:thumbup: I will get back to you with the result.
Yes you will need to add those two parameters to your config.plist shown in number 3. This will disable SIP (System Integrity Protection) and allow 3rd party kexts to load. Well spotted:clap:
Thanks for everything man. Worked like a charm!! This method really worked for me with your help and suggestions!! Even the audio is working great!! I did not even need to install any additional drivers or kexts at all. Finally happy to have Sierra!! :clap::mrgreen::thumbup:

Hello guys,

I performed full backup using CCC and got one question and one stuck moment:

  • I changed boot in my uefi bios to boot from backup disk. Is that normal that I see my primary HDD icon as well in Clover even though I booted from different drive?
And stuck moment (kind a blocker at this point):
  • My KEXTS folder in my EFI folder is completely empty. I have mounted proper HDD (found in diskutil) but...nothing. What I do wrong please? Attaching screen.

Thank you!

Update it to latest version. If you delete this - BAM, you won't boot in your Hack anymore.

Installation went smooth for me, but I got ‘not enough free space’ when selecting my system disk. Then I went to Disk Utility and it seems that it's currently Not Mounted and has Zero KB's of available capacity. Help?

Edit: Now I tried booting back to capitan but I'm stuck at Sandbox: awacsd(349) deny(1) file-read-data

If you got any kexts related to cpu management - delete them
Thank you for your answer. I did opposite and copied Cpu management kext in EFI folder. Now i can boot further, but problem with video card left. After verbose -v finish loading, i hear my HDD spining but monitor says "No signal". Dont know how properly inject Ati Radeon HD6670

Well, I gave it a shot and could not get it to work. I got it to update then coundn't get it to not kernel panic. I then created a USB Sierra install drive. That worked but gave the same results. Then used it to restore El Capitan. Ill wait a while until I have a better understanding of everything.
