      We were all excited for Apple WWDC 2018 for some updates on mac OS, and also expecting some hardware announcements along to get improved support for latest CPU and GPU hardware. Unfortunately there were no hardware announcements 😟, but we got a nice update from macOS in the name of Mojave (10.14) 😀 (even though its expected every year, but this year they introduced many new user oriented features which are really useful in our day to day activities). It is coming this fall!
      The new macOS Mojave has full of features!

      Here are a list of the new features:

      When you screenshot, a new thumbnail in the lower-right corner will popup with markup options, save, delete, and share

      A new side bar shows full metadata and includes quick actions like routing, markup, and more
      Side bar is contextual and changes based on file type, such as PDF, images, and documents
      Automator actions in the quick actions menu let you make custom buttons for side bar, such as watermarking a PDF

    1. 1. Do you like our site design ?

      • Yes
      • Yes, but still need some improvements
      • No, I hate it
      • Prefer old site template

    • @troorl you're off-topic and should not use your own personal poor experience with your E6430 (an Ivy Bridge platform) to make statement regarding Mojave on an E6320 (a Sandy Bridge platform).   This beign said, whilst the E6320 can perfectly run Mojave with the usual tricks for HD3000, it's not free from little graphics defects due to lack of Metal support.
    • Use the revised pack I posted in the guide. It's got better I2C kexts which fully support the TouchPad, except the buttons.   I've just tested USB-c WD15 docking station and it's supported 100%. I only have 1920x1080 external displays though so cannot comment on 4k.
    • You didn't read the whole thread, right?   I've got an almost perfect installation of High Sierra 10.13.6 running on my E6320. Eventually I will buy an older Optiplex to do my tests with Mojave. But at the moment I'm very happy with High Sierra   Btw, those random freezes seem to be gone since I upgraded RAM from 4 to 8 GB
    • HDMI or HDMI audio? Please post debug file with HDMI plugged in
    • I wouldn't recommend Mojave, it's unstable on my E6430. In particular it sometimes reboots after waking up, which is something that never happened on 10.12. It's already my second attempt to migrate, but it seems like I can't make it work.
    • Usually after download, the installation will start. You can just stop the installation without any ill effect. You can then create an USB installer with the downloaded Mojave app.   (1) Create the USB installer via Terminal with "createinstallmedia" (a minimum of 16GB UFD is needed or an external USB drive) sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/"target_USB" --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app --nointeraction Note: target_USB = name of the USB drive you're writing to. When done, USB Drive will automatically renamed to "Install MacOS Mojave"   (2) Install Clover with following config, add appropriate Bootpack to /EFI/Clover      UEFI:  Install for UEFI booting only Install Clover in the ESP Drivers64UEFI\DataHubDxe-64 Drivers64UEFI\FSInject-64 Drivers64UEFI\SMCHelper-64 Drivers64UEFI\ApfsDriverLoader-64 Drivers64UEFI\AptioMemoryFix-64 Drivers64UEFI\PartitionDxe-64 Install Clover Preference Pane  Finally add to Drivers64UEFI\HFSPlus.efi (not included in Clover installer)   Note2: The new format will be APFS, there's no way to use HFS+ unless you clone the drive to an HFS+ formatted drive.
    • I didn't add other files to highlight that the solution is within the the patched ACPI files. Anyways, this is my clover folder CLOVER.zip. Specs: CPU: i5-5200U, HD5500 GPU: Nvidia 920m BIOS: A14
