Hello everyone.
I just received new Lenovo thinkpad l380 laptop.
I have used my clover usb drive (it helps me to install HS on my HP ProBook 430G4). Booted into clover - > select install macOS -> but HS installer doesn't see Lenovo internal NVME drive. I made SSDT_NVMe-Pcc.aml. Doesn't help me.
In the attachement clover folder and disasembled SSDT_NVMe-Pcc.aml. clover folder contains dumped ACPI table, ketxs, patched SSDT_NVMe-Pcc.aml, and config used. Sorry for my bad English.

SSDT_NVMe-Pcc.aml not applicable/not needed in High Sierra.

Your misc/preboot.log shows no NVMe SSD on the PCIe bus:

It is likely your mistake is failing to set SATA mode to AHCI (it is probably set RAID/iRST, which is not compatible with macOS NVMe support).

Change BIOS setting to AHCI. Remove SSDT_NVMe-Pcc.aml.

preboot also mentions:

Thank you but I was trying to find SATA settings previously without success. Maybe this laptop incompatible with macos. As i can understand there is no way to fix it?

NVMe present:
Code:
0:108  0:000  PCI (00|03:00.00) : 17AA 0003 class=010802
What do you see in Disk Utility?
What is the output of 'diskutil list' in Terminal?

From where did you download macOS?
On what hardware did you create your USB installer?
It was downloaded from appstore. Usb drive was created with dosdude tool for unsupported macs on my macbook unibody 2008.
I used this drive previously on my macbook and probook
