I followed RehabMan's laptop clover guide, and did the following based on it:
- Clover UEFI settings
- Only essential kexts I added were FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller, and USBInjectAll
- Used the config.plist recommended for the HD5500 and did not modify it
- Disabled secure boot on the laptop

I thought I would get at least a little further, a user with a similar pc said this guide alone got them most of the way there

I am using a USB3 stick for the install, which it doesn't recommend, but I tried the install through the USB2 port which didn't help.

I've attached a verbose attempt, any thoughts?

"Problem Reporting" files are incomplete.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Thank you both for your advice. feartech, I picked up a usb2. RehabMan, reading your docs made me realize that I needed to extend my EFI to 200mb. Doing both of those things it still quickly halted, but the verbose printout was different. RehabMan, I attached CLOVER.zip, but I'm not entirely sure if that's what you wanted. It's just a zip of the Clover folder (without themes) after running Clover and before running createinstallmedia. The docs say "press F2 then F4 at main Clover screen before collecting" but I did not know what that meant.

should be a folder called "Other" in kexts folder, then kexts go in the Other folder

Done with kexts in Other folder this time, still stopping very suddenly. The verbose printout is still pretty similar to the first attempt, even with a 200mb EFI.

Uploading the output for completeness, but it was the same. I was using the newest Clover already, so this time I tried yours instead. I also set the ig-platform-id to 0x12345678.

From where did you download macOS?
What version?
On what hardware did you create your USB installer?
