    disktutil mount error New to me in Mojave

    I use EFI Mounter v3. It does the job. I haven't seen a post anywhere that says how a person neesd to type it in terminal to get diskutil to open the EFI volumes.

    USB 3.0 Not working with Different CPU in Mojave

    Okay. An new update. The question isn't why the E5-2697 v2 12 core CPU computer isn't working, but why the USB 3 ports work on computer with the i7 4930k does. I tested the OS on another identical computer as the one it's working on, that is Asus Sabertooth X79, i7-4930k @3.4, 32 GB ram, Evga GeForce GT 710 2GB DDR3 gpu, 960 GB Patriot SSD, with this build of 10.14.3 and the USBInjectAll.kext, and the 3.0 ports don't work at all., and as a matter of fact, looking at it, they weren't working with 10.12.x and the GenericUSBXHCI.kext either. I ended up buying a intatek USB card which uses a chip that has native support, and that always works fine. So to recap, one sabertooth X79 motherboard with a i7 4930k where the USB 3 ports work, one where it doesn't in Mojave or with Sierra at all, and one with a E5-2697 v2 where it doesn't with Mojave but does with Sierra, provided the USB device is present when the OS boots. Or to put it another way, Apple went from a stable way of using USB ports to a unreliable one.

    USB 3.0 Not working with Different CPU in Mojave

    Well, the question is, why would this work in one computer, but not the other identical except for the CPU? If it's CPU dependent, are the E5-2697 v2 12 core CPU isn't written for this driver, is it possible to patch it or get a version of USBInjectAll.kext that works with the 12 core cpu?

    USB 3.0 Not working with Different CPU in Mojave

    that made it freeze during boot Just so you know, I don't have a AppleUSBXHCIPCI kext in my system folder, which is what USBInjectAll.kext is supposed to be patching, correct? could it have not loaded correctly?

    USB 3.0 Not working with Different CPU in Mojave

    I tried removing both Lilu.dSYM, shiki and shiki.dSYM. If that's what you meant by "remove .dSYM." USB 3.0 however still not working. As I said, I have a USB 3.0 PCI-E card installed in both computers, and they both work. It's the internal USB 3 that isn't working. I tried once booting the SSD with the motherboard USB 3.0, in verbose mode and while the Ports were loading the boot froze, which I take to mean that the ports became disabled by the OS as it was loading. It's doing something that is actively shutting off those ports.
  7. My Current working configuration is: Asus Sabertooth X79 i7-4930k @3.4 32 GB ram Evga GeForce GT 710 2GB DDR3 gpu 960 GB Patriot SSD Mojave 10.14.3 Installed, all USB ports working, all the time using USBInjectAll.kext v 0.7.1, with no patching needed to increase port numbers since the available number covers all of them. However, when I use this same SSD that Mojave is installed on, in another computer with an exact same motherboard, GPUs, etc, with an E5-2697 v2 12 core CPU instead, USB 3.0 stops working. Only USB 2.0 works. In Sierra and High Sierra, the motherboard and all CPUs required an SSDT and GenericUSBXHCI.kext for both 2.0 and 3.0 USB ports to work, and even then the 3.0 could be temperamental, and wouldn't work if it didn't see a device when the OS booted. My Guess? There is something in the USBInjectAll.kext that includes the i7-4039k CPU but doesn't include the E5-2697 v2? Or there is a difference in version numbers on the motherboards? I have confirmed all bios settings are identical. I even tried switching all the cards in the E5-2697 v2 computer so they'd be in the same order as the i7-4930k, taking out a USB 3.0 card. Nothing solved the problem. The only other difference is the bios version and ME versions of the board. If I remember correctly, I updated the bios to a newer version when I installed the E5-2697 v2. I have tried various configurations with the Config file, expanding the number of USB ports, using the old SSDT from Sierra and High Sierra, different configs and EFI folders from here and from elsewhere. Nothing has solved the problem. As I have learned, this motherboard is a pain in the neck. Its advantage is that it has the "sync all cores" in the bios, which was needed when I jumped from 10.6 to 10.8 (I think it was way back then) I've included the config file and pictures of the drivers64UEFI and Kexts-Other folders. I spent most of today trying to get this to work. USBInjectAll.kext is a better solution, as GenericUSBXHCI.kext always causes shutdown to hang for about 20 seconds, so I'd like to get this working with all the ports. Worst case, I'll have to use only the USB 3.0, but it's not ideal. Any help is appreciated. config.plist
  8. I am using EFI Mounter v3 to open the EFI volumes because the usual method of using the terminal to mount volumes is not working. If I use the command: diskutil mount disk1s1 I get an error message: Volume on disk1s1 failed to mount If the volume is damaged, try the "readOnly" option Another place suggests this: sudo asr adjust --target /dev/disk1s1 --settype "Apple_HFS" diskutil mount readOnly /dev/disk1s1 But I am wondering if I am missing a driver or kext. Attached are my config file, picture of my 64 drivers and kext folder Any thoughts? Thanks config.plist

