Hence i couldn’t find a sata controller setting. But anyways i had previously installed Yosemite on my laptop & multibooted with windows 8.1 with clover. But now when i am trying to install sierra its showing me errors like system uptume in nanoseconds. Tried all plist files, custom plist files, old plist files, changed boot flags, nothing works. What shall i do? please help.

      Apple ID might not work on the Hackintosh until you fix it. If it works then no, it will not create any issue. Yes, you can buy apps from AppStore, but first, you need to make it work with Apple ID.

        Give a try to AMD Legacy, but I am not sure it will work on your laptop because it’s AMD and most of AMD systems aren’t supported by Apple, and it will not function without a kernel panic.

    Hi folks. I’m trying to install on a HP Envy 700-410P. I5 Gen 4 ivy bridge. Stock graphics. Did the bios config, and tried the Nv_disable option, and it just comes back to the Clover screen.

    I did see some info on config files, but do not have access to a Mac. I used Win32 Disk imager to create the image on a USB drive. Anyone else out there have any success with this hardware I wonder? Am I stuck without access to a Mac?

      1. blankPixelriffic

        I do appreciate the response. After giving up on trying the image posted earlier in this thread, I spent an afternoon on Virtualbox, following a couple of different howtos, and never could get the virtual machine to boot Snow Leopard. I may have access to an old Mac Mini at some point. Might just wait for that.

        I said incorrectly said Ivy Bridge in my post, but on further inspection this HP appears to be a Haswell, with a H87 chipset and Intel 4600 graphics. Has anyone been successful with one of these or similar?

    1. blankFaiz Orz Reply

      Yeah, you can use this. First, you need to Download this and Win32DiskImager to create macOS Bootable USB Installer. Watch the full video tutorial on our Youtube channel:
      UPDATE: Sorry, the links are removed from YouTube. Sorry for the inconvenience.

      No, definitely you will not lose your laptop. If you failed to install macOS Sierra on your notebook then all you need to reinstall Windows again, and it will be normal.

    After installation I get stuck on the apple logo shredded horizontally. I got this when installing from USB but this disappeared after 30 sec. I am able to boot with -v and -s but it crashes after the internet setting. Any help?

      1. blankThijss96

        I don’t know if clover is installed on harddisk because when I leave BIOS in legacy I can only boot when the USB is connected. I did no clean installation and no post installation. Also, I did not use any boot flags when installing from USB boot (except for the ones which were already turned on)

      2. blankThijss96

        Besides that, when in safe mode: I’m not getting the usual clean installation. It moves to WiFi/Ethernet settings after keyboard settings, instead of transfer.

      Hello dear, So in this cause boot with the same bootable USB and boot flag that you used while installing macOS. But this on clover screen use the same options and select macOS disk and go ahead.

    I already created a bootable usb from windows 10. The first thing is I don’t know what to choose from hd 5000 etc from notebooks, I have Intel HD 400 soyears I choose hd 520 530 540 because it says there that I need to choose below from the numbers. Second is when I boot into the EFI USB Device, my laptop just stuck in Lenovo logo. I dont know what to do.

    Do i have to erase my whole hardisk to install sierra ?
    becuase currently i have windows 10 and my personal files in my hardisk , i have 5 partitions , 1 partition is free and have 100gb , can i install it there , without loosing my windows 10 and data ?

    1. blankMukhtar Jafari Post author Reply

      Yeah, you can install it on that drive. But one thing you should now that your USB flash drive should be MBR or UEFI.
      For example: If you have installed Windows 10 with Legacy Bootable USB then your mac USB should the the same legacy. Otherwise, it will not work.

    Hey! I’ve been giving it a try to this method, and it works fine for me when i create the USB installer (I made it on a MacBook Pro, with UniBeast software), but when I try to boot on a PC Laptop (a Sony Vaio STV line) it loads the Clover Boot Menu, but it gets stuck while booting the USB, the screen fades to black, and doesn’t show more; anyway I connect an external display through HDMI, and it show some distorted image… do you think that maybe there’s something wrong on the USB drive, or it could be some incompatibility with the laptop? Thanks a lot in advance for your assistance!

    hellooo.i have an asus k56cb laptop with intel integrated hd4000 and nvidia gt640m gpu. i made a usb installer with the windows 10 method and set the bios settings but when i boot the usb i get a black screen. i mean the clover doesnt load so. i tried with different config.plist but it didnt work. what should i do now?

