Hi, I am trying to install Mojave on my old laptop: Acer Aspire 4820T

Specs:
i3 350M
8GB Ram
Intel HD
HDD 250GB

I created a USB installer using UniBeast, in particular I am trying to install Mojave.

I can get to the Clover screen, however when I run install Mojave the screen goes black and I scan see random white rectangles on the screen.
I have tried to use a fakeID 0x12345678 in the inject GPU.
I have also tried to run with option: GraphicsEnabler=0

Any idea?

Update 1: I changed the option to GraphicsEnabler=No
I can get to the apple screen but then the screen goes black again. If I enable verbose, I see the triangles again without even getting the apple logo.

GraphicsEnabler=0 has no relevance in clover

unibeast is mainly for desktop computers

please read the faq for proper hardware profile setup and lots of other useful information:

Still not working, can we actually install Mojave on old intels? I have read somewhere that even after patching it does't work.

Provided that I were you, I would like to trade this laptop for a new one. Even if you install MacOS Mojave on this laptop, you would confront bad experience due to the lack of QE/CI of your iGPU.

I am aware of this, however I just want to give it a try as I would just throw this laptop then.
