Acer Nitro 5 AN515-53-53U7 - Issues with install

Recommended Posts

Hello, i have a few issues with acer nitro 5 AN515-53-53U7 gaming laptop that i am trying to hackintosh.   Will get to the DSDT part eventually.   

 

To start my specs are as follows:

i5-8300H

Intel uhd 630 graphics (seems to be stuck at 7mb so if i can get some assistance on how to fix this as well would be great!)

nvidia gtx 1050 (i understand this isnt supported in mojave/catalina.  i understand the -wegnoegpu flag disables the nvidia card?)

16GB ddr4 gskill ripjaws ram

512GB NVME western digital black N750 SSD - windows

500GB Samsung 860 EVO SATA III 2.5mm SSD - Mac OSX

Ethernet connection: Realtek PCI-e GBE Ethernet connection with 100ft cat6 ethernet cable (prefer not using wifi while in the house.)

Elan trackpad and l2c keyboard i believe as well.

 

1.  Keyboard stops working while setting up user information.  Will try another solution to see if i can get this working properly.

2. I have followed the tutorials up to the step where it says to copy the efi folder for skylake, coffeelake for notebooks to /volumes/EFi and such a folder doesnt exist - am i supposed to install the clover bootloader first to see the EFI volume?   

3.  As I mentioned above - i have intel UHD 630 graphics.  how do i get proper graphics accelleration on this integrated graphics unit.   I understand my Nvidia card is not supported in anything higher than high sierra?   

 

Please let me know how to remedy the first few issues, then ill be able to get the DSDT process set.
