Did fresh install of Sierra (vanilla), and USB seems to be running well (Write benchmark to USB 3.0 drive @ 135MBps). Time Machine, however has only backed up 100GB in 27 hours. At this rate, it will take days to backup ~450GB.
Reconfigured my system using the Clover Boatloader (Love this configuration). After spending several hours troubleshooting I got it to boot. My issue now is I want to make a backup with Time Machine but it freezes between 350 - 600mb. I ran First Aid (Disk Utilities) which indicated my system and time machine hard drive have no issues. Here is some info:
Motherboard: GA-Z77-HD3 Clover v2k_r2652 Installed the following kext: FakeSMC, RealtekRTL81xx, and NullCPUPowerManagement in the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.9/ folder.
I haven't tackled the audio issue yet but can someone confirm it goes into the same folder above.
Please note I did not use a DSDT.aml or SSDT.aml. I tried to stay as vanilla as possible then work out the non-working issues.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
P.S. Time machine worked perfectly with pre-Clover Chimera / [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installation.

before this setting i have tried 30 installation, this guide on my configuration work at 100%
So, i figured i would install OSX on the notebook of my GF.
As usual i made the backups before trying to do anything. Well, the installation was not really a success, so i went back to installing Windows on the machine. I wanted to restore the backup from my pc, guess what, somehow the data is gone, or has never been copied. I have no idea what went wrong, but it comes down to this, i have to restore the data from her HDD.
I have it connected through USB right now, already found some files, but i'm looking for software that also restores the filenames etc, if possible. Currently i'm using Disk Drill.
The drive has been repartitioned 4 times, has been formatted even more, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
The system i use to restore the data is in my sig.
I've been working at a pawn shop here recently and we got a macbook pro with mountain lion installed... The pawnee(?) never came back to redeem their pawned item so it's ours now to sell. Well my boss got this in before I started working there and he never asked the person for their username/apple-id and password. He's tried getting ahold of them, but their phone number is no longer in service.
So how can we either factory restore or completely reinstall everything, it askes us to logon with the apple-id after a few steps from cmd(Or opt?) r, we registered his store e-mail with itunes and apple-id but it still asked us to sign in with the previous owners login. If I had a mountain lion disc could I just install it right away from cmd(Or opt?) b(I think it is?) I know we tried with snow leopard and it gave us that monochrome gray, black and white error screen, why is that?
But how can we get around this? So my boss can put it out on the stores shelves up for sale...
I'm trying to get the job done, help him and learn something new!
