Updating osx86

When you update your beta build on a real Mac, it’s almost seamless.

You don’t have to think about what it’s doing when it reboots, because it always boots from the correct volume. When you update Hackintosh High Sierra, things are different.

The latest update of Mojave can be downloaded from the App Store by going to the Mojave page or through Software Update in System Preferences.

The High Sierra 10.13.6 update is the sixth major update for mac OS High Sierra.

The machine soft-reboots into an installer that is supposed to get things ready.

It creates a special software update volume on your hard drive, and then reboots.

That had me stumped a bit, since I’d never encountered it with my build.There may be up to 4 restarts to finish the update.For Ryzen users 10.13.6 should be avoided due to a number of compatibility issues.I have some examples provided in Step 3.1 of the Mojave Desktop Guide for different setups.If not set properly as an example their could be super slow login times along with slowdown in apps reopening with Intel Graphics or if using AMD graphics they could boot to a black screen, both situations can be avoided by setting ig-platform-id properly in both places and updating graphical related kexts.

Finally, after some research and tinkering, I was able to update Hackintosh High Sierra successfully. I certainly never needed it when I tried to update Hackintosh High Sierra.
