@Avanheusden, I suggest you start reading at the top of page 3 (direct link) and click the "reveal hidden content" bar. Should give you some ideas how to make any recent AMD Radeon RX series GPU / eGPU work.

 

And in case you need some help where to order the hardware PSU modding gear in NL? Shoot me a PM. Could save you a couple of weeks waiting for Amazon / Aliexpress / Banggood. ;-)

okay ... let me rephrase my actual question: does the efi zip in your opening post always reflect the latest & greatest? 

I will validate. 

I just uploaded the one I am using right now... check it out and let me know

you will need to create Mojave USB installer. Your Nvidia 1050ti will not work in Mojave though, you will need to use the built in video as I am doing.

well,

interesting that here is no NVIDIA support under Mojave. i think ill stay put on High Sierra. my machine is tripple boot and the 1050ti works very well under windows for gaming.

 

thanks man !!

Good plan, once Nvidia has drives for Mojave, it may be a good upgrade

From a hardware perspective the nvidia 1050(ti) is also the highest GPU upgrade officially recommended by HP in the tower / TWR model according the specsheets. The highest AMD RX that will work without using an additional / replacement PSU. To power the possible 6-pin connector at the RX560, is to get a mSATA to 6-pin converter cable (can be held pretty much at every local computer retailer costs a few bucks). But, according to a benchmark site like https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1050-Ti-vs-AMD-RX-560/3649vs3926 and/or https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare/GeForce-GTX-1050-Ti-vs-Radeon-RX-560/3595vs3708 that 'upgrade' from nvidia to AMD -- to be compatible with Mojave (at this time as put forward by @Donw35) -- does mean a considerable performance loss of roughly 25%. In short: 1050ti is indeed the better videocard in a triple boot environment where Windows gaming is important. A proper a wortwhile price/performance upgrade in most TWR scenario's -- for any OS where GPU performance matters -- would be to get a RX 570 with 8GB RAM. Usually cheaper than a RX 580 with 4GB. And the additional 4GB VRAM is more important for textures in Windows gaming than the 15% performance gain of RX580 (so I've been told), but does involve some hardware modding as explained in my prior post on page 3.

My computer works good except one thing. Sometimes it freeze on wake up. I have now disable sleep completely. Is there any fix for this? 

 

I think a SSDT for the USB ports is a fix for this problem, but I don't know how to do it...

yes first thing i did was i formatted the hd using disc utility from el capitan  to OSX extended and details says the hd has GUID partition map... then installed MOJAVE to HD.. installed CLOVER... USE CCG to mount EFI... copy over updated CLOVER folder from first post and replaced on HD... boot into hd on HP ELITEDESK 800 G1.. CLOVER boots up and only 4 options available.. "EFI on WINDOWS ..LEGACY WINDOWS BOOT" ETC (sorry dont have it booted up so dont know exact wording on clover)... all 4 options boot up my windows hard drive.. no sign of any OSX hard drive or boot options for MOJAVE HD

      Hi folks,
       
      it's been a while since I had to set up a new mackintosh for me but since my Mavericks system got screwed due an sudden power failure I needed new hardware and got a used i5-system from my uni. It's a HP Compaq 8100 Elite CMT with an i5@750 2,67 Ghz, 8 GB Ram, a Nvidia NVS300 graphic card. It has a HP motherboard from 2010 with the name tag "Infineon-C 505799-001". 
       
      I installed El Capitan 10.11.3 with the help of a USB-stick and Enoch according to the install guide from user 'VoiletDragon' over at the tonymac page but was never able to boot the Mackintosh afterwards with Clover and decided to boot in in a kind of legacy way by installing Enoch 2848 to my Mac partition and putting the kext's for AppleIntelE100e, FakeSMC, and NullCPUPowerManagement in /Extra.
       
      I also installed VoodooHDA 2.8.8 from it's own installer.
       
      So everything was working fine and absolutely splendid in 10.11.3
       
      However, I wanted to update to 10.11.6 and backed up my /Extras as well as all extensions from /S/L/Extensions. I installed the 10.11.6 combo update and replaced the Kernel with the patched kernel for 10.11.6 that has been provided by user 'VoiletDragon' in his install guide.
       
      I then fixed the permissions and did the reboot of the system. And the only thing that fails is the USB support which just doesn't exist anymore. Nothing, no Apple keyboard, no USB mouse...nothing. 
      I only have full USB support if I boot by ignoring the caches ( -f ) in Enoch.
       
      Any ideas what I have to look for? Is there a patch somewhere or do I have to replace some extensions?
       
      If this might help to get closer to the problem I'm posting my .plist's here as well. Any ideas are more than welcome!!   
       
      Here's my smbios.plist (just crossed out parts of my serial): 
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMbiosdate</key> <string>03/09/13</string> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>IM141.88Z.0118.B00.1309031248</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-031B6874CF7F642A</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>iMac</string> <key>SMmanufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMmemmanufacturer_1</key> <string>Elpida</string> <key>SMmemmanufacturer_2</key> <string>Kingston</string> <key>SMmemmanufacturer_3</key> <string>Elpida</string> <key>SMmemmanufacturer_4</key> <string>Samsung</string> <key>SMmempart_1</key> <string>EBJ21UE8BDF0-DJ-F0</string> <key>SMmempart_2</key> <string>HP497157-C01-ELDW</string> <key>SMmempart_3</key> <string>EBJ21UE8BDF0-DJ-F0</string> <key>SMmempart_4</key> <string>M378B5773CH0-CH9</string> <key>SMmemserial_1</key> <string>A A F 1 3 C A 4</string> <key>SMmemserial_2</key> <string>A 7 3 F F 4 4 1</string> <key>SMmemserial_3</key> <string>8 5 7 E 2 2 D E</string> <key>SMmemserial_4</key> <string>6 6 2 0 6 B A 5</string> <key>SMmemspeed</key> <string>1333</string> <key>SMmemtype</key> <string>24</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>iMac14,1</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>C02XXXXXF8J2</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> </plist> And here is my org.chameleon.boot.plist:

      Hi there,
       
      This is my 10th hackintosh. And I have been setting them up since 10.5 or so.
       
      This one is putting up a fight.
       
      It doesn't boot at all. I get the Darwin boot prompt, the VESA info and in reboots a second after the apple logo shoes up. I never found and hackintosh that did not boot, period.
       
      The thing is, I get no kernel panic. Just a cold boot. And the output is so fast, that I cannot see what's going on.
       
      These are the specs... (I'm on an iPad, so I'll just post the link)

      Can someone help?
