Hi there,

I updated my config to Mojave few days ago.
I began on Sierra, then High Sierra. Here was my first config guide => https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-sierra-on-msi-z170i-gaming-pro-ac.235224/

Config:
Motherboard: MSI Z107I Gaming Pro AC
Processor: Core i7-6700
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT (8GB) x2
CPU Cooler: Corsair H75
HD: Samsung SSD 1To
Graphic card: Inno3D GeForce GTX 1070

I used this tuto: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/update-directly-to-macos-mojave.260654/ to update to Mojave.
It took a very very very long time to update... Be patient. It finally works. All devices work perfectly: usb, sound, bluetooth, etc.

Only a huge problem with the graphic card... But it's normal. I was using a Nvidia graphic card: Inno3D GeForce GTX 1070.
Of course, display was not good at all, and no driver is available. So I followed this hack to get something acceptable => https://www.travelertechie.com/2018/09/nvidia-web-drivers-mojave-workaround.html
In my case this hack works with my 1070.

I think, it's "ok" if you are doing basic stuff with your Hackintosh...
I didn't keep it because I'm doing a lot of video editing. So I replaced it by a RX 480 Radeon.

I hope this post could help people using a Inno3D GeForce GTX 1070 on Mojave...

I replaced it with one RX480 to do video editing!

But display with 1070 was ok, but I lost acceleration system of the graphic card. So for someone who is doing simple things with his hackintosh, it will work. It's not perfect, but it works.
