  1. Hi, the following article has helped to resolve the issue. It is sufficient to patch through Clover bootloader DTGP and FakeLPC. Currently the computer runs with multiplier x6 (2.0GHz) and CPU temperature is 63C,56C,59C,57C Best wishes, osx151212
  2. Hello, I have P5KLP-CM mainboard, the BIOS was modified to support Xeon CPUs, Xeon X3363 CPU has been installed, SMBIOS iMac13,2/iMac10,1, Clover bootloader. The system boots into 'High Sierra' (10.13.6) fine and works ok. I found that CPU multiplier runs at maximum x8.5 (2.83 GHz) all the time and CPUs temperature hit high numbers (81C, 77C, 76C, 73C) for just running OSX and no any applications started. If I boot into BIOS settings and run Hardware monitor then it indicates CPU temperature at around 65C. Is there any remedy to this situation? Thank you, osx151212
  3. Hi janiethemorris, thank you the patch you referred me to does fixed the problem -- now the computer boots just fine. It is a time to update my signature (10.14.5). osx151212
  4. Hi janiethemorris, well I have used my USB to SATA adapter, the update went through just fine and the system can boot through USB adapter. But when I try to boot from same HDD connected to SATA port the boot process ends with line across the circle on black background. I have a few patches already applied and it did work for 10.14.3 just a few hours ago before I went with update on USB adapter. Hmm, I will try to apply the patch you refer to and see what will be the outcome. osx151212
  5. Hello, I've attempted to update Mojave 10.14.3 to 10.14.5 which did not work (does not finish installation). Computer MB: P7H55-M LX CPU: i3 540 RAM: 4GB VIDEO: NVIDIA GTX 760 HDD: WD 500GB NIC: RTL8111 AUDIO: onboard CLOVER: v2.4k r4920 The computer boots perfectly into previously installed 10.14.3 and works very stable. The OSX have informed that new update 10.14.5 is available, the update was downloaded and computer been rebooted. In Clover (most recent version) I selected to install new OSX update (10.14.5) with options "-f -x -v" which provided me with following information on the screen (see attached images). Installation of update freezes at this point with following image of circle crossed by line. Can somebody's sharp eye to spot the source of the problem? Thank you in advance osx151212 Can somebody's sharp eye to spot where the problem is?

    mojave - sound & network

    Hi hacklover, I had similar situation with H55 chipset (desktop P7H55-LX - installation from USB drive). At first somehow I was able to install Mojave on SATA laptop hybrid HDD which has FLASH cache (probably FLASH cache somehow allowed to install). It was a test run and I had real 3.5" HDD WD 500GB disk prepared for Mojave. Installation went fine through on WD 500GB upto stage of partition/format the disk -- disktool sees the disk but can not access it properly (formatting failed with a message about last block). It doesn't matter what I tried, it did not finish. I spent many hours and at some moment decided to stop it. NOTE: If I connected same WD 500GB through SATA to USB adapter then installation went fine through and system worked fine, but USB 2.0 is slow. It made obvious that the problem was not with the disk itself but with SATA access to the disk. Latter I found a patch which by description is dedicated for ICH10 chipsets but it was successfully applied on H55 chipset. To my surprise the problem went away with the patch and now system works fine. [With laptop drive I still had a problem on reboot -- system would not detect SATA disk. I had to power off the system and power on it once more so that disk was detected again. Patch remedied reboot issue as well.] See my post with patch NOTE: probably Clover bootloader finds something in HDD with installed Sierra, but when you try to boot with only Mojave HDD this critical piece is missing. Try to compare content of EFI partitions in both disks -- you should be able to identify/find it. It might be as simple as copying config.plist file. Also remember that Mojave converts filesystem to APFS. You need or apfs.efi file in Clover/Drivers64UEFI directory if you have old Clover bootloader or you need recent version of Clover bootloader which takes care of finding apfs.efi in Mojave directory structure /usr/standalone/i386. NOTE: you can try to boot with 'do not reboot on panic' and 'keep symbols on panic' flags -- output on the screen should give a clue what could be a problem (select desired OS and press 'Space' to get access to the flags). Do not forget to press F1 in Clover bootloader to learn about available options if you are not familiar with them. Clover screenshot Good luck osx151212
  7. Hi, I have several Hackintoshes (some multiboot OSX/Windows/Linux) and my signature will be sprinkled with multiple configurations (mostly old computers). I do not think that it will help much -- when I talk about a computer I try to put specification in first post. Otherwise I have to edit 'signature' multiple times what could even further make very opaque the description of the problem. osx151212

