Installation Steps

  • Make 10.12.5 usb using win32 image writer
  • Boot into usb and install osx (if it stuck on graphics error for 2nd generation cpu you would have to disable graphics via clover or delete appleintelframebuffercapri.kext from /S/L/E from installer, if still can't boot try booting with safe mode)
  • Boot into installed disk via flash drive and install clover from olarila setup/files
  • Replace your clover efi folder with this one

If you are using 2nd generation cpu you would have to patch graphics to get it working


Also i have replaced my cpu from i3 2310m to i5 3210m
