Hello all!
So I have been trying to install Mac OS High Sierra in my AMD PC.
My specs are:
FX 8370-GTX 1060-12 GB DDR3 on Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard. (Please refer to my signature for a detailed configuration list or feel free to ask me anything else.)

I downloaded the v3 image from the downloads section and I am following this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zetiocqdWU
As per the video, I made a bootable USB with TransMac (using the restore with image option) and then changed SATA type in BIOS to AHCI.
I can boot comfortably to Clover (the grey screen with all the options?) and after adding the nv_disable=1 flag in the options menu, I proceed to boot from AMD High Sierra in Clover.
It starts with a single small horizontal cursor after which I can see the "does printf work?" message. After pressing y and/or enter the setup proceeds to a stripped down version of a BIOS or the Boot Menu with options like:
Boot Manager
and so on.
If select 'Continue', I get a screen full of red texts, with something like "!!!! X64 Exception Type". Also if I navigate to the Device Manager/Boot Manager I see two options EFI USB and EFI USB 1 and no matter what I choose, it proceeds to the same X64 Exception error.

Please note:
  • I have come across another such post in the forums, but the solution points to something that has to be done AFTER the installation, where as I am stuck at first step!
  • I have tried disconnecting my windows drives and removing two of my three RAM sticks, but to no avail.
  • Also I went ahead and disabled virtualization in BIOS as well, since some person said doing that solved their problems.
  • I have allocated a whole 500 GB HDD for Mac OS so partitioning and other related problems cannot be an issue.
