My Atheos Wifi PCI-e Card is not working - must look for a new one for Mojave

Greetings from Vienna

Thank you! I have similar hardware and am planning to do the install this weekend. I have been looking through this forum to ensure someone was successful before I start upgrading hardware. I'll probably need to update the graphics card, but have a spare somewhere around. I'll post my results when complete.

What is the reason for boot0: error if not using a large drive? I have tried two different 16GB USB drives, one Corsair and one Kingston. Both created from Unibeast 9.1 and neither will work.

You cannot get the boot:0 error if you boot with Clover therefore the obvious conclusion is that you are not.

STEP 3: Recommended BIOS Settings

  1. If you have a 6 series or x58 system with AWARD BIOS, disable USB 3.0

Does that mean that USB 3.0 cannot work on a 6 series MB on Mojave? Or rather that USB 3.0 needs to be fixed/patched post-install?

(asking for my current "maggie" signature build)

Damn! :banghead: Thank you for your help anyway :)
So it's gonna be USB2.0 only, I guess...

Can you explain why? Or share links towards explanations that a noob like me could unnderstand?

Thanks again :)
Best,

My Gigabyte Z68 mATX motherboard is completely un-bootable with USB 3 ports enabled in the BIOS. That's all the research I needed to do. You can always add a USB 3.0 card by Inateck installed in the PCIe x1 slot. A simple low cost solution. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JFR2H64/?tag=tonymacx86com-20
OK...
In my case when USB3.0 is enabled boot fails (screen with Apple error message in multiple languages) and then the machine reboots. at the second boot it reaches the login screen normally and the machine works. I didn't test yet if USB3.0 ports are functional/not functional and what speed they get if they are functional.

IDK if the Z68AP has a different USB 3.0 controller than my Z68MA but I'm pretty sure they won't work in HS or Mojave. Let us know what you find out.

It seems I get USB3.0 speed on the ports that work but not all of them work.
This might be important for 6-series MB owners and the recomendations on the OP of this thread. I will thus create a new thread. Please have a look at it :)

best,
