Dear All,

I am trying to install Mac OS Sierra 10.12.2 on my dell laptop. I have managed to boot from USB installation drive using Unibeast (Clover Legacy). The boot did start with apple logo and a progress bar. After that I am stuck in a screen where it is presumably asking me to turn some switch on in the laptop. Please check the screenshot attached and let me know how can I proceed.

Note:
1. I had to plug my RAM to slot #0 to get rid of initial panic that says somethig like
Code:
panic(cpu 0 caller 0xfffff... : "zone_init: kmem_suballoc failed"@/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/xnu/xnu-3789.41.3/osfmk/kern/zalloc.c:2149
2. I had to add the following to default config.plist file to get rid of blank screen after boot.
Code:
<key>ig-platform-id</key>
<string>0x01660003</string>

The screens you have are covered in the guide, post #2.

Hint: Press the space bar, or plug in a USB keyboard.
