[Guide][Success] Upgrading Hight Sierra to mojave, H55MS2, AMD RX460, i5 750, HDD, intel 5 series

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After a long run, I successfully upgraded High Sierra to mojave 10.14 on an intel 5 series chipset MotherBoard.

 

MotherBoard: H55ms2

RAM: 6GB

GPU1: Saphire AMD RX 460

GPU2: Nvidia 8400GS

Storage: 500 GB HDD WD Green.

 

The requirement:

1) macOS pre mojave.

2) macOS mojave installer from Apple store.

3) Empty partition or USB to upgrade from.

4) Un-mout all unused dmgs.

5) GPT/GUID HDD.

 

HOWOT:

1) Prepare an empty partition or USB with at least 6 GB.

2) Format the partition or USB with GUID partition table and HFS+ partition with a name BootablePartition.

3) Go to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app.

4) Show Package Contents.

5) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find BaseSystem.dmg.

6) Double click on BaseSystem.dmg to mount.

7) From Disk Utilty click on your partition or the USB that you prepared from number (2).

8) Click on restore, and chose OS X Base System (BaseSystem.dmg image), then restore it to that partition or USB.

9) After restoring rename the partition back to BootablePartition.

9) Run this command:

rm -rfv /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages

10) Create a new folder instead of the broken link and name it Packages, run this command:

mkdir -v /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages

11) Go back to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app and repeat number 2.

12) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find InstallESD.dmg.

13) Mount InstallESD.dmg.

14) Run this command:

cp -v /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages/

15) Download the latest clover from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/

16) Install clover on your USB BootablePartition or in a different USB to boot from it. delete all your CLOVER/kext/10.xx and keep others, make sure you don't have any extra kext rather than FakeSMC.kext in the other folder.

in my case I used FakeSMC.kext and my lan kext RealtekRTL8111.kext.

17) known Problems in my build: 

If I updated directly from the apple store the installer in clover will boot with a cross circle sign.

The FIX is to add this to Clover KextToPatch Thanks to @sunKi http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327488-macos-high-sierra-final-release-is-out-17a365/page-10?do=findComment&comment=2505086 this fix is still working for me in mojave.

18) make sure you have apfs.efi copy it from /Volumes/BootablePartition/usr/standalone/i386/apfs.efi to your EFI/CLOVER/drivers64/ and EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/.

19) SMBIOS mac model that I use is iMac13,2.

20) Go to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app click on it and chose to install to your macOS Mojave partition.

21) Reboot.

22) From clover chose BootablePartion.

23) If everything is okie BootablePartition will boot to install macOS mojave, wait wait wait till it finish it might take to 1 hour just wait it will reach the auto reboot soon :D .

24) Boot to your old macOS Hight Sierra that will be your mojave partition now and enjoy.

 

POST Install:

1) audio: 

a) Download Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext or build them from source (which I did).

b) place them in your /EFI/CLOVER/kext/others/

c) add your audio layout in clover/Devices dict options in my case it's ALC888B which has the layout of 1:

<key>Audio</key>
		<dict>
			<key>Inject</key>
			<string>1</string>
		</dict>

d) I had to add beta args to clover/Boot dict, argument (-lilubeta -alcbeta):
 

<key>Arguments</key>
		<string>-lilubeta -alcbeta</string>

2) Add number 14 KextsToPath array to your clover as well.


Anything else is working for me I didn't need any extra clover kext so far, I tried whatevergreen.kext to fire up my rx 460 without the helper card but no success, So I am just sticking with booting from Nvidia as a first GPU from my motherboard configuration then swap the cables after choosing my macOS partion from clover.

 

After upgrading my HFS+ High Sierra partition converted to APFS, no know problem so far.


Happy build and more info about the partitioning method with a more detailed instructions in this post that I used to update my Sierra to High Sierra

 

Special thanks to crazybirdy, sunKi and all of you out there that make this happens.

Hi, a question before trying this.

 

3) Go to /Application/Install macOS High Sierra.app? Shouldn't it be Install macOs Mojave?

Yes, just a typo. I updated it.

How you are getting your speed step working on 13,2 smbios?

On my similar setup on sierra using your smbios always have the cpu stuck at minimum freq (using a gigabyte h55m-usb3 and a xeon x3440 that's like 750 a lynnfield gen cpu)

      Update: On October 24, 2020, using clover to solve the macOS11 beta10 boot problem, you can now enjoy macOS11beta10, and the compatibility of subsequent versions is not guaranteed.
      HIDPI uses a modified version. You can directly execute the hidpi script to get a better experience. If you lose the repair, it is not within the scope of my support.
      Support upgrades without destroying the integrity of the original image.
      There seems to be a problem with the shortcut keys. If you can help solve it, thank you for your contribution.
       
      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:

      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro.
