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.
10.14.1 is most appropriate. I don’t know how else to help other than suggest start from scratch. Make sure your installer is setup correctly and required Kexts are in the ‘other’ folder. This Hackintosh stuff can drive you a little batty. Maybe take a day or two off and come back to it later.

One more suggestion from personal experience.. If you have multiple drives in your build, disconnect all other than the boot drive. When you’re all done with the install and updates, then connect the additional drives.

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:
