Download didn't work for full-download, but only the 22MB installer. So I start the installation and first Step of Installer is to download the stuff. 
Before starting the real installation-Process I quit the installer. 
Than I've created a Package on CLI described here:  https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201372

Do you think the Install-ISO might me broken? Should I try to create an new ISO and try again?
BTW: Might my Hardware also work with Mojave

Try this

See the complete video then when your install Clover your not need to change the EFI

Look secound image for the setup Clover ESP for legacy config like you

@chris1111

Today I've time to retry the installation. Thanks a lot for your Video. 
All in the Video is crystal clear, but up from Minute 7:00 I don't know what you mean with this.
Should I restart MacOS and run the CreateInstallMedia-Applilcation again?

I mean restart then Install macOS

After installing macOS on SSD run Clover inside bundle application for post installation. This is for making the drive bootable without USB

With the latest release its no longer necessary

Restart from USB-Stick didn't work for me. 
Give me some notice, that I should activate UEFI in BIOS (default is Legacy). 
But it seems he didn't find any tile which could be added to the BootMenu for EFI.
Did you have a hint? Which File should I choose for the UEFI Bootentry?

Good and bad news.
Good: The Install-Process seems to take longer than before. (Figured out, seems to be caused of the connected Network-Cable. Installer download some Packages from com.apple.dmg...)

Bed: The Installation abort again with this error:

Ok, so maybe it's better to give it a try with a new graphic-card?!
what's a better choice for a low-budget Card with highest possible performance?
You notice GT 710. What are other Cards in this price-range (maybe from ATI) which works OOB. 
So I could have a look at classifieds to find some used hardware... or should I better upgrade the CPU with one that had Intel HD3000 build in?

@fedaamahmoud
A GT710 would be better, OOB works with Mojave with Metal.
The GT620 can not do metal and therefore needs the rollback from the HighSierra.
Install this Kext from HS with KextUtility2.6.6:

@chris1111 But mine is HighSierra, not Mojave 
I would try mojave, but it will not work, because I only had an HD2000 & Nvidia GT220 card. Both are not supported by Mojave, right?!

@chris1111 Ok, good news. Thanks a lot so far for helping hands.

 

I'm now on the Install-Panel of Mojave... :thumbsup_anim: Your Internet-Connection
I've connected the LAN-Cable, and my fritz.box (router) is configured as dhcp. So by default, nevertheless what PC I've connected to the LAN-Cable, the I-Net connection work. But If I choose Using DHCP, I got an message that connection couldn't established. Does I have to configure it later ?

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?
       
      CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X
      MB: Gigabyte Aorus X470 Ultra Gaming
      Memory: 4x8 GB HyperX Predator, 3000 MHz Cl15
      Storage: Samsung Evo 970 Nvme 512 GB, Crucial MX500 500GB SATA
      GPU: MSI Radeon RX580 GamingX 8GB

      Hi team,
       
      I'm looking for the best route to achieve this upgrade, so I have been stuck with HS since Nvidia drivers stopped being supported on newer MacOS releases. Now I'm having an AMD 5700 xt on the way and want to plan the upgrade properly. I have added some information below and questions that might help with your recommendation.
       
      Current GPU 1080 ti with Nvidia webdrivers installed. So should I uninstall the webdriver before adding the new GPU? Clover is being used and EFI attached. Any kext must be removed? or parameters adjusted MacOS HS 10.13.6, should I upgrade before using the new GPU? CPU: 9900K Motherboard:ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) Dual Monitors I have a Time machine backup, Do you recommend a fresh install? and If I did, will I be able to restore my data/apps as-is?  
      Please let yourself free to explore further aspects to considers.

      I installed Olarila Mojave 10.14.6 and managed to install 1st gen intel HD graphics but it was bit laggy bcos this gnu doest support metal and its a old machine, so I decided to move to Olarila High Sierra.
      I installed it with most of things working fine expect some issues, for that I want to make SSDT and DSDT to make it run without glitches.
       
      I am atteching my sendme.zip , can some take a look to my current settings and suggest me some changes

      Hi!

      Could anyone help me installing High Sierra on this system?
      I succesfully installed Sierra before on this system with help of Jake Lo (thanks!!), I just wondering if could High sierra possible to installed on this system?
      Boot stopped at this. I'll attach my Clover folder and a picture from boot.
      UEFI enabled, and for skylake I used IntelGraphicsDVMTfixup and IntelGraphicsFixup kexts. My bios is very limited and does not have any option to change dvmt prealloc or anything else.
      Everything works fine on Sierra.
      Here is my system:

      *REUPLOADED updated CLOVER folder, attached as "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip" (uploaded to OSXLatitude forum, can't upload here).
       
      I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide:
       
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive):
      1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 
      2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,
      3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
      1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.
      2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.
      3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image.
      4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.
      5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT!
      6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above.
      7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found)
      It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
