yes, in your config.plist, just disable the kext that way:
from:
Code:
<dict>
                <key>Arch</key>
                <string>Any</string>
                <key>BundlePath</key>
                <string>NVMeFix.kext</string>
                <key>Comment</key>
                <string></string>
                <key>Enabled</key>
                <true/>
                <key>ExecutablePath</key>
                <string>Contents/MacOS/NVMeFix</string>
                <key>MaxKernel</key>
                <string></string>
                <key>MinKernel</key>
                <string></string>
                <key>PlistPath</key>
                <string>Contents/Info.plist</string>
            </dict>

to:
Code:
<dict>
                <key>Arch</key>
                <string>Any</string>
                <key>BundlePath</key>
                <string>NVMeFix.kext</string>
                <key>Comment</key>
                <string></string>
                <key>Enabled</key>
                <false/>
                <key>ExecutablePath</key>
                <string>Contents/MacOS/NVMeFix</string>
                <key>MaxKernel</key>
                <string></string>
                <key>MinKernel</key>
                <string></string>
                <key>PlistPath</key>
                <string>Contents/Info.plist</string>
            </dict>
It looks like my BIOS has an available update. Would that help or is it getting stuck due to another reason?

I went back thru and rebuilt the thumb drive, files, and config. I now get this screen, but can’t interact with it.

Last night when it hung at this point I left it for at least 2 hrs

previous ones showed a apfs module stop issue whereas your youtube video

I’ve tried pressing the space bar but it doesn’t do anything. Just continues to rotate between the mouse and keyboard power on images. I tried other keys and moving on the trackpad too. I see the mouse pointer but it doesn’t move.

OC folder attached. Getting closer!!!

strange why your keyboard doesn't work, try a usb keyboard to test

or try an older version of PS2Controller
