Help installing Mojave on Xeon W-2175 and Asus WS C422 mobo

Hi all again.

New problems for my rig. Any help appreciated from the forum.

Can't install new nor update my old Mojave Beta 4 (18A336e) installation with Mojave Beta 6 or newly released Beta 7.

Something in the kernel changed in the last version of Mojave Beta 6 (build 18A353d). Both kernel patches "xcpm_program_msrs (c) Pike R. Alpha and  "xcpm_pkg_scope_msrs © Pike R. Alpha" wich previously worked with HighSierra respectively earlier builds of Mojave seems now to be obsolete. Now once again stuck at "end random seed +++++++++++++++++++++". 

Tried all different combination with AptioMemoryfix, OSXAptioFixDrv and OsxAptioFix2 and 3Drv. Tried with FakeCPUID.kext in all sorts of combination with and without kernelPM checked. 

I'm out of energy and ideas.

 

Happy if somebody could try to help me out.

Problem solved.

 

 New kernel patch  "_xcpm_pkg_scope_msrs"  from PMhart saved my day.

31 d2 e8 ae fc ff ff -> 31 d2 90 90 90 90 90

 

Credit to @fabiosun for leading me on the right way.

Happy day's are here again:hysterical:

 

Cheers.

For the first time with this rig I can get rid of FakeCPUID in Clover thanks to my saver @fabiosun with this  (only) kernel patch:

 89D804C4 3C227722 -> 89D804C1 3C227722   xcpm_bootstrap © Pike R. Alpha

This is idle with only bootstrap patch:

89D804C4 3C227722 -> 89D804C1 3C227722   xcpm_bootstrap © Pike R. Alpha

and WITHOUT FakeCPUID.

This is idle with kernel patch: _xcpm_pkg_scope_msrs_PMhart

31 d2 e8 ae fc ff ff -> 31 d2 90 90 90 90 90"

and WITH FakeCPUID.

Hi again @obus.

Hi all. 

 

Now I switched to Asus WS C422 Pro/SE with Xeon W-2123.
As for the start, the system works fine. I used your config.plist from the topic above, thank you all.

With other config files it crashed into a panic at +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++, probably CPU PM.

 

I'm still sorry for my english

But HWMonitor don't see any coolers. Also QFan not available in BIOS but the F6 key is still in Hot Keys list

Are you using Fake CPUID and/or kernelpatch?

Yes. Use both. However, I do not use PluginType Clover fix. For CPU Info in About This Mac I use 0x0501 CPU Type (is for 4 core Xeon and cosmetics only)

Try this FakeSMC.kext in Contents/Plugins there are LPCSensors.kext, GPUSensors.kext, CPUSensors.kext and ACPISensors.kext

Put it in Clover/kexts/Other

FakeSMC.kext.zip

Thank you @Loloflat6, I will try...

:no:Your FakeSMC is the same version that I currently use, including Plugins.

Utilities in windows also do not see the fans. So this is not the fault of HWMonitor or macOS. This is probably the server specificity of the motherboard. May be @obus knows more about it...

It's OK... Now we need help from the server administrator:).

Using iStat for the moment and have no attached fans at all because of my systems water-cooling.

Try with this!

VirtualSMC.zip

If no fan are attached, see picture below. Later I'll explain more...

 

VirtualSMC v1.0 already tried. It works but capabilities are limited. Waiting for new versions.

We need to get rid of Fake CPUID and the kernel patch we use today. @fabiosun  and I have tried different ways with no avail.

Check out this site: https://www.macos86.it/viewtopic.php?f=23&p=12086#p12086

Ok, then postpone IPMI - BCM question to better times.

 

And after the release of Mojave, we will return to the CPU.

 

And thanks for the link.

Short report for beta 11 - any changes for me. Still needed FakeCPUID and  _xcpm_pkg_scope_msrs_PMhart for properly boot.

CPU Performance not tested yet

Small note - system properly boot also with Kabylake H FakeCPUID 0x0906E9.
CPU PM and performance not tested after this.

 

 

Dear @fabiosun . Sorry that offended your professional dignity with my wrong conclusion about MSR 0xE2. Sorry...
