  1. Dear folks, I followed the step by step guide carefully, however i still can't get the surface book boot to the usb. Maybe I miss the step or whatever. since i am using 10.12. i started from below Download Clover from Clover Official Download Page Install Clover by choosing "Install UEFI Version only, install to EFI partition, Install Themes, Driver64UEFI(unselect CsmVideoDxe-64) After installing, you should see a Partition called EFI mounted, and it's your thumb drive (Copy the EFI folder from Installing OS X to the EFI Partition) only do this if it didn't do atomically Download SurfaceDriver.zip 1.22MB 640 downloads and follow the instruction in the ReadMe.txt to paste the files into your CLOVER folder then after that continue to this : ++++++++++Notice for 10.12 USB Creation++++++++++ The pervious way of making the 10.11 drive won't work anymore in 10.12, instead, after downloading the 10.12 install app, you'll need to follow the following steps Show hidden files by executing this commanddefaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES Navigate to /Application/Install macOS Sierra/Contents/SharedSupport and mount InstallESD.dmg ​​Open "Disk Utility", restore the USB drive with Basesystem.dmg (hidden) in the mounted DMG file. Copy /Packages in the mounted DMG file to the restored USB's /System/Installation. Delete the old link before proceeding to the copy. ​​Copy basesystem.dmg and basesystem.chunklist to the root directory of your USB drive ================= even if i reverse the step, the usb still can not boot. Please help what step i missed??? TIA
