yup ;) DSM2..kext injects driver AppleUSBXHCILPTH of AppleUSBXHCIPCI and the different XHC USB HS and SS ports..

Thank you very much KGP, this is really valuable feedback. I'll test accordingly. I was just losing hope since I tried so many things and then I saw that the injector kexts don't even load... But now that I know they're not even supposed to load, it changes the situation.

Hi,

I was unable to update to 10.13.3 .
Now strange part is that I've tried various install packages and all fail with the same error:
"An unexpected error occurred while moving files to the final destination."

I have the latest apfs.efi and all.

Upon further investigation I found this in the logs:
Code:

How on earth I am going to get passed this? I am thinking, maybe manually copy to missing files?
Any ideas are welcomed.

Seems that you are not properly creating the macOS Usb Flash Drive Installer...

Are you saying I should not use the official update dmg and instead try to make macOS USB Installer Flash Drive and update with that one? Wouldn't that Flash Drive overwrite my current installation? I have 10.13.2 installed.

Which update dmg? You don't use a the Appstore to perform the update?

Alternatively you can indeed use a USB Installer Flash Drive with the macOS 10.13.3 Full Package Installer, which should not do anything else then the update of your 10.13.2 System ...

Good luck

I tried using this file: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1953?locale=en_GB

If anything else fails, I will try with a Full Package Installer.

can you share your kext and config.plist?
What is most important is to boot very clean without all the tweaking stuff (so only needed kext and no ssdt or dsdt files)
@ajschot Hi sorry for replying so late; I've been on a trip for work. I also saw kgp updated the EFI in the OP, so now I'm using the updated EFI template to boot. I also wiped my boot USB installer and reran the Mac App Store High Sierra installer terminal command to update to 10.13.3. Now I'm getting "some slide values are not availible for usage" at boot start as seen in post #1284, and I'm still getting the stuck at the same "exited with abnormal code 1" error at the end. I tried fixing the "slide values" error by adding OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000 to my drivers64UEFI folder, but it didn't help. Here's a video of my verbose boot: video (sorry for the potato cam quality. My camera doesn't seem to be able to focus on glowing white text. I can try to refilm if necessary). Attached is the EFI I am using to boot. I also tried booting from the EFI in post #1310, since we have very similar system specs, but to no avail. I feel like this might be a hardware/BIOS issue on my end. Any idea what BIOS settings might cause this? Thanks for your help so far!

System specs:
--5960X
--Rampage V Extreme
--GT710
--64GB Ram

Thanks for the nice guide. I am almost a beginner for the hackitosh. I installed 10.10 in this machine (with ASUS X99 deluxe mob) but now I want to upgrade to 10.13. I will follow your guide step by step. One basic question before I start.

You mentioned about patching the bios in the very beginning. Will other installed systems like windows or linux crashed due to the patching?

Thank you very much.
