I've been using an HP Z440 workstation for a year or so now. I hate Windows 10 so i think it's time to try running High Sierra on it. I've came across this thread but it's not too clear what the outcome was. Has anyone previously tried OS X on the 4th Generation Z400 series?

Am i the first?!

Mine has a 6-core x99 Xeon, 64GB of RAM, a GTX 770Ti and a 256GB NVMe SSD. (And a Marvell RAID array but not fussed about that.)

Hi.

Do you have Intel Xenon E5 v3 or V4?

I also want to install High Sierra on my Z440 workstation.
I have Intel Xeon E5 1620 v4, 16 GB 2400Mhz and AMD FirePro W2100.
What is your BIOS configuration?

My attempts to install using hidinmask files are failed.

Any ideas?

Edit.

I always finish in the same place.
This is my Clover folder.
