I built this build about a year ago now and it's been rock-solid, so thank you for that. The only difference is I went with the 580 instead of the Vega. After not updating it (I built it when 10.13.4 was current), I now have the need to update it to at least 10.13.6 and potentially current Mojave.
I made a backup of my boot drive with CCC and attempted to update to 10.13.6 through App Store. OS X says it would reboot and install the update, so I click Reboot. Apps close, Finder closes, and the GUI goes away and it stops at a black screen with a mouse cursor, which I can move, and stays there forever. If I press any key on the keyboard OS X plays the error sound. The computer continues to run; I can ssh into it but running top and fs_usage shows that just normal daemon processes are running like mds, lsd, and backupd. It stays there as long as I leave it. If I reset the machine it'll just boot back into 10.13.4.
I downloaded the 10.13.6 Combo update. It runs an installer and then says it needs to reboot to finish installation. When I click Reboot the same thing happens, and resetting it boots back into 10.13.4.
I went so far as to download the Mojave installer and it does the exact same thing.
Did you ever run into this? Or is this a known issue with this build or with Hackintoshes in general? If I can't fix it, do you think I should just be able to format, install Mojave with Unibeast, and move your latest EFI over?
Thanks for the great build and any help you or others can provide.
You need to update the EFI folder.
- Backup your current EFI folder to the EFI partition of your CCC clone.
- Replace the EFI folder you are currently using with EFI r4.5.3 attached to post #1.
- Upgrade to latest version of Mojave.
