Hello,

prepare my second Hackintosh build with the following parameters:
- MSI Z170 GAMING M5 motherboard
-CPU i3 6100
-RAM 8GB
-SSD 120GB

I installed Mojave successfully. I did not see if everything is working normally because I have a boot screen problem. I fail to automatically get to the screen where Clover shows the partitions of the hard drives. Attach a file for clarity. The installation boots to the screen I've put as a picture and stops there. I can reach the SSD partition screen only after pressing any keys on the keyboard.

Has anyone had a similar problem? I ask for your cooperation.

I apologize for my bad English.

  • First of all, add your current build Hardware to Build Signature
    • At present you have your GA-Z77-DS3H system in Profile and also in the Build Signature.
      • Remove GA-Z77-DS3H from Build Signature
      • and add your current Specs MSI Z170 GAMING M5 motherboard-CPU i3 6100-RAM 8GB-SSD 120GB to replace
  • After Mojave Installation on your SSD, did you install CLOVER & needed kexts in its EFI Partition's EFI Folder and edit its config.plist?
    • Most newbies use Multibeast for Mojave for the above step.
      • Did you run MB on the new Mojave SSD? or
      • Did you install Clover Efi Manually, adding required kexts in CLOVER/kexts/Other and needed EFI files in CLOVER/drivers64UEFI and Edit config.plist?
  • Based on the uploaded CBM screen without any Icons , I think:
    • Either you have not Installed any CLOVER on the macOSMojave SSD and ejected your macOSMojave USB Installer during reboot Or
    • Ran Multibeast but did not make sure if it has added all the needed EFI files, especially "Aptio-Fixes" to EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI
  • If the above is true, my advice:
  • Reboot using your macOSMojave USB Installer and from CBM Screen boot your Mojave SSD back to the Mojave Desktop and copy USB's "Good EFI Folder" and paste and replace the "Bad EFI Folder" of macOSMojave SSD
  • If you need the steps to 'mount; the hidden EFI Partition of macOSMojave USB using Clover Configurator, on the Desktop to navigate to EFI>EFI>CLOVER, read the bulleted steps from #4

Hello cmn699,

I added the configuration in my signature.
I read what you wrote. I added more drivers to EFI / CLOVER / drivers64UEFI, but unfortunately I did not fix the problem.

I'm sending the whole EFI folder asking for advice on what to fix in it.

Thanks in advance.

  • Major issue I noted is a conflicting :AptioFixes ..." in your EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI".
  • I would suggest to remove "OSX AptioFix2Drv-64.efi " and using AptioMemoryFix-64.EFI
  • If that still causes the "missing System Disk" , try removing AptioMemoryFix-64.EFI and putting back the previously removed one.
  • You may have to try other AptioFix EFIs until you find the best match for your system
  • I have uploaded all edited Screen shots with annotations for you to try in other parts of CLOVER and config.plist SECTIONS.
Edited to emphasize: There could only be ONE AptioFix... . More than one causes Conflict.

Hello cmn699,

I want to thank for your guidance. Once I've made the improvements, the system starts up much faster.

I tried to boot the system with AptioMemoryFix-64.efi, with OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi and with OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi
With OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi, the system does not start. With the other two drivers, I think the software behaves in the same way.
Unfortunately, I still have the problem described in the first post. Do you have other suggestions?

I noticed I had a problem with:
- the sound card (after installing the drivers from Multubeast, I have a device but I hear only low-frequency sound);
- hibernate of the system.

Attach the EFI folder to the latest fixes to check again.

Thanks in advance.

  • Since you have tried all commonly used AptioFix and still got the boot problem I suggest copy and paste of the unzipped file OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi I am uploading in EFI/CLOVER/driver64UEFI folder.
  • After this problem Is solved , I will try to help you with your Audio issue.

  • For Audio Troubleshoot, I want you to upload screen Captures***** of :
    • Apple>AboutThisMac>System Report>Hardware> Audio
    • Apple >System Preferences...>Sound and
      • Click tab Input and Screen Capture
      • Click tab Output Screen Capture
  • Download, install and launch DPCI Manager:version 1.5 of DPCIManager
    • Open Status tab: and take. screen Capture to upload.
***** Screen Capture in Mac

  • Open the screen to view
  • Press Windows key (CMD) , Shift key and 4 (not F4)
  • A Cross Hair Mouse Cursor will show up
  • Click Left Mouse button at the top Left Corner of Screen of Interest and Drag the CrossHair to Right Lower Corner to enclose a Rectangle Screen of interest.
  • Release the mouse button to drop the screen Capture on the Desktop.

Hello cmn699,

I tried the driver that you sent me (OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi) but without success again.
If there is no solution I will be reconciled by the fact that I must manually transfer the Clover boot to Clover GUI screen.
I send the photos to the screens:
-Apple>AboutThisMac>System Report>Hardware> Audio
-Apple >System Preferences...>Sound (Input and Output tabs)
-DPCI Manager (Status tab).

Thanks again
