You may have to spoof the IGPU. Similar process as for SSDT-DiscreteSpoof.aml, but using the IGPU ACPI path.
That will keep base graphics drivers from loading against the IGPU.
Try that next.
Then hopefully the base drivers will work for your Nvidia. Note that you will need to set config.plist/Graphics/Inject/NVidia=false (you currently have it true, which will inject spoof properties on Nvidia... look at Devices/AddProperties).
If the base drivers can't be used on the Nvidia, then you'll probably need to pre-install the Nvidia web drivers. Will require another computer, and some transplanting of the SSD back and forth between that computer and this one...
I have my other PC build with latest High Sierra and an m2 slot so if needed I can pop the NVME drive into there for drivers/troubleshooting/etc.
Going to try to spoof the IGPU today and change the config to Nvidia inject false. Will be back with the outcome.
Just a thought but you may be able to get farther booting on the laptop if you connected an external display to the Thunderbolt 3 port on the back. That port is always connected to the Intel GPU, even on GSync models, and is the reason why the Intel GPU is still shown in Windows. I have a cheap $15 USB-C to Displayport adapter and I think USB-C to HDMI exists as well, it just needs to use "Displayport alternate mode".
If you could get it booting you may be able to install the Nvidia web drivers or do further troubleshooting.
Worth a try. This is my first piece with a USB-C port so I don’t have any accessories for that yet. Guess it’s time to invest into a couple of adapters.
