Installer hangs, fails to boot

I'm building a new hackintosh following the 10.14.4 upgrade totally decimating my previous machine (damn thing won't even boot from a clover USB disk now, suspect hardware failure at the same time). All I have is a Windows 10 box to edit my EFI partition on an existing Mojave install USB stick.

I really could use some help. Details below.

So I've done the best I can with regards to my config.plist and have managed to get another computer (hardware below) to boot Clover at least, but the installer (in verbose mode) hangs when it gets here:

I don't have access to Clover Configurator anymore, so my only option is manually hacking config.plist, which is just an XML file so no big deal there as long as I know what to put in it.

Hardware:

  • MSI Z170A Gaming M7 Motherboard
  • Intel Core i7-6700 2.4GHz
  • Radeon Vega 56 by MSI (link goes to the exact product I bought via Amazon)
  • 32GB RAM (Corsair)
  • Multiple working SSDs
  • Windows 10 installed and working right now (how I'm making this post)

Contents of EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other:

Now, one thing I have done that I don't know if I should have, was delete the APPLE directory under EFI/APPLE. This was due to a suggestion from some googling I found and that it contained a subdirectory and some firmware, specifically: EFI/APPLE/EXTENSIONS/Firmware.scap. As far as I know that doesn't make any difference but I figured I'd mention it just in case.

Here's the contents of EFI/CLOVER/config.plist:
