Well, i've installed on SP6 and everything works like a charm. The above guide was to fix the issues. Just following the above guide will not result in success with the Graphics or any other hardware. That's the base and you must have it to avoid any conflicts and further issues.

No PR files attached.

Thank you so much for your quick reply.

Would you be kind enough to provide EFI Folder of your SP6 so that I can try it on my SP4 ?

The hardware is different. It's a 8th Gen. Follow the guide and provide your PR files so that i can check.

I am struck on Apple logo itself while installing, hence, no PR files etc. is available. It seems that there is something wrong in the EFI folder of my USB Installer and that's why I requested for the same. I know very well that the hardware of SP6 and SP4 is different !!!

Use your old USB or the SSD to boot and provide the updated files.

I'm not having the SP6 with me now. Sold it months ago. No clue without any PR files.
Maybe you can try to boot it using invalid ig-platform-id.
