High Sierra Clover Guide

Note: By default, upgrading or new Install of HS


on an SSD drive, it'll automatically convert to
APFS format.
If you want to use APFS format, skip step 4
New Installation

(1) Create the USB installer via Terminal with


"createinstallmedia" (a minimum of 16GB UFD is needed or an
external USB drive)

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Reso


urces/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/"target_USB" --applicationp
ath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction

Note: target_USB = name of the USB drive you're writing to

(2) Install Clover


(https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/) with
following config, add appropriate Sierra bootpacks
Only + Generic EFI from post #2
(http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-
latitude-inspiron-precision-clover-guide/#entry54632) above
( See note1 below for updating bootpack for HS)
UEFI:

Install for UEFI booting only


Install Clover in the ESP
Drivers64UEFI\OsxAptioFixDrv-64

Legacy:

Install Clover in the ESP


Bootloader/Install boot0af in MBR
CloverEFI/CloverEFI 64-bits SATA

(3) Boot with the USB installer, start Disk Utility and initialize
your SSD as an APFS drive. Close Disk Utility, select Install
MacOS.
If you DO NOT want APFS, then select HFS+ format instead. Then
Close Disk Utility and follow step 4, otherwise continue to Step 5

(4) Open the terminal (on the menu bar click Utility>Terminal),
and launch this command

/Volumes/"Image Volume"/"install macOS High Sierra.app"/Contents/Re


sources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/"HighSierra" --agreetolicense --
converttoapfs NO

Note: HighSierra = name of the drive you're targeting


(5) System will auto reboot after files has been copied

(6) Boot with USB installer, select "Boot macOS Install from
HighSierra". Installation will continue installing and reboot
(Might have to do this rebooting a couple of times)

(7) Boot with USB installer, finish the customization

(8) Follow post install steps from Post # 1


(http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-
latitude-inspiron-precision-clover-guide/#entry54621)

NOTE1: Updating the Sierra Bootpack to be use for High


Sierra

1) Edit config.plist from Sierra Bootpack (I recommend using Clover


Configurator 4.59 or newer) and activate FixHeaders option
under Acpi:

(http://forum.osxlatitude.com/uploads/monthly_09_2017/post-108175-
0-76551800-1506612627.png)

2) Update USB port limit for High Sierra where applicable, if current
Sierra Bootpack doesn't have it, then you don't need this. Either disable
10.12 (Red) and add 10.13 (Green - 9 or 100 Series) or modify 10.12 to
10.13 port limit

(http://forum.osxlatitude.com/uploads/monthly_11_2017/post-1549-0-
90625700-1509856031.png)
3) Under SMBIOS, update the definition so that Firmware Features and
Firmware Feature Mask is now populated

(http://forum.osxlatitude.com/uploads/monthly_11_2017/post-1549-0-
57999900-1509495857.png)

4) [Recommended] Update the Sierra kexts


under /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
Common links for new kexts:
https://github.com/v...6/Lilu/releases
(https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu/releases)
https://github.com/v...KnownPlugins.md
(https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu/blob/master/KnownPlugins.md)
https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/ (https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/)

Upgrading to High Sierra and


keeping HFS+ format

If you want to keep HFS+ format, run this command instead of launching
the "Install MacOS High Sierra.app"

/Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/


startosinstall --agreetolicense --converttoapfs NO

If you want to install or upgrade to a different partition/drive

/Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/


startosinstall --volume /Volumes/"targetdrive" --agreetolicense --convertto
apfs NO

Note: Repair permission and rebuild cache if you lost audio after
upgrade. You must upgrade Clover, Config.plist and kexts as noted in
NOTE1: Updating the Sierra Bootpack to be use for High
Sierra
