@vapayo - curious - what does your installer look like from the command line? mine has these files (when i make it with LionDisMaker 2.0.2):

 

and if you boot your installer - do you have an option to go to Utilities? if so, what does your HD look like after the install (now)?

@vapayo

 

well. if OSX is installed on your HD, then Clover should NOT be giving you this option: Boot OS X Install from Machintosh HD. some how you have an installer option and not the "regular OS" ... for it should be give you option: Boot Mac OS X from Machintosh HD 

 

 

I ran into this situation once. If you see clover offering to boot OSX Install from the internal HD then likely your installation did not complete successfully. When you first run the installer, it copies/extracts the installation files to the target volume. Then it (supposed to) reboots from the HD to finish the installation. Then after it reboots after this, it should offer Boot OSX from HD and not Install. I noticed this when I finished the first part of the install and then failed to reboot. I lost my root device in there somewhere, but once I fixed it, the install continued after reboot and then all was well.

@tluck

A screen of my install media is attached.

 

In the disk manager it shows only a few files. :/

My install really seems to be broken.

 

@Sheep_Reaper

How exactly did you fixed yours?

@Tetonne - why can't you install 10.9?

 

@Vapayo - 10.8.5 - turn off Bluetooth in BIOS for the install - this may be why it wont complete properly.

But there is another way to make an installer.  you need 

 

follow this - works for 10.8 too http://osxdaily.com/2013/06/12/make-boot-os-x-mavericks-usb-install-drive/

 

you could just  copy BaseSystem.dmg and Packages from your current USB to /Temp

(they are hidden but you can change them by

chflags nohidden * 

or use command line cp

 

then open BaseSystem.dmg

then you use Disk Utility to restore BaseSystem.dmg to the USB (overwrite it)

then once its done, to remove the link file in /System/Installation/

then copy /Temp/Package to /System/Installation

 

may need a bit more like mach_kernel (can probably install from BaseSystemBinaries.pkg)- there are some tools to do this. - this makes the USB more like a regular install.

hi guys, I also just installed 10.9, following tluck's guide... checking if everything is fine... thanks a lot!!

 

update: all seems to work fine, except:

- sleep (it does not go to sleep at all).  I have the vanilla AppleACPIPlatform.kext from 10.9. Is that correct?

- it seems I cannot connect to iMessage of Facetime. Can you guys make it from 10.9?

 

Update Oct 12:

I have noticed that if I remove the ultrabay HD (I have a second HD on the DVD bay), it sleeps/wakes fine.

So, it is this second HD that is causing the sleep issues.

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

aj

If your first video is actually your system, I also noticed something else. Our thinkpads have two different POST screens depending on which startup mode is enabled. If your system is set up to start up in the default UEFI mode, you'll see a centered ThinkPad logo with nothing else on the screen. If you have CSM enabled, you'll boot into legacy/compatibility(BIOS) mode, and see the left justified ThinkPad logo instead like the one shown in your first video.

@Tetonne - thanks for for reminding me of the Display Overrides. i added a link to the zip for the display overrides i use for product 2e2 and 6af (models of LCD) - the install of 10.9 wiped them out.

The display overrides will add support for 2 models.  EDID-fix-prod-2e2.zip (ignore the config.plist as this was for an older version of Clover)

Post #486 - i will update the zip with minor addition to the DSDT to get rid of the startup AppleHDA Assertion.

@sheep_reaper.
glad to know another T430 user in hackintosh and had working system. :)

my installation just broke a weeks ago. fortunately got spare time after resigning from my job prior joining with other company. :))
i've installed Mountain Lion 10.8.4 with myHack method. i'm gonna stick with chameleon for a while.

today i solved the sound issue by patching the ApplehDA.kext and using modified IOAudioFamily.kext. The resource i'm follow are all in OSX latitude forum.

(looks like an error with their webserver when i post this).

I've tested the output, internal speaker and headphone. both works okay. audio issue with internal speaker after wake from sleep is fixed by using the attached IOAudioFamily.kext.
haven't got a chance to test the input (mic)

 

attached are those 2 files i mentioned before.

after installing the AppleHDA.kext, you need to modify the DSDT on HDEF part.

you can check for more resources in this thread

 

hope it useful.

So success. Updating to 10.8.4 solved my hit-or-miss booting situation. My Lenovo T430 (2349GCU) Hackintosh is a success.

 

Thanks to bcc9 for providing some much needed assistance in understanding my startup issue. Thanks to Gendalo for his original DSDT and EFI folder. Thanks to the developers of Clover EFI, whom I don't know first-hand, but without whose bootloader I would not have been successful. And of course thanks to all of you in this thread whose discussion on T420's was what originally motivated me to try this on my T430.

 

Also, if it makes you guys feel any better, This thread is the only thread of value on the entire internet that provided the information i needed to get this project off the ground. I'n not joking, I spent days Googling my fingers raw for tangible information on T430's or 420's for that matter before I came accross this little gem.

