@Habshan Abdulkalam hi,

hmm, hp mobo :)

1.So I think we should make a DVD, I already downloaded ISO, so I will try to burn and install it with DVD, BTW are there specific DVD requirements or any DVD would work ?

2.BTW is it Mavericks DMG or Mountain Lion ? And how did you check that it was Damaged ?

3.if DVD mavericks don't work then tomorrow (22 Sep) I'll try Mountain Lion (Niresh) because if mountain lion works then, It will be sure that there isn't any hardware problem.

    • @Niresh i forgot to say that that error was given because i have a Samsung M2 NVMe 960pro. I tried to remove it and it kinda worked but with a lot of bugs even during the installation. I can't remember everything clearly now cause it's been like 4 months ago

    • How many network adapters do you have? Like WiFi or Ethernet? Post output of lspci -nn command
    • Unfortunately i dont have any Option to disable my Grahpic Adapter. Can i disable it in an other way? Like any Boot Flags?   EDIT: I did just an Update for my BIOS but it didn't add any Options to disable my Graphics Adapter
    • This issue is called Discrete Graphics issue of High Sierra, To bypass this you have to disable either Intel HD Graphics 630 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 from BIOS, Check into your BIOS to see if you have any options to disable Graphics, Then try booting Keep me updated
