To rule out potential problems from the go, only have the disc that you plan to install macOS Mojave connected to the Aorus Pro, disconnect any other Windows / Linux or data drives, external drives from your Aorus Pro. Windows / Linux and data drives can be connected after successful installation of macOS Mojave If you have more than 16 GB of memory, then install macOS Mojave with just 16GB or RAM installed, you can later add any additional memory. Install memory modules in slots DDR4_A1 and DDR4_B1. This build has a recommended Wi-Fi combo PCI-e card installed in slot PCIEX1_3 with its 9 pin USB cable attached to motherboard header F_USB2. ( ensure WiFi card is seated properly in PCIe slot and cable is firmly attached to WiFi card and motherboard header F_USB2 ) If using the Corsair H100i v2 AIO cooler with USB cable connected to motherboard header F_USB1, you will need to enable hot-patch ( explained in guide ) in config.plist for working sleep, wake from sleep will only work by pressing Power Button. Install macOS Mojave on its own physical drive, so do not try and install macOS Mojave onto a free partition on a disc that contains Windows. Remove any Thunderbolt cards, Thunderbolt card can be reinserted after installation. Double check your BIOS settings are the same as this guide. Following are unsupported / problematic • Intel Optane ( if you have this, remove it before installation of macOS Mojave ) • Samsung EVO Plus drives ( ensure you update Plus drive to latest firmware to avoid problems ) • XFX Radeon RX 580 • NVIDIA GTX / RTX not supported in macOS Mojave Q - WILL THIS GUIDE WORK WITH MY NON AORUS Z390 PRO MOTHERBOARD ? A - Possibly, though you may have to create your own USBPorts fix. Q - I notice you have the Aorus Pro Z390 version, will this guide work with Aorus Pro Z390 WiFi version ? A - Possibly, but onboard Intel / Intel CNVi WIFII /Bluetooth will not work with macOS and you will have to disable HS14 for Bluetooth to function properly. Q - Can I use my AMD Vega Card ? A - Yes, AMD Vega card's will work with this guide, but If you plan to use a Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 then please read @AudioGod ==>post regarding the Sapphire Pulse 56.
