Hello everyone!
I am new to the community, and my English can be imperfect sometimes.
I have been trying to install mac os high sierra from the app store and used unibeast 8.2 with no success.
When trying to install I get an error saying: "This version of mac os x is not supported on this platform"
I have read some threads about the problem but can't find a solution

I have the razer blade 15 base model with the 1060 (2018)

Thanks in advance for any help

Then it is possible that you have not configured the port correctly. Did you turn off Thunderbolt Security in BIOS? Additionally, do you see the JHL 6340 Tunderbolt 3 USB 3.1 Controller (C-Step) entry in Hackintool under USB?

What other things did you try that were possibly not mentioned for usb-c monitor out? I noticed my graphics don't say UHD 630 but instead say Intel HD Graphics CFL CRB. Not sure if it's from a wrong graphics acceleration kext.

@vettz500 Hi, I have same RB but the base model, still on clover though and planning to go OC aswell, do you mind sharing your EFI so I can take a look which kexts are needed etc. Thank you in advance.

This is the framebuffer patch that I am using:

It sets the pipes for all connection entrys to 18, keeping the LVDS type connector 0x00 (internal display)
and the DP type connector 0x05 (USB-C). The two other connectors do not seem to be connected anyways, so I disabled them (index -1).
