Hello I'm Sagnik Ganguly, I'm trying to dual boot macOS 10.14 and Windows 10 (already installed) on a PC with Legacy BIOS. I've two hard drives one in where the windows is installed and another which is converted to GPT to install macOS Mojave 10.14 with a partion of Mac OS Extended (Journal) or APFS but when I went to the Install Disk Selection page, I'm selecting the partition but it says "This version of macOS 10.14 cannot be installed on this computer." can you help me please? 

P. S. My motherboard doesn't support UEFI. 

I'm attaching some pictures of the screens.



Which SMBIOS are you using? it needs to match the list of supported Mac models...


An example: Up to High Sierra, my old C2D Dell Vostro 200ST ran with iMac10,1 SMBIOS. Impossible to install/run Mojave or Catalina with such SMBIOS, iMac10,1 is not a supported platform. I had to switch to a supported model such as iMac13,2 to run those macOS versions.

Open disk utility and create a compatible partition On target disk. OS X could not be installed hdd which are formatted in NTFS file system.


Hpfs+ partition is the first step in for install.


In some cases see your must turn back your computer date to 10.2019 to obtain success on install. Moreover You’ll have to select the AHCI parameter on your bios computer because Mac does not support IDE.
