Yes, I updated to 10.15.4.

I had an issue where HDMI audio was causing kernel panics on wake from sleep with my Radeon VII even though I don't use HDMI audio. My fix was to remove WhateverGreen.

Which version of Clover are you on?

Updated successfully. Had a black screen issue but used agdpmod=pikera boot flag which fixed.

How do I shut off the log text that appears during clover and next to the Apple logo during boot?

I don't know how to get rid of that text. It's part of the FileVault fix.

I tried few more things, downgrade BIOS version to 1803, remove the Windows drive, move the macOS to the other slot, nothing...macOS isn't detected at all as UEFI. I also noticed this (attachments).

My macOS drive doesn't show up here.

Well, if the motherboard doesn't even see the macOS drive, there's no possible way it will be a boot option.

Check that the SATA port used by that drive is not shared with an M.2 slots.
Check the health of that drive.
Check the cables.

The drive works fine. As I said it was booting perfectly with Mojave. :(

The MB don't see it there. If I go to the BOOT option inside BIOS setup, its there, but not as UEFI. It doesn't use cables as its the M.2 drive connected to the slot next to the CPU.

If the drive does not show up as boot option for UEFI, your /EFI/BOOT/ folder might be screwed. Try copying my EFI folder from post #1 to the EFI Partition again. Replace the EFI folder that's already there.

Testing, thank you.

Should i use EFI Clover r5107 Z390G (Catalina).zip or EFI Clover r5104 Z370G (Catalina).zip? Because mine is Z370-F Gaming, but i think Clover 5107 is the min required version for Calatina?

I tested with the r5107 Z390G, and now I can boot from drive. :) I guess it was my EFI was broken for some reason.

Now I have that issue that I have a black screen at login, and I have to unplug and plug again the HDMI cable. (It happens the same with DP.) Is there are easy solution for this? Updating to latest clover and kexts (Lulu, WEG) could fix it?

Thanks again @pastrychef for your help.
