Hello! I use i7-3960x +R4E! According to your tutorial Settings, the machine works fine! But there is a legacy issue Cannot overpass frequency, can only switch back and forth between 1200M-3300M! Is there any way to correct it?
I've tried regenerating the SSDT from your tutorial, but the effect is the same: you can't overdrive or multiscale.
Now I upload my efi file, please check it for me!
Here is my boot.log file!

OK!I solved!

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\xFF\x0F\x84\x2D|\xFF\x0F\x85\x2D|g' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement;

Hi again everyone!

After playing with "Dark Mode" on my MacBook, I became addicted. So I am testing 10.14 Mojave using a separate SSD drive on my trusty old 3930k Hackintosh.

It went pretty well so far. What I did:
-----------------
INITIAL INSTALLATION
-----------------
1) Since I have been on 10.12, and there is no way to get APFS support, I decided to install from my MacBook. I booted the MacBook up in recovery mode and connected the new SSD externally in a USB-3 enclosure. I formatted the disk using GUID and APFS. Then I installed 10.14. I went ahead and set up a user on first boot (still running on the MacBook).
2) I downloaded the newest Clover and installed on the external USB drive.
NOTE: Above steps could be done the usual way with a USB stick that has the apfs.efi installed; but I was lazy and had the MacBook handy.
-----------------
FIX UP CLOVER - copying files from my old working 10.12 clover EFI
-----------------
3) I mounted the EFI partition using "EFI Mounter V3" app and copied all the kexts from /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12 to /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.14 (AppleIntelE1000e.kext, FakeSMC.kext, and realtekALC.kext).
4) I copied missing drivers:
/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI
OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi
OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi
apfs.efi <- downloaded the appropriate 10.14 version of this
5) I copied missing config files:
/CLOVER/
config.plist
/CLOVER/OEM/SystemProductName/
config.plist
/CLOVER/OEM/SystemProductName/UEFI/
config.plist
-----------------
FIRST BOOT ON HACKINTOSH
-----------------
6) At the Clover screen I booted with nv_disable=1 and also -v
7) Once booted up in low resolution, I ran shilohh's trusty AGDPfix and rebooted.

Now I am running my dual displays at full resolution with Metal support in Mojave! It has actually been very stable! Next I need to fix my audio and SpeedStep.

I didn't have any luck using the newest version of the audio script from shilohh's guide. It runs but I have no audio.

Now I have to figure out how to get the very basic SpeedStep I use running (I'm basically running 4.2Ghz without much stepping). At the moment I seem to be locked at 3.2Ghz on all cores. Unfortunately I cannot use the full power management setup shiloh uses because my particular 3930k CPU causes crashes when the speed/voltage drops too far...but is 100% stable as long as that never happens. Oh well, at least I can switch back to full speed 10.12 at any time by just swapping SSD drives.

I have been messing around with creating SSDT files; but am pretty rusty. I included my EFI partition (EFI.zip) in case anyone wants to look it over.

This won't be my main system until I can figure out these issues; but it's cool to try!

Hello guys
I have one question to you: I have the configuration (R4E + i7 4930 + GTX1080) that upgraded to HS recently - and sleep stopped to work (or works partially: screen goes black but motherboard/fans are still power on). Does anyone with sleep working could share config or pointing me where to debug this problem?

Regards and TIA
Pawel

Just a quick follow up to my 10.14 upgrade post:

I have SpeedStep working great by using the enclosed kexts from 10.13.6. They are patched using the same technique in my 10.12 upgrade post. Just install them using your favorite kext installer utility and you are set.

I have upgraded to 10.14.1. After fixing my serial number I have even have full Messages support. Mojave in dark mode really rocks!

Warning: This is great if you have a Mojave supported GPU like my GTX 680; but not so great if you do not.

Congratulation on getting Mohave running MK500!

I'm having issues getting up to High Sierra from Sierra. The installer worked fine but I'm having bootloader issues. Sometimes I can get into High Sierra but often the system just reboots and refuses to boot in HS. I've tried multiple variations of EFI and non of them are consistent.

Could someone post the image of their EFI in High Sierra?
I'm on a R4BE, i7-4930k, GTX 980ti.

Thanks!

Give this a go, works ok here, currently getting Mojave working.

Thanks for your reply, Blindfitter!

I finally was able to resolve my bootloader issue by removing a conflicting SMC kext, system now boots fine!
I'm still curious to see a "proper" EFI partition though, I might have too many Drivers64 UEFI and kexts installed.
Mine is attached.

Thanks for the help!

Hi, Here you go for comparison, ? why have you doubled up kexts in 10.13 and other, you haven't got them doubled again in S,L,E.

have now got Mojave running on most apps, will when fully done up date here, used MK500 idea of loading Mojave onto separate ssd then transferring to x79 and going from there, some updated kexts and drivers and it's running ok.

Funny how different systems require different kexts. My system goes into kernel panic and reboot loop if I use Lilu.kext. Totally had to remove it. I'm now running a leaner EFI kext list, closer to MK500 above. It is slow to boot but runs fine afterwards. I feel there's probably a kext causing the issue in S/L/E. I didn't think the system could run without the GenericUSBXHCI but it doesn't seem to need it.

You need to right click on the EFI folder and select compress. That way it will upload.
