The table below summarizes the various options available as of the release of macOS 10.14.4. For more information, refer to the section For Final Cut Pro X (FCPX) and iMovie Users below.
In the table on page 1 you suggest iMacPro1,1 as a headless option (for Pro Apps) with platform ID 0x3E980003 (IGFX disabled in BIOS). I don’t understand this yet: In my configuration (with Vega 64) I am using iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS, too. But I have Internal Graphics completely disabled in BIOS and I’m using no platform ID and headless configuration at all. I am just using the Vega 64, just as the original iMac Pro does, and everything (including HEVC and H264 encoding) is working just fine. So does this suggestion only refer to RX580?

Because you have an AMD graphics card installed, it is necessary to copy Lilu and WhateverGreen to the CLOVER/kexts/Other folder in the EFI partition of the USB flash disk.

If you continue to run into problems, please compress and upload the CLOVER folder from the USB install disk.
I think you got me wrong. I am not trying to install Mojave. I already install and everything working. When I change my primary GPU to IGPU on Bios with these ig-platform-id, I cant boot.

@CaseySJ , I might have lost the beginning of this discussion , but just to follow up and confirm HS08 and HS13 are the only USB 2.0 pieces of TB ports, and then what the HS01 and HS02 mentioned in @JimSalabim question belong to?
I'll make a note to double-check this later this evening. I think I know, but I would rather fact-check myself before posting.
After some fact-checking:
  • Designare Z390 supports one front-panel USB 3.1 Gen 2 connector via the onboard F_USB31C header.
  • This header is mapped as follows:
    • USB 3.x is mapped to SS01
    • USB 2.0 is mapped to HS01, but we have disabled HS01 because of the 15-port limit. (And of course who in their right mind would want to connect a prehistoric USB 2 device to a space-age USB-C port!)
  • HS02 is not used.

Yup I did exactly that. Instead of just the row deleting though, I end up with this...

It deletes the entire device.
View attachment 398386

Going to try doing it manually in Text Mode. Will make a backup of the config first of course.

**Edit: Removed it manually in TextEdit and it seems to have worked**.
You're right...this is a major BUG in Clover Configurator.

I think you got me wrong. I am not trying to install Mojave. I already install and everything working. When I change my primary GPU to IGPU on Bios with these ig-platform-id, I cant boot.
First let me define headless mode:
  • In headless mode the iGPU will not drive a display monitor. All the motherboard video ports will be turned off, but the iGPU will be used for compute tasks such as HEVC, H.264, Quick Look, Preview.
  • In standard non-headless mode the iGPU will drive a display monitor and be used for compute tasks (HEVC, H.264, etc.).
Next, there are 2 ways to turn on the iGPU:
  • Through Clover. This is done by enabling "Inject Intel", specifying IntelGFX (0x59128086 for High Sierra), and setting ig-platform-id from the Graphics page.
  • Through WhateverGreen. This is done by specifying Devices --> Properties.
We cannot use both Clover and WhateverGreen to control the iGPU. We must choose one or the other.

You're right. For iMacPro1,1 (Xeon CPU) there is no built-in iGPU so no need for ig-platform-id. I'll update the table shortly.

Re-flash BIOS. Upgrade to F6 is not already there. Start with Load Optimized Defaults and set all BIOS parameters again. Reboot.

Re-flashing to F6 did the trick to me, thanks. Now I'm trying to get iGPU in headless mode....

In Devices --> Properties we enter these hexadecimal values in reverse byte order. So 0x3E9B0007 is entered as 07009B3E.

well well.... tha's why I can't get iGPU in headless mode... didn't have a clue about this reverse byte order thing. :eek:
