  1. Got it working! for anyone searching for this later. here's what I did to get it to work: install the latest clover (2.5K_r5 at the time of writing) copy over Mald0m's EFI folder Download this youtuber's image file: it downloads a rdr file, I wasn't able to extract it. I had to fire up my Windows VM, install the Rtool that's included in the youtuber's google drive. Extract files/folder and copy over the EFI folder (it's the 200mb fat partition) I tried copying over his entire EFI folder on my key... but that didn't work. what worked was copying over (replacing) all his KEXTs in the "other" folder to my key. I was finally able to boot the installer and install OSX.
  2. Alright, so I've learned a lot today. 1) I created a new USB installer with "Clover EFI v2 Bootloader". 2) I figured out what @MaLd0n meant by "block whatevergreen" - this is a kext that he added in the EFI Folder. I didn't block the whatevergreen - after I created my new installed, I just moved your original EFI folder and tried it. I actually start the install now. However, I'm stuck on the Language page. My Mouse works.. but I can't click on next. EDIT: I just realized that if I'm on the language page... I should be able to format my disks.. but I don't see the "osx bar" at the top. I wonder why that is.
  3. Thanks! I think you actually just helped me decifer Mald0n's message, I'll re-create my boot USB without using u.n.i.beast
  4. not sure why it's adding a "tony 86" link removal... I'm jsut typing U.N.I.B.E.A.S.T
  5. I'm not using whatevergreen, I had to google it to know what you were talking about. I'm literally only using what [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] created + the EFI folder you suggested I copy over. My Video card worked OoB with my previous Mojave build on an intel board.
  6. Hey MaLd0n, I appreciate the reply and the help. How to I use UEFI mode? I created my USB stick with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and selected UEFI, I see UEFI is "enabled" in my bios (even though, it's an old school looking bios) What am I missing?
  7. What do you mean by use UEFI mode ever? if I add -x, the computer reboots shortly after.
  8. Thank you sooo much for this help. really appreciate it. This definitively, definitively went a lot further on boot. Last error message I saw on screen was CPU not supported, then it was just a blank screen. I pressed space bar, selected -v & "no reboot" but the screen still goes black Here's my new EFi folder
  9. Hi Guys, I've been at this for a few days now, and I haven't been able to get any further. This is my 4th Hackintosh build, and I've literally never been so stuck. I'm pretty sure it's related to my motherboard... Here's my hardware: HUANANZHI X79-8D Dual XEON E5-2680v2 CPUs 128 GB of DDR3 Ram Radeon R580 (reusing from my previous Hackintosh, I know it's 100% compatible) Here's what I've done so far: Created the clover USB with EUFI Disabled VTd & serial ports in BIOS if I boot with these arguments, here my error: -v Keep Symbols Don't reboot at panic Here's a link to my EFI files
