I cannot get to install Screen for High Sierra - Someone please reply.

Recommended Posts

I have been working on this for two days now and I would really appreciate someone helping me with this. I bought an entirely new system specifically to build this hackintosh which is based on a Golden Build from this website by the user, Hackashaq. If I can't get this system up and running before the return policy expires on my parts, I am gonna just have to return everything. I have followed every guide and youtube video I can find. Including Hackashaq's. High Sierra will not get to the first screen of the install where is asks for language etc. I bought this system based on a golden build because I needed it to work. I understand that there was going to be some leg work involved with drivers etc post-install, but I'm now going on 48 hours and literally cannot get the installers to load at all. I have tried the unishit method along with the Olarila methods. Both fail. It was suggested to me that maybe USB was failing and that I should put the install image on a small 2.5 inch drive via USB to sata enclosure. I tried this with unishit but itr would not do it because it is not a USB drive. So, only option left was etcher and the Olarila images. I did it this way and it still failed. Once I finally figured out verbose mode, it seems to be freezing up at nullCpUmanagement etc. I will post an image at the bottom of the screen. Other times, It will just outright fail and give some garbled text with a circle and slash going through it. The text that is readable says something about root device. I don't have USB 2.0 ports on my board. (i have internal headers for USB 2 hookup however). I have tried sandisk usb 3.0 flash drive and a kingston usb 2.0 flash drive. Both to no avail. My bios settings were set exactly as instructed in Hackashaq'a build. In the Olarila guide, there is a part where it says to disable the serial port. I don't have a serial port option. I have noticed that there is one difference in between the two methods i mentioned. Internal graphics. One person says to enable them and the other person says to disable them. I have tried it all every possible way. I feel that the only way this will be accomplished is if someone far beyond my understanding can open up a log file of some sort and see what is actually going on. Problem is that I have no idea how to create this.


I have read other posts where others seem to have somewhat similar (although not exact). They are being asked to provide clover.zip folders and problem reporting documents etc. I am happy to do this if someone can explain how. I also don;t really understand where dsdt falls into the process here. I don;t fully understand what it even does. (another reason i bought parts that were known to work out of the box)


I did however get sierra Olarila image to get to the install screen BUT when I went into disk utility it doesn;t recognize my internal NVME drive that is dedicated for Mac so no-go on that one. Next stop was trying the mojave Olarila image which also was a basic repeat of the high sierra fail.


I need some help from someone who wouldn't mind explaining things along the way. I have read information until my eyes burn. My full system specs are here and also in the side panel as instructed. My concern is that my motherboard isn't a ggigabyte gaming 7. It is a gaming 7-OP. I bought it on sale for 199 from newegg and was of the understanding that it is a gaming 7 board that comes with a 32gb optane drive. I knew ahead of time from researching that the optane drive would not work with MacOS so when I built the system, i removed it and made sure it was turned it off under the achi settings in bios. My motherboard is on the very latest firmware, which is F2. I looked at the gaming 7 motherboards and their firmware numbers are different. the firmwares on those go all the way up to f6 or f7.


It is also worth mentioning that I am not totally sure about the functionality of my motherboard's onboard graphics. Despite having them enabled at first, i couldnt get a signal out of the display port at all coming straight off of the board. I ended up going with the graphics card, which a radeon rx 560. From what I understood, this card is of the same compatibility wiith mac os and is basically a placeholder until my RX580 arrives on thursday.



I would appreciate any help anyone can offer and will be very grateful.
