Upgrade to Sierra from Yosemite-Zone
Hello there! I am new to hackintoshing, and I just installed Yosemite-Zone on my computer: Dell Inspiron 530
-1.99 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
-3 GB 664 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
-NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 1024 MB
I was wondering how I could update to Sierra from my existing installation without loosing any data. I tried to use the App Store installer, but when I clicked restart, it stayed with a black screen and the mouse for a long time, until it restarted, but it didn't do anything. I also tried to boot into the drive labeled 'Recovery' but I got a crossed out circle. I was able to boot back into Yosemite, but no Sierra. Any ideas? Thanks!
Weird Post Installation Problems and Glitches
I'm having numerous problems after installing macOS Sierra Zone. I created a bootable drive using the dmg file, and installation went smoothly with boot-args: npci=0x3000 and kcsuffix=amd1.
The problems I'm facing is: The icons on the menu bar (the finder bar) don't show up. The apple logo on the extreme left is missing and all the icons are distorted smudge of colours.
And the graphics is not working. Desktop tearing is occurring and the 'About this mac' shows graphics card as 'AMD Radeon 4330M 4 MB'. My laptop doesn't have 4330M, the GPU is 7460G and the discrete graphics card is 7670M. The hackintosh detects the 7670M, but the 4330M is set as the primary display.
I have tried using 'Inject ATI' in clover, 'LoadVBios' and 'PatchVBios', I have tried modifying the 'info.plist' in AMDradeon7000controller.kext and everything I could find.
The screen tearing is unbearable. Please help!
P.S.: My system is AMD APU A8-4500M, with dual Graphics: 7640G+7670M. Hard Drive 1 TB SATA, 8GB RAM.

I've been trying to boot into the installer but as soon as I select Sierra from the boot loader I get this: http://i63.tinypic.com/1zl81ar.jpg
I think it may be poor flash drives, but I've tried two now with the same results.
I have Yosemite working if that means anything.
Any ideas? Thanks!
