My Optiplex 3060 micro spec is :
  • Processor i3 8100T,
  • 8 GB DDR4 single channel memory
  • 500GB samsung evo pro 970 SSD.
  • 500GB Hdd for Windows 10
  • Intel HD Graphics 630
  • Internal audio : ALC3234
  • Realtek RTL 8111HSD-CG Gigabit Ethernet LAN 10/100/1000 Mb/s
  • Chipset : H370
  • Dell DW1820A wifi and bluetooth card.
The only problem is you cannot set the DVMT value in the bios menu, so I just add some properties in the devices menu for the igpu to make it work.

GPU acceleration is working
HDMI port is working
HDMI audio is working
All usb is working USB 3.0 and 2.0
Sound inject 13,18,27,30,31 choose base on what you need. Some ports are working some are not.
Internal speaker is working
Ethernet is working
Shutdown is working
Display sleep / wake is working
Dual Boot is working
4K is working with BIOS patch, 30Hz with HDMI, 60Hz with DP.
iCloud is working
iMessage is working
Apps Store is working
Wifi & Bluetooth is working flawlessly

unplug the HDD before you install the OS X to make sure that you install to the correct SSD

If you are working with 1080p monitor, just stay away from this fix. Only do this if you really need 4k!

To make it work with 4K monitor you have to edit the BIOS by yourself. WARNING!!! DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK. THIS METHOD IS FOR THE DELL OPTIPLEX 3060 MFF only (it might work with SFF or MT but check your BIOS before you do this). It might brick your machine.
  • Create a bootable USB with EFI Shell
    • Format a USB 2.0 Stick as FAT32 with MBR named EFI
    • Create /EFI/BOOT/
    • copy BOOTX64.efi into that folder
  • Boot with it
  • on grub command type : setup_var 0x8DC to check the current value it should be 0x01
  • Change to 0x02 by typing : setup_var 0x8DC 0x2
  • Check the value again : setup_var 0x8DC make sure that it is 0x02
  • Reboot!
After successfully boot, edit the config.plist with clover configurator delete the framebuffer-stolenmem, framebuffer-fbmem and the enable-hdmi20. Reboot again, and set your 4k display resolution in the display preference.

You can have 4K @ 30Hz with the HDMI port and 4K @ 60Hz with the Display Port.

Today I received my dell DW1820A wifi and bluetooth card, after I plugged it in the wifi is working natively but the bluetooth in not working at all. I saw in the system information there is a usb broadcom device is active. After a google search I found that I need to install 3 kext to make it work. Here is the link : https://github.com/acidanthera/BrcmPatchRAM/releases
After that kext install the bluetooth is working great. So I have perfectly working dell hackintosh mac mini.
