Hi guys,

I'm really stressed with my build right now. I updated my graphics card because I wanted to update my system to Mojave.
So I created a stick to install and there is no problem while installing at all.
After I successfully installed Mojave onto my SSD, I got two boot options:
„Boot macOS Install Prebooter from Preboot“ and "Boot macOS Install from Macintosh SSD“.
It doesn't matter which one I choose, I nearly always stuck at the booting process at the line apfs module start 1334.
Then, after a couple of seconds I'm getting a prohibition sign with "still waiting for root device".
The thing is, after several times of trying it passes the line and booted successfully.
I reached the desktop and everything went fine so far.
After rebooting, I'm getting the same error even though I booted the exact same way.

I just couldn't figure it out, why it works that one time.
The one time it worked, I deleted the rootless=0 parameter from my config.plist.
But as I wrote, after rebooting, the same error again.

What I tried:
different USB-Ports,
different USB-Sticks,
different Clover UEFI-Drivers(used all osxAptio, but only one of them at the same time, of course)
different SATA-Ports for my SSD,
formatted my SSD with HFS+, instead if APFS,
trimmed my kext folder to only the ones, I need. These are:
FakeSMC.kext
AppleALC.kext
USBInjectAll.kext
LiLu.kext
Whatevergreen.kext

I also attach my config.plist, I'm using.

How can it be, that I could booted successfully that one time?


My System:
ASRock ZH77Pro3 Mainboard
Intel i5 3570K
Arez Radeon 580
12GB RAM

Hopefully you guys have an idea.
Thankfully in advance

Not sure whether this is the answer you are looking for, but I had the exact same error when the text would just hang. After a lot of experimenting, I figured it was because of my BIOS. Did you update your BIOS by any chance? I ended up downgrading my BIOS by one increment and it immediately fixed the problem.

Cant image but it seems to work now.
I downgraded my BIOS to v1.0, changed the osxAptio fix to #1 and I was able to boot 5 times successfully in a row.

Thanks a lot guys. So happy that I didnt buy that graphics card for nothing

I also update my bios today and mac stopped booting

Is there any other ways to solve this problem (without downgrading BIOS)?
