I apologies for the broadcast message but i have decided to reinstall my Hackintosh machine using Catalina 10.15.6 and .... I'm stuck at "PCI configuration begin"..
My configuration is:
Asus X99 Deluxe
Core i7 5960x
32 Gb memory
Knowing that my graphic card would not be fully recognised in Catalina i have also tried to install High Sierra but I managed to get exactly to the same point and i have therefore decided to give another try to Catalina and .... I'm still stuck.
(FYI I had managed to install 10.8 on my machine a while ago but a few things have changed since then and I may be missing a trick).
In a nutshell I believe my issue is linked to this message that i'm getting:
Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</string><key>IOResourcesMatch</key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-media</string></dict>
I tried all options (with/without flags and with/without kext) but i think that my issue is between my DSDT, SSDT and config.plist files.
Any help would be much appreciated!
I have attached my EFI folder and the print screen with the error message.

Update: Now running Mojave! Thanks to mojave2core! Yeah Still using C2D in 2019!
Inserted a nice and cheap GT710 that is not relying on nVidias Webdrivers and runs OOB under Mojave.
Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030
6 GB DDR2 RAM
Asus GT1030 2GB
Sandisk SSD 128GB
TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB
Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot)
Clover: 4297 4360
A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake!
You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports.
There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port.
For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed.
You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI.
Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it.
I'm trying to enable UHD 620 graphics on my laptop since it's almost impossible to use Catalina with it disabled (freezing), so after I followed this guide, every time I try to boot into Catalina it does get stuck at the apple logo and progress bar. Heres also the EFI if anyone wants to look at. I'm using this UHD 620 plist to try to get my graphics to work.
ASUS Zenbook UX331FN
Intel UHD Graphics 620
8GB of SDDR4 Ram
