      I'm currently working on a new version of INSTAHackintosh.
      Purpose:
      This will enable user to make fully customisable  Recovery, Installer and Installed.
      This is taking a completely different approach, no createmedia/startosinstall  blah blah blah.
      Mojave installed to MBR/HFS no patch needed.
      You will be able to add kexts to the Installer as well as some Apps.
      You can do the same with the Recovery and Installed.
      Will be able to make a USB/ISO or Install straight to HD.
       
      Usage: Example: To HD from Mojave
      Install High Sierra 10.13.6 to HD
      Install SecUpd2018-003HighSierra.pkg to HD
      Install NVIDIA Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.113.pkg to HD
      Install Applications to HD
      Install Kexts to HD
      Reboot to HD, Fully Updated with working video
       
      Will post a beta version ( HD only ) when it is done
      EDIT:
      would anybody happen to have an old version of my INSTAHackintosh?
      I've lost all my copies.
      No sense re-inventing the wheel.

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR HFS+ partition.
       
      To use those patched files you must follow HowTo to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
      The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.14 HFS Firmware check by crazybirdy.
       
      What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
      1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR partition.
      2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
      3. Patch to stop auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.14.
      4. This patched MBR OSInstaller will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition.
      5. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery).
      No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
       
      What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method?
      As the following....
      1. createinstallmedia method,
          needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format.
      2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12),
          install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format.
          We can manually format as MBR or GPT, HFS+ or APFS on installation screen like as 10.12.
          We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13 and 10.14 on installation screen now.
          Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, and 10.14 future versions, I think so.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version.
      3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+),
          install via stage 2 automatically, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition, and can be installed as update from previous version.

      How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?
      Just use MBR-EasyInstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
      Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q5. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave?

      And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
       

       

       
      Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_1014fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

      Please help me with this 10.9.5 system. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965p-s3 rev3.3, gpu: Ati Radeon HD6450 (dvi/hdmi/vga). 
      Using any of the 3 ports on the 6450 (dvi, hdmi, vga), I see all the white letters on black background during boot but when they complete and it's time for the graphics to start I get a black screen and sometimes a restart after that. Using Clover 4411. Is there any way to get past this?

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.12 installation on MBR partition.
       
      To use those patched files you must follow HowTo-10.12.x to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
       
      The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x patch method
       
      How to make 10.12 installer for MBR?
       
      Open Install macOS Sierra.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg first.
      1. Restore BaseSystem.dmg to HFS partition and rename the partition’s name as macOSMBR as /Volumes/macOSMBR/
      2. Copy InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.dmg to /Volumes/macOSMBR/
      3. Copy InstallESD.dmg/BaseSystem.chunklist to /Volumes/macOSMBR/
      4. Copy InstallESD.dmg/AppleDiagnostics.dmg to /Volumes/macOSMBR/
      5. Copy InstallESD.dmg/AppleDiagnostics.chunklist to /Volumes/macOSMBR/
      6. Remove /Volumes/macOSMBR/System/Installation/Packages
      7. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages to /Volumes/macOSMBR/System/Installation/Packages
       
      8.OSInstaller replace to
      /Volumes/macOSMBR/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/OSInstaller.framework/Versions/A/OSInstaller
       
      9. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages/Essentials.pkg/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
      to /Volumes/macOSMBR/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
      (use Pacifist v3.2.14 to access the contents of Essentials.pkg, and make directory /System/Library/Kernels first.)
      (Need kernel only if you use Chameleon with -f to boot the installer disk, needn't with Clover.)
       
      10. Boot to /Volumes/macOSMBR/ to install macOS.
       
      And, need a /Extra/SMBIOS.plist supported with /Volumes/macOSMBR/System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
      Set a SMBIOS with Chameleon Wizard.
       
      Work fine with Enoch r2839+
      and /Extra/kernel.plist with
      <key>KernelBooter_kexts</key>
      <string>Yes</string>

      If you want to patch MBR by yourself, here is the patch code, works on 10.12.0~10.12.6
       
      perl -pi -e "s|\x48\x8B\x78\x28\x48\x85\xFF\x0F\x84\x91\x00\x00\x00\x48|\x48\x8B\x78\x28\x48\x85\xFF\x90\xE9\x91\x00\x00\x00\x48|g" OSInstaller
