Installation Notes Much of this will be inspired (cough*stolen*cough from these guides): https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...3p-uhd-graphics-630-macos-high-sierra.239402/ https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...srock-z370-extreme-4-gtx-960-64gb-ram.237046/ You probably should update BIOS before you install (if you don't understand this don't do it) UEFI Settings: Set to Optimized Defaults Disable SuperIO parallel and serial ports Disable CSM Enable XHCI Handoff (USB) Check that AHCI is enabled XMP profile 1 Overclock CPU/RAM if you want Prepare USB Install key Prepare USB with UniBeast as normal with one modification: (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) Use Clover Configurator on the install USB's config.plist to check this box: Devices>USB>Fix Ownership (screen shot below) If you don't do this your USB will not boot!!! Optional: Now install (if you want to avoid automatic APFS conversion on your SSD like me) the unsoild kext to your USB key in kexts/other Tap F12 and you'll see the boot-selector and select your USB (UEFI) For more help see the normal install guide here https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.235474/ Post installation Now that macOS is installed run MutiBeast with these settings: Install supplemental update (until 10.12.3 comes out) Install Nvidia web drivers Reboot Add the audio kexts to the other folder in the EFI partition to fix audio (attached) Use Clover Configurator check fix shutdown in ACPI section SMBIOS genrerate 18,2 click generate a few times make sure serial is not in use here: https://checkcoverage.apple.com Generate UUID by using Code (Text): uuidgen command in Terminal and copy and paste that into Clover Configurator Enable TRIM (if you have SSD) Code (Text): sudo trimforce enable Optionalbut you should probably do it especially if you're going to overclock, you need the proper SSDT): Create DSDT and overclocked SSDT following this users build guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...3p-uhd-graphics-630-macos-high-sierra.239402/ He lays it out well but here's the TLDR version: DSDT: (use these instead of the ones in manoj.admlab's guide, other than that follow his guide) Search (cmd+f) for ‘HECI’ and replace all with ‘IMEI’ Search for ‘HDAS’ and replace all with ‘HDEF’ [syn] Rename _DSM methods to XDSM [sys] Fix Mutex with non-zero SyncLevel [sys] HPET Fix [sys] IRQ fix [sys] RTC Fix [sys] Skylake LPC [sys] SMBUS FixI will attach my DSDT/SSDT but be warned you really should make your own... My SSDT is set for a 4.5ghz 8600k overclock What Works EVERYTHING Sleep, shutdown, restart, audio, Ethernet, USB 3.0/3.1 What Doesn't Work Can't get the USB ports to charge my iPad (not enough current). Windows can do it but not Mac OS. I don't want to waste the time fixing it, so I'll live with it for now... Benchmarks: Notes: Can't get a stable 5GHz overclock but I don't want to waste time so I'm happy with my easy overclock (used easy mode in the BIOS). Will attach my EFI folder with serial number removed and nvram.plist removed. When you use MutiBeast, you'll generate your own. Also be warned, my EFI folder does not contain APFS.efi since I'm not using APFS.
