@PhattyMcGee you could also try inserting the USB installer into one of the USB 2.0 ports just below the ethernet jack as that sometimes works better than the front USB 2.0.

Please put your hardware into your profile details. Should appear just below your Apple logo avatar.

We still need the hardware you are using, placed in your profile. Graphics, CPU and whether it's 8300 or 6300 by HP
see post #21. Thanks in advance.

Just a shot in the dark, I recreated my Unibeast USB boot drive with a completely different flash drive... re-downloaded High Sierra, re-downloaded Unibeast and I'm getting the exact same results. I even tried the USB 2.0 ports on the back of the computer.

One thing I did notice is before I ejected the USB drive out of my Mac, the /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.13 are empty....they all are, except for the "Other" folder.

Yes, the 10.13 should be empty. The other folder should have Fakesmc in it.
Just as an experiment try enabling Legacy Support in BIOS and see if that makes a difference.

No luck, just made Clover and then the Apple image/loading bar stretched...same results.

I did try again resetting the BIOS back to default and redoing the suggested BIOS settings. No luck with that.

I've seen other people upload their EFI partition (zipped) for issues...would that show any signs of whats going on? I will upload mine now, regardless.

You've got Fakesmc.kext in every folder from 10.6 to 10.13. Try deleting all of those. Each of those folders should be empty. Leave what is in the Other folder alone. Then try and boot again.
