Once everything is installed and running (without RX 580), back up the system to establish a baseline. Let the system run for a couple of days to become familiar with the system. Then take a deep breath, put the RX 580 back in, set BIOS —> Initial Display Output —> PCI Slot 1 and prepare for the next fight!I finally made it to step 1. So, I recreated the USB on another Mac. I have a 2018 MacBook Air that has Mojave. I initially was using my 2010 MacBook that HighSierra. The reason I didn't use the MacBook Air, was because that's my work laptop so I try to keep all personal stuff off of it.
Anyway, I followed all the instructions to redo the USB, while unchecking "Plugin Type".
So right now I'm at the Disk Utility, no RX 580 installed, and Bios setup the way you recently recommended. Now, my question is, when I complete this first phase, and move on to the second phase, should I install the RX 580 then and put everything back in the bios as per your OP recommendations?
Some RX 580 cards are completely problem free while others — due perhaps to VBIOS — tend to be a bit finicky. There are several ways of dealing with them, but no one method applies to all. So it will be another iterative process to find a workable solution.
