He is a bit legendary ...Jezzz. Stork, I just realized you have 6 builds from all of the ages of Intel CPUs. Definitely a dedicated person to the Hackintosh community.
... and to steal his thunder, again, doesn’t update system critical machines until version x.x.3 comes out as that’s the stage when all the bugs are ”usually” worked out.And a long time Apple user.
I'm snowbirding at the moment and won't be able to upgrade Thunderball to 10.15.3. However, from what I've learned from reading about Catalina, I will probably stick with Mojave for the Thunderball system for a while. Once MultiBeast for Catalina comes out, I'll update MyHero II and that will give an indication what's required for my other systems.
Sounds like your BIOS got reset. Do this:Now when I enter the BIOS I only have these options to boot from and all of them produce an insert bootable drive message:
- KingstonDT Ultimate G2. Note, when I started I had a UEFI (UEFI: KingstonDT etc...) option for the USB stick, now that no longer displays. I am not sure why.
- MAC OS X
- UEFI: Samsung SSD 860 etc...
- P1: Samsung SSD 860 etc...
UniBeast is a very generic solution which tries to cater for any type of PC but it should work for your motherboard.
FYI. UniBeast does all the "things" you do by "hand" so new users (and old users alike) don't have to have indepth knowledge on the so-called vanilla method steps to install macOS. BTW, UniBeast uses the createinstallmedia method, too.I did not use that method as I had the "luxury" of another Mac from which I manually created (Createinstallmedia method) my own Clover installer. And on which I setup the config.plist file and kexts necessary for this motherboard. But that's beyond the scope if you do not know how to do that.
If you do not see UEFI prefix for the USB then it means that the UniBeast install onto the USB was done as LEGACY (for systems without UEFI). The UEFI BIOS looks for certain markers on the drives such as EFI Partition and BOOTX86.efi file on it in order to determine its suitability for UEFI boot. Make sure you follow the UniBeast guide for UEFI.Hi, all.
OK. I will try that in an hour when I get to the machine. Note, the UniBeast USB was an option, but the UEFI prefix was removed and last night there was no longer an UEFI option for the USB.
However, I will try these suggestions and see if the UEFI label returns. Thank you so much!
