Could you walk me thru the step by step how to do the command line script, specifically what to type and when to type it
To delete smbios.plist:

Boot with -s

at the command prompt type in (<enter> = the enter key)

fsck -fy <enter>
mount -w / <enter>
sudo rm -rf /Extra/smbios.plist <enter>
reboot <enter>

I believe I successfully removed that file, but I am not for certain.

When booting with "-v -x -f" the text never told me anything about a problem with the computer as it had previously done, and in fact never actually booted... (I attached the screenshot of where it hangs)

I rebooted how I normally would, but still through my USB and I get to the grey Apple logo screen and the wheel gets stuck. The computer appears to think for a very long time ~8minutes, but does nothing.

I also tried to launch into the Unibest USB install and it hangs there too.
