Yes, I was afraid of that. I've been trying to figure out how to do this in linux.. extracting is easy, but I had done patching with MacIasl, so I'm struggling with how to patch/compile in linux... any pointers?
2 options:
1. Within Clover, select BIOS.aml instead of DSDT.aml
2. Use the Installation USB Clover to boot your install

This will allow you to boot into macOS so you can patch with MacIASL

Thanks @matryska . Unfortunately, the BIOS.aml needs to be patched before it will boot... and the USB Clover will also not boot. I think maybe I had a corrupt kext cache as well (via hackintool kext tool failure).. (but trying to boot without the caches also fails.). Hopefully I'll have time I a couple weeks to try and rescue without a re-install.

Hi! Do I need to patch own ACPI files DSDT/SSDT already for creating a working usb installer?

no, you do that after you have installed macOS

Ah ok, good to know. I was just wondering if that could be the reason that I am not able to boot into the macOS installer.

Hi Everyone, I tried to follow all the guidelines and comments to install 10.14 on my Thinkpad X1 Extreme with success. Only Problem is the boot time of 25min. So I tried to create my own DSDT file till the point where I can't compile it. I just get to many errors and can't figure out how to solve them all to get a working DSDT file. Any tips are greatly appreciated
