Asus Rog Strix II GL704GM - installation

Recommended Posts

I'm finally Installing OSX High Sierra, following Olarila infos and guides:

USB 16gb pen drive

The High Sierra named 10.13.6 17G2208 8th Intel Processors

replaced the default installed Clover folder with the Olarila CLOVER.NOTEBOOKS.100.200.300.zip one

at clover startup choosed the option config2.plist

It's about 10/15 minutes in the installation process saying that one minute is remaining.

And now?

CPU i7-8750H /HM370

Graphics GTX 1060 - UHD 630, 1920 x 1080

[ref]MarsArtis[/ref], installation don't need replace folder, Olarila have a kexts, patches, essentials


Do you mean that once the Olarila Image is made with dd or Etcher it's not necessary to install Clover ?

I was reading your guide for laptop https://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=6257 and I thought I had to do that.

Ok, I'll reburn the USB pen drive and let you know

Did as you said.

But now after choosing in clover boot (config2.plist for laptop) menu the HSierra installation it starts in verbose, prints out code lines and then the monitor turn black.

What should I do?

Tried to start with config.plist (not config2.plist) but ends with black screen too.

But No luck, as soon as it reach the "less than a minute remaining" it seems to freeze since the mouse pointer no more moves (using an external cabled mouse) and the fans spins up.

just to be sure not to make any mistake:

1- start from Clover USB and select freshly installed OSX

2 - follow the steps from point n. 6 and 7 at https://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=8685

Just another feedback:

once at Welcome screen scrolling down caused spinning beach ball. I left it rest for a minute or so and than it behaved normally. Letting me choose the right location.

Anyway, I'm in OSX.

The first thing it's not working seems to be the ethernet connection. It's not listed in Sys Pref/network

Trackpad is not working

Audio not working

battery indicstor is not working properly (if the power is detached it says that the battery is low, if its connected the icon shows the flash but the contextual menu says not charging

Sorry, I'll do.

Meanwhile: I've noticed that when I do restart osx instead of going into clover bootloader it starts windows 10. How to avoid this ?
