download.sh and install_downloads.sh takes care of installing/copying kexts to the correct location(s).
Just follow post #1.
If you're curious you can examine the script and/or results to see what it does.





You probably forgot HFSPlus.efi and/or apfs.efi in drivers64UEFI.
Make sure you follow the guide carefully.
Thank you for your response. I should have used the USB drive as the booting device.

Is there any problem if initially(for the new install) I used the compromised disk’s Clover to boot into the install USB partition? Now I have no recovery partition on the drive. It appears only if I plug in the USB.

As for the case when I am using High Sierra, this is how it looks like. Please notice that the recovery partition and the rest of them are not displayed. I can see them if I boot from USB though.

I also have some “pre” Clover stuff:

As expected. The Recovery partition and others are hidden by config.plist settings.
You need to press F3 (as per Clover documentation) to show hidden boot targets.

It is due to afps.efi. If you search you can find instructions for patching it so the logs do not appear.

Hi, I noticed nuc5 support on Intel-NUC-DSDT-Patch RehabMan's repository so I tried to install Mojave on my NUC5i7RYB.

Unfortunately the system reboots with a "Panic on FB Memory Manager..." at the very first clover's boot (just before initial setup).

Bios updated and configured properly, I tried both minidisplay port and mini hdmi port for my Philips 273V FHD monitor.

Report files attached and boot video available here:

Any hints? Thank you!

You're using the wrong config.plist.
Must use config_install_nuc5.plist for USB installer.
config_nuc5.plist is only for post-install.
I didn't check anything else after seeing this obvious mistake, so you might want to read the guide a bit more carefully to make sure you didn't make other mistakes.

Shame on me, after using the proper installation plist setup was done properly, but when exit from sleep (just sleep, not hibernation of course) the monitor won't display anything (I tried both mini display port and mini hdmi), and I suspect also usb isn't working either since num lock in keyboard is alwasy off.

Also audio over hdmi isn't working at all, for this after reading carefully the doc, in a just git-pulled repo, I changed FAKH to 1 in SSDT-NUC5.dsl (then make clean and make install_nuc5) but no luck, so I rebuilt kext cache (booting clover without cache and "sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /") but it still no works.

Analog audio works fine.

For video and usb after the sleep I have no clue, so I didn't tried anything yet.

My monitor is a FHD Philips 273V.

Report file attached, thank you.

Your ioreg shows two monitors connected.
One at framebuffer@1, another at framebuffer@2.
How is each connected?

Depending on the port used for each (if one or both is HDMI), you need to enable one or more of the framebuffer patches you find in config.plist/Devices/Properties. My NUC5 is dual-DP, so the patches are disabled by default.

Both are connected to two identical philips 273V monitors via hdmi, one miniHDMI->HDMI the other miniDP->HDMI.
To avoid mistakes (by me of course) i'm using only one monitor per time in the following debug.

Depending on the port used for each (if one or both is HDMI), you need to enable one or more of the framebuffer patches you find in config.plist/Devices/Properties.
So if I get the point (I hope I did), I modified to 1 the integer of the key framebuffer-con1-enable of my config.plist, so I tried to reboot the first time with the miniHDMI->HDMI and the second time with miniDP->HDMI.
In both reboots audio still doesn't work via HDMI.
Always in the config.plist I noticed a key audio followed with a key inject with the integer 0, I'm not sure what is this, but i tried also to change it to 1 and reboot, but still no luck, so i reverted it to 0.

In any case resume after sleep isn't working, and I can confirm isn't only display related because also networking and usb isn't working after wake.

For each attempt I made a system report, and they are attached.