    Trying to boot without npci=0x2000

    Sorry Asus Sabertooth X79 Uses the Intel® 82579V, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s) However the situation is resolved. I've always need two NIC cards, and the previous kexts for the intel NIC were not compatible with the kext for the internal NIC, so it was easier to just get two PCI-E cards. Ever since leaving 10.9.x, I've had to use 2 TP-Link PCI-E cards and use the kext from realtec's site to get full functionality with a program production program I use. None of the kexts since 10.9.x have worked with the internal lan controllers and the second PCI-E card. As I just discovered, IntelMausiEthernet-V2.4.0 kext works with the internal and PCI-E cards. Removing the RealtekRTL8111.kext that I had in the kexts-other folder, required for the PCI-E NIC, solved the problem. Thanks
  10. New install of 10.14.3 Everything works as far as I can tell. But the ethernet. I installed the IntelMausiEthernet-V2.4.0 and it works with the internet, but doesn't have complete functionality. The instructions for the IntelMausiEthernet-V2.4.0 say not to boot with npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000, as they interfere with the kext, but I can't get the system to boot without it. It gets stuck on PCI Begin. Since 10.9 I've been using a PCI-E ethernet card to solve this problem, but I would like to try to get it to work. Any thoughts on what's making the build freeze? I've looked around and most post say to use the npc=ox2000 argument. But that won't work. My config file is attached. Thanks in advance config.plist

    Wiki Wiki Where?

    In the meantime: I got the graphics to work correctly. It was the clover settings. As far as contributing, the last time I did, I got yelled at. lol On the other hand, I have gotten 10.12.2 to work with a Asus P5K-VM and a GT710 1GB DDR3 Card. While certainly outdated, it is a mATX LGA775 with USB2, Firewire, Builtin ethernet, audio, and SATA. Considering my first install was 10.5.1 on that motherboard with a Q6600, it's pretty funny that it works all the way to 10.12.2 Thanks for the help.

    Wiki Wiki Where?

    Let me clarify: When I say there is nothing in the Wiki section, I mean, absolutely nothing. I am signed in, and it shows the category headings but nothing else. My question there is more of a website functioning question. The picture below is what I'm seeing when I go to the Wikipage. This is the card I have and yes, it's the Evga Geforce GT 710 2 GB DDR3, and I understand it's supposed to work OOB. But it isn't for me. I looked at your list Hervé, and I should say mine is the PCIe 2.0 x8 version, which may make a difference. Usually I would do exactly as you said, and search the wiki page for other successful installs or people that have used the same Graphics card successfully to copy their clover config setting, kexts, etc. https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=02G-P3-2713-KR

    Wiki Wiki Where?

    What's going on with the Wiki Section. Everything is empty, and the installation guides only go up to 10.11? Trying to find options for an inexpensive Graphics Card that works OOB with Mojave 10.14.3 Install is complete. USB 3.0 works, (about as good as it did in Sierra) Still need to get graphics working. Heaven forbid I start poking around TM. I don't want to get infected.
  14. Well, I am not sure what I did. lol. To clarify, I am updating from a working 10.12.6 install. After posting this thread I copied all the kexts to the Other folder, AND changed to product name to MacPro 6,1. It stopped getting stuck but then during booting in verbose mode, it went through normal loading, and then the screen went black and the HD was going for about an hour. I fell asleep and woke to a black screen. I tried again and changed the product name back to MacPro 5,1 (what it was in 10.12.6 before updating) used CLOVERX64-High.efi instead of CLOVERX64.efi, and it worked. Only issue now, is the HD is accessing constantly, which I am guessing it might be spotlight might be indexing. I just shut that off and all is good. BEST Part: The issue in 10.12.x with Screen sharing that caused the Option and other control keys not to work correctly has finally been fixed. Well, Yes, I was using Clover_v2.4k_r4221 for 10.12.6, and that seems to be working with 10.13. I also have Clover_v2.4k_r4259 and just downloaded the Clover_v2.4k_r4268 you linked, but notice you have r4271 in your profile. Is that the current one? As I suspected, I updated to Clover_v2.4k_r4268, switched the kexts to the 10.13 folder, used the CLOVERX64.efi that the latest Clover installed instead of the CLOVERX64-High.efi, and all was well. As with going from 10.12.2 to 10.12.5, the correct version of Clover solved all the problems. Thanks for your help.
  15. I have I 4930k cpu Asus x79 Sabertooth. 32 gigs ram EVGA nVidia 710 Graphics card Originally installed with 10.12.3. and Clover_v2.3k_r3961 UEFI boot Updated to 10.12.6. Boot got stuck at kextd stall [0] (60s) 'AppleACPICPU' Then updated to Clover Clover_v2.4k_r4221, and problem solved, OS worked as it did with 10.12.3 The got final release of High Sierra from iTunes v13.0.66, and updated OS. Update went smoothly Now on boot, getting stuck at kextd stall [0] (60s) 'AppleACPICPU' Below is the screen shot of where it gets stuck. Followed the new install guide in the 10.13, changed smbios to MacPro 6,1 added apfs.efi Still gets stuck. after a while, the screen just goes black Here are the pics
