    [Solved] Mojave Wants to Install Mac Pro Firmware

    So how did everyone get past this with the installer? Obviously, the directions to shutdown and hold the power button until light flashes and a long tone sounds will not work on PC hardware.

Booting the USB, selecting Install icon at the new Clover screen, on reboot selecting the install icon for the HDD was getting me a white screen, then the eternal beach ball. One go-round looked as if was going...

    Unsuccessful again: installing Mavericks or Sierra or Mountain Lion on Asus laptop

    Installing on a laptop is not as easy as a desktop. I am still struggling with a G751JY. Have you included the fix for installing on NVMe in your Clover boot USB? OS X will not install on NVMe without it since it has no support for NVMe drives.

    Handoff/Continuity Hardware List, 2016

    I have the Fenvi adapter with an Apple Broadcom BCM94360CD iMac WiFI/BT card (both bought from Amazon.com) in a build with an MSI H77M G43 and i5 3570K and it work just fine. Also tested it in the X58A build in my sig. The only problem I see is that the card seems to be hard to find today -...

    Sierra clean instal on X58A

    Built a Legacy Mode Sierra USB installer and tried a clean install on the X58A. Regardless of presence of NullCPUPM kext in Clover/kexts/other folder I am getting a KP on AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext.

    Sierra on an Asus ROG G751JY

    So far this has been a dream laptop to work with OS X on. I have not really done much with it past the basic install of Sierra PB1 except to install the nVidia drivers for the GTX980M GPU. 1920x1080 screen resolution on a 17.3 screen makes the fonts too small for me to read so I have to attach a...

    macOS Recovery HD Update 1.0

    What is this update calculating? Space on the Recovery partition? Available space on the drive for expanding the recovery partition? It has been sitting there "calculating" for half an hour now.
