Usually USBBusFix=Yes is enough,  I'm sorry i didn't read your question completely that was my mistake, I'm replying from my iPhone. When you boot from USB keep pressing number 6 that will load clover bootloader try booting Sierra from Installation with Clover, what is your Laptop model you didn't post your hardware details. If possible post images of your BIOS USB Settings

Sorry for not posting my laptop details.
I have Asus Laptop model no. K53SD. with Intel Core i3 2.29 Ghz 2nd Gen Processor, 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Ram, Intel HD 3000 Graphics 384 MB.(Sandy Bridge).
i already have your yosemite with chameleon installed so i just want it to upgrade to sierra.(As i am unable to install Xcode in current OS).
if i boot sierra with clover then, can i upgrade previous yosemite..

Thank you for making this much effort and taking time to answer my questions.

Yes you can upgrade but fresh installation is recommend
i still wonder why Yosemite works and Sierra stuck at waiting for Root device?
Did you try booting from clover

No, i have not tried booting with clover, but i am going to give a try now.
and i have some different error previously which is giving kernel panic error
and backtrace was pointing to AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement
so i replaced it with my patched AICPM in usb image. and that error was solved but this error pops up.

same problem here... stuck at waiting for root device ...

though i've tried everything but no luck...

booted from all the usb ports lead to the same error..

booted from both the legacy and clover lead to the same error...

tried bootflags : -v -x -F -f -s USBBusFix=Yes

lead to the same error...

only once i'd booted it bypassing the error and go to the apple logo but a cross sign appeared on the screen - installation stopped.

But i had successfully installed yosemite zone...

never had an error or problem at yosemite installation...

so what is the problem in Sierra zone ???

please fix this error, please...  @Niresh

Had the same problem on a Toshiba Satellite C640. Core i5 Sandy Bridge. I could not boot with UEFI on that, so gave up. 

P.S. Messed up my bios, turning of USB Legacy. Now I can't enter BIOS lol

Any fixes for this?

I am a noob at it lol

Press f2 to enter into bios...

And change settings....

For boot into uefi ...

Change boot mode : csm to uefi

For installing mac os x : change sata : ide to ahci

But unfortunately after changing to uefi bootable USB never showed clover bootloader which is already pre-installed in this distro...

So in my case 1st i've to install windows in uefi mode...

Then install clover manually (google it) but be sure that the size of the efi partition must be 200 mb or more ...

Then boot into mac os through bootable USB ...

Hope it helps you...

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
