Hi, for stability and workflow reasons (and because I'm cheap), I'm staying on Mojave for the foreseeable future. I just got a new SSD blade for my 2015 13" retina MBP. If I understand it right, when I connect the blade to my mac, It will go online to download and install Mac OS Catalina: Is there anyway to install Mojave instead? Or am I screwed?

dosdude1.com/mojave this tool is used to install newer versions of mac os on unsupported macs, but can be used to download the image files directly under Tools > Download macOs Mojave

Thanks, I downloaded the mojave installer from the app store using a link someone on other thread posted (post number 4, then number 4 on the list in the link). But I didn't get to use it.

I didn't get to use it because the mac seemed not to recognize the SSD blade when booting from the drive nor when booting from the net (and then choosing disk utility). I swallowed my pride, made a genius bar appointment and went to the apple store. Booted from their mojave server and installed mojave from it.

I don't know why the mac didn't recognized the SSD neither when using the usb drive nor when booting from the net at my house . But doing it in the apple store solved the issue.

I'm typing on the mac with the new SSD on it. Happy as a clam.

Sincerely: Thanks for the help anyway.
