Cant find Serial Port and CFG-Lock

Hi guys, this is my first time trying to make a SFF hackintosh build with Catalina 10.15.

I followed the recommended vanilla guide: https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide/ and referenced https://github.com/Autocrit/Asus-ROG-STRIX-H370-I-GAMING-Hackintosh-Guide as well.

When i boot from the USB, the whole process freezes on this screen: https://imgur.com/a/xWKuiRd

"PCI Configuration End. bridges 4, devices 13"

Someone else had a similar issue with an ASUS mobo: https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/eaqjm3/vanilla_install_stuck_on_pci_configuration_end/

His fix was to enable Serial Port. However for my mobo, I can't seem to find a serial port option under the advanced settings :(

I'm booting from a USB 2 through a 2.0 dongle (mobo only has 3.0). Any help would be appreciated :( i've tried different methods across different forums for 3 days, and everytime it results in a failure.
