Hi KGP , I'm the oner of a X99 hackintosch with a Gigabyte X99 UD4 mainboard and a I7. 5930K proc

I  followed your guide line by line and I didn't went so far with my newbie knowledge

I was able to do the CPU microcode update the bios  F24b ( thanks to your very good explanation).

I followed the MSR 0xE2 register unlock for OSX Kernel Write but it didn't patch anything ( I read somewhere else that maybe my mainboard doesn't need that , can you confirm ?)

Then I rename the bios exactly like it was before but I ended with an unreadable bios when I'm trying to flash it . Do you know what is wrong ?

So you see I still have a long path to follow to get a proper hackintosch running under Mojave

MSR register on GA motherboards is open for kernel write. No need to patch the BIOS firmware. Just do the microcode update, if necessary. Maybe somebody else can explain you how to properly flash the modified GA firmware. I do only use ASUS motherboard hardware. 

 

Good luck,

Thank you KGP for probably the most comprehensive and consolidated X99 guide.

I am just getting prepared.

Should C.4.e. be TSCAdjustRest instead of VoodooTSCSync ?

Thanks again to KGP for a superb guide. I successfully and painlessly, and quite quickly installed Mojave following KGP's steps.

However because of the present NVIDIA limitations on Mojave I'm now going to try KGP's High Sierra install instead.

To avoid future problems with Nvidia, which you will encounter for sure again along the upcoming 10.15 betas, I would directly change to Vega 56 or 64 instead :wink_anim:

macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta1 (18E174f)

 

Important Note: to properly load respective kexts under 10.14.4 beta1 during boot, Clover_v2.4k_r4862 is deemed necessary. @Slice recently committed respective modifications of kext_inject.c introduced by @PMheart .  

 

10.14.4 Beta1 XCPM_performance patch by @PMHeart:

Working USB port limit patches for 10.14.3 and 10.14.4 Beta1

 

Thanks to @ydeng, there are now working USB port limit patches for 10.14.3

And here are the respective USB port limit patches for 10.14.4 Beta1 provided by @PMHeart

Find     : 83E30FD3 E34109DF
Replace  : 83E33FD3 E34109DF
Name     : USB Port Limit Patch 3 ©PMHeart

 

The port limit patches should be used in line with the fully implemented XHC USB kexts.

 

However, it is still recommended to disable the port limit patches and use truncated 15-port kexts instead. This might avoid buffer overruns and will make your system more vanilla with respect to future macOS updates.

 

Enjoy and have fun,

Hi, thanks for your good Guide in Case of 10.14.3, with any of the Infos now have run the correct XCPM without any Errors after a longer Time in Idle State, before it was that my system stand to more than 50% still no Alan , no Clock (not count away) at 12:00 AM the time call 07:42 and any Parts of my system was run and I was able to restart the system. my System is a Asus Rampage V Extreme i7 5820K 4x4GB ( Quad) , a Samsung 960 Pro 512 as the SystemDisc, a Nvidia GTX 670 2GB and a GTX 970 4GB but in your Tutorial you have NVDAStartup.WEB.kext in /L/E after install the patched Web-Driver. I search in /S/L/E and I found a NVDAStartup.kext and I do the same  as what says the Tutorial but in all cases I can not found a NVDAStartup.web.kext, what is here wrong I don't understand, in my Sierra 10.12.6 in L/E/ I found this one not so in my Mojave 10.14.3 (18D42), I'm wondering that you have 18D45 what is here different ? My Update is a German Update .

In Case with Apple and Nvidia I found a Petition on change .org, Petition Mac OS 10.14 Apple does Nvidia not allow to make a Webdriver for Nvidia Products and we all help Apple to be a big Player and all Users have a chance to give Apple "Pressure" to work together with Nvidia to make Driver for Mojave.

Please help me a little bit to understand what is wrong with my patched NVDA-Webdriver.

My USB ports are all injected now and the Kext,.*ioreg and DSDT are here:

PS my Bios is a patched 3901.

