Hello everyone,

yesterday i tried to install MacOS High Sierra on my new Crucial 240GB SSD.
I prepared my 8GB USB 3.0 Stick on my 2017 iMac with Unibeast, Multibeast and Clover Bootloader and Configurator.
I have to say that i'm absolutely new to Hackintoshing.

I added an FakeSMC.kext into an folder on the EFI Partition of the USB Stick.
Then i tried unplugged all of my other HDD Drives from my PC, changed my BIOS Settings accordingly to the Installation Guide from tonymacx86. I only had the SSD, a Keyboard, a Mouse, Ethernet and the USB Stick connected, and Power of course.
I started with -v in Clover the Installation. After 2-3 Minutes I saw the same screen as the first picture of this guys Thread.

(I use his Post because i made no photos myself unfortunately. But it was exactly the same Screen.)

I hope you can send me some tips or EFI Folders, with which it will work for me.
Thx

When installing this could mean that your USB flash drive cannot be found.
This is usually because the flash drive is in a USB3 port.
If this is the case move it to a USB2 port, if it is already in a USB2 port move it to another and try again.
Repeat until you have tried all USB ports.
Use a USB2 flash drive.
If it still doesn't work you could try another flash drive.
You might also try enabling Legacy on your USB3 ports in your BIOS settings.
If you only have USB3 ports try with your USB flash drive in a USB2 hub.
Make sure Fast Boot is not activated in your BIOS.
