Hi! Rehabman. I followed the guide perfectly and was able to reach up to post installation with ./download.sh
I am stuck at this portion. There seems to be a problem with the repositories listed on the download.sh, most of the repository will have curl: (56) LibreSSL SSL_read: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL, errno 54 errors. Tried to download some of the repositories manually but still cant seem to download some of them like the FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet and BrcmPatchRam.
Just tested download.sh here... it works just fine. No such errors that I can reproduce.

Really having a hard time downloading this post-installation patches via download.sh
Is there other repositories where I can download this required kexts.
You should fix your internet connection.

This guide has nothing to do with VirtualBox.
it was just a test.

at the end I used easy partition to force intel nuc to boot from usb drive, it was the only solution and it's working.

Note that you have some sleep preventers:

You might want to do a fresh install to be certain 3rd party software you installed is not having an impact.
Hi @RehabMan, hi all,

It's a bit old, but here's what I did:

Following your advices, I disabled trim, removed SoundFlower, checked the BIOS and even updated it, but none solved the crashing problem.

What solved it, is deleting all the com.apple.PowerManagement.* plist files in /Library/Preferences/ and rebooting.

Hope this can help others...

Thanks.

Dear,

I was happily running OSX 10.12 for about 3 years without any real problems.
Recently I started noticing some problems: Every couple of days, the computer refused to return from Sleep mode.

Therefor I decided to upgrade my machine to the latest Clover and OSX (10.14.4).
I followed the Guide and all went reasonably fine.

However, problems persisted and got even worse.
At this point the machine freezes quite often, also when not in sleep.
Then the spinning beach ball arrives and there is nothing you can do (I tried remote login over SSH, but that also fails).

I attach the logs as generated by "gen_debug".
In these logs there are two occurrences of the machine freezing.

1) 01/04/2019 at 20h30 (+- 10 minutes) local time (UTC+2)
2) 02/04/2019 at 19h40 (+- 10 minutes) local time (UTC+2)

If you would find anything peculiar in the logs, I would be most grateful.

Regards,

Filip

Maybe it’s heating too much?
My Nuc used to crash because of overheating, but go figure, only on Windows.
Open it and look for dust, or try to modify fan speed in BIOS...

@RehabMan, thank you for these detailed guides. Though it did take me a while, careful reading and backtracking through the steps when things went off the rails was invaluable in getting my first few hackintosh attempts up and running. Understanding the hardware really is key.. ;)

I wanted to add a few pointers that I discovered in my specific build, in case other users have the same NUC model I have. I successfully got Mac OS Mojave installed on a NUC5i7RYHN kit with 160 Gig M.2 SSD and 8 Gig ram, but there were a few gotcha's..

1. This, and other NUC BIOS apparently, don't always play nice with older HD displays. If you find that you cannot see post NUC logo or visual BIOS screens unless you use a mini-displayport to VGA adapter, then you might have this issue. This had me pulling my hair out trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. Just use another monitor.

2. My specific NUC kit has one mini-HDMI and one mini-displayport video. The processor is a i7-5557U and the GPU is Intel Iris 6100, which is a bit of an oddity on the Apple Mac hardware side. The only mac model with this processor is the MacBookPro12,1. MacTracker is your best friend for reverse searches for processors and Mac models. Once I had this model in my config.plist, it greatly eased my install setup.

Thanks again for all the great information. Cheers!
