I'm pretty sure the 2nd post has 2 mistakes when referring to the clover boot into usb installation... I think the 1st time only is to USB then hard drive... right?
nope

use latest clover version via sourceforge
I have a similar issue (see attached).

I was using the clover recommended by rehabman in the guide, which is behind the latest. I tried installing the latest (5033) but it wouldn't even install -- just kept saying there was an error. I then tried the second latest (5018) but it doesn't seem to play with rehabman's config.plist. I was still unable to boot and I didn't even get as far as I did with his version of clover.

I've done several desktop hackintoshes with no problems but this is my first time with a laptop and it's just not playing along. I've read through a lot of guides and I've tried various things but, other than changing clover, everything ended with this error when trying to boot.

I'm also attaching my latest clover (from when I was started by installing the rehabman version).

Rehabman's version doesn't work on latest Mojave, not sure why you uploaded it for?

Didn’t see that in the guide. Must be buried somewhere in some other page or document and I didn’t come across it. Is that because he hasn’t been around much the last few months? Which versions of Mojave does it work with and where is that stated? I do have a HS installer so I could use that if I can’t figure out how to get an older Mojave release.

So do you know which Mojave version broke his clover fork? Or should I just go with HS?

I tried the latest version, would not install onto the usb. And I tried the second to latest version and it would not boot with his config.plist or my attempt at a config.plist. I’ll reupload some problem reporting data with those files now that I know to skip his clover for Mojave.

Just to update, I did manage to use 5018 clover and the UHD630 config.plist and I've got everything I want working now. I had to edit a few things in the config.plist before I could reach the installer but things went pretty smooth after that. The only real snag was getting igpu enabled but this thread (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/an-idiots-guide-to-lilu-and-its-plug-ins.260063/) helped a ton. Thanks for the help!
