Shutdown manually and start your OS working. Add slide=0 to your USB stick , add fakesmc, Lilu, whatevergreen, AppleALC updated, then go again ti see if installation don't stuck.
If you have VirtualSMC block it.

hello, and unlimited thanks for the excellent work of tonymacx86.com

I have this problem to make the bootable USB:

I followed the guide and tried the procedure with my hackintosh (latest version of Mojave). My USB after the terminal command finish without EFI partition

I've tried some other USB pen (USB 2.0). When finally I have the EFI partition, I've tried to install the latest Clover version (stable 5070) on the USB. But Clover install the EFI folder and boot file out EFI partition!! I found those files near Catalina.app..

I've tried to copy the EFI folder to EFI partition. I've replaced config.plist in EFI/Clover with the config.plist below this guide and put the FakeSMC.kext in EFI/Clover/Kext/Other. But at the boot the Clover don't see the Catalina installer.

I've tried also with the same version of Clover of latest UniBeast version (4920) and with 2 USB pen (one for Clover and other for Catalina.app). I can start and finish the installation. But at the first boot of Catalina, the configuration page remain freeze with grey background and mouse cursor.

The first time after Catalina official release I've tried to upgrade directly from Mojave (I could not resist), and incredible thing I've finished the installation without audio working and with very very slow boot, about 3/5 minutes. For this I want to try a new clean installation. But I haven't lucky, and I search help here.

Sorry for my English and regards!

Thanks for all

USB have EFI partition? Clover installation is in the same place of Catalina.app?

Really. Clover do not see the Catalina installer. See all disk, but not Catalina installer. Install UEFI only and esp selected....
