I've just read the guide again, and downloaded the latest FakeSMC, but the problem is the same.
Boot verbose, show photo. Post EFI/Clover folder.

Keep in mind booting the installer from USB is not quick.

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

Mobo: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
Mobo: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

Note: When specifying your bootloader, if using Clover legacy, please be sure to specify "Clover legacy"). Specifying "Clover" will be assumed as "Clover UEFI"

The problem is the same, but the screen freezes with a grey background (I waited four hours). Thanks
Could be FakeSMC problem. You're not using the FakeSMC that is linked by my guide.

You can always boot without graphics injection to take graphics issues out of the equation.

Thanks to this guide I am very happy with this laptop at the moment I have this working:
Graphics, ACPI (native), USB3 (native), touchpad, ethernet, wifi/bluetooth (replaced internal card), battery status, brightness, audio, webcam, imessage/icloud.
which card did you use as replacement for wifi/bt?

I was having problem with my hackintosh post install, then I used your clover folder (changed serial key and FakeSMC) and its working fine now.

Except Audio and Elan touchpad.
