Sorry to bump a (relatively) old thread, but I'm also encountering the ++++++++++++ issue following this guide.
It gets stuck on "legacy shim 2" for a moment, and then turns into the madness that you see attached to this post. I've looked at a ton of different guides, and this seems to be one of the few Extreme4 X99 builds that has a guide to it, so I was wondering if there was any chance you could help me troubleshoot. I can run with -v in the bootflags if that would be helpful.
Essentially the +++ error, from my experience, means that Clover is not able to boot due to hardware incompatibilities either due to insufficient RAM or unable to identify the CPU freq or clock properly.
But if your boot passes the +++ signs and outputs other errors then it's probably a specific kext from the bootloader that isn't working properly and panics the kernel. I suggest going into the BIOS and disable everything you don't need (USB 3.0, Ethernet, Audio) and see if it boots the installer.
If it installs then you'll be able to install the proper kexts and then enable them once again in the BIOS.
