Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide".
Here is a direct link, just to be clear:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing. Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html
The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ:
"Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"

Hi
Thanks for your answer!

I updated the profile and followed the guide to the letter

Still have a problem though

I managed to reach the install screen and went past the first phase of installation
HOWEVER when i reached the second phase - of booting install from the previously formatted drive, i received an error saying i run out of resources

attached a screenshot

Please help- what to do here?

Thank you

From where did you download macOS?
On what hardware did you create your USB installer?

Good news- i installed with sierra instead of high sierra and it worked
I have ethernet enabled so i have internet
How to make Wifi and Audio work? Is there a tool like multibeast for a laptop?
Thank you
