Which of these drivers are mandatory for the USB installer, because I tried with all of these I got a blank screen...when I only used APFSDriverloader, HFSplus and virtual SMC I got to the clover boot loader menu at least....

None of those drivers should cause a black screen.

The only ones that are not essential are AppleGenericInput, AppleUISupport and VirtualSmc.

New USB installer did the trick. Post install ?... add 18.3 SMBIOS to EFI Clover r5120 Z370G (Catalina) v2 plist with serial - adjust other folder with the right and latest kexts - remove devices entries in the plist (there are still some in this one ?) - remove Z390 sub folders in OEM ? - Remove patched SSDT-EC-USBX in ACPI ? then...

Up and running, so far only wi-fi does not work....thankfully yours ;)

All the kexts should already be latest release versions.
You shouldn't need to remove SSDT-USBX.
You can delete the Z390 sub folder.
The only device property in config.plist is for audio. There's a very high likelihood that it's the same path as your Z270.

This really shows how similar Z270 and Z370 are. Z370 shares more in common with Z270 than with B360 or Z390.

= nice to learn

-I did manage to to get my Atheros wifi card to work ;)
But would likely share my work tomorrow cause I'm still unsure about certain things (it's 2h30 am here and I need to work early)

Good ol’ Microcenter...
I wonder how that place stays in business in the age of Amazon, Newegg etc. Out here in the west, Fry’s was the king ... until online retail. Now they are a-hurtin’...

Yeah. MicroCenter sometimes has some amazing deals. I ran out there this morning to score one of these 9900Ks. It doesn't come in the AD&D dice style case but all I'm interested in is the CPU. :lolno:

Yeah, I've only been to Fry's once. Made it a point to go check them out when I was in San Diego. It was awesome!!
