So I am following this guide https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/clover-basics-and-switching-advice.171680/ and this guide https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/clover-basics-and-switching-advice.171680/ to see a create a test USB for Clover for my Dell XPS 13 9350 (i7-6560u). So I think I did everything right. Downloading macOS from the App Store. Using UniBeast to create my USB and then I plugged into my dell with a brand new m.2 ssd that I was planning on using for macOS. But my laptop is not seeing the USB drive and just goes into this tool to check that nothing is broken. Did I do something wrong or is there something more I need to do to make my USB bootable. Thanks

thank you. I have just created my bootable USB and tried to boot off it. I can get into Clover Bootloader and I clicked on the Boot OS X Install from Install macOS Sierra. I get the black screen with the apple logo but after about 25 seconds, I get a no-symbol. Looks like this:


In case this is relevant:
I'm using a USB 2.0 Drive and both USB ports on the laptop are USB 3.0 that has a 16gb capacity
I'm in UEFI mode
I partitioned the drive with a MBR with a FAT32 partition
Here is what my EFI/CLOVER folder looks like:

OK. I did that and my laptop has have the apple logo on the black screen when I first boot off the USB or about 10 minutes now. Should I wait longer or is there something I should do?
