@xmark @inarush Today I spent one hour with F11 BIOS, but no luck. Hack doesn't want to boot with F11. I tried a lot of different options…

Thanks a lot :thumbup: But OMG they've updated again :rolleyes: ... so much work to do (try BIOS, upgrade OSX, kexts, Clover) I need a holiday!

WTF :) Ok, I will try it today.

If I go back to my high sierra boot disk, all is working as expected. Has anyone experienced this or have an idea of something special required for mojave?

Edit: I upgraded bios to F10 to match the github guide, and the first boot, the disks showed up. Subsequent reboots only show two disks...

Are you talking about internal disks? Check Disk Utility. Maybe macOS didn't mount them correctly.

Yes, internal spinning rusk disks. I have 4 x SATA on the motherboard and 2 x SATA on a PCI-E card.

It is not an issue of mounting, the disks do not show up in diskutil list.

I looked again and in fact, the two disks on the PCI-E card show up, but the motherboard SATA ports do not.

That said, I have had two random occurrences where Mojave has loaded all the disks. Rebooting with the same config and they do not reappear.

Edit: On my High Sierra the disks are connected to "Intel 10 Series" but this does not show on my Mojave install, which shows "Intel 20 Series" and no disks attached.

Where do I go from here?

Unfortunately, I don't have so many drives to replicate your setup. But there are some options in BIOS for SATA drives. Did you try it?

Can you confirm what controller your disks show up as being connected to under System Report? Intel 10 Series or Intel 20 Series Chipset?

In the BIOS there are not many options to play with...

Where should it be? Can't see any info in SATA/SATA Express tab. Probably because I don't have any SATA drives now. Only M.2 PCIe card.

Made some updates this weekend:
BT and WiFi work without any kexts! And finally, my Bluetooth keyboard works in Clover, BIOS and during FileVault login. Here are the BCM94360CS2 WiFi/BT drivers for Windows (was very hard to find...)
