In the installation process of Mojave all works well with Unibeast and the BIOS settings for my board (GA-H270M-D3H). However when I configure Multibeast Mojave Edition it will not write to the EFI location on my hard drive EFI partition. My current work around is to copy the EFI from the install disk that was created by Unibeast onto the hard drive EFI location but this is not ideal as it does not have the kexts recommended for this motherboard. Has anyone else had issues with the Multibeast not being able to overwrite the hard drive EFI with the desired setup? Is there a fix, or am I missing something?

Ah!.. So is there a option in the boot from the Unibeast Clover disk that does not put it in safe mode so that the Multibeast can mount the EFI. Or can I mount it manually in Safe Mode by creating a Volume called EFI and then mounting the drives EFI with diskutil mount command. That would at least make it accessible. Then if there was a way to have the files produced by Multibeast to a directory it could be manually moved over to the drive as well. Thoughts?

Yep!! That was the way to do it. Pleas see below.

1. Go ahead and load Mojave with Unibeast and your proper BIOS settings for your board. Many boards are here on this site.
2. With the installation complete, you will then be able to login but using the Unibeast Mojave disk as the boot device and choosing the APFS for your Mojave disk. Then login. (remember up to this point you have to choose the Unibeast EFI Clover option in your computers startup BIOS choices until you get Multibeast on)

3. Go ahead Login and download Multibeast for Mojave (of course register with tonymac) but before your run Multibeast do the following.

3. Open a terminal window and use the diskutil by entering in. diskutil list
this will give a list of the drives and volumes on our system.
4. Find the disk?s? that is labeled EFI EFI for your Majave bootable hard drive from the list. (example EFI EFI disk0s2)
5. sudo mkdir /Volumes/EFI
6. sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk1s2 /Volumes/EFI

This will put your EFI directory on your bootable disk into a accessible mode with Multibeast.

7. Run Multibeast and install.

Reboot your computer and enjoy as I am doing.



7. Then run Multibeast with the settings you find for your motherboard/bios and install to your hard drive.

This worked and I am in.

Also a warning if you are bringing a system back from Time Machine that was High Sierra into your new Mojave. Stick to just your files and applications as other files will corrupt your installation.

9. Reboot your computer but change BIOS settings to boot from your hard drive instead of the installer Unibeast EFI drive.
