Having trouble installing clover post installation. I keep getting This package is incompatible with this version of OS X and may fail to install. Tried multiple clover version, any idea?


Did you properly disable SIP?

Attach ioreg as ZIP: http://www.tonymacx86.com/audio/58368-guide-how-make-copy-ioreg.html. Please, use the IORegistryExplorer v2.1 attached to the post! DO NOT reply with an ioreg from any other version of IORegistryExplorer.app.

Provide output (in Terminal):
Code:
kextstat|grep -y acpiplat
kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu
kextstat|grep -y applelpc
kextstat|grep -y applehda

Attach EFI/Clover folder as ZIP (press F4 at main Clover screen before collecting). Please eliminate 'themes' directory. Provide only EFI/Clover, not the entire EFI folder.

Attach output of (in Terminal):
Code:
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /

Compress all files as ZIP. Do not use external links. Attach all files using site attachments only.

I didn't disable SIP, let me try that

Edit: It works now :headbang:. Forgot to add 0x67 on my config.plist.

Note: The current plists do not use a modified name, but instead use a new feature in Clover where for each entry, Disabled=true will disable the patch. Change Disabled=false to enable the patch.

If I open my config.plist with PlistEdit Pro, which values do I have to edit to enable a patch? I see no 'Disable' string. If you are wondering, I try to get rid of the distorted screen while booting.

Edit: I probably made a mistake. Got it now.

Hello RehabMan,

It's amazing the great work that you have done.

I searched the files with the extension ".kext" unsuccessfully. As I understand these files must be copied to the USB in the "Clover/kexts/Other" route, but I can't found them

RealtekRTL8111.kext (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Realtek-Network)
IntelMausiEthernet.kext (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Intel-Network)
FakePCIID.kext (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Fake-PCI-ID)

FakeSMC.kext (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-FakeSMC-kozlek)
VoodooPS2Controller.kext (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Voodoo-PS2-Controller)

Example (RealtekRTL8111):

Code:
git clone https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Realtek-Network.git
Cloning into 'OS-X-Realtek-Network'...

Resolving deltas: 100% (416/416), done.
Checking connectivity... done.

The content of the downloaded folder is as follows:



Within the git download, I can not find the .kext file.

The model of my laptop is HP Probook 840 G1.

I would greatly appreciate your help, if tells me what I'm doing wrong.

Apparently I found the files and running the following commands:

Code:
mkdir ~/Projects
cd ~/Projects
git clone https://github.com/RehabMan/HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch probook.git
cd ~/Projects/probook.git
./download.sh

Prebuilt kexts are provided. Read the README for the download location.

I could install El Capitan 10.11.3 some month ago and I am using it now
Now I want to update it to 10.12. I created the usb through the instruction for installing sierra.
On the usb 2 port it does not show any reaction. On usb 3 ports it starts.
In verbose mode, this is what I see after a few seconds.



my clover folder without theme is uploaded too.
Would you mind Helping me ?

Why do you have AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext in kexts/Other. I don't see anywhere in post #1 any such recommendation.
Your USB3 controller is probably not supported. Use USB2.

See also USB guide (eg. USBInjectAll.kext): https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-10-11-usb-changes-and-solutions.173616/
