Current Mojave installer from Mac App Store.Thank you. I am trying to do a clean install of Mojave now. I was able to find an Mojave update that requires High Sierra but I need a full/clean installer. Is there a full Mojave installer out there that gets me to the latest firmware...or has that ship sailed?!
Please read again the first post since all the info needed is there and has the working link for the current Mojave installer, just checked and it's working:I am finally ready to make the jump from High Sierra to Mojave (I think).
Right now I am on
2012 5,1 - 3.33 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
High Sierra 10.13.6 - Boot ROM MP51.0089.B00
Radeon Sapphire RX 580 8192 MB (Flashed by MacVidCards the first of this year)
Boot Drive is internal SSD on PCI card (APFS)
Everything running stable for the past several weeks.
If I understand correctly, I "should" just be able to just run the Mojave installer from where I am at and it will automatically upgrade the Boot ROM and system to the latest version of Mojave... right?
Only problem is I do not see the Mojave installer in the App Store even when I do a search? (I also do not see it on my local drive in the Applications folder).

How to fix BlackScreen and how to upgrade Catalina?
yes I follow this step, but step 3 can'tOff-topic here, read about OpenCore:

Reboot into recovery
Please go to the OpenCore thread and ask help there since it's not related to the topic of this thread, let's keep strictly on track here.yes I follow this step, but step 3 can't
I try but no put to recovery , I'm using PCIe NVME Boot OSX Mojave
3 First Boot
Reboot into recovery
You may need to authorize this. Be patient. Mac Pro boot times can be long, especially when booting into recovery.
- Open Terminal
- Reboot into recovery by entering: sudo nvram "recovery-boot-mode=unused" && sudo reboot recovery
I'm confused. How can you erase the HDD and then download the installer and open the installer without using a bootable USB? (The last option in the intro)Don't overthink things.
You don't need to buy anything, put an old HDD on one of the original sleds, erase/format it as one partition of HFS+/GUID (the 10.13 installer will correctly convert it to APFS when reboots and the install process starts), download the 10.13.6 installer from Apple Support: How to upgrade to macOS High Sierra, open the installer, select the HDD, do the install.
Shutdown your Mac, remove your SATA III adapter, boot from your High Sierra HDD, download 10.14.6 installer from Apple Support: How to upgrade to macOS Mojave, open the Mojave installer, upgrade the firmware.
HiI'm stuck because I'm on a MP 3,1 and I cannot seem to get it to recognize the Sierra bootable USB that I made.
Okay, I thought this thread still might apply to the MB 3,1. So does the things stated about not using the hacked installs NOT apply to the MB 3,1 ?
Hm, okay. I guess I went down the wrong rabbit hole. I had previously tried DosDude's patchers and successfully installed HS but then had issues with the Mojave install where it was booting after the post install patch and stalled at 75% on boot screen.Exactly.
For a MP 3,1 there is no other way than install Sierra/HighSierra/Mojave etc. by e.g. DosDude Patcher
Please be a good forum user and help us keeping this thread on track, ask your doubts about dosdude patches on the Mojave unsupported thread.Hm, okay. I guess I went down the wrong rabbit hole. I had previously tried DosDude's patchers and successfully installed HS but then had issues with the Mojave install where it was booting after the post install patch and stalled at 75% on boot screen.
I am guessing something was wrong with the cards I had installed... or.. I dunno. Any ideas? I am trying everything all over again now...!
