At which point are you getting black screen?

I also got really strange behavior with this motherboard. After getting macOS installed, I pulled it out of my system and went back to Z370. This motherboard completely turned me off to Z390.

Please upload your CLOVER as zipped [ #4] and the BIOS options chosen for the boot as screen shots[ #33] along with verbose boot screens leading to the Black screen to figure out what can be the problem.

I'm sure you can eventually get it to work. I eventually managed to get macOS installed on mine. I just felt that it didn't run macOS as well as my Z370. Not even close.

Since you already have it, I suggest you keep trying. Again, I'm sure you will eventually get macOS on there. Try with a fresh attempt at creating your EFI folder. Try with different Aptio fixes.

I have followed the BOIS settings as recommended in Z390 Guide (gigabyte) (for some reason my bios was reset ! so i did it again to make sure) (+ initial GPU = iGPU)

here's the screenshot (taken from a video) just before the screen goes back ! + EFI
thanks in advance

Yes, that happened to me quite a few times too. The BIOS would reset itself apparently of it's own will.

Get rid of Inject Intel.

  • Looks like your Clover Bootloader is struggling to enable Graphics despite you correcting the BIOS problem with Disabled IGFX.
  • Looking at the EFI_CLOVER FileTree and config.plist SECTIONS, I note the following for you to edit as shown in the uploaded screen shots.
    • If this still does not fix it, you may have to make changes in ACPI SECTION of config.plist based on Verbose boot screen

SIP can be enabled if injecting kexts via /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/*/.

I've had SIP enabled on my system for months.

thanks for the reply. i'll try that right away
Just to be clear in BIOS . Initial Display out put should be iGFX ?
or it doesn't matter since the dGPU is disconnected ?
