I pressed the space bar at the Clover boot screen and selected verbose mode.Boot in verbose mode and post a picture of the screen when it stops.
It probably says "Still waiting for root device" in the bottom left corner.
That last message is about apfs, but you have made a HFS+ install...
My advice is to connect the Samsung SSD to your Mac, install the operating system, do NOT install Clover or Multibeast, see if your Mac boots from the SSD.
Then connect the SSD to the PC and try to boot from it with the usb stick. If it works, you can install Clover on the SSD and just copy the Clover folder from USB/EFI/ to SSD/EFI. If not, tweak your USB until it successfully boots your installation.
Your USB must have FakeSMC.kext in CLOVER/kexts/Other, apfs.efi & OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi in CLOVER/drivers64UEFI
You can use this version of Clover https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/clover-uefi-boot-mode-v2-4k-r4428.376/
Yes, your Samsung SSD should be exactly like your internal Mac SSD: GUID Partition Scheme and APFS Container Scheme.Should I format the builds SSD as APFS as well?
<key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-v dart=0</string>
Any suggestions are welcome.
Hi, I see that you are still having fun with getting your first hack done. Well, since your mobo is having trouble detecting your sata drives (Your Sata drives still don't show up on disk utility right?), I'd try installing NVMe SSD instead of sata. Also, I came across couple of successful build with same mobo that they all seemed have used NVMe SSD.
I can't make out what those verbose screens are saying. All the texts look pixelated.
Where do you stand right now? Are you able to boot in to the SSD where you have installed macOS? I saw one of the screenshots where you have "Macintosh SSD" in an APFS partition. Is macOS on there? Are you able to boot in to it? Did you try putting a working EFI folder on to that drive?
