      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR HFS+J 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+J partition.
      5. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR HFS+J and GPT HFS+J 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.
      3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+, remove files, no more update),
          install via stage 2 automatically, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format.

      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 Q7. How to update 10.14.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
       
      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?

      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>
