Problem with High Sierra 10.13.2 Update

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm quite new here and I've been having some issues getting Hackintosh Zone High Sierra working on my Lenovo M900 Tiny (i3 6100t cpu, 8gb of RAM, 250gb Samsung 850 evo m.2 sata ssd and 2TB Samsung HDD). MacOS is installed on the SSD, the HDD is just for storage.

Installing the original 10.13 High Sierra went largely without issue with Hackintosh Zone (after much trial and error with various Hackintosh builds), but when I try to update it to 10.13.2, after installing the update it gets a little way through the on-screen script/booting process and then just restarts and keeps doing so. At the suggestion of another thread possibly on this site I downloaded and put in lilu.kext in the efi partition as instructed (there wasn't one there already, could this be an issue? the kext file I mean, not the efi partition) on a fresh install of High Sierra and exactly the same thing happened again.

Is there something else I need to do when updating or am I missing something here?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I had the same thing happen. Mine updated to .1 but not to .2.

Same as you it did a reboot. There was a weird green flash as that happened on my monitor too right at the end when it did the auto reboot.

No solution yet.

An update on the situation, through experimenting with Clover boot options, I've found the problem to be caused by a kernel panic, though what's causing that I'm not sure. This can be circumvented by booting in single-user mode and then exiting straight out.

After installing 10.13.2 what kind of kernel panic are you having?

I need a clear picture or video to debug

My kernel panic was not so easy to catch so I took a video.

The first part is the initial boot, and then after I show booting again a couple more times.

I got the pic of mine by selecting the option not to reboot if a kernel panic occurs when in the clover bootloader, when one is encountered, it just stops.

@HowlingMad & @blast9999 

I think you both need to update Lilu.kext before upgrading High Sierra to 10.13.2

Here is the version of Lilu.kext which is compatible with 10.13.2, You can find Lilu.kext in /L/E

 

In-case if that fix doesn't work; you can use

-liluoff 

kernel-flag to disable to disable Lilu.kext from loading

Yeah, that solved the problem for me, when I updated lilu before I put it on the EFI boot partition by mistake.

Cheers Niresh, much appreciated, and thank you so much for your work on this Hackintosh build :)

I see the older Lilu.kext in /L/E. How do I update with the new one?

Just delete the old and copy the new one in its place, or do I have to repair permissions?

Thanks!

Thanks! That worked and it updated to .2

it still did not fix my onboard graphics like .6 did with Sierra. 

Any suggestions?

I’d like to keep using the HD4600 but I can put the 610 card in if that’s a better option.
