Help booting Mojave installer

Hi all,

I'm having a bit of trouble trying to get my Mojave installer to boot. I've attached the image with my error.

System
CPU: Ryzen 3 3200G
Motherboard: ROG Strix B-350F
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 3000MHz (x2)

- Tried a few different configs but revert back to the vanilla master posted in the tutorial
- Tried setting my SMBIOS correctly for my RAM configuration
- Tried both RAM sticks in different spots
- Tried 1 RAM stick in all 4 different locations
- Tried changing between different osxaptiofixdrv

There's probably more I've tried but I'm starting to loose it and need a bit of help to figure this one out.

OpenCore or Clover? Also did you include the AMD patches in your config?

Sorry, wasn't clear about the boot loader. I am using clover boot loader, latest version. I've copied the patches to the config via Xcode.

We are referring to the patches in the vanilla master from github, correct?

What version of Mojave? Clover patches only support Mojave 10.14.6 (18G84, 18G87, 18G95, 18G103)

That's why then. Again Clover patches only support 10.14.6. Follow the vanilla guide and give Catalina a go depending on your GPU of course and use OpenCore. https://vanilla.amd-osx.com/

Wow, just looked at the guide & now see that. Would it be possible to install using OpenCore? Not as familiar with that, but would give it a go before downloading Catalina.

If not I'll likely just give Catalina a go.

Only asking because I noticed the version under OpenCore is 10.14.*

Ok, so I managed to get OpenCore to start the boot into the installer, but before I even get to the installer I get basically the same error I got in the first picture.

Start LoadRAMDisk
EndLoadRAMDisk
Start FinalizeBootStruct
Start RandomSeed
End RandomSeed
"

Any thoughts?
