Introduction
Installing OS X on this machine is not easy so keep in mind that you won’t be able to use your machine for a while during the installation process. I aimed to make this guide as simple as possible and explain all steps really thorough and mistake-proof. It should be possible even for Hackintosh virgin to make it to the end. This guide is assuming you want to install both - OS X and Windows on the same drive. Good news is that system seems really stable (not a single freeze yet) and everything important is working properly. CPU scaling and turbo mode works perfectly as far as I can say. Geekbench score for my configuration is 3334/12265 points which is pretty close to the Windows result. Battery life is also pretty decent - I get around 5 hours of juice while browsing the internet and watching some Youtube videos with medium backlight. This is probably even a little bit better than in Windows due to Nvidia graphics being disabled completely.
Ready to give it a shot? Ok I wish you happy Hackintoshing!



What Is Not Working
- Nvidia Graphics (Mac is not for gaming anyway right?)
- SD card slot (I didn’t bother with this one. Perhaps there is a kext to enable it. Feel free to test it and post the results. I can add it to the guide.)
- Stock Wi-fi (Get a compatible Wi-fi card or use only ethernet to connect to the Internet.)

Note: You don’t have to remove the stock Wi-fi to install OS X
- Booting with 2 displays connected (Disconnect HDMI when booting or close the lid right after selecting OsX in Clover)
- Boothing without and adapter connected (Some users can boot only with adapter connected and some only without)
- Touchpad driver is bad for normal use (Moving the arrow works but soft-click doesn't work and hard-click works only if the cursor is still)


!!! Always backup data you don’t want to loose. I take no responsibility for damaging your computer or lost data. This guide will lead you to do a “clean installation” which means formatting your main drive is necessary !!!

References

Most of the Information here can also be found in those guides. If you are stuck with a problem try to search in there first

[Guide] Dell Inspiron 15 7559 (Skylake, i7-6700HQ, Intel HD 530) Using Clover (Thanks to dodvip123)
[Guide] Booting the OS X installer on LAPTOPS with Clover (Thanks to Rehabman)
[Guide] Patching LAPTOP DSDT/SSDTs

[Guide] Native Power Management for Laptops

My Exact Specifications
CPU: i7 6700HQ (i5 6300HQ is covered too)
Graphics: HD 530 + Nvidia GTX 960m (4Gb)
Wifi/BT: BCM94352Z
1080p screen (4K screen also covered in the guide)
RAM: 16 Gb DDR3L
Storage: 250Gb M.2 SSD Samsung EVO + 1 Tb original Sata SSHD
BIOS: 1.2.0


1) What You Need Before Diving Into The Hacking Process
- 2 USB Flash Drives (8Gb USB3.0 worked for me but you might need to use USB2.0 or a larger drive)
- Access to another Mac or Hackintosh
- Compatible wifi card (In installer there is a kext included to allow BCM94352Z wifi card)

Note: If you don’t have a compatible wifi card you can still use ethernet to access the internet
- Lots of patience

2) Pre-Installation Setup Of Your Hackintosh
- Please make sure you have only one hard drive inserted during the installation process (In my case only Samsung SSD. You can insert 2nd. HDD later)
- Update to BIOS 1.2.0 (if there is a newer one it could work too)
- Reboot and press F2 to get into BIOS setup
- Restore BIOS defaults
- AHCI mode should be selected under SATA
- Disable VT for direct I/O
- Advanced Battery Charging should be disabled
- Secure boot should be disabled
- turn off SupportAssist System Resolution (this will disable the occasional hardware check that prevents booting)
- Firmware TPM should be disabled (tip from basfun and jcarcinogen)
- Load Legacy Option Rom (I have it disabled but it might help you to boot if you have troubles with it. Also you need this enabled if you want to use Legacy Windows installation.)
- Save the settings and reboot
- Press F12 on boot screen and under other options disable Pheriperial Device Setting (OPROM Setting)

Note: If it’s disabled you shouldn’t see any Legacy options under “F12 screen”

3) Creating Windows Install USB
- Create the UEFI Windows 10 Install USB using any method. I recommend to use the one directly from Microsoft
Note: You can use another version of Windows too if you want. It’s recommended to check if the installer is correct by booting from it now
- Exit the Windows Installation - we will install OsX first


4) Preparing USB Installation Drive On A Real Mac
- Go to app store and download El Capitan install app
- Plug in the USB drive and open Disk Utility
- In Disk Utility highlight the USB, erase it and name it: USB (important)
Note: If next step doesn’t work you might need to partition this drive as well —> In Disk Utility highlight the drive again and Select: 1 Partition, format Mac OS Extended (Journaled), in options select GUID Partition Table and name it USB (important for next step)
- Now open terminal and run this command to copy installation files on the USB (Note: Write password when prompted. This step assumes your El Capitan install app is already downloaded in your app folder)​

