If you have a real Mac then you get the installer via the App Store.
Which defaults to 10.14.1

I understand completely that the community is helpful, and I appreciate it. I'm just saying that I've gone over my bios a dozen times, tried different USB ports, different usb thumb drives. I've only been able to get to the Installer portion once, and my machine reboots before finishing. Try the same USB stick again & I can't even get to the installer.

Installing El Cap was a breeze for me compared to this.

Anyone successfully gotten your H107N-WiFi HD 530 to work at 2560x1440@60Hz or more? The motherboard specs state for more than 1080p, we can't use the DVI port, but the HDMI ports.

I'm on Mojave and currently, there is no Nvidia driver support, so my Nvidia card is useless for my QHD monitor. :oops:

Mojave is off topic. Post in Mohave Desktop support.

Hi guys, my Hackintosh was tucked away for years because of this problem, however now I have tried to turn it on again, and the problem still persists. The screen randomly goes like this in the video, black and then back to normal. Where and how can I check what is wrong?

Plus I cant load Youtube on Safari, only on Opera. Screenshot attached. Thank you all for helping.

ahh cool!!can you share your Catalina install steps?
1. Moved all 3rd party kext from /Library/Extensions to /EFI/CLOVER/kext/Others.
2. Update kexts, especially WhateverGreen, Lilu, and AppleALC.
3. Reboot to make sure kexts are loaded properly.
4. Update Clover, i.e., the file CLOVERX64.efi.
5. Reboot to make sure new Clover works.
6. Install Catalina: Preferences->Software Update.

Done.
