CPU: Intel Core i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz
RAM: 8GB DDR3
GPU: SAPPHIRE RADEON HD6670 1GB GDDR5
Audio: Realtek ALC889
Storage: Samsung EVO 850 SATA III

Note: If you have the same motherboard, connect SATA III to Marvel ports at your own risk. I connected to Intel SATA II port, speed became half, still it's far better than regular HDD.

# Display Going Black [No Signal from GPU] after Clover Boot

I selected ATI Inject while creating the bootable usb drive with Unibeast. Everything went absolutely fine until I tried to go to the Installer. Looked like Clover booted fine, but after that, GPU stopped responding and screen went black/blank. Many people here suggested Lilu + WhateverGreen, didn't help.

Finally, THIS REPLY saved my day! I could see the installer and install Sierra.

Then again, when I tried to boot from SSD, again I had to do this tweak in Clover. Then I opened my Clover config.plist with Clover Configurator. Unchecked all fields in this field: [Check Attached Image]

That resolved this issue for me.

# Ethernet not working after MultiBeast

This was super strange. Ethernet was working absolutely fine until I installed RealtekRTL8111 v2.0.0 driver with Multibeast. So I tried with other LAN drivers available for Realtek in this Multibeast version. Nothing helped.

Then, THIS REPLY saved my ass!


So far that's all what I did to run a smooth Sierra on my old machine. Share your problems or suggestions if you have similar hardware.

Happy Hackintosh... !

Hi SplintX.
I've done a similar build with my old system, but Radeon HD 5770. Works nicely, although I have dreaded shutdown problem (won't shutdown). Have tried all the usual approaches to dealing with shutdown.
Does your machine shutdown ok?

Well done.
