you can see in your image:
VoodooPS2Syn...... version 1.8.25
Please educate me: When you start in verbose mode, is that telling you what is on the Laptop? Or on the USB stick?
I have been unable to access the laptop. Any changes I have made were to the USB stick (it has the Aug 3, 2020 version, as does the EFI "drive" that mounts)
If I need to access the laptop, I need the means to get there, as I only get the Apple logo with the 95% stuck progress bar. What is the back door entry means?

the verbose is telling you what you are booting from, whether it is the usb stick or the hard drive

your back door entry issue:
you probably have a usb issue, having USBInjectAll.kext would help, make sure to use a usb2.0 stick and try each port on your laptop

To the USB drive: I tried adding USBInjectAll.kext (Version 0.71, Circa NOV 2018), first Clover Configurator put it into the EFI/Clover/kexts/10.5 folder - that did not work, then I put it into "Other" and rebooted and it still did not work. I tried all USB ports. The USB drive is a brand new Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive.
The Stuck Apple Log still appears. I did verbose mode, and it shows the OLD VoodooPS2Mouse (V 1.8.25) kext - so that means it must reflect the one on the Laptop. If I need to update the laptop files, how can I get out of this Loop whereby I cannot enter the thing I need to fix? Is there another way in?
Alternatively, Can I somehow externally wipe the Hard drive on the laptop?
I know how this works on a Mac, but not on this emulated Hackintosh.

use the config.plist from post 1 (unibeast config.plist is not for laptops)

then change:
Code:
<key>InjectKexts</key>
        <string>Detect</string>

to:
Code:
<key>InjectKexts</key>
        <string>Yes</string>

I used Clover Configurator to import and edit config_HD4600_4400_4200.plist.
I transferred to the USB. Same end result - stuck.
Verbose mode and Clover folder attached.

your image still shows old voodoo, you sure you are uploading the correct clover folder that you are trying to boot from?

I mentioned that before: The Verbose mode seems to reflect what's on the Lenovo, not on the USB stick. On the compressed Clover folder it should show (and I see) the New Voodoo (August 2020) and the new config.plist - both enclosed.

i can only go by the files you provide and the screen shots, your screenshot say old voodoo driver whereas the clover folder you uploaded has the newer version

try adding to boot arguments:

Code:
-f UseKernelCache=No
to see of that helps
