PART 6 – INSTALL MAC OS MOJAVE ON INTERNAL DRIVE INSTALL NOTE ENSURE BIOS: Above 4G Decoding is set to Disabled if Above 4G decoding is set to enabled then macOS Mojave install will freeze at 2 mins remaining and will not shut down properly!!!!

PART 7 – MAKE AORUS Z390 PRO INTERNAL DRIVE BOOTABLE Make internal drive bootable ( Video below ) So far, the Aorus Pro can only boot the internal system drive with the aid of the Mojave USB Installer. To boot from the internal system drive without the installer: Download and install Clover with RC Scripts on target volume. If your Aorus Pro Z390 has AMD RX 580 then copy the EFI folder from inside POST-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition. OR If your Aorus Pro Z390 has no graphics card installed in PCIe slot, then copy the EFI folder from inside POST-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - Intel UHD630.zip folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition. • Remove USB Mojave installer and shut down and restart.
