How did you get the BCM94352Z to work on windows? it freezes for me constantly (on boot).
It's a known issue, unfortunately there's no solution for this other than replacing the card with a compatible one [with hackintosh]. Afaik, it does happen only when using the laptop with battery. If you search for it, you'll find the issues wven on this forum

I copied your CLOVER folder to mine, booted it, but I need to change the SMBIOS to iMac18,2 every time for it to boot? how is that
Don't need to change to iMac18,2. You can try the one that works best for you.
I do use MacBookPro15,1 (some ppl use MacBookPro15,2 for similar laptop specs).
Which are the Apple computers' with most silimar specs

Hi everyone I have one question , I see all of this tutorial should be about installation Mac OS on AERO 15 X v 8 but what I read and understand there is no option to do it without another machine that actually have running Mac os on it already bcz all the commend for clover to create bootable USB are make in Mac os terminal and not in windows .
So is it possible to install Mac os without any help of another PC with Mac os installed if you already have oryginal Os but only external CD ROM and not build Inn laptop?
And if there is anyone who successfully do it mean installing Mac os on separate SSD disk on AERO 15 X v 8 and didn't use for this machine with Mac os ?
It's mostly post-installation. Which had very very specific configs for each system, so that they'd work as smooth as possible.

Please note that this will be a post-install thread for High Sierra
As @trs96 and @Feartech said, you should get the install media. And everything to at least have a bootable mac and start using this guide.
On this forum there's a plantifull of information on installing the hackintosh on your system.

To have the install media, you can (simplest to hardest):
- Have [or know someone that has] a compatible mac machine (or a hackintosh);
- Use the macadmin scripts
- Use a virtual machine

Ok thanks for info.
I also have issue with nvram and Bluetooth, I mess little in terminal when want to avoid hfs+ to apsf and now drive is in apsf, direct after first booth from SSD o get Bluetooth working although I don't replace WiFi card ,but no WiFi is gone.
I try to nvram -c but get error.
Is it normal that there coming different malfunction and how to avoid it?
Thanks in advance.
The good issue is at I don't experience 3 minut black screen on boot ,system loading quite fast.
In regards of the bluetooth, it might be related to how you are using BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext. Just a guess, no problem reporting files attached.

If you are in Mojave, you cannot have it with hfs+ with same handy method as High Sierra.

For Mojave you have to patch the installer, but we can't post this on this forum - jfyi I did it and it worked for me.

Thanks for this project. I'm new to all this, but your Github has really gotten me moving. I have Windows on my primary SSD and got a Samsung 970 EVO for my attempts at getting this hackintosh up. (installed in 2nd m.2 slot)

I successfully installed high sierra and was able to get to my first bootups and loaded in your June16 EFI files. Generally usable except for screen tearing and my sound not yet working.

Then I saw your Sept10 update and decided to overwrite the my EFI/clover folder. To my shock, i couldnt see the option to boot into my hackintosh at the clover screen. only the windows EFI drive was showing.

SO i quickly booted again from my USB installer into the Hackintosh drive and re-copied the June16 files. Things looking as they were.

Did i miss something in my copy procedure? i'd like to be able to use your latest files and hope some of my issues are addressed by it.

Interesting, did you copy 'over' the efi partition when you tried to update?
Clover had some changes such as UEFI drivers folder location change on the latest versions.
From /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/
Need to remove the older ones so that they do not conflict

yeah. I noticed the directory changes and removed the old ones. It was a full replace copy of the clover directory.

You mentioned an update in clover. Noob question: do I need to install/update clover EFI onto my SSD or something?

FYI: I started my fresh install from unibeast. (No multibeast) and made my SSD bootable by copying the EFI that was on my USB drive.
