the kexts are all in /Library/Extensions. So I need to move them to Clover?

Move your hackintosh kexts to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/, then enable SIP and kext injection in your config.plist. Done.

I moved the kexts, enabled SIP which also says enabled in terminal and it still getting stuck on boot loop. I went back to the previous post and followed the recovery procedure and still doesn't work. Any further advice? Is it worth re-installing?

Enabling SIP will prevent something like this from happening.

If you've already been hit, then you still need to go through the repair procedures.

Thank you. I managed to enable SIP, but still couldn't repair so I re-installed OS and it's loading ok now but just need to fix the graphics. Fun times... Thank you so much for your help

Between these two you must rebuild cache.
Code:
sudo kextcache -i /
Thanks mate, I couldn't repair the VAR so I re-installed the OS. It's at least booting now, but the graphics is using default instead of nvidia patch. I tried to cache the kext but I'm not sure what I'm looking at and so not sure if it worked or not. Either way I'll go back over the steps to fix the graphics. Thanks for your time. It's been a long day

Can I please get your advice one last time to get the audio working.

I ended up re-installing OS the stop the boot loop which is working well. SIP is enabled and I moved the Hakintosh Kext to Kext/Other folder. I then did a sudo kextcache -I / . The Nvidia graphic card wasn't being detected, so I moved the kext back to extension which fixed the issue, but audio's not working, which I've tried in both locations and nothing worked. Would you mind looking over the folders please to make sure I have the kext in the right locations and clover setting correct, and if you have any solution for audio, that would be amazing. Thanks for your time.

To enable SIP - changed to 0x00
