My first Hackintosh: Mojave Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming Coffee Lake

Image
Last month I decided to replace my ageing 2015 iMac with my first Hackintosh...and what an experience has it been!  I invested a lot of time in getting it up and running but now it works like a charm and I want to share with you my working configuration.


You may find this useful if you have identical or similar hardware. I will focus on the Clover configuration, drivers and kexts specific to this hardware and provide links to the guides I used for more general info on Vanilla installations.

!IMPORTANT!
Please note that many guides for the Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming use an unsupported memory fix driver called OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi . The developer of this driver says that you should never ever use it, as it can cause serious issues to your system (here's his post). After a lot of and trial and error...I managed to use the standard memory fix driver contained in Clover r5033 (OsxAptioFix3Drv.efi) , by changing one little setting in the BIOS!
