[HELP] Dell Optiplex 980 - OSX High Sierra installed but unstable


Recommended Posts

Hi there!


After 5 days of trial and error of trying to setup macOS X High Sierra on a Dell Optiplex 980, equiped with a Core i3 530 and a NVIDIA GT 710, I've managed to install it! I've done it using this tutorial: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/329828-making-a-bootable-high-sierra-usb-installer-entirely-from-scratch-in-windows-or-linux-mint-without-access-to-mac-or-app-store-installerapp/


I've also added the USBInjectAll.kext extension as well and modified the clover configuration file a bit.


However I've got a handfull of problems:

1 - I can only boot with the USB Drive plugged in (where I put the CLOVER parameters required before booting)

2 - It's fairly unstable: I've got kernel panics left and right everytime the CPU needs to do a certain amount of work

3 - The screen turns completely dark when I try to maximize any application


Do you guys have any suggestion to solve those problems?
