OK, so after too many hours of failing i need some help.

this is my Hardware:
MoBO - ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer LGA 2011v3
CPU - Intel Core i7-5820K, 6 cores
graphic - MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6GB


I have managed to make an USB using UniBeast with sierra.
I cant open Config.plist so have not done anything more than just making a sucessfull bootable stick.
So do i need to do anything more on the bootable usb?

i have gotten into UEFI/BIOS mode on my PC. howerer i cant fint ANY of the recomended bios settings. as: OS Type. or the Vt-d. And those i can find have the correct settings by default.
Are there something in the BIOS settings i need to change?

I have allso managed to boot from the usb, and try to mount the OS sierra installer. I then see a apple logo! with a progressbar. the progressbar does nothing, and after like 1 minute the pc shuts down black.

so..
could someone help with the settings i need for the usb, and the bios settings.
are my hardware even capable of becoming a hackintosh?


please help! i really need it :)
