Hi man, wonderful guide.
Do you have a solid state drive ?
How much time can you boot the system ?
Sorry that I answer only now, but surprisingly I got no Mail at all about ne Posts in my Thread here..

Thank you, nice to know it's appreciated.
No, I had planned to install a SSD, but haven't since.
Boot Time is about 45 sec to 1 min, but once it's up it's pretty good concerning the operation speed, also I upgraded my RAM to 8GB from 4GB.

@RehabMan, thx for replying to all the messages here, if I had gotten any mails I would have replied myself, now after resubscribing I should finally get notified.
And I have to say, thank you, for being probably the most helpful person in this Forum. :thumbup:
Although I'm wondering what you do for a living, that you can spend so much time replying to users here.

Greetings

My Laptop is very different to yours, except the CPU. It's nice, that my Clover files helped you, but you should at least create your own DSDT for your Laptop, since they are definitely not compatible (best would be if you also create all the other necessary SSDTs by yourself, this would be a much cleaner System).
Concerning Sound you should first try to find out which Soundchip/codec your laptop uses. You can do this by searching for Datasheets on Google (it has to be exactly your laptop) and in the data sheet search for a soundchip or soundcodec.
If you found the Name of the chip or codec you can verify, that Multibeast supports it.
If your Codec can't be found in Multibeast you probably have to use VoodooHDA (or search on other Hackintosh Websites for a fitting HDA Kext).

Hi,
I have Asus X550vc with the same CPU. So I have created USB stick with your guide, but have got a problem. When I tried to boot with clover i had kernel panic (something about CPU) so I booted with npci=0x2000 but stuck here. Can you help me bro?

First, please don't call me "bro".
Second, Try to boot with NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in the Kext Folder of your USB Stick.
It is also important, that you don't use my DSDT or SSDT, because although you have the same CPU your System still is very different to mine.
You have to create your own DSDT and SSDT for your System. Best is you follow Rehabmans Guide on doing this: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-patching-laptop-dsdt-ssdts.152573/
Also Sierra sucks, if you currently try to install it (That's why I haven't updated my Guide for Sierra). Sleep won't work (at least I haven't found a fix), touchpad using VoodooPS2 is a little bit broken and some other things, so I recommend using El Capitan (under El Capitan everything worked fine).
First try to get your System booting, doesn't matter how, just so you can use it.
Then try to Patch DSDT and your SSDTs following the Guide.

I have installed el captina after some crashes and everything works, but my battery doesn't. I see battery icon with the cross inside. I have the same CPU like you so I'm using your DSDT and SSDT :/ Do you have some patched kext or something? Do you know how to solve this issue?

Okay, I`m really sorry theandy :/ Okay, but I don`t have any informations about my CPU so I cannot do that. Why your DSDT and SSDT not work? We have the same CPU. ... Okay, I understand, i have to do it without any help :) So thank you and sorry for loosing your time.

Regards.
