[Guide] Gigabyte GA-Z370N-WIFI + i7 8700K + UHD 630 + Mojave 10.14

47 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

my setup is a bit different from yours:

- Gigabyte z370N

- i5-8600

- Samsung EVO 970

- G.Skill 16GB

- wifi BCM94352Z

 

followed your exact instructions but stuck at booting from USB drive.

When I boot up, I choose USB disk and get the CBM and choose install MAC from USB. I see a white apple logo for about few seconds and then it just reboots.

Enabled verbose boot log, please see attached - i can't figure out nothing from it.

bios f5 settings @Luan Eduardo

bios_set_f5

 

Have tried F5 (not the one you've supplied, original one) and F10 - cannot boot to OS.

F1 is working, but the fan stops working after few minutes and system cpu gets ver hot!!! wtf???

any ideas?

We should probably wait for the new Mac Mini 2018 macOS build as it uses HDMI 2.0 and DP while featuring the exact same desktop coffee lake cpus that we're using.

 

currently downloading 10.14.1 build 18B2107 from apple to see if there is something of interest in there..

Hi everyone, I'm just going to tell you that I'm kind of abandoning this project. The macOS is only starting with the BIOS / EFI in the F1 version, but in this version I have problems with the memory modules that compels me to use F2 up. I tried all Aptio drivers imaginable, but to no success. From now on I will have to accept running macOS in Windows VMware :(

Re: the DP here is how I got mine working on 2 separate instances. I may be helpful to someone.

Went through the install process and all using the htmi, plugged the DP and I got the second display. Took out the hdmi and left with only DP display working.

On boot the DP goes off...but if I wait few seconds till the boot process reaches the login screen turns on again and it works ok.

Hi,

 

I had the exact same issue that you have after using for a few days.

Even my macOS installer was stuck at ---End Randomseed----- too. I thought it was an issue with kexts or any files in driver64UEFI. I even spent 2 days blaming and resetting my BIOS, but I was wrong since the culprit was config.plist

 

I made some changes in the config.plist file generated by Clover EFI Bootloader along with what was recommended in the OP. I don't remember the exact changes since I was just testing it out to make it work somehow.

 

I even updated my BIOS to F10 & it works without any issue.

Anyway, attaching my config.plist. Try replacing it with yours & if any luck it might just work.

This is my new Macmini8,1 config. Missing SMBIOS values are:

  • FirmwareFeatures
  • FirmwareFeaturesMask
  • PlatformFeature
  • BiosVersion

I did add values in SSDT-2-A M I to match the original Macmini8,1 such as

  • graphic-options
  • AAPL,gray-value
  • AAPL,gray-page
  • AAPL,GfxYTile
  • AAPL,ig-platform-id

I also did remove Whatevergreen.kext. BIOS is still F5 (settings are unchanged from my previous post).

 

The original Macmini8,1 was running 10.14.1 (18B75) with ig-platform-id 0x3e9b0007.

Typical of what happens when you loose your USB 2 or 3.

Trying different USB ports sometimes will sometimes kick it back to life, meaning some USB ports may still be working.

You need to make a custom SSDT for your USB ports or customise USBInjectAll.kext

Good luck

Seems like you are using USB 3.0 port during installation, are you? If so, try with a USB 2.0 port.

Sorry I had to give more info. I have Mojave installed already. This is not installation, I'm just booting. There's no usb involved that's why I decided to share.

@TheMaxx32000 Thank you, dude! Thank you very much! Finally I was able to start without getting stuck in the F1 BIOS, I am currently in F10!

 

Now, as I like to learn things, I'm going to extract my original DSDT / SSDT and find out which patches you applied by comparing the .AML files. I like to leave everything documented.

 

I'm just having problems now that my BCM94352Z wireless card and my NVME disk are not recognizing it, but I'll fix later. That is not a big problem.

 

Thank you, again.

If you are using same SMBIOS as me then the problem is with de AMD graphic injection.

With that I can not help.

I never have a luck with discrete card. I'll suggest you try without the card.

Hi @Luan Eduardo

 

please find my clover folder attached – I set up everything to use as little patching as possible.

 

DP and secondary eth work (needs modded FakePCIID_Intel_GbX.kext + SmallTreeIntel82576.kext) – running in dual-4k@60hz over here.

 

Also added ig-platform-id through ssdt-2 and some cosmetics (built-ins, device names etc).

 

Also all USB ports, including the front USB3.0 ones, work as expected.

 

Credits to @MaLd0n for the initial patched dsdt-version.

Did you ever figure out if you still need whatevergreen and FakePCIID_Intel_GbX.kext for the display port to work? Also, how is the Mac Mini 8,1 SMBIOS vs the iMac 18,1?

      Hello, insanely kind people! 
      I had full working Speedstep on my system with El Capitan, but after installing Mojave i cant make it working again!
      Help me please. Actually system is working only with NullCPUPowerManagement.kext. As soon as i remove it from Extensions directory i've got kernel panic at the boot.
      I tried to put SSDT.aml from my previous ElCapitan clover, tried to make new by different utilities, but still no luck.

      My system is:
      Pentium G3258
      Asus Z97-K USB 3.1
      Nvidia GTX 670


      i''m attaching my new clover.plist of Mojave and old El Capitan one, which makes Speedstep fully working and overclocking my little Pentium from 3.2 to 4.5GHz. Now i see huge speed loss without SpeedStep on Mojave  Please help, anybody! Also im attaching my working SSDT.aml from El Capitan.
      El Capitan SSDT.aml
      El Capitan config.plist
      Mojave config.plist

      Hi, is Qualcomm Atheros AR956x compatible with MacOS Mojave 10.14.3?
    • By SIGNALSOUT
      Hello,
      I don't have access to another Mac, so I downloaded the following files:
       
      InstallESDDmg.pkg
      InstallAssistantAuto.dmg
      RecoveryHDMetaDmg.pkg
       
      Build is 10.14.3
       
      These were direct downloads from Apple Servers. If I extract them all I can build a Install macOS Mojave.app from them. I have tried various things in order to get the Mojave Patcher to accept the .app but I cannot get it to boot. The USB key it creates doesn't look proper as some of the files end up on the root of the disk, such as Base. and when it's finished flashing it changes the usb key's name to OS X Base.
       
      Could someone be of assistance and provide me with a tree print out of the file structure for Install macOS Mojave.app please?
      Thank you,
      Nate
