I’m not having much luck! Keep getting the firmware error. SIP is disabled. apfs.epi is copied. Still no joy and haven’t yet managed to find an answer in these forums. Anyone with any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Try removing any windows disks during install, or updating clover. If you manually overwrite your SMC version in config.plist that may be the problem. There is an up-to-date firmware version for each SMBIOS and it sounds like your system is not being seen by the installer as up-to-date.

There are lots of issues just on the real Mac side to be wary of this update. Why the rush? If you have several MacOS devices in your environment (as I do) you will have file share issues. Add to the usual Hackintosh issues why the rush?

APFS and file sharing
  • Volumes formatted as APFS can't offer share points over the network using AFP.
  • APFS supports SMB and NFS, with the option to enforce only SMB-encrypted share points.
 
This is a question with some debate. I think @RehabMan will advocate for keeping them in /L/E. I personally keep all Hackintosh kexts in my EFI partition. Do whatever makes sense for you, but I would say, don't have the same kext in both places. But I'm a developer and I advocate for simplicity and long term maintainability.
That makes sense, I think will follow your advice and keep the Hackintosh kexts in the EFI partition.

Thanks. So i changed the bios version to the one listed in clover and still the same. Do I need actually need High Sierra? Lol!

Update: using firmware features that I found elsewhere we are now progressing to an actual install! Hooray!

you just need to enable SIP when install the web driver, after you installed, do what ever you want to disable sip...

enable SIP add the settings to your config.plist.

Clover Configurator > Rt Variables > BooterConfig and CsrActiveConfig

Relevant user options for SIP are as follows:
csr-active-config 0x0 = SIP Enabled (Default)
csr-active-config 0x3 = SIP Partially Disabled (Loads unsigned kexts)
csr-active-config 0x67 = SIP Disabled completely
