I think you should remove SSDT-2.aml from EFI/CLOVER/PATCHED - it is intended to be used with other Wi-Fi card. That worked for me. You may also remove all entries related to AirportBRCM4360 in Kernel&KextPatches section of the config.plist even though that isn't necessary to prevent the kernel panics.
I removed SSDT-2.aml and the related config.plist changes, it worked!

Thank you for your help.

As a side note for anyone who got to the bootloader but didn't see their external HDD, add the HFSPlus.efi file to your kexts directory. HFSPlus.efi isn't just for USB Sticks, but also for USB external drives. :)

Geekbench can be useful in this case ...
You can try with this :

EDIT: IT DOESN'T WORK !!!

Code:
<key>SMBIOS</key>
    <dict>
        <key>BiosVendor</key>
        <string>Apple Computer, Inc.</string>
        <key>BiosVersion</key>

Hi everyone, hi @Sebinouse, thank you all for your valuable tips on making this NUC work.
Today, after experimenting with the original Clover configuration/files provided in post #1, I updated to latest Clover v3543 and tested Macmini7,1 as SMBIOS (manually entered data in config.plist). I rebooted and the device seems to book OK (booted without caches, first) and had no visible warnings in verbose boot.

What is used was slightly different to @Sebinouse, namely the below, from user Quadie at insanely:

Code:
<key>SMBIOS</key>
<dict>
       <key>BiosReleaseDate</key>
       <string>12/04/2014</string>
       <key>BiosVendor</key>
       <string>Apple Inc.</string>
       <key>BiosVersion</key>
       <string>MM71.88Z.0220.B01.1412041041</string>
       <key>Board-ID</key>
       <string>Mac-35C5E08120C7EEAF</string>
       <key>BoardManufacturer</key>
       <string>Apple Inc.</string>
       <key>BoardType</key>
       <integer>10</integer>
       <key>ChassisAssetTag</key>
       <string>Mini-Aluminum</string>
       <key>ChassisManufacturer</key>
       <string>Apple Inc.</string>
       <key>ChassisType</key>
       <string>16</string>
       <key>Family</key>
       <string>Mac mini</string>
       <key>Manufacturer</key>
       <string>Apple Inc.</string>
       <key>ProductName</key>
       <string>Macmini7,1</string>
       <key>SerialNumber</key>
       <string>RM2N####GCVQ</string>
       <key>Version</key>
       <string>1.0</string>
</dict>
I am running Intel's Power Gadget and it seems the CPU stepping to work, frequency goes from 1.20GHz to 2.30GHz when running Geekbench. The results of Geekbench (v3.3.4) 64-bit mode were slightly lower than those when SMBIOS was set to MacBook Air, but still 5309 are OK compared to 5494 earlier. Temperature (per Intel's Gadget) seems a little higher, too, when idle. Running latest 10.10.5 and all updates.

I am still using original SSDT.aml and SSDT-1.aml provided by @minihack (many thanks again!!!) without SSDT-2.aml as I am using Atheros AR9280 PCIe that's working OOB.

The only issue I'd like to report is:
1) How to generate proper serial for Macmini7,1? Clover Configurator doesn't include it.
2) @Sebinouse why you wrote that it didn't work? (few months back, of course)
3) Anyone else re-tried it to set (manually set SMBIOS inside config.plist)
4) In verbose boot, I got X86PlatformShim::SendPStates - Success! but I also see some other message like com_intel_driver_EnergyDriver[0xffffff8025b78f00]::start(0xffffff8023a30b00) that I don't think I had earlier.

Your comments are welcome! Thank you again everyone for your assistance in previous pages.

EDIT: My NUC is D54250WYKH with latest BIOS v0041

1) you only need to add random characters instead of # in the serial you mention in your post.... approximately !
RM2N####GCVQ
RM2 : location of manufacture (RM2 : Remanufactured model ...)
N#: year and week of manufacture (N8 means 52th week of 2014 according CloverConfigurator iMac15,1)
###: random characters (LD8 for instance)
GCVQ: mac model (MM7,1)

2) it didn't work at the very beginning of MM7,1. Maybe it was sold with a special version of MacOSX. It worked at the next update.

3) yep, and it works great !

4)I don't have those on my log ...
