Cannot install on Dell Precision 7710

Recommended Posts

I am SOOOO close.

I couldn't figure out how to remove the virtualSMC from the image or how to add the fakeSMC so I downloaded the Mojave image. I used 7-zip to view its contents and saw it had the fakeSMC kext in it so I imaged it to my USB using etcher.

It booted into the first part of the installation where I partition the drive and tell it where to install macOS.

It then reboots, and I press F12 to boot again from the Clover screen. After some verbose, the Apple logo appears saying "about 15 minutes" and then I get the attached Verbose screen.

p.s. Don't let me forget to send you send beer when I finally get through this D&D mission :D

I accidentally figured it out. The second time you boot and press F12 to install from the USB, I added all Clover options and then it booted normally. It's finishing the second boot and taking me to the final setup now.

Fingers crossed. I think it may actually work this time.

Nope. I was wrong. Instead of it booting into the welcome screen where you specify country, keyboard, username, etc. it just booted to a solid yellow screen. I'm thinking it's going to be something in my Dell Precision 7710 BIOS settings.
