So I made a bootable flash drive with cover bootloader for High Sierra. It boots up as it should, I format my HDD to hsf+, then right when it says "installing" and "10 minutes remaining" (time keeps changing) the laptop just shuts down. Could it be a HDD related problem? I have switched the bios to AHCI, other than that I couldn't find anything else to be changed.

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.
