hv you looked thru the authoritative guide on this board from CaseySJ?
am a huge fan of Mojave as well, it is just so responsive and stable
There have been issues running certain applications (R language, Python 3, VirtualBox as examples) which need tweaking and updating Xcode, but i've been relishing the work and the challenge to maintain this old lady :)
am afraid my laptop is foobar; lots of digging required
what happened was i installed Ubuntu on a third partition, and it wiped out even my good Monterey EFI
the Mojave partition is still there, but not sure where i put the last good copy of its efi
btw, if you look around there...
perhaps the OP wld like to get full-compatibility (i.e. AirDrop etc) ...
yes, unfortunately removability of wifi-card is seldom fully documented
one almost always need to hv physical access/inspection of the actual board
hi @Feartech , thanks. just a modest achievement (tho time-consuming) :)
inspired by all the wonderful & helpful moderators on this board. Just wanted to achieve this as a challenge, because lots of folks had told me it's "impossible".
my first couple of builds used Mojave and i personally...
managed to install and boot up Mojave 10.14.6 on this laptop
- i5-10210u, 4 core, 8 threads
- 16gb 2667Mhz ddr4 RAM
- WD sn730 SSD
- intel wifi card (built-in soldered)
so far the following works:
- igpu support of intel hd 620
- sleep, wake, restart
well, we all can read how the MSI z690i failed the complete install (including Thunderbolt activation).
i just had a conversation with a hackintosher (with paying customers), & he confirmed that z690i & z690 Godlike both did not pass thorough install.
perhaps things will change with future BIOS...
