Success! Guide is easy enough to follow, but I did run into a snag after the first reboot. After the initial 5 minute Pre-install (when the installer creates all necessary files needed for the system and copy's them to your HD) and first reboot, I ended up booting back into EL Capitan. This is the first time in a long time I manually had to install the system without the aid of an app such as UniBeast so I was left wondering WTF! I restarted and noticed that there is a new option at the Clover splash screen called "Install macOS". I selected that and the installer continued as normal. 7 minutes later I was in Sierra!

Here are two tips that some might find useful.
1) I actually used an older version of Clover that was installed with UniBeast for El Capitan with no issues. No need to update or install the latest version. Use what is already working for your system.
2) Users who already use Clover can simply copy over your config file, DSDT/SSDT, and extension to the USB installer. No need to download anything recommended in the 1st post. Again, why mess with what already is known to work for you.
Keep in mind, this worked for my system, and YMMV.

Did you add HFS+EFI to 64efi drivers folder in clover, and remove the VBox hfs +EFI?
Also, adding nullcpumanagement and fakeSMCKexts to kext folders 10-11, and other?
These are required to boot in smoothly in most cases.

Another thing, is the right config.plist in the clover bootloader,a don does it match the old one.

Using osioaptofix2 is also causing problems, try reloading clover using OSXOptiFix not the 2 version.

These are a few of the common problems plaguing people with Sierra.

When i start clover it does not show my USB anywhere but it's visible in the BIOS. Any ideas?
I didn't change kext because i don't have any other then the one loaded when clover was installed.

I tried this exact method, and made it to the Utilities window (restore from time machine, disk utility, Install macOS etc) and Disk Utility works, but the installer never launches when I hit continue... Left it for hours... no USB activity, no feedback, no real useful errors in the Installer Log either :-/

Anyone have any ideas what the issue might be? (I have NOT disabled SIP yet!)

EDIT: I am using the Release version of Sierra :)
