Alright, I don't know how I missed this before. I am getting "busy timeout[0], (240s_, kextd wait(0): "AppleACPICPU" once I get past the lilu kext error. What really has me stumped as that I get this even when trying to boot from a recovery USB.

I am uploading a video of the boot process, in case it can help out in any way. It seems as though I get the same errors no matter what drive I boot from, but I can upload another video if it is needed.

Make sure you have the FakeSMC.kext in the /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder on the EFI partition of your Recovery USB.

I used Multibeast and I am not finding an EFI folder as much as that doesn't make sense.


**Edit** I don't have access to a working Mac at the moment so I'm not sure how to mount the EFI partition. I can browse the files, but only through an Ubuntu usb boot drive. I am going to attatch the FakeSMC file from the SSD inside the hackintosh. Is there a way to disable this or is there no way around it? I have spent a few hours googling and trying different combos of boot args to no avail.

Turns out mounting the partition was super simple.
Here is the FakeSMC From the new multibeast boot drive

What is the purpose of attaching your FakeSMC.kext ?
I dunno lol? I am trying to find help and I am not sure 100% what I am doing. Maybe something is wrong with the file and someone else can tell me what the issue is.

Here is the config.plist you asked for before.

Your config.plist is a joke - No prospect of it working.

Try this edited version and report (any) progress :

Thank you kindly for the edited config file. I removed the old config.plist and placed the copy you supplied in the same directory. I am still unable to boot into mac os unfortunately. The text scrolls much faster than before, so I took another video so I could go back over it slower and try to make sense of it. You could probably guess that I had no idea what I was looking for though.

Also, an option to boot into windows is now showing in clover for some reason. I haven't changed any other files or inserted any additional boot drives.

If it isn't going to take too much time would you mind giving me a hint as to what was wrong with my original config file? I am really trying to learn how this works so I can properly troubleshoot myself.

Here is the video if you would like to take a look.
