I'd like to try that also!Hi Guys,
For years I've been working on an old Asus P5P43TD Pro and Intel Q9650 with Gainward GTX 460 2GB.
That platform is on someones other hands and I have no access anymore to it.
Hackintosh was working very well on that.
Can anyone share the USB image to start-up the UEFI to install the Sierra or High Sierra?
I can't find it on the net - the image/config that would start up on my rig (i7 8700K, Asus Z370 TUF Pro, Intel 630 graphics on the CPU (untill MSI GTX 1060 arrives).
I've already tested severall images, but no luck so far.
Without an access to HackMac - it seems to be quite frustrating.
I got it, turn off the ram overclock aka profile 1 aka XMP from bios. this will get sleep working for you.No, sleep is not working for me either. I am planning on looking into this though.
Would you recommend updating BIOS to the latest firmware on the ASUS website? Did you update BIOS?Introduction
I spent a lot of time on trial and error with this build due to my monitor / 4k setup, so some of my choices may be due to the boot results I wanted.
These are my system specs:
Mobo: ASUS Z370 TUF Plus GamingUEFI BIOS Settings
CPU: Intel Core i7 8700k
GPU: EVGA 1080 Ti SC2 Black Edition
Ram: 32GB G.SKILL TridentZ 3200 DDR4 (2x16GB)
Wireless: TP-Link Archer T9E AC1900 PCIE adapter
macOS Drive: Samsung 960 EVO M.2 500GB
Win10 Drive: Samsung 850 EVO M.2 500GB
Case: Fractal Design Meshify C
Monitor: Samsung 49" 4K TV connected by HDMI 2.0 cable and CLUB3D CAC-1070 DisplayPort 1.2A to HDMI 2.0 UHD 4K 60Hz Adapter
The one important difference here for my setup is that by disabling CSM I am able to get the full 4k resolution in Clover and the startup process.
- VT-d = Off
- Fast Boot = On
- Secure Boot = Disabled (you have to clear out any existing keys to disable secure boot)
- CSM = Disabled
Installing macOS High Sierra
I wanted to have an HFS drive for the time being, so I followed the installation steps to skip APFS conversion found in this post.

- I downloaded and installed Clover Configurator. Using CC I installed the latest version of Clover.
- Reboot system and make sure you can boot off of your Hard Drive now
- Download and install the latest Nvidia Web Drivers
I currently use an Android smartphone, so I have not gone through the process of getting a working Message app. That is well documented in other places though.
- Wireless adapter (works out of the box)
- USB 3.0
- Sound via USB ports (Have not tested audio on analog ports)
