I ran the installer again, and I actually managed to avoid the gIOLockState 3 error if I boot from internal graphics, however then I end in a reboot cycle, with the text scrolling too fast to properly see what is even going on.
I booted up in single user mode, and found that in Library/Extensions i had a NvidiaGraphicsFixup kext, which in now deleted, but I am still stuck at gIOScreenLockState for any configuration but single user mode.
the problem then seems to be that nv_disable=1 fails to actually disable non-accelerated graphics?
Is there any other way to force VESA mode?
I checked again, both Lilu and whatevergreen are in the kext folder on the EFI drive.
All these booting attempts from my USB stick were made with nv_disable=1 and I am getting the gIOLockState 3 errors.
I also tried booting with -x, to the same result.
Booting with -s insofar works as I do get access to a command line interface, but no graphics whatsoever
I can boot using the stick or the recovery partition, but using the EFI directly from USB should be the same as copying it over?

The only suggestion for this was loading it using -disablegfxfirmware, leaving me again at gIOLockState 3
I also tried booting using -x...
Thank you very much for your advice, but with your changes I am still ending up at gIOLockState 3, trying it both with and without nv_disable=1
Is there some way to remove/deactivate the webdrivers, I did boot the machine without them when I set it up the first time?
I initialize the PCI first, I also tried it the other way around, but I end up back at gIOLockState 3
I am using the EFI of my USB stick now, on this one I now installed the Lilu and Whatevergreen kexts, but they end me back at the gIOLockState 3

My High Sierra installation broke, so I used the recovery partition to reinstall High Sierra.
After the installation, my disk booted up once, doing some more installation, but now I can't boot.

My High Sierra installation broke, and I am at a loss on how to get it back to work again.
