you have to boot with the bootx64.efi. It's a grub command. Not a terminal command.

If you are working with 1080p monitor, just stay away from this fix. Only do this if you really need 4k!

To make it work with 4K monitor you have to edit the BIOS by yourself. WARNING!!! DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK. THIS METHOD IS FOR THE DELL OPTIPLEX 3060 MFF only (it might work with SFF or MT but check your BIOS before you do this). It might brick your machine.
  • Create a bootable USB with EFI Shell
    • Format a USB 2.0 Stick as FAT32 with MBR named EFI
    • Create /EFI/BOOT/
    • copy BOOTX64.efi into that folder
  • Boot with it
  • on grub command type : setup_var 0x8DC to check the current value it should be 0x01
  • Change to 0x02 by typing : setup_var 0x8DC 0x2
  • Check the value again : setup_var 0x8DC make sure that it is 0x02
  • Reboot!
After successfully boot, edit the config.plist with clover configurator delete the framebuffer-stolenmem, framebuffer-fbmem and the enable-hdmi20. Reboot again, and set your 4k display resolution in the display preference.

You can have 4K @ 30Hz with the HDMI port and 4K @ 60Hz with the Display Port.

follow this instruction to the letter!!!

Hi,

Working on something a tiny bit different here: a 3070 Micro (10.5.5, my 6th or 7th hack, stopped counting), but I made great progress based on Fungcie’s steps here. For example bootx64.efi method from #2, went smooth although there is a typo in it: [I]setup_var 0x8DC 0x2[/I] should be [I]setup_var 0x8DC 0x02[/I] instead, but NBD. Some people say you can also do it with WEG settings, but I never could before I used setup_var

Trying to make a media center thingy, and I will possibly try and summarize the result into a guide when I’m done, as it’s been tougher than usual

It’s giving me a hard time just at the end: I got everything set up on a DP display from DP port (DP-DP cable), 60Hz, UHD 630 acceleration (trying different SMBIOS/Framebuffers combos), ALC audio, sleep, etc… All good until I switched to HDMI, and then blank screen all over: not HDMI-HDMI even at 30Hz, not DP-DP cable + DP-HMDI adapter, not even direct DP-HDMI cable, only plain DP-DP cable works…

I started with my own EFI folder (iMac 19,1 or 19,2, iMac 18,1 or 18,2 or 18,3, combined with different Framebuffers) but no luck. Then I tried with your EFI folder (MacMini 8,1 no Intel Inject), and same thing: works in DP-DP but nothing with HDMI in it. I searched around here, couldn’t find anything, and yet, it feels I’m missing something obvious. Any idea?

Thanks all!

First of all 0x2 and 0x02 is the same it only representation of number.
And about the hdmi, you should check if your hdmi output port number is different from mine. And change itu accordingly on the device properties. Use hackintool to check the port number of hdmi output.

My Optiplex 3060 micro spec is :
  • Processor i3 8100T,
  • 8 GB DDR4 single channel memory
  • 500GB samsung evo pro 970 SSD.
  • 500GB Hdd for Windows 10
  • Intel HD Graphics 630
  • Internal audio : ALC3234
  • Realtek RTL 8111HSD-CG Gigabit Ethernet LAN 10/100/1000 Mb/s
  • Chipset : H370
  • Dell DW1820A wifi and bluetooth card.
The only problem is you cannot set the DVMT value in the bios menu, so I just add some properties in the devices menu for the igpu to make it work.

GPU acceleration is working
HDMI port is working
HDMI audio is working
All usb is working USB 3.0 and 2.0
Sound inject 13,18,27,30,31 choose base on what you need. Some ports are working some are not.
Internal speaker is working
Ethernet is working
Shutdown is working
Display sleep / wake is working
Dual Boot is working
4K is working with BIOS patch, 30Hz with HDMI, 60Hz with DP.
iCloud is working
iMessage is working
Apps Store is working
Wifi & Bluetooth is working flawlessly

unplug the HDD before you install the OS X to make sure that you install to the correct SSD

Download the mojave installer from Apps Store
make the USB installer (you can google how to make it)
Install Clover to the USB installer
Using clover configurator, mount the efi from usb
Download the EFI for optiplex 3060 MFF, extract it, and replace the EFI in the USB installer with it.
Boot the Dell Optiplex 3060 with the USB installer
Using the Disk Util erase the SSD with OSX Journaled format
Install the OS X Mojave
Create EFI partition for Hackintosh
  • using terminal locate SSD & USB's disk no. by
    • diskutil list
  • Create EFI partition for Hackintosh :
    • sudo mkdir /Volumes/efidisk
    • sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk{number} /Volumes/efidisk
  • Mount USB's EFI partition
    • sudo mkdir /Volumes/efiusb
    • sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk{number} /Volumes/efiusb
  • Copy clover settings from USB
    • cp -R /Volumes/efiusb/* /Volumes/efidisk
before you login to the icloud make sure that you change the serial number by editing the config.plist by generating new serial and check it on the apple website.
Happy Hackintoshing everyone!!!
