Hi friends !
For installation of High Sierra on Asus ROG STRIX -X99 with intel core i7-6850 ; Nvidia GTX graphics ;NVMe SSD you don't need to go through any complicated configurations ; just copy apple store's High Sierra installer package via terminal to a USB flash drive >>install latest Clover bootloader to the USB flash drive with UEFI (booting only) to create EFI partition on the flash drive.Copy my prepared EFI-Folder to that USB drive and replace it.
For the BIOS setting :
-In Advance mode >Load Optimized Defaults.
-Ai Tweaker> ASUS Multicore Enhancement-Disabled.
>Internal PLL Overvoltage Disabled.
-Advanced\CPU Configuration\CPU Power Management Configuration\Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology - Disabled.
-Advanced\USB Configuration\EHCI Hand-Off - Disabled.
-Advanced\Onboard Devices Configuration\Serial Port Configuration\Serial Port - Off.
-Boot> Fast Boot-Disabled.
-Boot\CSM(Compatibility Support Mode> Launch CSM - Disabled.
-Boot\Secure Boot>OS Type -Other OS.
Hit F10 key and click OK.
Now Restart the computer with USB drive.
In clover boot manager hit the space on your keyboard , select -v and nv_disable=1
and click Enter.
After installation completed ,install clover bootloader to your NVMe SSD(or other SSD) the way you did for USB installer.
Replace the EFI folder of your OS drive with my prepared EFI folder and install Nvidia web driver for the GTX- Graphics.
All your onboard devices (except WiFi) will work perfectly.

Good Luck.

Hi Windhealer ! Onboard Wi-Fi will not work here. You have to purchase third party compatible wireless adapter.

First of all, thank you very much for your post ;)
Everything works like a charm... but my nvme SSD appears as an external drive (orange color).

Any ideas?

Have a nice day

I have tried all the steps you have mentioned, but i can't go to Clover screen when i select the pendrive to boot.
I installed Clover with UniBeast and then replaced the EFI folder with the one you gave.
My specs are:
i7-5820K
Asus X99 Strix Motherboard
Asus Strix GTX 980ti
and
2GB WD Black (For hackintosh)

Please Guide Me.

Hi MadGear77! You try to create your High Sierra USB flash drive terminal command way.Open terminal and paste the fallowing command :sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app
where MyVolume is your USB Flash drive.Then install latest clover boot loader on it to create EFI on USB drive.Now you replace EFI folder of USB flash drive with EFI folder , provided by me. Start computer with the installer. Hope will work.
Good Luck.
Sorry for the late response , cause I was out of the country and away from the computer.

Hey, I’m wondering if you’re still here on this thread. Anyway, I’ve gotten to the clover boot loader screen and put in the boot args, but when I try and install I get to a bunch of plusses. I haven’t yet replaced the EFI partition on the flash drive with yours. Could that be it?
