Ok, redoing it using unibeast. I'm assuming my laptop is similar to the ones here. That's why I'm posting.
unibeast is for desktops

Read up on the FAQ first:

Thanks guys, just not worth the aggravation. If there was a better guide for booting it on a laptop, I would do it. But it seems like a real pita, and there's not a real simple way. Thanks again.

if you want easy then maybe linux or windows would be better

hackintosh is not plug and play, you will need to learn new skills

Fewt,

Are the external volume buttons on the left-side of the laptop (next to the power button) supposed to work? I don't use them, but I didn't notice that they were under either the working or non-working section of the guide. They work fine under Ubuntu.

Also, seeing as how your card reader is disabled in BIOS, I doubt it's much of a concern for you, but is there any reason you've found for the SD card reader to not work? From the looks of it, it should be: Product ID 297 (0x0129) and Vendor ID of 3034 (0x0BDA) but I wasn't successful injecting these values in AppleUSBCardReader.kext using this guide https://noobsplanet.com/index.php?threads/fix-internal-external-card-reader-hackintosh-guide.32/

The external volume buttons aren't working, but I haven't spent a lot of time trying to trace the keys in the DSDT to correct them. I've tried several methods to get the SD card reader working, with no success at all including modifying the port configuration, patching the AppleUSBCardReader kext and creating a custom injector. It seems like it should be possible, but I haven't been able to get it working.

Unfortunately, no. There are threads for guides and help with installing macOS. This one has already been linked.
