Find & Copy your System Config.plist

Note: Remember that if you didn’t find the exact config.plist file for your system, use one that approaches to your system.

Also, you might find your prepared config.plist file just by a quick googling.

    You can’t read mac formatted partitions in Windows. It’s a raw image and it’s writing the HFS filesystem. Maybe with transmac you can add things. Under linux it’s not a problem to write the image, and after installing the hfs-tools you can actually read and write the usb stick.

    When I write extract the Install macOS Sierra.raw file and use the new extracted file in the Win32DiskImager, the usb no more is readable in Windows 10.
    It has not Fat32. Using Paragon Partition Manager™ 15 Professional, I underestand that the partition of the usb is Apple HFS (which can not be accessed in windows).
    I used HFSexplorer to open that in windows but is this disk there is no EFI folder.

    Please help!

  21. Billy Reply

    followed the directions exactly…there is no clover folder. had to download an HFS file browser. i used all the files linked in the article.

    1. Mukhtar Jafari Reply

      Do you have EFI Partition from USB device on your computer?
      If Yes then go to EFI partition> EFI Folder> Clover Folder. Change the Config.plist file according to your system configuration.

  22. Jar Jar Binks Reply

    I got as far as copying the config.plist but cannot copy ist onto the USB Stick as the PC Wangs it to be formatted. I cannot access the USB at all. I then tried different formatting of the USB none of which allowed me then even to copy the image file onto it. So I am entirely stuck.

      Then, I got to format it via diskpart as it is not even shown between the devices list. What to do? Tried with bot 2.0 and 3.0 usbs, both Kingston

      1. Paul

        it is shown in the diskmgmt.msc
        With 2 partitions: one of 6.36GB and one of 200MB
        But I can’t seem to do anything with them

      2. Mukhtar Jafari

        200 MB is the file System. This method is one of the ways to install macOS Sierra on PC. But there are other methods as well that you can check them. Like UniBeast.

    This worked for me on a Kaby Lake i5-7500 with Nvidia GTX 1050Ti (NV Gen2 config.plist) and Intel 630.
    If you are using Kaby Lake, the version here is pre 10.12.6 so you must set the FakeCPUID to 0x0506E3 (same as Skylake) in order to boot. I also updated FakeSMC.kext to RehabMan’s 2017-1017 version in Clover\kexts\other
    For the 1050ti, you need to install the Nvidia web drivers so I recommend installing with the Intel 630 graphics firstly. Thanks!

    I couldn’t do step 11 and 12, after Win32diskimager ended to write, i can’t browse my USB device anymore.
    Win 32 disk imager says: An error occurred when attempting to get a handle on the device. Error 5: Access is denied.

    I tried to continue and to install. I succeed to boot on the USB key and i get the clover menu. Nevertheless, i got the error: mac-f22788aa

    Any idea ?

    Ciao, ho creato una pendrive con win32diskimager-1.0.0, scaricando ciò che serviva come da guida.
    La pendrive è stata creata correttamente, però alla fine windows non la rileva per poter modificare il file config.plist. L’ho avviata ugualmente, escono le varie scelte della clover, seleziono quella d’installazione, fa una sfilza di scritte e poi la macchina si riavvia posizionandosi nuovamente sulle varie scelte. Quindi non sono riuscitto ad installare Sierra. Datemi qualche delucidazione grazie.

      Make sure you format it before writing the image to the USB and also make sure that you use the Raw image file of macOS while selecting the file.

    can’t write to usb, nothing in the disk and i can’t open it also. windows is saying to format it. the disk size is reduced to just half now. I had to go to disk management to delete the volume and then format it again. either the file is corrupt or this option is not working.

