Hello, kind Sir. I am not the guy above but I have exactly the same modification of this model: Dell inspiron 15 7577  i7-7700HQ, 512GB NVMe SSD, 16GB RAM, 4K UHD Display, Nvidia GTX-1060, Thunderbolt 3...

I humbly ask for your help.

I am going to install 10.13.6 or 10.14. Whatever possible.

BIOS version is 1.6.1 Motherboard model is 0J8HMF.

Ethernet is RTL8168/8111.

Wireless is Intel 8265 but I have ordered DELL 1650 Broadcom so this should be solved.

Touchpad: DEV0802&Col02.

Thank you.

Thank you for your reply. I followed the instructions and I see that it has moved forward a lot but then I am stuck at this screen. Something sound related but also the screen went completely black in a while. I have a 4K panel as a reminder. Do you have any ideas? :-)IMG_20181028_220259.thumb.jpg.2edc7e67621273330a0b924b08f44555.jpg

I have tried this config, but the output is almost the same. I have tried also to inject Intel with my ig_platform_id and I have seen a narrow strip of noise on the screen once. Looks like it tried to write to video memory but incorrectly. Do we have more options?

I had to set also *_platform_id to 0x12345678 and select InjectIntel in Clover to make it going. Only fakeID didn't work. It is a big progress for me. For now I'll make this change permanent in config.plist.

Thank you very much, Jake!!!

But could you direct me to how to resolve Intel GPU acceleration? I am afraid in 4K CPU will burn to death in software rendering. :-)

There is an update on the situation. I had kernel panic and it turned out that in Clover command line I had nv_disable=1 and debug=100 without dashes. Anyway, when I added dashes I did not receive kernel panic but also I did not see any picture but I could hear sound coming and notebook reacting to key presses. Also I had this messages saying that GPU initialized and works.

Now when in Mac OS I can still see 2 adapters and I can see that Intel 630 has only 32 MB of VRAM. Kext is not loaded.

Ethernet works, sound works, touchpad works, Bluetooth even works, all USB ports work.

Jake, could you instruct me what must be done in this situation?

Thank you in advance.
