How to install macOS Mojave on incompatible computers

Apple has provided a list of computers compatible with MacOS Mojave, which is not included many models but thanks to a free third-party tool from the developer known as “DosDude” advanced Mac users can install the new operating system.

In fact, the utility Mojave Patcher Tool creates a modified USB drive that you can use to install macOS Mojave on an unsupported Mac.

We do not recommend to use the utility on your main computer because the OS will not run stably on incompatible computers. For example, some computers may not work the network that the iSight camera, the accelerated graphics processor, and also may have different performance errors and other problems.

On the web developer site DosDude there is a detailed user manual and utility itself.
