Sorry for my poor English, but some of my experiences may help you. I tried to reinstall HIGH SIERRA with APFS (using EmuVariableUefi-64.efi in driver64uefi), The difference is, I changed OsxAptioFixDrv-64 with AptioMemoryFix. have a try, good luck!
Can you guide be how to do that? this is my first hackitosh.

Can't find anything about "The recovery server could not be connected".
Absolutely clean installation, all was done referring to the instruction.

Any ideas? Thx!
If you are only on Wifi you need to connect to the wifi on the top right corner.

Loved this guide - followed through with links and HP Compaq 6300 pro (With GT710) and it all worked also using another guide on TonyMacX86. WORKS! FAB!
(set BIOS to all UEFI and no legacy - and used MultiBeast to sort network, sound and Mac ID :eek:)

[ps: I can't change the info on mt TMx86 login, to show the new second hand gear I bought...]

I had this. But repeating the process with network cable plugged in (and network/internet available) solved it

NEED HELP!!! Finished the Hackintosh build of a G4 Quicksilver case but I am now stuck on the High Sierra Installation.
The USB is recognized and the OS starts loading but then it gets stuck on the apple logo with half of the progress bar and the circle progress bars (see below).
My set up is ASUS Z370G, Nvidia 1060 OC 6GB, I7-8700K, 16GB RIPJAWS V.
Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

Did you followed this?

STEP 3: Recommended BIOS Settings
If you're installing on a recommended CustoMac desktop with AMI UEFI BIOS, the options are simple. For other systems make sure to set your BIOS to Optimized Defaults, and your hard drive to AHCI mode. Here are standard AMI UEFI BIOS settings for Gigabyte AMI UEFI BIOS, Gigabyte AWARD BIOS, ASUS AMI UEFI BIOS, and MSI AMI UEFI BIOS.

1. To access BIOS/UEFI Setup, press and hold Delete on a USB Keyboard while the system is booting up
2. Load Optimized Defaults
3. If your CPU supports VT-d, disable it
4. If your system has CFG-Lock, disable it
5. If your system has Secure Boot Mode, disable it
6. Set OS Type to Other OS
7. If your system has IO Serial Port, disable it
8. Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled
9. If you have a 6 series or x58 system with AWARD BIOS, disable USB 3.0
10. Save and exit.
