Hey Guys!

Firstly i'd like to thank this forum for even existing.

Secondly the situation...

I've successfully built 4 Hackintosh for Music Production.

The problem is with a Gigabyte z170 gaming 7
The Build was working perfectly smooth for a long time then it just died.

first the windows side stopped booting (I think the owner did a startup recovery when the clover USB was disconnected and ruined the windows boot sector) This wasn't a big issue

The mac side continued to run for about a month then one day the board wouldn't post. It would just a do a boot loop. We reset the cmos and bios. It worked for a bit. I configured the Bios as it was before then Mac would get stuck at the fully loaded apple logo. The motherboard then died and wouldn't post. Tried everything. took out all the Hard Drive, memory stick, check for bent pins. nothing worked.

We ordered the new board and it came in on the 3rd day.

after hours of taking the thing apart. It boots and we set the bios the same as this guide...

Always gets stuck at the fully loaded apple logo
even with -v
nv_disable

I've Attached the EFI and boot screen on -v

Here are the specs of the Build (not my build its a friend)

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z170x-Gaming 7
CPU: Intel Skylake i7 6700 OC @4.6ghz
Graphic card: EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 750ti
RAM: G.SKILL Aegis 16GB x2


The sooner we can get this up the better! He needs it to finish his album!

"Waiting for DSMOS" without a corresponding "DSMOS has arrived" implies that FakeSMC.kext is missing or not loaded.
FakeSMC.kext should be in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/.

If you are going to be using APFS then you should add apfs.efi to /EFI/CLOVER/Drivers64UEFI/.
Also in /EFI/CLOVER/Drivers64UEFI/ AptioMemoryFix.efi is preferable to OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi.

Try this config.plist :
