Guys, save me :cry:
Save 2 month-long every day hardworking in order to make this hackintosh

I forced shutting down by hold down power key. Unfortunately, when I turn on laptop I stuck at login screen showing a snipping beach ball just after submitting password.

How can I fix the problem? Tell me anything but re-installing.
I can't believe I have to reinstall OS again.
@RehabMan I beg you save me. I can't reinstall anymore. Please ...

Try repairing your system volume in the macOS installer (Disk Utility).

No success.
Still stuck.
I think it's all about damaged user account files and opened apps in last session just before forced shutting down.
I have access to mac partition using paragon HFS+ software. Can you tell me if removing some files from some directory help me to get rid of this situation?

Using Paragon on windows to access and modify files on a mac partition will cause issues on your hack. This software is not recommended.

Thanks for sharing.
I didn't use it so far.
Have any idea to make a new user or repair this user or something else?

try safe mode

or use your usb installer and reinstall MacOS (you can reinstall without formatting, this will save your files)

Safe mode? How?

I don't care so much about files. Because I guessed Sierra isn't stable. So, I didn't store important data on macOS HD.

My main concern is just about kexts and working audio/brightness/power managment/etc. I wonder if these item work after reinstalling or not? Actually, I don't have time to make them working again.

Safe mode is available from the Clover menu (press space bar instead of enter).