Forget about patching the 10.13.6 web driver for 10.14 anyway. Your Nvidia GPU still will be useless under 10.14. I highly recommend to change to a Vega 56 or 64 instead. 

 

BTW.. please try to create fully implemented and truncated XHC USB kexts for your motherboard by exactly following my respective guidelines! Your current kext attached above is largely inadequate and cannot be added such to my XHC USB kext Github library.  

 

Good luck, my friend!

Hi, I have updated the bios first following this guide and then the system from 10.13.6 to 10.14.3.
The pc starts and I think it recognizes all the peripherals but I have doubts about the xcpm since the AppleIntelInfo.kext log is very short and also for some errors at boot like Unsynchronized TSC for cpu ...
I attach Ioreg, DarwinDumper log, EFI folder and AppleIntelInfo log

Thanks for your help.

Did you implement a properly adopted TSCAdjustReset.kext to your EFI-Folder by following my guidelines?

I think so as you can see from the efi folder from the link. I followed step 4 of the guide and I modified the info.plist by setting IOCPUNumber to 11 because the cpu i7-5820k has 6 cores and then 12 threads (IOCPUNumber = threads - 1 = 11).

 

I also tried to leave the old VoodooTSCSync file that I used before the update but the errors do not disappear

Download and implement THIS EFI-Folder and your system should boot properly. Subsequently perform entire post installation outlined in Section E.). If you still witness boot issues check once more your BIOS settings. The EFI-Folder now should be MacOS 10.14 build independent. 

 

The EFI-Folder assumes that you patched your BIOS firmware and unlocked your MSR register for Kernel write. If the MSR register is still locked, check KernelPM and enable _xcpm_core_scope_msrs © Pike R. Alpha kernel patch in config.plist.

 

For OC, you also need to apply the CPU microcode update to your firmware as outlined and described in my guide.  

 

Your GTX 780Ti is Kepler? In the latter case it will be natively supported by Mojave, but you might want to change to Vega 56 for 64 anyway when ever possible. 

 

Good luck,

 

KGP

Before moving to mojave I downloaded the last bios, updated CPU microcode and patched msr following the whole point B.1) Asus Mainboard BIOS Firmware Patching and B.2) Asus X99-A II BIOS Configuration but I enabled EIST and I deactivated 4G Decoding otherwise the system did not recognize the usb.

Now I did as you told me but I still have Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 2 and Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 4 and now the CPU is not recognized.

I replaced the whole efi folder and followed point E.1) XNU CPU Power Management (XCPM) Configuration with the following bios settings:

 

  • Advanced\CPU Configuration\CPU Power Management Configuration\
  • Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST): Enabled
  • Turbo mode: Enabled
  • CPU C-State: Enabled
  • Enhanced C1 State: Enabled
  • CPU C3 Report: Enabled
  • CPU C6 Report: Enabled
  • Package C State Limit: C6(non Retention) state

 

These are the clover settings for KernelToPatch and KextToPatch and the appleintelinfo log

I did as you told me but I still have Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 2 and Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 4 and now the CPU is not recognized.

These are the clover settings for KernelToPatch and KextToPatch and the appleintelinfo log

You did not do at all what I told you! I told you to use the linked EFI-Folder, you don’t! You use a total mess of kext and kernel patches instead! 3 performance patches enabled at the same time! No check of KernelPM yet! Etc., etc., etc.

 

No surprise the this mess does not boot! 

 

If you do not do what I tell you,  I cannot help you, sorry and I really don’t like to waste my time.

 

Also patch your firmware to unlock MSR register for Kernel write.

 

Good luck! 

 

Over and out,

I downloaded and uploaded the efi folder you linked to and then modified kernels and kexts patches based on my system by taking them from this thread:

Your guide in some sections speaks specifically of the cpu "Broadwell" and my CPU is instead a "Haswell-e" and I do not read anywhere in this guide about patches "SMT" and "PKG" for "Haswell-e" so I'll have to take them somewhere...

then if some patches are generic I do not know but I do not see it written...

