Watch this video to see the complete start to finish processI've made this High Sierra video tutorial because I know that many in this community don't speak English as their primary language, much less the language of the Hackintosh ! So if you learn better by seeing rather than reading guides, this is for you.

Prior to watching the most recent in depth video posted on YT, I tried to cobble together a list of steps to transform my HP Compaq Elite 8300 CMT to a Hackintosh. I think my mistake was upgrading the firmware to 3.0.4, I believe I need to downgrade the firmware, from 3.0.4 to 2.99.
With a lot of help from a friend, I got my hands on a USB thumb drive that was created based upon your video. I am still having problems with SSD showing up in the list of UEFI boot devices.
The reason I say that is that, the SSD I have been trying to use, and I have tried two different SSD's, 1) Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2) Crucial BX300 120GB, and neither one shows up in UEFI BOOT choices.
My question, is there anywhere I can get a DOS based firmware 2.99 that is not OS 7 or 8 based to complete the downgrade of the firmware on my machine? The firmware from HP is only OS specific.
The only alternative is to temporarily reinstall Win 7 on a HDD to complete the downgrade. I attempted this but I got a message about the UEFI not compatible with MBR on the HDD.
I would appreciate some direction if you could help me.
