what other method did you use to create your installer?

hi thanks for the answer. for installing sierra I am trying following guides both from this site and insanelymac. since the first approach I tried (unibeast) didn't work, I created the USB installer following a thread in insanelymac, and that worked. hope it is not a problem and I won't be banned for this, I read somewhere there are conflicts between this and that other site?
if you want I can link the exact guide I followed, I am pretty sure the usb installer is fine, using that method I aslo created an el capitan installer that worked fine, but this time for sierra is not booting, I suspect the culprit is the clover settings...


thanks again

but in the config.plist you can see boot arguments -v and -x? if yes delete them from the file and retry

In file /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist in section Boot not options -x and -v

Code:
 <key>Boot</key>
        <dict>
                <key>Arguments</key>
                <string>dart=0 nv_disable=1</string>
                <key>Debug</key>
                <true/>
                <key>DefaultVolume</key>
                <string>MacHDD</string>
                <key>Legacy</key>
                <string>PBR</string>
                <key>Secure</key>
                <false/>
                <key>Timeout</key>
                <integer>3</integer>
                <key>XMPDetection</key>
                <string>NO</string>
        </dict>

From where did you download the 10.12.6 installer app?
