After reading several threads, and muddling through a lot of the information, I finally managed to successfully install the MIUI EU ROM with no bootlooping, or other issues. This guide is specifically for installation with microG (since I'm trying to stay away from Google!). If you have additional tips, please add it to the thread, and I will try and update the OP as needed....

Please note that this guide assumes that you can perform basic stuff (like installing ADB drivers, installing TWRP, etc.).

Pre-requisities:

Unlocked bootloader
Latest TWRP (v11) or CN TWRP installed on phone
Working ADB connection between phone and PC


Pre-installation:

Download Nanodroid and Nanodroid patcher latest version - must have this on the PC
Download Magisk latest version - must have this on the PC
Download latest MIUI EU ROM - must have this on the PC

Using TWRP, create a full backup of your current setup (just in case!)
Using Titanium/Migrate/whatever backup all programs, settings, etc.

Backup phone (the 128 Gb part!) to PC - This is ESSENTIAL, since the next steps will result in all data on the phone being wiped!


Installation:

Boot into TWRP and wipe System, Data, Caches and Storage (I usually wipe three times for good measure!)
In TWRP, select Wipe>Format Data, type in "yes" and format the entire phone (this is to get rid of encryption)
Reboot into TWRP
From the PC, copy the downloaded MIUI EU ROM to the phone
Using TWRP, install the ROM
Reboot system
Do the initial set up, enable Developer settings, set up ADB, etc.
Reboot into TWRP
Copy Nanodroid patcher, Nanodroid, and Magisk to phone
Using TWRP, use the Nanodroid patcher to patch system.jar to enable signature spoofing support (since the EU ROM is deodexed, this should work with no issues)
Reboot into TWRP (probably not required, but this is what I did!)
Install Nanodroid
Reboot into system
Setup microG
Reboot into TWRP
Install Magisk
Reboot into system


Continue on to debloating apps, restoring backups, etc.

Struck at patcher

Hello mate, I am trying to install it on my note 7 pro device. I am struck at nanodroid patcher; it gives me error "failed to apply patches". Did you try microg on newer miui eu rom? Do I have to do additional steps? Thanks for your guide though!

You need more read about AOSP and GMS, this is good way to hardening stalking from Google. I know Google have keys from Android system like every developers, but cant using our data for ads and marketing (and more) when we are not using proprietary apps and frameworks where we have to accept licence agreement. (SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH)
