I have tried OsxAptioFix3Drv-64 or OsxAptioFixDrv-64 already, all not working sadly
I think it says "Still waiting for root device". That indicates it might be a USB problem. Try different USB ports.

Thank you for your great guide for the hackintosh! Highly appreciated & recommended!
Please did you succesfully updated bios to 1802 or 1602 version?
Yes. As far as I know, I've updated to every BIOS version within a few days of release by Asus.

For 9th gen CPU users, I consider 1802 almost mandatory.

So I tried the USB2 port, any Now i can boot into the Installer,

I got next problem, The installer doesnt give the option to "Install" but rather "Reinstall"

so I click the reinstall, then the installer popup, saying,

"Recovery server could not be contacted - No ethernet connection"

So I plugin the lan cable, now the installer started, however, the installer says
"about 1 hour and 41 minutes remaining" and it just stay there.

Do I wait longer? Its been 20mins so far

There was a bug in a version of UniBeast that caused this problem, be sure to use the latest.

Another possible cause is that you only have the partial rather than full installer.
What size is the installer app. ?

I can see the installer downloading the new installation file though, but its super slow, although my internet connection is 1Gbps

Looks like you'll just have to wait it out then.

Should I use apple own command to creat the installer USB drive?

then use the clover to make it bootable
