removed AMD9000Controller.kext which should be the one for r9 380x (looked up on

You'll need to remove the X4000 kext too. Alternatively try with SierraAMD V4 rather than V4.5. V4 was 10.12.4 or 10.12.5 I can't remember,

@suyash, For Intel you are best to make the USB with createinstallmedia and use Clover.

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.
1) 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.
2) 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.
3) Boot into BIOS
Make the new device as the primary boot device. Save and shutdown,
Obv, try UEF first
4) Done? Enjoy it

Sorry guys, new to forums and have been posting in the wrong place. I've followed the instructions, installed and configured clover as in the videos. But it still won't boot from the hdd. The screen is also glitchy and the icons are messed up. Apart from that, everything is great. Any help would be appreciated. My hdd isn't displayed in the lower screen in clover vibrant either, but I don't think it's meant to be visible yet, right?
Thanks guys
