Hi,
I'm trying to get macOS Sierra (also tried El Capitan) installed on my Lenovo ThinkPad E470 (Core i7-7500U; 16GB RAM; NVIDIA GeForce GTX-940MX). But it shows me every time following error, when I try to boot from my clover USB. (Yes I know my laptops shows the error not really good readable... I can read many ACPI warnings, but ACPI is enabled)

Does anyone knows what I can do, to make macOS working on my ThinkPad?
Thanks!

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.

Thanks, I'm now able to boot into the installer but when 6secs of PHASE 1 are left, the installer says that the preparation of the installation is failed. I tried it already two times. How can I get rid of this error message?

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

And your profile is not filled out as per FAQ. Please fix before your next reply.

Thanks for your answer. As described I filled out my profile but I couldn't find information about my chipset. How can I log the installation itself?

Chipset set can only be 100-series for Kaby Lake CPU (there are no 200-series mobile chipsets ATM).
You need to attach "Problem Reporting" files.

But for the Problem Reporting files I have to boot into the installed os and I can't get macOS installed. Are the clover logs usefull?

The "Problem Reporting" requirements are very clear for the case of not being able to boot the installer.
(must provide EFI/Clover and an image depicting the problem/error).

Please read carefully.
