1. Create a High Sierra 10.13.2 boot utility: sudo / Applications / Install \ macOS \ High \ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume / Volumes / USB - applicationpath / Applications / Install \ macOS \ High \ Sierra.app - no-interaction

Install Clover and replace the EFI folder.


2. Within the Installer package there is a Kext to install High Sierra with SSD in HFS partition without having to do the Kext so that High Sierra Installer can not format the partition to APFS.


There is also a folder to change the SystemLogo of About this Mac, for which you want to change its appearance.

4. Restart.


Good luck.

Interesante, seems there are many ways to skin the cat :)

Your eth kext is Mausi, mine is E1000

Your sound kext is ALC, mine is IDT92HD93... from the AppleALC.kext instructions, you didn't need to patch the Vanilla kext... is this true?

I use only the AppleHDA kext patch in Clover... don't use the others yet

My E6230 definitely needs "FixHeaders", I don't know why

I use the VoodooPS2-HS.kext ver 6.0.0... does ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext it do more gestures than scroll?


What BIOS version do you have?


Thanks for sharing!

That's how the AppleALC.kext kext does not need to patch AppleHDA. ApplePS2SmartTouchpad.kext does not make more gestures I use it because it is the one that best suits me for my use.



Bios version A11.
