@skadush, I always recommend a clean install for changing to a new OS but if you make a backup first you should be able to update over the Sierra system. I'm in the process of making the official HighSierraAMD image.

Ooooh noooo.. I have a clone using carbon and made it as a testing ground for any upgrades. Is it riskier to upgrade?

Not sure I've never actually tried it. If you've got a clone you could test it there though :thumbup:

I want to try the recent and new Kernel from Shaneee. How do I change to new one? Is there a script or terminal command I could use?

Thank you!

Thank you!
Replace the current kernel inside System/Library/Kernels then run these two commands in Terminal,
Code: Select all
sudo rm -Rf /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel
Code: Select all
sudo kextcache -u /
I don't recommend this on your main drive unless you can recover it with the installer post install script for example.

Thanks! Worked out fine. Getting better scores in Cinebench. Whoooppp!

Can anyone check if virtualisation and hypervisor support is enabled in this kernel? They are needed to run various development tools such as docker.

If you don't have time to install Docker, could you please run these commands in your terminal and share the output:
Code: Select all
sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features
This lists the features available on your CPU, I am hoping to see VMX on this list.
Code: Select all
sysctl kern.hv_support
This checks for hypervisor support, required for virtualisation tools.

If you could do any of this you would be doing me a huge favour!

Hi Shanee,

Regarding the Kernels. My 1950x boots the .dmg/USB drive config properly into the Clover command line interface but no matter what I've tried, there is never an OSX installer screen. Is it possible I'm overlooking something quite simple? Thanks.

I tried both the commands and also installed Docker but it didn't work (Result can be seen in the screenshot).

I would be really happy if there is a solution for this
