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.

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+

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. :)

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.

      Buongiorno a tutti,
       
      La scorsa settimana ho aggiornato High Sierra a Mojave seguendo le rispettive guide per l' aggiornamento dei Kext all' interno della partizione EFI. Tutte le periferiche funzionano correttamente audio compreso ( di solito non parte al primo riavvio ), tranne la Vram della scheda grafica integrata in firma ( 7 MB riconosciuti). Premesso che:
      - Ho aggiornato Lilu e aggiunto WhateverGreen nella cartella EFI/Clovers/Kexts/10.14 & EFI/Clovers/Kexts/Other
      - Ho rimosso IntelGraphicsFixup & Shiki
      - Ho rimosso Inject Intel con il relativo platform Id della scheda video ( era necessaria per High Sierra)
      - Con Clover configurator ho aggiunto sotto Device -> Proprieties  platform id, device id, Framebuffer-unifedmem ecc. ecc. ( Vedere config.plist in allegato)
      Al boot mi esce il messaggio [IGPU] Failed to initialize graphics firmware e si blocca la schermata. Qualora dovessi mettere un FakeId o semplicemente fare da clover Inject Intel + Platform Id: 0x00001912 ( se metto il Platform giusto 0x19120000 mi da sempre il solito errore), il sistema ovviamente parte senza problemi ma con 7MB di VRam.
       
      Mi è sfuggito qualcosa?
       
      Grazie in anticipo

      This is bothering me for a long time now: Why does Apple deliberately disables the the RX4xx, RX5xx capabilities to hardware encode HEVC and is using Intel Quicksync instead? Is it to make the iMacPro look better than it is? I stumbled over a thread at tony-mac where people are going a totally different road for Radeon graphics. Instead of hassling around with getting Quicksync to work, they proposed to activate the AMD hardware renderer for Polaris GPU's. I tried it out and it works...somewhat
       
      I used a dummy kext from that tomato thread and edited it, so that it enables the AMDU7V4 IOGVACodec like on Vega cards, switched to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS from iMac18,3, disabled the IGPU and the results were astonishing:
      My 3:34min 4k50p film was rendered by FCP with HEVC in 2:34 minutes. Nearly half the time than with Quicksync! With the iMac18 SMBIOS and the "help" of Intel Quicksync it took FCP 4:41 minutes to get it done!
       
      The problem is: As soon as the "wrong" IOGVACodec is enabled H.264 encoding leads to Mojave crashing at once (be it FCP, QuickTime or Videoproc). Watching H264 material is fine, though. 
       
      If anyone has any idea how to handle this, I would be very grateful. I would even accept Mojave using software encoding for H264 if I could keep this amazing speeds on HEVC!
       
      BTW: Without IGPU on iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS no problem with DRM or iTunes, no need for Whatevergreen or Shiki. That is a bonus

      Making a High Sierra USB Installer Entirely From Scratch in Windows
      This is a proof of concept tutorial, to show it's possible to create a vanilla High Sierra installer, entirely from scratch, in Windows (even without App Store downloaded "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from a real Mac ).  @PikeRAlpha's link to Apple's Software Catalog provides us with all the URLs necessary to download the needed files directly from Apple instead of some dubious source from the internet...
       

      Pre-Requisites
      8GB or larger USB drive Boot Disk Utility v2.1.2017rev021b from @CVAD TransMac (free 15 day trial) Paragon Hard Disk Manager Free Download Installer Files Directly from Apple
      1)  Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist (Hint - search page for "InstallESD" to find its URL and others nearby)

      to a folder named "SharedSupport" on your Windows NTFS drive.  A browser download manager (eg Chrono for Chrome, dTA for FireFox) is handy since InstallESD is >4GB ---> allows you to pause/resume interrupted download...

      2)  Rename InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg
      3)  Edit InstallInfo.plist with WordPad/text editor to remove the chunklistURL and chunklistid keys for InstallESD, and renaming it from InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg (example of edited file attached to this post)...
      Note:  You can verify the SHA1 checksum of your InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg with the correct ones at this website.
      Boot Disk Utility to format the Installer USB and Restore OS X Base System HFS partition
      1.  Format USB with BDU & latest Clover ---> creates boot files in CLOVER partition + second FAT partition
      2.  Extract 4.hfs from \SharedSupport\BaseSystem.dmg with BDU --> save to it's local folder
      3.  Restore 4.hfs to USB second partition with BDU --->  2nd partition becomes bootable "OS X Base System"
      Paragon Hard Disk Manager to extend HFS Partition to its Full Extent
      Open Paragon Partition Manager Free and resize the second partition of the USB drive to the full size allowed.  Don't forget to apply the changes at the end...
      Transmac to Copy "SharedSupport" folder to OS X Base System
      1.  Open the TransMac program and navigate to the HFS+ Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents folder.  Right click anywhere in the empty space on the RHS pane and select "Copy Here"...
      2.  In the next stage, select the "SharedSupport" folder we created above as the "Files and Folders to be copied to the Mac Volume"...
      Clover Settings
      Clover configuration is required now.  The default config.plist (in the Clover FAT32 partition of the USB) maybe sufficient to boot your machine if you’re lucky.  If not, look at the Clover Wiki, Clover Instructions and Clover Configuration Thread for pointers and edit /EFI/Clover/config.plist accordingly with Wordpad or Notepad.
      The location of the important configuration files for Clover are summarized below
      config.plist--->EFI/CLOVER folder DSDT.aml with or without SSDT.aml--->EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (don't need one if your DSDT is auto patched by Clover in config.plist) Kexts eg FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement --->EFI/CLOVER/kexts/<osx version> or /Other. NB BootDiskUtility by default already has FakeSMC.kext installed here.  You may need to add VoodooPS2Controller for your laptop keyboard/trackpad to work. If UEFI booting, you will most likely need one of the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 drivers copied from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers-off/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. If you want to use the installer to run High Sierra in Windows on VMware, you can follow my guide to set up the Virtual Machine and replace Clover's default config with EFI_Clover for VMware (which is compatible to run in VMware).  In the screenshots below, I have attached the USB Installer (in this case PhysicalDrive7) to my macOS Virtual Machine.  Reboot the system to the USB installer to install High Sierra ...
      What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?
      Not a problem, as long as we get "OS X Base System" bootable, we can launch terminal from the Utilities Menu to copy the SharedSupport folder over to the Installer app.  In essence, we will build the full installer app = 5GB+ on the target HD eg "Macintosh HD", by copying both the "small" installer app = 15MB (on "OS X Base System") and the SharedSupport folder from the NTFS volume (mounted in this example on /Volumes/DATA)...
      -bash-3.2# cd / -bash-3.2# cp -R Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/ -bash-3.2# cp -R /Volumes/DATA/SharedSupport /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/  
      ...then start installation with the startosinstall utility...
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app  
      The above steps can be automated with the attached "startosinstall.command" script, which will assemble "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on "Macintosh HD" and launch the startosinstall utility targeting the "Macintosh HD" volume.  Copy/download to "Macintosh HD", then run in terminal (after attaching DATA USB with /Shared Support folder)...
      cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD" chmod +x startosinstall.command ./startosinstall.command Updated Download Links for macOS Mojave 10.14_18A391
      Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist  
      Note: In Mojave, Apple has removed the --converttoapfs NO and --applicationpath arguments from the startosinstall utility....
       
      eg to use startosinstall for the above section "What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?", the syntax is now
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD  
      This basically means that for Mojave, the default installation will always convert the target volume to the apfs file system.

      Put the Clover installer on the flash drive too.
       
      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
      - Change value: Chipset - Wake On Lan to DISABLE
      - 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 config.plist inside your destination disk EFI parittion with config.plist inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with terminal "sudo diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.
       
      Last step
       
      Copy all Kexts from flash drive to /Library/Extensions, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo cp -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.14/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -Rf 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel sudo kextcache -system-caches Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!

       
      And last but not least
