First in advance: Mods, can you please add Z390 Boards to 'Build Signature' selections, thanks!

I tried to install High Sierra on my new build with Gigabyte Z390 Gaming SLI and i9-9900K.
BIOS-Settings are set according to the predecessor Z370XP SLI with i7-8700K given here:

The installation stucks during booting from Clover into installer and it seems to be a regular termination, not a panic.
Could it be High Sierra cannot be installed on ZX390 or with i9-9900K or both?

Hope the screenshots tells something useful to anyone who sees deeper into things.
One picture shows the end while booting normal, the other in verbose- and safe-mode.
Thanks!

@testermax2, please update your profile (account details) with your Motherboard, CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card(s).
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard.

I did update to my profile. Still need help with the build. It goes well to the point when macOS 10.13.5 start installation and then stopped almost at the end, go to reboot and that' s all what I got.

Hi,

unfortunately even after I added configuration to profile, I do not have any answer.
What I see on the screen is exact what show in previous note: Attempting system restart ....

What id done:

BIOS reset to Default, then setup like in post:

  • Save & Exit
    • Load Optimized Defaults then make (or confirm) the following settings -- important settings in bold:
  • M.I.T.
    • Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.) → Profile 1
  • BIOS
    • Windows 8/10 Features → Other OS
    • CSM Support → Disabled
      • Secure Boot will be disabled by default, but good to check
  • Peripherals
    • Initial Display Output → PCIe Slot 1. If your discrete graphics card is in Slot 2, change this appropriately.
    • Intel Platform Trust Technology (PTT) → Disabled
    • Thunderbolt(TM) Configuration
      • TBT Vt-d Base Security → Disabled
      • Thunderbolt Boot Support → Disabled
      • Security Level → No Security
      • Discrete Thunderbolt Configuration
        • Thunderbolt USB Support → Enabled
        • GPIO3 Force Pwr → Enabled
        • DTBT Configuration (no changes made although I did try the following two, but not sure if there's any benefit):
          • Reserved Memory → 737
          • Reserved PMemory → 1184
    • USB Configuration
      • Legacy USB Support → Enabled
      • XHCI Hand-off → Enabled
    • Network Stack Configuration
      • Network Stack → Disabled
  • Chipset
    • Vt-d → Disabled
    • Internal Graphics → Enabled
    • DVMT Pre-Alloc → 64M
    • DVMT Total Gfx Mem → 256M
    • Audio Controller → Enabled
    • Above 4G Decoding → Enabled
  • Power
    • ErP → Disabled
    • RC6 (Render Standby) → Enabled
  • Save & Exit
    • Choose Save and Exit to save BIOS settings and reboot machine.

Created boot USB with minimum kexts in EFI

Installation, first part passed ok, install to disk (SSD, empty, 480GB HyperX) finished, but it never restart with succes after it.
