Hi to all

I've made some progress since my "pci configuration begin" problem. Now I get another one. See below. I tried to put as many pictures as possible with the verbose boot and crash + BIOS exact settings.

(ASMEDIA is OFF. Might have forgotten to take a pic of that).

EFI folder also attached.

Thanks for your help! :D

My configuration (for mobile viewers): https://pastebin.com/HNU30j7A

System configuration

Intel Core i7 5960X - Haswell-E (OC at 4.2 GHz)
ASUS X99-A motherboard ( https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/X99A/specifications/ ) --> BIOS Version 4101 ! PATCHED MEMORY !
AMD Radeon VII GPU

DXDIAG Report ( https://pastebin.com/EhevXyTN )

If you need any more information, please ask.

For those having the same system (or at least, the motherboard), this is the key to boot MacOS Mojave 10.14.6. It has also been tested on Mojave 10.14.

WARNING: IF YOU TRY TO BOOT MOJAVE WITH A Radeon VII OR MORE RECENT, YOU WILL GET A BLACK SCREEN AFTER THE VERBOSE PART. YOU MUST BOOT A MOJAVE THAT SUPPORTS THE NEW AMD CARDS OUT OF THE BOX OR YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO INSTALL !!!

(The Installer will boot, no kernel panics etc, but you can't interact with it so it's pointless to force a version that has no support for your card in that manner. Some versions will work but without acceleration. Happened for my 980Ti but had a black screen with my Radeon on 10.14).

Have fun hackintoshing. To me, everything works out of the box, I got Wi-Fi, Audio (Siberia 840), etc..

I will add a bluetooth controller later on, and maybe some other stuff that works 100% out of the box.

I had a lot of trouble getting my system updated to Mojave :banghead:
But with a lot of tweaks in my config and clover folder I finally got a stable working Mojave system.
For all those who have an Asus X99 E-WS with a 5960X I've attached my EFI. Maybe it can help someone updating more easily

All the best :)

Thanks for sharing this EFI folder. I have exactly same setup with Radeon 5700 XF. Have you tried to install Catalina? Thanks

Sadly, my i7 5960X died, so I had to switch platforms. My new configuration is:

MB: ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-E Gaming (LGA 1200)
CPU: Intel Core i7 10700K (all cores at 5.0 GHz)
GPU: XFX AMD Radeon VII

Note: I didn't use the clover folder, I switched my system to OpenCore and it was working wonderfully. If you are interested, I can share my EFI with you (just ask, because I have to look for it and might take some time and I'm quite lazy to do it now lol).

I'll wait something like 2 years before switching back to NVIDIA, then I will have to setup my iGPU and that will be a challenge for me, I don't think it's easy to do. What is nice for having a consumer chip is that I get to have an iGPU for macOS exactly for that moment when I switch GPUs. However, that AMD card will not go to waste, I will give it to my parents so that they can replace their very old NVIDIA 650Ti Boost (which works in macOS btw, with artifacts from Catalina to Big Sur, metal being not really well supported for them. But Mojave runs very nicely!).
