This was surprisingly the easiest macOS Mojave Installation I have had. I have been following a lot of forum posts on Intel 300 Series Chipset Motherboards and Intel CoffeeLake Processors with Intel HD 630 having numerous problems requiring hours and days of troubleshoot to install and fix post install problems.

Over the holidays , I got the following Hardware as a gift and decided Yesterday to assemble the System in a Rosewill Nautilus ATX Mid Tower case.
MoBo: GA-Z370P D3
CPU: Intel i5-8600K LGA1151
with Integrated Intel HD 630 [ONLY VGA|DVI|HDMI ports , NO DP]
Graphics: Intel HD 630 (
Intend to add a PCIE Graphics later. Not decided about Make and Model)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 MHz 2x8GB =16GB
WiFi+BT: fenvi FV-T919 1300Mbps 2.4/5GHz BT.4.0 PCIE
PSU: EVGA 850 G2
Monitor: Acer SB220Q
(has only VGA and HDMI no DVI or DP ports)
Keyboard and Mouse: Logitech MK270 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo
USB Flash disk for Mojave Installer: Silicon Power USB 2.0 16GB.
Hard disk for Mojave: Western Digital WD 5000AUDX SATA Spin disk


  • I have previously downloaded and saved macOS Mojave 10.14.2 (18C54) in another Hack .
  • I created a new Installer Specifically customized for my chosen hardware on the Flash disk Partitioned in GUID and Formatted in HFS+J in my Hackintosh.
  • I used install media command :
    sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled && echo Mojave Drive Created
  • I manually installed Clover EFI and edited its contents as shown in the uploaded EFI_Clover Tree and config.plist Screen Captures.
  • My BIOS Options are shown in the uploaded images.
    • NOTE: This board DOES NOT have the option to choose "Other OS" under BIOS Tab. The default Windows 8/10 works OK.
    • CSM Support must be DISABLED for INTEL HD 630 Graphics and ENABLED for MSI RX560 PCIE Graphics
  • After Saving (F10) chosen BIOS options including Mojave UEFI USB Installer as First boot device, F12 Screen showed USB installer as the only device and booted to Clover Boot Manager without any KP
  • I checked Options and Sub-menu including Boot, PCI and Graphics Injector to make sure my edited config.plist options are duplicated there, for a smooth boot.[See images.]
  • The Verbose boot was watched with Camera ready to capture well-known land marks for smooth boot and to capture any fatal errors . [Sample Normal verbose screens are uploaded.]
  • After Verbose boot ended the Gui boot with Apple logo began and without any untoward event, opened the macOS Utilities screen
  • Using Disk Utility >View >Show All Devices located the target WD 500AUDX and Erased it choosing APFS in GUID Partition Map
  • Erase was uneventful and the Install MacOS was chosen with License agreement to start installation on target WD disk.
  • For the first time in a long time, it took only 8 minutes to reach the remaining 2 Minutes mark and in 30-40 seconds later the expected sudden boot to CBM occurred.
  • Since I had edited my config.plist _Gui to hide "Preboot" my CBM screen was 'lean and clean looking" to select the System disk to continue with second stage of booting.
  • The second stage lasted for about 16 minutes and then rebooted at "less than a few seconds remaining" to CBM
  • At CBM, the expected 3 icons : The USB installer, the System Disk and Recovery Disk icons showed up.
  • Final boot of System Disk after verbose phase went to Apple logo and quickly to Welcome >Country Selection and other usual screens in sequence.
  • After a smooth sail, the new Desktop was entered and Keyboard Assistant prompted to select the language KB of choice.
  • Surprisingly this time I dint have to Reset the Time Zone and TIME.
  • I set up the Finder >Preferences for easy navigation of connected disks and brought needed Apps icon to Dock while removing the ones I don't frequently use
  • I launched the Terminal to run sudo spctl command to Enable downloading of non-mac Apps I need by setting the Security to (o) Anywhere (See image)
  • Since the EFI of my USB installer is customized for this hardware, all I had to make the system disk bootable was to remove its Dummy EFI and copy and paste the one from USB installer's EFI folder after mounting the EFI partition on the desktop.
  • On reboot everything worked OK including, Video, Audio, Ethernet, WiFi and BT.
Hope the uploaded images will tell the whole story in the right sequence.