@sheep_reaper
do you have a fix for usb problem after wake from sleep?

i use GenericUSBXHCI_1.2.6. it works fine prior sleep.

when the computer put in sleep, then wake, it no longer recognizes any device plugged-in to usb port.

i need to reboot to be able to recognize usb hardware.

 

@tluck and others,

is the same thing happening with your T420?

@okcakep - the display definitions are for LCDs that 1600x900 - do you have a this native res? it not, then that would explain why its blank - the monitor can't handle this definition. 


@gendalo76 - i don't have a usb problem after sleep for all the built-in usb 2.0 ports .now even my esata (external) drive survives sleep/wake since using the native 10.8.5 AppleACPIPlatform.kexts.

 

however for usb3, i have a 2-port GMYLE USB3 express card that does not handle sleep/wake very gracefully. i have to unmount all the filesystems before then it resets the card upon wake. it works after sleep. i am using CalDigit kexts for the card. however, at one point, i tried the GenericUSBXHCI kext but it could not seem my Seagate Disk. it could see the AS2105 disk tho - but i went back to CalDigit. i can't remember how the generic one handled sleep. i did add some stuff for sleep in my dsdt nonetheless for XHCI.

@gendalo

 

Hey Gendalo nice to see you again. No I did not attempt to fix the USB Sleep issue. A bit bogged down with mid-terms at the moment. Kogen had asked me to gather up my materials for my successful build so that he can update the 1st post, but If you have them readily available, by all means PM him. My success was built off of yours anyways, but I sure would like to get on the same page with you and Kogen. Kogen has a 430 now also, but he's busy too. We also have some catching up to do with the 420 guys.

 

The only good piece of info I have at the moment is that I'm certain that your DSDT and mine are the same. This means that any 430 user with model 2349XXX should have the same DSDT. The XXX in your model differs from mine, but the DSDT dumps were identical.

The history of the question is [bUG] Shutdown issue with UEFI boot.
The behavior: when we press "Sleep" or "Shutdown" display went OFF but lights and fans continue working. Then reset only. It happen not every time, it may happens 1:10.
With CloverEFI legacy boot it may happens 1:100.
The problem is resolved with follow new keys:
HaltEnabler - set SLP_SMI_EN=0 at early start.
FixShutdown_0004 - prevent set SLP_SMI_EN=1 at _PTS with Arg0=5 (shutdown)
SuspendOverride - extend this fix to Arg0=3,4,5 (also sleep and suspend)
SlpSmiAtWake - set SLP_SMI_EN=0 at method _WAK, so at every wake up.
Not all users need all these keys but set all to true is safe. You may loose some behavior but you can boot anyway.
Now we (me, TimeWalker, endless) have full success with the issue. Sleep/Shutdown/Wake works fine with UEFI boot.

I would be a bit careful here... i tested out some of these new auto-DSDT fixes.  well, on the T420, it did some weird things - especially SlpSmiAtWake - it would not wake after 2nd sleep/wake.

 

HaltEnabler does not seem to make any DSDT changes. but i presume just sets this var to 0 - which is ok.

Fix_Shutdown_0004 - makes _PTS for Arg0=0x05  a totally No-Op --- so i don't think we want that for since we are NOW setting SLP_SMI_EN=0 in our dsdt.

SuspendOverride does the same for Arg0=3,4,5 - probably not so good either?

I would advise staying away from trying HaltEnabler.. it indeed doesn't do anything to DSDT as it writes to chipset related registers on boot. This has caused two bricks on HP laptops these past days, so I would recommend staying away from this on laptops as far as you possibly can. Also, don't ever EVER  try any of the changes introduced with 2175 - prone to cause immediate brick on Phoenix firmware with no way to recover because it writes the config into nvram and replaces all of it's contents by the config file...

ouch.  

 

sleep and/or shutdown works about 90% for me with - i think my USB3 express card gets in the way on occasion. if I turn that off, then i get much better results.

 

One challenge, i still can't figure out is why my LCD is brighter after sleep/wake? if the screen sleeps,  then upon wakeup it is just a little brighter. the brightness/backlight settings do not change. its just brighter! I did a little research and it showed others with HD3000 have seen this but i could not find a good fix. anyone have any ideas?

I have the HD4000 on my 430. On both 10.8 and 10.8.4 I did not experience the brightness issue you describe. However, I did have the sleep issue in 10.8 but then disappeared when I upgraded to 10.8.4. Haven't tried 10.8.5 or 10.9 yet. I have USB3 built in and have had no problems with it other than the USB post-sleep resume issue, but it affects both my USB3 and USB2 ports.

I use sleepwatcher to set brightness after sleep. It starts a script that runs the binary.

or maybe this helps to store a value with dsdt fix

I'm using a W520 and I found I had to use the following tags for shutdown to work.

