If I want to install Mojave, any way to use the integrated graphics until NVidia comes out with the drivers without it looking like crap? Thanks.

Yes. The easy way would just be to pull the Nvidia card. If you want to leave the Nvidia card in and just use the IGPU, that's more complicated and something I've never tried...

Please post your EFI folder and I'll let you know if there are any changes you need to make to it.

I was finally able to upgrade to Mojave. Everything seems fine, computer does wake from sleep, but slowly, and I have to click both my mouse and hit a key on my keyboard to get the computer and monitor to wake. If I use one or the other, the hard drives come on but my display stays in sleep. Is this related to the CSM issue? Is sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0 still necessary (I am using 14,2 def)? I did not run that command after installation and I am on AMD now not NVidia.

@FTD0910, What's your System Preferences > Energy Saver settings?

@FTD0910,
In Mojave, I have just Wake on LAN box checked. However, I have the computer sleep set to Never. So, I sleep the computer manually. I wake it up with just a couple of mouse clicks.

I just pulled my nVidia card and plugged my 2 monitors into the iGPU. I went into the BIOS and enabled multi-monitor. When I boot to macOS, only 1 screen will work. Any advice appreciated. Thank you.

You may need to configure the ports. Please see guide below.

Installed the 10.14.4 update on my Mojave test SSD and all is well. I followed the follow procedure to arrive at a successful update.

:ch: Update all your Mac App Store apps and any other critical apps;
:ch:Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
:ch: I ran the newly released MultiBeast v11.x.x which has the latest help kexts.

Note: if you update after MultiBeast v11.x has been out a while, check to see if you need to update Lilu.kext, ApplALC and WhateverGreen kexts. They will be in the Downloads > Kexts area. AppleALC.kext is located here.​

:ch: You're now ready to run the System Preferences > Software Update to install the 10.14.4 update.
Note: Update will reboot twice; each time Clover picks the correct boot partition. So, sit back and relax.​
