    I'm new to hackintosh installs but I followed the guide on installing Sierra to the letter. I must have done 5-10 different installs trying to get this to work. I found that MultiBeast 9.2 installation completed after I mounted the EFI drive with Clover. After installation completed the ethernet network & sound didn't work. I had to copy the RealtekRTL8111.kext & VoodooHDA.kext manually

    from | /Library/Extensions/
    to | EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12

    Then the network and sound started working. But I still have a bunch of .kext files sitting in /Library/Extensions/ folder. Here's a list

    ➜ Extensions ls
    ACS6x.kext FakePCIID.kext HighPointIOP.kext
    AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext HighPointRR.kext
    AHCI_Intel_Generic_SATA.kext FakeSMC.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
    ATTOCelerityFC8.kext FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext PromiseSTEX.kext
    ATTOExpressSASHBA2.kext FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext
    ATTOExpressSASRAID2.kext FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext SoftRAID.kext
    ArcMSR.kext FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext VoodooHDA.kext
    CalDigitHDProDrv.kext GenericUSBXHCI.kext
    ➜ Extensions pwd
    /Library/Extensions

    • Is this expected?
    • Should I copy these kext files manually to EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12 folder?

    System this is installed on
    • Core i7 3770
    • GTX 660
    • ASRock B75M-ITX
      • Realtek ALC892 Audio Codec
      • Realtek RTL8111E LAN

    Did you read the descriptions in MultiBeast or the pdf before running it?

    I took at look at it more closely again and see what you're saying. So it's expected to install in /Library/Extensions. Is having to copy to EFI volume to get those things working also expected or should the sound/networking work from /Library/Extensions?
