Totally skipped that part while reading the frame patching guide, thanks!Your graphics DeviceProperties include two connectors with busid = 0x02. Each connector must have a unique busid.

1. HP Elitedesk 800 G4 mini 65W@cavesdev For further support, please answer the following:
- What is the exact model of your PC (e.g. HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini)?
- What is your video port configuration (e.g. 3 x DP ports)?
- Are you using any video adapters (e.g. DP -> DVI)?
- Have you configured your BIOS according to the PDF instructions attached here?
- Have you tried creating a macOS installer using a different USB thumb drive?
- What type of device is the drive where you are trying to install macOS (SATA 2.5" SSD or M.2 NVMe SSD) and what is the exact model number of the drive?
EDIT: @cavesdev Thanks for your feedback on the OC install instructions. I have modified Step 3 here. When I first started providing draft EFIs, the EFIs weren't complete (so users needed to install OC first and then copy the selected parts of my draft EFI). My current and future EFIs will be complete and can simply be copied to Volumes/EFI.
I had a 2.5" SSD lying around and it finally worked! So the problem really was the Samsung drive. I did not try to update the firmware, I'm fine with using the SATA SSD for now, I'll try to get one WD black nvme later thanks for the suggestion.@cavesdev Before you ditch the Samsung NVMe SSD, try a couple of things first:
If you determine that the problem is the Samsung NVMe SSD and you still want to use an NVMe SSD for your macOS Volume, I am pleased with the Western Digital WD_Black NVMe SSDs. My rig is running with a WDS500G3X0C-00SJG0 500GB drive. If you end up using a 2.5" SSD, you will need to enable TRIM. Read Known Issues.
- Boot Windows and make sure the Samsung NVME SSD firmware is the latest. If there is a firmware update, update the firmware and then try installing MacOS again
- Install a 2.5" SSD (if your Mini has a SATA drive bay) and try installing MacOS on the 2.5" SATA SSD. Make sure that you can install MacOS on your 2.5" SSD. If you still have problems with the 2.5" SSD, your problem is not the Samsung NVMe SSD.
