With 7 zip unzipping "Install macOS Sierra.raw".I put "Install macOS Sierra" with "SUSE Studio ImageWriter".When you start the finished USB flash drive,16gb. with Clover bootloader get this boot error.

How do I fix this error?

Thank you very much!!!

Hi ikar777, I do'nt know what language you speak natively, I speak Spanish. I'm still downloading the installer, but from my experience must follow the guide written on this page. If you're on Windows, you must create the installer with win32image writer. If you're on OS X you should follow the next guide:

The image is as "Install macOS Sierra.raw.bz2" you must erase the ".bz2" and create your installer with win32imagewriter from windows.


When making my installation, I'll post the results.

Looks like Sierra supports only CPUs with SSE4 instruction set. I can't install it on my Q6600 Core 2 Quad which runs El Capitan.

So, to use Win32DiskImager, all I need to do it is selecting the image, and click and Write, also, the only way to this works in mac it is for command line, or can I restore with Disk Utility? Cause I tried and the PENDRIVE appears, but it not appear in UEFI mod, so I boot the pendrive and doesn't work :/

I'm trying now with transmac, restoring the image to pendrive, the last one I did with this.

Also if this doesn't work, can you explain a little more how to get this working using Windows?

Sorry if i'm a noob guys, I've been hacktoshing for months and I love MacOS.

Thanks!

You have to decompress the bzip2 then write to USB stick using Win32 Disk Imager or SUSE Studio ImageWriter.


Someone suggested this app but I didn't try it

If you restore with Disk Utility the EFI partition won't be written so it won't boot on PCs, just on real Macs.

Maybe Sierra graphics kexts have changed, check if your Board-ID is listed in /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist under ConfigMap with "none" config.

I have a single Clover folder with :

Board-ID

Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61


I check AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext on Capitan and Sierra. There is both the same line under ConfigMap :

Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61

none


El Capitan succeeds to boot without nv_disable=1 but I get a blank screen on Sierra (except I use nv_disable=1)

Maybe a fix will appear in my sleep, as sometimes :mrgreen:

Did you decompress the bzip2 before writing to USB?


Some motherboards can't boot from GPT USB drives.

If it's the case, you won't be able to use this image, you'll have to build the installer yourself, using a MBR formatted drive.


The process is the same as for Yosemite

Can you test the installer on another computer to certify it's the case?
