This is my first attempt at getting a desktop build running, so I am still learning - though, a few years ago, I did get Yosemite running on an old Dell Inspiron laptop.
  • ASUS PRIME Z390-P (version 0805)
  • Intel Core i9-9900K
  • ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 TI 11GB (DGPU)
  • Intel UHD Graphics 630 (IGPU)
  • XPG Z1 DDR4 3000MHz (2x*8GB)
  • 1TB WD Blue Series SATA-III SSD

I tried to install High Sierra originally and had the same issue. I also have tried changing USB drives and ensured that I was using a USB 2.0 port. When browsing to see if anyone else had this issue (or a fix), I found that most people had this problem after already installing Mojave. I have not been able to install Mojave at all, or get to the installation screen.
I grabbed Mojave from the App Store off my MacBook Pro, and used UniBeast to create my USB drive. I tried to follow a couple guides with the same motherboard for BIOS settings, still having the same issues.
I recorded a video of booting in verbose and took screenshots. Apologies if the text is blurry in some places.

Thanks to anyone in advance who might be able help!


Update: It was my Intel Optane Memory that was causing the issue.
