  1. Create USB Installer
    1. Format flash drive as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and GUID Partition Map in Disk Utility.
    2. Create a Mac OS High Sierra USB installer with UEFI Boot Mode selected using Unibeast.
    3. Copy Clover Configurator, FakeSMC.kext, Kext Utility, apfs.efi, and Multibeast: High Sierra to your USB Installer.
  2. Change Bios Settings
    1. Extreme Tweaker
      AI Overclock Tuner > X.M.P.
      Extreme Tweaking > Enable
    2. Advanced Items
      CPU Configuration > CPU Power Management Configuration > CFG lock > Disable
      System Agent (SA) Configuration > VT-d > Disable

      APM Configuration > Power on by PCIE/PCI > Disabled
      Onboard Devices Configuration > Wi-Fi Controller > Disable
      Onboard Devices Configuration > Bluetooth Controller > Enable
    3. Boot Menu
      CSM > Disable (if no OS or UEFI GPT Windows) I had to set all to UEFI in this menu to fix my graphics card for dual monitor support.
      Fast Boot > Disabled
      Secure Boot > OS Type > Other OS
      Boot Option 1 > Your UniBeast USB key
      Exit > Save Changes
  3. Run Mac OS Installer
    1. I didn’t have to enter any boot arguments to run the installer.
    2. Make sure to format both partitions as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and GUID Partition Map. This is required to install Windows as UEFI.
    3. Select the “Mac OS” partition you created and install High Sierra.
  4. Setup
    1. Boot into Mac OS High Sierra with your Unibeast flash drive. (I didn't have to use any boot flags.)
    2. Go through the basic setup process. My wifi card was automatically detected.
    3. Reboot
  5. Installing Windows
    1. Install windows to the “Windows” partition you created earlier.
    2. Go though the basic setup process after installation of windows.
    3. Reboot
  6. Configuration
    1. Boot into Mac OS using your Unibeast Flash Drive.
    2. Move the files you copied from your flash drive to the desktop.
    3. Eject the remove your unibeast flash drive.
    4. Install Clover UEFI Boot Mode from Multibeast. (It gave me a warning after installation, but it still installed)
    5. Mount the EFI partition using Clover Configurator.
    6. Copy FakeSMC to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other.
    7. Copy apfs.efi to CLOVER/drivers64UEFI
  7. Audio
    1. Download AppleALC, Lilu, and VoodooHDA.
    2. Copy the AppleALC and Lilu kexts to CLOVER/kexts/Other.
    3. Also, Install AppleALC and Lilu kexts with Kext Utility.
    4. Right click VoodooHDA and select Show Package Contents.
    5. Open the the Info.plist file in the Contents folder.
    6. Edit as shown (iGain to 0) in TextEdit and install the modified VoodooHDA.kext file with Kext Utility
Code:
<key>MixerValues</key>
<dict>
     <key>PCM</key>
     <integer>90</integer>
     <key>Rec</key>
     <integer>90</integer>
     <key>iGain</key>
     <integer>0</integer>
     <key>iMix</key>
     <integer>90</integer>
</dict>
  1. If Installing NVIDIA Graphics
    1. Open EFI/CLOVER/config.plist using Clover Configurator.
    2. Open the Install Drivers tab.
    3. Install EmuVariableUefi on the bottom left.
    4. Open the boot tab and uncheck nv_disable=1.
    5. Under graphics, uncheck Inject Intel & Inject Nvidia.
    6. Select iMac 14,2 under SMBIOS.
    7. Save and close Clover Configurator.
    8. Download the appropriate NVIDIA Graphics Driver from this link.
    9. Install NVIDIA drivers and restart.
    10. Check “NVIDIA Web Driver” under the NVIDIA menu and restart.
    11. If your NVIDIA Drivers are still not cooperating, open EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with TextEdit and modify as shown below and reboot.
Code:
<key>SystemParameters</key>
<dict>
     <key>InjectKexts</key>
     <string>YES</string>
     <key>InjectSystemID</key>
     <true/>
     <key>NvidiaWeb</key>
     <true/>
</dict>

Note: I would recommend unchecking Debug under the Boot tab in Clover Configurator to speed up the Entries Scan hang in the EFI Bootloader.

Hi,

I have the same motherboard but with a 7700k (bios updated for kabylake ofc) but I can't get clover working after a fresh full clear.

I probably have a kext/conf error, can you upload your EFI/CLOVER folder please ?

Thanks

Sorry for the delay. My CLOVER folder is attached. Let me know if you have any more questions.
