Hey All, I am having an issue where the the USB boots perfectly fine but cannot find the installation media. My download of Mojave is 6.3gb. On the USB it appears to be closer to 6GB. I have seen on different threads that this might be related to the new file format. Anyone have any ideas?
Check your system bios to make sure it is set to boot from your USB installer

What system ID or model does clover bootloader show?

Check time and date setting in motherboard bios?
Date and time are correct except for day light savings.

I tried applying my old Serria .plist and from the clover boot log I can see it is trying to use iMac, which is correct.

Using ProductName from config: iMac13,2

But now the system no longer boots.

i m also facing same problem...i m on now high sierra 10.13.6....help plz
Same issue here, tried every variation of the commands I can find online. Wondering if it has something to do with using the Mojave beta? I can't seem to find a Sierra/HS installer in the App store to go back. Either way I have shelved the project until launch update and the version 10.14 is recognized. Plenty of other stuff to do anyway...

Well the official is out in the App Store. I run the OLDEST board on here probably, Gigabyte EP45-UD3P quad core 9550 Clover spoofed to a late 2013 iMac 14,2 - running High Sierra, currently with non EFI Clover. I am currently making the install USB just fine, even with the non support error, to do so do. this,

Make a USB disk normal mac way , 1 partition/guid, journalized then name it USB copy paste this line in terminal, type admin pw and wait.

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

If your at least El CapitaN or newer, you will get a message like this below...but just wait. It WILL MOVE, just slower. Then copy the utilize you need also to the disk, like Clover Configurator, Clover boatloader, etc. Then run Clover and choose the USB as target to make it hack bootable, then rock on. Install as normal, CCC your drive before upgrading so you have a fallback option. If my old a$s board can do this, your newer ones definitely can.

WARNING: "--applicationpath" is deprecated in macOS 10.14 and greater. Please remove it from your invocation.

Please report back on your Nvidia card working or not? There’s a thread here about Mojave graphics. My GT 710 works, with metal but no open CL. Luxmark and Geekbench crash. But Uningine heaven, Valley and Cinebench open GL work.
