Hello all,

I would love a little of your time and assistance

My kit
Gigabyte z170x UD5 TH
Nvidia 980 Ti water cooled
i7 6700k Water cooled
64GB Ram Corsair (16gb x 4) DDR 4
Broadcom wifi card
SanDisk 480gb SSD
Mac Definition 17.1



Issue
I have followed the guide and I have installed Sierra. My ram is recognised and also the wifi card as it ethernet, I haven't tested audio.

I cannot for the life of me get the Nvidia card to work, and I have tried all sorts the latest a fresh build using unibeast to build the USB key and Multibeast with 1150, 100 audio and Ethernet option selected, with UEFI.

I have made the changes to the config.plist to use the webdrivers but it just reboots on start up about half way through the loading bar. It goes on in a cycle.

I can boot from USB and get back into Sierra as I am now but the NVIDIA drivers will just not seemingly take.

I have attached two files one from the boot loading, and the second from the about this Mac panel where you can see the card is not recognised as an NVIDIA just generic 7mb card.

I have tried many things from switches to fixes - one which interested me but I can't seem to get to work was the mod info.plist fix as I don't seem to be able to enable root using the old directory services way of doing it.

Followed standard instructions on the setting of bios three or 4 times.

So if you have any thoughts and before I impale myself on a Wifi aerial I would love to hear them. Even if it is that I am an idiot.
Have you tried igpu as primary display in board bios? It is necessary for newer AMD cards, it may also apply to Nvidia, not sure but it's worth a try. Sierra wants to run as integrated graphics on hackintosh.

stuck on boot screen

El Capitan was running fine
not booting without usb drive
not recognising my 1080p display

When you created your bootable USB with Unibeast and got to the option Graphic Configuration it asked you if your graphics card fell into a certain category such as 6xx 8xx 9xx or something similar. Does your graphics card fall into any of these categories? and if so did you check graphic enabler?. This may be the reason why it does not recognize your display.

In order to boot without USB you have to install the UEFI bootloader once you get the OS X running. I used Multibeast for this. You usually have two options: legacy mode and UEFI. I would go for UEFI.

I hope this helps good luck.

Unibeast keeps crashing for me when copying files to usb... http://prnt.sc/codaau

Any ideas?

The same usb worked perfectly 18 months ago when I installed yosemite, and it still appears to be working fine.

but how it can be missing just after installation??
The obvious answer would be because you didn't install it - Only you know that.

Please read and comply with the rules :
The Rules said:
Profiles need to contain at least your primary system to assist others with helping you
Also, posting for help in a Guide thread is not a good idea, you should start a thread of your own in Sierra Desktop Support.

Using Disk Utility when you see the usb it has media and a name below. Pick media and close the side arrow, erase media, then partition media, you will have to rename file to partition. Try installing unibeast again.

I struggled with that for a while I was erasing media and untitled but until I closed the arrow I could not completely erase usb and make it usable.
