To fix this issue, follow the steps below

STEP 1: Mount your EFI Partition


The very first step is to mount your EFI Partition.
Mount your EFI Partition of your system drive.


STEP 2: Adding patch for Boot Graphics Glitch

Open your config.plist file using Clover Configurator
Navigate to the kernel and kext patches tab and add the following patch in your config.plist.
