Hi,
this EFI Folder contains the Setup for:
SM X9Dai​
Dual E5-2670v1​
Radeon VII (Slot-5)​
Both integrated Ethernet Cards​
USB2.0 + Renesas USB 3.0 (with mXHCD.kext)​
Audio (ALC889) is not working because of instabilities with GPU​
Set your Bios to default, then change the following settings:
Chipset > North Bridge:​
VT-d: off​
Slot-5 x16​
Chipset > South Bridge:​
Azalia HD: Disabled​
SATA Configuration:​
Agressive Link Power Management: Disabled (freezes the Rig sometimes)​
SAS Configuration:​
SCU Devices: disabled​
PCIe/PCI Configuration:​
PCI Rom Priority: UEFI​
Graphic Rom: UEFI​
(Never enable Above 4GB Decoding, it gives you black Screen, unable to get into Bios again)​
Disable all PCIe Slot Option Roms​
Disable Lan option Rom​
ACPI Settings:​
Sleep State: S3​
Boot:​
Boot Option: UEFI​
(Add your Mac Hard drive with Clover as UEFI OS Boot Option.)​

I suggest you grab a HDD/SSD, put it into a USB Enclosure, grab a Mac, download Mojave, start Setup and Select the external Disk. When the setup first asks you to restart, do it, but don´t boot into the setup hard drive but into the internal one. Then copy the EFI Folder onto the EFI Volume of the external Disk, put it in the Rig and finish setup from there. Thats the easiest way.
Don´t forget to change the Serial and UUID in the config.plist first.

Have fun!

Hi There, already moved to Catalina?
I've got the first version 10.15.0 running after some fiddling around.
Most importantly:
- had to add DisableMCEReporter.kext to bypass the new dual CPU checks
- remove whatevergreen.kext (resulted in black screen)
- enable the "ALPM IO Error AppleAHCIPort" for 10.15x

Now 10.15.1 haws been released the panic on the IntelAppleMCEReporter returned....

EDIT! made it to 10.15.1! after a lot of attempts I updated to lilu 1.3.9, added cpufriend.kext (latest version). and have both DisableMCEReporter.kext and MCEReporterDisabler.kext in my kext/Other folder.

1 disabler kext is the 'original attempt' and the other one is based on the original but made opensource (separate repo). Don't know why but the MacOS upgrade installed even though there was still an error on the AppleIntelMCEReporter probe.

So.... catalina running fine again on my dual Xeon x9dai!

Nope don't think I ever had that issue. What I do have occasionally is that the boot post 'hangs' at 92. I've got a dual boot setup with win 10 and disconnecting the windows drive and reboot fixes this. no clue why that happens.
