Hackintosh freezes at beginning of progress bar (Clover -> Sierra)


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I hope I am right with the topic in this thread.


I am just building my first Hackintosh and having problems with starting via clover.

I am always stuck just at the beginning of the progress bar below the apple.

I want to install MacOs Sierra with Clover from an Lexar 128 GB USB drive.


After reading a lot, I tried diverse boot options like "npci=0x2000 nv_disable=1" or "PCIRoot=1". I turned on the safe mode but it still freezes just at the beginning of the progress bar.

I set the bios options, I changed the USB slot of the stick from front to back and since I thought it might be the graphics card, I removed it and changed to internal graphics. But it still freezes at the same point. Sometimes one line more or less but still around the same. I attached some photos of the point it freezes.


My configuration is:


- Intel Core i7-6700K 4 GHz

- Gigabyte GA-Z170M-D3H Mainboard

- Ballistix Sport LT 64GB RAM

- Gigabyte GeForce NVIDIA GTX 960 WindForce2OC

- Samsung EVO 850 1 TB SSD


After almost surrendering, I flipped and tried a lot of different Clover options and with these checked, it finally progressed and let me install MacOS Sierra:

- usb ownership

- usb injection

- cpu halt enabler

- graphics injectEDID


Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be?!


Thanks for any help.
