check your bios boot order - if any show 'OSX' disable that boot option.
In guide - step 5. G- says to remove the USB and boot from drive. Thats what i did.
You mean that i still have to boot from USB ?

No.
Restart your machine and interrupt the boot process to get into the bios (press escape or f12) then in the BIOS configuration screen go to Boot options and disable the entry that says 'osx' if it exists.

Could you explain what "select the folders and it showed 0KB means" ?

One other thing.
I installed mojave in hard disk, not SSD. I formatted the disk in HFS Journalled and proceed with install.
After installation i open Disk Utility and see that the hard disk is formatted in APFS.
I thought it formats only SSD's.

You are making the wrong selection in Kextbeast. Look at the image I posted in the guide.
Choose to install into /Library/Extensions not there. You'll need to go into /S/L/E to delete those first.

fwiw, it is normal for 'Zero KB' to appear when you select a folder.

btw, you have also selected the wrong folder !
The image shows 'upgrade' which indicates you have previously installed the kexts into wrong folder. That may explain your boot issues perhaps?

I think you can navigate to the System/Library/Extensions folder, locate and manually delete the incorrectly installed kexts.

Then run kextbeast again and install them into correct Library/Extensions folder.

Mojave now converts all HDDs to APFS. Sorry.

Here's the new Load Defaults section of BIOS Setup.

Load Optimized Defaults
after you've flashed the BIOS and before you make any other changes to it.
There is a "Load Defaults" tab in the lower central part of the window. Click on that and then click Apply.

Go to Boot Sequence and set the Boot List Option to UEFI.
thanks: Bill888 for pointing this out.
