Great, bro! Thanks a lot, I found it!

I would appreciate if you help me out to get my first Hackintosh? 

Here are my pc specs:

1. Motherboard Asus P7P55D LE.

2. BIOS is legacy (not uefi).

3. CPU- Intel core i7, 2.8Ghz

4. graphics - ATI Radeon HD 5800 series

5. network adapter- Realteck.


On other site I asked which mac OS version could be compatible, got advice that up to 10.12.6 ( i believe it is Sierra).


I tried to start with Yosemite (no any particular reason why, just picked it up). 

First issue was getting Yosemite App (apple store does not allow to downgrade mac os, therefore i could not download from official site). I was given a link to torrent site, from where I downloaded.  It turned out to be DMG file, not App.

1. So I followed this youtube guide to put DMG file onto USB drive:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=22&v=b_NPCB6--24


2. I created USB with Clover legacy following this guide:https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/how-to-install-os-x-yosemite-using-clover.144426/ 


I ended up on Yosemite installer screen of grey color with permanently spinning colored wheel. I attach the last screen I took photo with phone. Also I attach BIOS settings ( i just change two settings: change sata from IDE to AHCI and disable quick booting). (Unfortunately I cannot upload  clover. plist configuration screen shots in this post, it says i am only allowed 10mb. i tried to reduce size of files, to no avail )
