*** EDIT **** SOLVED **** weird... I tried booting a few times and had the same issue. But then I switched the USB drive to the 3.1 port instead of the 3.0 port on the MB and now for some reason it worked and I'm continuing with the post install. If anyone else runs into this problem, that might be your solution! ******

I tried searching for this error but couldn't find info on it.

As far as I know I followed this instructional to the tee, with the exception of one part which I'll detail after describing the problem.

Basic overview of the problem;
1. After successful install, at first boot of Mojave we stalled on the Wifi setup
2. Tried a reboot to see if that would help
3. After reboot, booting from Mojave brought me to a black screen with a white circle backslash symbol (no symbol) and that's as far as we get.


Detailed description;

Ran into a problem right at this section of the tutorial:

"Notice that the word "Install" is no longer present in these new names. Installation is already done, so now we choose Boot macOS from Mojave. This is the actual Mojave OS disk.
When the Welcome screen appears choose your region, your keyboard, etc. But do not sign in to iCloud at this time. Choose Setup Later instead. Signing into iCloud registers the serial number of the computer, but this serial number will change in Post-Installation, which will then result in two new systems being registered in iCloud. So skip iCloud sign-in until post-installation is done and you've rebooted after post-installation.
Now that Mojave is up and running, we need to enable all of the goodies on this motherboard, such as hot-plug Thunderbolt 3, both of the gigabit Ethernet ports, on-board Realtek audio, Broadcom Bluetooth, etc. And we also need to enable various Mojave features such as sleep, wake, Messages, FaceTime, etc. This is all accomplished in Post Installation, which begins right now..."


My error came right after selecting the region, keyboard language, and then Wifi setup. It recognized my wifi (signalling the wifi card is working?) but the screen stalled here. My wifi router sent me a push notification saying "A device called Apple iMac just connected to your home network for the first time" So clearly it did connect to wifi but the screen stalled here for a good 15 mins. I figured a reboot might help and tried this. Only now when I try to boot into Mojave (F12 at bios -> USB drive --> from clover choosing Boot Mojave OS (which is on internal SSD)) all I get is a black screen with a white circle with a backslash through it.

Any ideas on what caused this and solutions?

NOW: to the only part I know seemed different from the tutorial;

at this section:

"And no changes are needed in System Parameters. Now save the config.plist and quit Clover Configurator.
We're almost done. We need to delete AptioMemoryFix-64.efi from the CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder on the EFI partition of the USB install disk and replace it with OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi as shown in the red box below. Please download this EFI file from the bottom of this guide."


It appears like the version of Unibeast I used (9.3.0) had slightly different setup. It didn't have a driver folder called "Drivers64UEFI" I think it was just "DriversUEFI" and then "AptioMemoryFix-64.efi" didn't exist but there was something like "AptioMemoryFix.efi" which I replaced with OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi.

Also the Lilu and Whatevergreen KEXTS were in the proper file already so I left them there.

Not sure if this would have caused the issue I had, but it's worth mentioning.

My build:

MB: Gigabyte Z390 Designare
CPU: i9-9900k
GPU: MSI Aero 1080 Ti
SSD's: Samsung 970 Evo NVMe M2 Internal SSD 1tb, + 500tb (for OS)
RAM: Ballistix Sport LT 64GB Kit (16GBx4) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DIMM 288-Pin - BLS4K16G4D240FSB (Gray)
Wifi: fenvi T919 BCM94360CD Native Airport WiFi BT 4.0 1750Mbps 5GHz/2.4GHz MIMO

All thoughts and help are much appreciated! Been running into issues and I can't wait to get this up.

NOTE* Installing Mojave be cause of this issue I ran into detailed on this thread:

Is anyone else experiencing a shutdown issue in 10.15.4 along with removing the emuvariable.efi file from UEFI drivers folder assuming others have changed the msr to 0x0? The restart does work however the restart takes up to 4 minutes to actually restart after restart button was pressed clicked. The shutdown button attempts to shutdown but hangs. It goes into a deep freeze state not shutting down motherboard and display is left frozen in the process of shutting down. I don't know if this is a shiki-id boot argument related concern or a shikigva=32 issue. My current config is shikigva=32 and shiki-id=Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94. My config is setup very similar to the AMD fresh install setup config.plist in the guide.

Does anyone else experience the same issue I have or am I alone? @CaseySJ any thoughts or troubles also with shutdown and a long restart attempt process?

Hello @intothevoid,

The "no entry" symbol most likely indicates a memory allocation error. Please try this:
  • At the Clover Boot Menu, press spacebar.
  • Use arrow keys to highlight Verbose and press spacebar to toggle it on.
  • Press ESC to return to Clover Boot Menu.
  • Now try booting macOS.
  • Grab a screenshot/photo of the problem. You may upload a reduced-size image (6.3MB is a bit too much!).

Is HDR working on 10.15.4? Watching 10bit HDR movies on 10.15.3 isn't working properly. I hope this update will change it. I will update my build in days.

Hello, @szw75!
Yes, I have updated to 10.15.4 and can confirm they added the HDR support future in the display section. See
system pref->display but be aware of some buggy video play back depending on your overall setup. does your monitor/tv have hdr support if so you will see the box in displays in system pref..

I can def power off and on with my Apollo x16 and hot swap (used to also be able to with my Apollo 8 before I upgraded). My issue is with the new TB drivers and firmware NVM43 for my Titan Ridge, if I restart, the HOST light does not go off and the Apollo doesn't connect on reboot. I can power cycle it and it will turn on (hot-swap) or I can unplug/replug the cable. This used to not be an issue. Only a minor annoyance, but still...
Do you have this issue by chance?

Wow. Youtube or it never happened. :clap: Let's see a short video of this procedure: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...olt-3-i7-9700k-amd-rx-580.267551/post-2082730
Please and thank you.

Hi Casey,

I am currently running 10.15.3 on Clover 4xxx. I've been trying to search the thread but could not find a definitive answer. Should I upgrade Clover to 5xxx prior to upgrading to 10.15.4? Or can I just update WEG, AppleALC, and Lilu?

Thank you!!

The anecdotal evidence from at least 3 members here in the last day or so (including me) is that you need to upgrade to the latest Clover before updating to 10.15.4. I believe the latest version on GitHub is 5107.

Before I updated Clover, the install appeared to start just fine, but at the first (or maybe second, I don't remember) reboot the boot stalled. I booted in verbose and the stall was after the line of "+++++++++", just the same as if the memory driver wasn't working right. however, I did the clover update and all was fine.

Of course, you're welcome to try it without updating. Be sure to boot in verbose and if you have a stall you know what to do!

Problem: No MultiBeast KEXT files in /Library/Extensions/ folder after running MultiBeast in post installation step 2 of this tutorial. I don't know whether to continue with the install or troubleshoot from this point.

First attached screenshot shows my folders, second screenshot shows the step I'm at in the tutorial.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you :)
