Hey,
i just installed Mojave on my machine using this tutorial:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...nare-z390-thunderbolt-3-with-i7-9700k.267551/

I got to the desktop of mojave but when i shut down and reboot the machine without the usb drive (and even with it) it doesnt boot and says this version of osx is not supported on this platform (see image) followed by a shutdown. So the only way to get back to the desktop is reinstalling everything:(

Does anyone know what to do?


Btw i m using the smbios macmini 8,1 profile like the gentleman in the tutorial if that helps. And was wondering if i can just use the serial numbers clover configurator provides in the application or whether i have to replace them with real ones from a real existing apple computer?

Appreciate any help!

My setup:
Asus Z390-A
i7 8700K
Vega 56 Strix OC
Samsung Evo NVME

Mac-7BA5B2DFE22DDD8C is a Macmini8,1 and it is telling you that the version of the OS that you are attempting to install is not supported on a Macmini8,1.
Change the SMBIOS info in your config.plist to something that is supported.

The implication is that you are installing 10.14.0 which does not support Macmini8,1.
Use SMBIOS iMac14,2 to install, then update the OS to 10.14.2.
You will then be able to use Macmini8,1 if you wish.

Alternatively download 10.14.2 and recreate your UniBeast installer with that.
