What do you use for wifi ?
From praneeth instructions:
> If Wifi is important for you you will need a USB adapter or other card for that.
So I didn't bother with it and connected the PC with Ethernet.
Just wanted to thank you for this thread. Been following the hackintosh community for years, but just booted my first mackintosh with this guide.
Some updates with Dell 8700, Nvidia GT720 discrete graphics, and El Capitan.
1. Use Unibeast UEFI and Multibeast.
2. To get the installer to finish booting from the HD, you must disable nvidia graphics with (nv_disable=1)
3. Next install nvidia graphics web driver
4. You might need to use mac pixel clock patch to get the right resolution for your monitor if you're using the HDMI cable.
5. Get a new WiFi card for wifi.
hey, just to you dell 8700 owners an update.
I did a fresh install of sierra 10.12.1 and everything is even easier. GeForce 720 graphics drivers are installed by default. no need to install web drivers. also, there's no need for the macpixelclock patch when using hdmi cable.
Thank you for your input in this thread. I was able to successfully install Sierra on my 8700 without much fuss.
I did go the Unibeast route, since Clover would hang on boot. This route I was able to boot via UEFI and was up and running in about 10 mins.
Anyone got Clover worked out?
I gave Unibeast UEFI a try for Sierra (10.12 2), everything went fine, installed well, it boots past verbose mode, and loads halfway through the bar, add gets stuck there.
Never has this one before.
Ps, im on built-in GPU.
Edit: scratch that off, it booted after i pressed reply, which took about 15-20 minutes, pretty much for a brand new SSD.
I have my XPS 8700 running ok with Sierra, but I'm having two major issues with it.
1) When I wake from sleep almost always, my primary monitor will come out of sleep, but will within a few moments turn black again and act disconnected. I have to reboot every time my machine goes to sleep.
2) now and then it seems to freeze up and take a minute or two to recover. Especially if the screen saver ever kicks on.
I think its related to power management and was curious what other's conflig.plist looked like
