I've tried every single port and used a USB 2.0 drive. I'm still getting the same error. Does anyone have any idea as to what is happening?

Most of the solutions require USB 2.0 ports, and I don't have any on my laptop. Not really sure where to go from here.

It's odd that you can absorb that information yet totally disregard the part about trying with a USB 2 hub.

Looks like, in order to fix this, I'd have to buy one. It's worth a shot, I guess.

"Still waiting for root device".

When booting from USB means that there is a problem finding a valid System folder to start up from on your USB flash drive.
This is usually because the flash drive is in a USB3 port.
If this is the case move it to a USB2 port, if it is already in a USB2 port move it to another and try again.
Repeat until you have tried all USB ports.
Use a USB2 flash drive.
If it still doesn't work you could try another flash drive.
It can be caused by using a flash drive that is greater than 32GB, if this is the case you must create a partition of 32GB or less.
Try connecting your USB flash drive using a USB2 hub.
You might also try enabling Legacy on your USB3 ports in your BIOS settings.
Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled in your BIOS settings.
Ensure that Fast Boot is not enabled in your BIOS settings.
At Clover Boot Screen select Options > PCI devices > USB Ownership and USB Injection.
May require USBInjectAll.kext in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/.
May require XHCI-unsupported.kext in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/. (Click Download repository).
May require a USB Port Limit patch.

I'm stuck no matter what I try. I have a laptop almost identical to most posts in this thread, mine is a MSI P65 9SE (the "creator" version of the GS65, but same hardware).

Here are my hardware details:
Motherboard: MSI MS-16Q4
CPU: Core i7 9750H / HM370
Graphics: UHD 630 + RTX 2060, 3840x2160

The only difference I can see is that it's a 9th gen core (but AFAIK it's the exact same architecture/features as the 8th gen (Coffee Lake)), and it's a 4k display.

I based my attempts on @itech config from message #10.
To make sure I was testing in the same conditions, I downloaded Mojave 10.14.4 instead of the latest (but also tested with Mojave 10.14.6, same problem).

Here's the procedure I followed:
  1. Mounted a USB stick on my mac mini
  2. diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk1 2 MBR FAT32 "CLOVER EFI" 200Mi HFS+J "install_osx" R
  3. Mounted Mojave 10.14.4 DMG
  4. sudo "/Volumes/macOS 10.14.4 Mojave/Install macOS Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/install_osx --nointeraction
  5. Installed Clover_v2.4k_r4920 (provided in @itech archive) on the CLOVER EFI partition, checking Clover for UEFI booting only
  6. Replaced the installed CLOVER folder by the one provided by @itech (message #10) - full replace, not merge
  7. Unmounted the USB stick, plugged in my MSI laptop
  8. Booted the MSI laptop, F11, CLOVER EFI
  9. Added the -v verbose option, launched install Mojave
From here I'm stuck at IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 no matter what I try:


(NB: there's also a WARNING: IOPlatformPluginUtil : getCPUIDInfo: this is an unknown CPU model 0x9e : not sure if that's related or not)

Here's for reference my BIOS config:




Additionally, here are the hidden Advanced Graphics BIOS options that you can reveal by pressing l-alt + r-ctrl + r-shift + f2 in the Advanced tab. I did not change anything:


I tried changing plist's #ig-platform-id to 0x12345678 (even though I checked 0x3e9b0000 was matching my UHD 630 id), different Mojave versions, same result.
Attaching @itech config I'm using for reference, but it's the exact same file as message #10.

Any help would be greatly appreciated ! :)
