So I am getting stuck on the Apple logo Install or the infinite wheel of death

I am follwing Shark 7760's guide as far as bios settings...

I could not find where he had uploaded his unique EFI folder but I am definitely getting this same exact problem as in this thread... about 75% of the way through the install loading bar an apple time wheel starts spinning and overlapping itself until it becomes a blurry white wheel and progress stops there.

1.) I have tried waiting it out.

2.) Safe mode: Just reboots to clover install screen.

3.) Verbose mode and it gives this messages (pictures attached)

4.) Installing without the kext: That got me further than anything... the bar loaded about 90% of the way and just kept spinning but did not blur out as mentioned before.

I have the identical BIOS settings as Shark 7760 thread linked above.

Kind of stuck as to where to go from here.

I have a feeling it is the kext or the EFI partition folder.

Any help would be much appreciated.
