Hello everyone @moosh this is still rebooting even with the SMBIOS 19.1. Don't really know why. @b166ar do you have an idea ?

Thank you :)

After several try of SMBIOS versions from Imac 17.1, Imac 19.1 and Macmini8.1, I still get a kernel panic during the boot installation.
Do you think it's only a SMBIOS problem or something can come from somewhere else ? I saw that using an USB 3 key usb can be an issue on Gigabyte Motherboard.

If anyone have an idea i'm listening :)

Thank you for you help,

Regards

Try SMBIOS 18.3 and if Mojave boots change it to 19.1 with Clover or config edit. If it does not help than your kernel panic is caused by smthg else.

You might want to try this Patch.
Probably F12 BIOS is causing your issues but because of your 9th Gen CPU you rely on it.
If that fails you might have to consider to downgrade to a 8th Gen CPU

Hello @FBelix,

I will try it when I will get a new USB key but for the Bios I don't have the F12 version but the F10 (I downgraded from F11 to F10) as my CPU is compatible with this version.

How this patch will fix my issue ? What I don't understand is that the Imac 19.1 is exactly the model of my CPU the i5 9600K this is why I don't understand why I can't boot with this version of SMBIOS.

@endrus I will try with the 18.3. What is smthg ?

Thank you for your help !

@endrus: I tried with the version 18.3 but still get a kernel panic.
@FBelix: Not working with this patch but as I have the F10 bios it is not going to help me.

As I said before and as I checked on the official website there is two version of i5 9600K the one with the P0 stepping and the other with R0 stepping. I have the P0 stepping so should be compatible with the F10 as described here :

Have you ever booted your computer to any OS?
1) For system diagnosis you can use any linux distros, run it from a USB thumbdrive e.g. Ubuntu. This case you do not have to remove any components yet. If it boots and hardware description all correct proceed to #2.
2) Yes, surely try the F12 BIOS there might be something that Gigabyte fixed. It's not difficult to flash it anyway. You find instructions on previous pages here.
3) Make sure your BIOS settings are all correct.
