Everyone that has bricked their Mac laptop by either installing Clover or even just booting from a Clover USB would certainly agree with this.

clover is being replaced by opencore nowadays, try that instead
opencore is what i have choosen when extracting the RecoveryHDMetaDmg.pkg and installing it to the stick.
Restored my Windows partition, gebun from scratch, when the stick is trying to boot i observed this newer guide is not for mbr, its for uefi
