How to Install macOS Mojave on PC- Hackintosh?
Step 1. Download macOS Mojave 10.14
In order to Install macOS Mojave on PC- Hackintosh, first we need to create a Bootable USB. But Before Creating Bootable USB we need to download macOS Mojave to create bootable USB with.
Before Gettings started, I have to tell you, it is the macOS Mojave beta version 2, I mean it is not the final version of macOS Mojave.
To download macOS Mojave, you need a simple software called macOS Developer Beta Access Utility tool. This tool is in the .dmg file, and you need to mount the .dmg file.
In order to install or mount the developer tool follow the below steps.
- Double-click on the developer tool to launch it.
- On the welcome screen, click continue.
- Agree to the license and agreement of Developer tool and click continue.
- Select a location where to install and click Install.
- Enter your password for confirmation and click install software.
- When the installation completes close the Developer utility tool.
Step 2. Partition the USB for macOS Mojave
Before creating a Bootable USB for macOS Mojave, you have to partition the USB, in other words, you need to erase the USB. Please make sure the USB Flash Drive must 16 GB for Higher. To erase the USB Flash Drive
- First, Insert the USB Flash Drive.
- Open spotlight & search for Disk Utility.
- In Disk Utility select the USB and Erase it with the following settings.
- Name: Provide any Name
- Format: Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)
- Scheme: GUID Partition Map
When you are with the settings, select erase to partition the USB, after the USB erased click done, and close the disk utility.
Step 3. Copy macOS Mojave to USB with Terminal
Now that you have downloaded the macOS Mojave and erased the USB Flash Drive, you need to copy macOS Mojave to USB Flash. You can do it manually but it is better to do with command so, we should face any error.
- First, Open the terminal by searching in the spotlight.
- When the terminal opens, paste the below command in terminal and hit return.
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled —applicationpath/Applications/Install\macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app —nointeraction
If you have any problem with First Command try the second command.
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app
After you enter the command, Terminal will ask you enter your password for confirmation. Keep in mind, the password is secured and you won’t be able to see it. After that terminal asks you to type y to continue, type y and go wait until the macOS Mojave is copied to USB.
Step 4. Install Clover Bootloader on the macOS Mojave Install media
Without a bootloader, you won’t be able to boot to your computer, we also need to configure that with the installation of macOS Mojave.
- First, Open the Clover Bootloader & select continue on the welcome screen.
- On the important information, click continue.
- Change the Install location to USB Flash Drive or Install media of macOS Mojave.
On the Installation type, don’t select continue, because we have configured some important settings.
- When the Destination Drive is mentioned, select customize on the Installation type page.
- In this customize window, first check the box of UEFI.only
- The Target.ESP will be selected as Default, don’t uncheck that.
- Next, expand the Driver64UEFI and check the below boxes.
Please make sure, that the below 7 settings are already checked, and if any of any boxes are not selected, enable them manually.
After selecting all the Above settings click install, then enter your password for confirmation and click Install software. When the Installation is done, close the Clover Bootloader.
Step 5. Installing Drivers and Verifying system definitions
Once the Clover is loaded into the USB Flash Drive, on the Desktop you will see an EFI Partition drive.
Open the EFI Partition Folder, and go to EFI> Clover> Drivers64. Once you reached their copy the apfs.efi from desktop inside the Drivers64 folder.
When APFS.EFI is Copied, go back to the Drivers64UEFI Folder, Here also paste the APFS.EFS File. There is already an Apfs.efs file, delete it or replace it, that’s your choice.
Once again Go back and this time open the Kexts folder, then open the other folder. In the Kexts folder, you have to copy the drivers. Basically, the files which you need to copy are FakeSMC.Kext, RealtekRTL8111.Kext and shiki.kext. But if you are a Pascal or Nvidia user, also copy the NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext and lilu.kext.
The Last step here is, replacing the Config.plist, so, go back to the clover folder. Delete the Config.plist and paste the new one which you download. This Config file contains all the necessary files and options to install macOS Mojave, but the only thing which is not configured is the system definition.
To configure the system definition, right click on the config.plist inside the clover on USB and select open with clover configurator. In the clover configurator, on the left side select SMBIOS and select your system definition.
I am using the Intel i5 4460 CPU and the best match system definitions are iMac 14,2- intel core-i5 4570 @3.20 GHz. If your system definitions are not available their select an option which has similar hardware or CPU to your PC.
After selecting the system definitions, if you are a Pascal or Nvidia user, from the left side select system parameters and check the Nvidiaweb. Now Go ahead and save the changes to the Config.Plist file.
Once you edited the config.plist, copy that from EFI Partition because later you will use to configure some settings on macOS Mojave.
Step 6. Post Install
All the Files which you downloaded before and created a Bootable USB for macOS Mojave will be required once for setting up the macros Mojave later.
- First, Create a New Folder and Name it Post Install
- Copy all the Downloaded files and config.plist inside the post install folder.
- Copy the Post Install folder to macOS Mojave Installer Media and paste there.
Once you are done with the Post Install, eject the USB Flash Drive and Restart the PC.
