WowThanks I guess worth a try - I have one for another build that never happened so will see what happens thanks !
If you open your config.plist in Clover Configurator, you will see that it does not match the screenshots in “Final Steps in Post-Installation”. The settings in ACPI, Boot, Devices, SMBIOS, etc. are not configured correctly. Are you sure you’re mounting the correct EFI partition and opening the correct config.plist?Casey..
Nope still got the USB problem. Just got a boot fail, unplugged some USB sticks, restarted and then it booted.
So USB ports still causing a problem it would seem.
What did you notice in the post install that I missed? I did all the steps but it seems the miss was files being copied to the patched folder.
Only thing I can think of is to double check all the steps (entire instructions) again... unless you got any more ideas?
Hey, first of all thanks for the great instruction.
I did the build with the i9-9900k and the Gigabyte AMD Vega 64.
The system runs smooth as long as it runs but I am experiencing random freezes. They happen after some hours of runtime. Sometimes it doesn't wake up back from sleep, sometime it just freezes during work. (Happened by using several different apps) The picture on the screen incl cursor just freezes and the fans start to spin up. Only way to get out is a hard reset.
Sadly I'm not getting any Error Log. Anybody knows a way to narrow down the problem?
Edit: I do have a 1000 Watt Power Supply, so that should not be the problem.
I think so, I am mounting the EFI partition that says "Samsung SDD..." and opening the config.plist from there.If you open your config.plist in Clover Configurator, you will see that it does not match the screenshots in “Final Steps in Post-Installation”.

That's actually a good thing! This "MSDOS" stuff is the startup log and shutdown log that is appearing because we added "-v" to Boot Arguments. You can now delete that line using Clover Configurator.I think so, I am mounting the EFI partition that says "Samsung SDD..." and opening the config.plist from there.
I then made the changes, it was empty. Is that correct?
I restarted the computer, everything seems ok so far --> BUT now instead of the apple white logo loading screen, I get all this ms dos system black and white text, then it logs in. Same thing happens when I shutdown.
Do you know why I keep harping about creating bootable backups on cheap 256GB or 512GB SSDs mounted in even cheaper USB 3.0 external SSD enclosures? I issue this warning every time there is an O/S update. But you're in enough stress already, so I should watch what I say!I toasted my bootloader, and my new bootloader isn’t getting me to the OS. Super awesome is also the fact the bootloader backup is in time machine, which I can’t access
Okay, let's try to recover your system in a methodical way. I believe I actually encountered the same problem when I installed 10.14.5 onto a spare SSD and tried to see what would happen by deleting WhateverGreen. The computer would go through the startup sequence, but then the RX580 would terminate its video output, leading to a black screen. Unfortunately, this might have caused some unexpected collateral damage because restoring WhateverGreen did not fix the problem. In fact, I tried various alternatives including a new USB boot loader, but I could simply not overcome the RX580 black screen. The OS itself or a key preferences file might have been corrupted.I’m losing it at the point in the boot process where the Apple logo typically comes, right at the end. It’s loading, then the display shuts off. It doesn’t reboot, it just loses signal. My assumption is GPU related. I’ve never had trouble with this since moving to AMD GPU’s. In this case the RX580.
