When I boot up, I get to the apple logo and loading bar. The loading bar fills up to random spots, 50%, 75%, 100% and then the cursor appears in the top left. I can move the cursor, I can SSH into the machine, I can even VNC into it (which shows the loading screen too). The login screen never seems to display. ALSO I tried booting with the -v flag and it never hangs, it all passes and goes to the loading screen where it proceeds to get stuck. Therefore, I have no direction in terms of what to debug.

Steps I Did To Install High Sierra:
1. Made a usb stick with clover
2. Stuck OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi in drivers64UEFI to make it boot
3. added nvda_drv=1 and injected nvdia drivers and set platform id to 3
4. installed MacOS
5. it booted fine the first time
6. followed this guide exactly to install web drivers: I installed version 105.
7. rebooted and got a black screen, but DVI worked (I was using HDMI) and so did remote desktop. The Mac at this point detected the GPU just fine, but only DVI would work
8. It never booted again, and always now gets stuck on the loading screen with the mouse

Not really sure what to do at this point. It doesn't hang with -v since it continues to the stuck screen with the mouse so I can't see any error logs or anything here. I have the latest Lilu and WhateverGreen. The only thing I can think of is maybe I need to disable my iGPU? The problem is though, I don't see a way to do that in my BIOS (screenshots attached below).

The funny thing too is that I get stuck on the apple bootup screen but I have a cursor, I can SSH, I can VNC into the device (which also shows the stuck bootup screen). And if I just leave the computer in this state it will even put itself to sleep. It's as if the entire system is up and running, but I'm stuck on this loading screen, and also HDMI and displayport don't work.

Does anyone have ANY ideas what I can do?
