GTX 1050 Ti + UHD 630(1920x1080)
I created a bootable USB for MacOS High Sierra, and trying to build an hackintosh.
I am doing this on
Asus ROG GL503GE
Core i7-8750H 2.2 GHZ
8GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti
Intel UDH 630
Kingston 128GB NVME PCIe SSD+1TB Firecuda SSHD
Whenever i plug in the usb, and choose it as the bootable drive, clover never shows and instead i get some apfs efi logs.
Image is attached below.
Any hints on how can i get through it.
I tried the bootable usb on every port(usb 3.0 and usb 2.0 as well), i even removed SSD(as i was thinking that, clover might not be able to display the NVME ssd) but nothing worked

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide".
Here is a direct link, just to be clear:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing. Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html
The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ:
"Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"

Updated my profile, as per the guidelines.

I followed your guide, and kind of made it through the installer, and did some modification as need, now i don't have QE/CI, i tried the lilu.kext, Whatevergreen.kext and even
FakePCIID.kext & FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext

and even tried the ig-platform-id injection, this build also have the nvidia gtx 1050Ti, i installed the nvidia webdriver for it, and enabled it in the clover, but nothing seems to be working, and after these changes
panic(cpu 0 caller) kernel trap occurs and clover shows up all the kext loaded, and reboots.
and if i revert back, all the changes everything works, but only Intel UHD 630 7 MB vram only.

Attached EFI folder

I managed, to enable the intel UHD 630 with one of your config.plist, but now the backlight of the laptop LCD is not working properly, it keeps turning on and off, on period is like 1 second,but it keeps off for more then 10 seconds.
I even tried your intel backlight kext, but it didn't worked either.

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.164990/
Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

I used teamviewer to access my hackintosh, and managed to generate the problem reporting files, using the script (gen_debug.sh) and even generated preboot log, and ssdt (EFI/CLOVER/ACPI), all problem reporting files and EFI are attached as a zip.

No ioreg file there.

Your kextcache output proves kexts are not installed correctly.
All kexts you need must be installed to the system volume.
Read post #2 of the Clover guide for details:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, kextcache shows AppleBacklightExpert has been corrupted. Use the macOS installer to restore it .

I have generated the new problem reporting, after repairing the kext permission using kext wizard, now the error related to AppleBacklightExpert is resolved and does not shows up in the kextcache , but still don't have the backlight, and now it does have the ioreg dump.

You did not follow the guide (your kextcache proves AppleBacklightInjector.kext is not installed).
Read here:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-laptop-backlight-control-using-applebacklightinjector-kext.218222/

And still your kexts are not installed as per previous advice (FakeSMC.kext not installed).
Read post #2 of the guide regarding proper kext setup:
