Yeah oddly enough it didn’t do that... I wonder if that cpu damaged the motherboard?
Have you tried clearing CMOS? Remember to disconnect the power cable before clearing CMOS.

I'm waiting for some new parts to come in and try this. Never tried it without powercable, thought power was needed to be in to clear it.

No. It's important to NOT have power when clearing CMOS.

I have found some problem with creating working installation drive for High sierra for this build. Whille boot stucks after whole installation, I decided to replicate system disk from simillar bulid, and viola! No problem with boot, no problem at all.
Did anyone found difficulties with creating working installation USB for High Sierra?

Nope. Did you use UniBeast to create your USB installation thumb drive?

Does anyone know of the Ranger version of this motherboard would work with this tutorial? I can't seem to find a decently prices Hero. Or anyone want to chime in how much they paid for theirs.

Sure - here we go. OC runs very smooth. Beneath is a short ramp up of whats working / not working.

Please keep in mind that I set "show picker" to false in my config.plist to get a "real macOS" feeling using only hotkeys on boot to enter Win10. ;-)

Here's whats working so far:
  • Sound via HDMI (GFX) = OK
  • Sound (analog/digital Input and Output) via motherboard = OK
  • iMessage including SMS forwarding = OK
  • Instant Hotspot (iPhone 11) = OK
  • iPhone calls (iPhone 11) = OK
  • AirPlay (Audio and Video) = OK
  • Bluetooth = OK
  • Handoff/Continuity (iPhone > Hack) = OK
  • Handoff/Continuity (Hack > iPhone) = OK
  • Universal clipboard (iPhone > Hack) = OK
  • Universal clipboard (Hack > iPhone) = OK
  • AirDrop (Hack > iPhone) = OK
  • AirDrop (iPhone > Hack) = OK
  • Continuity camera = OK
  • Sidecar (iPad Pro 12,9" 2018) = OK
  • Apple Pay (via iPhone / AppleWatch) = OK
  • Sleep = OK
And here's whats not working
  • Auto unlock with Apple Watch = NOK
    • I successfully activated my Apple Watch in the system preferences to unlock my hack. But when I locked my account and want to unlocked via the watch, it just provides the typical information like "Unlocking with Apple Watch" ... this lasts for about 2-3 seconds and then suddenly change to password input field. :crazy:
      With clover unlocking works fine

EDIT: After setting both hibernatemode and proximitywake to 0 the sleepmode seems to work fine. :headbang:
This is very cool, aside from the shared EFI (THANK YOU!) could you make a rough bullet point of the steps or what is different from the original guide to do a new install and/or migration? It sounds like OpenCore is really reducing the quirk level and I'm really looking forward to that right now for this build.

Concerns about this being in beta still seem to no longer be a serious consideration with all the movement to OpenCore. Every single post I'm seeing with newer OpenCore builds is a significant improvement over Clover.
