  1. Agreed that Mojave actually was the easiest install I've ever done. Apple does ask too much but in my opinion this new refreshed 2019 iMac is beautiful and snappy. It's awesome. I'm still fairly new to Mac. I'm used to Linux and Windows. I do thank you for making it compatible and easy to install. I just wish there was more support.
  2. Had that issue in the past. go to "manage Apple ID" from google then you can delete your accounts(you're only allowed 5 computers). If you still get the error, what worked for me was going into system preferences and creating a new login from guest and signing in the new user account.
  3. me, personally, before adding any kexts or config.plist or doing anything to the system, I do the update off the top. I have never experienced that error. Try re-installing with the APFS and swapping the EFI from USB stick. Then update and install everything you want and see if that works for you
  4. these Hackintosh forums are not very helpful at all. I have been waiting for a response from Niresh and can't get any. Waiting for a response for the sleep issue and waiting for a bootcamp response or even a way to dual boot Mojave and Windows.....BUT THERE IS NO SUPPORT HERE! Finally went ahead and ordered me a 2019 (refreshed) IMAC for about $2500 and am waiting for it. Might as well switch, less problems, more support. Waiting here for an answer is crazy. This forum is dead!
  5. So, I've tried multiple attempts,(on a spare HDD), to get dual boot with Windows 10 and Mojave...... NO GO! I'm wondering why wouldn't Bootcamp work? I keep seeing that Bootcamp is a Mac thing, but, isn't MacOs also? Thats odd.... wondering if anyone has tried it and been successful, because, dual booting Mojave and Windows with every tutorial I've tried has not worked. Just left me with "legacy HD3 and "Boot from Windows system" and when selected, it leaves a windows icon on the screen for a second or 2 and reboots. Any issues with a High Sierra install using MBR patch?
  6. is there a fix? a guy did my computer but it kept freezing, sleep worked when I closed the lid and the sleep option did too, so I erased it and started my own Hackintosh from scratch. I really need this fixed cause when I'm downloading stuff and it passes the timer or I'm away from my computer it reboots. I don't want to put it to NEVER SLEEP. My Hackintosh is flawless, everything is working except this.
  7. Toshiba satellite S75-A7221 It also reboots when I put to sleep
  8. I have everything up and running but am faced with this issue now, when I close my lid my computer reboots instead of sleeps. Ive searched on and on in google and can't find a fix for Mojave.
  9. anytime you update a kext make sure you put the new kext in EFI/CLOVER/KEXT/OTHER and also in /Library/Extensions if you see it in there replace it with new kext. I went through that problem so much times I always double check everything now when updating kext.
  10. Mac Mojave from Niresh, Insatll is simple depending on the wifi card you have. For the most part, install is a breeze. Niresh's Mojave .dmg pretty much installs all you need to get started. All you have to do is install the latest Clover boot loader and the kext you need to be up and running. Read read read and have some time to experiment with things. I've been trying the installs for 8 years and I finally know how to do kexts and stuff. I have an immaculate Mac Mojave on my PC.
  11. is there an easier way to understand the patching because I keep getting infinite boots and I have to redo my whole system. Ive tried compiling from git and get stuck at make. iasl errors. I have Maciasl but don't know what to do with it. I have everything running perfect and smooth and I would hate to make it crash again.
  12. i tried that method and rebooted and when loading it reboots, bootloops. i have a brightness control from the app store and it works with F2 and F3. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
  13. So, i finally got my Mojave 10.14.3 up and running perfectly. Did a full install by myself and im amazed at actually how easy it was. Only problem im having is with the Display brightness slider. Im not using Applebacklight kext i am using Whatevergreen.kext. My specs are as follows: Toshiba Satellite S75-A7221 i7-4700MQ 2.30ghz intel HD 4600 like i said,everything is running perfectly except for the display brightness bar in System Preferences, there is none? How can i get the brightness slider? Im currently using brightness slider app from the App Store but it dims contrast. Oh and thank you Niresh for providing the OS
  14. you could try these https://mega.nz/#F!tVd03aIY!fOd_BGexlmd-7_ygcEvR7g they work for me on my ELAN touchpad. Let nme know if they work for you
  15. try applebacklightfixup.kext it might help. after installing try going into preferences/display it should have the slider. Im having issues with key function for dimmer
  16. I finally got a working Hackintosh Mojave on my PC. Of course i paid someone to do it,but, after messing with Clover,Kexts,etc. i am pretty sure i understand how this thing works now. I now know what i was doing wrong and how to get things installed properly now. Sorry Niresh and thank you. I have only one issue i've been dealing with which is nothing major. So, my PC is a Toshiba Satellite S75-A7221 and i cant control the dimmer with FN+F2/F3. I removed the applebacklightfix.kext and installed the whatevergreen.kext with the lilu.kext updated and still no functionality. Can someone help me with a fix?
