Hackintosh is so difficult :?::cry:

Could you tell me if the below settings are correct? I don't have the OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi thingy...
I'm installing Clover legacy to MBR USB 8G/ 2 partitions. My PC will be booted on MBR hard drive of windows 7 system, and 2nd drive(GPT) for OSX

You cannot install OS X to MBR. The OS X/macOS installer requires GPT.
OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi is available in 'Drivers64UEFI'.

It's legacy, Sir.

Your profile indicates Clover UEFI. If you're using Clover legacy, your Mobo (in profile) should read "HP Pavillion DV7-6135 (Clover legacy).

drivers64UEFI content is not applicable to Clover legacy.

Thank you Sir Rehabman and feartech for helping to clearify. It is really helpful and I understand better now.
Also, I'll be passing High Sierra cuz according to AppleSupport on Twitter a major bug was discovered that anyone can use root as username to bypass password... I just tested and successfully unlocked system and security with "root" with empty password...

Now download High Sierra from App Store only get a 13MB installer app, not full installation app. Does this guide cover this scenario?

Delete all copies (even from the trash), then re-download.

It seems something changed.
I have tested on two 10.11.6 working hack build, download Install macOS High Sierra.app from App Store, only get a 13MB installer, whin 1 minute download complete. And I have tried more than 10 times delete it, then re-download it:
Code:
$ sudo rm -r /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app
But I always get a 13MB installer.
It seems App Store not provide full installation app now...

No problem here. Just downloaded a complete installer a minute ago...

Neither really.
Read post #2. Your question regarding installing kexts is answered there.

Hello again :)
Trying to install macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on Lenovo u430p /w discrete graphics;
Got garbled installer screen with working (and normal-looking) mouse pointer. Clicks seems to open topBar menus, etc.;
I've tried both config.plist: config_install.plist from discrete manual by RehabMan, and from this topic (config_HD4600_4400_4200.plist) with same result;
Tried https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/fix-resolve-boot-screen-garble.175799/ with no luck;
Open/closing lid does not help, as it helped here
Screenshot and clover config are in attachment
