I just installed. Everything works fine. I'll test final cut pro, premiere pro with 4k footage and get back with you on performance.
For now moves like a performant Mac book pro.
I installed Catalina first but I could not make the Intel UHD 620 Graphics get proper QE/CI.
Mojave is just fine. I want to use this system for quick video editing on the go.
Geekbench in my signature.
If you need any files or have any questions pls ask.
I was trying to install Mojave on newly built pc, I am stuck at this apfs-module-start 1393 error right now. I tried downgrading the bios version of my motherboard. Tried different KEXTS, EFI folders but didn't work. I have installed windows 10 on it right now.
Can some one help me on this.

Hello, I am new here, so I apologize if I've chosen the wrong subforum for this question.
I am scratching my head a bit on an issue with a clients MacBook pro. He was having USB connection issues and claimed the laptop wasn't detecting any USB connected to it.
Figuring it was a failed USB port, I took it in but ended up just feeling more confused after doing some diagnostics.
It came in loaded with Catalina, a recent upgrade spurned the beginning of the issues the client told me.
I decided to revert it back to the default OS in the base recovery image, which is Yosemite.
Upon finishing the install, I found that the USB port was in fact working again. Figuring I had resolved the issue, I updated it back to Catalina just to be met with the same issue upon reinstalling.
Tried nvram, pram, and smc reset each to no avail.
One thing to note is that during boot, the USB is getting power as it lights up when connected during boot up.
But the ports are dead as soon as it boots into the operating system.
I have a strong feeling that this is a driver issue. I tried unloading and reloading the USB IO kext, with no noticable change.
Is anyone here familiar with this issue? Would there be any other kext related troubleshooting i can perform ? Is it possible to revert to the kext used in Yosemite on catalina ?
One last thing to note, on Yosemite the USB was functioning 100%. But I did get a strange notification that the USB ports were using power even when there wasn't any connected to it. Either way, I find it very very odd that it works perfectly in Yosemite.
