Here's a quick guide to create a macOS Mojave 10.14 Public Beta Installation USB using Clover. Please note, this guide is not universal, and may not work for all systems.


STEP 1: Download macOS Mojave Public Beta

1. Enroll in the Free Apple Beta Software Program
2. Download Public Beta Access Utility
3. Run installer. The Mac App Store will open.
4. Download macOS Mojave Public Beta

The Application Install macOS Mojave Beta will appear in /Applications.


STEP 2: Prepare Bootable USB Drive
This step extracts the Installer contents, then installs Clover bootloader to the USB stick.

1. Insert the USB drive
2. Open /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility
3. Highlight the USB drive in left column
4. Click on the Partition tab
5. Click Current and choose 1 Partition
6. Click Options...
7. Choose GUID Partition Table
8. Under Name: type USB (You can rename it later)
9. Under Format: choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
10. Click Apply then Partition
11. Open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal
12. Type the following, enter password and hit enter. This command completely erases the USB, then creates native installer media from the Install Mojave Beta Application.

Release:
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app --nointeraction
Beta:
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave\ Beta.app --nointeraction

Upon completion, the USB will be renamed Install macOS Mojave Beta.

13. Download the most recent standalone Clover installer from the download section.
14. Install UEFI or Legacy Clover version using the USB (Install macOS Mojave Beta) as the target.
15. Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/ and add FakeSMC.kext
16. (Optional) Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/ and add your ethernet kext
17. (Optional) Navigate to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/ and add NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

Your Clover Installation USB is now finished.

I have a 1050ti but it is very laggy.
If you'll manage to get your GPU work let us know!

what driver you used, native or web driver?
I tried with last web drivers (using nvidia-update.sh), set off invidia inject, nv_disable and turned on NvidiaWeb.

Also using last Lilu, NvidiaGraphicFixUp and Shiki.

Thank you, but you neglected to specify which Clover options should be selected when installing it to USB...

Please would you disambiguate:

"13. Download the most recent standalone Clover installer from the download section."

There's NVRAM and non-NVRAM - which? Thanks.
