I have a E6500
CPU Penryn P9700 2.8 Ghz
4 GB RAM (2+2)
250 GB SATA HDD
BIOS A29 (Latest), all settings default + SATA set to AHCI
Nvidia NV160 256MB UXGA 1920x1200
Bluetooth card installed
Audio IDT 92HD71
I'm trying to Install High Sierra 10.13.6 on it and ... it doesn't work.
Freshly downloaded Install macOS High Sierra.app Version 13.6.02
Using createinstallmedia + Clover r4920 (Clover guide, non-UEFI steps), it boots, HDD formats fine, Installer starts then it dies with "corrupted media"
Using macOS High Sierra Patcher.app + Clover r4920 (another guide), it boots, HDD formats fine, Installer starts then it dies with "not compatible with this computer"
Used various E6500 Bootpacks form all over - same result every time.
startosinstall doesn't want to run either - cannot communicate with helper.
Using the same Install macOS High Sierra.app image + Clover (Clover guide, UEFI) i have successfully installed a E6430 so the OS image is good.
No idea what am i doing wrong - any advice is welcome.
Thank you very much.
