Sure, but it is nothing special.
I made an installation USB from the downloaded High Sierra install app, installed and applied Multibeast.

Now I updated to Mohave. There used to be problems with earlier versions of HS that crashed iTunes. These are now gone.
Some videos on websites crash now Safari again. I had that problem before, so I need to look up the solution in this thread.

I would recommend to apply the hacked BIOS for this mobo, so one can install nvme SSDs. Some magician was able to replace the RAID functionality with native NVME SSD support. I replaced my ageing SATA Samsung 840 Pro SSD with a 960 Evo SSD. Really awesome.

Please note that I do not have a GFX card like you do, so you need to alter your configuration accordingly.

I can't seem to be able to replicate the fix for the iGPU Safari video issues, where e.g. twitter videos crash safari.
Using Firefox is a workaround, but sometimes websites have videos embedded which one does not know in advance,
so the system just crashes.

Is there any solution for this in Mojave?

Many thanks in advance.

There is something off with the iGPU settings under Mohave.
The App Store crashes for example.

Is someone else experiencing this?

@ColdCross : I've your setup, same mobo and Proc.
Actually I'm on Yosemite (Chimera bootloader).
I've prepared an USB with Mojave installation but I'm not able to boot from the USB.
When I choose the USB as startup device then my windows instance start instead of the Clover bootloader.
Can you help me....
Maybe I must physically disconnect all the other drives.

Thanks you

P.S. I've used the same USB to install a new machine Z370 with no problem.

I am not exactly an expert.

Since the USB works elsewhere it must be created correctly.
I think disconnecting drives is a good idea, just not to delete some partition by accident.

Since Chimera and Clover are quite different, it may be a good idea to format the installation disk with your windows partition to utterly destroy it. Then remove all drives but the USB and install destination and attempt the Mohave installation with the installer formatting the disk from scratch.

Good luck and let us know how it went!

Very strange, I've created again the bootable USB (on the same key) with Mojave and this one boot without a problem. ?!?!
