    OK, I managed to get a Fusion drive working with a 250 GB m2 SATA drive and a 2 TB Samsung 2.5" notebook drive. However, I seem to have some graphics issues with sluggish performance and changes in Safari tabs' gray shades, and I have lost sound. There is no output option in my Sound Control Panel (I'm connected to a 27" Philips display via miniDisplayPort). Any idea what might be the cause of these? Otherwise, I'm very happy with my 2.25 TB fusion drive!

    FANSTASTIC guide nice work I would like to add some fixes I had to do to get my NUC5i3 100% working

    1.No 4k 60hz resolution using a mini dp to hdmi 2.0 active adaptor to get 3840 X 2160 with 60hz output
    Use switchresx utility add new custom resolution3840 X 2160 with clock set at 59.95 Mhz

    2.No sound through display port adaptor
    Goto Audio midi setup app, select displayport set sound format to 48000.0HZ 2ch-16bit-integer

    Anyone else lose bluetooth in the latest update (10.12.2)?

    Mine disappeared entirely, "No Bluetooth hardware found"

    I'm having several problems with 10.12.2, but they are all now clover related. My original problem was improper sleep/hibernate recovery, and I ended up breaking Clover in the process of trying to fix that. When I can get it to actually boot, my bluetooth still works fine.

    Is there an updated guide for clover with a 5i5RYH board with 10.12?

    Hi - thinking of dipping my toe in an install for an Intel NUC (Broadwell: This one to be more specific) http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/nuc/nuc-kit-nuc5i5ryk.html

    but not sure how into the weeds I may get....Is this is a difficult install? I'm familiar with PC and MAC OS install/rebuilds...just rather not spend too much time if possible (I guess I'll find out anyway hah...)

    also, I was looking for a MAC Sierra specific install, but didn't seem to find one... My main purpose is to run Plex, but I'd like to run it with an Apple TV 4 remote to get 5.1/7.1 audio from MKV blu-ray encodes. Apple TV 4 doesn't seem to be up to the task..

    Just want to share, that I installed macOS Sierra by this guide to NUC NUC5i7RYH with BIOS version 0362 and everything worked (except WiFi, Bluetooth and connection to my iPhone but I will look into that later)

    Sorry if offtopic but i didnt find appropriate topic to post that into :)

    I've just connected a pair of JBL external speakers through the audio port of my NUC i5 and now I have audio popping. Any fixes for this?

    Thanks for the great guide.
    I've managed to get ethernet and sound working fine just by injecting using Multicast.

    But If I follow the rest of the instructions I'm ending up with a computer that kernel panics (looks like it, it reboots quite quickly)

    Has the guide been updated since 10.11.6 was released? I'm not sure if I still should replace the .EFI file and use the same SSDTs / plist?

    I'm on a i3 NUC so I've used the generic SSDT and just done the basic Clover Config changes (Updated to 14.1 iMAC)

    Sorry If I've have not tried hard enough to find a solution but It's hard to scroll trough 81 pages of text :(

    EDIT: Looks like i jumped a bit early here - Managed tor record a movie of my NUC booting and discovered that the graphics driver crashed.. So I looked in BIOS and the Video Memory settings was changed from what was suggested. Changed back and rebooted and now everything works fine!! :)

    Having my first mackintosh is sweet :) Coming from two MacPro's who costed a fortune :) 4k Video (Running 3440x1440@50HZ) is working and I'm only using the i3 proc and 8G ram.

    The only hiccup so far would be the Youtube HTML5 player that never gets "on focus" when you hover, you need to click on the movie making it pause..
