I'm attempting to build my first hackintosh and am having some issues.

My build:

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370M-DS3H
CPU: Core i7-8700K
Graphics: GeForce GTX 1050Ti

Firstly,

I am able to adjust all BIOS settings according to the tonymacx installation guide except for one. I do not see an option for "Other OS", only Windows.

Also,

I tried installing the OS to the hard drive anyways and it worked but when I restart the computer without the USB that I installed the OS from, the computer gets about 2/3 through the apple loading screen and reboots. I can only boot from the installation boot drive (USB).

I'm new to this so I understand my terms may not be the best so let me know if more information is needed.

Thank you

Boot in verbose mode and post a picture of the screen when it stops.

or :
I can only boot from the installation boot drive (USB).

Boot from your USB and when you get to the desktop download and run EFI Mounter and mount the EFI partition of your USB.
Copy the entire /EFI folder from the EFI partition of your USB to the desktop.
Eject the USB.
Run EFI Mounter again and mount the EFI partition of your HDD.
Delete the entire /EFI folder from the EFI partition of your HDD.
Copy the /EFI folder from your desktop to the EFI partition of your HDD.
Restart

You should now be able to boot from your HDD in the same way that you could previously boot from your USB.

Would you happen to have a good link on how to boot in verbose mode? Please excuse my beginner’s ignorance

A good link ? Seriously ? This is a most basic hackintoshing task.
You could have saved your embarrassment by using the forum Search tool.

However, at the Clover menu screen press the spacebar and select verbose mode from the menu.

Sorry for such a basic question but thank you for helping.

I'm having the same trouble. How was this solved?
