Boot Verbose then read the info that presents. Gives you a clue as to why it hangs there.
Thank you,

How do I boot verbose? (Sorry still learning here)

Did you try search first ? If using Clover press the space bar then type in -v
For OC just add it to your boot args.

Sorry I just did a search,

I should have done that first. Trying to do too many things at once today. I will give this a try shortly

This is what I see, the progress bar gets roughly half way and it reboots

Does the information you suggested still apply to Clover?
Older versions of Clover don't have any Quirks so no. Search for how to clear NVRAM when using Clover. Do that first.

This was using the EFI from the opening post on this thread
You should be asking @Gigamaxx the author of the EFI for assistance. Make sure you followed all of his BIOS setup suggestions before trying the install.

Well I am at a bit of a loss,

When I brought the machine (M93P Tiny, I5-4570T, 8GB RAM) it had a BIOS from 2018, I tried the latest BIOS and even downgraded last night to the 2016 BIOS recommended at the beginning of this thread. I have adjusted all the BIOS settings mentioned here and in other guides to no avail.

I made several boot USB sticks with Clover and even found a compatible Opencore EFI. It is the same, the progress bar gets around half way and it reboots. I am at a bit of a loss. I have an M83 SFF and installing Catalina with Clover was easy.

@Gigamaxx if you happen to see this I would appreciate any ideas you may have

Thanks in advance
