Also when do i generate a smbios? before or after installing it to the partition?

I am a complete noob when it comes to this, I may have 2 certifications for IT but I don't know much about this lol
you set your smbios in your config.plist while you are preparing your files on your usb installer

Hey what smbios did you choose? I have The exact same specs as your lenovo hackintosh
Latest (clean) EFI. All seems to be working very well. Fill in your own Serial, UUID, MLB numbers.

Ok so new problem, i don't remember the exact problem, but when it gets to installing the os, the bar doesn't move forward at all, and in the log it does output a ton of things that i think say something about not being able to connect to apple, and im gonna do it again and make sure that that HoRNDIS thing was properly set up and my tablet was set to tethering

The way I think would be easiest for me, is to use the USB as a bootloader, and once I'm into MacOS just unplug it

yes, tethering is slow :)

you mount the efi partition of your usb stick, hackintool or efi mounter software can do this

copy efi folder from efi partition to your desktop

remove usb stick

use same software above to mount your efi of your hard drive

if there is an efi folder in there, remove it and copy over efi folder from desktop
