My suggestion is use the single phase install-method as 10.12 via @dosdude1's macOS Mojave patcher or common single-phase MBR-Manual-Method.

It will work for you.

 

It worked (as I also presumed). Although I've always preferred createinstallmedia method, I wasn't able to install Mojave using this method. I wonder what have I missed.

@crazybirdy I get some errors when running the script. I can't find a way to put the script file directly on the root of the USB, so I put it in the installer partition.

Clover boot -s to single user mode to apfs system /macOS.

 

PS: your cp command is wrong. Need copy again.

Try to rename "Image Volume" to single name.

or add \ as "Image\ Volume" when you use cp.

 

@ANONIMNIQ

Try this new script, it should work on mac installer, needn't boot to apfs partition.

 

 

Q5-mojave2core/mojave2core

 

windows:

copy to mac installer/mojave2core

 

clover:

boot to mac installer

 

Run Terminal:

cp /mojave2core /Volumes/1014name/usr/bin/mojave2core

chmod +x /Volumes/1014name/usr/bin/mojave2core

/Volumes/1014name/usr/bin/mojave2core

 

done. 

 

1014name is your 10.14 volume name.

You want to install to a mobile hard disk.

It could be USB issue, if you install to normal hard disk, it should work, I think.

I've also tried to install it in the HDD, the same error came up. I've downloaded 10.14 multiple times (in case the download may be broken), nothing changes. The most astonishing thing is that: it doesn't convert the installation partition to APFS (I've also tried installing in an APFS partition, which didn't work either).

Not really sure, but.. have you manually updated newer Platform Datas on SMBios section of config.plist? Or, try using diff. SMBios version.

No, I didn't. But MBP14,1 (which I've been using) should've worked.

Nah, try updating them.. Latest @mackie's Clover Configurator.app may help? As well as provided BootROM version etc there.

Okay, let's see if it works (though I don't think it'll change anything anyway).

Any News about NVIDIA and Mojave ? I don't want to buy a new GPU, because my GTX 980 is still good enough for anything I do …

We'll have to wait for the final version of Mojave and the appropriate web drive! It's supposed to work fine!

Why did I know this Answer ? It was good to see, that NVIDIA published a lot of Web Drivers for El Capitan and Sierra during the Beta, but since High Sierra it's silent. And we have to wait and pray for a Web Driver. Currently there's only one Reason for NVIDIA to update their Web Drivers : Some People could buy a NVIDIA Graphics Card for their MacPro4,1 and MacPro5,1. I don't think NVIDIA cares about Hackintosh, so the possible Users of a new Web Driver are only a few People :unsure:

Not especially a few people - Apple introduced eGPUS system to its OS and there still some Macs with nVidia GPUs that support macOS Mojave. There's no reason to not release a beta webdriver version, if not Optimus pride.

Yeah I forgot the eGPUs. But there's one Difference between the Macs coming with a NVIDIA-GPU and the ones with a later bought NVIDIA-GPU, so Apple has the Extensions included for all GTX 600 and GTX 700 Models ( except the GTX 750, which is the first Version of Maxwell ), so later Models need the Web Driver. I've seen so many People here with a GTX 6xx, but who has a GTX 9xx or a GTX 10xx ? These are only a few Peoples, so hopefully NVIDIA will build more eGPUs for having an Argument to create Web Drivers ( for GTX 750, 9xx and 10xx ) in the Future. Sorry, that I'm so pessimistic, but I want to have Mojave and haven't / wouldn't have the Money to buy a new GPU …

Some workarrounds about weird tinted AppleMenu if using LightMode on non-metal capable graphics:

This is what I get when switching from Dark to Light Mode appearance under macOS Mojave 10.14 Beta 7.

Not sure why it shows me "Unable to load Info.plist exceptions (eGPUOverrides)", since my laptop only has a single Nvidia GF119 graphics. -_- and, with no eGPU for sure. Strange.

I have heavy kernel_task activity with this beta, Spotlight realtime indexing, auto storage cleanup, autobackup, spindump, photoanalyze services, crashreporter.. all are shown on Activity Monitor eating my 4+GB RAM, as well as Disk keeps spinning everytime. Though I could unload these services, but Beta 7 is still worse with big WindowServer RAM consumption, at least.. compared to prev. Beta's -_-

 

#EDIT: And there's no different between APFS or HFS+ on my 5400rpm mechanical HDD, Beta 6 is still better though.

What the {censored}! I've tried 5 or more different times through different methods, through Olarila and several sites and I can not install Mojave on my Skylake 6 Gen Laptop... After instalation begins, it always reboot with a KP... :(

What is the verbose output from setting the following Clover boot options (-v keepsyms=1 debug=0x100, keep symbols + no reboot on panic)?  Sometimes old versions of lilu or its plugin kexts can ---> kp during Mojave install, so make sure you have the latest versions (maybe try temporarily blocking them through Clover menu).

 

Also consider using a single phase installer eg @dosdude1's macOS Mojave Patcher, or @crazybirdy MbrEasyInstallerMaker.  These are based on the old "BaseSystem.dmg restore" method ---> can easily manipulate/rebuild the installer's prelinked kernel (or replace prelinkedkernel with known working one from High Sierra).

do we need a new CSR active config to allow to reset nvram? sudo -nvram -c is not working neither is booting with -s and running nvram -c or the clover nvram wipe in clover GUI by pressing F11

Hi fusion71,

Thanks for the tips, but regardless of which method I use, the upgrade/installation process starts well! But after the first reboot, it always ends with this KP... yes of course, I have the last Clover! Don't know... :cry:

Thank you friends! But with or without Lilu and nvram resets, the result was the same KP! It must be something else! It's strange, because my Skylake system has native support and until 13.6 always worked perfectly and without need of tricks... I leave here my EFI, if anyone wants to take a look...
