Hi all,

I'll explain what I tried to do at first, so that you might have a better understanding of what I am trying to achieve.
I wanted to install Mac OS X 10.14.3 Mojave on an external USB 2.0 HDD to use on my desktop AND my laptop, in which I succeeded. It works flawlessly on my desktop.
My laptop is another story however.
At first i got stuck at 'apfs_module_start (1340)', luckily I was able to fix that by installing the proper kexts (to my knowledge).

After that another problem arose.
Every time I try to boot the external HDD from my laptop, it'll get through the early boot and continue with the system boot.
It'll pass along, until it at one point shows tons of ACPI errors. Then it goes through tons of lines of text and reboot.
I wish I could be more precise, but the screen pops up very fast.
I tried different boot args, and nothing seemed to make a difference.

Here are the specs of my laptop:
Lenovo IdeaPad 330-15ICH
MoBo: LNVNB161216 (U3E1)
CPU: Intel Core i5 8300H
RAM: 8GB DDR4 SODIMM
iGPU: Intel UHD Graphics 630
eGPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 4GB
Storage: RPFTJ128PDD2EWX NVMe SSD (120GB)
ST1000LM035-1RK172 (1TB)
Network: Intel Wireless-AC 9560

I have also attached my EFI folder, in case that might help any.
This is my first attempt at even making a Hackintosh, so forgive me if I made any mistakes.

Thanks in advance!

Hello ! I've got the same laptop as yours and I wonder if you finally succeeded to make macOS working on it.
Thanks :)
