Hi ereryone,

I have a storage problem.
Will it work on this motherboard if I install Mojave on PCIe NVme M.2 SDD(system drive) and use 4 SATA HDD for data storage?


I would like to build a similar hackintosh

I got everything up and running by following your instructions to the letter. Much thanks!
Note: I added my NMVe to the one with the heat sink and used MacMan's Multibeast configuration, so it's showing iMac 19,1 with the 9700K.
I set up my last Hackintosh nearly 5 years ago, so I apologize for the stoopid question:
Is further SSDT tweaking necessary?

@MacMan Have you updated this build to Catalina yet?

I did the Apple store update and now get to a blank screen just prior to logging in. Wondering if you had any thoughts?
No, I'm away on vacation.

Hey @MacMan, thanks a lot for this guide. It was great help, as with many more things in this community. Got it working very fast thanks to all your observations.

It's a great build! just make sure you use an HDMI connection at this point if installing Catalina - Displayport is a problem
By your post, I guess you already updated to Catalina. Any observations beside HDMI and DisplayPort issue you mention. I'm using HDMI anyway and would like to update.
