Mac OS X High Sierra Installation Fails

Question

Hi there !

I've successfully created a bootable usb stick with Nefesh High Sierra Zone and installation seems to go well with my resolution at 1920x1080 and able to get the point of os x installing to the harddrive after formatting the drive in Disk Utility. When the installation is almost complete, I get an "unknown error" occurring and a statement that it can not be installed on this computer :( Unfortunately, I'm unable to take a screenshot unless I use my cell phone's camera.

My system is:

Acer Aspire F 15 (F5-573-725L) laptop
Intel Core i7-7500U @ 2.7GHz
Captain_SK system board
Insyde BIOS (UEFI with Secure Boot Disabled) v1.27
Intel HD Graphics 620 (Kaby Lake)
Intel HDA Intel PCH
12 GB memory
500 GB Seagate HDD

Can anyone suggest something? I've disabled all nvidia graphics and enabled intel stuff.

Thank you!

Can you attach the installation log

Did you erase volume as Mac OS X Extended or APFS?

    • Greetings to you all! My hackintosh is running macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 and I was able to fix sleep and shutdown issues with a series of terminal commands. They must be entered in the order listed below. I hope it helps you guys too.

      sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.securityd ExitTimeOut -int 5

      sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder ExitTimeOut -int 5

      sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.diskarbitrationd ExitTimeOut -int 5

      sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.coreservices.appleevents ExitTimeOut -int 5

    • Hello, First of all, I'm starting with my pc configuration,    Processor: Core i3-6100 Motherboard: G1 Sniper B7 with 8GB Ram. GPU: AMD Radeon R7 370 So, I want to make my PC in Hackintosh. Is it meet Hackintosh compatibility? And which version should I go with like( Sierra, High Sierra etc.) with Process? I need your help. Thanks in Advance                                                                                                                                                                             
    • I wasn't being lazy, I looked through my whole bios and I couldn't find all the setting you are telling me to change, but I still found some of them. Once I change the settings, what should I do?
    • When I unzip Restore High Sierra I just get the .pkg. I'm not about to install the pkg on my main HD unless I know what it's going to do. 
    • Niresh, first of all, thank you for your help. I can't disable the NVIDIA GPU, even on the BIOS settings, there is no such option. I have even looked on the manufacturer help fórum, there is nothing in that regard. Is there a way to make these DSDT patches on your release? Could you make a guide or a video of it? I tried looking at some guides on tonymacx86.com, but it's too complicated for me (and also, I don't have a running version of MacOS on my computer). https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/fix-window-server-service-only-ran-for-0-seconds-with-dual-gpu.233092/ https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-dell-inspiron-14-7460-series-7000-uefi-hotpatch.236039/
