(you'll need a fix available here if it goes blackscreen : https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...-imac-15-or-imac-17-system-definition.183113/ )

Don't forget to download the latest clover build, made it a lot easier with Sierra (idk why)

Conclusion :
Freshly installed but it seems like there's no problems, everything works fine. Only my HDMI wasn't working but i forgot to uncheck "inject nvidia" in clover. (small BIOS issue, freezing sometimes, but i don't know if it's from Clover or something else, just restart and it's all good)

Not sure about the Type-C USB, didn't tested it.

(Sorry if there's bad English sentences :angel:)

What did you do for the clover config?

and for the FakeSMC, was that already selected/ greyed out?
