Hello Everyone i own an Alienware 15r2 i7-6700hq, nvidia 970m 3gb and a 4k panel.
I struggled very hard to install Sierra but couldnt do it with any luck.
I would like to give this another try and maybe somebody can help me this time and probably somebody has already done this who can assist others.
Kindly let me know how to proceed.

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide".
Here is a direct link, just to be clear:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing. Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html
The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ:
"Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"

Thanks for the reply Rehabman,
So i have tried from the start in the past.
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...tan-install-mac-sierra-success.183018/page-51
from page 51-57 is my history.
I finally got stuck on the black screen problem and didnt find a solution till date.
How do i avoid it this time?
Also has anybody else who has a 4k panel got this to work?
Kindly let me know.
Thanks & Regards.
As per post #2, follow the guide. Carefully.
If you run into an issue, attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.
