    Endless battles with EFI have me battered

    What ACPI patching have you done? If you feel you have messed up your installaiton maybe you should try a clean install of Mojave, after you have made a backup of your current booting macOS drive. An old laptop drive is very handy for creating a backup of your macOS drive. I use Carbon Copy...

    Endless battles with EFI have me battered

    The applicaitons opening on startup is common way for Apple System to boot. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong. When you close an application using the X icon in the top left corner, it doesn't actually close the app. You need to right-click on the app icon in the Dock and select 'Quit'...

    Post a copy of your CLOVER folder, your whole CLOVER folder as you have amended to suit your system. So we can see what you are using to boot your system.

    [SOLVED]Catalina Install stuck at apfs_module_start

    Reading around the other hackintosh sites this seems to be a common issue. The fix pre-installation, alledgedly is to do the following: USe a new version of Clover, Clover_v2.5k_r5098 or newer. Make sure you have AptioMemoryFix.efi installed to /CLOVER/drivers/UEFI Add SSDT-EC, SSDTPNLF and...

    Dell inspiron 5300 series

    I have looked around for an audio fix for you. I found one that should work with your Realtek ALC225 codec in macOS High Sierra 10.13.6. You need to do the following: Delete AppleALC and the current version of VoodooHDA from /Library/Extensions folder Install AppleHDADisabler.kext and the...

    Install the USB kext mXHCD to /Library/Extensions folder, repair permissions and rebuild the kernel cache. So it is added to the cache. i will have a look at the other issues on Wednesday.

    Black screen - cannot boot into installer - GTX 1070 High Sierra

    Check you have the nv_disable=1 boot argument in your config.plist. You could try installing macOS with the Nvidia card removed. Just using the IGPU.

    Will these parts work for Hackintosh Build?

    No they are not ideal. There are two main issues: An AMD CPU will not run macOS as well as an Intel CPU. As Apple have not as yet issued an iMac, MBP or other Apple system containing an AMD CPU. Second the Nvidia GPU you have selected will never work in macOS. Apple have switched to AMD...

    GA-Z270X-DESIGNARE for Pro Tools 12

    Unfortunately you can't mount the EFI folder in Safe Mode but you can make some changes to reverse the changes I made. Navigate to your EFI backup folder on the root of your Hackintosh HD. Make a copy of one of the most recent backups of your CLOVER folder. Copy it to the 'Clover' USB. Make...

    Try this: Boot your normal drive. While on the Clover boot screen, highlight your Hackintosh HD icon. press the spacebar and select 'Safe Mode' -x and boot the system. Dinner has just been called, back in 15 minutes.

    From the middle image I would say you need to select the 'UEFI: SanDisk, Partition 1' entry. Assuming that is your USB with the new Clover installation only.

    Install Mojave on a Dell Optiplex 3020

    No, you don't have to reformat the drive. You just need to remove the EFI folder and all its contents from the drive. This will clear CLOVER from the USB. You need to check that there isn't an EFI folder on the Root of the USB, next to the Install Mojave icon, as well as in the EFI partiton...

    Unsupported CPU Mojave install

    That error is usually related to the use of the wrong Aptio EFI driver. There are four main drivers you can use when booting your Hack. The one I provided in the CLOVER folder is AptioMemoryFix.efi. You can remove this driver from your /CLOVER/drivers/UEFI folder and replace it with one of...

    EFI - Check

    Boot in Verbose Mode, i.e. add the -v boot argument and take a picture of the screen where the system stops, i.e. before the screen turns black. Provide a copy of the photo you took, so I can see what caused the Kernel Panic.

    "This Device cannot be transferred error", due to Serial Number?

    Have you tried De-Activating your Hack from within iTunes and after a reboot re-Activating the iTunes. Do you know if when you created your config.plist if the following happened: Serial Number was checked with EveryMac, to see if the number is from the correct series of iMac or mac mini for...

    [SOLVED]Catalina Install stuck at apfs_module_start

    I think that KP is related to the Graphics. IGPU and PEG0. I have changed the config.plist attached. By removing most GPU references, including: Disabling rename patches, Removing ig-platform-id, Set Inject Intel=false, Set Fake ID IntelGFX=0x12345678, Retained nv_disable=1 boot argument...

    [SOLVED]Catalina Install stuck at apfs_module_start

    Try the CLOVER folder attached. I have not changed a lot. I have removed a few SSDT's as they may have been causing the ACPI kernel panic. Plus made a few minor adjustments to the config.plist. So I need you to replace and use the Whole folder, not just the config.plist. See if this...
