  • A simple equation to explain a macOS installation is as follows:

  1. Successful Boot of macOSMojave USB Installer Disk to Utility Screen and HDD installation= Full & uncorrupt macOSMojave file in a good 16GB USB Disk+ Appropriate CLOVER Version with properly stocked drivers64UEFI & kexts/Other + Correctly edited config.plist in the hidden EFI Partition and Properly set BIOS options to help CLOVER to boot .
  2. Failure to Boot= Problem with Installed MacOS and/or wrong CLOVER version and/ or poorly stocked CLOVER/drivers64UEFI and/ or poorly stocked kexts/Other and /or badly edited config.plist and/ or bad BIOS options
  3. What to provide to the Forum to get help when boot fails.

  • Hardware SPECS ( Make and Model of MoBo+CPU+Graphics+ Target hard disk)
  • Proof of
    • good macOSMojave download+
    • Clover Version used+
    • Compressed CLOVER folder -> #4
    • BIOS Screen shots -> #33
      or
    • whole list of BIOS choices including
      • BIOS version with Date of release+
      • Boot Option Priorities List showing First Boot Device +
      • Disabled Options and Enabled options like
        • USB controllers,
        • SATA controllers and Mode ,
        • Initial Display Device , and
          • DVMT Pre-Allocated if initial Display is IGFX,
        • Lan Controller,
        • Audio Controller
  • Verbose boot screen image

I have 0 clue how to read that code. It all looks like gibberish.

  • Take a photo of the 'gibberish code" of Verbose Boot screen when it freezes, and upload that to this Forum.
    • Somebody may be able to read and interpret that verbose boot screen image for you and suggest your best next step.

My current dilemma
  • Your Verbose boot is showing evidence for an incipient USB port failure.
  • This indicates imminent "garbled text" and "Prohibit Entry Sign" error on the Display screen if you can capture it with your Camera.
  • This has many causes.
  • To diagnose :
  • Upload CLOVER and BIOS screen shots as suggested in my earlier #5 post with links> #4 and #33
Edited to add a link: You can get a little more details about the problem and fixes from -> #2
