I have the same motherboard with the 8700K i7 and no matter what I do, the install always crashes with two minutes to go. I've used the @backwardmac EFI files, tried both High Sierra and Mojave, removed and replaced kexts, removed the video card, etc. to no avail. Any ideas what I'm missing? Everyone else is working on getting audio to work or USB 3.0 and I can't get past the installer...

Never mind. Turns out I'm just not patient. Didn't know that the install involves several restarts...

Hello,

I just finished installing Mojave 10.14.2 on this motherboard (Bios F10) using the CLOVER file provided by @backwardmac, specifically due to the fact that he has also F10 BIOS and has the DSDT pathched.

I'm having weird issues after I boot. Sometimes it works without issues but most of the time I get artefacts (random lines) on the screen and it usually stops responding after a few seconds.

I use the Radeon GFX card via HDMI.

@backwardmac no worries ended up getting everything working on Mojave... just finished a smooth update to 10.14.2. Thanks for this post!

Hi Vlad.s
You'r issue can come from my smbios which is a mix of iMac and MacPro (just to have the Hackintosh recognize as MacPro over Bonjour.) You should try smbios iMac 18.2 or something more "clover friendly".

Hi Arnehuo,
Absolutely no idea, I have a Broadcom card (not the same as you) by PCI and no issue at all.

@backwardmac thanks for the reply but I also tried with High Sierra 10.13.6 and multiple types of smbios's (iMac 18.1, 18.3 etc.) and the graphics glitch & freeze persists.

I'll upload my EFI folder when I get home and I'll put the link to the YouTube video of the glitch.

Hi vlad.s
Sounds like frequency or buffer issue. Is your screen using 4k over hdmi?

Hello backwardmac,

No. It's an "old" LG 3D 27'' FHD Monitor. I was using the DVI-HDMI cable but I switched to another LG FHD monitor which is using an HDMI input and it's the same.
