Yes I make it happen!
#IBM Server #X3550M4
此機器完美成功以 LSI 9211-8i 陣列卡 HBA Mode 裝載 Intel SSD 開機進入 #macOS #Mojave
CPU 兩顆 E5-2620 V2
32G RAM 可以開始繼續加記憶體和換更快的CPU了
1）IBM SERVER X3550M4 is very cheap, ¥500-700 in China.
Ram is cheap.
CPU e5-2620 V2 is also cheap.
Everything is cheap, but Knowledge is not.
It’s very difficult to install macOS mojave, because this machine can not recognize “usb drive” as usb stick.
Usb stick =/ usb drive
When I put a ssd to usb connector, unlike normal pc, can not boot.
👉 Usb stick install is very slow, needs 8-10 hours.
2) LSI 9211-8i
With older firmware, cause server boot very slow or strange.
Maybe it’s why 1) slow.
After I upgraded firmware to P20, boot will be very fast, amazing.
But I didn’t try reinstall to test, anyway upgrade firmware first.
3) 🔴 efi UEFI is very important!
1. macOS mojave UEFI
2. X3550M4 UEFI
3.LSI 9211-8i UEFI
👉 YES, all must be UEFI
