In my experience when dual booting and using the manual GPT method mentioned above, I will install windows first then macOS. The windows files will automatically be inside the EFI folder and need not do anything to it other than just install clover. :)

Hello!


I was wondering if any part of this hack could possibly help me.

I've got a very similar laptop, it's an Acer Nitro 5 515-51, 7th ( SSD Dual Boot Windows )

I've managed to install macOS, but I'm having issues triggering keyboard, sound and power management.

My question is, would simply copying kexts here under my EFI kexts folder and restart computer be enough to configure the hack or is there any step I'm missing?

Thanks in advance and follows up attached my computer report.

I tried both versions...

The unpatched one booted correctly, however, still no sound, keyboard or mouse working (touchpad).

The patched version gave me this error and didn't boot at all...

I tried changing the SMBIOS to processor closest to i5-7300HQ (MacbookPro 14,3) but it also didn't boot...

Guys, any ideas on how to fix this for my version of Nitro 5...

Tried one more time your patched Clover: everything works except keyboard and touchpad (and, of course, stock wi-fi). Could you help me to fix that? (I'm completely noob). But without your DSDT no audio at all, no brightness control and touchpad behaves strangely (with ApplePS2SmartTouchPad): three fingers tap - right click, two fingers tap - middle mouse button, four fingers pinch in - minimize windows, but four fingers up/down/left/right do nothing. With VoodooPS2Controller only two fingers scroll works and three fingers tap, no any three or four fingers gestures

I just want as same control as here

. As for me it's the most important part of the OS
