Yeah here https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.200564/
My computer was made with what's below and is stuck in a restart loop from an update. I cannot even get it to start fresh from my Installer USB stick, after which I could restore from my lasted backup. It's step three of the install of El Capitan where it gets stuck and the apple logo changes to a circle with a cross through it. Any ideas what I should do or what might be wrong? The only problems I had with the machine was sleep mode and it was only registering 16GB of RAM, which I didn't get around to fixing.

@AustinLarger, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard or Make/Model, CPU and Graphics Card.
It was listed in the post... and has since been added to my personal details. Any actual assistance would be very helpful.
hi everybody, can someone write a new guide for the future High Sierra, when it will be release, using the same hw parts of this guide?.
The rules require that your system specs are in your profile not some random place of your own choosing.
This way you only have to enter them once and everyone can find them without searching this whole thread and any subsequent ones.
Followed this guide quite successfully to get El Capitan and then Sierra up an running on my build. Tried a clean install with High Sierra today following a mix of this guide and the tonymacx86 High Sierra bootable USB guide. One word: don't. LOL.

Can you write the procedure? With High Sierra did you notice something don’t go? Audio, video, ecc...or is all ok?
Today I mistakenly tried to install a pending App store security update for El Capitan on my H170-WIFI i3-6100 HD530 customac mini hackintosh. It's been working fine for years now but after the install, which required a restart, the machine got stuck in a boot loop. Almost immediately after the Clover boot screen the Apple boot logo displays and then the machine restarts. I added verbose mode to the Clover boot options and it gave no useful information since the reboot happens so quickly. The text on the screen was this:
OsxAptioFix2Drv: Starting overrides for \System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
Using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no
Then the box reboots and its repeats over and over again.
I have tried a number of different Clover boot options and I have tried booting from a really old USB thumb drive which I think was the one I originally used to do the build years ago. But it seemed to hang with the boot progress bar at around 75% or so.
Any pointers for how to fix this? It was a recent security update. I think I was running 10.11.6.
Just tried the Sierra install and now trying to boot to hard drive and it is stuck at about 2/3 in the apple logo.
