Man try to make high Sierra installation stick and install clover, after you install clover on usb drive ,
mount EFI from stick and replace entire EFI with mine. just replace entire refi folder with mine for installation.
After u installed High Sierra and boot for the first time on high Sierra hard drive install clover and replace all efi with my post install EFI.
Next steps its to install web driver , and don't restart, and run agtdp fix.

I’ll start completely fresh from the beginning I’ll erase everything and start again using your guide to see if that works

You must format the hardrive first as fat32 master boot record to erase completely the EFI partition
and after that afps

I mounted my EFI Partition and formatted it from there , there’s nothing in that partition now , when I get home from work I’ll start a fresh install , the files you gave me are for High Sierra right ?

Gajaciosif, hello and thanks fur such a great guide. I have your exact same build, with the exception of the GPU. Your guide was very useful. I'm new to Hackintosh, and I don't know how to work XCPM. What settings did you use within the bios to get that benchmark? I'm stuck at stock settings and, although it's working fine, it would be nice to hit results like 25012 or so.. Any help?
