Any issues?  I tried to install it and now it hangs up half way through the boot process.   Boot in verbose mode, gets through that and then the white apple/black background and nothing.

SUCCESS!  I got it by rebooting to my normal hard drive and then just running the installer off the desktop onto a blank drive.  Reboot and let the install finish.  Before that I had to change my profile in Clover to an iMac10,1 for the install though and before I changed it back to a MacPro3,1 I had to edit and add my board ID and Model type to the PlatformSupport.plist file inside of System/Library/CoreServices and it seems to be running fine.

i think that socket LGA 775 isn't compatible with SIERRA !!!!!

It is, I put a Yorkfield Xeon processor in it which does have the SSE4,1 instruction set.

In Topic: How do I get the boot loader on the system drive?

I was able to install El Capitan on my Hackintosh using the Chris' instructions and the Clover Special Edition 2.3k tool to create a USB installer. But I can only boot into El Capitan when the USB stick is inserted. What did I do wrong or is their something else I need to do to be able to boot from the system SSD?


I'm a Mac noob so please don't take anything for granted in your reply.




Short answer is to reboot with the USB installer and then install Clover on the drive you installed 10.11 on.  Thats why it won't boot.

A great tool  for Unsupported Mac here Build by Apple Dev






The Site is here




Anyway thats need SSE4,1 minimum for working


So does that mean that a Xeon X3370 Yorkfield 3.0 Ghz Quad core chip might work with Sierra?  I have an old EP45C Gigabyte motherboard.
