Anyone installed High Sierra 10.13.6 in legacy mode?

Has anyone been able to install High Sierra 10.13.6 in a legacy setup? I have been forced to reinstall 10.13 because 10.13.6 would get me the dredded No Entry / Prohibited access screen...

Doing a verbose boot I would get :

AppleUSBHostResources@: AppleUSBHostResources::allocateDownstreamBusCurrentGated: assuming successful wakeUnits 1000 sleepUnits 0

Still waiting for root device

My setup is build around a:

  • P6T Deluxe v2 (Core i7 LGA1366 Intel X58 chipset) motherboard NON UEFI / LEGACY
  • GTX 260 * 2 SLI
  • Enoch r2922 installed in the EFI partition

 

I am digging hard around the net to figure out what I need to do to make 10.13.6 from App Store work (when it is installed I get the No Entry screen unless I boot from a USB key and the Ethernet card for some reason appears to be restricted only to local IPs).

Try pressing 6 before Darwin appears, then in installation, click customize, then deselect Clover bootloader. Worked for me using a bios only system

Thank you for your help. But my problem is not actually with the initial install of High Sierra. Installing High Sierra from Hackzone usb (after some tinkering) works fine. Issue really start to happen after installing the App Store 10.13.6 update.
