By Ragimund (HP Z820)
Noob here asking Help or Hints,
trying to build my first Hackintosh from HP Z820. Almost done...
Read Z820 Sierra & High Sierra Z820 installation guides in this forum - following them I managed to create a Booting Mojave install USB and successful
installation of Mojave 10.14.6 in to SSD. Via Clover Boot view I can choose Mojave SSD and it boots Ok, logging in Ok.
Everything "looks" to work Ok.
-CPU recognised Ok.
-SSD & HDU Ok.
-GPU Radeon RX580, 2 x DP in use.
-Dual displays Ok (Full HD, no internal speakers)
-Wired LAN working (2 Wired LAN RJ-45 connectors, using the one without text label "AMT" (?))
-No Wifi (no dongle)
-Audio working: line out & headphones, airplay (ALC262, injected 28) Ok.
-Bluetooth dongle (Ebay) in USB2.0 port Ok (paired BT Speaker, Keyboard and Mouse).
-Front: 1 x USB2.0, 2 x USB3.0 (all as USB2.0 mode, I think).
-Back: 4 x USB2.0, 2 x USB3.0 (all as USB2.0 mode, I think).
-Back: Firewire OK/NOK ? Don't own any fw device at the moment, how to test, not important now.
Not yet signed to any Apple service, iCloud, etc. Not yet installed any other software except Clover 5098 and Hackintools 2.8.6
System Preferences is showing Update, Mojave 2019-001 (1.55GB). Safari was updated Ok with another smaller update.
I try to install the Mojave Update. It downloads it Ok, warns about needed Restart and after accept it starts to install it.
Apple logo visible, progress bar visible, text "Installing Software Update" visible. Progress bar shows a minor progress - stays almost in the beginning...
and Wham! - Rebooting
Logging in Ok, System Update window pops open and offers the same update again...
Have read plenty of articles from different Forums (sorry, I'm desperate, Noob) and I have a feeling that it relates to my Z820 USB's (maybe??).
HP Z820 uses "Texas Instruments USB3.0 xHCI Host Controller" - NOT Intel like Apple. That's why All my USB are in "usb2.0 mode" (??).
I installed the system with SSD/HDU cables in factory settings (in SAS/SATA connectors. AstekFusion2Adapter & AstekFusion2Family kexts), worked fine.
I changed the SSD/HDU cables to different connectors (ACHI 0 / 1) like in Z820 High Sierra guide later and Booted Ok. Tried Update, FAIL.
Have no idea what's wrong or what's causing this - like I said, I'm a Noob and trying to build my first Hackintosh...
Can anyone Help Noob ?

Anyone else I forgot
Hi All - quick thing - I have a NUC 8i7BEH with 32GB RAM and 2 x 1TB SSD drives. Each drive has its own OS - Windows 10 and Catalina 10.15.
Clover works well - Catalina Boots, so does Windows.
Catalina - has sound over HDMI (to my monitor's speakers)
Windows - no audio device found - It does show Realtek and Intel Display Drivers - but the speaker has a red"x" and in Devices, there is no entry for Microphone Array under Audio Input/Output. It does, however, show Intel display over the HDMI - but actually no sound.
I have tried reinstalling Realtek drivers - now here's the thing...when it installs, it first uninstalls existing Realtek drivers - at this stage (and it's important) the sound starts working - as if uninstalling did the trick. As part of the installing, I have to reboot and upon reboot, it actually reinstalls the Realtek drivers. After that, I'm back to square 1. Unsure if it's the config.plist or boot args in clover. But something with Clover for sure.
I have tested this by removing the Mac Drive with clover and just booting directly to Windows 10 bootloader and everything works as it should, I have sound over HDMI and the audio device shows. Just not when I boot with Clover.
has anyone experienced this and have thoughts or pointers.
Thanks a ton!

We're all here to have fun and learn from each other!
I'm having real trouble getting Mojave installed on a clean drives.
I've followed the vanilla guides here, I've even tried Tony with no luck. Most of the time I was unable to even get to the installer, it would either hand at the `End RandomSeed +++++++++++++++++` or I'd get a kernel panic before reaching the installer.
Anyway I finally played around with the config until I was able to get it into loading the installer. I can now get all the way where the loading bar with the apple symbol gets to the end (takes about 20 mins), then the screen goes blank. I've uploaded my config.plist if anyone had any ideas.
I've disabled iGPU in BIOS.
