Is this build possible to build with a i9-9900K?
What do you mean by “blocked inside the Clover menu”? Does the Clover menu appear? Note that enabling the -1 checkbox will bypass the Clover Boot Menu and go straight to the Apple logo (boot process), but this can be interrupted by pressing any key before the Apple logo appears.
After solved hardware issues to access BIOS settings I found the persistent "Couldn't allocate runtime area" error in the USB installer. I tried to build the USB with both methods: installer media script and Unibeast. Both with Mojave and Catalina, with same results. I’m focused now in the most tested Mojave OS installation. This is my build setup:
Gygabyte Z390 Designare. Firmware F8
Sapphire Radeon RX580 Nitro+
Corsair vengeance RGB pro 3600Mh (2 x 8 GB)
Corsair RM750 PS
All the time I followed this post guide for “Create USB Install Disk”, the spoiler for Unibeast, the spoiler for modifying config.plist, the spoiler for set BIOS up (F8 firmware) and, optionally, the post installation steps. It is remarkable that “OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi” and “slide=0” are present in their places. Also, I tried to disable slide=0 in Clover interface (spacebar + disable KASRL). In this case, there is no allocate runtime area error, but the startup process ends in a screen with prohibited sign.
I found two differences between my workflow and this guide:
First, I can’t disable CSM (Compatibility Support Module) in the BIOS. If I do it, there is a black screen at startup.
Second, after build USB installer there is no drivers64UEFI folder at EFI/CLOVER (only “drivers” folder is present). So, I created it by hand. Is it right?
I tried with:
Both drivers + drivers64UEFI folders (See screen capture with these two folders)
Only drivers folder
Only drivers64UEFI (See screen capture with all CLOVER folder contents)
All throw "Couldn't allocate runtime area" error.
After doing all the tests that I am capable of, I need to ask for some help now. Thank you in advance!
Download the zip file from the Mini Guide, expand it and copy the files it says to the location it says.
Hello @halfbinzRun through it and great thank you. All working except the USB ports. Only picks up the USB 2.0 hub and none of my USB 3.1 ports work and lighting ports...must be missing something obvious?!
