selected boot device failed - mehakrafiq - 02-27-2019

So I followed the guide to create macOS Mojave as given in your video tutorial however when I select to boot using the USB, I get the following message:

"selected boot device failed Press any key to continue"

my pc specs are 
Intel® Xeon® CPU E5-26500 @2.00 GHz
Nvidia Quadro FX 1800
2x 500 GB SSD 
BIOS Mode Legacy 
BIOS Version Dell A11

I tried changing the BIOS from legacy to UEFI however, after restart it kept saying no bootable device found even with the USB connected.

Secondly in the disk utility I don't see the EFI partition after installing clover on the USB

I am wondering will my system even allow a copy of macOS to run

diskutil list

Hey Mark, I'm having the same problem, could you be more specific as to what you mean by "send a", or is that a typo? 

By the way my built is the following:

Intel i7 7700k
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080
Asrock z270 Pro4
XPG Adata DDR4 (4x8)

Strange, was supposed to say "send a screenshot". Do the same thing and, well, send a screenshot lol

Looks like your BIOS isn't in UEFI mode?

I looked around in the BIOS, and It’s enabled.

One thing to consider is when configuring the install of Clover, not all of the options you had selected were there. I just selected the closest thing I could.

The categories in general are different, instead of "Drivers64UEFI", I have "UEFI Drivers" and "BIOS Drivers, 64 Bit". So the options are spread out, but I don't have:
"apfs_patched", "OsxAptioFix2Drv" (I do have OsxAptioFix3Drv).
The options I do have are spread across all of the categories instead of just "Drivers64UEFI", under: "FileVualt 2 UEFI Drivers", "UEFI Drivers", FileVault 2 BIOS Drivers, 64 Bit", "BIOS Drivers, 64 Bit".

Dude, you don't have "Clover for UEFI booting only" ticked. Follow the written tutorial completely.
