However, still not Wifi? I have the AzureWave Broadcom BCM94352HMB 802.11/ac/867Mbps WLAN + BT4.0 Half Mini PCI-E card - which worked perfectly before.
Did you at least skim through my post above yours?

Anyway, in reading other posts, it looks like the key change to get WiFi working again on mine, was the fcvo kextpatch. Not sure about all the other things I had thrown in there.... See "Common Problems in 10.12 Sierra"... https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/readme-common-some-unsolved-problems-in-10-12-sierra.202316/

Still one issue to solve....seems to be mouse related..if I scroll at just the wrong moment, the system freezes solid. Have to power cycle to get life back. (made sure I had latest Logitech drivers, since it claimed Siera fixes...have also tried without the Logitech drivers...) Oh well....perhaps getting a new mouse will solve things :p

Well because i'm interested in a non-humming ALC283 i did the following :

1) extracted a fresh appleHDA.kext with Pacifist from the Sierra installer and replace the existing S/L/E/appleHDA.kext with it
2) downloaded "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.command" from the link above
3) run the commandfile with answers: 283, inject, 1
4) remove appleACL from Clover & reboot.

Result: non-humming Sound !!! :) on my birthday
thanks fluffhead

It's a pity the AppleALC method is humming, I like the Clover-approach better then the patching.
But i tried v. 1.0.8 1.0.9 & 1.1.0: all result in buzzing sound..
thx, help me a lot

Works perfect! CloverALC can be download here: https://github.com/toleda/audio_CloverALC
No AppleALC found, did nothing for it.
When "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.command" run, care of config.plist changed and "
realtekALC.kext" generated under kext.

Any brave man/woman tried to install High Sierra yet?
I'm looking forward to rebuild my D34010WYK and use it, but there's the new filesystem and always some specific kext updates.

I've followed the guide in the first post and have a booting system but no sound output device. It is unclear to me how to enable it. I've had El Capitan working with sound previously. Sierra has been installed on a blank drive. I'm using HDMI but could switch to DP if necessary.

The guide says to ''look for AppleALC.kext and forget about what is coming next" but I haven't been able to make use of that instruction.

I've tried the below but get permission errors.
1) extracted a fresh appleHDA.kext with Pacifist from the Sierra installer and replace the existing S/L/E/appleHDA.kext with it
2) downloaded "audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.command" from the link above
3) run the commandfile with answers: 283, inject, 1
4) remove appleACL from Clover & reboot.
I replaced the existing S/L/E/appleHDA.kext in the Sierra installation with the one extracted from the Sierra installer. After that I ran audio_cloverALC-130_v0.3.command. No sound on reboot. What could be the reason for the permission errors?

EDIT: Fixed by reextracting appleHDA.kext and not using a FAT-formated media as intermediary.

I'm running High Sierra right now. I've done an upgrade from Sierra. Just don't forget to put apfs.efi in your clover drivers ;)
For audio, just use audio_cloverALC-130.sh from around.
All is running well except that the Arabesque screensaver is buggy and laggy.

Thanks ethermcman. In my case I’ll start from scratch with high Sierra. Can I follow the same steps of the Sierra install and just add the kexts you mentioned?
What about that new EFI check in High Sierra, is it a problem?

Salut Sebinouse, hello everyone, thank you all for your valuable comments and feedback! I have a couple of questions after successfully setting up my Intel D54250WYKH NUK with vanilla Sierra 10.12.6 (2x4GB RAM, Samsung 128GB m2.SSD and 500GB SATA SSD). The BIOS was updated to v45 from Intel and set properly; the PCI-card for WLAN is Atheros AR9280 (from eBay) for OOB use with minor device-id tweaking via Clover.

After creating the setup USB drive and installing Sierra 10.12.6 directly, I installed only the following kexts in /Library/Extensions/
a) Latest FakeSCM (v1426) and plugins (from www.hwsensors.com but now only at www.github.com/kozlek/HWSensors)
b) Latest AppleALC v1.1.4 and Lilu 1.1.7 (set layout-id as 0x01 in SSDT-HDEF.aml)
c) IntelMausiEthernet driver for LAN (v2.3.0)
d) IntelGraphicsFixup v1.1.7 (just today!)

Thanks Sebinouse for pointing out the "IntelGraphicsFixup.kext" solution some pages ago, I must have missed that one out, I also had Safari freezing over some pages with embedded video and wasn't sure what was causing it; hope this is fixed now forever.

1) Any idea if we still need to use SSDT-HACK.aml file with BIOS v45 now? What is the region fix exactly? (mentioned in first post)

2) For native detection of IGPU, I am using ig-platform-id of {0x03, 0x00, 0x22, 0x0D} for some reason, but I see you are using {0x0D, 0x00, 0x26, 0x0A} instead; any preference or reason to choose the correct one? I could not find more info on the differences... originally I thought this was the reason for the Safari-freeze...

3) Compared to other threads where there is huge talk about USB ports and compatibility and patching etc. (I have no experience and no idea how to resolve) I see that nobody really dealt with USB ports and fixing for this NUC; am I correct in assuming that we don't need such solution i.e. all ports on this NUC work 100% OK without any sort of injection or patching? (e.g. FakePCIID.kext by RehabMan that I see is widely used)

I enabled the FixShutdown_0004 in Clover as you suggested Sebinouse, as the NUC wouldn't shutdown completely if I left some USB drives attached; but now I have the wireless Logitech M175 mouse freezing when moving :(

4) Anyone has tried for a long time the FakeSMC branch of RehabMan instead of Kozlek's known branch?

Thanks in advance to everyone, once more.

Hi,
I performed upgrade from sierra (10.12.6) to high sierra 10.13 and everythings appear good except for HDMI audio.
I tried followed methods:
1) vit9696 (lilu + applealc)
2) toleda patch (audio_cloverHDMI-130.command)
3) voodoohda (2.8.8)
but my system stays muted.
Any suggestion is welcome.
Many thanks.

You can follow the Sierra's steps from Sebinouse. Just delete SSDT-HDEF.aml, put apfs.efi in clover drivers and run udio_cloverALC-130.sh.
I don't use HDMI or DisplayPort sound so I've not tried to check if it's working or not.
