The system was running perfect. But I wanted to do a fresh install vs. uninstalling a lot of apps I didn't use anymore. STOOPID!!

Okay, what hangs is the Blue Tooth, I get BSSID stuff. I cannot remember what Kexts to delete and where.

SYSTEM Definition:
CPU: i5-4590
MOB: Asus Z97-A with Thunderbolt Card.....NOT a usb 3.1 model board
DDR: Crucial Ballistic 24 GB
GPU: intel 4600 ( off the i5 )
wifi/BT -- that unit that you buy off eBay, it plugs the wifi through pic-e and the bluetoof ( yeah bluetoof ) off usb

so I don't use a third party gpu

Problems:
I can't use multibeast to install anything, not even an audio kext...the system hangs at boot. I can't use clover / clover configurator. And this is how I did it before!!! Using configurator to mount refi and adding kexts to the 10.12 or 1.11 folders.

So right now I have to have the USB stick in and I cannot update Sierra, nor add any kext. Otherwise Start all over.

HELP!!!

UPDATE for further explanation:

1. mount EFI ( clover config )
2. Install fakesmc and cpunull in 10.12 folder
3.......reboot hangs..the bar under the apple logo stops half way and I get the fun of starting over.

4. This method worked before. Is the newest fakesmc crap? How would these two kexts make the bluetooth go ape crap?

Here's a screenshot where the boot hangs if I do anything.
