I recently used Clover to successfully copy all the install materials needed to my 16GB USB flash drive. My Hackintosh build hardware recognized the installation material and installation is occurring now.

At least I think it's occurring now. I have yet to have seen a single pixel (on my 4K) of loading of the installation bar. I know it's a long process, but when should I just reboot and go at it again? It's been at least an hour or two with no movement so far...

Anyone who has any experience installing High Sierra from Clover’s input on how long it took them would be greatly appreciated!

**EDIT**
I plan to let it run overnight and see what happens. Will update with results in the late morning

Thanks!

SOLVED:

It was my own fault of course. I hadn't configured my .plist files correctly to match my processor and Mobo. Misinterpreted instructions.
