the message is still waiting for root device

make sure to use a USB2.0 usb installer and try all your ports on your laptop

you removed too much, it seems that the installer is unable to find the root partition

So what I'm gonna do is that, I'm gonna format everything, and install it again. A fresh new start

@KyleGaruda what to reinstall? You had macOS installed? Please confirm what macOS are you trying to install, the error regarding "waiting for root device" usually appear when the installer and/or macOS does not find the root partition, because a missing driver, you removed too many from your clover, please restore your EFI from my port #1 and put the patched DSDT in the right place, and then start the installer. Even there are a lot of unused drivers during install process they do not harm in general, only if they get stuck and then you can remove them one by one, however, all drivers from the EFI from #1 should work fine on your computer as long as it is Asus ROG Strix G531GT

micron nvme ssd is most likely not supporting by macosx also dsdt is a mostly unique for a device you need to patch dsdt with a custom ssdt for working all laptops. Can you tell me witch patches are you yousing patch for dsdt I bought that pc recently but I have too much experience in hackintosh I can fix most of the issue of that device but for that I need to boot it first.
Micron nvme is a dead end so far so it needs to be change but even if I disable that device with a ssdt my system is freezing after keyboard kext so can you share dsdt patches instead of dsdt files please.

Great, let us know, this time you have your original DSDT patched, let see, sometimes my macOS restarts few times, mostly when i boot linux first, i was unable to see which is the cause, but after 3 or 4 restarts/kernel-panics run well, however, i started lately macOS only in virtual machine under linux

From the attached picture it seems that you do not use an original mojave image, there could be some issues from the image itself...
