Hey everyone, I followed Herve's guide to installing Mojave/Catalina on a Latitude 7490 but am getting kernel panics every time I try the install. I managed to get past the hardware compatibility check, but now I am getting "EFIRuntime" as last loaded kext. I've searched and tried about 10 different solutions posted on forums but keep getting different panics. Any assistance out there?

are you using 1 16gb stick of ram or 2 8gb having both ram slots populated?

Using 2 8gb sticks.

Remove the DSDT.aml from /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched and try again

If still fails, boot with boot arg

FYI, moving post, this is not a guide

Almost success! Removing DSDT.aml successfully got me to this screen (see below). Now the mouse is stuck in the top left corner. Apologies for creating this in the wrong spot, I'm new to the forum.

Yessir it is, but for some reason my external USB mouse/keyboard is not working as well. I was able to get to this screen, but I can't use the keyboard to enter past it either. I can cycle through using Tab, but pressing Enter doesn't do anything.

Huge help, thanks! I was able to get into the Install screen. Now it's saying that my blank HDD has a newer version of MacOS. This is just after I did a complete erasing of the drive in question. The drive in question is a 500GB NVMe.