 

Why should I use KernelPM if the MSR is unlocked? it seems to me that you do not absolutely read the logs, do I have to highlight it? because I do not see obvious differences with the log on the front page.

 

mine:

And then I never said that the system does not start.
The system starts but there are some errors in the log...


now i'll try to put only the _xcpm performance Kernel patch 10.14.3 (kindly provided by @PMHeart) of the first page but for the rest of the patches I do not know what to put.

If you still want to help me, maybe pointing out the correct patches for my system I'm grateful, otherwise thanks again for your help.

I downloaded and uploaded the efi folder you linked to and then modified kernels and kexts patches based on my system by taking them from this thread:

Your guide in some sections speaks specifically of the cpu "Broadwell" and my CPU is instead a "Haswell-e" and I do not read anywhere in this guide about patches "SMT" and "PKG" for "Haswell-e" so I'll have to take them somewhere...

then if some patches are generic I do not know but I do not see it written...

I already optimised the EFI-Folder for your i7-5820K (I am not stupid) and all is set to work with 10.14.3 and any other Mojave build! The EFI-Folder linked in the other post already considers all necessary adaptations to your build outlined in your signature (again I am not stupid) and should work for your system without any further modifications, especially when your MSR register is unlocked and you also applied the microcode update to your firmware as outlined in my guide. The actually implemented settings have been verified by many users of the i7-5820K and work flawless! 

 

It is also nonsense that my guide only considers Broadwell-E, README.md of my X99 EFI-Folder Github respository exactly outlines all necessary changes for the i7-5820K!

 

If with the linked EFI-Folder, your system still does not boot, check your BIOS settings.  

 

After successfully booting your system, you should still perform the post installation process outlined in Section E.) of my guide! However the post installation is not necessary for successfully booting your system, for the latter you just need to EFI-Folder linked in the other post without any further modifications! 

 

Good luck,

I once again replaced the whole efi folder with the one that you linked to me without adding Kext and Kernel patch and I started the pc over and over again trying to modify each time a different thing into Bios to try ALL combinations. (The bios is already patched with microcode and msr unlock: When I edited the bios I did not find any problem while running the uefipatch and UBU programs, so I assume I patched it correctly)

 

These are the items that I modified each time:

 

EIST (now disabled)
ASUS MultiCore Enhancement (now disabled)
VT-d Note (now disabled)
Decoding 4G (now disabled)

 

In addition to these changes in the bios I also tried to change the FakeCPUID from 0x040674 to 0x0306F2 (Haswell-E) and activate/deactivate KernelPM and Cores Patch...

 

The system starts ALWAYS but changes the number of "Unsynchronized TSC for CPU" entries in the boot log and the CPU is not recognized in the system info (3,3 Ghz Unknown CPU) .

 

For all the combinations I tried, the following commands returned the correct values as indicated in the guide.

 

"sysctl machdep.xcpm.mode"
"kextstat|grep -y x86plat"
"kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu"
"sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count"

 

What can I do? What am I doing wrong?

True.. I forgot to change FakeCPUID in your EFI-Folder.. may bad. You have to use 0x0306F2 of course. 

 

I don't really understand your problem. It is normal that TSCAdjustReset.kext fixes unsynchronised TSCs on boot or wake from sleep and the latter is also displayed within the verbose boot messages. This is just an expected behaviour and even mandatory in any case. The number of desynchronised TSCs to be synchronised varies from boot to boot (never the same). Without TSCAdjustReset.kext and without resynchronising the TSCs, your system would not even boot. That's why TSCAdjustReset.kext is absolutely mandatory. 

 

If you also successfully verified 

 

"sysctl machdep.xcpm.mode"
"kextstat|grep -y x86plat"
"kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu"
"sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count"

 

XCPM is properly installed and working on your system.

