Thanks @pastrychef for your assistance and the quick turnaround with this. Unfortunately, I get the same results:
- I can boot into clover,
- I see the ++++++
- then the machine reboots.

Is there a way to do a log dump or debug of what's going on???

Boot in verbose mode and post a picture of where it stops/crashes.

Also, please add the 15 port limit patches to your config.plist.

Don't add to /LIbrary/Extensions/. Delete that one.

I don't know why the kext is not working for you.

thx pastrtchef !!!! it was my fault... didn't notice that NIC adapter was tourned off in the BIOS. now every thing is working..

@pazziards I can't figure out why you have the same machine and I cannot get your EFI to work. What version of BIOS do you have on your SFF 7040?

Yes I do. is that the issue?

I don't know what the issues is... For some reason, it looks like your system restarts right after the Aptio fix and macOS never really starts to load.
