No set your bios to boot from the main macOS disk first.

Then if that fails use the USB installer to boot your main macOS disk.

tried..As soon after clover boots stop sign comes up. I guess something is wrong with Clover??
Settings overwritten? No Idea. In Clover i clicked on USB Ownership and USB Injection and the keyboard was working. Before from 10 restarts 2 times usb worked. Something wrong with the usb connection on mobo? I disconnected anything besides Monitor and Keyboard. Even all HDD disconnected only OSX SSD is connected.

Add the Verbose boot argument -v to your boot options and post a photo showing the place where clover stops.

You can do this while on the Clover boot screen.
  1. Highlight your maOS drive icon.
  2. Press the spacebar.
  3. Select -v Verbose mode from the list of options that appear.
  4. tab to the bottom of the menu to return to the boot screen and press enter to boot your system
You may also want to try booting in Safe Mode, using the -x boot argument. This is also present on the list of boot options.

Your kernel cache is borked. It looks as though you installed or removed a kext from the /Library/Extensions or /System/Library/Extensions folder without rebuilding the cache and repairing permissions.

You need to boot your system without any caches. This option has been removed from Clover all recnet versions of Clover. So you will need to create a USB drive with just Clover installed, an old version. But still using your current CLOVER folder.

I have provided a link where you can download a version of Clover that has the Boot without caches option, Clover_v2.3k_r3763 -

You will need to use the USB Clover drive to boot your system, when on the boot screen and with your macOS drive highlighted, press the spacebar. The option to boot without caches should be in the list of boot options.

To create a USB with Clove i use the instructions i have from you??? All what i did was a repair with Kext Utility. Didn't install anything besides updates for Apps like Cubase, Studio One and Plugins. I always use Kext Utility after installing Apps or update Apps

It happens, whether you explicitly installed or removed a kext is a moot point.

The kernel cache is not working, so you can't boot your system.

Fixing the kernel cache as recommended above will be esseential if you are to get your system back up and running, without the need to reinstall everything.

Having now trouble to get USB Connection to work. Only Keyboard is working. When i put the USB Drive in the in Boot it stops at Loading Operation System. Do i need to make a Boot Drive with Sierra and then install Clover on it???

If you are running Sierra or High Sierra then yes. Kext Utility will work just fine.

If you are running Catalina then no, Kext Utility will not work due to the additional security processes implimented by Apple. You would need to use Hackintool, which mounts and changes the Catalina-Data partition so it is in Read and Write mode.

Under normal circumstances the Catalina-Data partition is in Read-only mode.
