Do you have the i7? Because my i5 8Gb cant boot from that one at all. 

I'm also using i5 8gb and it boots fine. FYI I'm booting from external usb drive but I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

Can you attach a picture of the log?

Maybe you could also try the file attached below, it's pulled from the working usb drive.

config.plist

 

P.S.: BTW this config will NOT boot the installer, if I'm not mistaken you can disable the kext patch for graphics to boot the installer.

Its booting and i'm getting the Apple loading screen, but halfway through it gets black again. Maybe you could send me your entire EFI to make sure its not a kext issue?

For some reason I can't upload my EFI zip here so I've uploaded it at mega.

Strange, i'm using a regular 16 gb USB to boot from, but it simply doesnt work. No clover, nothing. it just skips it.

Strange, at least clover should show up. Please make sure that USB is on the top of the list in the boot order and that Secure Boot is turned off.

You can also try booting directly from the USB from the BIOS by swiping right on USB in the boot order menu.

clover used to not show up for me too but that's not the case anymore. BTW which macOS version are you using? and are you trying to boot the installation USB or the OS?

Can you boot with -v flag and try to take a picture of the result?

stop sign usually means bad USB so maybe you can try another flash drive

Here is what I got after the screen was torn out apart on the last image and stop sign at top right

I've tried these several methods of booting into clover, but it still skips. I even double checked that i was using your Clover folder. Bios settings should be the same too... this is getting really strange here.

Try this folder: EFI_24042018.zip

If you're booting to the installer, while in clover menu, go to options > graphics injector and change ig-platform-id to 0x12345678

 

Make sure to disable secure boot in BIOS (tpm can be left enabled). As for boot order I dragged USB on top of everything

Booting the installer? Do you mean i have to reinstall it for this to work? I already tried to do that with the installed MacOS partition and it didnt change anything.

Opps, my bad I didn't clarify, I'll try to explain as clearly as possible.

At first I thought you haven't installed yet so I said that in case you're booting into the installer.

If the patch is in place, booting into a new installation or the macOS Installer will cause kernel panic since clover

cannot patch the kext outside of kernel cache.

So, to bypass this we need to boot the OS with an invalid platform-id (normally 0x12345678),

that will prevent kernel panic while disabling graphics, and then we can rebuild kernel cache while inside the OS.

Then after the kernel cache have been rebuilt we can boot with the patch on and a valid ig-platform-id (in this case 0x59160000).

 

To recap:

Boot with invalid ig-platform-id > rebuild kernel cache > Boot again with valid ig-platform-id

 

So assuming you have a clean macOS installation that works but has no graphics, you can try booting with my config and it should cause a kernel panic, then you can boot once with an invalid ig-platform-id of 0x12345678 and run "sudo kextcache -i /" in terminal and reboot with a valid ig-platform-id (i.e. 0x59160000), that should then enable the graphics.
