And just like that, I had upgraded my old GTX750 to an all new natively supported Radeon RX580.


Just needed to change bios settings:


OS type > Windows 8 WHQL

CSM Support > Never


For Clover use Aptiomemoryfix-64.efi driver instead.


Using the latest commit of whatevergreen and lilu kexts, HDMI audio and Graphics acceleration is a no problem. No further settings required in clover. And I am still using SMbios 12,2 :D

I am trying to install 10.13.6 on my H97 system

1. Are you using Oalrila image? 2. Did you set bios for AHCI? 3. Have you wiped your HDD/SSD using disk utility to use GUID partition and format as HFS or apfs?

1 - downloaded high sierra from app store

2 - yes it is on AHCI

3 - have formatted with GUID partition but after every boot it converts my ssd to apfs .. i am trying to solve this from last 2 days tried different methods but same error

some kexts just have to put in the efi/efi/clover/kexts/other folder an you would use w/e efi mounter you like

(clover config,espmounter,ect)

an for getting new kexts use this tool https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/334222-kext-updater-keep-your-kexts-fresh-with-only-one-click/ :cap
