Hello ... 9360 community.
I had been trying (very hard) to install MacOS on the 9360 hardware.
So far, though, Clover is not the biggest enemy. I had mine working almost without kexts.
Does anyone know where to get a disk image (bootable installer)?
I had obtained various clover from various sources. Almost all of them boot (from USB), and it will be able to list the disks attached to the machine.
Unfortunately, out of maybe 10 images I tried, ZERO of them worked.
My dad owns a Mac. Good story ...
So I went ahead and used the unibeast and this and that ...
Actually, the unibeast thing didn't work.
My father's mac is a 2016 mbp 13. running some high sierra.
I can't install the "install high sierra" app because it IS high sierra, and the "install mojave" doesn't work because it's a online version.
So apparently I had a "working" image ... nope.
The only image that booted went through the "selecting disk" page, then ir reported "this copy of install mac os sierra is damaged, and cannot be used to install mac os sierra."
I need a bootable image.
All the unbootable image (and corrupt image) issues aside, which drive should I use?
I have four drives. Three of them are NVMe, one of them is the SATA m.2 Samsung EVO 860, the other two are samsung ... MZVLB256 --- one of them ended with HCHP and another HBHQ.
The other one is a Toshiba .. KXG60ZNY256G.
All four drives have 256GB as capacity.
I want as much things natively supported as possible, so that might leave me with toshiba or the EVO. But the toshiba had a record of corruption (been unrecognized by disk management for a month), and EVO is currently my windows drive.
Let me know if you had any thoughts.
You can use gibMacOS to get a working image of MacOS. Even works on Windows!

Dunno about the drives, I have a SATA and works fine.
