ilashh@icloud.com

Please let me know of any solutions.

Al though I did need to unplug my GPU as it was the problem in not letting me install the software at first. I still haven’t installed it back in as I am planning on download the web drivers first.

Could you possibly help me with that? I don’t know why, It worked with my previous Sierra hackintosh.

I have a Pentium G4560 CPU and could either get a GTX 950 or an RX 460 for my GPU. I would much more preferre the RX card but I am afraid that I cannot install High Sierra 10.13.1, since in this guide it is mentioned that an NVIDIA card is mandatory. Currently I don’t have any GPU and could only afford to buy one. But in the later section of this guide you mention that it would be possible to disable iGPU in BIOS for the installation process. Would that mean that I could use my G4560 + RX… Read more »

Your build worked perfectly have mac high sierra os running on ASUS Z170 Pro gaming i5-6600K AMD R9 Fury triple dis. Am using built in Intel graphics because mac drivers for AMD R9 Fury are not ready for prime time. Card seems to be, based on led’s on card running at full capacity? When using AMD card video is slow refresh and artifacts also occur. Have changed bios so CPU graphics only are used high sierra runs perfectly fast no artifacts. Concerned because led’s on AMD Fury card shows all on which means its drawing power from all power pins.… Read more »

I am using the same motherboard and CPU as your last build (Gigabyte Z370 / i7 8700 CPU).

I am having 2 problems.

1) The clover configurator won’t mount the EFEI (it shows at the top of clover, but not at the bottom where it needs to be mounted)

2) The computer recognizes the USB, but will not boot from the USB.

This guide and this website are fantastic! The guides are clearly written with sufficient detail to be useful to t he inexperienced hackintosher. Used this one and others that it linked to successfully build a Hack with an ASRock B250-HDV board and a Pentium G4560. By the way, even though ASRock’s website states that this motherboard uses the ALC887 Audio codex which would be 7 in the Clover Device configuration, 11 is what really works for the onboard speaker jack.

Hey guys I am stuck at the initial stages of clover bootloader: When first powering up a GAgabyte GA-Z270X Ultra Gaming mainboard, the USB clover bootloader stalls halfway through the first boot screen _(apple logo turns to a circle with a diagonal line running through it).

Hi there! I’ve been attempting a High Sierra install using an Asrock Fatal1ty Z370 Gaming-ITX/ac board. I’ve had no problem configuring and saving the p-list and setting the proper bios settings from the builds section. However when I install using integrated graphics (or my GTX 1080) I never make it to Step 5, the Apple logo turns into a ‘null’ circle ( a black screen featuring a zero with a line through it). Do you have any suggestions/changes I can make to get to step 5? Thanks so much — this is a fantastic site!
