Try rebooting a couple of times.

post debug files if still fails

Thanks I did make the touchpad and backlight work. the problem now is that HDMI just freezes the computer the instant I insert it. I am using @catmater latest posted here config.

an other issue is that the trackpad is not recognized by macOs thus can't use the nice gestures of switching between the virtual desktops. 
here are my debug files ( I don't have an EFI partition yet so I always boot from USB ).

inject right layot  in conf, and put codeccommander.kext in to SLE , and rebuild cache 

i put the code commander in L/E because of some problem in permissions in my the backlight works due to that (i think!). 
is my layout different form yours because i didn't try to change anything. And how the hell did you make HDMI work on an smbios with 4 thunderbolts??

 What may be wrong ?

interesting thing - i don't use this boot argument : Boot args: dart=0 debug=0x100 -cdfon -igfxnohdmi -v

This is arg from USB flash  

I think is old error, then i try to optimize config. 

How i can clear tis error ?

That's your graphics relating to DVMT. There's a patch in the Config already to fix the problem but the Skylake FB kext must be cached to be hotpatched. So that tells me your cache is broken. You can try 2 things:

1) Set the DVMT in the BIOS and you won't have to deal with the hotpatching anymore. See here

2) At Clover boot, go to Options, set the ig-platform-id to 0x12345678, this will allow you to boot into OSX without QE/CI. Once there, rebuild your cache

Reboot normally

Can't  help. 

1. here i set 0x12345678


2. Boot without normal graphics card init (14mb) 

3. and i do sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /

4. Reboot and  have same error
