My System specifications are :

HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF (But should work on the ProDesk 600 G2 too)
Intel Core i5 6500 3.2 GHz (Will Be Upgrading to an i7 6700 or i7 7700 If the board will support it later)
Intel HD 530 (May throw in a GTX 1050 Ti Later)
1 x 8 GB 2400MHz DDR4 Ram ( Max Supported Size 64 GB )
2 X SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 2.5" 500GB SSD (1 = Windows 10 and 1 = Mac OS High Sierra)
1 x Seagate IronWolf 8TB NAS Hard Drive (For Data)



What works:

*Integrated 530 Intel Video Card ( With the Attached EFI folder....... ALL THANKS TO shuhung )

*Audio using VoodooHDA ( With the Attached EFI folder)

*USB 3.0 & 2.0 ( With the Attached EFI folder)

*Ethernet (I used the latest IntelMausi kext from RehabMan)

*For video, I'm using Display port to HDMI adapter. VGA PORT is UNSUPPORTED..


Whats NOT working ....

Sleep/Awake - It works but if I leave it for long periods and I try to wake the computer it just restarts. Any suggestion will really be appreciated.

When i shut down in High Sierra the system just turns back on again... Any suggestion will really be appreciated.



1. The method I used to prepare the High Sierra USB is UniBeast found on this guide.

2. Bios settings can be found on this LINK ( Big Thanks pepetuelo)

3. The installation process is simple, I followed the guide from tonymacx86.com site and did not use APFS.

4. I also did not use any Boot Args but you can use -v so you can detect when when you encounter issues.

5. Remember to always select Inject Intel and Input FakeID : 0x19120000 at the Clover Boot Screen Each time the system restarts during the installation. VERY IMPORTANT.... OTHERWISE SYSTEM WILL BOOT TO BLACK SCREEN. After replacing your EFI folder in the next step, you would not need to do this anymore..

6. After the installation is complete, download latest Clover Configurator and mount your boot drive EFI partition and copy the EFI Folder attached to this Post to the EFI partition and select REPLACE.

7. Restart

Conclusion: macOS High Sierra should now be working on your HP EliteDesk 800 G2 / ProDesk 600 G2 CustoMac.