Some owners of 8th Gen Core CPUs have posted screenshots in which the iGPU device ID appears to be 3E98, which I thought was exclusive to the 9th Gen. Your "Graphics/Displays" screenshot shows device ID 3E92, which sounds right. Because there are still a fair number of 8th Gen owners of 370 chipsets reporting Black Screens with their iGPUs, I'm curious if your successful out-of-box result is due to the specific arrangement of video ports on this motherboard: VGA, DVI, HDMI, but no DP.

And you didn't even have to switch to OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000...

In other words, I wonder how widely applicable your build procedure is to owners of other motherboards with the same 370 chipset and 8th Gen CPU, but those owners should certainly pay attention to this guide.

Thank you for interest and pithy comments on my Post.

As I stated at the outset, this is my very first 300 -series Hackintosh. I started the build with a lot of apprehension preparing myself for a one week's project. But I was pleasantly surprised I had a brand new Mojave in less than 6 hours and a day later a dual-boot System. By the end of the day, I expect Linux too in that PC.

Since I have not worked hands-on with different 300 Series boards, I am unable to say why I had a very easy ride with a randomly selected hardware I received as a gift.

I wanted to provide as many details about my hardware and the used build-steps as possible to have a data base in the Forum for folks like you to take a critical look and others less sophisticated to easily duplicate the steps on the same hardware or one which is very close using the illustrations as a visual guide. I have not posted it as a GUIDE and let it to the Forum Admin to decide if the post meets their standard. I have taken a lot more images but the Forum has a 100 images upload limit I have to respect in my post.

Hi, Good work. I only need some clarification in the section "Kernel and Kext Patches" in Clover Configurator. In the left panel, there are not visible drivers... com.apple.driver.A.... ? Can you enlight me? Thanks in advance.

@cmn699, this is good information. Too bad the Mojave Install User Guide doesn't contain more detailed info; I think it would help rookies like myself, gain a better overall understanding of what all is involved to complete a successful install. It wasn't more than a week ago you were mentioning to me that my 300 series mobo might be a "beast to tame". You aced the test, I'm still a work in progress. Since we both have the same mobo manufacturer, albeit different models (high end vs low end), I'm assuming that "some" of the bios parameters might be constant. Since your build did not contain a video card, we're both dependent on the integrated HD 630 graphics. You selected in Peripherals the Initial Display Output as: IGFX, whereas I have PCIe 1 Slot. I wanted to test to see what would happen if I made the same selections as you re: the video options. When I did, my build failed to boot. Not wanting to take a step backward, i.e. an unbootable Mojave system, I reset my bios back to what it was. This got me thinking, what is the correct procedure to address items that need tweaked? I'm thinking that the bios change mentioned, would have also required a change to the MacHDD EFI Config.plist as well. If you change a bios setting that may also require a plist change, do you use a USB EFI plist as the source to test whether the build will boot? I'm trying to understand how corrections are made w/o ending up with a non working Mojave desktop. I feel lucky that I currently have a somewhat working Mojave desktop. I have yet to use Clover Configurator to apply any changes. To wrap up, if the mobo's are same and similar, can some of the bios selections be the same, and if so, this also means that some associated plist selections should be the same as well. One step at a time.

Thanks for any sage advice.

I'm hoping you have a clue as to what is causing my build to auto reboot by itself. I've been following your Intel 300 Series Chipset Motherboards guide to tweak my build. The only item to date Ive tried to improve upon is the Integrated Intel HD 630 graphics. During initial Mojave install, I kept the default option in the BIOS peripherals "Initial Display Output" as PCIe 1 Slot. Upon successful install, the Mojave System Report showed the Graphics/Displays as "Intel UHD Graphics 630", with a Device ID of 0x1234 and Vendor ID as 0x5678. This option works on either HDMI port, but would only work on the port where the cable was inserted during boot, meaning, if I switched the cable to the other port after boot, the video output did not work, unless I rebooted whereby the new port would be recognized. To mimic your setup, I changed the Devices IntelGFX setting to 0x0 (blank), changed the BIOS setting to IGFX, then rebooted. When the system came up, I would only have video if the HDMI cable was plugged into the 60 Hz (HDR) port. The video seems greatly improved with this setting. The problem which is baffling to me, if the system is left unattended for 15 minutes or so, the screen will go blank (no video source), then an auto reboot occurs w/o any user input. Ive looked at my System Preferences and turned off all Energy Saving options, screensavers, etc. Do you know why the reboot might be happening? Since then, Ive reverted back to the original 0x1234 settings. I've attached screen shots showing the Plist settings and System Reports. Hope you have a clue as to what is happening b/c I feel I'm not taking advantage of the full HD 630 graphics.

Thanks for any assistance!
