So I managed to install Mac OS Mojave with a new USB installer process following one of the guides found online. Everything was running well but then I start getting kernel crashes. I isolated the issues and found that it was because I was using swapID (possibly others causing the kernel crashes too). SwapID for me in High Sierra allowed me to be able to use the Photos app without my whole system freezing up (the cursor would move but I would be unable to interact with anything, iGPU disabled). Also, swapID would lower my performance.

So I remove swapID (which I believe was causing the crashes) and I am able to boot into Mojave. But now im getting the freezing issue. At this point I realized maybe I need to redo this whole thing and figure out how to resolve this issue. In my research, I found that enabling iGPU + RX 580 solves the freezing issues and allows the system to perform well with the right config settings and kexts.

For the life of me however, I cannot get my system to work with iGPU enabled and now even with it disabled, I am no longer able to boot into MacOS. I get kernel loading or cannot allocate runtime errors (clover boots fine and detects the SSDs or HDDs fine).

I have to be missing something. Other users with the same processor and graphics card have been able to get their system to work and im very frustrated at this point as I cannot figure it out.

If anyone has a similar build and could provide some input or their EFIs or something, it would be tremendously helpful.

Like your post in the other thread, you'll need to provide more information as per https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.164990/ . Since you cannot boot, pay attention to the section explicitly about that under "Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?". Without verbose boot info, your Clover config.plist and /EFI/CLOVER/ folder (sans themes), there simply isn't enough information to make any statement, as it could be any of dozens of things.

I apologize. Since I am unable to boot, I attached a picture of Verbose and my Clover folder. Uploaded now

EDIT: this ^ is with iGPU disabled.

With iGPU enabled with the BIOS settings shown in another picture, I get the following verbose (same EFI as before): see debug 2.zip

You got way to much stuff going on with your config. i repacked your efi folder for you and edited your config plist. disable your igpu in the bios and try to boot with this efi. Let me now how it goes.
Thank you for your help and time. I'll give this a shot when I get home
