Just an update. I have successfully installed mojave on my dell optiplex 7040. The things that I need to do and will need your help from you guys is how to install the built-in ethernet card? I tried plugging my ethernet cable and it is not working. Also, how to wake up from sleep is not working. Hoping someone can help. thanks.

Keema, can you provide the conflig.plist and KEXT files you used for your install?

You'll probably need the "USBInjectAll.kext" file. when I couldn't reach my installer, it had to do with the fact that I wasn't loading all USB devices on boot.

that's why I asked Keema how they got theirs going. I'm stuck in the Reboot loop... when it tries to install.

You can try the EFI from my OptiPlex 3040 build. Link is below in my signature.

Above, pastrychef suggested using his EFI files, which he has on the link in his signature. I'm trying that out right now.
