SysPrefs->Displays, Option + click on Scaled.
I tried that and still only get 3240x2160.
Even with RDM app, It shows 1620x1080 with the lighting bolt icon next to it but when i click it the selection isnt made nor does the resolution change.

Double check your work regarding display override file creation/installation.

And no further ideas without problem reporting files as requested in the FAQ.

Hi. Many thanks for a great community. I have literally studied every step in this thread (original post) and above post (mini guide) to get Mojave installed on my Surface Book 2 15" (Nordic keyboard). I'm up to nearly 48 hours of different tries and troubleshooting. I have tried different macOS versions like High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina but none can get passed *see attached picture* when starting the installer in Verbose mode from manually created Clover USB.

Followed this to create Clover USB:https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Clover (RehabMan's) is MBR with 2 partitions and flashed the install files with "createinstallmedia method". Have tried different kext files but no difference. I have only changed one thing in config.plist and that is ig-platform-ids to 0x12345678. Do I need to change more things? I'm pretty new to this. Is there anyone that can point me in the right direction.

Thank you!

OsxAptioFixDrv, OsxAptioFix2Drv, OsxAptioFix3Drv or AptioMemoryFix.efi

Thank you for the reply. Can you be a bit more specific cuz I'm not exactly sure if you mean in EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI (I see AptioMemoryFix.efi here) or if it's supposed to be placed in EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI (don't see any AptioMemoryFix.efi here).

latest versions of clover has had a directory re order

old version:
EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI

new version:
EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI

remove
drivers64UEFI folder

and then try one of those files one at a time in
EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI folder
