I do not have the install option in clover, i try different USB drive, Does anyone have the solution for this?
Thanks
Yes. For the most recent beta, you must remove the .IAPhysicalMedia file from your installation media via the following command. @tonymacx86 may wish to update the original post.

Code:
rm -f /Volumes/Install\ macOS\ Mojave\ Beta/.IAPhysicalMedia

Try this. config.plist


Also, there are quite a few ig platform IDs to test.

strange but true.. it got me to the install screen.. looked like it was doing the install.. restarted and puter didn't see clover. Asked for me to insert boot drive. Arrgh. Went back. Made the boot usb from scratch again. Tried the process and it loads to clover. I click on from external -- gives me the verbose in the picture then loops back to clover after restarting. Doesn't go any further. Total boot loop. Any ideas?
I'm not an expert at clover -- are there special settings I need to customize in there? Or just go with what's already ticked?

thank you!

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.

hey there.. this is a great guide.. can someone please take a minute to give instructions on what settings in clover? I'm pretty sure that's where my issues lie. Thank you

Use cursor arrows to go to options, then go to CPU tuning and uncheck halt enabler.
return to clover boot screen and hit space bar once select verbose and safe mode.
