  1. In case you have problems with reboots, try to update your BIOS to latest version. It should fix quite a bit of bugs.
  2. I have a fully working i5 9600k on MSI Z390-A PRO mobo like in signature. Very happy with it :-)
  3. I loaded default configuration, turned off several things (VT-d)
  4. Updated guide to Mojave official. @Hervé you live in Rennes 35000?
  5. It's a natively supported card on pre-Mojave, no patch is required. I had no problem at all using it on Yosemite - High Sierra. However it's a problem of Mojave to drop support for it. The kext was intendedly removed from Mojave.
  6. Without the dosdude1's patch the installation went corrupted and I don't know why. I tried using the createinstallmedia command yet still went wrong. The AR5B29 is essentially an Atheros 9285 (link to buy on ebay). I got the name on Windows Device Manager There is no patch applied for the kext, but it is removed on Mojave, so I got that one from High Sierra to make the AR5B29 work again on Mojave. I'll update the #3 once I have some free time. Thanks for your comments
  7. New guide updated for Mojave Beta
  8. This follows my previous guide for macOS Sierra. 0. What works and does not Works - CPU power management - QE/CI on Integrated Intel HD 4000 - Keyboard/Trackpad - HDMI and LVDS output - Audio: Headphone, speaker, HDMI (?). - Ethernet - Camera - Battery info - Bluetooth - USB Does NOT work - Internal Wifi. Workaround: USB wifi or replace your internal wifi with a supported mPCI-e card. - Sleep: does not work with an USB wifi. Workaround: Replace your internal wifi with a supported card. - VGA out. Workaround: Use an « active » HDMI to VGA adapter. I use this way to connecting my laptop to projectors. - Discrete AMD GPU - Card reader. Workaround: Use an external USB card reader. 1. Specs My Dell Inspiron 15R SE still has the following specs (I haven't upgraded it since Yosemite) : - Intel Core i7 3632QM with Intel HD Graphic 4000 - 8GB + 4GB RAM (12GB total) - 128GB Samsung EVO SSD + 1TB HDD - AMD Radeon 7730M, won't be used by any Hackintosh build - Full HD 15.4" screen 2. Requirements - A Dell 7520, of course - An USB Stick, minimum 16GB. Any 16GB should work. - A pair of USB Mouse / Keyboard during the installation and fixes (you can use your built in keyboard and touchpad later) - An existing Hackintosh (or a real Mac, if you have any ) - Downloaded «Install macOS Mojave Beta» from App Store. - A GPT-partitioned hard drive - A 20GB (minimum) partition as the target. - Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher 3. Create USB Install. For full guide please see here - Boot your existing Hackintosh or real Mac. - First you need to be sure that you have downloaded the app «Install macOS Mojave» from App Store - Use Disk Utilities to partition your USB stick with 1 partition in GPT mode, and choose «OS X Extended (Journaled)» as partition type. Note: don't use any space in label of your disk. - Run Dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher, select the installer app, select usb disk as target. - Be patient. It's quite slow. - Download and install Clover Bootloader v4658 to the usb disk, note to install using EFI boot only - Copy attached config.plist to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/ - Copy attached kexts to /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/ - Download NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and put it in /Volumes/ESP/EFI/CLOVER/Other/ - Reboot after finishing creating your USB for installation. 4. Install - During boot, press F12 to have boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004 to boot the installation. - It should boot directly to the installation UI - Select Utilities and Disk Utility. - Format your target partition as OS X Extended (Journaled). APFS can be used but it's your own risks - Exit Disk utility. - Begin the install procedure - it should be there already. Choose your newly formatted partition. Follow the instruction. Wait for a while (in my case I waited around 10 minutes). - It will restart your computer as soon as it finishes the file copy. - You still need to boot from USB. Hit F12 during boot to show boot list. Choose your USB to start. Set ig-platform-id to 0x01660004, select your installed partition and press Enter. - You will be able to see user creation. Follow the instructions on screen. When you get to your desktop, rebuild kernel cache: sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -u / - Reboot, you should be able to use both LVDS and HDMI outputs (with default ig-platform-id 01660003, already patched using this guide) with proper kext and config.plist attached. Welcome to macOS Mojave! 5. Device fixes Most of the fixes are included in the attached kext zip. 5.1. CPU Power Management Works fine with macOS Mojave (official version) as long as you use ssdtPRGen.sh as instructed here. Don't forget to delete NullCPUPowerManagement.kext afterward. 5.2. Wifi The integrated wifi doesn't work. At all. I used an external wifi dongle TP Link WN725N (v2) for Internet access. After that I replaced the internal wifi with a Atheros AR5B29 and it works natively If you use this AR5B29, copy the attached AirPortAtheros40.kext into /System/Library/Extensions config.plist.zip kexts.zip AirPortAtheros40.kext.zip
  9. I'm still stuck with 10.13, could not get the installer to boot at all. Meanwhile, I was able to have a fully working 10.13.2 on my desktop machine (i7 3770k, Gigabyte z68p, 32GB RAM, GTX 1080, 1TB SSD) with not-too-long attempt. I think I need to rework the whole thing...
  10. Ok I'm back I got a refreshed 10.12 just now. I had to use Capri 04 to boot the 10.12 installer with LVDS, install as normal. After installation, I had to copy FakeSMC FakePCIID and FakePCIID_XHCIMux to boot. VoodooHDA is required for sound, and AppleHDA needs to be removed. I had to copy 10.12.6 Capri over for my binary patch to work. Everything in my previous clover EFI partition still works as expected. I struggled to boot the 10.13 installer for several months already. Always got black screen. I tried both MacPwn and Un1b3ast, none was able to make a bootable USB installer for me. @bwydoogh: how did you make your 10.13 installer bootable? or was it only a direct App Store upgrade?
  11. No idea, I use 16-bit as well. If you're using VoodooHDA, reduce volume for the mic, should help.
  12. No idea, I havent updated to 10.12.6 yet /edit: just updated and found no serious problem, except to remove AppleHDA.kext
  13. I always use safari, so far so good to me.
  14. Congratulate on your success. I manually calibrated myself, as each screen is different. I have my LVDS laptop screen and a Dell U2414h with HDMI connection.
  15. I'd recommend to turn off UEFI and revert to Legacy boot.
