High Sierra has gotten sluggish with time. Mojave boots up fairly quick. Since you've backed up your HS drive, I'd try to install Mojave "over" High Sierra. Create the Mojave USB installation thumb drive with UniBeast for Mojave and put MultiBeast for Mojave on it. Now, install Mojave like it's a fresh install. (Note: After the install, which takes several reboots, you'll be asked to log into iCloud. Don't do it. Wait until after the MultiBeast installation.) Run MultiBeast for Mojave as you did for HS. (Unfortunately, I haven't updated to Mojave on MyHero since it is at our Summer house, and I'm still waiting for Spring to occur in Northern Michigan, USA.) Take a look at MyHero II build for an example of what to do with MultiBeast in Mojave.So I am ready to take the plunge to replace High Sierra with Mojave on my main rig (ASUS Z170 / I7 6770K / Sapphire Pulse RX 580). Of course I already have a backup of my data ( which is installed on a separate SSD anyway ).
I want to erase my system disk so as to do a fresh install of Mojave ( reason why is that since 3 years , I have been updating with High Sierra releases, and installing various programs, and I note that the startup time of my Hack has increased over time ). So I hope that a fresh install will improve things. ( Any idea about that by the way ?).
Install 10.14.4, or, better yet, await until 10.14.5 is released which should occur with the next several weeks. The full, latest Mojave installer will be on the Apple Mac App Store. The tonymacx86 Installation Guide for Mojave is appropriate to use. Again, see MyHero II build description for an example what you'll need to do especially with your RX 580 (post MultiBeast installation)....Another couple of questions as I am a bit confused :
So I need to install the initial Mojave 10.14.1 , then, once my rig is up and running, I proceed with the 10.14.4 combo update ? Is that right? Or is there a way to download and install 10.14.4 directly ?
For such a rig , with a Mojave installation, are there any additional special steps that I need to do, apart from the ones detailed in the official Tonymac installation guide ? (with respect to Graphics / USB 3 / Graphics etc...)
Thanks for your help.
