Hi all.

My hackintosh killed itself with an automatic update a few months back, and I'm only now getting around to trying to fix it.

I've taken the opportunity to re-jig the hard drive setup a little bit, so I picked up a Western Digital Blue NVMe drive.

I get through the initial install, but after the restart, the progress bar gets to '12 minutes remaining,' then restarts.

I used verbose mode to try to get a handle on what's happening, but I'm just confused.

The system:

MB: Z390 GAMING SLI
Chip: i7 8700K
Video card: RX 580 Pulse 8GB
RAM: 64 GB
Currently attached drive (Windows drive disconnected for installation purposes): WD Blue SN550 NVMe M.2 2280

Verbose mode scrolled *really* fast, but I got what pics I could. I'll attach them here. The first ones happen before the loading screen, then there's another one that comes afterwards.

EDIT: the second and third images are swapped. Sorry about that.
