I did freah install and Mojave auto create APFS on my mechanical drive haha.. i thought only in SSD

 

With Mojave, Apple added support for HDD/Fusion drives, as well. :)

 

As for the Clover drivers available with the installer, there are a lot more discussions about it in the Clover General section. So I would suggest using that for more info on the topic. 

But in a nutshell, those drivers (or at least some of them, were always there, and considered "mandatory", so they were not displayed to the user in the installer UI). Now, whether or not some of them are mandatory, is debatable, cause what's mandatory for my system might not be mandatory for yours, and vice-versa. However, some of them are (such as apfs.efi or HFSPlus/VBoxHfs.efi).

The idea is that now all the drivers are available to the user so he can choose whatever he wants. The only problem is if you're a new user and you have no idea what each one of those is doing and which ones you need vs which ones you don't. But...as I said, I would strongly suggest talking this in more details in the Clover thread. There are a TON of discussions about it already.

 

Now, for as far as the Preview issues I mentioned before, it seems to work for all the people with iGPUs, but the results with eGPUs are a bit confusing. Some people have this issue, some people don't... Anyway, I hope it's just a bug, being the first beta, and will be fixed in the next updates. Cause I do use Quick Look and Preview on a daily basis.

Hey guys, newbie questions here, I'm using cover R4515, I got to the installer and start installing Mojave, but when I boot to finish up the 2nd part of the install this comes up.

What am I doing wrong?

Not sure what an error -3 is but wondering if it is due to a corrupt installer? What process are you using to install it? Are you doing an update or a clean install via a USB drive?

Yep... Sounds like it. Corrupt...or maybe incomplete.

Check the install log from installation screen top menu, you will see the error come from.

If you already have Clover 4515 installed on your HDD/SSD, you can use that to boot the USB drive, as well. Which has the advantage of keeping your USB drive untouched so you can put (ONLY) the installer on it.

 

So, if you previously had Clover on it I would recommend removing it from EFI and using the one on your HDD to boot. Should also be easier since you won't need to constantly switch to the USB drive in Boot option screen. Not to mention, once the files are copied to the HDD/SSD, the installation actually continues from there, for as far as I know. So...I'm not sure you will need the USB drive anymore at this point. Could be wrong though.

 

Anyway, what I would suggest:

1. Format the USB drive (including EFI, or at least mount it and remove Clover from there manually, if you previously had it)

2. Download the FULL installer. Make sure it's the complete one, and not just some 17MB installer. It needs to have around 5GB.

3. Wait until it pops up to install it and Quit that.

4. Open up Terminal and do:

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled

This assumes that your USB drive is called "Untitled" (default naming scheme). If that's not the case, adjust this part in the command above and try again.

 

5. Wait for the process to complete.

6. Boot from your HDD/SSD's Clover installation and select the USB drive (it most likely got renamed to something like "install......10.14 Beta" or something like that).

7. Decide which partition you want to use and whether or not you want to format it and use that one for future reboots (it should say something like "Boot Install from....[insert partition name here]").

 

Let's see if this works.

Mine is also working fine here

 

Using the iGPU or the eGPU? Did you manage to get Nvidia driver working in Mojave...? Also, I'm not sure, but I don't think "borked" means working fine.... So...are you confirming it working or not working for you, too? Cause I'm confused.

I had to remove lpssi2c kext cause applesmc will panics with it along side my DSDT, with alc 1.2.8 and alcbetaall and lilubeta sound got fixed without changing layout id, still no acceleration despite having "patched" the web driver's plist with the correct macOS version... my 1060 is being recognized but no acceleration and lot of artifacts, btw the OS looks very good, dark mode is sweet!

Yes I'm having those previews bugs and the app crashes if I launch it...

But it's ok for a beta!

all right. HD 3000, now, get black screen after pass verbose screen.

i tested all graphic files of High Sierra in 10.14.

 

My Sandy Bridge laptop issue in 10.14

1. CPUPM

2. HD 3000 Accelerator

 

except list above, all is good.

 

if someone find some solution, it's best. or give up 10.14 in sandy brigde laptop.

i think users of 1st generation laptop have been experienced since long time ago.

hope they find some solution. i will return High Sierra on 4230s.

thanks.

 

I don't think it's same case as 1st Gen Intel HD that need to just enabling QE/CI features, AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext is still found on SLE under hSierra and prev. macOS. But on Mojave as we've talk earlier, AppleIntelSNBFramebuffer* has gone. And even if it's still there, not really sure it'll be loaded bcoz Metal incapable.. or you found a way to force loading 10.13's kext under Mojave?

The Problems are HD3000graphics and CapriFB kexts. All others are loaded. Mine is not 3000 one is a 2000 with 106 ID. I have minor issues but all important works as all pervious versions the differences only noisy thing is flickering on boot and launchpad not fluid.

Very important I don't use any DSDT or SSDT and all kexts are on S/L/E. I use a manual customized config.

What is Mojave file size after downloading? Mine has 5.71GB, but everyone mentions around 5GB... I cannot install Mojave no matter what I do, now I am wondering if the file size is correct.

 

I downloaded from the App Store using beta access utility. How can it be different? :blink:

Good news is my GT 520M (Fermi GF119) works OOTB under macOS 10.14 Beta with native NVDA driver, with fully QE/CI enabled I think I'm just lucky with my 2nd Gen CPU that doesn't use IntelHD3000. :P

I was using the layout 1 but it no longer works even with the new AppleALC 1.2.8

Normally I do not use AppleALC, but I've compiled the latest revision and it works with layout-id 1. Have you tried it without any DSDT changes?. AppleALC 1.2.8 should set the layout-id to 7, if not, add the following code to the HDEF device in your DSDT.

 

                    "alc-layout-id", 
                    Buffer (0x04)
                    {
                         0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00         // existing layout-id from AppleALC resources folder        
                    },
                    
                    "apple-layout-id",                       // existing layout-id at AppleHDA resources folder, default is 7
                    Buffer (0x04)
                    {
                         0x02, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00                         
                    },

Uhm...it boots Mojave just fine on my side...

Maybe some of those drivers actually do matter? :)

Well guess it was just a glitch, now its booting. Even with only apfs.efi, AptioMemoryFix.efi and HFS+.efi

 

Yeah, might have been something else... By the way...did anyone try the Messages app yet? Do you see the phone number instead of the name of the person messaging you in the notification pop-up (assuming you've got messages forwarded from your iPhone tot the Mac)? It's fine within the Messaging app itself.I It's just the notification pop-up when receiving a text message that displays the phone number instead of the name. 

Weird thing is...I don't have this issue on my Mac, with the same contacts and everything. But it is on my Hack. :)) Kinda weird, I gotta say.
