I have attached my EFI folder, pics of my bios settings and also pics of my clover configuration.
1) My EFI folder is pretty much exactly the same as KGP on the link bellow
2) I have also followed his guide to make a USB truncated 15 port .kext, that is in my EFI folder as well as some sddts that were also provided in KGPs post
You are welcome to use mine but please note that on my Asus x99 deluxe ii I only have the USB3_12 port and the USB1112 connector actually connected to the mother board. USB3_34 is not plugged in. The USB 3.1 ports are not going through the USB bus but are shared with the PCIe bus. Also on my motherboard HS10 is shared with the bluetooth module
3) I’ve added a bluetooth injector .ktext that I found from another user who distributed his x99 deluxe ii files on GitHub
4) In KGPs Imac Pro to x99 guide Section C-7.) To avoid CPU thread TSC desynchronisation errors during boot
I have made my own TSCAdjustRest.kext file for a Broadwell 6950x with an IOCPU Number of 19 (20 threads -1)
In you case with a 5930 this number should be 11 (12 threads - 1), so you can use mine and modify accordingly.
5) in the ACPI section of clover all the DSDT patches are unticked (enabled). In your case you don’t have a 10 core CPU so there might be some changes there.
6) In Kernel and Patches for you Haswell-E/EP standard FakeCPUID: not required, natively supported, leave it blank
UPDATE: Worth mentioning that in my EFI/Kext folder you will find Unsolid.kext which forces High Sierra to use HFS+ format install and updates instead of Apples AFSP, however this must be removed once the install is completed in order for your SSDs to show up as Medium Type = Solid State and show Trim Support = Yes in the System report under System Information in OSX as well as About This Mac / Storage. If you don't remove this .kext, OSX seems to see the drive as regular SATA drives and not SSD. This doesn't affect write and read speed of the SSDs though but this may impact the Trim functions of the Kernel patch enabled in Clover.
Hi #Ozamal, I stumbled on this thread and noticed you also have successfully implemented the unsolid.kext into your EFI to, I presume, maintain your original HFS+ system disk. I wanted to know if you have been successful in updating to High Sierra 10.13.6 SU and all the other 2019-20 Security updates whilst maintaining your HFS+ file structure?
I recently reluctantly migrated to High Sierra using KGP's great guide and i'm also successfully running the Unsolid.kext due to the fact that my two internal RAIDS are massive and I don't have the free space to back them all up so have been also using the unsolid.kext to keep everything in HFS+ and now trying to update beyond the initial 10.13.6 installation to the latest security update to be able to access the recent Nvidia webdriver 3188.8.131.52.40.135 that is reportedly working well with the 1080ti graphics card.
I'd really appreciate any insights you may have.
