Still stuck at 60-65%, i tryed every args,every usb,i changed boot from UEFI to legacy, and still nothing. Using -v shows me: waiting for root device. My question is, are DSDT pathces are really mandatory?cause maybe thats why is not loading.
Use a USB2 stick.
Try all USB ports.
USBInjectAll.kext may also be useful.

Please open a separate thread for future help.

Ofter i changed my usb 3.0 with 2.0 and i copied the USBinject kext, i managed to solve my problem with "waiting for root device". Apple is chargin till 70%.But ofter that in -v mode i have another kernel panic:IOCOnsoleUsers: GIOScreenLocksState 3, hs0,bs0, now 0, sm 0x0. Here are clover.zip and photo atached.

Also, with UHD, must use invalid ig-platform-id until you can patch for the pixel clock limit.

If you're installing High Sierra (10.13) to an SSD, keep in mind that the file system will be APFS, which requires apfs.efi in drivers64UEFI. Without apfs.efi in drivers64UEFI, Clover will not recognize APFS boot volumes. You can find apfs.efi at /usr/standalone/i386/apfs.efi inside of "/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents/SharedSupport/BaseBinaries.dmg".

I wasn't able to locate BaseBinaries.dmg, but was able to locate apfs.efi at /usr/standalone/i386/apfs.efi inside of '/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents/SharedSupport/BaseSystem.dmg'
