Host-level exception raised error before High Sierra installation screen

Question

Hi guys, I really need some help. This is my first attempt at a Hackintosh. I am installing to a completely fresh hard drive, no Windows or any partitions involved. I'm trying to install High Sierra using Niresh's Hackintosh Zone High Sierra installer on my laptop but I'm getting stuck after booting from Clover. After booting in verbose mode, it takes about a minute of loading to eventually reach an error saying:

iMac.local com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.WindowServer) <Notice>: Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.
iMac.local com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] <Error>: Host-level exception raised: pid = 559, thread = 0xb87f, exception type = 0xd, codes = { 0 }, states = { 0 }

I've found some forums where people have said the discrete graphics card should be disabled from the BIOS, but my BIOS does not have an option to disable it. I've tried multiple different Clover configurations with many different boot flag variants. I'm not sure if the error is even graphics related. 

I have limited knowledge when it comes to Hackintosh, I've tried everything I can, any help would be really appreciated. I've watched YouTube tutorials on people installing Mac on the same laptop with the same specs, and I copied the exact BIOS settings and the exact Clover configs and boot flags, I still get the same error.

My specs are as follows: 

Model: Dell Inspiron 5559

Processor: Intel Core i7-6500U @ 2.50GHz

Display: 15,6" @ 1366x768, Non-Touchscreen

Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 520 + AMD Radeon R5 M335

RAM: 8 GB

Windows 10 (I am using a separate HDD to install Mac on)

 

Thanks so much in advance,

Michael

I have the same problem. Some forums said I'll have to disable my external graphics card before running the installer. I don't have the option in my BIOS to do so though 

 

Could you figure it out yet?

    • @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
