Ladles and Jellyspoons.
I own few older laptops HP G56 100SA being one of them. Its not the most modern hardware ever (warning: understatement of the century) but I believe that it can still do great things.
I am a Windows / Linux user. I can handle the penguin ok. I've been playing with High Sierra on my broken / EFI hacked Macbook pro (15 inch / early 2011) and even tho the AMD graphic chipset is dead I am running everything on the Intel hd 3000 graphics and it does... OK.
I would like to try putting High Sierra on HP G56 100SA.
So far I have a 16 gb pendrive (Sandisk), I have downloaded the .app files for both High Sierra and Mojave using dosdude1 patchers. I have created the High Sierra using the command line and I have installed the Clover V2.4 r4895 on the USB drive using the "AMD settings" (attached) which I have compiled after watching dozens of YouTube videos and reading some hackintosh related manuals / how-to's.
Pendrive has been formatted using the Mac OS Extended / GUID.
I am not using Uni or Multi - just pure Clover. I have installed it using settings that are visible on the attached screenshot.
I am also attaching the config.plist - renamed to and archived as amd.config.plist.7z
What am I trying to achieve?
1) Have fun.
2) Meet some hackintosh people.
3) Gain some hackintoshing experience
4) Maybe actually get this project to work.
Its a fun project. My life doesn't depend on it and if I won't be able to do it - world will not collapse.
What does my progress look like? Well... pale
During my journey so far I have managed to figure out why my USB installer won't boot to clover and I've managed to get to a many +++++++++ signs. After that on some laptops I got to the "stop" sign, on some of them laptop reboots right after the ++++++ chars, on G56 100SA the laptop either freezes (or just halts). I am attaching screenshots.
In any case I am unable to reach installer, not mentioning finalizing the installation. Could you please let me know what am I doing wrong? Everything? Allllrighty then .

Thanks in advance! Also in advance I apologize for the late replies. They try to work me to death and I find myself having less and less time recently although this _should_ change soon (TM).
P.S. Why did I mentioned "other laptops" at the beginning of this post? Well - because maybe the laptop I chose to do this project is not the greatest for this purpose.
1) Acer Aspire 8930G
2) Dell Inspiron 1545
3) Compaq CQ60 218EM
If you would be interested in helping me but you would prefer me to use one of the 3 laptops mentioned above for best results - give me a shout and I may start another topic.
Oh yeah - and the black bars on my screenshots are for your protection. Long story short - glossy screen, ugly mug, lots and lots of "OH NO MY EYES!"
