If you want to try Mojave on a separate drive (don't install over your Sierra Drive, remove that first) then just use the default iMac 14,2 sysdef. It would probably be best for you to wait until Multibeast 11 is released too. That also uses iMac 14,2 as the default you don't have to do anything to get that.
Thanks, but my problem now is I can not run install, so using multibeast is what happen after installed. I thought you have a way to run install success on HP8000.

I no longer own an HP 8000 just the newer HP 8300. If you want to run Mojave longer term or even the next macOS then buy an HP 8300 with HD4000 graphics which have full support.

The i3-3225 or i3-3245 both have HD4000 graphics. Those are fully supported. If you can find the i5-3475S for a good price go with that. Here is the /S/L/E folder in Mojave. Note the HD4000 graphics kext and bundles. Use a DP to HDMI adapter on an 8300 and Inject Intel in your config.plist, that's all you need. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1KJ7UP/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 works OOB.

Hi cenz92,
Could you please help me, I tried to upgrade to Mojave too ( current running H Sierra on HP8000) but it said, Mojave can not run on this machine :(.
How did you upgraded your?
Thanks
I've just downloaded the Mojave update from App Store and then installed and then I replaced the com.apple.telemetry.plugin

I just was gifted a Hp Compaq 8000 Convertible Minitower but as I was inspecting it I realized that the vga port doesn't work anymore...so I was thinking about grabbing a graphics card with a vga/hdmi port built-in. So my question is will this remedy my vga problem & if so what's a good graphics card under $100 you would recommend?

The choice depends on what version of macOS you plan on installing.
