Based on your hardware specs you should be able to use the methods provided in the first post. How is your config.plist configured?

Are you using any kexts for activating your GPUs or you just use clover's injections or DSDT/SSDTs for your hardware?

The only kexts I use that effect the GPU are Lilu and Whatevergreen as they allow me to use my DP on the RX580. I can upload my EFI if you want to have a look.

Yeah upload your EFI folder I will take a look, please remove the following folders from the EFI folder and the following data from your config.plist before uploading it:

Folders:

Apple

Themes

 

Data from config.plist

1. Serial Number

2. MLB

3. UUID or SmUUID if you have them.

Thanks for the help but I am pleased to say I have got it working. I had another look at my BIOS and found the IGPU in the advanced system agent. I enabled it and my preview is working perfectly.

As a followup to my earlier posting, I have been able to get this working on my Coffee Lake system I wrote about earlier. (Gigabyte Z370XP SLI, i5-8400, RX-580) The recent Public Beta (18A365a) added some more systems into the graphics support, Pavo wrote this somewhere in the main Mohave pre-release thread.

 

I used Clover Configurator to generate the smbios section for an iMac Pro, removed stuff like the firmware features, etc. -- letting Clover generate that information, and replaced this small smbios section in my main config.plist, took the machine offline and restarted. Preview and QuickLook worked as they should. I did not have to turn on the IGPU in the BIOS settings, nor use inject-intel = true or make any other changes.

 

So Pavo's idea about the smbios settings waaaaaay back when does look like it is on the mark. Hopefully Apple will keep adding more systems so that Preview and QuickLook work right, after all iTunes, Safari, pretty much all of the other apps use jpegs and display them correctly already.

 

Thank you all for your help.

Yeah DP7 seems to be more forth coming on the Graphics and overall performance. I recently updated my SandyBridge rig with no IGPU and only the AMD R9 270X and there are almost no issues in regard to preview, quick look and Screen Capture (Video)

I'm confident that with the final release all the issues will be resolved.

I turned of my IGPU and Preview fails to open JPG's. Perhaps the next update will sort out Preview for RX580's. Back to switching my IGPU back on. :)

I believe for iMac17,1 SMBIOS you need to leave the iGPU on because in a real iMac17,1 the intel hd 530 frambuffer is loading when macOS starts, even though there's no RX580 chipset for the dGPU in the iMac17,1 but it is how it's defined.

up dated to:10.14 Beta (18A365a). only after Adding a Sapphire 280X . In the second PCI slot (as i couldnt be bothered to change the water cooled loop around.And. As no support for EVGA GTX 1070

All seems to work ok except previewing jpg screen shots

My mobo has Intel HD Graphics 2500 chip. I have put my activated IGFX in BIOS and tried to configure it by adding IntelGraphicsFixup.kext in /EFI/Clover/kexts/other and removing DSDT. But mojave just completed boot (using -v) and the display just remained black with the text without showing the GUI. In Sierra it caused kernel panic and reboot.

What is the model of you main GPU?

as far as I know the intel HD 2500 is not supported in macOS you can use it to stop the dGPU from being initialized during boot which is not the case in macOS and resolving the black screen issue.

Actually HD2500 is my inbuild GPU. If it is unsupported in Mac, I won't be able to enable it and have to use my GT 730 card instead.

Yes you need to use your GT730 instead, even if you get the HD2500 to be recognized by macOS you won't have acceleration for the HD2500 GPU anyway so I doubt it would be helpful.

Which version of Mojave are you trying to install? because I guess the transparency issue is now fixed on DP8 and newer releases.

I have fully functional 7790 and R9 270X macOS Mojave since DP8 but I'm not sure about nVidia GPUs but I think your GT730 is supported natively. isn't it?

Is there any other solution instead of changing SMBIOS? I don't have iGPU in my processor Xeon 1231v3 (Haswell). My PC is Asus Maximus VII Hero, Xeon 1231v3, Sapphire RX 480 8GB Nitro+

Did you not get to the alternative medicine part of the tutorial? :)

NVIDIA GT 730 Is natively supported. Only problem was Preview and Quick Look. As suggested in this forum, enabling HD 2500 was required to solve this problem. But I couldnot make it to work on Mojave and read somewhere that it is not supported since Mavericks. So I changed my SMBIOS to MacPro 6.1 and Preview and Quck Look works perfectly.

Its worth mentioning that the 'alternative medicine' will most likely disable the encode/decode capabilities of the external GPU. You can bypass it with the -shikigva=4 bootflag on Skylake/KabyLake rigs...

That is indeed good info. Thank you. I haven't tried this method on any Skylake builds yet. At least none with a supported dedicated GPU. So yeah, I could not confirm it working in this particular case. Good to know. Thanks. :)

Hello...

 

I have the same issue with Mojave Public Beta on Desktop, Quick Look and Preview app glitch for JPG files. But In my case i have no Graphics card, only integrated graphics (intel HD 4400). My Display is connect to Display Port (DP). I have VGA and DP option for Display connection no HDMI. 

