Ah man this is so frustrating. so I have done this;
Backed up El Cap to other HD along with EFI
Updated Clover and Clover configurator
Put fakesmc.kext into other folder on EFI partition (not the back up)
Booting in verbose, Inject Kexts, Disable Nvidia, Web driver ticked.

When I go to install Sierra and run the boot from clover all I get verbose is a bunch of plus signs and then hangs......

Help me obi wan Kenobi :(


EDIT

Fixed, followed these instructions;

@livingJAZZ, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard, CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card.
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard.
