my as rock deskmini stuck on booting after replace efi folder?

Revert the changes. Use the attached files in this forum only as a reference. Replacing the EFI folder is never a good idea. BTW My config.plist and acpi patches are for kabylake, not skylake. You have a sky lake CPU

I have compiled a very detailed guide to setting up an AsRock 110m Deskmini as a dual-boot machine. This guide is aimed at first time builders and assumes no prior experience. To my mind the Deskmini is the perfect small form-factor machine and is a more than worthy replacement for a Mac Mini. It is whisper quiet and has very low power consumption, making it the perfect (always on) home server, in these days of expensive electricity. Put an i5 or i7 6000 series CPU in there and the performance is really outstanding (Geekbench 4, single thread 4700; multi-thread 13,400, i5-6500). I have attached the setup guide which runs to over 20 pages. There is a lot of detail in there, since it assumes a first time builder with no detailed knowledge of the procedures. However, if followed carefully, it is not particularly difficult. I have not developed this procedure - it is simply a compilation of ideas from other, much more savvy users than I. My thanks to all who have assisted. Hopefully, I have acknowledged all such contributors in the guide. If not, the omission is unintentional. I have also attached a copy of my config.plist (with BoardID and Serial Numbers deleted). Given the fixed nature of the Deskmini's hardware, it would be great if some creative whiz could put all this together into an off-the shelf installation and setup tool. Good luck with your installs.

Excellent and detailed guide, I'd recommend everyone to read through this if you're planning to build a Hackmini.

I am helping a friend install on DeskMini 110 with
- i5-6500 Skylake
- 32GB DDR4-2400
- BIOS version 7.00
- UEFI Only Settings (Legacy was tried as well.)
- Sierra and Unibeast were downloaded yesterday 4/30/2017.

We have checked and rechecked the BIOS settings as discussed many times and only get to the row of pluses i.e. "+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++" during the Unibeast installation and nothing else. It never gets to the macOs installation menu.

Please, if anyone has any suggestions about what option might not be selected correctly please let us know.

P.S. I have installed Hackintoshes using TonyMacX86 and Unibeast many times and I am stumped on this one.

Did you try this first?
