Thanks and also just a quick question would this guide work with Mojave?
Not with your 750 Ti. No driver support. Give High Sierra a try and get that working first.

Put the .BIN file on a cleanly formatted FAT32 USB. Put it in a USB port and boot up while pressing the esc key. Follow the BIOS flash directions in the guide.

Hi admin.
Need a little help. I followed the guide and managed to install MacOS Mojave today with one issue. The system recognises my graphics card (GT 710) but I don't have any acceleration (see the dock). What could be the issue?
I have attached the relevant problem reporting files.

Many thanks.
I have the same system and am currently on 10.13.6 (latest version of High Sierra). What process did you do to upgrade to Mojave?

Download Mojave from the App Store and run the installer app. Make sure to update Clover and kexts before you do the update.

Unrelated to the hackintoshing but related to the computer its on, on reboot I just started getting "1720 SMART Hard Drive detects imminent failure. Failing Drive: SATA0 (Dark Blue) Failing Attribute: #00". I'm not sure yet if its a drive problem or a port. Reading online it looks like it could also be the disk cache device triggering the error. Just wondering if anyone else on here has had to troubleshoot the same error on the HP 6200 pro and what my steps should be.

Sounds like a drive that is failing to me. Replace immediately. At least back up your data somewhere safe first.
