I know that bit, it was in your first post. The true model number is usually a lot longer like this: ‎SHGP31-1000GM-2. Regardless I'm not sure the drive you bought is going to work in Mac OS, Windows it will

Did you see the post I linked earlier that said Hynix says that drive is not compatible with Mac OS? I think you need a different drive or leave it for Windows and install a SATA SSD and install Mac OS on that.

Just noticed the post for Leesureone' guide and all the EFI folders became #890 on page 89 for some reason.

Hey guys, I have a simple question...
I have a NUC8 i5 and it runs BigSur flawlessly with OC 7.1...I love this little machine!
Now I need an installation of 10.11.6 (El Capitan) or 10.13.6 (High Sierra) for editing an older project. I want to install this on another SSD.
Do I have any chance to get it to work? Are the chances better using an older OC Version?
What do I have to do to get 'El Capitan' or 'High Sierra' to work? Please help...Thanks a lot...

I would avoid trying to get El Capitan to install, it don’t think will support your processor without spoofing. High Sierra on the other hand should work, see the attached post regarding it and 8th gen processors compatibility.
An earlier version of OpenCore will not make a difference and provide no benefit.

Hi Leesureone,
thank you very much for your fast reply...
That means running High Sierra with the current OC Version will work?
That would be awsome!

I’ve never tried it but from what I understand it should.

happens when a user gets deleted, which includes all posts he made, so the thread becomes shorter.

BTT - any plans on NUC8i7OC7.4 download on pg. 89 ?

Thanks, I'm sure something like that happened. Meanwhile I'm waiting until .75 to update.
