I've had a fully working hackintosh for about a year and a few days a go I was in a hurry and stupidly decided to upgrade clover and kexts without backup and managed to pretty much brick the system.
Now I have gotten it to partially work but only with nv_disable=1. Without it I'll get a black screen.
As I understand it Mojave should have native support for Kepler but MacOS seems recognise the GPU as NVIDIA Chip Model 9 MB.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

OS: Mojave, 10.14.6 (18G103)
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K
GPU: Nvidia 780 TI (DVI to monitor)
Motherboard: ASUS Z170 PRO GAMING

I have attached the EFI partition and a screen shot of the last log before the screen is turning black.

Here is also a video of the boot:

if you want to restore the old clover, check the clover installation log

Thanks, can't believe I missed that.
While it did not boot immediately with and older version I got it to boot after copying some kexts from a brand new MacOS that booted with the older backup.

Moderators: While my issue is solved the thread is not really solved and will not directly help others so maybe it should be removed?
