I'm transitioning from Clover to Opencore. I thought the process will be simpler but it turns out it isn't. I have created a bootable Catalina USB with Opencore but stuck at this error. I have attached my EFI and the verbose output. Anyone please provide some guidance please?
The laptop is HP Pavilion 15 Gaming:
Intel Core i7-9750H
256GB SSD + 1TB SSD
PS2 Keyboard + I2C Trackpad
This build is compatible up to Big Sur Beta
Now Compatible with macOS 11
Please leave feedback with issues or w/o
Comitted to Updating up to OS 11
MULTITOUCH TOUCHSCREEN SUPPORT
Latest Release Notes
Fixed Bluetooth and Wifi Stability Issues
Improved Preformance and Power Managements
Can Provide Files for Display Overrides
Additional Patches for 3K Display
updated for 15.4 rev 1
if using unsupported wifi card disable it in bios
use config.plist not HD520
Perfect Sleep/Wake for 1080P Model no-touch, still bugs for 3K
Exact same functionality as Catalina
Never tested USB C except for charging, works great
USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue)
4K model has minor sleep wake issues occasionally, 1080P is fully functional
4K sleep has been heavily improved however and glitches are rare, fixed by reopening lid
run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
If on 3K disable sleep completely for maximum stability
If no mouse, install all voodoo kexts using Kext Utility
This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies.
You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files.
This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements
This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable
Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other.
Set all SATA operation as AHCI
Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot
For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States
Enable UEFI Booting
INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)
Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup.
To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command
There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete.
You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur
You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw
Boot Entry Setup
Boot into the BIOS of the computer, then navigate to the Boot setup (or entries (not sure what it is called exactly, but it will be a list of the options your computer selects to boot)
Click add new, and make sure the USB isn't plugged in.
Select the only option that is avaiable, and in FS0 navigate to Boot/BOOTx64. Add this as an entry, then select this as whatever priority you would like.
Messages and Facetime
Gnerate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB
There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial)
This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of external recourses, or you can contact me for support.
Headphones and Audio
All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio
To resolve headphones static issue (wired) install combojack
Congratulations, there really aren't any more steps that are required. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

So I got some new hardware:
Asus Z490I Gaming ITX
NZXT H1 Case
samsung 970 EVO plus NVME
SK Hynix 1TB SSD
32GB G.Skill 3200 C14 Ram
MSI 5700 XT Evoke
So I got windows installed and wanted to install macOS using opencore. I had no luck getting past the [EB|#LOG:EXITBS:START] error and decided to use someone else's EFI who had the same motherboard minus the CPU and GPU (i7-10700k and Radeon VII). I went ahead with that EFI and voila got it to install and got past the error I had. The issue was after the install there is a reboot and that's where it hangs and give me an error log that I attached. Tried a few more things to see what I could do but was stuck on that error log every single time. Decided to try again today and now I can't get past the original error log. I've looked at the dortania guide for that error and tried everything it suggested but still won't get past the error. Not sure what else to do but to try Clover maybe. Anyone have any suggestions? I've attached my EFI as well. Thanks in advance.
In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.
This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches. My previous hacks
Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m
Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m
Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600
Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)
are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover. This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks. I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it. I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it. It is a perfect MacMini8,1.
