    AG_Cipher - I'm wondering if you find overclocking to be worth it? I'm wondering if the boost is worth it, or if I should just get the speed stepping working.

    Other than Apple kexts, in S/L/E I have: GenericUSBXHCI.kext Then a bunch of IOUSB kexts which I'm guessing might be relevant?: IOUSBAttachedSCSI.kext IOUSBFamily.kext IOUSBHostFamily.kext IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext IOUSBMassStorageDriver.kext In L/E, the only clearly usb kexts have to do...

    Excellent info and advice. I'm going to try this later in the week on one of the clones. I'll check on the USB ports. I'm assuming that some part of the Sierra setup worked with Mojave. Funny, as it didn't (and still doesn't) work with Sierra. I tried to get the ports working, but had little...

    One other interesting thing with my Mojave Upgrade: The front panel USB 3.0 ports started working, and the top 2 ports on the back started working. Front what I can tell they are working at USB 2.0. That's fine as I have a USB 3.0 card that seems to be working right. If anyone needs info on any...

    AG_Cipher - Again, sending you tons of thanks and much praise for all your info. I don't think I would have gotten this done as easily without your help!!! I was able to update my Sierra build, and it runs great. Thank you - I won't have to build a new rig for a while! You thought about the...

    AG_Cipher - That's great! Thank you for the info above. I'm not quite there, but I'm closer. I decided to follow your lead on another front, and do a clean install on another drive. This seemed like a good idea for 2 reasons: it would confirm that my rig would actually run Mojave, since you...

    I'm getting closer. I've taken a strange path on this upgrade because I was trying a different route before I found this thread. With hope it will work and I can reconstruct it and put some notes here. I've got Mojave installed, but still can't boot all the way to the desktop. Side question -...

    I don't have that kext in my sys drive, but I suspect that there might be some others conflicting. I'll look to get rid of extraneous ones if I can get this going.

    AG_Cipher Wow! This is an amazing amount of info here, and you are inspiring me to get back into solving this upgrade. Thank you for the FYI in the earlier post. Questions at the moment: What version of Bios are you using? I only ask, because I am using the Bios that came with the board back...

    [SUCCESS] Mojave 14.1 despite “The macOS Installation couldn’t be completed” error

    Hmmm. Looks like you can't send a private message until you have 75 posts. I'll watch your thread for an update. I guess I'll keep trying to figure out my system in the interim. If I find something that works, I'll post it on your thread.

    [SUCCESS] Mojave 14.1 despite “The macOS Installation couldn’t be completed” error

    AG_Cipher Thank you so much, and thank you for your link - I'm watching it now. I'll send you a couple of brief questions when I'm home later and can look at the system (on my phone now). I'm hoping to get one or two more rounds out of this system. It's been great for a long time now (I did my...

    [SUCCESS] Mojave 14.1 despite “The macOS Installation couldn’t be completed” error

    I have the same board that you have, but a different GPU (Geforce GT640 - basic! maybe this is the problem?) Did you do an install on your actual main drive and was it successful? I'm stuck getting my system to upgrade to High Sierra (trying to get to Mojave). When I try to do the reboot after...

    Direct Update to macOS Sierra using Clover

    After earlier issues, I now run a main system drive and 2 clones at all time. So, I always update a clone, and if that runs well, I update the main drive, then finally a second clone. Saves a bit of time and heart ache when things go wrong. Anyway, I got the first clone to boot Sierra, but only...

    OS X 10.11.6 Update

    Honestly not sure - I seem to remember with earlier updates that there was issues sometimes with the app store, so I just always do the combo update. Old habit. Might not be necessary anymore.

    OS X 10.11.6 Update

    Combo update worked fine. Trim stayed enabled. I'm using 5,1 profile, and it seems to be working fine.
