Hey guys, this is my first time building a hackintosh.
I have "successfully" installed Sierra yesterday, but most of my softs are more suited for Yosemite. Problem is I can't manage to get past that apple logo crash when I launch the Yosemite installer via the bootable USB. This is my setup :

Motherboard : Gigabyte Z170x-Ultra Gaming (BIOS f21)
CPU : Intel Skylake I7-6700K
Memory : Ballistix Sport LT RED (8GBx2)
Graphics : Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti - 2 Go

I believe it's a BIOS error, this is how I've set it up :


BIOS
->Bootup NumLock State->On
->Security Option->System
->Fast Boot->Disabled
->Windows 8/10 Features->Other OS
->LAN PXE Boot Option Rom->Disabled
->Storage Boot Option Control->UEFI
->Other PCI devices->UEFI
->Secure Boot->Systeme Mode Setup
Secure Boot Not Active
Vendor Keys Active
Attempt Secure Boot->Disabled

PERIPHERALS
->Initial Display Output->PCIe 1 Slot (GTX 750 Ti)
->Intel Platform Trust Technology (PTT)->Disabled
->Trusted Computing->Security Device Support->Enable
->Super IO Configuration->Serial Port->Disabled
->Intel(R) Bios Guard Technology->Intel Bios Guard Support->Disabled
->Network Stack Configuration->Network Stack->Disabled
->USB Configuration->Legacy USB Support->Enabled
XHCI Hand-off->Enabled
USB Mass Storage Driver Support->Enabled
Port 60/64 Emulation->Enabled
->SATA and RST Configuration->SATA Controller(s)->Enabled
SATA Mode Selection->AHCI
Aggressive LPM Support->Enabled

CHIPSET
->PCIEx4 Slot Link Width->Auto
->VT-d->Disabled
->Audio Controller->Enabled
->PCH LAN Controller->Enabled
->Wake on LAN Enable->Disabled
->High Precision Timer->Enabled
->IOAPIC 24-119 Entries->Disabled

Maybe a bootflag is the solution ? I can't find the right combinaison for my setup...
This is how verbose mode looks like right before it reboots :

There is no support for the 170 PCH in Yosemite. To run on SkyLake hardware you need 10.11.5 or later version Mac OS.

Please also update your personal details and fill in your hardware specs to get better support in the future.
Don´t forget SATA-100-unsupported.kext in EFI/Clover/kexts/other and HFSPlus.efi in driver64UEFI to see all drives and partitions.

Alright thank you I didn't know that.
I'm downloading 10.11.6.
