Ice Lake computers are only supported from Catalina, so don't waste your time trying to install High Sierra on yours. See our OS X/macOS section if you need further details on general support specs.

Don't use any old version of Clover either (r511x/r512x minimum).

My System Specs are on the attachments. These screenshots are taken from Cpu-Z. I also have 1 TB 5400rpm HDD.

The screenshots only provide the CPU info and not much more. What I'm looking for is:

CPU: you already provided

Touchpad: Synaptics, Elantech, Alps, I2C..etc

Audio: CodecID..ie ALCxxx

HDMI port?

DP port? 

USB-C port?

Those are the basics. Better that you post the export of dxdiag from Windows.

Also you can't use a Config from an old Clover with the new Clover, way too many changes due to new Clover integrating OpenCore drivers for Big Sur.

I don't have any experience with the new Clover, I have since moved to OpenCore. I'll help you with OpenCore setup going forward after I have all those info requested.
