Rehabman: Do you think No Sleep or Amphetamine would work to prevent sleep? Thanks.

I've used NoSleep with other hacks. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

I've read a lot about bluetooth in the guide and the comments, but I've never found a complete simple answer to the question of whether or not the system I install from following the guide will support bluetooth through a usb bluetooth adapter. I'm pretty sure if it did, I'd need to use a broadcom bluetooth usb adapter, but I don't know what extensions, if any, I would need to install and/or changes to the clover configuration I'd need to make.

I have a NUC6i7KYK.

Another simple question. I don't understand where to find the kexts to add to the installer.

I go to the links and find all of the source files, but cannot find any files like IntelMausiEthernet.kext

Where do I find these?

Thanks.

READ the README at each link (as suggested by the guide).

Thanks. I see it now. There are links to download repositories. I was looking for references to the files at the github list of files.

Thanks.

Rehabman: When my NUC goes to sleep overnight, the screen is suddenly on the Windows login screen. When I try to reboot Windows, it cannot see the Clover bootloader anymore. I can login to Sierra if I use Clover via the usb stick though. Without the USB stick, it just goes directly to the windows bootloader. In the bios, it only shows UEFI entries for windows bootloader or clover USB. Any idea whats up? Thanks.

Tried to install a default install of clover to the SSD but it just boots into Windows. No signs of Clover in the boot menu. My EFI folder looks the same to me so I'm not sure how Clover just disappeared :O.

It sounds like you did not follow the guide.
There are specific instructions regarding dual boot in post #2 of the laptop Clover guide.
You must set a boot entry specifically for Clover using efibootmgr in Linux.
You should not expect sleep to work (and other functions) when you're booting using the EFI/Clover from the USB.
