Hello folks,
I've been trying for a few days now to install MacOS Mojave on my new build:
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370 HD3 (BIOS F10)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-8700
  • Graphics: XFX Radeon RX 570 RS
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB DDR4 2666MHz
  • Storage: Samsung SSD 970 Evo Plus, 500 GB, m.2, NVMe
I've been following many guides, tweaking config.plist, kexts and .efi files, but the further I've been was with the attached EFI folder (even if it froze at the same point with less .efi files and kexts).
It freezes when it starts installing Mojave on the SSD (sometimes even before, while typing the password to access the drive).
FYI I'm running Windows 10 smoothly on a separate SSD.
Many thanks, and let me know if you need more information.

Update: Samsung SSD 970 Evo Plus turns out to be completely incompatible with hackintosh. I read it on this thread and experienced it. Once unplugged I was finally able to install Mojave on another HDD.
