Recommended Posts

Thanks for your work Niresh,

But on my Acer Predator G5 793 72A7 i don't see any discs (only booting USB) -it's Niresh Mojave distro.

I have 1TB nvme Plextor SSD and 120GB SATA SSD which I would like to use completly with mojave.

Can anyone help me with that?

my specs:

Core i7 7700HQ CPU

Intel HM175 mobile chipset

8GB RAM

Nvidia Gforce 1060M 6GB graphics card

killer ethernet/wireless net card

@vobo70 Did you set SATA as AHCI on BIOS?

Thanks for answer.

I know it's strange but I don't have that option - it's 2018 UEFI gaming laptop bought just to process photos.

My bios reports HDD as RAID.

I found one solution:

Can you help me how to make changes to your Mojave distro?

After creating bootable Niresh Mojave Installer, Plug your USB into windows computer (Easy way)

  • Download & Extract Attached Zip "SATA-100-series-unsupported-acer-predator-g792.kext.zip"
  • Copy and Paste "SATA-100-series-unsupported-acer-predator-g792.kext" to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other

 

Boot from USB, After the Installation you must use USB to boot instead of Hard disk for first time, Then Install "SATA-100-series-unsupported-acer-predator-g792.kext" to UEFI Partition.

Thank you.
Due to your instruction I was able to install hackintosh zone.

But unfortunateli it does not boot.

Either from USB thank choose OSX HDD in clover. Or from OSX directlly (I put that kext to OSX efi partition)

To install I had to load all options from clover. But to boot it does not help.

Those are screenshoots
