i am having trouble booting macOS on my laptop

What I did was I selected all options in the binary looking menu in options in the clover and then I successfully booted to Apple logo, but after few minutes later the progress bar below the Apple logo was almost full and the progress bar stays like that. With this, the loading rainbow cursor appeared on the left corner of the screen and I cannot move the cursor, few minutes later the cursor freezes which means the rotating rainbow cursor stops spinning. When I press the power button, the cursor starts to spin again and the screen is still stuck at the Apple logo. Can anyone tell why I cannot successfully boot to macOS installer

The clover is not booting!

Plus the article says that to add a file called HFSPlus.efi which I did previously before asking this question and replacing the config.plist file from a link provided by the article. I am still having trouble booting the clover now. Please reply as soon as possible

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.
