I have repeatedly tried to follow the post from XLNC on InsanelyMac, https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic
... nt-2658085, but I cannot enter single user mode. When I insert the -s switch in the boot parameters of CLOVER and select to boot from the SSD Mojave (where I have installed the OS in the first phase) the system goes into an infinite loop. It keeps displaying those messages about "AppleUSB...." and some other stuff, just like it does during normal boot but now it never ends! I have been waiting up to one hour but it keeps going. If I remove the -s switch the system boots normally, but again I get stuck at the Data & Privacy screen!
I must point out that I don't use a "fixed" open source Shaneee kernel. I am using the AMD Vanilla method
(following the https://vanilla.amd-osx.com
instructions) for creating the installer and apply the kernel patches for AMD CPU on the fly through CLOVER. So, I probably cannot use the various prelinked kernels mentioned in various comments to tackle the problem. I am asking for help in solving the Data & Privacy screen reboot problem, when one uses AMD Vanilla installer method.
I tried issuing blindly the commands mentioned by XLNC on InsanelyMac comment mentioned above but it did not lead me to the login screen. After I rebooted by presing the reboot button on the PC and booted into USB installer and selected to boot from "Install from macOS Mojave" (the part installed earlier onto SSD) to continue with setting up the system, the system comes back with the Apple logo and the progress line and after that it enters an infinite loop of displaying some messages and then the same messages again.
I finally renstalled Mojave on the SSD disk and I am at the same point I was before: reboot after I press "next" at the Data & Privacy screen!
Did anybody have any succes by following XLNC instructions to overcome the problem? How did he/she do it?
Because it seems to me that, by issuing a bunch of intricate commands blindly seems to only lead to a damaged installation. It would be very helpful if somebody has a more straightforward approach. Or, we could just forget that we'll ever move to Mojave, which is a shame.