    EFI Not Mounting

    Hi, in your output of 'diskutil list' I see 3 EFI partitions (disk0s1, disk2s1, disk3s1). disk3s1 is external disk, probably USB drive which you can disconnect before mounting EFI partition (if you do not boot from USB drive) You require to know what EFI partition you boot from before mounting it (otherwise your changes will have no effect). When you installed Clover boot loader you was offered to select a OSX disk (with a name) to install boot loader -- if you remember name then you will see in the 'diskutil list' output a partition with same name, it is a clue. Once you know what partition you want to mount then issue following commands (substitute _ on proper disk number). sudo mkdir /Volumes/EFI mount -t msdos /dev/disk_s1 /Volumes/EFI to unmount /Volumes/EFI issue the following command sudo diskutil umount EFI NOTE: to have several EFI partitions on work system is not good idea -- it will create confusion, Clover can find kexts/configuration files on a partition which you do not take into account at boot time. Very un-recommended approach. Better to have one EFI partition on HDD and one on USB drive for 'recovery' purpose (connect USB drive before booting for recovery purpose and boot from it, otherwise connect USB drive only after the system booted up -- in this case you know for sure that HDD EFI partition was used to boot the system). osx151212

    EFI Not Mounting

    Hi, if you are not booted in safe mode (-x) then you should be able to mount EFI partition. I assume that you have only one HDD with EFI partition then try the following command sudo diskutil mount EFI to unmount EFI partition you can issue the following command sudo diskutil umount EFI NOTE: sudo temporary switches into 'administrator' account which is required to mound a partition. If nothing else works you always can use live Linux and manually mount required partition and edit configuration file manually (works every time). A good live Linux distributions is Knoppix -- just get 8GB flash drive and you ready to go. osx151212

    Intel HD Graphics 3000 stuck at here

    Hi, you can try to patch through Clover bootloader if you use it. Go into Options->Graphics->FakeID and try to boot. If it works then use Clover configurator to make the change permanent. NOTE: according following information only starting from HD4000 are supported video cards. It does not mean that it will not work, may be acceleration will not be supported or you have to patch/backport kext. osx151212
  11. Hello, I have a computer with Mojave and ASUS GeForce GTX 760 2GB video card. MS Windows after installation of proper drivers shows 2GB of VRAM. OSX Mojave shows only 1GB. The video card in Mojave works OOB after installation and does not require any additional driver/kext. Question: Is this normal behavior? What is required to be done so that Mojave was able to use all 2GB of VRAM. osx151212

    Not Find EFI Folder

    Hi, if you have only one EFI partition then you can 'mount' it by issuing following command in terminal sudo diskutil mount EFI <-- you will be asked for your password If you have more than one EFI partition then issue following commands diskutil list <-- see what disks and partitions you have sudo -s -H <-- you will be asked for your password mkdir /Volumes/EFI mount -t msdos /dev/disk?s1 /Volumes/EFI <-- ? you get from first command exit <-- exit superuser priveliges Now you should be able to access your EFI partition in Finder osx151212
  14. Hello, I have P7H55-M LX board which has 6 SATA connectors with WD 80GB or WD 500GB HDDs. I attempt to install Mojave, 'Disk Tool' fails to erase disk with an error 'Unable to write to the last block of the device'. BIOS has limited options - HDDs configured to use AHCI. Some reading gave me several leads to similar problem link 1, link 2, link 3 AppleAHCIPort Find --> 40600200 Replace --> 00000000 In clover bootloader 'Kexts to patch' <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>ALPM IO Error AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> QGACAA== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> AAAAAA== </data> </dict> The patch was added in 'Clover configurator' (config.plist) but the problem did not go away. Some suspicion was born about the disk itself, I tried to use another HDD with same outcome. If the disk is connected to USB port through 'USB to SATA' adapter then disk can be erased in 'Disk Tool' and installation proceed as expected. I believe that the problem related to SATA controller not activated properly or SATA driver does not work with SATA controller. 'Disk Tool' sees SATA HDD but can not use/access it properly. Is there any solution to the problem? NOTE #1: If I boot Knoppix 8.1 from USB then I have no problem to partition the disk. I have attempted to wipe up HDD with zeros few hundred MB of the disk with 'dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/diskX' in Linux -- the problem still persist. In 'Disk Tool' selected 'All drives' and operation to erase drive -- ends with above mentioned error. NOTE #2: Next webpage (in Russian) states that H55 chipsets not much different from ICH10. Thank you, osx151212
