The title says it all. Made a USB installer using Unibeast. Attached is my efi folder and a picture of where it is stuck.

Hi there.

Forgive me. What EFI have you uploaded? If you are unable to install using UniBeast then you don't yet have an EFI folder on the destination yet.

The one you have uploaded has a big error in it: FakeSMC.kext and VirtualSMC.kext. One or the other, not both. Preferably the latter.

Also see you are using a 64GB USB Flash-drive for UniBeast. You should use one no bigger than 32GB unless you create a smaller partition on it, and I can't see that.

Looks like Windows is on a 1TB disk and already in the system. No specifics, but that may be a problem confusing the EFI. Perhaps temporarily disable it in BIOS?

:)

Yes, actually I had a hackintosh earlier and I got the kexts from its EFI folder and used it after I was done installing with the UniBeast USB (had to delete that installation cuz it got corrupted). I will try installing without FakeSMC.kext. If that doesn't work, I will try creating smaller partition for the UniBeast USB. And yes, Windows is already on my system and I am trying to install the hackintosh on an internal SSD connected via a USB to SATA connector.
Thanks for the help! I will keep providing updates.

Removing FakeSMC.kext doesn’t seem to help.

Made a new UniBeast USB, this time with a 30GB partition and default EFI. No changes made to it at all. Now it’s getting stuck at apfs_module_start:1689. Any ideas?

Thanks! I tried putting SSDT-EC.aml in the patches folder but that alone didn't work. After that I tried playing around with the config.plist and made some changes. Changed FixOwnership to true, made the IntelGFX ID 0x0 and changed InjectIntel to false. Successfully installed after that. For anyone looking for a solution, my EFI folder is attached. Thanks to everyone for helping me!
