I am trying for the past 2 days to install macOS Sierra on my PC but no matter what, I get kernel panic when I try to launch the installer.

This is my CLOVER folder: Clover.zip
This is my: config.plist
The boot Args are: -v dart=0 npci=0x2000 nv_disable=1 kext-dev-mode=1
No graphics injectors.

BIOS version 3.1 (latest and modded to boot from nvme ssd.)

BIOS SETTINGS:
XHCI Hand-off = ENABLED
EHCI Hand-off = DISABLED
Configure SATA as = AHCI
Intel Virtualization Technology = ENABLED
Intel VT for Directed I/O (VT-d) = DISABLED
Secure Boot = DISABLED

Serial ports (SuperIO) should be disabled in your BIOS settings.

No need for sensors while you are installing the OS.

kext-dev-mode=1 not required.
Your config.plist has a lot of unnecessary / incorrect ACPI fixes enabled.

Unfortunately, I don't have an option in my BIOS to disable SuperIO or I don't seem to figure out where it is..

I have rebuilt the USB installer with Unibeast from this guide here and now I am getting this:
gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
New clover folder: CLOVER
New config: config.plist
Boot Args: -v dart=0 nv_disable=1 npci=0x2000

Did you try "South Bridge"?

The only way to get it installed is to temporarily replace your video card with another nvidia (in my case gtx 970). This will let you display the installation process. After you have the system installed, you have to install also nvdia webdrivers, put the boot arg nvda_drv=1 in clover configurator, shutdown and replace the video card with your gtx 1080. It will boot just fine and you can go ahead and configure your system normally.
