Mojave installation successful on legacy mode

Recommended Posts

Hi Niresh,

 

I was using Sierra for a year on my legacy system with Chameleon bootloader. (For same reason Clover UEFI not working on my hardware) 

Intel Core i3 3rd Generation Processor.

Asus 710 2GB graphics Card.

Gigabyte H61 Motherboard

Samsung 320 GB HDD.

(I know this is pretty much old hardware but I don't need Mac for Video Editing and other tasks).

 

When you released Mojave, I directly install on same drive which have working sierra. Only just unchecked option to install Clover UEFI bootloader during Configuration.

To the surprise everything working out of box. (Graphics, Audio, Ethernet)

Thanks @madhavk I know it would work on some old machines anyhow I decided to drop support for older hardware, users can try to Install This on older machines by manually Making a bootable USB.

hello, i seen your post a week ago so i tried it for my self you are correct it does work on legacy mode.

 

i don't  know what the big deal is with UEFI BOOT whats so good about it? please some one tell me the difference  because my laptop is still fast and powerful so i fail to see the importance of UEFI BOOT, there should be always a choice, legacy and UEFI BOOT

 

so what i did i had a working old macOS Sierra, which was duel booting with my windows 7 and windows 10,

 

all did is put my laptop in UEFI BOOT boot mode in the bios, so it  would read Niresh boot USB macOS Mojave, it boots up then you just install, do not not format to gpt or convert your disk to gpt, no point. mbr will not recognize it.

 

i unpicked boot, and Niresh help files, and left every thing else i all ticked, i also ticked for all the fixes and add on.

 

everything works fine sound WiFi, bluetooth, graphics, i was surprised. 

 

my laptop is :

@FLINT66 I am Happy that you made Mojave work, I have dropped support for many legacy system as they are non-compatible few are exceptional.
