You're installing Catalina, you'll need a new set of USB Port limit patches. I've included in the attached Config file.

Also I don't know where you got the kexts from, but it's a total mess.

Delete everything in /kexts/Other but leave the following kexts only:

  • AppleALC
  • CodecCommander
  • IntelMausi
  • Lilu
  • USBInjectAll
  • VirtualSMC
  • WhateverGreen
  • SATA-100-series-unsupported (might be optional)

I've seen this when installing Calatina 10.15.4 with older version of Clover, but from your log file, it shows you're running latest v5118.

Did you replace the entire clover from another source after install Clover?

Go ahead and reinstall Clover on top, it won't overwrite the Config, ACPI or Kexts folders. It'll just update the drivers.

Then try again.
