I have been using Macs for quite a long time, and previously had a MacBookPro early 2012, an iMac 15" and a PPC G5. My main idea with the build, was a development machine to experiment with Linux, openBSD and Windows on one machine but separate disk drives.
Since I´m too old for neon light and big cases, I wanted to put all the components in the smallest possible case.Streacom F1C EVO WS was an obvious choice, as it had room for 3 drives. I could install the 1151 socket CPU as well. Installation Notes Most of this guide is copied directly from this build:
I do have a few edits (removed FakeSMC, etc.) and added download instructions for Mojave. For this guide keep in mind that I am running MacOS Mojave 10.14.1, and I have tested only this version of Mac OS. I hope that if anyone would like to create the same build, this guide will hopefully make things easier for them.
Downloading and Preparing
Step 1. Download macOS Mojave
I downloaded the Mojave Installer app from the App Store.
Step 2: Create a bootable USB drive with UniBeast
These steps are coming from another guide (see link). https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...on-200-series-with-kabylake-processor.218494/
Files To Download
You need to download some files to get things work. These files are necessary for the entire session of the macOS installation.
- MultiBeast, latest version
- UniBeast, latest version
- Clover Configurator, latest version
Before start installing modify BIOS settings.
Step 4: Install macOS Mojave
Be patient and let the Clover magic work. Ensure that you reboot to the install USB until Mojave is finished installing. Then reboot to the USB but now choose the new MAC disk as the boot disk on the Clover screen
Step 5: Post installation with MultiBeast
So, after the installation (Step 4) we have to run MultiBeast 9.* (use latest release of the tool)
In System Definition for the i5 4500K we must choose iMac 14.2 which is the default for the Quick Start choices.
After all this we hit Build and Install.
After all these steps it's time to reboot. Remember in BIOS to choose your hard drive for boot.
