Hello, I ran into this same issue about a year ago with Mojave and just kind of gave up, but now I'm trying to install Catalina and its doing the exact same thing. Its giving me "Still waiting for boot device" with jumbled up text and the error cross.

I foud this post when looking for the error and even after trying everything that it says, I still cannot boot.

I've tried:
  • Plugging the USB drive into a USB 2 port
  • Using a USB 2 external hard drive instead of a flash drive
  • Using a USB 2 hub
  • Adding USBInjectAll.kext to the installer

I just tried to update my BIOS and it seems to be getting stuck on the thing right before waiting for root device, but this time without the garbled text and the prohibitory symbol.

I’ll try remaking my USB drive

It seems like it’s not giving power to any USB ports... my keyboard and mouse don’t have their RGB, and the USB drive doesn’t have the read light...

I posted my issue in the r/Hackintosh Discord server and found the fix, I needed to put this in my config.plist under ACPI -> DSDT -> Patches:
Code:
<dict>
  <key>Comment</key>
  <string>Fix Z390 BIOS DSDT Device(RTC) bug</string>
  <key>Find</key>
  <data>oAqTU1RBUwE=</data>
  <key>Replace</key>
  <data>oAqRCv8L//8=</data>
</dict>
