Mojave Installation issues on 5,1 MacBook patched with dosdude

Dear community, I have been using my old MacBook successfully for a few month on dosdude ´ s 1.2.3 patch. My unibody MacBook has been upgraded with 5 GB of ram and 256 SSD, with macOS Extended, thanks to ifixit’s forum. Everything was smooth and I was very proud.

Yesterday, I realized I needed to upgrade the system to get to Mojave 10.4.16 and I followed the tutorial again to install the 1.3.0 patcher skipping the clean install parts as was suggested in my case.

I think I did everything ok until I tried to do the final reboot after the patches. Then the progression bar halfway through went to a black screen with the little wheel turning then stopping then turning then stopping with the mouse icon appearing and disappearing at the same time...

I did try :

- multiple reboot after every attempt: no improvement

- disk repair: showed no problem

- safe mode: I can boot into it. I reinstalled the patch updater from the website to have the final version, reinstalled all the patches. In about a Mac, I can see I am indeed in version 10.4.16.

- verbose mode is stuck on information I dont really get ( please see caption)

 I would like to try to avoid a clean install as it will be difficult to save my data (I am on holiday) and also I am scared that I won't be able to log in even in safe mode.

If anyone has an idea, I will be very grateful.

Many Thanks from France !

If you have not backed up your data onto an external drive with something like Time Machine or saved your data to iCloud, you had better hold off.

Go get another drive and use internet recovery to put a system on it. Save the old drive till you get home or you risk loosing everything.
