Immersive Thanks for your file. i have replaced with your files.
finally i am not sure it is the config file or not. just after the phrase architecture not recognise few more lines would load up and restart.

do you think it is because the installer is 10.14.2

so i have attached even my bios setup screens.

if anyone could help i would be very grateful.

thanks.
Boot Mode should be set to UEFI
Your BIOS version seems to differ from mine, mine is 4KCN28WW.

Everything was going good until I ran this line of command. Installing Sierra 10.12.6 on my Legion y720

cd ~/Projects/legion.git
./Y720.sh --download-requirements
./Y720.sh --install-downloads

It was loading and then the screen went black and now I get this block icon when I try to boot into mac. [see attached photo]

@RehabMan Here is a video of what happens [Skip to the end if you want] . I loaded all the kexts that we used on the usb installer onto the SSD EFI mount. What am I doing wrong? I've tried running that script twice now and its bricked the install every time. Was I supposed to put all your kexts on the SSD EFI clover? I just don't get why I cant get further into this install.

This guide is for MacOS Mojave 10.14.x
Kexts and patches used in this guide may not work for an older version.

I just thought that everything applied because in the start of the thread he says it works for mojave, sierra, high sierra, etc.. without stating otherwise.

I didn't install mojave initially because I thought there was a compatibility issue with my install drive but I think I resolved it. will let you know how everything goes.

So I tried a Mojave install and the same exact thing happened. I'm completely stumped now.

I am going to guess that you installed Clover to the boot drive.
Attach problem report files by running script before kernel panic

I did install it to the boot drive.
I'm not sure how to "run script before kernel panic"
and so I wont give you guys on this thread a headache, I sent the computer to a hackintosh expert on ebay who was willing to do it for me.

But by any means, if you have any input or direction, I'd be happy to hear it for my own education. I wish I could've got it going but I have jobs to do and can't sit and hack all day especially at my slow pace.

Thank you so much for your response, I really appreciate it!!

What I meant by that is to run the problem reporting (debug) script and attach the .zip file so I can see what your efi folder looks like and your kexts.
