I do not have a LGA775 socket components to test it, but you have to review your config.plist and check your DSDT or graphics card, it might be a trick for that! If people not only one user, but users confirmed that it work, then you just have to check or ask for a config.plist that already working! 

 

It's only one user Ecefer post it work without anything, no more evidence, that's why I'm not sure it's really work or not.

Not sure if there's difference between real mac and hackintosh Pc on this case. This reminds me when got same issue installing Sierra some years back on my MBP2009 with Core2Duo. It got succeeded with dosdude1 patcher, but no luck using it on pc with similar cpu. Later on, after 10.12 finally released, It worked well with same config.

Have you did this to bypass compatibility check, like dear fusion71au said?

You can clean install Mojave beta on an HFS partition with a patched OSInstall.mpkg (this starts core.pkg installation) ---> bypasses compatibility checks.  See post#258 in macrumors unsupported macs thread, credit to @foxlet.

 

After the package installer completes, copy boot.efi (from "Misc Files.zip" attachment or extract yourself from BaseSystem.dmg with Pacifist) to /S/L/CoreServices of the Mojave volume, and copy SeedEnrollment.plist file into the /Users/Shared folder with the "." prefix so it becomes a hidden system file eg if SeedEnrollment.plist is in your ~/Downloads folder, use the terminal command


cp ~/Downloads/SeedEnrollment.plist /Volumes/Mojave/Users/Shared/.SeedEnrollment.plist

Good Luck :)

The compatibility check is only for installation. Compatibility is not a issue.

 

I can boot to installation screen, and install Mojave as GPT+APFS, or GPT+HFS+J, or MBR+HFS+J successful. (will not convert to APFS.:))

My problem is,

After installation finished, it can not boot into the installed Mojave system with all the three types above.

I think, it's E8400 without SSE4.2 issue.

 

I can't figure out why Ecefer said it works with E7500? I already ask for his config.plist, not reply yet.

I think we need more info. how Ecefer made it worked?

Yep, also you can check at AppleLife.ru, maybe you'll find someone posted a solution!

 

I do not remember where i've seen the screenshot where the verbose hangs from the installed drive, can you post it again?

It finally should end up with something like that:

The thing going bad in he's HDEF patch is merging apple-layout-id with alc-layout-id, but instead of doing that he only need to put alc-layout-id.

With the AppleALC I attached on my previous post, it works without any changes except the boot arguments.

The error come from "El Capitan" volume.

You have more than one /Volumes/XXXXX/.IAProductInfo

You should remove all other /Volumes/XXXXX/.IAProductInfo, keep only the external USB drive with /Volumes/USB/.IAProductInfo and /Volumes/USB/macOS Install Data/ 

use the terminal commands to view and remove /Volumes/El Capitan/.IAProductInfo and /Volumes/El Capitan/OS X Install Data/

and you need to boot the external USB drive with /Volumes/USB/macOS Install Data/ to finish installation.

 

 

Thank you very much, this did it! I had the file in an old OS installation...so I deleted it  I was able to install Mojave after that and it's working great.

 

There's one weird thing tho... I installed it in an external USB hard drive... in one occasion I  rebooted the machine and the Mojave partition was gone... not sure if there's a problem with APFS... I had to reinstall the OS.

 

Cheers,

Dragster.

Yes, but not for all codecs for sure, i've tried all the things, so here's the conclusion for my codec to work:

1- use only VoodooHDA, so the audio just work fine, but Guitar Rig no.

2- use AppleALC from high sierra just work fine

3- use the last AppleALC from @arsradu post, using alc-layout-id in DSDT and putting -alcbeta -lilubeta

But from time to time when i boot using AppleALC all versions, i get audio grayed, so i have to shutdown the laptop, remove the battery, power on it, and work again for a while!

Only Sierra 10.12+ support APFS to view it.

El Capitan didn't support APFS, can't see it, unless you install Mojave as HFS+J with MBR patch method (will not convert HFS+j to APFS).

I can't, no verbose hangs, it boot system to gray screen and mouse cursor, then reboot itself.

I think,maybe some kexts or frameworks cause the reboot issue.

 

I may try to remove some kexts to test it when i have free time.

I may try to remove some SLE, LE kexts to test it.

Try to boot on verbose to be able to see what caused the panic to reboot

Already do it, boot with verbose,

no verbose hangs, it boot system to gray screen and mouse cursor, then reboot itself.

 

As applelife.ru mentioned, Only processors with SSE4,2 are supported.

I’m sure it needs some testing, i see now if the verbose passed then it should work!
There’s maybe a kext that cause the crash, and that gray screen need a trick.
Sound like Mojave know at final step that the hardware isn’t supported then it crashes, can you post config.plist?

that is not my kext i just compiled it for sierra or hs i forgot its been a while.... it is dr.hurts code. the finger pressure issue should be able to be adjusted in the trackpad info plist file. you have to edit the "finger-z" value to your liking.

Yeah, also....about the previous issue with Quick Look/Preview....if you upgrade from High Sierra to Mojave, without making a clean install, chances are you're not gonna see this issue. I actually had Mojave installed on another HDD, as an upgrade to High Sierra, and I didn't have this issue. Clean -reinstall, and the issue re-appeared. So...I'm guessing some data was kept from High Sierra. 

Also, I checked using my iGPU and indeed, it does not occur. So it's only eGPUs...and probably only after clean installs.

 

I did a clean install and i have it now if i switch to dark-mod, some applications just crashes on it, while not in the defaults mod. Sounds like this dark-mod is a little bit buggy!

Naaaaa, this is the buggy dark-mod, switch to the other one and you'll be more comfortable, but it will still have less bugs on it, and less apps crashes :(

i haven't experienced any crash yet, some misbehavior yes... clicking the address bar on chrome/chromium reloads page, hwsensors tells me sometimes that my cpu is running at 2147.48thz, actually really stable for such an early beta, even more stable than windows 10!

Do you have the icons problem on the normal mod?

Or just wait for kexts update maybe, but i think you have too much, it could be Preview problem like @arsradu said in the previous posts?
