Verified that FakeSMC.kext was in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10, and made sure that boot flag was correct, same result. Stuck on the spinning beach ball! Is there any further way to analyze what's causing it? Or is it at a point where I can't really pull any information from it?
Boot USB to Clover, highlight your Install USB, hit the spacebar, choose “with injected kext”
try this flag: kext-dev-mode=1 -f -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No dart=0 npci=0x2000 or 3000
I actually got it past this point finally, it's now getting to a point where it's stuck on a white screen with the spinning beach ball. All I had to do was add npci=0x2000 and it fixed the initial issues. Will try that flag now though!
