Recently, I've activated FileVault on my system (Catalina) and everything was working fine with following drivers until one day when I tried to login from cold boot when my keyboard started freezing on password field (after multiple attempts I was able to login).

Clover drivers used before I started to noticed keyboard freezing.

AppleGenericInput.efi
ApfsDriverLoader.efi
AppleUiSupport.efi
HFSPlus.efi
AptioInputFix.efi
VirtualSMC.efi


After reading multiple threads, decided to remove the AptioInputFix and faced same problem. Then added UsbKbDxe.efi for better USB keyboard support but this time it broke my whole system. Now, when I boot my machine it straight goes to the password recovery (even after reboots, it lands up on the same screen). Tried the USB drive which used to work earlier, now this also lands me on the same password recovery screen.
