Graphics card: Nvidia GTX 650 Ti or Nvidia GT 740 or AMD R7 250x

How to fix Error code FH301 in Forza Horizon 4?
This error first shows up when you have newly installed the game. It pops up on the screen and does not let you launch the game. Though no security patch is released for this error, we have a method you could try to fix the error from your end.
Restart your computer and go into BIOS. There is a setting to allow the APU integrated Graphics to use 2 gigabytes of System Memory. Don’t change anything else. Leave everything else the way it is.
Change the “Integrated Graphics” to “FORCE”. With this setting, your Integrated Graphics will ALWAYS be primary whether you installed a separate GPU card or not. This is just temporarily to see if the game will play with your APU.
Then Change “UMA FRAME BUFFER SIZE” from “Auto’ to “2G”.This will allow the Integrated Graphics R7 to have 2 gigabytes of Video Memory. (You will have 2 gigabytes less of Memory that you will be able to use on your computer for other uses).
Save the BIOS setting and reboot.Now see if you can install or run Forza Horizon 4 game.
If the game still says your APU is not compatible then change everything back to “default” which is :
“Integrated Graphics” – “AUTO”
“UMA FRAME BUFFER SIZE” – “AUTO”
This way when you install a new separate GPU card it will automatically pick the GPU Card as your Primary Graphics.
This solution should fix the error, if not you can write to the tech support of the game for further assistance.
