Hi, I'm trying to do a fresh install of MacOS Sierra in my first and new rig for video editing. I'll give you the specs

GIGABYTE GA-Z270XP-SLI
i7 7700K
EVGA GTX 1060 ACX 2.0 6GB
32 GB of Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 2133 MHz RAM
240 GB SanDisk SSD PLUS
3 TB Seagate Barracuda HDD
Corsair H100i v.2 AIO Cooler

I made a bootable USB flash drive with Unibeast and added Multibeast too. I made the changes recommended in the installation guide:

Disabled VT-d
Disabled Serial Port in Super IO Configuration
Enable XHCI Hand-off
Changed XMP Profile to Profile 1

I tried to locate the CFG-lock option, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Afterwards, I saved changes and reboot it. In the reboot I selected 'Boot macOS from USB' and a plain black screen with a white Apple logo in the middle of the screen appears, but it doesn't happen something at all. No loading bar, nothing. Just a plain screen with an Apple logo.
What can I do to pass that screen?

Note:
I'm outputting display from the GTX 1060 because I don't have and HDMI cable to output from internal graphics. I don't know if that has something to do with it.

Boot your system in Verbose Mode and post a picture of your screen when it freezes/hangs.
At Clover Boot Screen press space bar and select Verbose (-v)

If you have a prebuilt computer or laptop enter make and model instead of motherboard.
