Major issue has surfaced: I have updated the BIOS to v 1406, because I thought maybe that's getting in the way of the Thunderbolt card working in Mac (it is fully functional under Windows, but what's not??).
So after restoring the BIOS settings as per guide now I cannot boot anymore into Mac (still can into Windows). I run into an error probably related to the NVidia driver, despite I have stopped it from running by using the nv_disable=1 boot argument: I get the dreaded "busy timeout[0], (60s): 'AppleACPICPU'" message and the system stalls. :banghead:

What should I do now?

I was thinking trying to run again from USB, but since today I cannot download the latest 10.13.6 installer, because Apple has just moved to Mojave and I have used the USB for file transfer and whatnot since I had a stable system for more than a week by now. :banghead::banghead:

[EDIT] Second crisis is overcome by looking for a clean install of High Sierra. After following the breadcrumbs, I have landed on the right page of the full installer on this page, at nr 4:

I read through your guide as the system is quite similar. I just recently upgraded to a Asus Prime Z370-P with a i7-8700. I have previously managed to install hackintosh, but on my old system.

I can't seem through to the installer, after selecting USB drive in Clover the system shows the apple logo and restarts, both verbose and safe mode mentions something with hibernation before a long row of ++++++++ before rebooting. Seems to be a common issue but the common solutions doesn't really help.

(If this question belongs somewhere else please point me in the right direction, thanks!)

First crisis is also overcome by reinstalling the NVidia drivers. More specifically, throwing 387.10.10.15.15.108 out the window and reinstalling 387.10.10.10.40.105 instead. I am back at having 4K and sound but Thunderbolt is not working in OSX (only Windows).

For audio you only need AppleALC with layoutId 7.

You should also add kexts:
FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext
FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext
FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext
FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext
FakeSMC_SMMSensors.kext
and you will be able to access temperatures from your CPU.

I can't get it to work with the UHD 630 (i7 8700 non "k"), have all exact same settings. Any ideas? In verbose mode everything goes just as usual, then when it has to load the apple logo I get black screen.

I have the same board and had a successful High Sierra working...

I cloned the install to a SSD and successfully booted to it.. made a mac RAID via Disk Utility from 2 M.2's and cloned the backup over to that.. couldn't get it to boot properly, and after mucking with resetting BIOS and setting it up per the guide, I cannot get any of these drives to boot - trying to reinstall gets me to Clover, but selecting one of the two drives with High Sierra on it produces an Apple with progress bar for a few seconds, and then garbled graphics in a small line against a black screen ..

Vega64 card, and it was all working fine.. anyone know what BIOS setting has messed up my ability to get previously working installs to load?

I just clean installed 10.14.1 it looks working well for everything. I have the same hardware except GPU that I use RX580.
I have a problem with USB3.0 ports that work only Flash drive(USB2.0) because when I tried with external Hard drive(USB3.0) that it's not working but Windows 10 works just fine.
Help me please.
