Is there any particular reason you are using SMBIOS MacMini8,1? I'm using iMac18,1 with no problems.Thank You for your Suggestions. I implemented some of them and was successful in updating to Mojave 10.14.3
Heres what I changed:
1. Removed ALL the Clover ACPI "Default" fixes. Checked " Drop OEM DSM" and Generate Options "PluginType". Removed any SSDT generated tables from "Drop Tables" shows "DMAR" only.
Is this the best settings for power management? Too many "old" suggestions out there.
My power management works well, but always open to improvements.
2. Changed Drivers: Dropped AptioMemoryFix-64, Added AptioInputfix-64 and OSXAptioFixDrv-64.
Complete List for NON Firevault2 Drivers:
3. Kexts kept the same. I know its been suggested to put them in Library Extensions, but I have no issues with Kext loading, and the clover Kext folder has the advantages of easy simple drag and drop changes and kexts being available in SafeMode. (having ethernet is important). My List of Kexts in Clover:
FakeSMC.kext (and sensor kexts)
USBPorts.kext (Custom USB3 support for this MB made easy by HackTool)
It would be great to have input from all those that have this motherboard to get some general consensus on clover/bios/Kexts to help new adopters have success faster. Just a thought....
Thanks again for your input!
In answer to your questions, I am having NO issues with MacMini8,1. I wanted to try it as it matched my 8700 i7. Now I have software tied to this model so I'll keep it.Is there any particular reason you are using SMBIOS MacMini8,1? I'm using iMac18,1 with no problems.
Using /Library/Extensions/ as location for your kext should be an option, not a necessity, but in some cases there is no choice.. Some kext won't load unless placed in that location. Take for instance you'd want to add a WF+BT card for wireless usage.
All available cards that support NGFF atm need kext from @RehabMan repository to work properly -besides the correct USB implementation through SSDT or kext creation due to Bluetooth using a internal USB-, credits to @RehabMan for his extended insight on building the SSDT and to @headkaze for his easy to use hackintool.
So, I would suggest moving kext there. You would only need Ethernet kext in case you'd want to reinstall system from apple server in recovery, which is weird nowadays..
It would certainly help new comers with a full guide, true!
Did you achieve dual monitor boot with Intel UHD 630? I managed to make them work if plugged after wards, but not on boot
Thank you very much for the info but does this motherboard work without any problems ? What do you mean by “ Some have replaced the ASUS MB module with a macOS compatible one” ?Looks fine to me, but its all personal preferences.
As far as which MB (with or without WiFi). The MB built in WiFi/Bluetooth module doesn't work with macOS. I bought the MB with WiFi because it was cheaper and widely available at the time, then disabled it in BIOS and installed a compatible PCIe WiFi card. Some have replaced the ASUS MB module with a macOS compatible one.
It means that no motherboards except Apple's MacS are 100% compatible because parts of the hardware have no software drivers to work with macOS. The ASUS Intel Wi-Fi/Bluetooth has no macOS drivers. Most likely never will.Thank you very much for the info but does this motherboard work without any problems ? What do you mean by “ Some have replaced the ASUS MB module with a macOS compatible one” ?
