  1. Thank's a lot for the good tips, specially for the fact, that the 2609 doesn't support hyperthreading. In 2-3 days I will switch to a SSD drive, before that I will give it a try (in the moment the system is working very nice).
  2. ... what I tried to explain is, that you cannot reroute the top two drives (there is a workaround @ HP website for windows insallation and UEFI). It does not work, the Mojave installation does not find any drive (if the HD(s) reside in one of the two top ones). Only the two lower ones work with the gray SATA connectors. however, I finnished the installation how it is described in Bilbos beautiful guide. When I came to ssdtPRGen.sh, I got an error: ./ssdtPRGen.sh -mode custom -b Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 -p 'E5-2609' -c 3 -x 1 -cpus 2 -l 16 ssdtPRGen.sh v0.9 Copyright (c) 2011-2012 by † RevoGirl v6.6 Copyright (c) 2013 by † Jeroen v21.5 Copyright (c) 2013-2019 by Pike R.

Does someone use the z820/OSX with ps/2 mouse/keyboard? My z820 is only working with an extra kext for ps/2.
  3. Ok, thank's again, Bilbo. It seems, that I was a little bit too fast in giving up . Will ckeck the rest of the installation soon. With 'drive container' I did mean the four internal drivebays (number 8 in the picture). The top one is 0, than 1, 2 ..3.
  4. Thank you all for your tips and ideas, I finally managed the problem and successfully installed OSX Mojave. Bilbo, your guide is great, thank you very much. I did have in mind to change the internal SATA drive to one of the SATA ports. With my z820 there is another issue: It does not work, if it is the HD/drive container 0 or 1 in the z820, only 2 and 3 are working. Drive container 0 and 1 have maybe some special configuration due to the RAID support of the SAS controller. I followed the guide to the point of: back up original appleintelpowermagement.kext from extensions folder (go to S/L/E and copy it to desktop) ... of course it is High Sierra specific, Mojave does not have the kext. However, the system is working. Thank you very much!
  5. The hang/crash above was solved by changing the main HD (drivebay 0) to the SATA connection (as mentioned in your Guide, thank's bilbo). The start of the OSX (High Sierra/Mojave) installation process went t'ill the diskutil. But there I endet up with 'no harddrive' except the OSX-boot USB drive and the mounted OSX image. I checked with this hardwaresetup the install of Windows7, here the same, no harddrive. It doesn't matter to set the BIOS to AHCI or IDE, both no change. What is your setup? What HD was connected to one of the SATA ports? Any ideas/tips are welcome, thank you very much.
  6. Thank you very much to bilbo for this guide to install high sierra. Actually it didn't work for me, because I got stuck in the beginning booting from an usb stick (front usb-2 port of the hp z820), I tried High Sierra and Mojave: Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</string><key>IOResourceMatch</key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-media</string></dict> I'm on HP z820, Bios Version J63 v03.94, dual E5-2609 @ 2,40GHz. I did search the web the last 4 days for solutions, but nothing changed here with the tips I found. Any ideas, tips? Had someone the same problem? My Bios Settings are set like described here. config.plist
