Hello Guys,

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.
