What should I change in the bios, to recognize the usb sierra?

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide".
Here is a direct link, just to be clear:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing. Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.

Has anyone installed Sierra onto the Lenovo Flex 5 series laptop. It's a touchpad with Windows 10 native, and your choice is i3 or i5 or i7 CPU (on 7 series / generation intel CPU's). I don't care about the touch screen capabilities in OSX, but maybe some day those high priced Apple people may incrporate this (should for what you're payin'). I would like all the USB ports to work, if it has USB-C a working port, working HDMI, working card reader and absolutely has to have the sound & GPU working. I may consider a dual boot as well. That part would be easy if you have the right bios and can get into it I bet.

Rehabman, quote from Ghost Busters. "Are you a God"?

Amazing posts and I wonder if I'll ever be able to pick this up. Maybe I'll have time after this class is over to dive into this. Hope so as I just ordered up a bunch of computer parts to make my build.
I was reading the other night where NVMe SSD is supposed to be part of High Sierra. I ordered the 960 with that in mind but I'm wondering how I will be able to use it if I need to load El Capitan to the system but the NVMe SSD isn't supported? I'll dig into that after vacation back to the US, parts arrive, planets align...all that good stuff. The laptop in my profile is my primary system so not sure if I really want to jack with it or not.

Ordered 2 Mac Mini's (2010 w/optical and then late 2012 i7 quad core 2.6) and if those work as promised then I'll have access to E.C. Figured what the heck, I can play with the OS until I do the build. Rambling on is all. Good stuff here, thanks.

Hi, I have Chuwi Lapbook 12.3 with Intel Apollo Lake Celeron N3450, Intel Graphics HD500. Any expectations for future compatibility?

No.
Apple does not use Celeron hardware.
