Some more info:


First: it have optimus, but don't know if is used from OSX, I choose in Clover Macbook Pro 9.1 (the 15 inch, with Optimus, but different nVidia).


Second: the bluetooth is the original Dell separated interface (not integrated in wi-fi).

On the Bluetooth: it work when first install OSX from USB key, but don't work audio.

After post installation, work audio, but didn't work bluetooth. :-(


My next goals: make bluetooth working, upgrade to high sierra.

On the bluetooth mybe it is only a conflict.


Now in reading the suggest thread...

First attempt on OSX High Sierra: FAILED :-)


Prepared the USB Boot device with upgraded kext downloaded from https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/

Edited config.plist from Sierra Bootpack (activate FixHeaders option under Acpi; copied the value for USB port limit for High Sierra from the pics in the guide, disabled 10.12 (Red) and add 10.13 (Green - 9 or 100 Series); Under SMBIOS, update the definition to MacBook Pro 9.1)


The boot sequence stopped and I cannot reach the OS X Installer screen.. :-(








IntelGraphicsFixup 1.2.7.RELEASE


lilu 1.2.3.RELEASE




Clover Configurator (
