I tried the following flags : -x nv_disable=Yes maxmem=4096 npci=0x3000


Attempt 2 (legacy bios):

+boot to high sierra zone installer

+erase disk

-installation fails when it reaches the end ( error 0 )


Attempt 3 (legacy bios):

Attempt 4 (legacy bios):

+boot from usb

+select the previous installation ( attempt 3)

+High Sierra works!

So High Sierra did install (altough it showed installation couldn't finish) but It din't install the boot loader correctly. I can access osx using the usb.

What works:


+Usbs 2.0 & 3.0sound work well.

+Geekbench shows normal score.

+Touch screen

What doesn't

-Intel hd graphics, shows like having 7mb of ram, diplays poor resolution.

-Boot without usb


How can I translate Enoch's configuration to Clover?

    • Hello,
      On High Sierra 10.13.1 under VMWare.
      I install Final Cut Pro 10.4 when running got this error:
      This graphics configuration does not support hardware acceleration, which is required to run Final Cut Pro.
      My GPU is: AMD Radeon R7 240 but show on Hachintosh About : Graphics: Display 128 MB. Thank you for help.
    • I got same error 4 years later. On High Sierra. What's the solution? What you suggested doesn't work. Why does this happen? Any ideas?
    • Hi there. I have the exact laptop and was able to install MacOS HS on it and boot up. I followed tonymaxx086 instructions but.... the following are NOT working as yet.... 1) Keyboard and trackpad (although usb kb and mouse work)
      2) Backlite control (screen appears to be in battery mode - dimmed)
      3) Sound
      4) Wifi 
      5) battery? I am able to access the internet and browse ok using Safari. I want to resolve #1 and 2 before I resolve the rest, but I am having an issue to determine what kexts to inject. There is no cross reference to this MOBO and I am not familiar with it. Can someone point me in the right direction? Many thanks....
