    Please upload your efi or config.plist. I had made a USB install High Sierra.
    latest cloverv2.4k_r4233 and fakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet-v2.2.0.
    I replaced the config with the one provided on fist page. But usb not booting.
    EFI problem?

    My Machine specs:
    Cpu Intel 6700k
    Asus Z170i Gaming Pro
    Samsung NVMe 960 evo M.2 SSD
    Intel 530 graphics

    I followed the tutorial, copied the sample config.plist and added those Kext (all newest versions available):
    - FakeSMC
    - IntelGraphicsFixup
    - Lilu
    - NullCPUPowerManagement
    - RealtekTRL8111
    - USBInjectAll

    When initialising installer it seems to work fine until IOGraphics 0x43 than the screen scrolls very fast and the system reboots....any help what could be the problem?

    Never mind, figured it out. For the benefit of others, the MacOS install was not the full version. I deleted it then SHIFT clicked on the App Store file and the full version downloaded.

    External - same option I had before I installed the OS
    Internal_hfs boot filevault prebooter from preboot
    Internal_hfs Boot MacOS Prebooter from Preboot
    Internal_hfs Boot MacOS from Sierra (the ssd)
    Recovery Boot Recovery from Recovery

    For anyone having this error "macOS High Sierra Public Beta.app does not appear to be a valid OS installer application"

    Check to make sure the installer is the full file size (5gb) in your Applications folder. Mine was 19.9mb and took less than a minute each time which is wrong. If you're running a system that is not capable of having High Sierra (Intel Core 2 Duo) but are putting it on something else that is, you will have to download the installer file a different way (other reasons also, but this was mine). There are tools to get it with or without the App Store. Here is the site that I used.

    After you get the correct version:

    1. Open the dmg file and right click on the Install macOS High Sierra.app and choose "Show Package Contents". Find the file path that shows the createinstallmedia location (/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia). Type in the first part of the command for the usb copy "sudo" into the terminal window, then click on the createinstallmedia file and drag to the terminal window.

    2. Type in the middle portion for the USB location. "--volume /Volumes/USB" or just click on the USB icon on the desktop and drag to the terminal window.

    3. Locate where the actual Install macOS High Sierra.app location is (open volume dmg for Install macOS High Sierra on the desktop for me). Type the first part of the command for the usb copy "--applicationpath ", then click on the Install macOS High Sierra.app and drag it to the terminal window.

    4. Finish typing the rest of the command "--nointeraction"

    5. Make sure the syntax for spaces is correct or it won't work properly.

    After that everything should be good.
