macOS won't boot from SATA

Hello! I was successfully able to upgrade to macOS sierra GM but I can't get the system to boot over SATA it currently works fine over USB. I had the same problem in El Captain as well. I have a MSI g55-sli, intel i7-4790k, 16gb ram, booting from intel SSD. I have tried enabling Trim support using Rampagedev's guide. I have also included the verbose boot output. Thank you for your help!

Morning,

is your SATA set to AHCI in your BIOS?

check page 3-10 of your manual to find the "SATA Mode" information and where to find it in your BIOS.

OSX can't boot from SATA drives in IDE Mode...

Afternoon! I did set my BIOS to AHCI which is the default on my MB, I've have also tried the RAID setting as well. I set up my MB by following the guide in the link below. Clover will see the drives and EFI partitions but when I try and boot to them I get the above error. Thank you for replying!

So, it's the same SSD just booting from an icy dock instead of internal SATA. The boot args are -v dart=0 nvda_drv=1 kext-dev-mode=1 The boot args stay the same wether it is connected via icy dock or Internal SATA. Thank you for replying! This has been driving me crazy.
