Hello there hackintoshers, Asus Vivobook S550CM is a quite old machine, yet I made macOS X Sierra 10.12.6 successful installation with everything working status​

Machine Info:
Asus Vivobook S550CM
CPU: Intel core i5 3317 Ivy Bridge Processor
GPU: Intel HD 4000
Ram: 6GB 1600mhz
Wifi Card: Atheros 9285 wifi card (Intel Wifi card not supported so replaced with this card, cheap replacement)
Audio Codec: ALC 270 v2 (Patched AppleHDA via AppleHDA Patcher)

Working:
Wifi
Audio (AppleHDA)
Graphics(Intel HD 4000, Nvidia disabled)
Screen touch (Single touch, not multitouch)
Touchpad
USB 2.0/3.0
Battery Stats (DSDT patches applied)
DVD Rom
Integrated Camera
Brightness Slider (DSDT patch from Rehabman)
Sleep


Not Working:
–Nvidia Geforce GT 635m (May work never)
–Fn Keys (Actually I didnt try to fix, it can be! )

What I needed to install:
I made my pendrive bootable on Windows 10 via Win32DiskImager software, downloaded the Sierra image file from a site. In your case use my clover folder after you make your pendrive bootable.

Bootloader:
Am using Clover 4185 UEFI bootloader

Patching:
I used Rehabman's DSDT patching guides and repos. Used Graphics – ig-platform-id – 0x01660003 for enabling Intel HD 4000 to work in config.plist

BIOS Setup Configuration

– Intel Virtualization Technology: Disabled
– VT-d: Disabled
– USB Configuration: Set Auto :: XHCI Pre-Boot Mode: Disabled
– Secure boot: Disabled
– Video memory on Bios: 64MB (Must set to 64MB dont set it higher)

Setting up bootloader if you are running Windows as well:
Follow this link to setup Clover manually: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/310038-manually-install-clover-in-windows/

Battery Stats fix: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-how-to-patch-dsdt-for-working-battery-status.116102/



Sharing my EFI/Clover folder for who are willing to try OS X 10.12.6

Big thanks to Rehabman for everything I got now
