That error got nothing to do with the DVMT, I strongly suggest you to switch everything to standard again! (not to the DVMT minsizestolen patch)

There are many common patches in the DSDT some were not applied from repos but written by hand...

I don't remember each one but remember that every table is patched to match the provided DSDT and will not work as expected when using another one, probably not properly patched.

The guide is simple, the files come in a complete package that have to be used and upgraded using every file and every preference as suggested.

Any other kind of installation is not supported and could (or most obviously will) create problems that aren't easy to "debug" :)

 

Hope you understand!

If you really wanna know, disassemble the asl files with iasl. And use a diff tool like BeyondCompare to see the changes.

 

It's really easy.

That was the final hint! :yes:

I set DVMT back to normal and the installer is running now. But now the internal drive is not recognized

Use hfsplus.efi instead of the one coming with clover and try again.

It's a very good hack, the only issue is the lid usb problem explained on the first post...

 

Surely to be tested ....

Hi Claude! Well first of: 

Thank you so much for your efford putting this package together! U saved me a hell of a lot time  :) Was a joy to install osx on this little {censored} :b I were a bit in trouble when it came to the IntelFramebuffer kext, the patch wasnt included in the pack wasnt it? 

However, found it here and now im happy  :)

2 Things: 

 - When I boot Windows from clover touchpad is not working at all....you knwo why this happens? :/

 - 2cnd thing is in OSX double tab and hold to drag wont work..is there maybe an option I am missing? 

 

cheers mate 

 

EDIT: Found that the option is in accessibility option pane not in the trackpad one....haha working now. Love it.

Well after I fidled around with the touchpad and keyboard for some time it was fine. I have no idea what caused this..maybe the firmware was a little bit messy...but now everything is perfect. thanks a ton :)

I fixed that bug, will be posted in the next update...

 

Edit.

Fixed on 1.08

 

The screen brightness buttons (F4 & F5) are behavior now as they should. Unfortunately this isn't the case for the volume keys. The only working combination to lower or raise the volume is FN + F11 & FN + F12. :/

Been so long i haven't been on this board.. I have this device. Just made bootable USB drive, i see clover interface but no apple logo or anything to boot..? Perhaps it's cause i skipped the "add serial number" part, which i have no idea how to proceed.. And actually, when i typed the given code on terminal (using 10.6.6, only system i got here), i got an error message (segmentation something).

 

So i used the "restore" function of disk utility before installing clover & copying files. Another issue i have is after i unplug/replug the drive, the EFI partition doesn't show up anymore, so i can't change files.. Originally i wanted to do a legacy boot drive but it does not seem possible..?

      Hello guys,

      recently I have tried to install macOS mojave on my Mi Notebook pro (i5 - 8250u model) but have faced one big problem.
      My guide was from Razorkey (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-xiaomi-mi-notebook-pro-high-sierra-10-13-6.242724/). As a newbie I have almost no experience in installing macOS on a PC / Laptop... so I hope you can help me .

      But first things first I configurated the BIOS settings on my Mi - Notebook Pro. Therein I just disabled secure boot (because there are quite few options to tick).

      After that I headed over to my secondary Windows - PC and installed a High Sierra virtual machine (thanks to this tutorial: https://techsviewer.com/install-macos-high-sierra-vmware-windows-pc/). At that point everything worked fine.

      Then I downloaded the Mojave patcher and downloaded the full 6GB macOS Installer, put it into applications and formatet my 16GB USB Stick into the journaled + GUID with the name USB meanwhile.
      Next I typed 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB 
      into the terminal and at that point everything looked like it would work pretty fine. I downloaded Clover Config, mountet the EFI partition and pushed the EFI folder from this site: https://github.com/daliansky/XiaoMi-Pro to the EFI partition on my 16GB USB drive.

      In the folloing I restarted my Notebook, selected the MacOS installer and it bootet into the MacOS installer. By doing that I only noticed that the progress bar turned green at a certain time (attatchment). Even though everything bootet pretty fine, i formattet my only ssd (Samsung) into APFS + GUID and startet the installation.
      At the point of two minutes my notebook suddenly rebootet and it brang me into the same clover selection menue as before (with only one method [macOS Installation]). Unfortunately there was no further installation method.

      When I was trying to reboot the laptop into the installer i got a error [your computer restarted because of a problem...] and i would have to do everything again.


      I hope someone can help me fixing this problem  . Thanks in advance.

      I got the perfect working macBook Air 7,2 working with Mojave - Everything is working - I do mean even the SD card reader - audio - backlight controlled with keyboards... I'll write up the full tutorial and video how to soon. Love the Mojave, High Sierra was nothing compared to this.
      Cheers,
      Louis

      Hi,
       
      i just let my sierra installation on a skylake xiaomi air laptop update. after the obligatory reboot i was greeted with a kernel panic regarding com.apple.iokit.IOAHCIBlockStorage. Now booting into osx doesnt work anymore
       
      Anyone else run into this? Is there a way to make clover save the boot log on this or do you guys salvage the logs from the hfs volume osx resides on?