Code:
sudo "/Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath "/Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app" --nointeraction
Note: This operation takes some time depending on the speed of your USB (5-40min usually)
- Download “Dell_7559_files.zip” attached to this post end unzip it on your desktop
- Download Clover Configurator (Vibrant Edition) and place it on your desktop too
- Type: “diskutil list” in terminal and find the Identifier of your EFI folder on your USB install drive (for me it’s disk2s1)
- You will need those files on your Hackintosh later on so put them on your USB too (to the partition with Install OsX app)
- Open Clover Configurator and click on “Mount EFI partition”, then click on it again (bottom right) and choose your EFI partition on the USB drive
Warning: You must be 100% sure that you opened the EFI partition on USB and not the one on your boot HDD (It should be empty)! You might screw up your ability to boot if you rewrite EFI partition on your boot drive!
- Open the mounted EFI partition and copy the EFI (Boot into installer2) folder from the “Dell_7559_files” folder on your desktop
- Rename the copied folder to “EFI
- Now you finished creating your Installation USB. Great!

Note: If you have 4K screen first you want to replace all config.plist files there with the files in Dell_7559_files/4K screen (eg. Dell_7559_files/4K Screen/config (Boot after installed2).plist replaces Dell_7559_files/EFI (Boot into installer2)/CLOVER/config.plist). Do this for other config.plist files too so you don´t have to do it later on


5) Installing El Capitan To Your HDD/SSD
- Make sure you have completed the “Pre-installation setup” part described above (Correct BIOS settings, only one HDD)
- Unplug everything from your Hackintosh except power adapter (if you have troubles booting see the troubleshooting below)
- Plug in the Install USB to your Hackintosh to be and press F12 during the boot to go into boot options
- Select your USB under UEFI boot options and press enter —> Clover boot loader should show up
- Select “Boot OS X Install from Install OS X El Capitan” (Verbose mode for debugging is already enabled in config.plist arguments)
--> You should see a lot o lines of text on black screen and after that The install screen should show up

Troubleshooting - If you are unable to boot into the installer see this part:

OsxAptioFixDrv: Starting overides for System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
Using Reloc block: no, Hibernate wake: no


A lot of users gets stuck seeing only theese two lines of text. If you are one of them then turn off the Hackintosh by pressing the power button. This problem is probably caused by the wrong BIOS settings or incorrect USB Installer. I suggest to try this options to get into the installer (Arranged by likelihood to help)


- Check your BIOS settings if they are exactly as described above and if you have the correct BIOS version

- Try to enable/disable the OPROM setting (by pressing F12 during the boot process under “Other options”)
- Disable Firmware TPM in BIOS
- Try booting with/without adapter plugged in
- Try to connect the install USB to the different USB ports
- Try USB2.0 or USB3.0 Install USBs
- Try to install different version of BIOS
- Try to connect USB mouse/keyboard before booting
- Try switching the RAM slots ("crackself" reported that switching from slot A to slot B helped)


Now you booted into the Installer and we need to prepare the drive you want to install OsX and Windows on. This part assumes you want to do a dual-boot on the same drive (great if you have an SSD). If you don’t want to make a dual-boot you can create just one partition on your drive (explained below)

- Agree to the terms of use and open Disk Utility
- Highlight the disk you want to install on and erase it (use options: OS X Extended (Journaled) and GUID Partition Map. Don’t change the name yet)
- Now click on Partition and drag the white circle to adjust your partition sizes to fit your needs (I chose 140Gb for OsX and 110Gb for Windows. I do not recommend to make partitions smaller than 50Gb)
- Click on the partitions to change their names (I call the bigger one “OsX” and the smaller one “Windows”)
- Leave the default format “OS X Extended (Journaled)”, click Apply and close the Disk Utility

Optional: Check if you created the correct EFI partition. (In Utilities on the top bar open Terminal and type “diskutil list”. You should see 209,7 Mb EFI partition on the disk you just created). Close terminal to continue installation if this is correct.
- Install OsX, Continue, Agree, Agree
- Highlight the partition you want to install OsX on and click Install
Note: This process can take up to 40 minutes if you have a really slow USB drive and it ofter hangs right at the end. Make yourself a coffee or watch some funny videos with cats. If you’re stuck at “about a second remaining” leave it be. It took me about another 15 minutes for the computer to restart. If you are stuck here for more than hour you can shut down the computer by long-pressing the power button.

Now there are 3 cases that might happen

Case 1: Your computer reboots and you see the Clover bootloader. In this Case select “Boot Mac OS X from OsX” if this option is available. Your Installation will continue and you get into the “Setup your mac screen”.