      Firstly, you need to format it to Fat32 then use that drive on Win32DiskImager. Also, make sure you use .Raw image of macOS on Win32DiskImager otherwise it will not work.

    problem with the config.plist file.
    i tried all the files from the link in this page,
    and checked also other websites, from tonymac86 with all sorts and types of patches, yet also from github (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config/blob/master/config_HD3000_1366x768_7series.plist) that did not work.
    it is stuck on the apple log after 55% (when the logo “circle with 300 degree line” appear ).
    it is just about the correct config.plist file.
    There are 2 cards,
    (1)Name Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
    Bits/Pixel 32
    Resolution 1366 x 768 x 60 hertz
    Driver Version 10.18.10.3316
    (2)Name AMD Radeon R7 M265
    the question, can you present the config.plist file that will work here??

      1. OF

        from what i saw in other websites during the week
        acer aspire i5-4200 with intel hd cards
        might work
        yet there’s work to perform on the config_plist
        that per configuration work with kext work (patches,) perhaps other participants in the forum prepared such file??

      2. Faiz Orz Post author

        So that’s nice. You can follow the guide mentioned on that site because here I want to help, but I can’t help, since I haven’t tried on any Acer laptop. We have the general guide but seems that it’s not working for you. So you need to find an exclusive guide for your notebook.

      3. OF

        i will prepare that and email you the file
        *** pehaps we can prepare files to much more particualr cases, best-r8!!! ,

      4. OF

        it worked a bit . it is not collapsed .
        yet there are other issues. i will work on these.
        The problems that i solved were with including various kext (FakeSMC and Voodo and GenericUSB) including the file HFSPlus.efi (from GitHub) and booting with the “include kext” and “without ceches”

      5. OF

        you aks ” what’s going on?? ”
        The issue is that from various websites, they said that on laptop with hard disk with windows, installing also macos will cause issues. they said install first macos and then windows, or purchase second hard drive. what do know about that??

    The file above used is an ISO image file? coz I had recently downloaded Mavericks ISO file !! if I’ll use the same method and select that iso file then it will work? coz I know that macOS Sierra will not work on my…old PC (may face some lags) !!
    2nd) If yes then in which FS should be NTFS or Fat32 ?
    3rd) It will or Mac(0.9 and later version) supports UEFI or not?

    1. Faiz Orz Post author Reply

      It is not an ISO file it Raw, and I think the ISO of Mavericks won’t work with this method.
      Always use Fat32, and it supports the UEFI.

  84. 1631991 Reply

    Recently, I need to work with Xcode for school homework and sometimes I do them at home, without a Macbook. So, from a friend’s story, I learnt that it is possible to install Mac OS X on a computer or laptop that runs Windows.

    I immediately started my research and intended to install Sierra on my old friend Toshiba Portege R705-P35, who has been with me since 2011, currently dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 16.04.2. I began with this tutorial on WikiGain. I followed it correctly except for two things: I worked with Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and didn’t add the Config.plist file as the tutorial suggested thinking it wasn’t necessary because my laptop doesn’t have a dedicated graphics card.

    I thought I was safe after getting into Clover’s menu but eventually hit a wall. No matter what I tried, every booting attempt ended at “Still waiting for boot device” with a blocked sign and garbled text.

    My laptop’s specifications (copied straight from CNET);

    Toshiba Portege R705-P35
    Processor: 2.26GHz Intel Core i3
    Memory: 4GB, 1,066MHz DDR3
    Hard drive: 500GB 5,400rpm
    Chipset: Intel HM55
    Graphics: Intel GMA HD (integrated)
    Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

    Here are what I tried:
    Changed SATA mode to AHCI and left it so for every later boot.
    Changed to another USB port.
    Unplugged then replugged the USB to the same port and to another port after the error message displayed.
    These boot flags (I don’t know if they are relevant to my case but everywhere people suggested trying them so I tried):
    npci=x2000 -v -x UseKernelCache=No
    cpus=1 npci=x2000 -v -x UseKernelCache=No
    USBBusFix=yes USBLegacyOff=yes
    Recreated the bootable USB.

    As I don’t have access to a Macbook, I can’t try other solutions that require software which only run in Mac OS.

    From the message, I understand that somehow the installer lost contact with the USB mid-installation and failed to continue. As I observed when I replugged the USB, its light flashed for one second then immediately went out. I used a brand new Gigastone U207 USB 2.0 Drive so I don’t suppose the problem is with the bootable USB itself.

