This is Mojave 10.14 with MultiBeast 11.0

My configuration choices are attached as Mojave-A.mb

Destination file system is APFS
MultiBeast Log is unextraordinary:
03/11/19 13:29:33 - Installing 'Bootloaders > Clover Legacy Boot Mode'
03/11/19 13:29:40 - Installing 'BootVolume'
03/11/19 13:29:40 - Copying 'apfs.efi'
03/11/19 13:29:40 - Mounting EFI at destination 'Mojave'
03/11/19 13:29:41 - Installing 'Drivers > Audio > AppleALC'
03/11/19 13:30:38 - Installing 'Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC'
03/11/19 13:31:24 - Installing 'Drivers > Network > Realtek > RealtekRTL8111 v2.2.2'
03/11/19 13:32:10 - Installing 'Customize > Graphics > Core Graphics Fixup AKA WhateverGreen'
03/11/19 13:32:56 - Installing 'Customize > System Definitions > iMac > iMac 14,2'
03/11/19 13:32:56 - Installing 'Customize > SSDT Options > Sandy Bridge Core i5'
03/11/19 13:32:56 - Releasing XPC connection.
03/11/19 13:32:56 - Finished Installing.

Install log is attached.

Problem appears to be that the boatloader is not written (or written correctly). My system will not boot from the SSD after MultiBeast has done its thing. I have installed Clover v2.4k_r4862-Legacy and the system boots correctly. It messes up what I had MB do: set the Audio.
If I reboot from my USB Stick before installing Clover, the audio works correctly.

My system configuration in signature is correct.
Let me know if I can provide any other information.

So your SSD boot problem is solved?

You might want to rerun MultiBeast without reinstalling Clover legacy. You can also try copying the config.plist from the USB or editing the one on the hard drive to match the USB.

Yes, boot from SSD is solved.

I never thought about breaking the MultiBeast process into pieces. Always done all of it together. I'll give it a shot.
I'll also take a look at the config.plist files.

Thanks!

Well, I'm down to comparing the config.plist files from the SSD and the USB.
When I re-ran MultiBeast without the boot loader components, I ended up back at the same place: the Audio doesn't work and I have to use the USB to boot the system.
