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:

Hi,
I am considering buying a new laptop and making it a Hackintosh. I will ask you the same question about the
It was hard to tell what works and does not work from your github page. Could you please saw if these work or not?
Power Management?
Trackpad?
Audio (with built-in speakers and microphone)?
HDMI?
Many thanks,
-r

Hello,
I own the same laptop, but with the newest BIOS update installed.
I tried your EFI of 10.14.0 for my 10.14.6, but it failed to boot, so I updated clover and it works. However all the usb-c devices can't be recognized until I changed to genericUSB.kext.

Then, for some reason, I decided to stay on high sierra, for which I downloaded your latest EFI, but it failed to boot the high sierra installer and shows a forbidden icon instead.

I'm so confused, do these problems have anything to do with the differences between our BIOS version? Or were these EFIs build for booting up MacOS rather than it's Installer?
BTW, do you remember which bios version your system stayed?
Here is a list of bios version I can download from gigabyte's site:
P65_BIOS_B05D05_EC_003 : 4/10/2017
P65_BIOS_B06D06_EC_005 : 7/31/2017
P65_BIOS_B08D08_EC_007 : 8/25/2017
P65_BIOS_B0BD0B_EC_008 : 2/2/2018
P65_BIOS_B0DD0D_EC_008 : 3/12/2018
P65_BIOS_B0ED0E_EC_008 : 7/31/2018

Is it killing you to tell how you fixed it ?
You post a long message to get help and only one sentence to tell the problem is fixed.. even tho I have no use for this, you can do it for other people browsing the forum. Thanks

This is exactly what I need. My only problem is that I can't boot in unless I disable hybrid graphics and then I only get 7 MB of VRAM. I am also not sure how you disabled you NVIDIA graphics card. I want my computer to still work mainly with Windows (my dual-boot). I only want MacOS so that I have access to Xcode.
