Yes, it is. The procedure is more or less the same as installing High Sierra.

No, only thing you need to do is make sure you're on the latest Lilu+Plugins (or use -lilubeta)

Hello everyone,
I have a problem with the update of Mojave 10.4.1.

I had a Mojave 10.4 that worked without problems but it was in HFS +. I had trouble installing it in APSF.

Finally by cloning it I can start in APSF (10.4).

After the update 10.4.1, my machine reboot before login (I have two disks). Version 10.4.1 is on an SSD (and now I have a Filevault in preboot, another option in preboot) but no boot.

 

An idea ? I missed something?
Thank you in advance

Bruno

 

Do not ask me how, but I was able to reinstall in APFS and update. I just have to use a patch after every install / update.  Dell Optiplex 780-GeForce 310 (Do not laugh :))

I have an i7-Core CPU. HW Monitor shows that it runs at about 35* C. I don't hear the fan running. Not unless I put my ear next to the back of the case.

 

I am using the stock fans. No issues. I use the computer several hrs a day for work, and a few hrs after work. I have had this computer for 3 years. No issues with CPU over-heating or fan noise.

 

do you have HWMonitor installed by chance? As I see its possible to read the fan speed which shows me that my 120mm fan's frequency is way to high (>1400 in idle). Do you have an idea how to solve my noise problem?

Hi! I need help with my Dell Optiplex 780 w/ C2Q Q9550, 8GB DDR3, MSI GT710 2GB. I'm trying to install High Sierra on my unit but I can't find the right config.plist and DSDT.aml for my unit. When I try to boot via my HDD, the screen turns black. I used McPeet's config.plist and DSDT.aml on his earlier post with Archiv.zip. Thanks everyone!

 

EDIT: I fixed it already, I mixed up the files. But I still have a problem. I have no audio via the rear speaker output.

@Macpeet

Thanks for new Guide  ;)

Here my EFI Folder Optiplex 790 for High Sierra 10.13 to 10.13.4

EFI folder containing all the Drivers64, Drivers64UEFI and a stock DSDT. GFX0 is renamed to IGPU No Graphics patch in the DSDT.

 

The default config.plist is for the Saphire Radeon HD 5570 1 gig (native support)

Sleep and wake works

 

The 5450 config works on all Radeon HD 5450 1 gig or 2 gig

 

The GT 1030 config is for the   Zotac Geforce GT 1030 2 gig (Web Drivers) Sleep and wake works

 

The config 6670 is for the Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 1 gig (Native suppoort)

 

Note: My Optiplex  790 have a ➜ CPU i5 2500k with Injector GPU so all this Graphics card works with the config.plist in the EFI Folder

no kext rollback is need with the i5 2500k

EFI Optiplex 790 (HS-10.13).zip

 

 

Did you get HDMI Audio to work for that GT1030?  I recently replaced my 710 for a Gigabyte GT 1030.  Installed the web driver but I no longer have HDMI Audio.  Using your DSDT and config with audio layout-id set to 16.  I've also tried 15.

@9000RPM For the GT 1030 Try to used this kext in Clover

HDMIAudio.kext.zip

@chris1111 I will try the HDMIAudio kext you posted here.  I tried @macpeet version posted on page 10 but it didn't work. 

 

If it's the same, I'll try your EFI folder posted on page 10.

 

I've tested VoodooHDA and I can get HDMI audio working but I prefer AppleALC over it.

 

Thanks again.

Everytime i start the update it just reboots without actually upgrading, im literally booting into 10.14 again...

Hi, 

I've bought a Optiplex 990, Snow Leopard DVD and Nvidia GT220.
I've created the USB-Drive with High sierra.

 

Now I stuck on Step 3. 
I have no clue, what the meaning of that stuff on Step 3 is. Can anybody explain, what exactly to do there? 
Where do I get clover, how do I install it?

 

Ok, I've figured out, that clover is the Bootloader-Application which can be downloaded here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
Then got to download, and open the pgk (ignore each warning). After that, Click:

 

Continue ⇒ Continue ⇒ Change Install Location... and make sure to choose the right location (not your Main-Device, but "Install mac OS High Sierra" [was it for me]).
Then click "Install" and after that [in same Screen] click Customize. There you found the Settings which are described in Step 3 (here in the thread on first Posting).

 

After you set all things up, press install.


@MacPeet: Maybe, add these above described steps for other newcomer like me to your description. This clearify what to do, if you never has any experiences with mac OS, clover and other Stuff before (like me). BTW: Big Thank you, for your howto.

Since 3 Days I tried many hours to get the installation to work. Read all I got in the forum, and try many things, but don't get HighSierra installed at my device.

My Hardware: 
Optiplex 990 i5-2500k

Bios A24

NVidia GT 220
Samsung EVO 850 SSD

 

The Issue:

I run the High-Sierra installer and first I recreate the partition (tried both APFS and MAC OS Extended (Journaled).

But even if I close the Partition-Tool, start the Installer and open the Install-Log (before I click on the first Install-Stelp), I see some messages like: 
    iMac osinstallersetupd[587]: Target is not convertible to APFS: This Volume is not Mac OS Extended (Journald)

If I format the Disk as APFS, the next Line is: 
    isConvertableToAPFS: was called on a APFS disk.

 

Then some lines later I see:

   Warning: Couldn't find boardID, chipID, & ECID in new namespace, falling back

 

Then I run the Installer ("Next-Step Button) and run the install-process. Here is a Video, what's the output of the log is. https://youtu.be/AG4kwTlemvg
And after short time, the PC reboots.

 

At the next reboot, cloverscreen have 3 entries. My USB-Installer, and two APFS- One is named Install Prebooter from Preboot, the other Install from HighSierra.

If I start the Install from HighSierra, I get a message, macOS could not be installed at your computer

If I open the log, there are errors like Couldn't mount diskimage, and Failed to open installer document

And here is a screenshot of my Folder-Structure of the Installer-Stick.

image.thumb.png.a68b66dfe2529d0ba307072d6c734979.png

Because I thought, the SSD might be the cause of the error, I even try an hdd. But got the same error.


I hope, anybody can help me. It's my first try to get a hackintosh to run, and I thought I had wisely choosed my Harddware. But I'm at the end. Have no clue what else I could try.

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?
       
      CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X

      Hi team,
       
      I'm looking for the best route to achieve this upgrade, so I have been stuck with HS since Nvidia drivers stopped being supported on newer MacOS releases. Now I'm having an AMD 5700 xt on the way and want to plan the upgrade properly. I have added some information below and questions that might help with your recommendation.
       
      Current GPU 1080 ti with Nvidia webdrivers installed. So should I uninstall the webdriver before adding the new GPU? Clover is being used and EFI attached. Any kext must be removed? or parameters adjusted MacOS HS 10.13.6, should I upgrade before using the new GPU? CPU: 9900K Motherboard:ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) Dual Monitors I have a Time machine backup, Do you recommend a fresh install? and If I did, will I be able to restore my data/apps as-is?  
      Please let yourself free to explore further aspects to considers.

      *REUPLOADED updated CLOVER folder, attached as "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip" (uploaded to OSXLatitude forum, can't upload here).
       
      I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide:
       
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive):
      1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 
      2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,
      3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
      1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.
      2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.
      3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image.
      4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.
      5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT!
      6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above.
      7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found)
      It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
