When I attempted to create a fresh USB device, I hit this error. I couldn't see either of those 2 items. What went sideways?? The error wouldn't go away after doing an OK and Continue. This was on the same machine where I generated the original USB device about a month ago...

Made Memory and Boot Argument changes to Configure.plist on a freshly generated USB in the /EFI/EFI/CLOVER folder. The 2 other plist files were not changed. Similar results:

OK, getting a bit worried here as I have not heard from anyone in over a week!?!?

Unanswered questions:

  • Are there supposed to be 3 config.plist files?
    • If so, do all get the changes listed in this thread get applied to each file? The plist file in /EFI/EFI/CLOVER is considerably larger than the other 2, which appear to be the same.
  • There seems to be a bit of a Catch 22 here as since my machine is defined as a 3,1 I can’t download Catalina and other versions require an initial version to be already in place. In other words, I can find a 10.xx.1 or 2 or 3, etc. but in the description it requires a prior version (10.xx.0 for 10.xx.1 for example) to already be installed, if I understand correctly.
  • If the Kernel Panics look very similar, does that mean that none of the fixes so far have not addressed the actual problem?
  • In the Debug information, why does a Generic_IOreg listing show up instead of the actual one? It keeps extending the time, but eventually it times out and produces the generic listing.
  • My system runs off of an approved Samsung solid state drive. Does that need to be accounted for somewhere in the plist files?

Anyway, please advise as what to do next...

Thanks!

Please explain more succinctly. This thread now has 6-pages and anyone wanting to help may not know what the current problem is. :thumbup:

Post #53. "can't perform kext scan; no kext summary". It has never gotten beyond that point.

The rest is my asking questions in an effort to try to understand what's going on. However, as I said. since all of the kernel panics look very similar (to me anyway), it suggests that the fundamental issue, whatever it may be, has not been addressed...

Okay ...

Is this a UEFI boot, or Legacy? I guess the former.

What is the "-npci=0x2000" boot command for?

:)