Case 2
: Your computer will not boot after this so you have to boot from the USB again. 2a) Select “Boot Mac OS X from OsX” if available 2b) select “Boot OS X Install from Install OS X El Capitan” if the first option is not available. In the 2b) case the Installation process should automatically continue and then you get to “Setup your mac screen” as well.
Case 3 (Thanks to manoj.admlab): Your computer will not boot after this so you have to change EFI partition on your Install USB drive
- Plug the Install USB back to the Real Mac
- Mount EFI partition with Clover Configurator and open it
- Replace the EFI folder there with the one from the Dell files called “EFI (Boot after installed2)
- Rename the folder to EFI again
- Put the USB back to the Hackintosh and boot into your installed El Capitan then you get to “Setup your mac screen” as well

--> “Setup your mac screen” should appear. Finish it as you like and Shut down your Hackintosh

Congratulations!!! Unfortunately there is still a long way to go to make everything work correctly. Now it’s time to install Windows.


6) Windows Installation
- Plug in the Windows Installer USB and boot it (F12 - UEFI boot options)
- Choose advanced settings - we need to setup your disk now
- Find the partition you created for Windows before (Hint: search for the partition size. Free space of this partition should be 0 and the type should be primary)
- Highlight this partition and delete it —> this will create Unallocated space on the disk
- Highlight Unallocated space, click “New” and “Apply” and “OK” to create new NTFS partition for Windows
- Install Windows on this partition
Note: This operation will fail if you had 2 disks connected. Give yourself a slap for not following the guide exactly and start over again after you removed the 2nd. drive.
Recommendation: After Windows Install is done do not use express settings and use advanced instead. These options can allow you to deny Microsoft from stalking your computer. (Personally I turn everything off except Smart Screen).
I also recommend not to install Windows drivers and apps yet in case you need to reinstall again.
- Turn off your PC after you got to the Windows desktop

Congratulations again!!! Now It’s time for Post-installation of your new Hackintosh to make sure everything works as it should and you get as stable system as possible.


7a) Post-Installation
- Plug the Install USB back to the Real Mac
- Mount EFI partition with Clover Configurator and open it
- Replace the EFI folder there with the one from the Dell files called “EFI (Boot after installed2)
- Rename the folder to EFI again
- Put the USB back to the Hackintosh and boot into your installed El Capitan
Note: Some of the post-installation process requires internet connection so you might just plug in the ethernet cable now or use the compatible wifi card and connect to the network
- Open KextBeast and Install all kexts from “Dell_7559_files/kexts” folder. Read the instructions provided and install them into “/System/Library/Extensions
- In terminal type: “diskutil list” and look for the EFI partition IDENTIFIER (The EFI partition of your system disk)



- Mount this partition using Clover Configurator (explained before)
- Delete the CLOVER folder and replace it with the one from Dell_7559_files/EFI (Boot after installed2)
Note: Now you should be able to boot from the disk without your USB. You still need to use F12 to do that - We will deal with that at the end.

7b) Patching DSDT And SSDTs
This part of the guide is the most challenging one. Read carefully and be patient. You’re almost done. Now we need to patch your DSDT and SSDTs to make sure the CPU, graphics, sound and other features of this laptop are set correctly according to the hardware.

- Turn on your Hackintosh. You should see the Clover bootloader.
- Highlight the OS X disk and press “F4” to generate the native ACPI files. (Note: You won’t see anything while pressing F4 - the files are generated silently)
- Boot OS X and mount EFI partition with Clover Configurator
- Go to “EFI/Clover/ACPI/” and copy the “origin” folder you just created to your desktop
- Delete all files from the folder on your desktop that doesn’t start with DSDT or SSDT
- Copy “Dell_7559_files/refs.txt” into this folder (not shown in the photo below)
--> Now the folder should look like this


- Download “IASL.zip” to your downloads folder
- Open terminal and run this command (password will be prompted)
Code:
cd ~/Downloads unzip iasl.zip
sudo cp iasl /usr/bin
- Copy the code below into the terminal to disassemble those files into the form we can edit (use your account name in the code)
Code:
cd /Users/Your account name/Desktop/origin
iasl -da -dl -fe refs.txt *.aml
--> This command will create “**DT.dsl” files in the origin folder

7c) DSDT Patching
- Download newest MaciASL to your desktop and unzip it and put it into your Applications folder
- Open DSDT.dsl (from your origin folder) in MaciASL
- Go to the MaciASL --> preferences and add this source (name it whatever you want)
Code:
http://raw.github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/master
Note: Now we are going to edit this file and compile it back again to use it to load with your system later. It is really important that you don’t make mistake here. You can click on “Compile” to check if you extracted the DSL files correctly. Warnings doesn’t matter but errors do. If you got an error here it means you disassembled the files wrong. Now there are many edits which we are going to do with this file. After each one you can click on “Compile” to check for errors.

