Access chat to get download link (channel topic).

MD5 (Install macOS Sierra.raw) = 26e016793fb3bcbdc2c9ba9bd99e70bb

- Copy the .raw file to an USB stick

For Windows
http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Create_a_Liv ... ng_Windows
or
http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

If you have error during copy, eject and re-connect the pen drive. When Windows asks if you want to format it, cancel and run Image Writer again.

If the problem persists, disable your anti-virus software, it may be blocking raw write to the drive.

For OS X
viewtopic.php?f=28&t=3736


- Boot the USB drive and install.

Default boot loader is Clover
https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/

If you want to use Enoch press 1 at boot
http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/71-enoch/

As of version 2839 Enoch kext injection doesn't work, so you have to copy needed kexts to /System/Library/Extensions and boot with -f (ignore caches).

UEFI boot is for Aptio BIOS only. For other BIOS use legacy boot to install, you can fix UEFI boot later

Common problems booting the installer
viewtopic.php?f=36&t=5006

You need at least one free partition, use Disk Utility (in the Utilities menu) to erase it as Mac Os Extended (Journaled).

If you want to install the boot loader in this partition and you use MBR, it must be a primary (not extended/logical) partition.

Wait for the installation to finish and restart.


- Boot the USB drive, then choose to boot the HD you just installed OS X (not the installer USB again).

Post install instructions

- When you format the USB drive as FAT/NTFS you'll notice its size was reduced. Just open Disk Management (Administrative Tools), remove the 7 GB partition and create a new one using all the drive.

Hi.
I'm sorry for my bad English.
This is my pc configuration.
I have no problemio with OS X El Capitan 10.11 bootable USB for Intel PCs http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=5545

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:
viewtopic.php?f=28&t=3736

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.

So I did this, using TransMac and it worked!
I installed the OS, but now i'm booting the Macintosh partition to do the post-installation stuff, but i'm getting black screen, and display saying, No HDMI signal, there is a way to do this work?
