Gigabyte Aero 15-W 10.14.0
After a while, I finally completed my Aero 15 Hackintosh journey.
I am busy at research and work...so this really took a while.
I just want to share what I did, and hopefully, it will help someone.

So this guide might give you inspiration on what you want to do next.

I created a repository on Github, and if you want you can clone the repository here:
https://github.com/Errrneist/Hackintosh-Aero-15W
I check my Github more often than here, so please post issues or other stuff on Github, as well as here. This will help the community and people around the world a lot! And more contribution means a better hackintosh for everyone!

[20180707] DO NOT ENABLE FILEVAULT DURING THE INSTALL!!! 100% DAMAGE GUARANTEED.

[20180927] macOS 10.14.0 is a safe update. All users are recommended to update to this version of macOS. Release: https://github.com/Errrneist/Hackintosh-Aero-15W/releases/tag/v10.14.0


My Configuration is :
CPU: i7-7700HQ @2.8GHz
IGPU: HD630
DGPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1060 (Disabled)
Wifi: BCM94360BAED
RAM: 16GB DDR4 2400 SODIMM
Screen: FHD 15'
SSD1: Liteon SATA SSD 512GB (10.13.1)
SSD2: Toshiba XG3 1TB (Windows 10)
Ethernet: Intel Ethernet Controller


Webcam works. Haven't checked the video output ports yet, since I don't have an external monitor. The battery drains a bit faster than windows, but it still got about a decent 3-4 hour use time. (8 hours on windows, incredible) So... there you have it! Have fun!

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.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html
The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ:
"Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"

Hello RehabMan, thx a lot for ask me.

I follow all guides, and I can use Hackintosh correctly, my problem is with Kext, I think. I tried install with console, with utility kext, with multicast, and nothing change. I try to install this kext "https://github.com/Errrneist/Aero-15-Hackintosh" but I don't know why don't work.

Sry for my English, I am Spanish.

You must be specific regarding the problem, and you must attach problem reporting files.

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

I changed the wifi card to BCM943602BAED. The intel wireless card came with the laptop doesn't work.

BCM943602BAED has a native support in 10.13. No kext or patch should be applied.
