Problem: First boot on a new hackintosh - attempting to install Sierra. Boot stalls after AppleNVMe Assert Failed line.

System is in my profile - note that I have not yet installed the GPU - I'm using onboard graphics for now to get the install done. I'm wanting to do the install on the SATA SSD, NOT the M.2 NVMe SSD (which I'm intending to use for Windows boot only).

Is there something I'm missing to turn off NVMe stuff in clover? Attached screen shots of boot screen and zipped clover sans themes. Appreciate any tips while I stumble along!

Thanks
Ed

For the freeze on the line with AppleUSBLegacyRoot:
At Clover Boot Screen select Options > PCI devices > USB Ownership and USB Injection

For permanent solution check Inject USB + FixOwnership in Clovers config.plist
Code:
  <key>USB</key>
        <dict>
            <key>FixOwnership</key>
            <true/>
            <key>Inject</key>
            <true/>
        </dict>
