I suggest you create USB installation media and upgrade with that.
So in my case I just simply run the latests MultiBeast and reinstall the HD530 driver... As simple as that? Or it's better to reinstall all the kext and patch with the new MultiBeast?

It should be enough just to install HD530.
But there are still problems unsolved with HD530 & Sierra (artifacts etc.).

Hello gentelements, would like to ask you some info about VGA problem.
I have created bootable Sierra OSX into flash drive using Unibeast. I can see Clover bootloader and select boot flags with verbose. Everytime my monitor switches into no signal mode after OSX ~75% bar loaded. I can hear that my pc fans still spinning after monitor signal gone. Using DVI-HDMI cable. In flashdrive: \EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other i also uploaded AMD6000Controller.kext which was working fine in Yosemite with Chameleon bootloader.

Graphics card is: ATI HD6670 2gb. In config.plist i selected inject ATI.
Config.plist in spoiler.

I just did. Upgraded via USB and all my files are saved. Sound and WiFi are working fine without any modification.
The only problem I have is graphics. It looks like it doesn't recognize my graphics card. I've never had this kind of problem before. Booted with "-v, nv_disable=1, PCIRootUID=0, USBBusFix=Yes, rootless=0.

Installing HD530 driver with the new MultiBeast, gives me a KP again...
BTW, I changed the allocated memory from 32m to 64m, BOOM booted at 1 try, just the black glitch in the left corner. I don't know why this KP happening, on EL Capitan, i never had to change that parameter... Video kext is now running smoothly, and the system recognize my Dell ups 2k monitor via Display Port....
Thank you, your help was awesome
Time for me to install the RX 480, and start digging again... :)

I was using Unibeast and Sierra app which I downloaded from the AppStore.

I know there are some strange behaviour with some nvidia cards in Sierra.

I'm trying to Direct Update to Sierra. But I keep getting the foloowing error when I Boot macOS install

Sound assertion in AppleHDADriver at line 1098
iMac.local com.apple.xpc.launchhd[1] (org.ntp.sntp.134) Warning: Service exited with abnormal code:1
busy timeout[0] (240s) kextd wait (0): 'AppleACPICPU'

After 10 minutes it will got to a Apple loading screen with a Blue-grey bar with the beach ball o doom. Nothing will happen.
Any ideas?
