Can't Install High Sierra on MSI GP72VR 7RF Leopard Pro

Question

Hello Hackintosh Forum,

I have a Problem with Installing High Sierra Zone

I wanted to Install it on my Laptop MSI GP72VR 7RF Leopard Pro . Specs can be found here 

https://msi.com/Laptop/GP72VR-7RF-Leopard-Pro.html

I can't even get to the Installer

It ends up with the Error: Window Server Service only ran for 0 seconds (or something)

It would be nice if any one could help me

Thanks,

MYLX

A Question!

 

Does it work when i disable my Intel Graphic Card via Windows 10 Device Manager?

Forget about my last Post! I used a config.plist from https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config?files=1

And it worked! I will try to Install it!

@MYLX 

Post your hardware specs here, do not link to them.

Does your laptop has two Graphics adapters

This issue is called Discrete Graphics issue of High Sierra,

To bypass this you have to disable either Intel HD Graphics 630 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 from BIOS,

Check into your BIOS to see if you have any options to disable Graphics, Then try booting

Keep me updated

Unfortunately i dont have any Option to disable my Grahpic Adapter. Can i disable it in an other way? Like any Boot Flags?

 

EDIT: I did just an Update for my BIOS but it didn't add any Options to disable my Graphics Adapter

    • @riddlemeright You have not posted any pictures regarding ACPI Error, without pictures I can not debug Also you need to post your full hardware specs
    • @Douglas Dreer use ATH9KFixup.kext with Lilu.kext also you need to add -ath9485 as boot-flag in clover config
    • @tdtech959 Without any pictures of kernel panic it is really hard to debug, but anyhow have you installed whatevergreen.kext with lilu.kext   i had a weird kernel panic when my onboard graphics was turned on, I was able to select external graphics card via BIOS settings as default. are you sure if the USB is the actual problem.
    • Has anyone managed to run the atheros 9485 run on Mojave? I even managed to make it recognize, but it can not find any network.
    • Hello everyone  I have installed High Sierra and updated to 10.13.6 before installing nVidea web drivers. After everything was installed (Kexts and the driver) everything booted fine. Graphics worked perfectly. My onboard USB did not work but I have some generic NEC USB 2.0 card that works fine. After a reboot later in the day, I had a weird kernel panic. It spit out strings no longer than 30 charters and then proceeded to reboot. I have not seen this type of panic . This happened when using the onboard USB 3.0 controller but was fixed by removing the device. But now I'm not sure what caused this. I have reinstalled about 15 times already. Here are my specs: ASUS B150 Plus D3 Intel Pentium G4400 ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 2GB WD Blue 500GB HDD 8GB Ram Some generic wireless card (That works) Thanks -T