    Any suggestion is much appreciated. Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Mukhtar Jafari Reply

      First I really appreciate that you followed every step of our article. Plz check out our other guides related to this question. We have posted lots of more articles about installation of Macos on different platforms.

      Also check your laptop compatibility with MACOS. Is it compatible or No.

      1. 1631991

        Thank you for the swift reply 🙂

        My laptop is rather old so I couldn’t find much reference online. Regarding compatibility, I did a quick check before doing this and found out that my laptop CPU (Intel Core i3 370M Arrandale) is compatible except that some tweaking is needed for the GPU to work. I think I read this website here: http://osxarena.com/2015/09/hardware-compatibility-list-for-hackintosh-mac-os-x/.

        Given that Sierra is over the top for my laptop, I am considering trying older versions such as El Capitan or Maverick and a different software like TransMac next.

        I will follow this tutorial on your website https://www.wikigain.com/create-bootable-usb-installer-for-mac-transmac/ and see how it will turn out.

        By the way, what is your opinion on distros of Mac OS X. Many said that they are easier to work with and that after I get them up and running, I can use them to get the official dmg from Apple for a fresh installation. Talking of dmg, I couldn’t get my hand on one for Maverick. I downloaded one or two but none seemed to allow booting after I used them to create a bootable USB with Win32DiskImager.

        Again, thanks for your help. Much much appreciated!

I just wanted to ask If you have updated your raw file to the latest Apple release Sierra version 12.2.3 and to the latest clover bootloader?

      Use AMD Legacy and when you create the USB Installer don’t extract the Raw file use that in Win32DiskImager. If you extract that then you will have 2 files and when writing them to the USB then it’s not going to work because you need to use the Raw file in Win32DiskImager.

        I tried writing to the disk but after I finished it, I can’t open the disk, it asks me to format when i click on it

        Hey, when you create the USB Installer don’t extract the Raw file use that in Win32DiskImager. If you extract that then you will have 2 files and when writing them to the USB then it’s not going to work(saying need to be format). So you need to use the Raw file in Win32DiskImager.

      Hey dear julyann,

      Have your try boot flag’s like nv_disable=1 if yes then I am sorry for you, I can’t give wrong suggestion.
      Also I think that your laptop might not be compatible with macOS.

    Hey, I can’t seem to make my windows 10 laptop to open up my EFI ( flash drive). It can’t seem to recognize it.

      Hey dear, Seems that you have extracted the macOS file twice that’s why. Just download the macOS File from the link above and extract it one time then you will have a Raw file. Use that in the Win32DiskImager.

    What plist file do I use for Core i5-6400 with onboard HD530 graphics for a desktop system?

    I also have an old Nvidia GT210, what plist file does that need?

      1. bob

        That is what I had used, the laptop HD5xx and nvidia legacy
        I think my issue is something to do with the mouse, It gets to VoodooPS2Mouse then stops, then after a short while the writing goes scrambled and I get a white no entry sign in the midle of the screen.
        I have tried different mice, different USB ports, even a USB mouse plugged into the PS2 port via an adaptor but they dont work.
        Any ideas?

      2. bob

        Update:
        It isnt the mouse, but it doesnt work with the onboard gfx, it always does the writing goes scrambled and I get a white no entry sign in the middle of the screen.

        With nvidia GT210
        get apple logo
        select language
        says installing, minutes count down to zero
        black screen flash white writing
        monitor off
        BIOS screen
        black screen white writing
        Welcome screen – select country
        select keyboard
        how do you connect – select ethernet & DHCP
        then some more white writing says
        unmount of /home failed (45)
        unmount of /net failed (45)
        and it reboots back to BIOS screen then back to the Welcome screen – select country

        Any idea how to get this working?

    AFter Diskimager says “write complete” my USB drive is not accessible from Windows, it says it needs to be formatted. I unplug it and plug it again and nothing appears in My computer, so I go into disk Manager and the USB stick has 3 partitions on it
    200MB EFI system partition
    6.36GB Primary partition (but no drive letter assigned and not possible to assign one)
    the rest is as unallocated space

    Whats going on?

