Ok and did you type in that kextcache command or is it going well without that ?
Yes, I had to run
Code: Select all
 kextcache -u <Target>

My understanding is that this is required whenever you have made changes to kexts, which we certainly have done. Don't forget to specify the target volume! So, in English, that command updates the cache of kexts on the Target volume. In my case, the partition I created for Sierra was named MACOS, so I ran
Code: Select all
kextcache -u /Volumes/MACOS
It takes a few seconds to run, and in my experience, if it returns immediately without any messages, something has gone wrong.

I just thought I would attach a screen shot of what I got when I tried to install Sierra. I know it was a long shot, but what the hell I decided I'll just try it for the hell of it.

Open the Disk Utility, and click the window, and use the arrow keys to select a drive.

@Sundhar88, Can you take a picture so I can see? If your HDD is detected then you should be able to format.
