    I have. The guide only specifies (in step 7) that you need USBInjectall.kext, apart from the kexts installed by UniBeast by default.
    However, USBInjectall.kext is already installed by UniBeast 6.2.0 in the specified folders, so I'm guessing the guide was written for an older version of UniBeast.

    Also, there's no mention of needing to add the HFSPlus.efi in the drivers64UEFI folder, which was needed with older versions of clover. I'm guessing its not needed anymore?

    Well, I still can't get OS X installer to run following the instructions in this guide.

    I would like someone with the same hardware to check if the clover EFI partition is built right.

    I am attaching the clover partition. This was generated by UniBeast 6.2.0, plus the config.plist from the guide.

    I hope that someone can try to boot the El Capitan installer using this Clover partition and let me know if it works or not. That would be a great help because I would then know if the problem is with clover or the hardware.

    Hi There, and thanks to all: for this guide an releases!!
    Its my first Hacki. I've tryed Sierra ... (Broadcom bcm94352z DW1560 -> wlan don't work, bluetooth ok (but system reboots), HD530 on Panasonic 4k with 1080p have to scale to see menus bar and top left menue bar with artefacts). So i decided to follow this instruction set here, and try it with el Capitan ... i strictly followed the complete instructions but with newest multibest823 in post1 -> success :)

    i've taken the newest MultiBeast 8.2.3 and replaced the config.plist with h170n-wifi-intel-config.plist as described in post1 ...

    Broadcom bcm94352z DW1560 with:
    Brom2016-0705 and FakePCIID 2017-0104 -> works ("rebooting" not completly checked yet ..)

    HD530, Geekbench4 Shows SKL Graphics, installed on top with multi beast HD530 -> Monitor up to 3840 x 2160 30hz :) @ my 4k Panasonic.

    to get my 2x8 Gb Ram (first it shows only 8Gb) i updated clover directly from clover configurator, reboot ... it works (Slot0 8gb, Slot 2 8gb). FaceTime,IMessage... just fine.

    Last thing which is buggy -> LAN Port under usb-c. Installed with Multibeast AppleGB v5.2.9.4. Connection will be lost, an if disconnect the cable -> directly reboot.

    lan port with IntelMausi v.2.1.0d0. works :)

    i'm happy, greetings from Germany

    @hean - thank you for sharing. I'm also a first timer with a H170N but cannot get the DW1560 to work (after some 10 attempts, both 10.11 with this guide and 10.12) and was getting close to desperate. This gives me inspiration to try again.

    Hello, could anybody tell if bluetooth on my mobo GA Z170N Gaming 5 would work at all with Sierra? At home we do not use wifi, so I dont really have the need to buy an extra card for both wifi and BT. I have been hours searching the forums but no concise info regarding the BT would work out of the box. I have two other builds at home using GA H97N-WIFI and BT works perfectly. Thanks a lot for your help!

    In order to troubleshoot a DW1560 card, I have already performed some 10 installations. I just did a test run with your files and it works like I would expect (and have seen before). I aborted the installation after the Welcome screen and did not do any post installation.

    Before you start the installation, please make sure that your machine boots from the USB drive.
    Hope this helps.

    I am also at a loss. I have built the exact machine per the above config. When I start the El Capitan install process, I get the Clover boot loader screen and it starts to install but it always stops halfway through and quits. I have removed the wifi card as someone suggested that but nothing changed. I have tried Sierra but I get a circle with slash when I begin the install process. I have a machine that works but I am unable to load the software.

    Any suggestions would be of great help...I have done this several times before with other machines and never had this problem.

    Thanks!
