Hey guys,

I decide to clean install High Sierra because it was upgrade so first attempt I hit the OSInstall.mkpg missing but today I made 10.13.2 USB which cannot even get to installer. What I have tried:

1. 10.13.2 USB with Unibeast
2. 10.13.2 USB with Unibeast + latest FakeSMC
2. 10.13.2 USB with Unibeast + latest FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement
2. 10.13.2 USB with Unibeast with Clover 4318 version (latest) + latest FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement
2. 10.13.2 USB with Unibeast with Clover 4318 version (latest)

Every time I boot from "Install OS X ...USB", I hit the black screen with ++++++ signs.... any idea what to check try ...etc

I plan to create manual USB with Apple native software + native Clover upgrade.

That system was running High Sierra 10.3.0 so its supported.
still not a help thread......

I had lots of issues with the EVO 960 M.2 NVMe. Solution that worked for me was going into terminal (before disk utility) and running the "diskutil list" command. I could see the EVO 960 NVMe SSD in there. Then ran a format command to format it before going to disk utility. Command was "diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ Name_Here /dev/disk0" you will have to get the disk name from the previous command, mine was "disk0".

Then exit terminal, load up Disk Utility, and you should (fingers crossed) see your NVMe. Then, erase it (like normal), and move through installation. Best of luck!
Good info.
I just installed MacOS on an EVO 850 normal SATA SSD, I have Windows 10 on the 960 EVO.
I'm hoping one day in the future to install MacOS on a fast M.2, but I want it to be painless.
(we already have other odd issues to worry about now days with running hacks, don't want to add storage to my list...lol)

I have a 3770K with a Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H motherboard, with just the graphics on the board. I really struggled with this install, more than normal. The Multibeast install, with my typical options would hang with the apple logo, then MACH REBOOT ERROR. I tried dropping the MATS table, but still no luck.

I did a scratch install 2 times thinking I did something with Multibeast that was hanging it.

I noticed that my boot options in my bios was very weird, displaying "clover" drives that were never there before, so i decided to give it a shot, and update my bios. I was on F14 level (2012) I think, and I upgraded to the most recent bios version from Gigabyte, and magically everything works perfectly.

I'm a bit surprised that that did it for me, as all the other installs (up to Sierra) worked just fine.

Hope it helps someone.
