I used macOS High Sierra installer 10.13.2
I used UniBeast to create boot drive
I used MultiBeast in post-install (see attached MultiBeast config file)
VT-d turned off during install. Turned on after install.
VirtualBox 64 bit vms? Yes, I can run 64-bit vms in VirtualBox (installed via Docker Toolbox) using 4 cpus.
Created USB thumb drive with UniBeast. Did not use Clover program directly at all. After install used MultiBeast with the attached file.
Had to use Clonezilla bootable CDROM to partition and format drive as HFS. THEN, I had to use the Disk Utility "repair" feature to fix up sectors, then finally it let me install.
I disabled Serial Port in BIOS.
The computer goes to sleep and wakes up fast.
I didn't use WakeOnLan in the .mb file I attached but it sorta wish I did.
Got an error installing Virtualbox extensions. Gave up, not worth it.
1. My TOPPING USB amp works with audio on the computer, but the motherbound soundcard line-in wont route to the USB audio device output. The only way I could get it to work is to setup a Audio Jack server and route the sound . (see attached screenshot) . Is there a better way to do this? Does anyone else connect a LP player to their computer this way?
2. The Bluetooth device I have shows up in hardware but it wont turn on. I don't care: I just use a wired keyboard and mouse. If there is a simple and direct solution, let me know.
3. Cant change settings on mouse when i use a Microsoft mouse. The Mac mouse works ok.
