Just built my first Hackintosh ever (10.12.1), and couldn't be happier. Now I just need to find out how to stop it from instantly restarting 2 seconds after shutdown if there is anything connected via USB. I know I've seen other people on here dealing with this, I just can't find the right thread. Would anyone care to help me out?

Thanks!

I found my answer in another thread! If anyone else is having a similar issue:

Download Clover Configurator, then check the "Fix shutdown" box in the ACPI tab.

Sorry for the unnecessary thread.

Your USB configuration is clearly wrong. It appears you're using the port limit patch. It is for short term use only.
Create a custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext that keeps the number of ports on XHC under 15.
Read ammulder's Skylake Starter guide for a writeup.