 

My config is attached.

Strange. This issue should not occur with the iGPU (and it didn't in my case). I know this is your first post, and I welcome you to this forum, but I'm gonna ask you to add your hardware information to your signature to see what we're dealing with. I can see you're using a Haswell system. But still, it would be nice to know a little more than that. :)

 

If your WhateverGreen kext is up to date (as it should be), you shouldn't need IntelGraphicsFixup kext anymore since it's already included into WEG. Could you try to remove it (or move it to Desktop, so you can put it back in case of anything) and try again?

 

About the config, I would strongly recommend you to always remove serial numbers from SMBIOS and RT Variables before uploading your config (or the entire EFI) for analysis.

 

Also, could you try iMac14,2 for once and see if it makes any difference? You can simply make a copy of your current config.plist, edit it, and rename the old one for iMac13,3 to configiMac13,3.plist or something, so you can access it from Clover GUI in case you need it (you can name it whatever you want, but it needs to contain the "config" part).

 

And could you please, check the option to Inject System ID in your config's System Parameters section?

Otherwise, config looks ok.

      Hello! Sorry for the way of writing in English, I'm using google translator.
      I am several days trying to make my Mojave hakintosh work perfectly. However, I have reached a point where I can no longer proceed without help.
      Almost all hardawares were installed and recognized (using the clover). However, still have a panic kernel (capture attached). Every time, when connecting the MAC it restarts 2 or 3 times to be able to show the dekstop and to function normal. I also think that having problem with video graphics sometimes freezes the entire display system if video appears on a web page.
      I've attached a file with used files: clover, bios capture, complete hardware information, error capture(https://1drv.ms/u/s!AvhW45_HBY8zgfsySZPWZ-SZXFiMfA). Can someone help me?

      Also disabled VD-T and enabled XHCI and disabled CFG Lock

      So i went through all the steps first i had an issue with my usb that it wasn't bootable
      Fix: Go to disk utility, find your USB and erase the data and use GUID Partition Map

      Now further with my problem,

      So i fixed that issue i had and then the installation was freezed on loading, then i turned on XHCI in bios usb configuration..
      And also in clover into settings and removed dart=0,

      Then it started loading!
      BUT now after the loading i get the parking sign and i do not know what to do now.

      I tried everything, sometimes when i reinstalled everything i didn't have parking sign but just a reboot when the apple logo showed up very weird here is some verbose output:

      https://imgur.com/a/Re1oOsI#JRTeX63

      So i tried literally everything...

      Please someone help me..
      And like i don't know call in discord or anything and go through the installation with me cuz its just not working.
      And i don't know what i'm not doing or doing wrong...
      Thanks for the help

      Framebuffer patching in Mojave
      Binary patching framebuffers using KextsToPatch in Clover is no longer a viable method in Mojave for Skylake and above. Now you need to use Lilu + WhateverGreen.
       
      Not just for Mojave
      This method of framebuffer patching is not only required for Mojave we recommend it for all previous and future releases of macOS.
       
      Coffee Lake Users
      Please note that the new WhateverGreen will not work with fake Kaby Lake platform-id's. You will need to have either macOS 10.14 Beta 4 (18A336e) or macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112). The latter is a special build only available to MacBookPro15,1 or MacBookPro15,2 board id's. You can create a macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112) installer by running installinstallmacos.py. (Update: vit9696 added back ability to fake Kaby Lake platform-id's)
       
      Lilu + WhateverGreen
      WhateverGreen is going to replace all the other video patching plugins for Lilu (it currently has merged WhateverGreen, IntelGraphicsFixup, NvidiaGraphicsFixup, Shiki and CoreDisplayFixup). Others will likely follow (such as AppleALC, HibernationFixup and IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup). This is aiming to be the all-in-one solution for video.
       
      Beta Warning
      Please note that it is currently in a "beta" state so use it at your own risk. I am just documenting this here for those of you who want to get framebuffer patching now.
       
      Preliminary
      1. Remove:
      - FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics
      - IntelGraphicsFixup
      - NvidiaGraphicsFixup
      - CoreDisplayFixup
      - Shiki
      2. Turn off all graphics injections in Clover:
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/ATI=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/Intel=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/NVidia=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/ig-platform-id=
      - config.plist/Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX=

      3. Disable DSDT Clover fixes:
      - AddHDMI
      - FixDisplay
      - FixIntelGfx
      - AddIMEI
      4. Disable UseIntelHDMI
      5. Remove boot argument: -disablegfxfirmware
      6. Remove any IGPU and HDMI entries from:
      - config.plist/Devices/Arbitrary
      - config.plist/Devices/Properties
      - config.plist/Devices/AddProperties
      7. Remove any IGPU and HDMI related SSDT and DSDT from:
      - CLOVER/ACPI/patched
      8. Renaming GFX0 -> IGPU
      - WhateverGreen will do this automatically (see caveat below)
      - Be aware that WhateverGreen does not rename all instances of GFX0 -> IGPU but should be okay in most cases
      - You may need to include Clover GFX0 -> IGPU rename for other kexts or ACPI patching that require it
       
      Compile Lilu + WhateverGreen
      Download WhateverGreen. Make sure you place the debug version of Lilu into the root of WhateverGreen before you compile. Install Lilu and WhateverGreen kext's into the usual place. Compile WhateverGreen as debug if you want to view debug output.
       
