I'm on the same boat with same Mother Board. I think too that is a bios setting related problem, but can't figure which. Did you solve the problem?

Hey In-N-Out,

I am still having problems getting HS installed. Now my installation freezes about half way loading. I tried in -v mode and got the same exact information when installing Sierra, but HS will not begin to install, but Sierra installs. I'm thinking maybe I have something in my bios that is preventing me. I used your guide and plist and kext as a guide and still nothing. If possible, could you please let me know what bios version you are using and what are your current bios settings. I am just trying to go thru the process of elimination. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

winky1060: I'm running F22a for my BIOS. If memory serves me correctly that hang usually indicates that the BIOS setting for Super I/O Serial Port is enabled when it should be disabled. Please confirm?

These were my settings via the prior BIOS but these same settings are applied to the F22a BIOS.

Hi In-N-Out,
I'm running f22a too and put your bios setup with no luck.
Always stuck at 50% bar with rotating wheel. Also tried a second boot usb with no nvidia card and only Intel GPU. No way.

Can you post your booting configuration/kexts/config.plist?
Thanks!

I will not ever able to replicate what I've done but after many trials with your clover settings finally I installed High Sierra!!!
Now I'll try to install the GTX970 drivers...

Thanks again!

Of course this is just the beginning... Now multibeast does not see the Mac installation SSD (apfs) but only the USB when I'm going to build. So I cannot boot directly from the main SSD...

Glad to hear it! :)

Multibeast hasn't been released yet for HS. :) You have to make sure you're running the latest version of Clover and you've put apfs.efi in your Clover directory under drivers64UEFI (see below). With regard to the drivers you can just manually extract them from the latest multibeast. I just had to extract IntelMausiEthernet-v2.3.0.pkg and run it manually. For sound just run Toleda's audio_cloverALC-130_v0.3.command. Good luck and read, read, read. :)

Hey In-N-Out,

I finally got it installed. Yes I did verify that my SuperI/O Serial Port was disabled. What I did was changed my graphics card to the Nvidia 1060 and I used the DVI to HDMI cable to install instead of HDMI to HDMI cable. I had read in other threads here that many used the DVI and got it installed, so I gave that a try...and it worked. I think this is what made the difference for me. Once installed, I changed my cable to the HDMI to HDMI and it is ok so far. Only my desktop background picture is not sized correctly. According to my display properties, my screen resolution is set to 2560x1080. I have the LG 2K 34" Ultrawide monitor. This happened when I installed the Nvidia Web Drivers. After installing HS and getting to the desktop for the first time, my picture was sized correctly. Not sure how to fix that. I Attached pictures to show what I am trying to explain.

Thanks for your help man, I think you helped me a lot to get started with HS.
