What doesn't work:
  • WiFi
  • Sleep/Wake (could potentially be fixed)

Step 1 - Preparing the BIOS

Booting up the computer, press the ESC key to enter the BIOS menu. In there, you'll want to press the "BIOS Setup (F10)" option. Once you're in the BIOS, change the following options:
  • Advanced
    • Built-In Device Options
      • Video Memory Size = 512 MB
    • Power Management Options
      • [x] Runtime Power Management
      • [  ] Extended Idle Power Savings
      • [x] S5 Maximum Power Savings
      • [x] SATA Power Management
      • [x] PCI Express Power Management
      • [  ] Power On from Keybkard Ports
      • [  ] Unjque Sleep State Blink Rates
    • Option ROM Launch Policy
      • Configure Option ROM Launch Policy = All UEFI

Step 2 - Preparing the Installer

See my guide here on creating the USB installer. For steps 4 & 5, follow these steps instead.

Open up the Clover installer package and click "Continue" twice. Then, click on "Change Install Location..."
Then, select the options that are listed below:

Install Clover Preference Pane is optional! If you ask me about this, I will roast you BIG TIME.
You only need it once you finish installing macOS and are installing Clover to your main drive.

   

Once Clover has been installed, open up the EFI partition (location: /Volumes/EFI/), and navigate to "EFI", then to "CLOVER"Here, you'll want to replace the config.plist file with this one:

.zip   config.plist.zip (Size: 2.97 KB / Downloads: 187)


Then, navigate to the "kexts" folder, then to "Other". In here, you'll want to drop in the required Kexts as well as any other Kexts you need for your system.

These are the required Kexts:
(download/install the "release" version if theres an option)

Step 3 - Booting & Installing

Booting to the USB drive is quite simple. Turn on the computer and press the ESC key to enter the BIOS menu. Then, you'll want to click on "Boot Menu (F9)" and select the USB Drive.

Follow the video instructions on installation:

Hey @elkoko, I've seen that before... Never had time to figure out what caused that. Do you know what version of VoodooHDA you've used?
