Just saw a similar initial display while using the VoodooTSSync Configurator.. ;)

 

 

Yes, but i have implemented the buttons in a different way and with some shadow effects, and also i am using a more minimal approach for the ui in  tinu

Finally some updates about TINU, after a lot of work under the hood work, because of the bugs i found and also because of the design changements, i am close to the release of the 2.1 version and the open beta testing for tinu 3, so i am currently chegking everything and sending the software to some closed beta testers, and also i have done a collboration video about tinu on the youtube channel of Peter Paul Chato which will go online soon ( i will link it here ).

 

So don't worry, this project is still going on.

You got to help him with that R9 280X, lol watching the video (3 hrs later for me) both of us said "it shoiuld be" at exactly the same time.  

 

Yes, but i remember that he got video acceleration on mojave and i told him that this card is supported for metal, maybe is just a missplacement of the system informations app.

Aside from my R7 265 2gb, lol.    It lists as a R9 270x or HD7xxx.   It’s a cut down R9 270 I got for $130 years ago.   Mojave metal!

OMG!! PPC!!! Love your channel! Welcome to Insanely Mac!! It says you just joined. How long did it take you to complete "the test" so you could join in the forums?*

 

ETA: And now I see you've made a comment over on camera conspiracies. Another favorite. Stay out of my head, PPC!

 

 

 

 

*they might not be doing that anymore.

Thanks. This is a great group. The organization of the content confuses me but I'll get it one day. I"m still going through the hazing process. I still have to attach a Vega64, fans at full throttle over my nipples for 15 minutes. Not looking forward to that.

how to install clover efi, i am taking the efi from my efi/efi
image.png.426fcae5e8d9d14a4e551bc85395c53d.png

 

I am already working to imrpove that for the next TINU relese, but you should just open the exi folder and the efi folder must contan the folders: clover, clover/kexts, clover/kexts/others, clover/drivers64, clover/drivers64uefi, boot, and the files: clover/config.plist and also the 2 clover executables files.

 you should open the EFI folder which contains the boot and the clover folder and not any other folder or subfolder, and you have to make sure that the EFI folder does contain all the stuff that i said or other wise you are always going to get that message.

Seems like I too is having the same issue of not able to copy EFI folder. I am testing this on the latest public release.

 

Attached is the video link.

You have just to choose the EFI folder and not any other folder inside of it.

That was what I was trying to do. I was merely showing that the EFI folder contains the boot folder and clover folder. Then I clicked the main EFI folder to continue.

 

Edit: I even tried choosing the EFI partition which of course as expected fails.

Well, in the new version i am working on i have a more detailed info about that error, so when i will pulish it for pre-relese i sugegst you to try it.

 

And also in the video i see that your EFI folder is missing the drivers64 folder inside the clover folder, this folder is required in this verion of tinu, but it will no longer be required in the new version, so try to create an empty drivers64 folder inside your efi/clover folder and then try again.

Thank you for the clarification. Yes, adding an empty drivers64 folder indeed enable me to proceed to the next step.

 

I will continue to test and see if installation is a success.

On completion of USB writing, an error pops up.

 

1. Sorry, I did not capture a screenshot of it. But, its in the lines of "unable to copy custom folder/setting..."

2. I checked EFI folder on USB and its contents differs from the EFI that I am trying to copy from (I suppose this is expected as per the error above)

 

If you'd like a copy of the log, I will be glad to recreate. Cheers!

yes, give me a copy of the log, that efi folder feature is still very buggy and experimental, that's why i am not advertising it, currelty the best way to have your efi folder installed on the usb drive is to do it yourself after the creation of the installer by tinu

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Pro and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware using Catalina 10.15.4

      I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.

      I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?

      I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.

      Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it)
      Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version?
      If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases
      Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?

      Will it be better to use OpenCore?

      Specs:
      Mortar Max B450M
      Ryzen 2600x
      Nvidia GTX 1060
      16gb DDR4 2400mhz

      I have just re-made the Catalina installer, with the updated OS. It could not install from it, like it could not copy. Then I have tried to reinstall Mojave, it worked pretty cleary last year the exact pen drive. It failed as well, saying something like: not package found, contact the system administrator. I was able to boot from USB pen drive Linux and install Windows from DVD. But no macOS from the pen drive, even from what worked fine before. I have reseted the BIOS several times, no succes. The first sign of something wrong was this: When I first tried to boot Catalina, it said something about BIOS (BIOS, not UEFI) reset and enter setup. I hapenned several times on my attempts. If something screwed in my hardware? The USB ports? The BIOS perhaps?

So It was running perfectly before I put the ssdt-pnlf for enabling Brightness control. it is running really slow and I verified my config with the sanity checker and its all correct. can someone please help. I am attaching my oc folder.
