- Acer Nitro 5 (Clover UEFI)
- GTX 1050 Ti 4GB @ 1920x1080 / HD 630
The fact that you have to ask that question suggests that you are not reading the Clover guide. I cannot just give you my EFI folder because it is configured for my specific Acer Nitro 5. Even if they are the same Brand and model name, there are differences that will throw your machine off. Like the fact that you have an 8th Gen Core-i5 and I have a 7th Gen. The chipset and other hardware is different. You have a GTX 1050 and I have a 1050 Ti. (Which depending on how your bios is set up, may require different patching to disable the nVidia chip.)What folder should I put those EFI files in?
You must also make sure you have the latest BIOS installed. It may improve compatibility and this would prevent you from having to re-patch your DSDT immediately after you install macOS. Not to mention the fact that you will more than likely have to switch out the WiFi/BT module that is pre installed because it is not compatible with macOS.
It goes without saying that you need to have the USB drive and the BIOS settings configured correctly for the installer to boot. For starters, you have the files that belong in the driversUEFI64 inside the kexts folder. AFPS.EFI also belongs in the driversUEFI64 folder. The kexts that are recommended in the Clover guide also belong in EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other folder. you can delete all of the other folders in the kexts folder besides the Other folder.
Please read the Clover guide thoroughly and reconfigure your USB drive. The first page of this thread also described what was done and kexts that were used to activate certain hardware. Please understand that not every option will work for you as manufacturers will use different hardware between different models and revisions. Please tailor your USB to YOUR specific machine.