      Hey dear bob,
      Seems that you have not extracted the macOS Files if did it then you have twice extracted. Just extract the macOS file once and you will get a Raw file with no extension after that use Win32DiskImager to write the Raw files to USB. Hope that it should be helpful.

      Use Intel HD 4600 Config.plist file and when you get into Clover Menu then make sure you boot with (nv_disable=1) Boot flag.

      Open Win32DiskImager then Select your USB and click Browse then choose the File that you place in your Desktop (Install macOS Sierra) then finally write this to your USB Device. If didn’t work use another USB.

      You can give a try to Gen 1 if it’s GT Nvidia and also you can use Intel HD graphics because you can pass the Nvidia by Nv_disable=1 boot flag.

    Hi. I created the bootable USB on my Win7 PC, but after the “win32…” utility completes the process the USB disappears from my computer so I can’t finish all the steps. Same result when I tried with different USB. I checked both USBs on a Win7 notebook – also not showing up in My Computer, only on Device Manager under Storage Devices. Clover boots tough on both stations.

        ok, settled the USB part and replacing the config. turned out, need to be on windows 8 laptop to detect the USB( before this im using windows 7 on pc). then i faced another problem xD, i managed to boot into clover, but the interface is not the same as shown in the video,

        Have you placed your config.plist file to USB Installer? If yes then try another one.

        It was the configuration file. I tried all of them and only one was different. It had gray diagonal lines going across the screen and between the lines, i could tell it was the stuff going down my screen before and the first screen of the mac setup mixed together and it was all screwed up.

    After extracting the “Install macOS Sierra.raw” file, I got two files instead of one. they are “disk image.hfsx” and “EFI System Partition.img”. Please help me, I cant proceed

      Me too. But i saw in other tutorial that we can use disk32 thingy to select the .raw file. And finally i got the “EFI” folder in which we can copy and replace to complete the process of this tutorial.

      I think OP use the “not showing extension”. Which mean, in the video, the .RAW file is actually BZ2. And the extension-less file is actually the real .RAW file. It’s complicated like that, yeah.

    Install macOS Sierra.raw.bz2 is corrupted. Can’t be extracted through anything.

      1. Han Solow

        Sir, I did watch. I understand the steps. But like I mentioned earlier in the imgur link.
        The “extension less” file is inside “Install macOS Sierra.raw”. But the “Install macOS Sierra.raw” is inside “Install macOS Sierra.raw.bz2” file, which I cannot extract. It always says corrupted.

      2. SpooderPutato

        The:

        Install macOS Sierra

        is located inside:

        Install macOS Sierra.raw

        and that raw file is located inside:

        Install macOS Sierra.raw.bz2

        The video starts from extracting:

        Install macOS Sierra.raw

        what about the:

        Install macOS Sierra.raw.BZ2?

      3. Katalin Csángó

        The file can be corrupted by the download on the internet. I had the Megasync limit (5Gb per day intersected). The next day had resulted a corrupt file.
        Can you describe to me what should happen right after the boot, so I know if I am correct!

    I can’t access my USB drive to replace the Config.plist file. It becomes FAT32 and everytime I try to open, it says “you need to format before using it etc”

      1. SpooderPutato

        First of all, my apology. I did not download the Sierra from here. Instead I downloaded from a local website using torrent because they have seriously fast down speed (2.3mb/s).

        Little did I know was that I downloaded the zip file with a bunch of folders in there which lead to file name InstallESD.dmg. Not img file.

        I tried creating bootable USB using win32diskimager and only one drive shows up as a “FAT32” and unable to open it no matter what.
        Then I tried again with another software “TransMac”. With that I managed to do it (with the same DMG file) and I got 2 drives. 1 is an inaccessible, and another is “EFI” drive. But nothing was in there.

        I managed to get to booting with “UEFI Innostor Innostor (USB-Disk)” (that’s my usb name i guess). And this command line saying I have incorrect boot device thingy, that’s when I realized I have the wrong file.
