Need help: High Sierra + MSI Z370M Gaming Pro AC + i7-9700K

Recommended Posts

Hello,


I would like to install Olarila Mojave GM on my computer. The specifications of my desktop are:


- MSI Z370M Gaming Pro AC

- Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6Ghz

- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming 8GB GDDR5

- Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 PC4-24000 32GB 2x16GB CL15

- Samsung 850 EVO - Solid hard drive (500 GB)

- Toshiba OCZ TR200 SSD 240GB SATA3


I used Etcher.app to create a bootable usb with the Olarila Mojave GM image. Later I installed clover in the usb with Clover_v2.4k_r4813. Next I have replaced the "CLOVER" folder on the usb with "Clover Folder Series 100.200.300".


Once this is done, I have restarted the computer and started from the usb. I select the option "boot macOS install from install macOS Mojave". Before the installation screen appears, the following appears:


">


Once there, I delete and format "mac os plus with registration" on the disk where I want to install the system. In this case the Samsung 850 EVO. The system starts to install, but when there are approximately 2 minutes left to finish the process, the installation is interrupted and the following appears:


">


Finally, after the error in the installation, the system restarts and starts from the hard disk, the installation seems to continue and during the process an error reappears. In this case, a message appears that says the following: "Unable to install macOS on the computer: The target disk is too small for this operation, exit the installer to restart the computer and try again."


I know I must be doing wrong but right now I'm a little lost and any help is welcome. I report that I have tried to install with the front usb and also from the usb ports on the motherboard. Also that in the on the other hard drive (Toshiba OCZ TR200) I have installed windows 10.


If someone can help me with a correct configuration for the bios my motherboard would appreciate it. This way I could know if the error is in the bios configuration.


Thank you very much and best regards.


PS: I'm not sure if I posted on the right thread. If it is necessary to move the post to the correct thread there is no problem. Thank you.

First, thank you for your response.


That is the option I choose, then what happens is: "...the installation seems to continue and during the process an error reappears. In this case, a message appears that says the following: "Unable to install macOS on the computer: The target disk is too small for this operation, exit the installer to restart the computer and try again."

Re-do again and make sure you erase SSD with GUID partition and choose HSPlus/apfs as file system. Also check that you choose the correct SSD or partition for OS installation. By now, I assume you are trying High Sierra since Mojave does not support the GPU that you are having.


Also check that BIOS is set at AHCI.


Note: Do note make multiple posts in other thread with your issues.

Thank you very much for your help onemanosx,


Of course, since I have been told that my gpu is not compatible with mojave I have always tried High Sierra. The bios was set correctly at AHCI. I have tried again and I have deleted the disk. This time I have formatted it with APFS instead of MacOS Plus registered as you have told me and fortunately I have been able to install the system.


I still have many things to solve. At first glance I can see that I do not have audio and neither do wifi and bluetooth work. But at least I have something to start working with because video acceleration works (after installing Nvidia WebDriver Sierra) and also the ethernet network card.


Thanks again.

MaLd0n has first provided me with the DSDT.aml.zip file. Could you guide me on what I should do now?

those that come integrated on the motherboard

I am afraid intel wifi will not work. you will need to get supported wifi card. The most used is the Broadcom's BCM4360 models.

[ref]Pako Soto[/ref], Then you should ask that user :mrgreen: In my experience unsupported Wifi will never work and unsupported bluetooth is buggy to say the least. I never said bluetooth will never work tho... ;)
