    ok i'm gonna try and will tell you how it goes. What do you think about agpfix for my driver issue for the nvidia graphic board, because it is mentionned that the imac 17,1 has some issue without it...
    Thanks again for your help.

    Never used it or the iMac17,1 SysDef. I recommend you read pastrychef's build description; toward the end, he compares the 14,2 vs. 17,1.

    Hi there,
    i am new to the Hackintosh - scene, but was so impressed by the built, i bought all the Parts you did (plus a NVMe - SSD). I followed all the steps as you wrote in your amazing article and then - bummer as you can see in the picture.

    Maybe i missed something - Windows10 is working, so the hardware should be ok.

    Would be nice to hear from you.

    See my Gene build description if you are trying to install Sierra on the NVMe SSD.

    Yes, you should. How did you create your UniBeast USB Installer thumb drive? On a Hackintosh? On a Mac?

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I created the Unibeast installer from a original iMac.

    Now i think i tried nearly everything. I disconnected all hard drives except m.2 - did not work. I tried with your Gene - plist and with the original. Tried to deactivate the USB-Ports, (also tried Chamäleon), inserted SSTD, tried another FAKESMC.kext.

    My Hardware is the same as yours except for the Graphicscard, wich is a GTX980 from MSI. - I tried to disconnect it and the internal CPUGPU showed no Picture - not even from the BIOS-Startscreen - that may be also a Problem i don't understand.

    My Config:
    • Asus Maximus VIII Hero
      Intel Core i7-6700K
      MSI NViDiA GeForce GTX 980 GAMING 4G (4096 MB)
      16GB (2x8GB) G.Skill Trident Z DDR4-3200 CL16
    • Samsung MZ-V6E500BW SSD 960 Evo NVMe M.2 500 GB
    • BCM94360CD

    The config.plist is for the UniBeast USB installation thumb drive. If you disable the USB ports in the BIOS, you can use the installation thumb drive.

    I haven't a clue to what is causing your problem. I recommend you open a problem thread in the Sierra Desktop Support forum section > https://www.tonymacx86.com/forums/sierra-desktop-support.186

    Good luck!
