Hello!

Tried installing Sierra 10.12.6 on my Dell Inspiron 7447. From what I see, Wi-Fi (on an Intel Wireless AC 3180 card) and Audio (WavesMaxx Pro) is not working.
Here are other details on the specs:
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 4710HQ 2.5GHz Quad-Core, 6MB Cache, Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz
  • RAM: 8GB DDR3-1600 (expandable up to 16GB RAM)
  • Storage: 1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX850M 4GB GDDR3/Intel HD4600
  • Display: 14.1″ IPS Full HD IPS Matte Non-Touch (1920×1080)
  • Connectivity: 802.11 b/g/n/ac Dual Band, Bluetooth 4.0
  • I/O Ports: 1 x HDMI 1.4a, 2 x USB 3.0 with PowerShare, 1 x USB 2.0 with PowerShare, 1 x SDXC Card Reader, 1 x 3.5mm Combo Jack
  • Battery: 65Whr 6-Cell Integrated Battery

Gave up easily on installation, maybe because it's already early morning from my place. Is my laptop compatible? What kexts or other modifications should I put in my flash disk for it to work correctly? What custom kexts should I install post-installation?

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide".
Here is a direct link, just to be clear:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing. Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.

The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ:
"Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"
