There are two legacy bootloader in the High Sierra USB, You could also try booting with Clover

After selecting USB as Primary boot device keep pressing number 6. It would boot into Clover bootloader.

You might want to add GenericUSBXHCI.kext like previous time.

I downloaded your file and then i extracted it. After that i  added GenericUSBXHCI.kext folder from your file into /BOOTLOADER/EFI/CLOVER/CLOVER/kexts/Other and /BOOTLOADER/Extra/Extensions and when i booted my laptop in boot section i added -v 6 , But unfortunately i still have a same problem

After some internet research the Pentium T7500 does not support SSE4.1, which is required in MacOS High Sierra. So unless you can replace your CPU with one that supports SSE4.1, you can't run High Sierra on that machine. The latest OS you can run on that machine is El Capitan.

When the USB kexts are based on SSE4 it can not be loaded by your processor. It might be causing still waiting for root device error.

Please confirm your processor’s Instructions Set.

You can try to Install Hackintosh Yosemite.

Thanks for helping.

It is possible to install "Catalina" on my laptop?Or i can just install Yosemite?

In any case i am trying to download Yosemite 10.10.1 ISO.zip.

Hi, The latest macOS versions requires SSE4+ 

So my advice would be to Install Yosemite.

Catalina requires SSE 4.2 so you can not Install on this laptop.
