    Hello,

    I tried everything possible (that I could find) to install High Sierra on an Alienware Aurora R7.
    The further that I got is here:

    @Koston411, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard, CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card(s).
    If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard.

    Thanks @BreBo

    A little more details about what I'm trying to do:
    Trying to install OSX High Sierra (fresh install) on a Aurora R7

    I tried the following:
    - 10.13.3, 10.13.4, 10.13.5 and 10.13.6 (this one stops before)
    - I tried the standard CLOVER config.plist created by Unibeast 8.3.1 and I also tried to replace the CLOVER folder shared by @MarkJohnson (here)
    - I tried:
    • Adding MATS and DMAR
    • All solution suggested here
    Error with 10.13.6:

    Error with 10.13.3, 10.13.4, 10.13.5:

    Hi,
    I found the problem - Storage configuration was set to Intel RST, not to AHCI mode.
    As soon as I changed it to AHCI I can boot from USB and start installation.
    But I need RAID configuration for my Windows OS, so I'm not sure how to keep everything working...
    Trying to find a solution.
    @Koston411 - check your storage configuration.
