@PMheart,

 

Thanks for the prompt reply and fix, it works fine.

It was HP lapic problem  itself as I was able to proceed with cpus=1 and my bus ratio.

 

And yes, it fixes the boot kernel panic and I can proceed further. Lapic kernel panic corrected.

 

But there seems to now new problems for us with older non metal cards and I now boot to a black screen

May be NDRVshim fixes by dos dude need work now with this kernel.

 

Thanks and regards

Glad to hear that it works. Great!

 

Regarding Metal - sorry I am not familiar with it and may not be able to help... :(

Which older, Tesla? Mine is also old: Fermi, either non-Metal capable graphics.

But, what diff. is Apple still providing NVDAGF*.kext on SLE.

Wait, "blackscreen"..? Fully or with logs appear?

Gt320m tesla, Actually can boot only with safe mode, in normal boot I reach to a point where it says io console something and then turns to blackscreen and cannot reach the desktop.

Interesting..!!!

This is just workarround, can't guarantee it'll work on yours (we have diff. GPU gen #btw):

Place this "CoreDisplay" binary on:

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreDisplay.framework/Versions/A

// ..and don't forget to make a backup, first. (This is from 10.14.3 Build 18D42 #FYi)

 

ouch, *.framework.. you need to rebuild kernelcache, prelinkedkernel & for sure.. dyld:

sudo rm -f /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache && sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / && sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force
 

Thanks Apple, no support for Newer NVIDIA (Maxwell++) GPU's under 10.14.x, and now the older just killed too #LoL.. (Could be Beta bugs though, who known w/o any Release changelog?)

Seems like it failed loading windowserver, or something else, IDK.. harder part. LoginUI is running on top of Metal, uggh.. No idea. #FYi I never able to reach LoginUI since 10.14 Dev Beta 2 (18A391) w/o rolling back CoreDisplay binary from Beta 1, till date.

Going for one fresh install attempt and if no dice then will wait it out till others figure it out.

Was using the transparency patches as well, may be they messed things up.

I can confirm it, there is a black screen on non-metal graphic card. I run Mojave on old ATI Radeon 4850 and till 10.14.3 all run well. Could you tell if the fresh install changed anything?

No , same thing with a fresh install.

Replaced, windows server, core display and system kernel from 10.14.3. Does not  reach desktop.

This is what it sits at:

ioconsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0.

 

Looked it up and found that it is related to internal gpu or graphics related, how they are read and actuated, so yes something in the update has borked the dosdude patch. Will require help from people who are more advanced users or developers.

There's minor issue with "Stocks.app" icon under 10.14.4 Beta 1; it' s not shown properly. If you navigate to /Applications/Stocks.app/Contents/Resources/ you'll realize that now it uses Assets.car instead of AppIcon_macOS.icns. Probably, will be implemented on next 10.14.4 release for all app's icons (could be dev mistake, though).

Just tested booting into 10.14.4 beta/18E174f macOS Base System on my legacy machines (waiting to download full installer with 10.14.4 official release).

 

On my legacy Dell laptop (Geforce 8600M GT/tesla) using MBP7,1 SMBIOS and -no_compat_check boot flag, had same error as @macq - hang on message ioconsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 after DSMOS arrives.  Note I have full install of 10.14.3 on this system working OK with High Sierra tesla graphics kexts.

  • Changing to 10.14.3 prelinked kernel in /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels ---> same system hang message ie swapping to PLK with 10.14.3 graphics kexts doesn't help in my case
  • Changing to MacPro5,1 SMBIOS and inject NVidia to no in config.plist ---> boots OK to Recovery/Installer environment with VESA graphics

 

Maybe with this latest beta, more stringent checking of systems with deprecated SMBIOS + non metal graphics?  
MacPro5,1 SMBIOS also works booting 10.14.4 beta/18E174f macOS Base System on my legacy desktop (Desktop 2 in signature with ATI HD5770) with VESA graphics.

If you got this crash report on /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports, it seems like a bad sign; it has been fixed by rolling back CoreDisplay binary from prev. build (on my case, which is another GPU model). What diff.; even my Fermi is also non-Metal capable one.. Apple still provide NVDAGF*.kext. Yeah right, I hope.. it was just Apple bug (as well with other UI mistakes on 18E174f).

Do you still have 10.14.4 Beta 1 installed? How about using CoreGraphics binary from 10.14.3?

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreGraphics.framework/Versions/A/CoreGraphics

And does "IODisplayWrangler" (or GPUWrangler) appear when stuck on blackscreen?

No, gone back to 10.14.3, works smooth. Can now only try on weekend.

 

"IODisplayWrangler" (or GPUWrangler) does not appear.

Hi,

 

Could you please try if this new one works? (Mostly thanks to @vit9696)

 

EDIT: No, wrong patch, see https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337357-pre-release-macos-mojave-10144/?do=findComment&amp;comment=2662394 for the correct one.

Glad to hear that, thanks to @vit9696 again!

Now this patch is much more decent (not like the previous one that makes your CPU running at maximum all the time, which might eventually even burn it...), and is much less OS independent (we won't have to find a new patch for each version)!

Thanks @PMheart@vit9696

Short patched work all version.But Performance low.This decent patch good for CPU.

Thank you for your explanation.

Well, if you want the *old way* (basically an equivalent of the old, long patch) to *somehow improve the performance*, here you go:

for a better one.

Update to 14.4 beta 1 on desktop, Haswell-E with Nvidia, everything ok as always, with old Web Drivers! But on the Skylake laptop, something has changed and again, I think it has to do with the Intel 520 iGPU...
