Would it be possible to install Mojave on this machine

So, if you look around the official apple answers you see the standard “NOO YOU WILL CURSE US ALL” answers that you usually get from the die hards who believe apples BS.

So I thought I would ask here. Surely if I buy a 16” MacBook Pro I can partition the drive and install Mojave on the system right?. I really don’t want to use a VM which is what the official apple answers crew is telling people to do, I would rather run it natively. There surely has to be a way. I know some say “the graphics won’t be supported” but if we can inject graphics drivers into a hackintosh surely we can figure out a way around installing Mojave on a 16” MacBook

It will almost certainly not let you install without a fight. There are hardware and version checks built in.

There may be some workarounds that more or less brings it online with some of the drivers and features missing.

No, its not the T2 which is the issue here.

It's the systems EFI ID the OS installer accesses to make sure its version is the correct one. Then the systems boot up will load the needed drivers if present. In this case we are forcing the older OS on a newer platform so some of the hardware maybe different which then gets us into trouble!

As Apple used the same CPU's and GPU as the older 2018/19 15" model I think this will work. I haven't tested it so I can't tell for sure.
