I have Mojave installed (after cloning it back from a dmg backup) without the other partitions (preboot and recovery), it works perfectly and updates seamlessly — actually, I never kept preboot and recovery on my machine until now. ;)
I'm wondering if the following MacOS versions can be...
I meant the APFS format itself: will an APFS drive formatted under Mojave be any different than the same one formatted under Big Sur, for example? (like for HDMI 1.0, 1.1, etc.)
I guess your answer means no. :)
I want to share this little trick, useful if you have old USB keys of little capacity (say 1GB): usually they will be formatted as MBR with a FAT32 partition. Well, I've discovered that the EFI partition's size doesn't matter for our bootloaders as long as it's called "EFI" (I'm currently using...
Thanks @milluco as always for this essential guide! :thumbup:
Just out of curiosity: I suppose APFS MinDate and MinVersion are for providing a better APFS support, depending on the OS — meaning that APFS version in Mojave is not exactly the same as in Big Sur?
As I understand it, there's forward...
You can check your iGPU capabilities there: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/80817/intel-core-i5-4460-processor-6m-cache-up-to-3-40-ghz.html
From my limited experience (I've only tested my iGPU on my Z68 build once and I keep using my NVidia since then), I finally found out...
Well, everything we do on our computers is "at our own risk".
No, you surely don't risk any physical damage, but I can't guarantee it works as I'm not the source of that EFI and I don't have your mobo.
I've checked that EFI for you and it looks ok, but only you can try it on your build.
Thanks a lot for those precisions. ;)
Of course I revere Rehabman as much as you do and will eternally be grateful for all he brought us! :thumbup:
EDIT: and I'm terribly sorry he vanished away with nobody apparently knowing what has become of him.
Yes, it looks very close to your build. But of course, at your own risk. ;-)
If I were you, I'd try it on a USB key's EFI — even if you know nothing about OpenCore, you just have to put the EFI folder in your EFI (but of course, it's better to know what you're doing...) If by chance everything...
XHCI is about USB3. Searching for "rehabman injector 300 series XHCI" gives results that say it's been replaced by another one in USBInjectAll repository...
But it's rather recommended to patch USB via Hackintool method (or other ones, my favourite one being Corpnewt USBMap method — just search...
are part of MacOS, you can leave them there, they're generally useless.
As for the rest of them, some are drivers...
Oh, sorry! I was not thinking about Xcode. Of course, I understand. :oops:
In that case, I suppose you have the skills for using OpenCore instead of Clover, in my particular case it's been quite necessary, but of course it depends on your build.
Searching for "Asrock B85-DGS i5 4460 Big Sur", I...
