Hello all,
Well, I have a laptop having the following configuration.

ASUS FX553VD-DM483 (GL553VD Board)
Display: 1920x1080 FHD
CPU: Intel i7-7700HQ Quad Core 2.8 GHz
GPU: Intel HD 630 + Nvidia 1050 2 GB (Optimus)
Hard Drive: Inbuilt 1 TB Hard Drive
SSD: WD Blue 500 GB M.2 SSD (Didn't come with a laptop, I added it later)
PS2 Keyboard and I2C Elan1200 Precision Touchpad.

I tried installing MacOS Mojave with Unibeast by the manual method using this guide.
It takes too much time for loading with the following error:
Kextd stall, (240s): 'AppleACPICPU'
404109


404110


It takes so much of time to boot into the installer and when it eventually did, it installed and again after rebooting it took so much of time. Installation was done and now I am trying to boot into the MacOS from USB, it gets stuck on Apple Logo and just then the screen just blacks out.
(my guess is, maybe because it is trying to load Nvidia Drivers, which is making it stall, but I am using RehabMan's laptop config files)

But when I tried with UniBeast tool, the installation just worked like a charm. Just there was one problem - It rebooted abruptly while installing when it was saying (2 mins remaining). I was concerned about that but when I booted to that partition again, it just worked.

Now I have a question. What difference it would make if I install with Unibeast tool vs the manual method.
I want a stable build so what approach will be great?

Sorry, I am so new to this, so any help is really appreciated.

Thanks a lot for giving your time to read.

because the clover installation requires updated clover via sourceforge to work on latest Mojave

i know, that is why you are getting that error on your screenshot

as mentioned, you need to use the latest clover via sourceforge

Umm, a silly question. I have already lost my MacOS and to get an actual MacBook I will need to wait for 2 days. Is there any way to replace that clover built without macOS?
Edit: I have Windows and Ubuntu Working!

you can boot from your unibeast usb installer, select to boot macOS and reach the desktop that way?

No, unfortunately, I have already overwritten that USB while doing that manual method. What I had is a backup of Unibeast's clover folder from EFI (Fortunately I took the backup of it on desktop and it was uploaded to iCloud).
I copied that Clover folder in the EFI partition of the USB and tried to boot into that installed MacOS.

No luck. Same results. The kext is still getting stalled and it's waiting for 240seconds for 3 times.

I tried to boot into macOS Installer but still the same results.
This never happened with the proper USB made by Unibeast.

The problem seems to be in the "install_osx" partition itself. Maybe the kext? confused.

you know the reason, it is the old clover you have on your usb installer

when you get your mac back, you can then install latest version on the usb installer

That was the clover made by unibeast, I thought that would be the latest. Anyways, I will try once again when I will get the MacBook again.

Can you please answer this question?