      Having trouble compiling?
      If you're having trouble compiling you can wait for the official binaries or download my (unsupported) build_lilu.sh shell script and run it in a folder to download and build Lilu + WhateverGreen using Xcode automatically. I recommend you try the debug versions first (place them into Clover's EFI/Clover/kexts/Other folder).
       
      Get the device path of your IGPU:
      Download and use the gfxutil tool like so:
      $ ./gfxutil -f IGPU DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) ig-platform-id
      For the AAPL,ig-platform-id (AAPL,snb-platform-id for Sandy Bridge) entry Clover requires this value to be in Data format so you need to reverse the bytes. So if you want your platform-id to be 0x3EA50009 first reverse the bytes (0900A53E) then use Xcode's plist editor to add the values to Clover's config.plist.

       
      What ig-platform-id should I use for my system?
      You should choose one that is the closest match to your system. I recommend you do some research on this before choosing one. See post #2 for available options. More info can be found here.
       
      You can determine the generation of your CPU by the first digit after the hyphen.

      Framebuffer Patching
      WhateverGreen does most of the work automatically for you and in most cases you do not need any extra Framebuffer Patching. At the minimum though you should choose an ig-platform-id suitable for your system and place it in config.plist/Devices/Properties like this:

      Here are some reasons why you might need extra Framebuffer Patching:
      - Setting DVMT for those who can't set it above 32 MB in BIOS (framebuffer-stolenmem / framebuffer-fbmem)
      - Setting higher VRAM (framebuffer-unifiedmem)
      - Disabling eGPU (disable-external-gpu)
      - Enable pixel clock patch for 4K support (enable-hdmi20)
      - Disabling connectors to enable sleep (framebuffer-pipecount / framebuffer-portcount / framebuffer-conX-type=-1)
      - Removing CNConnectorAlwaysConnected flag for eDP laptop screens on < 10.13.6 (framebuffer-con0-flags=0x00000090)
      - Changing connector types to match your systems ports (framebuffer-conX-type)
       
      Framebuffer Patching Types
      We have three different types of patches:
       
      1. Arbitrary (Recommended)
      framebuffer-patch-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id) (all below are optional) framebuffer-mobile framebuffer-pipecount framebuffer-portcount framebuffer-memorycount framebuffer-stolenmem framebuffer-fbmem framebuffer-unifiedmem framebuffer-cursormem (Haswell only) framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-conX-index framebuffer-conX-busid framebuffer-conX-pipe framebuffer-conX-type framebuffer-conX-flags 2. All Data
      framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-conX-alldata 3. Find / Replace
      framebuffer-patchX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-patchX-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id) framebuffer-patchX-find framebuffer-patchX-replace framebuffer-patchX-count (optional; defaults to 1) You should place your patches in config.plist/Devices/Properties in Clover config.plist.
       
      Here are some example patches:
      - 32MB BIOS, 19MB stolen (framebuffer) 9MB fbmem (cursor) 2048MB unifiedmem (vram)

       
      - Pipe / Port Count 3 to 2
      - Connector 1 DP to HDMI
      - Connector 2 Disable

       
      Here is an example of the All Data method:

       
      Here is an example of the Find / Replace method:

       
      Framebuffer Dumps
      There are two ways to dump your framebuffer data (both require WhateverGreen + Lilu debug versions):
       
      1. Using -igfxdump boot flag to dump IGPU framebuffer kext to /AppleIntelFramebuffer_X_Y (root of your boot drive)
       
      There are several ways of reading this dump:
      - Using 010 Editor along with the IntelFramebuffer.bt template
      - Using Intel FB-Patcher File->Open menu
       
      2. Using -igfxfbdump boot flag to dump native and patched framebuffer table to ioreg at IOService:/IOResources/WhateverGreen
       
      There are several ways of reading this dump:
      - Using dump_platformlist.sh shell script
      - Using Intel FB-Patcher File->Import->IOReg Dump menu
       
      Debug Output
      To get debug output from Lilu use the -liludbgall flag and for WhateverGreen use the -wegdbg boot flag. You will need to compile Lilu and WhateverGreen as debug for both of these flags to work.
       
      To view debug paste the following into Terminal (weglog.txt will output to your home directory):
      log show --predicate 'process == "kernel" AND (eventMessage CONTAINS "WhateverGreen" OR eventMessage CONTAINS "Lilu")' --style syslog --source --last boot >weglog.txt
