Hello everyone,

When I finally managed to install MacOS mojave on my internal ssd than when I boot it up I get a grey screen.
Some people on the form says that the Fakesmc doesn't work properly. But I have no idea how to fix this. Can someone please help me? And is there a special way to install the kexts or can you just place them in the folder with finder?

After Installing Mojave on SSD, did you install CLOVER and needed kexts and edit its config.plist manually or using Multibeast?

What is the source of the uploaded EFI?
  • Is it from the macOSMojave Installer USB or macOS SSD's EFI Partition?
  • What is your BIOS Graphics Options for Display and DVMT Pre-allocated Memory?

The source of the uploaded EFI is clover if that is what you mean. The uploaded EFI is from a USB, In the bios graphics options is the IGPU Multi-monitor enabled and i don't know what the DVMT Pre-Allocated memory is but I Don't think i've changed it.

  • Since you had been able to install the macOS Mojave using the EFI-CLOVER file Tree from your macOSMojave USB Installer and apparently not installed CLOVER and kexts on the macOSMojave SSD (My assumption because you had not answered my question
    After Installing Mojave on SSD, did you install CLOVER and needed kexts and edit its config.plist manually or using Multibeast?
    ), you can try to copy and paste the EFI Folder from your macOSMojave USB installer's hidden EFI Partition on to the corresponding EFI Partition of the macOSMojave System SSD to see if you can boot and reach the Desktop of the macOSMojave SSD.

  • When checking your EFI from USB, I still see several problems in its CLOVER _FileTree and config.plist SECTIONS (see uploaded screen shots for problems noted) but you might be able to fix them by editing the pasted EFI on the SSD's EFI Partition if you can use the USB to boot and reach the Desktop.

  • If you cannot reach the desktop of Mojave SSD using current USB Installer, then you may have to edit its CLOVER to fix the problems and then copy and paste the fixed EFI on to SSD.

The steps for the above:

  1. Boot your current problem computer using the macOSMojave USB installer Flash disk to Clover Boot Manager (CBM)Screen
  2. At CBM screen , press space bar once and then from popup Options, click to place [√]Verbose (-v)
  3. Return to CBM and select your macOSMojave SSD and boot in verbose. If all goes well, you may be able to log on to Desktop
  4. From Desktop download Clover Configurator Global(CCG) and mount the hidden EFI partitions of both the USB Installer and SSD ( For Steps, see #4 or #9)
  5. Delete the EFI Folder from the SSD (if present) and copy and paste the EFI folder from the USB Installer as replacement
  6. Open the EFI>CLOVER from SSD using CCG
  7. Edit CLOVER and Save as shown in the uploaded screen shots
  8. Now Eject the USB Installer
  9. Reboot to BIOS and make your Mojave SSD as the First Boot Disk
  10. Make sure you select Mojave SSD from Disk Selection Screen to reach CBM and boot the System disk.

In general, a grey screen may be caused by a graphics setup issue. I had this issue once too which was resolved by resetting the NVram in OpenCore. Make sure to try that too and check all BIOS settings to be correct and matching you graphics setup.
