can I get a full EFI folder for this laptop? I have the acer aspire VN7-591G which is practically the same laptop but with a 15" screen, I've been trying to get the keyboard to work and intel hd 4600 to register more than 7MB of ram but nothing has worked so far.

the trackpad is working without any additional drivers and I'm currently using an external keyboard

If you follow the guide, your graphics should be working:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also...
No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.164990/
Use the tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

I just tried the graphics guide and that produced the duplicated screen error that I've already seen online (changed to a working platform id which is still 7 mb ram) and now my ethernet is broken so I can't use the problem reporting script :(



I tried using the clover 10 file that the OP uploaded but I'm getting the duplicated screen issue again

I've attached it for reference

The keyboard and ethernet now work, the problem report is attached to this post and it was sent from the laptop!
I still have the 7mb problem though so everything is incredibly sluggish

The ig-platform-id you're using (0x0c260006) is not valid.
You should not expect working graphics without using a valid ig-platform-id.

I only used that to generate the report because the recommended ig-platform-id renders the system unusable (duplicate rendering)

okay I got the graphics "working" by injecting FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext and FakePCIID.kext with clover, I write "working" because it's not rendering apps correctly, I'm now using the recommended platform ID of 0x0a260006 is there anything else I need to inject? did I miss anything?



*****NOW WORKING, onto the next problem-Audio
and then msr editing to disable BD PROCHOT

Hey rehabman, thanks for you help so far, I've managed to get most things working up till now just due to your contributions, I'm currently facing a weird problem,

I'm trying to enable 2 finger scrolling (gestures) using this guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-to-fix-synaptics-on-sierra-10-12-x.227706/

and I'm encountering a kernel panic when using the ApplePs2SmarttTouchPad.kext

I've attached an image showing the kernel panic and a debug zip
kernel panic is for ApplePs2MouseDevice corrupting the registry.

For ApplePS2SmartTouchPad, you should report your issue to the author.
It is closed-source and violates the APSL, so I can not provide any support.
