When formatting your UniBeast USB, remember to choose the GUID Partition Map in the Scheme drop-down.
Part of "Create a Bootable USB Drive with UniBeast"​
Otherwise you might get "Reboot and Select proper Boot device" message when trying to boot.​

This was a great step by step setup. The only thing it didn't really mention was checking the USB inject boxes in PCI options in the Clover setup. That tripped me up a few times. Otherwise Awesome!

If your Mojave installation reboots when it requests your network/internet settings, then you should turn off internet settings, and continue installing Mojave. If you have trouble later with a reboot at the Apple logo, then you should press space on Clover and block injected Ethernet kext. After that, your computer should restart correctly. I suggest to put this at the troubleshooting section.

Hello moderators, please put a warning at the top, to let know the people that there is no sense in installing Mojave with Nvidia graphic cards. I wasted all my day yesterday to realize that it is impossible to get Nvida working on Mojave. If you are downgrading to High Sierra, and you need to download it, this link works: https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/macos-high-sierra/id1246284741?mt=12

Sounds like a good idea. There are other ways to find this out too. Have a look at the graphics section of the latest buyer's guide and you'll only see AMD cards there. There is also a fully detailed thread in Desktop Compatibility that covers the topic of Nvidia and Mojave/Catalina support.

Yes, in my case I was updating my hackintosh to Mojave, so I wasn't looking to buy hardware.

You select UEFI or Legacy.
...depending on the age of your motherboard (chipset). Modern motherboards use the UEFI UniBeast option.
