Bios 3601 new.
Thanks for the pictures , tried with those settings, even used your ssdt for cpu same results ...I can't crack it for some reason
I used the guide very successfully, really a great help.
Now however, using the Migration Assistant to get my data from 10.12.6 to 10.13, System will not boot after migration anymore.
Anyone with experience what could be the cause?
Are the old NVIDIA drivers from 10.12.6 also migrated and that could cause the trouble?
What happens when I reboot is that the system instantly reboots just before entering desktop.

Why don't you just clone your 10.12.6 System Disk by means of Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC), and directly perform the 10.13 macOS High Sierra Update on the latter clone drive? No need for migration in this case! The only thing you have to consider for the latter approach is to copy the working 10.13 EFI-Folder in the empty EFI-partition of your 10.13 clone drive immediately before performing the macOS High Sierra 10.13 Upgrade!
That is probably a good option now that I have my Efi-Folder cleaned up.
The reason I went for a clean install was to have a more stable system. I did not really expect any challenges with the Migration Assistant.
But you are right if no other users have any feedback regarding the migration assistant, I will do exactly what you proposed.
One question regarding you Geekbench results.... I assume those were done with Brummbärs Pmdrv.kext?
I only really get good performance using that kext for the Geekbench for multicore results especially.
But the drawback is that it breaks sleep.... so the choice seems....either good performing system or sleep.
Yes with PMDrvr.kext and EIST enabled in BIOS!
Apologies for all the posts, I have tried this so many times and I would love to make some progress...
Recap I have:
MSI X99A SLI Krait
Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti
Samsung 850 500GB SSD
I have this now (Step D.1 / 13.) :
Then if I let it go some more it turns into this:
NVMe SSD 960 PRO I tested.
Maybe it will help.
