You have to modify config.plist. Update your serial number(It is blank) as well as drive label name on which mac is installed (in my case "macOS") . 


Fyi... I have deleted Athros kext. Also check my signature and tweak/merge accordingly.


Which kext for audio is working for you guys? 


HDAdisabler + voodoohda are working perfectly for me!!

Hello Dr. Hurt,

For installation and use of OSX El Capitan everything works perfectly, except USB 3.0 have not applied the fix on table DSDT.aml
Use exactly the same parameters suggested in your guide but it is impossible to install MacOS Sierra
That may be failing, I'm making that mistake. If you like I can attach the fileClover to your review, there also is my DSDT

My configuration is Intel Core i7 2670QM 16GB RAM, HD3000 and Nvidia 525M, disk Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB and Atheros wifi and bluetooth.




I don't know. I looked at your Clover folder and here are some remarks:

- You have 2 HFS+ drivers in drivers64 -> Delete vboxhfs

- You have an SSDT in ACPI/Patched -> Delete it because Clover automatically creates one


After that, try booting the installer in safe mode, with USB stick plugged into black USB 2.0 port

If still nothing, delete all kexts in "others" folder except fakesmc and voodoops2 and try again.

I have a kernel panic when I use this kext


I don't know how to switch to legacy, my hard is partitioned as gpt

and I'm afraid to let clover installer update mbr (Is there mbr in gpt partitions?) and do something that can destruct my data

Is there any dangerous in the switching process?


I don't know about the touchpad anymore. I applied the sierra fix and it loads o my system with V3 so the problem is with the V6 code. I'll leave that to radut to see.

I'll see if there's anything else I can do.


Disable UEFI boot in BIOS. Or flash the original legacy BIOS.

Install clover with the following options: (and only those)

1- Install Clover in the ESP

2- Install boot0af in the MBR

3- CloverEFI 64-bit BiosBlockIO



If you're hard drive is partitioned as GPT, you will not lose date because you'll not reformat. All you need is to disable UEFI, install clover as per settings above.

And yes, GPT disks have MBR but they're not used the same way as on a legacy system.

Can't wait to get the working kext


Thank you very much, you are so kind


Here's the kext with the Sierra fix and compiled using xcode 8 with Sierra as a target. Tested on my system and it works. 


I'll probably be updating my ALPS driver to add V6 support since my driver has a more up to date base. Works better in my case.


I copy the same clover folder that is working from the usb flash to EFI partition, and add the clover entry to boot menu,

after that it loads the clover main ui but when I choose the macOS partition nothing happens


I don't know why its not working, the clover folder work in usb flash but not work form EFI partition!


Probably because you're using UEFI. I would recommend you switch to legacy.

I have problems installing Mac OS Sierra get the following message:

com.apple.xpc.launchd [1] (org.ntp.sntp.134) Warning Service exit With abnormal code:1


You can help me


I use your guide


This is a rather unspecific error. Are you using a correct DSDT?

I will try this later, but I want to move clover to EFI partion

now I boot to osx from your clover folder, I but it to a flash and use it


but I want to move the clover to EFI partion like Mohammed did in the first page of this guide,


I make the EFI partion like this:

newfs_msdos -v EFI /dev/disk0s1

mkdir /Volumes/EFI
mount_msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI

but when I copy clover from the flash to this partion its not working


If you format the hard drive as GPT using disk utility, you do NOT need to reformat the EFI partition.

All you need to do is run the clover installer, select customize and select ESP option.


Then use EFI mounter utility to mount the EFI partition and replace the Clover folder.


As for the ALPS kernel panic, it's probably caused by the old version of xcode I'm using.
