Do you have the kernel panic also?

I do believe it to be a memory map issue as RehabMan suggested. I tried filling memory details in config.plist/SMBIOS/Memory, but wasn't completely sure what I was doing and did it wrong. Then I got really busy and didn't have time to work on it any more. But I plan on taking another crack at it in a couple of weeks. I will post here if I get anything working (more likely when I run into more problems).
Well I just passed the kernel panic crash.
In clover configurator, open your config.plist and in the Acpi menu you have to check 2 boxes :
- FixSATA
- FixHeaders

Now I am at the macOS installation menu !!

FixSATA not needed (use SATA-unsupported.kext).
FixHeaders is already used in the guide plists.

FixHeader fix the issue and I can confirm it's not checked in the guide config plist... (I use the config_HD4000_1366x768.plist)

xcode or plist edit pro is recommended for config.plist's

clover configurator is known to ruin config.plist's

I assume by "clover editor" you mean "Clover Configurator".
Clover Configurator not recommended.

Use a plist editor such as Xcode or PlistEdit Pro.
Keep in mind that config.plist/ACPI/DSDT/Fixes/FixHeaders was the old location, now deprecated in favor of the new setting at config.plist/ACPI/FixHeaders.

The guide is very specific on the revision of Clover required to use the plists.

That is good to know. I was also using Clover Configurator and that was likely part of my issue.
