Hi @pastrychef - I just completed my build based on your post - the system is working fine and currently restoring all my data from Time Machine as we speak. Thanks again for a great write-up and the EFI folder. Would you be able to suggest the "best" SMBIOS system definition for my setup please?
SMALL TIP: Not strictly related to "the Pastrychef build", but perhaps anyone using an RX580 GPU: after following the steps listed here my system would "appear to crash" 2/3 of the way through booting during install from the Unibeast-created USB drive. I'd initially get the Apple logo, the progress bar and all would be fine and then all of a sudden.... black screen.
When I say "appeared to crash" - the system didn't freeze or reboot itself and caps-lock still worked so by those basic tests it was still running, albeit my screen was empty.
SOLUTION: After much trial and error and getting the same response every time, I finally changed form using the DVI output of the RX580 and hooked up to the HDMI-port instead. Et Voila! There's my signal again, the machine hadn't crashed at all. For some reason the DVI-out of the RX580 seems to get forgotten 2/3 of the way through booting - HDMI is fine though. Unfortunately I don't have any DisplayPort monitors or adapters to verify if those are ok.
Anyway hopefully that may help anyone else if they come across a similar thing.
Since you will be using a dGPU and IGPU will be "headless", I'd say iMac18,3 is the best system definition to use.
