Catalina: Stuck at apfs_module_start:1689


I'm a bit stuck in getting Catalina Hackintosh to install on my HP Omen Laptop. (Going to be a Clover-based, and dual booted with Windows 10 (currently installed)). I am completely new to this and started around a day ago, I am picking some things up but not enough it seems - i have hit a brick wall.

Laptop Model: HP Omen 15-ax000na Laptop


  • CPU: Intel Core i5-6300HQ
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 965M (DISABLED in device manager) / Intel HD Graphics 530
  • Motherboard: HP 8257
  • Motherboard Chipset: Intel® HM170
  • Ethernet Card: Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller
  • Wifi/BT Card: WiFi 5 (Removed from laptop (Broken))
  • Keyboard: Standard PS/2 Keyboard
  • Touchpad: Synaptics SMBus TouchPad
  • What guide/tool followed:
  • What part I got an issue with: I was following the youtube tutorial (createinstallationmedia -> Clover -> boot from USB...). However, after pressing Boot MacOS with selected options, it does not pass beyond the following message directly at the beginning: apfs_module_start:1689: load:, v1412.11.7 (Here is a link to a picture of the error ).
  • What files/config I am using: The config I am using is a sample Skylake config.plist from Hackintosh Vanilla Desktop Guide website. The EFI and kexts are however identical to the ones used in the video tutorial above. (starts at 11:53). Also, here is a link to my EFI folder. If somebody could help me it would greatly appreciated.
  • Extra Info: I am Dual booting with Windows 10. Within the SSD drive where windows is installed, I have partitioned off around half the storage, I plan to install Catalina in this partition during the disk utility stage in the video tutorial.