    1. blankMukhtar Jafari Post author Reply

      Hey dear Sina,
      I think the problem is with the USB Installer, it didn’t bootable correctly. Try again and watch the video tutorial carefully, if didn’t work then let me know.

      1. blankSina

        I tried searching and troubleshooting for 2-3 weeks , and didn’t find anything useful. I think its related to the boot and it cannot boot so the black screen appears. I taught myself the clover stuff and now I know a lot. as I don’t have access to any mac I used the cloud clover configurator to edit clover. I put some boot flags and checked many options but still the black screen comes up. I got a debug from it and I see nothing bad in it but there is a line that says resolution 1366×768 not found. I made the installer again for few times with usb3 device but still the black screen. sorry for long comment and taking your time. whats your suggestion?

      2. blankHamza

        I have an Asys s46 laptop which pretty much same as yours except that it has nvidia 740m instead of 640m. Were you able to install mac os successfully in your machine?

    I have successfully installed…

    I faced problem at first like the efi drive wasn’t showing in windows due to which i wasn’t able to replace config.plist file so i used an ubuntu vm to open the efi drive and replace the config.plist for my system nvidia gen 2 now only post installation issues remain like wifi and ethernet not working

    i thank all the wikigain team for putting this awesome easy to use guide….

    keep doing the awesome work.

    I have succesfully installed macOS Sierra and I have installed the ‘Customac’ tools (I also tried ). I opened my system settings and although all the .kext extensions are installed, they are not loaded (when it comes to Network extensions). Basically everything works well except for Ethernet / Wifi. Also, I have to boot using the USB stick. Without it I get a grub error saying ‘Unknown Filesystem’. Contact me for logs etc. I used the Nvidia Gen2 config for my GeForce 840M card and here is a link for my laptop specs; (scroll down for the specs).

    I’m running a Lenovo Thinkpad e570, AHCI isn’t showing up in BIOS. There’s no option for changing the SATA controller. I get Clover to open, but when I attempt to install Mac OSX from Clover, I get stuck on a screen that ends with a bunch of “+”. Please help, i’ve been trying to figure it out.

        I have used three methods to create the bootable USB, unibeast, following terminal code, and transmac. Unfortunately with these, I always get stuck at apple boot logo, after clover GUI. I get this message, “osxaptiofixdrv: starting overrides for system\library\coreservices\boot.efi

      2. blanknico

        I have the same problem. I also tried to use a newer version of Clover, but no changes. What can I do?

      1. blankChris

        My SSD will not show in disk utility. No options for AHCI in UEFI. Turned everything else off that was explained.

  63. blankChris Reply


    Yes I put the 5xx one in the USB installer. I even made unalocated space on my ssd for free space but still can’t find my ssd. Can see the USB no problem. 🙁

    I have a dell tablet PC 7275.

      1. blankChris

        This is where I’m stuck at

        I have half my ssd in Windows disk partition manager left the free space unalocated. Do I need to put that free space as a partition in windows disk manager and then install Mac OS

      2. blankFaiz Orz

        yes it should look like that. Use this article to know how to create new drive:
        Okay once do this if you still having the same problem then you need to apply this to your BIOS:
        – If your system has USB deep sleep disabled it.
        – Set the SATA Controller Mode to AHCI
        – USB Boot is Enabled
        – UEFI Boot is enabled
        – Enable Legacy Boot but set the Boot Priority to UEFI first
        – If your CPU supports VT-d, disable it
        – If your system has CFG-Lock, disable it
        – If your system has Secure Boot, disable it
        – Set OS Type to Other OS
        – If your system has IO SerialPort, disable it
        – Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled
        – If you have a 6 series or x58 system with AWARD BIOS, disable USB 3.0
        – Save and exit.

