What guide/tool I followed:

Luckily I can still boot to Sierra and I get the following report after login:

What files/config I am using:

Clover version: r5122

Clover folder structure:




Extra Info:

My Hackintosh build has been working flawlessly for a few years but I need to use some software that isn't supported with Sierra. Any help is appreciated.
