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

    • Hello. I just installed hackintosh high sierra on my PC. It's version is 10.13 so is there any way I can update to 10.13.3? And also my hackintosh freezes when opening few applications like logic pro x. Please help me.
    • Same problem here. Did you solve this?
    • I was having an issue with installing High Sierra because I was getting this error OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for /System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
      using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no I tried all the fixes that everyone was telling me about replacing the file with a different one but nothing worked. Finally I came across a post from some person who had a laptop that was designed like mine. I have the Aspire A515-51. The weird thing is that it has 8gb of ram installed. There is 4gb that is soldered to the motherboard and one 4gb ram in the only ram slot. Well this person stated that if he removed the 4gb ram that was installed in the ram slot the install would move past the error and install. I tried it and WOW it worked. I was able to complete the install and everything worked just fine but the wifi. So I hope this helps someone, but I am also hoping that someone can help me with the issue of the ram. I can't add the ram back into the ram slot or the boot will stall at  OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for /System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
      using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no
