Greetings. Does Siri understand speech through the built-in microphone?

With your config it worked on my nuc7, but due to other problems my Hackintosh crashed after a few minutes (multiple times), so I had to go back to my config file which doesn’t support it (yet).

You have another video (Iris Plus 640?). Maybe you need to change AAPL, ig-platform-id (00005912) and device-id (59120000) and / or MAC model (iMac18,1)?

Thanks, but with these settings I had no luck either.

Try removing any reference to graphic device IDs...also in the boot flags change lilucpu to 9.

lilucpu=9

I haven't tested it but I don't have wifi or continuity working because of that. I don't think Siri will work without it even if the microphone works...could be wrong.

To new users trying to load Mojave on an NUC8x please be aware this guide is no longer being maintained.
With recent bios updates being pushed out by Intel above version 56 as well as updates by Apple to Mojave beyond 14.2 the guide has become outdated and no longer works as is.

Two things additional things are needed at a minimum to be able to reach the Mojave install window.

1. An updated version of the Clover bootloader must be installed, I suggest version 4290 or higher, although slightly older versions will probably work but have not been tested. Rehabman’s version available through the terminal commands in his original guide on Github will cause the installer to halt.

2. An updated config.plist containing an ACPI/DSDT/Patch for an RTC issue that will also cause the installer to stall if your bios is a version higher than 56

***Some users are also apparently unaware that their Samsung 970 EVO plus SSD will also cause install failure if the firmware is not updated first. Visit the Samsung Website for instructions on how to create a bootable USB drive for firmware updates.

The attached EFI folder has all of the above as well as some fixes for onboard Audio and USB C functionality.

If you decide to use it it’s as simple as creating a bootable USB drive using UniBeast and then replacing the EFI folder with the attached.

Once Mojave install is complete and you have then installed an updated version of Clover to your hard drive replace the EFI folder on your hard drive with the same attached folder to finish the job. Afterwards I highly suggest you use Clover Configurator to create a unique serial number (although “continuity” is not an issue unless you have gone the route of adding a Wireless/ Bluetooth card in the one available M2 slot with the appropriate adapter mentioned in various NUC posts). Cheers
You are a legend sir! I got *everything* working in less than 30 minutes because of your post & EFI on my Intel NUC8i7BEH. Amazing work and post :clap:
