I used this guide to install sierra, and its mostly good... my main issue is that i dont get output via HDMI. if i boot the machine with HDMI installed it gets to the apple loading screen, then locks up and fails, and if i boot it with MDP its fine. once booted, plugging in a hdmi does nothing, its not recognized at all. did i miss something?

Very interested on ASROCK Beebox S i3 6100U, which has almost same specification with intel NUC6i3. The pros of it are changeable wifi/bt module, sata3 hdd and full-size hdmi dp output. And cheaper at the moment than the intel nuc.

But it's hardly to find any successful guides of it until now. The only problem maybe the USB 3.1(Type C) which Nuc6i3 doesn't have.

Any suggestion?
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-6100U (3M Cache, up to 2.30 GHz)
  • Memory: Supports DDR4 2133 MHz, 2 x SO-DIMM slots, Max. 32GB
  • Storage: 1 x 2.5" SATA3 HDD + 1 x M.2 SSD slot (2260/2280)
  • Graphic: Intel HD520
  • Wireless: 802.11 ac + BT 4.0
  • Front I/O: 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 3.1(Type C), 1 x IR, 1 x Audio-out with MIC-In
  • Rear I/O: 2 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x Gigabit LAN, 1 x kensington lock
  • Audio: Realtek ALC283

I just installed the latest clover, and a reboot went fine, then installed the latest update (security & itunes), and now the system goes into a constant re-boot. Clover shows up fine, then when it boots, it resets the machine before the apple logo even shows up. Boot clover with verbose mode and not much more detail is shown, 2 lines. Something like :-
OsxAptioFixDrv: Starting overrides for System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
Using reloc block: yes, hibernate wake: no
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Then reboots.

I've tried booting in recovery mode, but that doesn't seem to boot either, 1 hour later and it seems stuck.

Any ideas, I'm completely lost now?

Worst comes to the worst, is there a way to do some form of USB boot and save off the information on the hard drive before installing again?
I had the same issue right after installing. Just reformatted the drive and reinstalled.
On the bright side, my bluetooth works after the reinstall. Only tested it with a mouse but no issues so far.

Same story here. Installed latest el capitain security update at the weekend, which completely fried the install into endless boot loop, not even reaching the apple logo. Verbose boot flag produces nothing of use:

OsxAptioFixDrv: Starting overrides for System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
Using reloc block: yes, hibernate wake: no
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Recovery partition of course won't function in clover without some magic done before needing it.
I tried changing some clover options to change graphics injection, but no luck so far.
Is the original usb install drive (that installed clover and el capitain) of any use in a recovery situation?
I just need to get to the point of being able to use a time machine backup to recover.

Sounds like you forgot to update Clover prior to the update.

Are you supposed to just for an el cap security update?
Is there a way to update clover post-facto?
Cheers!

The Kernel changed and therefore my patch code behind KernelPm also changed.
Always a good idea to update Clover before any system update.

Use USB with new Clover to boot.
Then update Clover with the Clover installer.

Will this install guide be updated for High Sierra?
