My E8400 works fine with 10.13.6, but failed with Mojave.

I didn't tell you to give up E8400 with Mojave, I just show you my test result, and hope you can success with Mojave.

If you success, my E8400 will come to alive again, I think.

 

I think E8400 work fine with kernel, maybe some framework or kext issue cause the problem.

 

Good luck to you!:thumbsup_anim::thumbsup_anim:

Thanks man :) Good luck to you too on getting Mojave to boot successfully on your E8400 ;)

I just tried Enoch r2908 to boot post / pre-installed 10.14 Beta 1 on my mach (sig). Strange is, I get black screen with signal. Both kozlek's and slice's FakeSMC are well loaded, nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=Yes do nothing. Ha haa, let's try Beta 2 then..

What DID you try?

 

Copy-pasting an EFI most likely won't solve your problem. Maybe post your Clover folder to take a look? This way you can also learn a thing or two? :)

The good news is that the direct dl link (post #1) still works fine, so you can download full Beta 2 installer.  :yes:

 

The bad news, they didn't add more graphics kexts especially these ones for old configs. Sad.  :hammer:

 

I still can not understand (except force new macs buying) the fact that an old configuration no longer works under Mojave while it still works perfectly under 10.13.6  :thumbsdown_anim:

Guys, the ones of you having issues opening certain photos with the first Beta, do you still have that issue? Cause I do. I was hoping Apple would fix it. But...well, they didn't seem to. And it's kind of annoying.

 

Apparently it doesn't occur with HEIC files (live photos) and screenshots taken on the Mac. It does with screenshots received on iMessage for example and regular camera photos. Cannot be opened either with Quick Look (endless loop) or Preview app (app becomes unresponsive).

Well I guess apple is going to completely ditch the OpenCL and replace it with Metal and that's why all the AMD GPU generations prior to 7000 series are not supported anymore and yes they want to sell more Macs!!!

 

And another good news is that the transparency issue is fixed on my R9 270X GPU as well :D

As I said... Post your Clover folder so we can see where you're at. :)

Sound is a common problem and considering your motherboard, you MIGHT be able to get sound from it using AppleALC & Lilu kexts (we'll talk about that when the time comes).

 

Video acceleration is also common issue and known issue, since there is no Nvidia driver for Mojave yet.

 

Your motherboard is fantastic. Which is to say you're gonna love making a hackintosh out of it. And when I say "love", I mean pull your hair not knowing what the hell to do to get it to work. :) But otherwise, it's a pretty damn awesome motherboard.

 

It's gonna be a challenge to make it work.

Send me a PM, if you want. So we don't spam everyone on the forum.

I have no problem with that - But they could keep the support for old GPU/CPU and ONLY allow new features for NEW GPU/CPU.

 

But truly speaking... in the current Mojave state, could you really agree that it needs CPU SSE 4,2 or GPU > 7000 series as minimum recommendation??? Naaaaah.  :thumbsdown_anim:

I don't seem to have that issue. I need to double check some of my old photos to make sure.

Thanks! Did you have this issue before? Cause it's important that we test the same photos, before and after the update. Otherwise, results might differ. Especially since this is a weird issue, and seems to be dependent on the file itself...

You are correct and I totally agree with you about supporting older Macs. BUT we are talking about Apple! They do whatever they want whenever they want! they don't really care about the end-user they just care about the sales. I know for a fact that all the discontinued (or better to say unsupported) Macs are still capable for professional use. But "Hey! who cares we are building a "Campus" and we neeeeeeed money, a lot of it so let's force people to buy new Macs so we can make more profit! " :dev:

If I remember correctly I came across this issue on one of the High Sierra beta's but I don't remember which version was it and it got fixed in the next release.

 

About testing the same photos how you propose we do that?

No. At some point people need to suck it up and upgrade. AMD 7000 series is almost 7 years old.

I mean...we test each one of us individually, the same photos. :)) Not...sharing photos. Although that could work, too, I guess, with non private photos.

 

For example the wallpaper below cannot be opened on my hack.

IMHO there is a big difference between forcing someone to do something or they doing it by choice.

However technology almost forces people to upgrade but still I'd rather to have a choice rather than being forced to do it.

It burns through more development resources than people realize to try and continually support legacy hardware, and delays rollouts of newer features.

 

It's nice to not have to upgrade every couple years (like we used to). But nowadays people get lazy and self-entitled thinking they deserve to be able to run modern software on antiques.