 

As your MSR register is unlocked you do not need to check KernelPM and or enable the core scope patch. If your MSR register would be locked, your system would not even boot without checking KernelPm and enabling the core scope patch.

 

I always understood that your system is not booting because of some TSC desynchronisations. But as I understand your report and results now, there is absolutely no issue and your system works and behaves absolutely as expected with the EFI-Folder linked in my other post, apart from the necessary FakeCPUID correction, as I forget to modify the latter for Haswell-E.

Correction of former macOS independent XCPM_performance patch

 

New EFI-Folders EFI-X99-10.14.3-Release-iMacPro1,1-020219.zip and EFI-X99-10.14.4-Beta1-Release-iMacPro1,1-020219.zip with Clover_v2.4k_r4862, working USB port limit patches and a macOS independent XCPM_performance patch valid for 10.13.4+ and all version of 10.14.

 

The correct macOS independent XCPM_performance patch valid for 10.13.4+ and all 10.14 versions reads:

 

Find:    C1E30848 63D389D0 48C1EA20 B99901
Replace: C1E308B8 00FF0000 31D29090 B99901

 

Fully vanilla EFI-Folders that should work with 10.13.4+ and all versions of 10.14, always provided that one also uses a truncated 15-port XHC USB kext in addition, with disabled USB port limit patches in the config.plist. There are still separate EFI-Folders for 10.14.3 and 10.14.4 Beta1, in case that somebody still wants to use a fully implemented XHC USB kext and the necessary respective USB port limit patches, which are disabled by default in the config.plist of each respective EFI-Folder distribution.

my fault, I thought those "Unsynchronized TSC" entries were not in the log and I saw them as errors to be solved

Only one thing, in the system info the cpu is seen as 3.3 GHz Unknown.


What can I do to fix this?

 

Thanks again for your help and your time.

Just use Type 0x0F01 in config.plist as hardwired in my default 10.14 EFI-Folder distribution:

This will replace "unknown" by Intel Xeon W, in concordance with SMBIOS iMacPro1,1 although in reality you use a Haswell-E. 

Unfortunately, the better cosmetic patch described in Section E.10) System Overview CPU Cosmetics of my HighSierra X299 iMacPro build and desktop guide does not work under Mojave. 

 

Hope this solves your last remaining issue.

      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
      MB: Gigabyte Aorus X470 Ultra Gaming
      Memory: 4x8 GB HyperX Predator, 3000 MHz Cl15
      Storage: Samsung Evo 970 Nvme 512 GB, Crucial MX500 500GB SATA
      GPU: MSI Radeon RX580 GamingX 8GB

      Hi guys,
       
      So, this little tutorial is meant to help people fix a new issue with Mojave: opening jpg files (looks like it happens with larger files, not so much with smaller ones) using Quick Look (on spacebar key pressed) or Preview app, using the dedicated GPUs.
      The issue is that, when trying to open jpg files (for some reason, it doesn't occur with pngs), the pop-up window would remain in an endless loop. And from that point forward, any other app trying to open the same file will either become unresponsive (in the case of the Preview app) or just stay in endless loop (in case of Quick Look)
       
      As a workaround, in case the tutorial below doesn't work for you, you can use Grab (built-in app in MacOS) to open said files.
       
      This issue DOES NOT occur using the iGPU. So...if you're comfortable using the iGPU, just switch to that and you should be good to go. You don't need this tutorial.
       
      This tutorial is based on @Cyberdevs' research and testing on this topic (especially useful if you're using an RX series AMD video card), and my own very limited time testing this on my rig. I just thought it would be useful to create a new thread for it so that people can discuss this particular issue here.

       
      With that being said, I'll just move on to the actual tutorial.
       
      New (probably better) method.
       
      Switch your SMBIOS in Clover config in regards to the dedicated GPU you're using, instead of the CPU. Take a look here and choose the corresponding SMBIOS closest to your hardware.
      Yeah, that's it.
       
