Latitude E5440 High Sierra Upgrade using Clover


Recommended Posts

Herve, I should have been clear, it aborts in the 2nd stage where I select menu item from Clover to do the actual update. I


Jake, I will try the core storage to legacy you mention. I believe it creates some wierd logical partition. I'm been wondering all this time if its dual boot plus fact I have SSD which it wants to default to APFS while I have it as HFS because dual boot does not work otherwise.


Will update this post.


EDIT - So that worked, I think. Sound and Mouse pad not working so I can't even click mouse. Will try fix all these things.

Hi all,

I'm trying to install HS with Clover on my E5440 in UEFI mode on a new SSD (for the moment).

I followed Jake Lo's installation guide and created a usb installer via  terminal using "createinstallmedia" and using the appropriate Sierra bootpack  E5440_A13.zip from the same thread. 

I also applied the changes for HS to config.plist.

I can boot from the installer, but clovers boot screen seem to be in a loop with a problem a displaypolicyd and acpi battery manager (pictures 1 and 2).

see in attached file my full folder EFI and somme pictures in verbose mode 

i think that the problem is in some patch applied in config.plist  or dsdt.aml

Can you verified my configuration

Best regards

according to your screenshot, your system has Optimus (Nvidia card + HD 4400).

YOu'll need a different set of patch DSDT/SSDT.

Can you confirm?

What version of BIOS are you running?

Can you boot to Clover GUI. Hit F4 in the keyboard.

Compress and attach /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Origin folder here for patching.
