macOS Mojave upgrade from macOS High Sierra Hackintosh

macOS Mojave is here for all the Mac users with supported MacBooks and Mac computers. Upgrading a Hackintosh to newer macOS Mojave is as usual not a piece of cake. I’ve been using macOS High Sierra from last year. You can watch the complete Installation here. macOS High Sierra doesn’t have compatibility for Intel UHD 630 Graphics so I was able to get my core i7 8700K working using fake ids and kexts for the graphics. In macOS Mojave, Intel UHD 630 can work without using fake IDs or Intel Injection.

macOS Mojave Upgrade

macOS Mojave can be downloaded from Appstore using your Apple ID.

Download it and open the App macOS Mojave.

Make sure to copy the “EFI Partition” to a flash drive as you may need it for booting the Installation. After the first reboot, sometimes the EFI folder from the SSD is removed. That’s why you need to boot via USB to use its EFI partition for booting up the system. Everything goes buttery smooth from there and macOS is upgraded to macOS Mojave in around 15-20 min. You’ll not lose any files during the upgrade process but it’s better to create a backup of your SSD.

Here is how you can create a bootable USB for macOS Mojave.

General Issues and Troubleshooting after Upgrade

  • Intel UHD 630 graphics acceleration wasn’t working due to injected fake Ids so I’d to change the config file. I was using Intel Graphics Fix Up in macOS High Sierra. macOS Mojave has built-in support for Intel UHD 630 graphics so you don’t need intel graphics fix up now. Delete intel graphics fixup from kext folder. and make sure you have the latest “lilu.kext” and “whatevergreen.kext” in the “kext/Other” folder.
  • You’ll be stuck at loading screen if you use wrong SM Bios. For Intel Core i7 8700K, select iMac 14,2 from the dropdown in SMBios tab.
    • Sky Lake: Select iMac 17,1 or iMac 14,2
    • Haswell: Select iMac 14,2
    • Ivy Bridge: Select iMac 14,2
  • Gigabyte / ASUS Motherboard users Only
    • Highlight Acpi on left column
    • Under fixes check FixShutdown
  • ASUS / ASRock / MSI / Motherboard users Only
    • Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
    • Highlight Boot on left column
    • Under Arguments press the drop down arrow next to darkwake
      1. Select darkwake = 1 if using an ASUS motherboard
      2. Select darkwake = 8 if using an ASROCK or MSI motherboard
    • Save config.plist
  • Magenta Tint on External Display/ Monitor
    • Open a terminal
    • Type Ruby and Drag “patch-edid.rb” next to it.
    • Press enter and this will create a new file in “Home” directory of your computer. Press Shift+Command+H to navigate to that directory.
    • Copy folder and paste in Installation SSD/System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides
    • Reboot your system. It will fix magenta tint.

MacOS High Sierra to Mojave upgrade is also possible instead of clean Installation. All you’ve to do is to download the installer from the Appstore. Download size is around 6GB. Once the Installer is downloaded. Open it and wait for a few minutes. After it restarts, installation continues if the macOS high sierra Installation kext files are there. And if Installation freezes, boot your computer using your USB with the previous installer. All you need is the EFI partition config file and kexts to boot it to continue the Installer. After installation completes, you can boot right into macOS Mojave. Dark mode is there and a lot goodies. Screenshot and screen recording app are also there. Voice memos is also possible in macOS Mojave.

macOS Mojave Installation on PC

Last week, I did some experiments with the newly macOS Mojave. I upgraded my system after downloading the update of macOS Mojave which was around 7GB in size.

macOS High Sierra Hackintosh on Intel Core i7 8700K

New Year, New computer

macOS High Sierra on Intel Core i7 8700K

I decided to upgrade my 4th generation Intel core i7 4790K devil’s canyon to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 8700K for macOS High Sierra Hackintosh. I’ve been using that 4th generation processor for almost 3 years and I wasn’t disappointed with my choice 3 years ago. Intel Core i7 4790K have 4.0 GHz base clock and 4.4 GHz boost Clock, It can be overclocked to 4.8Ghz. It was sufficient for my gaming needs before I started making videos and rendering scenes. 4 cores are somehow outdated if you’re a pro user and want to do multitasking like video editing, 3D modeling, rendering, animation and simulation for engineering projects. I was able to build a Hackintosh out of that 4th generation build with ease and I was using this for all of my video editing tasks. Intel HD 4600 and Nvidia Gtx 970 were more than enough for me while editing videos in 1080P and 4K occasionally.

