I had kernel panic and no way to stop reboot on panic in options at boot time (option was unticked but still rebooting after panic).
I was lucky to take one clear picture, after a few attempts, and figure out it was the VoodooPs2Controller kext (laptop keyboard and mouse).
After testing multiple versions from this website, I had to install the latest version from RehabMan; https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-voodoo-ps2-controller/downloads/
Now Sierra is working fine.
Next step, get the Nvidia mezzanine (shared with Intel graphics) card works (possible?).
Thank you again for your great job. Fantastic to have a working Mac on a 2012 laptop PC.

I'm planning to do this and I'm doing a Carbon Copy Clone of my hard drive first. Do I need to do a copy of the EFI partition as well in case the upgrade fails?

IIRC, the newer versions of CCC do copy the EFI partition. But, I'm not sure. Try it. If it doesn't copy the EFI partition, mount both EFI partitions and copy the /EFI/ from the installation drive to the backup drive's EFI partition. No big deal.

I'm trying to install. When I click restart on the installation program, an extra HD in clover with Macos install doesn't show up.
What to do about that?

I'm trying to do a clean reinstall of macOS Sierra on my already set-up CustoMac. I lost my existing UniBeast flash drive, so do I use this method with a standard Sierra install flash drive or do I make a new UniBeast drive? Thanks!
