Yes! supported!!! but you may need to format the entire hdd and also Mojave may be little laggy. try Mojave first if that feels slow go with Sierra version by following of my guide on YouTube.

Hello, I could install Mojave without any problems. Booting from the usb-stick is possible. I think to make a mistake with clover, because without a stick comes a bios error. I would be very grateful for some tips

Can't read the text properly from the attached picture, if you're a beginner in Hackintosh you should know that you need to install Clover to HDD/SSD to be able to boot from USB. There is two way you can install the Clover to HDD/SSD. The one is downloading Clover and install it, another is copying your USB Clover and paste on HDD/SSD EFI. However, this may require to edit your BIOS boot menu and locate your clover and set boot priority to first.


If you have still had a problem attach the clover installed in HDD/SSD then attach the screenshot of problem you get while booting without USB.

How you installed Clover? Did you tried Method #2?

We all have own reason to switch or sideload from windows to mac. some switches because they love the user interface of mac, some needs to use the software that are only available on mac or some just love to hackintosh such as me. Mojave was released just a month before and many hackintosher are willing to install it, experience the new back UI, new features but to make a USB installer you need a real mac or hackintosh (not VM) pc. And due to lack of real mac most of hackintosh lovers are stuck there and I have a solution for it. You don't need a real mac you can burn the USB straight from windows using Transmac and install it directly. Excited ?? let's get started!!


Requirements
- UEFI supported Desktop/Laptop
- 16 GB or higher USB disk
- 2 GB for Desktop or 4 GB for Laptop ram or higher recommended


Preparing USB
Download Link 1 Download Link 2
  • Download the Mojave Image from above link
  • Download and install Transmac
  • Put downloaded file Mojave and Transmac into Desktop
  • Insert USB drive and Open Transmac
  • Right click on USB drive and select Format Disk For Mac.
  • Once format is complete, again Right click and select Restore with disk image.
  • Wait for finishing task (usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes)
Configuring BIOS
Once transmac completes the task reboot your system and enter to BIOS, Press F2 fro dell , usually Del or ESC on Desktop and most of the laptops. Provide the BIOS password if you've set and restore default settings and make changes as below :
  • Set boot mode to UEFI
  • Disable secure boot
  • SATA mode to AHCI
  • Disable Intel Virtualization Support
  • Disable VT for Direct I/O
Remember you laptop BIOS settings may be different and may have different label than above mentioned but will have similar words, find it and configured as listed above. And don't forget to save the settings after you have made changes. Mostly F10 to save and exit the BIOS on older laptop and desktops.

Installing System
Plug in bootable USB and reboot, then select one time boot menu, mostly F12, you can find above one time boot menu into BIOS. You'll then get a one-time boot menu and select USB UEFI disk. Then, You'll be able to see a Clover boot screen and go to options and append boot arguments as kext-dev-mode=1 nv_disable=1 -v, then go to Graphics Injector > Inject Intel > and set Fake-Id to 0x12345678, then press Enter > ESC > ESC. Finally select Boot OS X from Install Mojave Bla.. Blaa... Blaaa...,

Now, you're at verbose mode, If you get stuck here then take picture of message and attach it below to get help form Noobsplanet. At this time if you're on laptop your keyboard or touchpad may not work, If this is your case you need to plug USB Keyboard or USB mouse on your laptop for setting up(Once, we install we'll fix this). Then from the GUI list, select Disk Utility and select partition and click on Erase. set name as "Noobsplanet HDD" and select OS X Journalised and click Erase. After Erase is complete exit the disk utility and select Install macOS mojave bla.. bla.. from list. Agree the license agreement then select Noobsplanet HDD and click Install. Again this will gonna take about 30 to 60 minutes.

Post Installation
After Installation is complete, like we did above first paragraph of Installing system, set Fake-id to 0x12345678 and append boot arguments as kext-dev-mode=1 nv_disable=1 -v, now from this time we'll be selecting the Noobsplanet HDD disk instead of Install OS X from Mojave. First time when you boot you'll be asked to login through your apple id. If you don't have one then you can skip then step and setup it later from preferences.

Once, You're at desktop you need to install the Clover to HDD to be able to boot without USB. Now you may have problems with keyboard, touchpad, mouse, usb, performance, graphics problem, battery draining, brightness issue and audio, etc. I won't go all detail on this, check our full playlist video on our channel (YouTube Channel ) or See our FAQ guide and old Sierra guide. Everything is explained detail. Explore the Noobsplanet site.!! If you need help please open a thread we're always happy to hear from you. :):)
Good Luck!! (y)(y)
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get it working

Boot with fake ig-platform id i.e. 0x12345678, then rebuild the kernel caches by following command in Terminal :
Terminal:
sudo kextcache  -i /
Once, the above command has completed the task, reboot your system. This time don't set any fake id, boot normally. You should able to see your desktop.

I wasn't able to boot into the installer, I haven't installed it yet.

Clover is installed and the EFI is copied from the stick to the hard drive. I can also find the Boot64 file in the Bios boot menu and create a path, but unfortunately it doesn't work.

I guess its Clover-x64.efi and if you look carefully, there's other Clover-64.efi which as some symbol added. So, be sure to select the one which as perfect name with no symbol and additional text. (If you've installed from one of my video). And make sure you set the Clover boot order you created to first. Apply > Reboot. You should able to see. OR you can try Quick boot menu by pressing one of the F-num keys and select the new created clover boot entry.
Also, Your signature is wrong. Signature must be in one line for one system.

Thanks for the great guide, this has helped me get farther installing it on my laptop than any other guide. I have one issue that is preventing me from finishing this. I have used the CLOVER directory that you uploaded on page 1 that dealt with no having access to the BIOS settings but now I am having the issue where my USB ports aren't working and my mouse pad isnt working also. IS there any direction you could give me?

Use VoodooPs2Controller.kext and USBInjectAll.kext to Clover/Kexts/Other/

i cant type that in clover my shift key does not work but i can type anything expect this _
Use SPACEBAR on Clover Boot Screen, you will be able to see the boot arguments, select the necessary boot argument and finally, click on Boot with selected boot arguments.
