This does not work with Enoch Bootloader, download the Clover Installer below and use it for the install if you're using Enoch Bootloader:
Code: Select all
https://mega.nz/#!0yhmFB5J!spDn_Y0opoD_15mysG3W5YWtHDznyGYXvkeJGo7SFhw
1. Download the High Sierra 10.13.2 INSTALLER from the app store, this doesn't deal with the Update from the Updates Section.
2. Let the installer run, and reboot.
3. Once the installer reboots you need to boot off the USB installer, let the installer load. Once the installer loads select Terminal from the Utilities menu.
4. Once Terminal loads enter:
Code: Select all
sh /Volumes/HighSierraAMD/AMD/setup_run
5. Once the menu loads you want to Select option 1, enter your hard drive name and let it do its thing.
6 . Once Pre-Install is done choose 11 to reboot.
7. Now you want to boot off the macOS Install from macOS partition or whatever you named your install partition.
8. On boot the installer will run again and copy files, could take some time, once through it will reboot again.
9. Boot off the USB installer again and when the UI loads select Terminal from Utilities menu. When Terminal loads enter the above command again to start the install script.
10. When the menu load choose Option 2 for Post-Install. Enter you hard drive name and Y for all the questions.
11. When finished Choose 11 to Reboot.
12. Now boot off your macOS partition again and a mini install may or may not occur that will last a short time and boot you to desktop. I had the mini install on my install to my 10.13.1 but not to my upgrade of 10.12.6.
13. You're done. Use your eyes and pay attention and you'll be ok.
14. I had issues dual booting windows and my high sierra on the same drive, I had to delete the window partition to let the install happen. I've asked Shaneee about this and am awaiting an answer.

I have an Clover based installer for Radeon cards, PM me and I'll give you the links. Have your specs in your signature as this won't work for NVIDIA. Included on the dmg is a Clover Files folder you'll need for PostInstall.

To begin use Transmac to restore the HighSierraAMD.dmg file to a USB drive, the USB drive needs to be at least 8GBs in size. This tutorial by Shaneee covers using Transmac to restore dmg images to USB: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1213 Once you have the image restored you want to boot off the USB drive. You want to select HighSierraAMD to begin. If you get a Waiting on Root Device message, move the USB to a different port for a few seconds to see if the install continues. If it does not then keep moving ports until it does.




Set your SATA ports to AHCI

Enable USB Legacy support and EHCI handoff

Disable your Serial Port

Installing Clover for UEFI



Installing Clover Legacy Bios




Installing Clover to a partition with no EFI


viewtopic.php?f=24&t=3039&p=31494#p31494


Install Extra drivers for Clover with Clover Configurator






Choose Customize

Image


If you have an EFI partition, choose install into the ESP.

Image


If you don't have and EFI partition, choose install into the chosen path.

Image


Check the following options.

Once checked click on install to install Enoch.



For Clover

Mount the EFI of the installer and open the Extra folder, inside will be an Extensions folder. Copy the files from there and place them into your EFI/Clover/Kext/Other folder, or if you're dual booting different macOS versions put it in 10.13.


For Enoch

Mount the EFI of the installer and copy the Extra folder over your existing Extra folder, whether it be in EFI or local hard drive. I've attached a good org.chameleon.boot.plist and an imac14,2 smbios.plist. If you can't boot with the 14,2 plist revert back to the 5,1 from the installer and try again. Also if you have an Nvidia card, you want to add NVIDIAWebDrv=Yes to Kernel Flags of the org.chameleon.boot.plist to load you web drivers every time.




I have attached zips of Clover Configurator (ccv.zip) and Kext Utility. I suggest when making your USB you copy them to the root of the drive to have when you get ready for post install.