      In case you lose CPU PM with this method, there are multiple ways to fix that, and they do not make the object of this thread.  It worked perfectly fine for me though and I didn't need to change anything else.
       
      Alternatively, you can also try one of the MacPro SMBIOSes, such as MacPro5,1 or MacPro6,1. It was tested multiple times and it showed good results. 
      Keep in mind that choosing these will most likely not show you an iGPU in System Report, since those machines generally (probably all of them) use Xeon CPUs with no iGPUs either.
       
      /!\NOTE: There have been reports saying that using this method (switching SMBIOS to a MacPro one) with newer versions of MacOS may cause iTunes to crash.
      So...keep that in mind and better try some of the other methods mentioned here.
       
      A simple Lilu plugin
       
      Thanks to vulgo for the plugin and @Matgen84 for sharing and testing it, we now have yet another possible solution to this issue. It's a Lilu plugin (which means that it requires Lilu.kext in order to work) it's called NoVPAJpeg, and it can be downloaded from here.
      You use it as a regular kext, alongside Lilu. I prefer (and recommend) using it within the EFI folder, in Clover/kexts/Other. But if you want to use it in S/L/E, that should work just fine.
       
      More info can be found in this post here.
       
      UPDATE:
       
      According to Vulgo, NoVPAJpeg.kext is now deprecated.
      In case its functionality is needed, use WhateverGreen.kext (alongside Lilu.kext) and add the following boot arguments:
      shikigva=32 shiki-id=Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94 In case you wanna try alternative medicine  ...
       
      The main thing we need to do is actually very simple: we need to enable the iGPU (integrated GPU) by default, in BIOS, while actually being connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      For ATI GPUs (curtesy of @Cyberdevs' post here).
       
      The discreet GPU should be set as primary in BIOS and your displays should be connected to your discreet GPU
      The iGD/iGPU/iGFX must be enabled in BIOS/UEFI as the secondary GPU.
       
      I removed the DSDT Reconfigured the config.plist to and removed some flags which weren't needed because of the DSDT added the InjectATI + Ornioco Framebuffer (I removed the Orinoco framebuffer because of some weird glitches but it might be useful for other AMD GPUs if you inject the correct framebuffer according to your GPU. No need to inject anything for nVidia GPUs unless your GPU needs it) Added the InjectIntel + ig-platform-id for my intel HD530 (for intel HD 530 I use the 0x19120001 ig-platform-id)  
      Steps 5 to 7 might not be necessary I just did them anyway, if anyone succeeded to get quicklook working without those steps let me know so I can exclude those steps.

           Also confirmed to work with AMD R9 270X on a SandyBridge rig (without an iGPU) using WhateverGreen + Lilu kexts, which also helped to solve the transparency issue along with the Quick Look problem, it also resolved the buggy Screen Capture (Command+Shift+5) issue as well. 
       
          Also, do:
      nvram cleanup kextcache & prelinked kernel rebuild reboot  More info on that here.
       
       
      For NVIDIA GPUs (tested on my old MSi GTX 650)
       
      This is what I needed for my NVIDIA GPU and the MSI motherboard in the signature (*since then, I upgraded my GPU to my current RX 580). Your milage may vary, depending on your hardware. But, the idea should be the same regardless.
       
         For MSi motherboads (check out my motherboard details in the signature)
       
      Set your BIOS to use PEG (dedicated GPU) so you can boot.
      Since you're reading this, chances are that you're already connected to the dedicated GPU and the BIOS is set to PEG. So just go into BIOS and see if you're using the iGPU or the dedicated (PEG) graphics device by default.
      If you're already using this, skip to Step 3 (the part AFTER Reboot). Reboot (I think you don't necessarily need to boot into the OS...but you do need to reboot at least until Clover UI) Reboot back into BIOS and set it from PEG to IGD (integrated graphics) WITHOUT removing the cable. Save Reboot again.  
         The result should be that the OS is tricked into thinking you're booting with the IGPU when in fact you're using the dedicated GPU.
       
