Oh my God! I'm almost crying!!!I just wanted to say a big thank you dnovosad!
I've been using my Yosemite Hackintosh happily for the last 3 years, and didn't want to upgrade unless it was absolutely necessary!
Well I bought an Acer XR382CQK monitor and noticed that my GTX 780ti just wasn't cutting it anymore. So I upgraded to a GTX 1070, (stupidly) without checking if it was compatible on Yosemite, and of course I found out that it wasn't. I'd already upgraded to Sierra on my 2012 MacBook Pro, so it was probably about time that I did the same with the Hackintosh, as a lot of software is dropping Yosemite support anyway.
When I came across your guide for the same motherboard as mine (Sabertooth X79), I was so happy!
Following the guide was easy, and migrating from Chimera to Clover was actually a lot easier than expected!
A few things I wanted to add to your guide:
USB 3.0 support: I noticed right after the sierra install, before installing any Multibeast drivers, that the USB3.0 worked already, without doing anything, and that it was only after installing the 3rd Party USB 3.0 GenericUSBXHCI.kext that the USB3.0 stopped working. So it might be worth checking if you have that installed and then remove it.
I'm running 10.12.6, and Unibeast 7.1.1 so I don't know if there was a change in there that fixed the USB3.0 support, but it worked for me right out of the box.
Audio support: This one was really annoying to get working, but I got there in the end.
First, start out with a fresh AppleHDA.kext, and don't install anything with Multibeast, remove anything if you already have installed drivers. then you need to download SSDT-HDEF+-1.aml from here
Then you need to follow the AppleHDA Realtek Audio Methods - Required: a. native AppleHDA.kext, b. EFI mounted
1. cloverALC (c. SIP disabled, d. Clover and e. network required)
Download/View Raw: audio_cloverALC.command.zip
Options I chose in the CloverALC:
Confirm Realtek ALC892: Y
Clover Audio ID Injection: Y
Use Audio ID: 1: Y (because the motherboard has 6 audio ports)
Motherboard (300/200/X299/X99/Other = n) : N (because it is X79)
I then restarted and it all worked fine!
Also, if you have a GTX 1070, or any 1000 series for that matter, when installing FakeSMC, make sure you delete the file FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext from the system/library/extensions, otherwise you will get a Kernal Panic, because Pascal GPUs aren't supported.
Only other problems I had was having to convert my Windows 10 partition from MBR to GPT, which I used WinPE and MBR2GPT to convert it, as I was using Legacy before so it was compatible with Chimera Bootloader. And now it's showing 4 different windows partitions in the Clover Boot menu, and I haven't figured out how to remove them yet! EDIT: deselected Legacy from the GUI settings in Clover Configurator and it worked.
I'm also trying to change the Clover boot menu resolution, as it's all stretched on my Ultrawide monitor, but this isn't a biggie!
Now I've got sound thanks to you!
I've been almost a year muted and now I'm listening!
This forum rocks!
