I would love to see your EFI folder..... then copy it, run it in my dell t5000 (which I got working ages ago yet lost both the drive and the setup in the constant drift of components around my projects), and then try to help with answer.......

Hello
I have some great trouble booting the my Clover usb stick. I created the legacy boot setup using an Apple Store downloaded image of OS X Sierra 10.12.6 and I used Unibeast 7.1.1 for the image creation. I tried the EFI and insitiu install with the same results. Years before I managed to dig deeper in the Chameleon boot model and I managed to install 10.6.8, Lion and Mountain Lion. I also tested, for the sake of the experiment, different Clover versions.

My EFI folder will be attached to this post. Where I am stuck is at some hard to debug and identify Kernel panic. When I boot in verbose mode, I got the ++++++++ message, followed by a reboot. With a debug option in the APIC set, I go to a "Kernel Sierra: 2 replaces done", followed by a reboot. I can take pictures of the boot process if someone is interested.

The only main difference with the usine shipped T5500 is my Graphic Board - an AMD Radeon HD 6570. I do not have the original Nvidia on my disposition. IMO the problem goes before the graphics, I will deal with it at a later stade. Or maybe I an wrong?

Now, my experiments are shots in the dark. I tried the proposed initial kexts in this thread, some random EFIs and DSDT files. Same reboots.

I tried various boot options:
nv_disable=1 kext-dev-mode=1 dart=0 PCIRootUID=1/2/4 ( for AMD Cards, I suppose ) -v -x
And cpus=1 npci=0x2000

Here are my bios and hardware settings:

Bios Settings:
-> Drives
Raid Autodetect / AHCI

-> Performance (disabled)
Multi Core Support
HT Technology
Intel Turbo Boost
Intel Speed Step
C States Control
Hardware Prefetcher

-> Virtualization Support (All disabled)


The hardware:
Dell Precision T5500
Service Tag: 1N6P35J
Processor Type: Intel Xeon X5650@2.67GHz
Memory: 12GB (4GB * 3)
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6570
Various HDD Drives - SSD and Sata

Any clue how to debug or identify this lock will be appreciated!

@deeex, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard, CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card.
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard.

I am attempting to follow this guide to install High Sierra on my T5500 and ran into my first major problem. I have a very similar setup with 2 quadro 4000 cards and dual xeon processors.

I used the latest Unibeast to create a high Sierra installer, and chose the legacy boot options and inject the Nvidia graphics drivers.

The boot loader loads fine, I have tried a variety of boot arguments, regardless I always add -v for verbose mode to see errors.

If I select to Boot macOS Install from Install macOS High Sierra, the boot loader screen will go blank, the USB Drive will flash for a bit, and then will stop flashing. I do not see any log messages on the screen, it remains blank.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
