Can you walk a noob through this process, specifically with 10.12.6? I just put together my first Hackintosh and created the bootable USB according to the tutorial. After awhile it finally got the OS X installation, but predictably could not find a suitable HD as I've only got a Samsung Evo 960 installed at the moment. Will be receiving a 2.5" Samsung SSD later this week, which I suppose will be an easier install.
EDIT: I successfully installed OS X on an external HD. It's not bootable from anything but the USB drive, but I assume that's typical. Once my non-NVMe SSD arrives on Monday, I'll move put the OS on there. Let me know if you have success using the NVMe as your boot drive... I'd love to know how you accomplished this!
Yes, I have installed with success in my NVME SSD
. And I am to take steps to tell you how.
Install Hackintosh in HDD which you have done.
But something like you did not install Clover successfully. Or check in BIOS, if you selected HDD as the primary boot device.
Copy the system to new SSD.
Boot to your system. (If you have fixed the first problem, this would be not that painful)
Must for NVME device:
Use patches to let the system to detect 3-rd party NVME device. In Clover, Kernel and Kext Patches section. Add 17 for Sierra. Another patch which seems like a leader(?) with check Inforplistpatch. Then reboot. And you can open Disk Utility, NVME device is there.
Here, not AD, I use Carbon Copy Cloner. Copy your partition to new SSD. When it done, then, download latest Clover and install it to the new device. And you can copy or edit the default config.plist of new.
Boot into BIOS
Make the new device as the primary boot device. Save and shutdown,
Obv, try UEF first
Done? Enjoy it
