Hi everyone!

I have one Hackintosh on High Sierra working flawless and I’m trying to build new one on Mojave, main parts are:
- i5-8400
- MSI H310M PRO M2
- Intel iGPU UHD 630
(Correct me if I’m wrong but I think rest is irrelevant)

But damn, I have nothing but issues with it:
- sound is not working
- two display are only mirrored, recognised as one 31.5” with no option to extend screens
- even managing to install Mojave was pain but after many tries I figured working plist config.

So I’ll probably replace motherboard and I’m looking for the cheapest, well-proven working coffee lake mobo (especially dual screen and sound) with m2 slot.

I thought of Gigabyte H370M DS3H, I saw one topic with working audio and one not working. But don’t know about dual screens. That around is my budget.

Do you have any suggestions? Or maybe see something I could change in my EFI?

Thanks in advance!

Please make a backup of your existing, working EFI folder so that you can revert to it if anything goes wrong.

Please try this EFI. (I'm assuming you are on macOS 10.14.4)
