anyone know why my unibeast isn't creating a efi partition?
  • I have edited your image and one from my system to show why you could not see the "Hidden EFI Partition" nor locate its CLOVER
  • I can see you had launched CCG and clicked on "Mount EFI" from its Left Panel but probably did not click "Mount Partition" from the Right Panel and then typed your password to mount the USB's EFI Partition on the Desktop to navigate and locate CLOVER.
    • You can see how the "Mount Partition" will become Faded if you click on it and then type the password and the White EFI Partition of USB will be placed on the Desktop

Yes, but that is the EFI that’s on my actual iMac’s hard drive... not the installation flash drive

  • If that is the case , what was the reason for you to upload that image stating you could not find the EFI Partition?
    • Please note we have no way to see your Monitor screen
    • We have no way to know what you are thinking or what you meant.
      • We have to rely entirely on the text and images you post on your threads to connect and come to a logical conclusion.
    • Please re-read your post from the very beginning. It might make perfect sense to you because you know a lot more background information about all of that which you have not shared with the readers.
    • For the readers of your post, it is as "jumbled up" as the first screen shot you had posted!
  • I was about to check the EFI.zip you had uploaded @ #18
    • In the very next thread you wrote NVM indicating it was from 10.13.X!
  • Now you say about your thread #20
    Yes, but that is the EFI that’s on my actual iMac’s hard drive... not the installation flash drive
  • Is your problem with an existing macOS Mojave on a System Disk or using a macOSMojave Installer USB Disk to install macOS Mojave on a New Hard Disk?
  • If the problem booting is with a macOS Mojave Installer USB you have created, what method did you use to create it?
  • If you have used Unibeast 9.0 [a software to transfer Install Mojave from Applications folder of a Mac or Working Hackintosh to a GUID Partitioned and HFS+J formatted Flash disk of 16GB (or more) followed by installing Clover EFI version in it to the USB Installer's previously created EFI Partition that has FAT32 File System and hidden from view soon after its creation by Disk Utility of Real Mac /Hackintosh] you can still find its EFI using CCG using the bulleted steps in the link provided at #4
  • Why don't you insert your macOS Mojave installer you have difficulty booting to a real Mac and using CCG find its EFI Partition and mount the EFI Partition on the Desktop and navigate and locate its CLOVER folder, zip it and Attach to your post indicating that it is from your non-booting maCOS Mojave Installer Flash Disk?
  • Usual causes for non- booting disk are:
    • macOS in it is corrupt
    • Its CLOVER is not edited properly
    • The BIOS options chosen are wrong
  • To get help, inform the Forum about the source of macOS , and the method used to create the disk
  • Provide CLOVER from the Disk as a zipped file
  • Provide the full list of BIOS choices or screen shots
  • If you are not providing ALL of the above, nobody can really get any clue to the cause of the problem to help you or you will see pages of trials based on hit or miss tips or abandoned problems out of frustrations as can be seen in this and other Forums to mislead help seekers who find them on search!
