Thanks for your help - there's no mention of a 'port limit patch' in this installation guide. Can you point me to info regarding this on EliteMacx86?
I guess the two things I need to know are 1) Where I get the patch from and 2) What folder on the USB installation Pen drive to I put it in or - is this a script to be added to the config.plst?

I can find posts about fixing USB ports AFTER installation but not about fixing a USB installer in order to work before....

Would I have to mount the EFI contained on the pen drive, open the config.plst and edit that? Is there a legacy config.plst that's 'ready to go' that I could just replace the current one with, if that's the case?

Currently I don't understand the process of adding a 'port limit patch' to a USB installer. Perhaps that's something that could be added to the installation instructions?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
It can be added and before. For some systems, it cannot before without the patch. You can find the port limit patch here:

I've installed the 'port limit patch' and it was the same situation - it goes to circle with line through it.
