    [Guide] High Sierra on HP Spectre x360 8th Gen Coffee Lake

    For anyone still following this that was having issues with USB-C hotplug on the Thunderbolt port, this technique here solves the problem. (Assuming it also works for TB3 proper, but I don’t have any TB3 devices.)

    Mojave largely works with this guide.

    [Guide] How to use eGPU with any laptop equipped with Thunderbolt 3

    Do not have any TB3 devices to test at the moment, but this fixed the hotplug issue on my HP Spectre x360’s Thunderbolt 3 port. Thank you!

    That’s a huge bummer, I’ll keep an ear out and see what I can find. FWIW, it seems like the trackpad on your Spectre model is giving some Linux users problems as well: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201775

    OK, doing some research on the lockup issue: A lot of lockups that happen with two minutes left appear to be a side effect of the APFS not properly formatting on the drive. Assuming that’s the issue, you have both apfs.efi and ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi in your drivers64UEFI folder. You need to...

    To clarify, does it lock up on the initial boot into the installer or on the reboot, when it just shows the black screen with the Apple logo? Since you’re mentioning mouse functionality it seems worth asking.

    When I get a little more time I’ll try to dig into your config.plist to see if anything’s off, but @jm52262's recommendation sounds like a good lead. You may need to do some DSDT patching on your USB before you finish installing.

    Sure thing. Thanks Jay!

    Thanks, just tried it. It seems to have made a lot of progress, but I ended up turning it off because it seems to lead the battery to drain while it’s sleeping. Perhaps the trackpad is too sensitive? (I’ll give it another shot when I’m less busy.) I think it’s looking really close, though I miss...

    Perhaps you can try installing it on an external drive first? I think the preferred method for setting up Mojave is to install it on an external SSD and use Carbon Copy Cloner to copy it over. In the case of the HP software, yeah, that’s basically because you haven’t had a chance to copy over...

    How did I not know about this? This is great. I know RehabMan took a step back, so I’m glad that this got picked up. Thanks for sharing, Jay.

    Just found this in reference to a separate thread about a similar Whiskey Lake machine: I pulled them out of the file and attached that version here. I did double-check the graphics card just to be on the safe side, and the Intel graphics are still UHD 620 on the Whiskey Lake version of the...

    I would grab the releases from the official sources. Here’s RehabMan’s page with the releases for VoodooPS2Controller: https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-voodoo-ps2-controller/src And VoodooI2C is here: https://github.com/alexandred/VoodooI2C/releases My general policy would be to grab from...

    I haven’t had a chance to dive into your conflig.plist yet, but one thing I noticed right away: You have an old version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext in there that was released before a version with a specific Synaptics fix was put into place, and as the Spectre uses Synaptics devices, that may be...
