Just installed Mojave yesterday on my EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini. Works quite smooth even in 4k resolution. What doesn´t work yet is BT, WIFI and internal Audio. Just wonder if I am the only one with the "Mini" build?
Hello no you are not alone, I just had one and I want to make a hackintosh under catalina

Hi. I am trying to install catalina on my EliteDesk 800 G2 mini. Could anyone kindly share the config.plist file for booting clover please. I am unable to load installation as I get kernel panic.

config.plist and the list of kexts would massively help.

for me it works under catalina (think about customizing it if you want iCloud, iMessage, Facetime)

Hello
I am French and I followed this video:

on the other hand on catalina we must add SUDO like this:
spctl --master-disable
sudo mount -uw /
killall Finder

Keep me informed

***FIXED***

Hey guys. Has anyone managed to get the sd card header to work and be recognised? I want to use it as a usb header for my WiFi/Bluetooth card. I had it show up once for the Bluetooth but subsequently disappeared after a reboot. I made a custom ssdt for the usbs but after reboot it doesn’t show anymore.

Any ideas?
@PaintArm2
I'm looking to get a PCIe adapter for a macbook air wifi+bluetooth card and install it in the HP 800 G2 (running Ubuntu...I haven't got around to trying hackintosh yet!). I understand that for bluetooth I'll need to connect the adapter to a usb header on the motherboard, and I thought of using the SD card header as you have done, but it sounds like it won't work? Does "FIXED" mean you managed to fix it, and if so how?

I finally got my EliteDesk 800 G2 TWR running with Dual Monitors (see below)

I tried to follow @sakoula GitHub but kept ending up with boot loops before even booting into the installer.
I did a vanilla install - Created USB with UniBeast, installed clover using Clover Configurator and then used @PaintArm2 EFI folder.

All worked with Graphics Acceleration but no dual monitors.

I chatted with sakoula who took time of his own to try help me figure out the dual monitor thing, but we came up with nothing. We reverted to his EFI and Kext's and made a bit of progress but it still did not work. We think its because Im using DP-HDMI or DP-DVI cable (no adapters) and not DP-DP.

However, happened to have a Lenovo USB3.0 laptop dock that has DisplayLink standard. I installed the generic DisplayLink macOS drivers, rebooted and now have Dual Monitors working! W00000T

Only think that is missing is higher USB limit but TBH I may not need them anyway, especially now that the dock also has USB

So once again, a huge thank you to @sakoula for (first of all) putting together your GitHub guide and also trying to help me out with my build - what a champ.

@sakoula
i already read all the articles in this thread since i also try to make my 800G2 Mini PC work with MacOS.
I tried installing High Sierra, Mojave & Catalina but couldn't make any of them work.
I encountered all the typical issues but finally got stuck at booting issue (keeps rebooting 2Min before installation finishes).

To make the 800G2Mini work with Mojave or even Catalina, can i use this guide above?
Which files do i have to use?
Can you attach the latest EFI folder you have? (so that i don't encounter the issues with GPU, Audio, USB, Screens)

Im trying to install MacOS since 2 days and i am getting nuts.. hope you can help

Are the 800G2 and 600G2 basically same things? I made my 600 G2 micro work with Mojave some time ago. Never tested multimonitor support (MFF has only one DP output) but everything else worked just fine.

Unfortunately I moved to the dell 3050 MFF, but EFI backup still in the virtual machine on the my work PC. It has somewhat obsolete Clover and drivers but it doesn't matter I guess. Will update this post soon with an EFI attachment

@ipmungam For Hackintosh then yes, Ubuntu I have no idea. Yes fixed means it works from the SD Card header. I don't use my ED 800 G2 TWR anymore as I upgraded to a 800 G3 mini and coverted the G2 TWR into a NAS (loads of room for drives with some case mods). What makes you think it won't work? If memory serves, you have to enable the SD Card within the bios then using Hackintool map your USB ports correctly and install the USBPorts.kext to L\E\ and the generated SSDT-EC.aml to EFI\Clover\ACPI\Patched.

I'd follow the guide (in Hackintool, select the USB tab then select the I at the bottom) in order to map the USB ports correctly as its more involved than just generating the necessary files

I believe I have an EFI that should work fine for the G2 Tower if you'd like to try it. It should be updated to work with Catalina also

@a7med I found with Catalina that if you don't have either a generated SSDT-EC.aml in the EFI\Clover\ACPI\Patched folder for your USB ports OR have the the "change EC0 to EC" ACPI patch enabled then the installer won't boot and will panic.

Also, its best to install on either a USB 2.0 port or a USB 2.0 stick as USB 3.0 is temperamental
