    [Guide] Dual boot Windows and Yosemite with Clover EFI Boot Loader on a Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G

    Hey, Sorry for the late reply. I was away for a few days. To be honest, I got the audio working once BUT it was really difficult and trial and error (I've since had to do several re-installs). I didn't document the process either so I have no notes. I have several really good USB gaming...

    [Guide] Dual boot Windows and Yosemite with Clover EFI Boot Loader on a Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G

    Hey Lyxandrah, Rehabman is correct. It is an M.2 / NGFF 2230. This is what it looks like https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0156DVQ7G/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 It is a Broadcom BCM94352Z. You can also get a DW1560 (that is the Dell model number). My trackpad just works with the kexts listed throughout...

    GTX 1060 notebook working but only hdmi out not the notebook screen

    hey joaocarlos13, I have the exact same laptop and I am interested in getting Sierra installed on this. What guide did you follow OR can you create a basic guide? There are many gaming laptops with the same specs and I'm sure others would benefit. Thanks

    Where can I get BCM94352Z

    Hey, I have the Dell DW1560 (dual notch) and the Lenovo version (single notch) and Windows refuses to recognize neither the Bluetooth portion nor the WiFi portion on both cards. In fact, when I go to Device Manager, normally when hardware is seen by Windows but no driver is installed, you get a...

    [Guide] Dual boot Windows and Yosemite with Clover EFI Boot Loader on a Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G

    Sorry for the late reply. I didn't receive an email notification about the new posts. Re: the wireless card. I simply replaced the existing card (Atheros) with a new one (Broadcom). The empty M.2 slot on the left side of the motherboard is for an M.2 SSD card. You can't place your wifi card...

    [Guide] Dual boot Windows and Yosemite with Clover EFI Boot Loader on a Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G

    Dumb question, but I gotta ask ... are you placing your patched files in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched?? I've seen people forget this simple but necessary step

    You technically can use it, but you'd have to use a Dremel tool and make the cut yourself. It's a risk, but others have done it successfully.

    Rehabman, Does this method survive any OSX update? Sounds like it does seeing as you are using the vanilla AppleHDA kext

    Rehabman, Does the headphone port(s) work with this kext? The kext that I am presently using works fine for the onboard speakers (nice and loud), but the sound off the headphone port has a weird echo (and it sounds like AM radio). Sounds like your kext is the better solution.

    ... Re: audio. There is a kext file I am using for the Realtek ALC 283. I've never posted up a kext file in this forum. Are we allowed to do that? I can share the one I am using (which is the only one that has worked for me, and I've tried several) Re: battery meter. No, I have never been...

    Where can I get BCM94352Z

    According to post # 22 of this thread, as of April 2015, they "seem" to be sending out the correct card. It must have been in one of the other hackintosh forum sites, but I remember several people ordered the Lenovo 20-200480 from Part Store and were getting the wrong card, but that was back in...

    Where can I get BCM94352Z

    I was in the same predicament as you since I don't live in the US either. As soon as these cards show up on ebay, you got to snatch one up right away. It took a couple of weeks for me to spot one. I use a service called US Unlocked to have a reloadable prepaid American Visa card. It was...

    Where can I get BCM94352Z

    These cards do come up on ebay from time to time, as mentioned. At one point, two different vendors were selling these cards simultaneously and one of the vendors (I think from Germany) had 3 of them in stock. If you don't want to wait for one to show up on ebay, I know some people have had...

    Where can I get BCM94352Z

    The Dell DW1560 is a A+E Key card (2 notches). This will work in an E key slot because one of the slots will line up perfectly. An E Key card such as the Lenovo 20-20048 (1 notch) will not work in an A key slot because it is missing one of the open notches (of course, you can Dremel it...someone...

    Where can I get BCM94352Z

    These cards are a PITA to find but not impossible. I found two of them on ebay. You just have to keep checking a few times per day. You can also setup an alert so that if one is listed you'll be notified. Be prepared to pay anywhere between $20-$80 on average. They are expensive because the...

    [Guide] Dual boot Windows and Yosemite with Clover EFI Boot Loader on a Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G

    I'm wondering if it has something to do with the M.2 format and A key vs. E key. The original Atheros card was an E key card. The Dell DW1560 is an A key. This Dell card, as mentioned, works perfectly in OSX, but for some reason not turning on in Windows. Maybe a BIOS feature OR a missing PIN on...

    Here is my Device instance path (it's not a perfect match, but the vendor and device IDs match): PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_43B1&SUBSYS_00191028&REV_03\ACD100FFFF00000100 May I ask where you got your Windows driver? I only went to official sources (eg. Dell, Lenovo, Acer). I don't like using...

    [Guide] Dual boot Windows and Yosemite with Clover EFI Boot Loader on a Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G

    Hey guys, Yeah, have a look. This is what I am seeing. There is no way to turn on Wifi (totally greyed out), no matter which driver I install (whether the auto-detected Windows driver or the Broadcom one from either Dell, Acer or Lenovo). If you look at Device Manager, Bluetooth is not even...

    [Guide] Dual boot Windows and Yosemite with Clover EFI Boot Loader on a Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G

    I am running Windows 8.1. I did buy a system builders/OEM copy of Windows 8.1 when I bought my new M.2 card. I wanted to have a nice clean version of Windows without all of the bloatware included with the Acer version. I just now tried to re-install just the Wifi driver. Installed fine and...
