MB: MSI Z170A Gaming M5
CPU: 3.7 GHz Intel Core i3 (Skylake)
Graphics: EVGA GeForce 760
Wifi: TP-Link T9E


Files needed:
UniBeast
MultiBeast Sierra Edition
Clover Configurator
KextBeast
Nvidia web driver (WebDriver-367.15.10.15f03)
Audio Kext Enabler Master (HDAEnabler1 kext)
OSxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi


The Process:
1. Follow the guide to create your boot USB and install macOS with the latest version of UniBeast (don’t select Nvidia).

2. Copy MultiBeast, Clover Configurator, KextBeast, WebDriver and HDAEnabler1 kext to your USB or somewhere easily accessible from your new mac.

3. Follow the instructions here to setup BIOS and install.

4. After reboot, setup and sign in to your Apple account (the wifi works OOB).

5. In Post install, DO NOT change the System Definition. Leave as default 14,2.

6. Select Build and install to your macOS drive. When complete, close MultiBeast.

7. Move your HDAEnabler1 kext to desktop and install using KextBeast (I installed to both locations).

8. Install Nvidia Web Driver, when complete DO NOT RESTART your computer yet.

9. On your new macOS menu bar, select Go, then Computer.

10. In the EFI>CLOVER>drivers64UEFI folder, replace OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi with OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi

11. In the CLOVER folder, double click on config.plist which will open Clover Configurator

12. In "RtVariables", make sure that BooterConfig is "0x28" and CsrActiveConfig is "0x67"

13. In Graphics, remove checkmark from Inject Intel

14. In SYMBIOS, select the wand, choose 14,2 in the Product Name and shake, shake to randomise your system numbers.

15. In System Parameters, make sure NvidiaWeb and Inject System ID are checked.

16. Save and exit CC.

17. Restart the computer, hold DEL to enter the BIOS, and set your macOS drive as primary boot disk.

18. Save and reboot and you should automatically boot into your macOS.

Extra:

If you can't sign into the App Store, go to System Preferences > Network and delete all connections.

Then go to Library > Preferences > SystemConfiguration folder and delete NetworkInterfaces.plist and preferences.plist (backup first).

Restart computer, connect to wifi network and attempt to log in again.

The GTX 760 should work out of the box with full acceleration with native drivers and NO injection.

If you use the Nvidia Web Driver you need to setup emulated NVRAM to store the nvda_drv=1 boot flag in boot-args.

It never worked for me out of the box. I had to set nvda_drv=1 boot flag to get it to boot.