      3. blankChris

        I don’t have the exFat only fat32 and the one I have done.

        Also there is no sata controller in my UEFI to change to AHCI it is that system as default.

        I have a dell latitude 7275 it’s like surface pro.

        So annoying that it can find the USB plugged in but not my ssd

      4. blankFaiz Orz

        Hey dear Chris,
        I faced the same problem once when I have forgotten to set the SAta controller mode to AHCI when I enable AHCI then the problem solved. If you don’t have the Sata Controller then make you sure you set this options on your BIOS UEFI:
        1. Access BIOS/UEFI Setup.
        2. Load Optimized Defaults
        3. If your CPU supports VT-d, disable it
        4. If your system has CFG-Lock, disable it
        5. If your system has Secure Boot Mode, disable it
        6. Set OS Type to Other OS
        7. If your system has IO SerialPort, disable it
        8. Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled
        9. If you have a 6 series or x58 system with AWARD BIOS, disable USB 3.0
        10. Save and exit.

      5. blankChris

        I will try, I have looked through the UEFI numerous times as I had difficulty with the legacy side of it. But will look again for these options (which I don’t remember seeing) if these are not in my UEFI then what can I do? Is there other ways to load maybe an older version I know I tried “trans something” and that wasn’t working either.

        Ps thanks for your time

      6. blankChris

        Would this be in all UEFI’s and bios regardless of what machine? Or is there cases where these options are not there.

    1. blankChris Reply

      Got it booting and ready to install but it is not finding my internal ssd.

      I have no option for ahci in my bios.

      Using dell 7275 help please

      1. blankFaiz Orz

        Hey, have you placed your system config.plist to your USB Installer? If you didn’t then do it because it will help your to boot without any issue.

  64. blankJan Novák Reply

    Hello, Faiz Orz,
    thanks for your tutorial, but I have a problem.
    When I finish installation (it tells me, that it’ll reboot in 10sec) then computer restarts and nothing has changed! It boots up the USB and I’m looking for installation like I’d be at the beginning. I can do this over and over again.
    What do I have to do please? 🙁
    Thanks, have a nice day!

      1. blankJan Novák

        First: Thank you for your time!!
        Second: Yea, that’s a problem. I can describe my work…
        1. I finish installation, restart PC
        2. It automatically boots me up into the CLOVER menu
        3. BUT I have here only these options: Boot Mac OS X from install macOS Sierra, Boot CLover from EFI, Boot windows from legacy HD 1, Boot windows from legacy HD , Boot windows from legacy HD 2 (yes, same again).
        So that’s it. I don’t have here any option to boot installed system (except windows on my SSD).

        Btw.: When I boot that drive, where I have installed MacOS directly from my computer bootmenu, there is: No System detected on this HD.

        What am I doing wrong? 🙁 thanks again for your help and time!

      2. blankJan Novák

        ok, nevermind, i solved it out. I just had to clean whole disk again and formate it.
        And I’m in OS NOW!!! Yeah!
        Now the hard part… nVidia GTX970 drivers and Realtek® ALC1150 codec drivers don’t work.
        I’m just sitting here and trying everything I see on the internet to get these fixed.
        Could we please communicate through e-mail, if you hava a time for me? I would be really happy, if I could get it 100% working.

      3. blankFaiz Orz

        Hello dear Jan Novak,
        First Let me know the following question then I can guess what’s wrong.
        Did you partition your Entire Disk or a single volume?
        If you partition the entire disk did you select the Schema GUID partition map?(Disk Utility)
        Also, how did you Create your USB Installer?
        From your Computer BIOS, the Sata Controller Must be set to “AHCI”

        Hi I too was facing this issue previously. I solved this by deleting the drive completely I mean it should not be an active partition keep it has unallocated drive. Previously I was using Ubuntu on that drive so to make it unalloacted I tried to install Windows OS and during Hard drive partition I have deleted the drive and cancelled the installation and then started installing MAC OS. Hope this helps you

      After you have extracted the Raw file then use Win32DiskImager to create and write macOS Sierra file to your USB. get from this video and follow step by step.