This year I decided to upgrade to the latest core i7 8700K has more cores than previous generation processor. Also, It can be overclocked to 5.0 Ghz. Intel Core i7 8700K has Intel UHD graphics 630 which is much better in terms of performance. I also have the Ryzen processor but it is not feasible to make a Hackintosh out of it due to unavailability of Intel graphics.

macOS High Sierra Hackintosh Issues and Solutions

As you know there are a lot of hardware configuration out there. So the solution might be different in your case. Although, you can always check forums to find the best Mac compatible hardware. Many users are facing issues while using 1060 in Hackintosh. In my first Hackintosh, I used a GTX 970 with Intel Core i7 4790K. I upgraded this build to macOS High Sierra and it was working fine. No graphics or sound issues. I only switched to 3rd party Wifi Adapter to connect to the internet.

When you plug in the USB and boot from it, you’ll get a black screen. That happens because of your motherboard compatibility. While creating bootable USB you have two options to choose from. You can either select UEFI BOOT MODE or LEGACY BOOT MODE. Whenever you face this issue, try to swap between the boot modes. Also, make sure to change the required settings from Bios. You have to disable VT-d, CFG Lock from Bios. Also, enable support for other OS.

Another issue is getting Stop or Prohibitory sign after loading completes.

You get this sign when you’re installing macOS on your old installation of macOS. I fixed it by formatting the SSD before getting into the installer. By doing this all config files were removed from the SSD.

Sometime you’ll be stuck at loading screen. You’ll either have loading stopped at halfway or sometimes you get a circular loading animation below loading bar and Apple Logo. This issue is due to your GPU. There is another case when you get a black screen after the loading is completed. That is also because of your GPU. In some cases, your system restarts after loading completes.

So how to fix it.

Here is the quick fix. That worked for my hardware configuration.

Disable your Nvidia Graphic Card using Clover boot flags. Inject Nvidia if you haven’t done this before. If you’re using latest clover version there are some other options in graphics menu, check them all and you’ll be able to boot into macOS Installer.

Some of you might be unable to format the partition after getting into macOS, the solution is simple, select the view mode from the top and show all devices. Now format the drive, not the partition.

Another issue is that Multibeast installation fails. You can resolve this by exiting the installer. Mount the EFI partitions using clover configurator and then do post installation using Multibeast.

If your system is not booting properly after reboot and you’re facing one of the already mentioned issues, then your graphics are not enabled properly. Or you have selected wrong SM Bios settings.

If you’re getting no sound from HDMI, you have to run a script to enable HDMI audio. It takes few minutes to install. I’ll put the link in the description.

If you’re having blurry graphics or stuttering, you should install and enable proper Nvidia drivers to run your graphics card at full potential.

If your Graphics memory 0MB in “about this mac” section, then you don’t have proper drivers installed. Or you haven’t enabled Nvidia drivers from clover configurator.

 

macOS High Sierra Hackintosh – MSI Motherboard

macOS High Sierra Installation on PC using Unibeast, multibeast and Clover Configurator

macOS High Sierra hasn’t had a massive interface overhaul like the one Yosemite bought in 2014, and despite the fact that many of the features gained by its bundled apps feel a little like it is playing catch up with iOS, this version of macOS actually has a lot going on behind the scenes.

In High Sierra Apple has replaced the primary file system of MacOS. Apple File System (APFS) is the successor to the old Hierarchical File System (HFS+), which has been around since the beginning of 1998, so it’s pretty ancient.

That’s not the only way that Apple’s switch to APFS will benefit you. When it comes to copying large files the process will be faster. We ran our usual file transfer speed test before and after the update to High Sierra. This involved copying a 4GB file. Before we updated the 4GB file copy took 8.41 seconds. Afterwards it was instantaneous. You will never see a Duplicating file window again.

HEVC stands for high efficiency video codec, and it’s another name for H.265, the successor to H.264. The new codec is necessary because video sizes are now so much larger thanks to 4K and HDR. HEVC compresses these extremely high resolution files so they don’t take up take up as much space (which is good news if you are shooting lots of video in 4K on your iPhone 8 Plus).

A couple of years ago Apple introduced Metal, a framework that bypassed OpenGL and allowed developers to tap in to the computational power of the graphics processor. Metal 2 is the successor to Metal and it will increase GPU performance and gain support for VR.

This is great news for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in VR gaming – but note that your Mac may not be able to take advantage of this as it depends on your processor and your GPU (but it will add support for external GPUs in the future).
