So I've been trying to get my first hackintosh running following the online installer guide from dortania. I've gotten to the macOS install utility but am having some problems there and can't seem to find any solution that works. 1) My Touchpad works but the right and left button don't so I can't click on anything. have to use keyboard to navigate which is difficult. 2) USB mouse doesn't work either but I'm guessing that's because I need to map USB. 3) I also can't select my HFS+ partition for install, and if I try to erase and reformat I get the 'not enough memory' error. I'm trying to install on an NVME with 2 partitions. 1 for windows and the other for macOS I'm adding my EFI folder here. I hope you can help. Thanks. EFI.zip
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 DW1397 WiFi 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.
