@Stork,
Have you updated to Mojave with this build? If so, does everything still work?
I keep forgetting to document how I did it. But, it's easy. I mentioned it in Post #1646.

After you install Mojave, see my post here to get ready for Catalina.

I have a bootable Mojave USB created in a Unibeast 9.2.0. I installed it on another PC without any questions, and then it goes to such a menu

For those of you who are masochists and have updated to Catalina, you can see why I advocating not upgrading to a new macOS until the .3 update, especially Catalina.


Additionally, Catalina won't run 32bit apps. I always wait until at least the .3 update of macOS to make sure Apple gets the major bugs corrected.

BTW, get the GO64 freeware utility to identify all your 32bit applications so you can update them or get rid of them and find new ones that 64bit applications. See this article about more information on using GO54 and the 32bit application issue.


Finally, Mojave has mature UniBeast and MultiBeast. Use the tonymacx86 guide:

Yes,
I made a mistake of upgrading Catalina, and all went South! It took only one hour to revert back! Well, I ended up upgrading from Sierra to Mojave.
I have a horrible video card on my ASUS Maximus VIII Hero, and wondering if I could upgrade to a 3D-capable video card, such as NVIDIA Quadro P4000? Anyone tried this?
