Hello Big-W, bios was setup as above already, latest version. When i put EmuVariableUEFI i cannot boot.
Fiddled around a bit and installed Catalina. The problem is that i have white screen with mouse now :(

My Nvidia works for sure i used it before computer upgrade.

Error allocating 0x11c01 pages – tried OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi, OsxAptioFixDrv2-64.efi, OsxAptioFixDrv3-64.efi, OsxAptioFixDrv-free2000, AptioMemoryFix but still no luck. It just sometimes won’t boot. Happens 1-2 times from 10 reboots.
Something you can try here.
