I am attempting my first Hackintosh build on OS X Sierra (10.12.4). While doing so I seemed to have ran into a brick wall. I cant even get the initial setup going to install OS X. It gives a kernel panic every single time. I've tried everything I could think to do to try and fix this, problem is there wasn't really much I could think of besides to format and re-create the Install USB. Below, I will walk you through my hardware and the steps I've taken to reach said kernel panic. This post may be lengthy so, thanks to all that take the time to read it all and offer advice.
Advisory: I use the Clover bootloader and Clover Configurator in the steps below. These are a must for me! (Sorry [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] fans)
Mobo: Asus Z170-Deluxe
CPU: i7 6700K
RAM: 4x8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport
GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti Founder's Edition (Not yet purchased, so not a factor as of now)
PSU: Corsair RM750
SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 512GB (yet to be formatted, used in a fully working previous El Capitan Hackintosh build)
Install USB: PNY 8GB USB 2.0 thumb drive
Current Mac: MacBook Pro 17", Early 2011
Step 1 - Download OS X Sierra from AppStore
Note: As you can see from my System Info above, I have an SSD as a startup disk. This SSD is not very large in storage capacity so I use external thunderbolt hard drives to save all of my data. When I downloaded OS X Sierra, it was stored on said external drive.
Step 2 - Format USB
OS Extended (Journaled)
GUID Partition Table
Step 3 - Create Sierra USB Install Drive
I was able to easily and successfully complete this step by using Terminal. Since my "Install macOS Sierra.app" wasn't in the default location, I simply had to point to it in the Terminal command.
Step 4 - Install Clover Bootloader
I used the following customization options when installing Clover Bootloader to my USB:
Step 5 - Download kexts and other essential files
Nvidia Web Driver
Nvidia Cuda Driver
Note: Put all these in a folder in the root of the install USB for post-install.
Step 6 - Clover Configurator
I used the following flags and other options in my Clover config.plist (Most things were left as default, not sure if this is the problem)
Step 7 - BIOS Settings
I used the BIOS settings in wildwillow's build guide
as reference, since he seemed to have the most similar hardware to me that I could find.

Boot > CSM > Boot from PCI-E/PCI Expansion Devices > UEFI driver first
Secure Boot > OS Type > Other OS
Secure Boot > Delete all keys under Key Management (4 in total)
Boot option #1 > UEFI macOS installation USB
Press F10 and save the changes to the BIOS.
Step 8 - Boot to USB (Kernel Panic)
Clover Bootloader comes up fine, and begins to countdown. I selected
Boot OS X Install from Install macOS Sierra
, then the verbose log began to run. After a few seconds, kernel panic.
Here are some pics of panic log(please excuse the dirty monitor...):
So this is where I am. I haven't a clue what the problem even is, so I'm not sure how to go about fixing it. It's super frustrating to have almost everything in place, and some unknown error keeps me from just installing OS X. I know my hardware is supported. As stated above, the SSD I am using has been used in a previous Hackintosh build where I used El Capitan. As a test, I did install OS X Sierra on this SSD to see if it was stable. I haven't formatted the drive yet as the kernel panic issue hasn't allowed me to get to Disk Utility. However, I am not sure if that even matters. I am just at wits end and am trying to include every little detail so the experts here can perhaps find a solution for me. Anyway, thanks for reading. Any help offered is greatly appreciated!
ciao ragazzi, ho usata la guida del sito per creare una chiave usb bootabile con sierra, ho digitato il comando per farlo in automatico, ma il terminale mi dice: /Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia: command not found
se faccio gli altri due metodi la chiavetta non va. suggerimenti?

Ram: Patriot Viper 16 GB (2-8GB Sticks) DDR4-3400

I cloned my drive, do I need to do any housekeeping like repairing permsisions? I saw some tutorials that are 5 years old that say I need to. Also, I had my original drive and cloned drive plugged in at the same time and when I booted the system from my cloned drive with the cloned drive in it still, it would hang for long periods of time with the spinning pinwheel. I removed the original drive and it worked flawlessly. Any insight to why it would do that?
Do I have to enable trim like with other SSD's do I?
I'm attaching my IO Reg, hoping anyone with some time can tell me if i'm missing anything here also.

After upgrading to 10.12.4, my Ethernet ports are not working. Wifi is, but any Ethernet LAN port will not work. I've tried three different ethernet cards, including my internal motherboard card/port, and none are working. I have the latest IntelMausi driver from ReHabMan, (3/21), but nothing seems to work. Tried other versions, no luck.
None of the cards will accept DHCP. You can manually address them, and they do respond to a self ping, but they cannot ping anywhere else. Not to my local router, (or any local IP addresses), and not to the Internet.
I tried removing all of the network interfaces and the plist and rebooting - that didn't work either.
Internal Ethernet chip is: Intel® I218V, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller
PING 22.214.171.124 (126.96.36.199): 56 data bytes ping: sendto: No route to host ping: sendto: No route to host Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 ping: sendto: No route to host Request timeout for icmp_seq 1 ping: sendto: No route to host Request timeout for icmp_seq 2 ping: sendto: No route to host Request timeout for icmp_seq 3 ping: sendto: No route to host (but adding a default route doesn't work either, as the route shows as already added (or the Wifi card wouldn't be able to get to the Internet).
I do have loaded the latest drivers from NVidia for 10.12.4. Most everything else works, just would like to get one of my wired Ethernet ports working.
I have an Asus X99-A II (Bios version is 1501), 64 GB of DDR4 RAM, NVMe Samsung drive, GTX 980 TI with the latest drivers from NVidia, and of course 10.12.4. Most everything works. Just would like to get my LAN cards working.
