I used Multibeast in the post install. When inject Nvidia is enabled it show Geforce 880M 0MB. But, when it is disable it show Nvidia Chip Model 8MB. I have tried everything from FAQ for my wifi and bt driver. I have patched AirPortBcm4360 and installed BTFirmwareUpdate. Something is not right because I am not able to see any changes even after installing many kexts. Maybe kexts are conflicting. If you want, I can re install my macOS Sierra and then do as you say. I also have no idea about patching DSDTs. Thanks in advance.

No Intel graphics (wanted to check). You will need to do the appropriate research on Nvidia...

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

Mobo: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
Mobo: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

Note: When specifying your bootloader, if using Clover legacy, please be sure to specify "Clover legacy"). Specifying "Clover" will be assumed as "Clover UEFI"

I also think that I have chosen a wrong system definition. You can guide me from pre-installation to post. I am sorry for repeating, but i want to use hackintosh and I m a complete noob. I can probably do anything on windows but not on Mac and linux.