         For Gigabyte motherboards
       
         Set:
      Peripherals -> Initial Display Output -> iGFX Chipset -> Internal Graphics -> Enabled
           DVMT Pre-Allocation -> default 64M.
           DVMT Total Gfx Mem -> default 256M Save Reboot  
         You should do this with the cable connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      You will also need to patch the iGPU from Clover config.
      1. Graphics -> Inject Intel (UNCHECK Inject Nvidia or ATI if it's checked).
      2. ig-platform-id (in my case for Intel HD 4600 Desktop) it was: 0x0d220003
       
      And use IntelGraphicsFixup.kext (now included into WhateverGreen.kext) in Clover/kexts/Other. In my particular case, without the kext, I would get freezes in Safari.
       
      Another way to activate the iGPU while having the dGPU set as primary is by going into BIOS/SAG/Graphics Configuration/iGPU and setting Multi-Monitor to [Enabled], all the rest remains on [Auto], and set Inject/Intel to [True] in Clover config.*.
       
      Thanks to @gjw for the tip.
       
      *Motherboard dependent. But the multi-monitor option might be the same regardless of manufacturer.
       
       
      This might be a bug with Mojave and it could be fixed by Apple in the future. but in the meantime, feel free to use this if it helps you fix the issue.
       
      For HP motherboards (including laptops), so far no solution, unless the BIOS somehow allows to switch from dGPU to iGPU and vice-versa.
       
      Cheers!

      Please read me:
      Ever since macOS Mojave came out (I mean the first DP) Apple removed the support for Atheros based WiFi Adapters from the IO80211Family.kext, so to fix it we need to add the AirPortAtheros40.kext to the Extensions manually.
      After each clean install the AirPortAtheros40.kext needs to be installed and after clean installing Mojave DPs after few times I decides to create this app to save some time.
       
      How to use it:
      This application will install the missing AirPortAtheros40.kext into /System/Library/Extensions and after the installation is done and once you reboot your computer the Atheros based WiFi adapters will be enabled.
      The installation is the first step of the process and it is fast but the next steps which are repairing the permission on /System/Library/Extensions and rebuilding the system caches might take a while so please wait until you were asked to reboot your computer.
       
      I'm using a TP-Link WDN4800 with an Atheros chipset and it works on other similar hardware.
       
      If this app helped you please consider donating; any amount is appreciated.

      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      - Shutdown and insert the flash.
      - Power on with DEL pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Periphelrals - Initial Display to IGP
      - Change value: Periphelrals - USB Configuration - XHCI Hand-off to ENABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - VT-d to DISABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - Internal Graphics to ENABLE
      - Change value: Chipset - DVMT Pre-Allocated to 128M
      - Save & Exit Setup
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
      - It will show twice. One with UEFI prefix and another without.
      - Select with UEFI prefix. Ie.: "UEFI: Sandisk Cruzer"
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "HD".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your destination disk EFI parittion, with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

      If the flash drive EFI partition of your destination disk or flash drive is unmounted:
      Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 0 for destination disk and 1 for flash drive.
       
      Then, eject the flash drive.
       
      Last step
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.14/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      Updates
       
      System update 10.14.6
       
      - Download and open latest CloverConfigurator
      - Open Mount EFI and click in Mount Partition in EFI Partitions list
      - Click in Open Partition that appears
      - Go to EFI -> CLOVER
      - Backup config.plist and ACPI folder to desktop
      - Go back and delete CLOVER folder
      (If you restart now you can't boot in macOS - DON'T RESTART)
      - Download latest Clover and install (link and config above)
      - Replace config.plist and ACPI folder from your desktop
       
      - Update Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext, WhateverGreen.kext, HWSensors kexts (FakeSMC, ACPIMonitor, IntelCPUMonitor, ITEIT87x) in /Library/Extensions/
      - Run:
       
      sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i /  
       
      - Install macOS Update 10.14.6 and restart
