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

EDIT ******

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?

Gigabyte GT 710 is the one I have

Your macOS Install app seems incomplete (it should be around 5 Gb). Re-download it from the Mac App Store and make a new usb pen.

@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:

Unfortunately, I can not upload, it is larger than 10MB.

@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 ?

      Appreciate your help

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      So I FINALLY got my High Sierra thumb drive to boot and once I got to the language selection screen, I noticed I lost all connectivity to my keyboard and mouse.
       
      i tried plugging in both into all of my USB ports (2.0, 3.0, 3.1) to no avail.
       
      i made sure I had the latest USBInject kext and XHCI-Unsupported kext in the Other folder.
       
      i also noticed whilst troubleshooting, the thumb drive will ONLY boot using Verbose and plugged into one of the 2 3.1 ports.
       
      does anyone have ANY suggestions?? I’ve been struggling for a week now on this!!
       
      thanks in advance

      Buongiorno a tutti,
      E la prima volta che scrivo su questo forum, spero di non sbagliare nulla!
      Scrivo qua sperando che qualcuno di voi possa darmi una grossa mano, perchè ho letto di tutto, visto qualsiasi video possibile, ma non riesco proprio ad uscirne fuori.
      Ci avevo già provato 3 anni fa, ma ero riuscito solo su un notebook Sony, sul fisso non ero riuscito a fare nulla. Dicevano che c'erano problemi con i driver della serie Skylake, così ho voluto riprovare ora a distanza di anni.
      Premetto che non sono un informatico, non ho conoscenze particolari. Sono semplicemente un ragazzo che si informa, legge tutorial ed esegue, quindi chissà che la soluzione non sia in realtà una banale sciocchezza.
       
      Dunque, il problema consiste nel fatto che, in circa 8 ore di prove, non sia ancora riuscito ad andare oltre il caricamento del logo, dopo aver selezionato la chiavetta da clover.
      Sto cercando di installare High Sierra, ho provato con una chiavetta con un programma che non ho capito bene perchè, ma non posso scriverlo qui, e una con Clover Configurator (che tra l'altro, nella schermata boot mi da un'interfaccia diversa da quella che ho visto nel tutorial, o anche solo 3 anni prima), ma il problema è sempre lo stesso: dopo circa metà caricamento, o mi esce il simbolo di divieto, o si riavvia il computer, riportandomi nel boot di clover.
      Ho provato un po' di flags, come -v, -x, -s, -f, nv_disable=1 (tra l'altro, per evitare problemi al principio, ho impostato la scheda video di intel come primaria), cpus=1, dart=0, Slide=0, insomma, qualsiasi cosa leggessi in giro che avesse portato esiti positivi, la provavo
      Ho provato su porte sub 3.0, 2.0 e le 2.0 dietro al pc.
      Penso sia irrilevante, ma nel caso, sto usando una chiavetta da 32 gb.

      Nella firma dovrebbero esserci tutte le specifiche del mio PC, non so se debba postare altro. Nel caso scusatemi, ditemi pure cosa manca che la aggiorno.
      Spero davvero che qualcuno di voi possa aiutarmi. Ho un MacBook Air (High Sierra l'ho scaricato da qui) e ho scoperto quanto sia più affidabile usare Final Cut rispetto a quel bug chiamato Premiére Pro che ho usato per anni, e vorrei poterlo usare anche sul fisso, senza dover acquistare un iMac. Ho letto in giro che con Mojave non è supportata l'accelerazione grafica, per questo vorrei installare High Sierra.

      Grazie mille a chiunque vorrà aiutarmi!

      I'm in the middle of my first hackintosh (High Sierra) on my ZenBook Pro UX501VW-US71 laptop using the Vanilla Install. I've tried using different config.plst files and I've gotten the furthest with RehabMan's own (linked here). It hangs at error message IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0.   Can anyone help me figure out what changes to make to the config.plst file for my specific laptop (which is where I assume the problem lies)   System Specs: Intel Skylake Core i7­-6700HQ 2.6 GHz Quad­core
