No. Just a test system late last year. I'll install Mojave later in this week as I'm visiting family for Easter. Stay Tune. (Might be better to wait for 10.14.5 as it brings better support for AMD graphics cards like the Vegas.)Hi Stork,
I'm trying to install Mojave 10.14.4 with no luck.
With fresh install I got stuck before booting to desktop, apple logo and completed progress bar.
Have you managed to install Mojave on your Thunderball?
I just made ir work right ! Using Whatevergreen + Lilu injection, with the proper Properties Devices values. I can share it if somebody need it for this setup, just let me know. Sorry, Im working with another PC in this case, ASUS PRIME B360M-A + i7 8700+ RX 570 8gb. It is my new build.
I don't know if the GTX 650 Ti is Metal compatible which is required for Mojave. You can try to Google "GTX 650 Ti Metal compatible".Stork, Here I have a Thunderbolt build still running El Capitan. So thank you for the instructions to update to Mojave. My video card is the original 650 Ti. Will that work with Mojave or must I find a GTX 760 like you now use? The GTX 760 is hard to find these days.
@Stork, thx your solution.@olvido, and all the followers of this build thread.
Good News! Mojave 10.14.4 install OK with one minor surprise which was overcome with MultiBeast config install and reboot. Even the Thunderbolt 1 to Firewire 800 works. So, let's get started...
Warning! Make sure your graphics card is Metal compatible, and, if it's a Nvidia graphics card, you will not be able to update to Mojave as Nvidia has not released drivers for Mojave. (Nvidia and Apple must be having "get along issues".) However, you can run older Nvidia GTX 760 & 770 graphics cards with Apple's native graphic drivers. This why Thunderball now has an EVGA GTX 760.
Hi @Stork, thanks for the extensive comment. I agree, I stay away before 10.x.4. Been busy taking care of mother in-law on visit. No time for fun with the Hackintosh. Will read up on Post#1028 and hope for your upgrade story at your summer residence.@nick_sthlm, I tend to wait for the 10.x.3 update to upgrade any production system to the latest macOS. This is from my experience with MacOS since 10.0.0 as I've found the 10.x.3 fixes all the major bugs.
On MyHero II I've started using AppleALC for audio rather than the Realtek ALCxxx audio kexts as it doesn't require me (and you) to run MultiBeast after each update. The good news is that, should/when you install Mojave, MultiBeast for Mojave now uses AppleALC exclusively instead of the Realtek ALCxxx audio kexts. Did you see the above Post #1028?
I will update Thunderball's Post#1 before the end of the month. Thunderball is located at our Summer residence to which we will be shortly traveling. Hopefully, Mojave 10.14.5 will be out by then as reports indicate that it supports AMD Vega 56/64 and Radeon VII graphics cards.
Speaking of graphics cards, I've noticed @nick_sthlm that you have a GTX 670. Check your About This Mac > System Report > Hardware > Graphics/Displays to see if the GTX 670 has Metal support. If not, you'll need a graphics card with Metal support for your system to run Mojave. I picked up several used GTX 760/770 graphics cards which have both Metal support and native support for Mojave. Newer Nvidia cards require Nvidia drivers which do not exist for Mojave and probably won't ever be available for 10.14+ macOS.
