Hey there, I currently have a working, fully functional system, but just got an NVMe drive installed that I'd like to boot macOS on it. I can't seem to get to the installer on the flashdrive using the latest BIOS. Is anyone else experiencing this? I can boot to the UEFI on the USB stick (granted, it takes a very long time) then after selecting the "external" partition to boot to with the installer on it, I get the apple logo and a load bar that is stuck at 0/1% and does not move no matter how long I leave it. Is this an issue with the new BIOS? 10.13 has native support for NVMe so I am looking to utilize that with a fresh install on a new drive, using the old SATA one as storage. If I can get to the installer on the USB flashdrive, I'll be all set.

Something interesting that happened when I booted to the clover boot screen on my current funtionsal hackintosh drive, then booted to the external partition on the flash drive, it worked until I clicked "Install Mac OS X" where I got the error, "Recovery server could not be contacted." Strange! Any advice? I've contributed to this thread before, regarding getting audio to work on this board in OS X, but curious if anyone is having this issue as of late.

I believe I have all the correct BIOS settings, however "USB Configuration > XHCI Hand Off > Enabled" has been removed from newer revisions. Though this hasn't caused me any problems with recent installations (I guess until now).

EDIT: Downgraded the BIOS to version 3201 to get that setting back and it is now working with the newest version of UniBeast created flashdrive.

Just updated to High Sierra.
Everything works fine except the Bluetooth..
WiFi is OK.

I got the Bluetooth status icon in menu bar, but when I click on it, it says "Bluetooth: Not Available."
In the System Preferences there is no Bluetooth icon.

I did this step:
Download RehabMan's bundle RehabMan/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM
2 kexts required
  • BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext
  • BrcmPatchRam2.kext
Place both kexts on the desktop. Download KextBeast 2.0.1 and install to /L/E.

But when I try the next one:
Next download this script from toleda's repo wireless_bcm94352-110-v4.0.command.zip (you may have to run script again after a 10.11.X update).

I get this error:
wireless_bcm94352-110.command_v4.0c
OS X Version: 10.13.6 is not supported
No system files were changed
