Step 5: Now its time to add all the Essential  kext.

Essential Kexts :  FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement These are most essentail kext for EverySystem

NullCPUPowerManagement :   if your PowerManagement is Working then its not required and  Use your SSDT still strongly recommend to use it for First installation or USB Installation only .

 

Step 6: Configure your config.Plist 

Now editing Clover config.plist as per your Hardware, you can do this multiple way by using Clover Configurator  by doing it manually by using Xcode or Plist Editor Pro, . using the correct patches for DSDT and Kext in your config are going to be different for most users depending on your system specs.. always Read your Hardware requirement then apply any . Clover’s wiki for a description for all choices  Clover Wiki

Add Following Vaues Using Clover Configurator or manually to Config.plist file .

   <key>RtVariables</key>           <dict>              <key>CsrActiveConfig</key>               <string>0x03</string>              <key>BooterConfig</key>               <string>0x28</string>         </dict>    Note : you don't need to add above options to RTVariables in config.plist , now it's already added by CloverTeam      Now  USB Installer is ready 🙂 Make the below changes in your bios setting    

Recommended BIOS Settings :

Motherboard with AMI UEFI BIOS, the options are simple. For other systems make sure to set your BIOS to Optimized Defaults, and your hard drive to AHCI mode.

1. To access BIOS/UEFI Setup, press and hold Delete on a USB Keyboard while the system is booting up
2. Load Optimized Defaults
3. If your CPU supports VT-d, disable it
4. If your system has CFG-Lock, disable it