  17. Epic fail over and over. Post installation is just not working for me at all! I’m 100% over it and am over Mac. I’ll just go buy a damn macbook is simpler than wasting away at this! These forums have absolutely slim to none support and just a waste of time. ITS EASIER TO BUY A DAMN MACBOOK ALL THESE YEARS IVE WASTED TRYING TO GET ONE THING WORKING AND CONE UP WITH NOTHING! Good luck to those who attempt. It sucks. Easier to just get a functional MacBook without the headaches of bogus installation crap.
  18. Attempting another install this time with Clover EFI select during customize of the install. Silly me wasn’t using Clover EFI installer thinking it would magically install itself. Now I’m going to attempt a post installation. Hopefully this works. Now I need the REaltek8188EE driver for WiFi? Tried one and it didn’t work. Is there a fix for it or do I need a BCM?
  19. It only boots in CSM. In UEFI it just stays on a black screen at boot and does nothing unless the USB is in. So for boot, I tried the Clover UEFI and I’ve tried Chameleon EFI and they both don’t boot on UEFI, nothing works. Only CSM. Which option do I do and what post installation do I use because Enoch doesn’t seem to do anything from what I’ve noticed
  20. And it’s obvious my laptop can install it I’m just over it. Thanks for the few reply’s niresh
  21. It only works in CSM boot not UEFI. This is so frustrating I don’t know what else to try? This takes way too much time and doesn’t work for me. I don’t want to pay someone to do it cause it’s already on my hdd just not booting from UEFI. I hate windows and that’s why I want this on my laptop and I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a MacBook Pro if my PC can run it. Well I’m tired of trying so I guess Linux it is cause it’s more stable and way easier to install with no headaches. I would commend you on this but I can’t give you any credit cause it doesn’t work for me
  22. Toshiba Satellite S75-A7221 i7-4700mq intel 4600 graphics i don’t know what CSM is sorry. Im trying a different way, I unselect Ed clover and went with chameleon EFI and I’m trying the atheros kext for WiFi. I’m using Enoch to install the chameleon to the hdd. About to reboot and see if I can get it to stick. Also if you have a link to the dssdt.aml and the ssdt.aml that would help me a bit
  23. Okay,so, here is the big problems ive been facing: 1. I install the Sierra Hackintosh as a main system on my SSD and it goes perfectly fine,( no RL8188EE driver so i used my Iphone as ethernet) everything updates and tells me to restart and i do so. Now the problem begins, 2. When rebooting I of course boot from USB and select the HDD with the system installed and it boots, Now, if i ever try to reboot from USB again it doesnt boot up from it, ever...... 3. Ive followed guide after guide to get clover boot to stick and cant get it to install correctly. a) i choose "CLOVER BOOT OPTIONS< UEFI b) It still doesnt stick. What am i doing wrong and what do i need to make it stick to the HD? there is little to no support here and would appreciate it if i could get some info on POST INSTALLATION! I have been trying to get a Hackintosh since IATKOS Snow leopard and i have never gotten anything to work properly. Some help would be greatly appreciated if someone can guide me through the post installation and the files needed for it. All my efforts was attempted through CLOVER CONFIGURATOR WHICH MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM. THANKS IN ADVANCE
  24. okay so i figured the whole set up for the Sierra distro. Here's whats going on... (figured out i have to use Multi-Beast or Clover-EFI to install boot to the HDD so i can use without USB) Here is my new issues: 1) screen Glitchy graphics card is the base Intel 4600 (is there a fix?) 2) NO WIFI! ( Realtek 8188E driver is needed but tried from a guy on youtube to no avail..... NEEDED!! desperately need the wifi driver. Please help or guide me for years ive attempted a hackintosh install and never got this close.
  25. Hi Niresh. So, i can only boot with the HZ USB plugged in and i can boot my external HDD. Problem is I dont know how to boot without the HZ USB plugged in?? Also, I have the Realtek8188E and i have no WIFI. How to fix please
