Won't Boot without USB

Recommended Posts


I am completely new to Hackintosh. I installed Mac OS High Sierra on my laptop. But my laptop won't detect the hard drive when I try to boot it up again. 
Only if I insert the USB Stick (from where I installed Mac OS) Mac OS will boot. So the Bootloader (Clover) is only installed on the USB Stick.

I tried installing Clover on my Hardrive without success. I tried using the Clover installer and creating a new partition to install it to.

I tried everything.

Also, these things aren't working:

1. Screen Resolution / Nvidia Driver -->  I can't even see everything in Clover Configuration. A lot of things are just cut off. I tried installing the Web Nvidia Driver. I also have now this small Nvidia Logo in the right upper corner  

2. Audio

3. Sound 

4. Wifi (I heard that it mostly won't work on laptops) 


My Specs:

Asus R500VD (Laptop model)

6 GB of Rams

Intel Core i5-3210m

Nvidia GTX-610m 2gb


I hope you can help me out, guys.

Thank you very much, Joshua
