I tried to install the Mac OS X Sierra with this guide here but i have a problem with the clover and with the Bootpack. Please, help me.

Not seeing the USB installer in the menu.

Go to boot option and create a new option. Call it Clover or whatever you like and map file to \EFI\Clover\Cloverx64.efi. 

Save and move it to the top. Reboot

 

Also I didn't see you replace the EFI folder with the generic from the guide which is okay but my generic EFI has a crucial file (HFSPlus.efi) you'll need.

HFSPlus.efi needs to be added to /EFI/Clover/drives64UEFI. I also have Sierra Theme in the Themes folder but you could use whatever theme,

You missed Note2 of the guide regarding Broadwell CPU, but with new developement since my guide was written, you could skip that step by adding 2 new kexts to /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other

lilu.kext IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup.kext

 

:excl:   :excl: Note2:

Systems with Broadwell / Skylake / Kabylake CPU such as Latitude E7450 and Inspiron 5548, you'll need to set the DVMT prealloc to 96MB in order to bypass KP and to enable full graphics with full QE/CI. For more info, see here.
