I ran the installer again, and I actually managed to avoid the gIOLockState 3 error if I boot from internal graphics, however then I end in a reboot cycle, with the text scrolling too fast to properly see what is even going on.
I booted up in single user mode, and found that in Library/Extensions i had a NvidiaGraphicsFixup kext, which in now deleted, but I am still stuck at gIOScreenLockState for any configuration but single user mode.
the problem then seems to be that nv_disable=1 fails to actually disable non-accelerated graphics?
Is there any other way to force VESA mode?
I checked again, both Lilu and whatevergreen are in the kext folder on the EFI drive.
All these booting attempts from my USB stick were made with nv_disable=1 and I am getting the gIOLockState 3 errors.
I also tried booting with -x, to the same result.
Booting with -s insofar works as I do get access to a command line interface, but no graphics whatsoever
I can boot using the stick or the recovery partition, but using the EFI directly from USB should be the same as copying it over?
I trying booting using the UniBeast EFI already directly from the USB stick, and it gives me the same spam of [IGPU] Hash data from ME never returned, status = 1...
I removed the GPU, and tried booting using internal graphics. This results in a spam of
[IGPU] Hash data from ME never returned, status = 1, doing retry #
The only suggestion for this was loading it using -disablegfxfirmware, leaving me again at gIOLockState 3
I also tried booting using -x...
Thank you very much for your advice, but with your changes I am still ending up at gIOLockState 3, trying it both with and without nv_disable=1
Is there some way to remove/deactivate the webdrivers, I did boot the machine without them when I set it up the first time?
I initialize the PCI first, I also tried it the other way around, but I end up back at gIOLockState 3
I am using the EFI of my USB stick now, on this one I now installed the Lilu and Whatevergreen kexts, but they end me back at the gIOLockState 3
I attached my Clover folder of the USB stick...
My High Sierra installation broke, so I used the recovery partition to reinstall High Sierra.
After the installation, my disk booted up once, doing some more installation, but now I can't boot.
I had to add InjectNVIDIA, but that only brings me to the apple logo, with no more printout from...
