If you have Nvidia Web drivers installed, remove those first.
Thx for the heads up. I’ve not installed any webdrivers for this new setup as i couldn’t find any drivers for mojave. :)

So some update after such a long time...
SO I gotten my hands on a OEM Rx 560 4B but a PSU upgrade was required as the RX560 requires external power.
So long story short, I gotten a new ATX PSU and the cable adapter from MODDIY.com and now I am able to boot into mojave but only if I boot via the installation USB.
I am not able to boot in without the installation USB. I am not sure what went wrong.
attached is the verbose output during startup.

Image1: verbose output when I first started up with the new PSU.

Image2: Verbose output when re-booting(without USB) after successful bootup using installation USB.

I can't really tell what's wrong...
PLease advise. :)

Look for the differences in the two EFI folders. That will help you fix the booting problem.
Can’t he just copy usb stick efi and paste on hard drive?

Better to actually learn about what the problem is. Copy/Paste is what most people already know.

ok... so... lemme guess, I mount both the efi partitions using the terminal and make sure the files are the same in the following folders?
EFI/Clover/kexts/Other
EFI/Clover/Drivers/UEFI
EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched
