  1. Version 10.14.x

    17,861 downloads

    Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR HFS+ partition. To use those patched files you must follow HowTo to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store. The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.14 HFS Firmware check by crazybirdy. What is this patched OSInstaller doing? 1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR partition. 2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware". 3. Patch to stop auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.14. 4. This patched MBR OSInstaller will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition. 5. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery). No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch. What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method? As the following.... 1. createinstallmedia method, needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format. 2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12), install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format. We can manually format as MBR or GPT, HFS+ or APFS on installation screen like as 10.12. We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13 and 10.14 on installation screen now. Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, and 10.14 future versions, I think so. It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version. 3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+), install via stage 2 automatically, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format. It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition, and can be installed as update from previous version. How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?

How to update 10.14.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly? How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Automatic-Method)?

And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist. Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store? A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_1014fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

    Mojave MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    I don't know, it happened sometimes here. Normally, I would like to download manually for big size files as BaseSystem.dmg and InstallESDDmg.pkg.

    Mojave MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    You should have curl download error issue with macOSUpd10.14.1.pkg, need to update again, if it still get errors with curl, need to download the files manually as script shows to you.
  12. crazybirdy

    Mojave MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    Both work fine, you can use MBR-Manual-Method first for fresh installation.
  13. You can use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_1014fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

    Mojave MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    I know that, it's the same, but can't use for MBR. The above issue is curl download issue, not script issue.

    macOS Mojave on Legacy PC ? Yes we can

    Good news from gengik84 /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleMediaServices.framework Replace it with 10.14.1, all Apple apps work fine with MBR HFS+ on 10.14.2 18C31g here. I wish the final release will fix the beta bug issue, if it's a bug, not a OOXX.

    The MBR-Automatic-Method can install over 10.14.0, but MBR-Manual-Method can't.

All apple app work fine. mount -uw / kextcache -i / reboot added.... all right, I update to 10.14.2 18C31g, get the same problem as yours, I don't know how to solve it.

    Mojave MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    If you have free time, you can try MBR-Automatic-Method script of MBRupdate1014, this should work fine without any problem as you said. I prefer to use MBR-Automatic-Method and MBRupdate1014 for MBR HFS+.

    Mojave..G210, (Tesla)

    Refer to my config.plist.zip. FYI. And re-install all the kexts, if you need NVDAStartup.kext.310.42.25f01.zip from nawcom too.

    Mojave..G210, (Tesla)

    Remove all /S/L/E/Geforce*** and /S/L/E/NVDA***. If you still get kernel panic, I think, it's not graphic kext issue, it's something wrong else.

    Mojave MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    I think it's not installscript issue, it should be 10.14.1 issue itself, maybe graphic card issue.
