I also had this issue and was already using OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi as default.

So what I did to fix it was, on another Mac:

run the command
Code:
Df -h
to find the volume name (ie Macintosh HD 1 in my case).

Then, to rebuild the kernel cache:

Code:
sudo touch /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD\ 1/System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD\ 1
However in my case that command produced errors, so I deleted the cache using this command:

Code:
sudo rm -rf /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD\ 1/System/Library/prelinkedkernel
And then re-ran the "sudo touch ..." command, and I was able to boot successfully.

@TimelordSR, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard, CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card.
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard (Mobo).

SOLVED!

I also had this issue.
FYI: This happens when your system's got corrupted prelinkedkernel file.

This is how you fix it:

1. I booted to the installer terminal, then there are two commands.

Code:
rm -rf /Volumes/CorruptMacDrive/System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel
then

Code:
touch /Volumes/CorruptMacDrive/System/Library/Extensions/ && kextcache -u /Volumes/CorruptMacDrive/

Remove OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi from EFI/EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI and install OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi to resolve the issue.

The OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi driver can be installed through Clover Configurator or Clover Installer.
where can I fine the EFI/EFI/Clover /drivers64UEFI? and where can I install?

Download Clover Configurator (Global Edition)
Open Clover Configurator
Mount your EFI partition
Check the Install drivers section and delete/add driver(s).

After updating to Clover version 4586 (and doing no other system changes) I also ran into this dreaded "Error Loading Kernel Cache".

After many boot attempts I then removed the disk from system and attached it via USB to my MacBook.
I then tried downgrading clover to 4533 (my previous version) - no luck.
I also tried removing the kext cache as suggested by Nightsd - no luck.
Finally what worked for me was using the Clover 4586 installer to add the OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi to my EFI partition.

Thanks to all in this forum for great suggestions!
