  1. Hi all, First of all, I have to say that reading this topic (and its predecessor for HS) feels like heaven when you think about renewing your good-old-x58-based hackintosh like me :). Long story short, I am currently looking at the ASRock X299 Taichi XE manual, and I am not 100% sure that this motherboard has its MSR 0xE2 register unlocked: Could someone confirm that? (Sorry if this has already been written somewhere else, but looking at the forum posts, I found several member having this mobo in their signature, but no clear confirmation is it is running great for this matter...)

    Question is: what have you exactly done? I have re-created a complete set of USB sticks to install all Mac OS X / OS X / macOS version (from Lion to Mojave), all using the latest Enoch. Basically: 1. Make sure that your USB stick is partitioned with a GUID scheme, containing 1 single HFS+ partition 2. Install Enoch on the stick at the last stage (i.e. after macOS installed is ready) 3. Use the following commands to install Enoch (as root): # fdisk440 -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdiskX (where X is the drive number corresponding to your USB stick) # dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXs2 # cp boot /Volumes/InstallerStick # cp -R Extra /Volumes/InstallerStick I never used the Enoch installer, since it is so easy to install... ...and I always the 'Extra' folder ready for my configuration.

    They are not "lost": It is just that Enoch does not recognize them. I have to look inside the source code, but I would assume that there is support for at least Linux OSes... Keep in mind that Enoch is completely different from Clover in its behavior: - Clover uses the EFI binaries to boot an OS (That's why Clover got APFS from scratch, w/o any modification) - Enoch is faking EFI structures, and does not "understand" .efi files So, adding .efi files is a "no-op".

    APFS support is coming!

    This version is very close to final Would appreciate if you could give it a try (with either HS or Mojave) and let me know any issue you might face... <troll>Enoch will have APFS support even before NVIDIA release new web drivers...</troll>

    You have lots of ACPI errors on top of your screenshot. I would suspect the fact that your DSDT.aml is not 100% correct, and this confuses macOS kernel. ...and more importantly, I don't see "DSMOS has arrived" message. So, simply said, macOS does not find your boot partition.

    APFS is not (yet) inside the official build: I am still cleaning the code, so I told ErmaC to wait until I give him the green light. However, if you are interested, you can follow the specific topic where the "unstable" Enoch versions with APFS support are posted.

    Newer version should fix your verbose issues... I have drafted a fix that I tested with Mavericks installer. Could you please give it a try and let me know if this is also working properly at your end ?

    Untrue: Credits also goes to Apple that released a very nice PDF describing APFS internals but more over to Simon Gander that created a very nice APFS FUSE driver. I have _only_ took both as basis and implemented what was needed to boot a "classic" un-encrypted APFS volume.

    First release for Mojave support is out (r2921). New official release with APFS support is on its way... (beta already available on the forum topic)

    First set of patches has been sent to ErmaC for integration. Among APFS support, there will also be a fix for a regression that prevented old OS X to boot (black screen issue) Stay tuned

    This sounds completely independent from my modifications... My changes does patch nor affect the behavior of Mojave itself: It is nothing more than a read-only APFS driver for Enoch so that it is able to find and load files on an APFS volume. Nothing that would affect the way macOS reacts after boot is started. Just out of curiosity, which machine are you emulating in your smbios.plist? It might well be that the APFS module is expecting some CPU features based on the SMBIOS data that your i3 does not have...

    Should be coming pretty soon... I am cleaning my code as we speak, but it looks like the file-system layer of Enoch is "leaking by design"

    APFS support is coming!

    Hey! That's unfair: I personally did not let it die... but I saw many forum posts that were basically saying "Enoch's dead since it will never support APFS" I am using Chameleon/Enoch since day 1, and I even made several commits that helped supporting newer macOS versions
  14. My 2 cents here: NVIDIA CEO is holding a keynote on Oct. 10 for the GTC Europe. I would think that it sounds like a good opportunity to announce new drivers for Mojave supporting the Turing cards... (The Pascal drivers were also quite late to come, but they got an official announcement when they -finally- came...)

    After adding the missing patches for the kernel patcher from CrazyBirdy, I can also confirm that Mojave is booting. So, long story short, no Enoch is not dead yet
