  1. Hey all! First and foremost I appreciate everyone's help so far. I had reached the promise land once on my HP Pavilion Laptop 15-cx0056wm with High Sierra so I KNOW it is possible - basically I got, very easily actually, up and running with High Sierra. Frankly my entire EFI went corrupt out of no where and I don't know why so I am doing it all clean - which was no big deal until....Problem is what I did the first time now all of the sudden it isn't working (yes I backed up my EFI / Clover folder but it isn't working). Same BIOS settings, same steps I followed etc. Attached is my EFI and my specs are below. Mind you this was with a dual boot with Windows 10 and again no issues. Used this guide primarily: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/But I could almost reach the installer (close to it anyways, I got to the screen after all the verbose stuff with the apple and white bar) with either config as long as I used the cpus=1 flag . -- then it sits idle for ever.EFI folder that I'm trying to use for the High Sierra USB: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NhOUVAzvSBq52amB9myEzhXr02V30u6F/view?usp=sharingPic of panic: https://photos.app.goo.gl/K95eWMyr3LZ1SiPC9 . (in order)Clover folder from ORIGINAL, previously working install that is no longer working: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sXYSoj_C9lCG-kh7fEskwsW1zaa6DGHhRead some stuff on threading of my CPU and how HP's have trouble or something? I'm not too sure. I tried to google parts of the KP but not much was related. Wondering why alllllll of the sudden too.BIOS settings pics: https://photos.app.goo.gl/MqaK2pQ7DchgtzS57My existing install boots to the log in screen perfectly normal then resets the PC out of nowhere now.Here is the EFI folder that is now messed up out of no where (was on my HDD for High Sierra) you can see config.plist is shot... : https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Ekyxw-NlK4exkCIRkKi_odRNvfWAQ8OCProduct SpecsProduct number: 4PY21UAProduct name: HP Gaming Pavilion - 15-cx0056wmMicroprocessor: Intel® Core™ i5+ 8300H (2.3 GHz base frequency, up to 4 GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, 8 MB cache, 4 cores)Chipset: Intel® HM370Memory: 8 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)Video graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti (4 GB GDDR5 dedicated) + Intel UHD 630 1536 MbHard drive: 1 TB 7200 rpm SATADisplay: 15.6" diagonal FHD IPS anti-glare micro-edge WLED-backlit (1920 x 1080)HP Imagepad with multi-touch gesture supportWireless connectivity: Intel® Wireless-AC 9560 802.11b/g/n/ac (2x2) Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® 5 ComboNetwork interface: Integrated 10/100/1000 GbE LANExpansion slots: 1 multi-format SD media card readerExternal ports: 1 USB 3.1 Type-C™ Gen 1 (Data transfer only, up to 5 Gb/s); 3 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (1 HP Sleep and Charge); 1 HDMI 2.0; 1 RJ-45; 1 headphone/microphone comboThank you for your time.