 

        <key>ResetAddress</key>
        <string>0x64</string>
        <key>ResetValue</key>
        <string>0xFE</string>

@timewalker75a - wow that was easy. fantastic. just curious how do you/we know 1312 is the right max?!

 

@zhangqq - interesting. does this make  shutdown work (period) - meaning it did not work at all - or that is makes shutdown work better (ie not hang)?

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub Updated to Clover r4849 Updated Kexts Shift to use WhatEvergreen.kext SSDT updates for T460 Added Frank's T470p DSDT files Added T470 DSDT
        Various Tweaks over Last months The zip file is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle is tested on Sierra. 
      Note: I never got the GFX fully working on El Capitan. 
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.

      Cercate una voce  del tipo “Sata Mode”e settatela  in AHCI
      Secure Boot: disabilitare o altri sistemi operativi
      CSM: UEFI o LEGACY, oppure a secondo del tipo di installazione
      VT-x / VT-d disable
      *Nota: Secure boot e csm valido solo per bios UEFI
      Materiale Occorrente 
      "OS X (Versione App.Store)”
      USB 8GB  *nota: nel caso di usb superiori dovrà essere partizionata, in modo da avere una partizione su cui "lavoreremo,di questa dimensione

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.

      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"
      Per Installazione UEFI
      Mettete i flag   : Installazione solo per avvio UEFI
                               : installare Clover nella ESP
                               : Driver64UEFI  AptioMemory --> (consigliato) 
                               : Driver64UEFI  ApfsDriverLoader --> (consigliato) --> sostituisce l'uso del driver apfs.efi
                               : Selezionate l'altri driver come da successiva immagine,
       
      *Nota: Altri driver che si possono usare  al suo posto  sono:
       informazioni 
       
      Proseguite con l’installazione.
      Immagine 
      ** Ricordate che avrete accesso a questa cartella dopo aver montato la partizione EFI**
      ===========================
      Per installazione Legacy
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Impostazione per config.plist:
      Con clover configurator “montate” la partizione EFI della usb.
      1) Per fare questo nel menù di sinistra, cliccate su “Mount EFI”
      2) individuate la partizione relativa alla vostra usb, a questo punto montiamo la relativa partizione EFI  selezionando l’apposito pulsante “Mount Partition”
      Immagine 
      3) Successivamente cliccate su “Open Partition”.. recatevi in EFI/Clover ed aprite il config.plist
      4) Sezione ACPI: Disabilitate tutti i fix sia del menù 1 che del menù 2
      Immagine 
      5) Sezione BOOT: Sole se si sta installando Yosemite mettete il flag su kext-dev-mode=1
      Immagine 
      6) Sezione RT Variables: Se si sta installando El Capitan oppure Sierra, aggiungere i valori: BooterConfig= 0x28, CsrActiveConfig= 0x67
      Immagine 
      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched
      Immagine 
      
      Per High Sierra:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
       
      Per chi volesse continuare ad usare HFS vi rimando a questo post:
        Come installare High Sierra in HFS direttamente dalla usb  
      Utenti Laptop:  Nel 99% è obbligatorio disattivare la grafica discreta Nvidia/Amd per installare questo nuovo osx
                                     Quindi aggiungete --> SSDT-Disable_DGPU.aml.zip
                                     in EFI/Clover/acpi/Patched della usb
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Per Mojave:
      Scaricare il driver apfs.efi per 10.14 a fine guida, collocarlo:
          --> EFI/clover/Driver64UEFI se stiamo usando UEFI
      --> EFI/Clover/Driver64 se stiamo usando Legacy
      Versione di clover non antecedente a V_4015
      Volete usare HFS?
      E' possibile fare un installazione diretta su altro disco o partizione, nel caso può essere usato anche per effettuare aggiornamenti...
      nel caso guardate...
       Mojave in HFS 
       Oppure direttamente da usb  
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
      le info le trovate a questo post
      Ringrazio @Ciro82 che mi ha aiutato nel preparare questa guida.

      Ho comprato da poco un Acer Aspire 5750G e girando su internet ho trovato la cartella efi che garantiva quasi tutto funzionante perfino il wifi (https://github.com/zipippino/HighSierraAspire5750G).
      Allora felicissimo installo macOS e a parte incappare in errori stupidi, riesco a fare tutto, ma quando sono riuscito ad installare clover Legacy e sostituendo la roba con la 'mia' efi clover si avvia ma macOS no, semplicemente non carica (si nota anche pk la spia dell'hdd che dice se è in attivitá è spenta.
      Qualcuno può aiutarmi?

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
       
      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not get iMessage to work properly. It worked precisely once, on my first installation attempt. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - if you can get NVRAM/PRAM working properly on this hardware, please do edit the config as you see fit.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.