- Go to Patches —> find [syn] Rename _DSM methods to XDSM —> Click it twice and apply it —> Try to compile the file to check for errors
- Go to Patches —> find [igpu] Rename GFX0 to IGPU —> the same

For the next patches I’m going to use part of the other Dell 7559 guide. Credits for this part goes to dodvip123. You can see the whole guide here.

- Search for ‘HECI’ and replace all with ‘IMEI’


- Search for ‘HDAS’ and replace all with ‘HDEF’

//optional: disable nvidia for better battery (advised)

- Add these lines above the other External lines at the beginning:
Code:
External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3, MethodObj)
External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0, MethodObj)
External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF, MethodObj)
External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON, MethodObj)
External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF, MethodObj)
External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON, MethodObj)


- Search for ‘_WAK’ and add these methods above Method (_WAK):
Code:
Method (M_ON, 0, NotSerialized)
    {
        If (CondRefOf (\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON))
        {
            \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON()
        }
        If (CondRefOf (\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0))
        {
            \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0()
        }
        If (CondRefOf (\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON))
        {
            \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON()
        }
    }
Code:
Method (M_OF, 0, NotSerialized)
    {
        If (CondRefOf (\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF))
        {
            \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF()
        }
        If (CondRefOf (\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3))
        {
            \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3()
        }
        If (CondRefOf (\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF))
        {
            \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF()
        }
    }
- Add this line right after the opening bracket of Method (_WAK):

Code:
M_OF ()


- Search for ‘Method (_PTS’ and add this line right after the opening bracket of Method (_PTS):
Code:
M_ON ()
- Search for the ’Method (_INI’ and find the correct one where there are references to other OSes below it (Mine was on line 17912). Add this line between Store (….) and If (…..(..)):

Code:
M_OF ()



- Click on Patch and apply the following patches:
    • [Audio] Audio Layout 3
    • [bat] Dell Inspiron 15-7xxx
    • [igpu] Brightness fix
    • [sys] IRQ fix
    • [sys] Skylake LPC
    • [usb] USB3_PRW 0x6D Skylake
Click Compile and if you have any errors (warnings don’t matter) try again. Save the file as: DSDT.aml in a new folder on desktop called “SSDTs” and file format: ACPI Machine Language Binary.

7d) SSDT Patching
- Open SSDT-5.dsl
- Apply [igpu] Rename GFX0 to IGPU patch
-Click Compile and if you have any errors (warnings don’t matter) clear them by using the patching guide above. Save the file as: SSDT-5.aml in a folder on desktop called “SSDTs” and file format: ACPI Machine Language Binary
- Open SSDT-15.dsl and do the same
- Go to the “origin” folder on your desktop and copy the “SSDT-*.aml” files (the ones without -x that you haven’t modified) to your SSDTs folder.
- Go to the “Dell_7559_files” and copy SSDT-UIAC.aml to SSDTs folder too
--> You should now have these *.aml files without errors in your SSDTs folder on desktop. If the patched ones are missing .aml add it.

DSDT.aml (patched)
SSDT.aml (we will create this one after a reboot)
SSDT-0.aml
SSDT-1.aml
SSDT-2.aml
SSDT-3.aml
SSDT-4.aml
SSDT-5.aml (patched)
SSDT-6.aml
SSDT-14.aml
SSDT-15.aml (patched)
SSDT-UIAC.aml


Check the photo if you got this right​



- Open Clover Configurator and mount internal EFI. Open EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/ and place all your *.aml files here
- Replace config.plist in EFI/Clover with the one from Desktop/Dell_7559_files
- Open the EFI/Clover/config.plist with Clover Configurator. Go to the section SMBIOS and click the magic wand icon. Choose the MacBook icon and select MacBook 11,1 in the dropdown menu. Shake a few times with the Week and Unit until you find a Serial that’s not valid (means it isn’t used yet by an official Mac). You can check that here: Check Your Service and Support Coverage - Apple Support


7e) SSDT.aml Creation
This is the last file we need to create to ensure proper CPU power management and turbo mode. This part refers to [Guide] Native Power Management for Laptops. If you have troubles with creating ssdt.aml you can check there.

- To prepare we need to use this code in terminal (this will download the SSDT generator)
Code:
curl -o ~/ssdtPRGen.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh/Beta/ssdtPRGen.sh
- Now enter this code to give the program permissions
Code:
chmod +x ~/ssdtPRGen.sh
- If you have i7 6700HQ processor use this code​
Code:
./ssdtPRGen.sh -p 'i7-6700HQ' -f 2600 -turbo 3500
- If you have i5 6300HQ processor use this code
Code:
./ssdtPRGen.sh -p 'i5-6300HQ' -f 2300 -turbo 3200
- After the warning type “y” to continue (You should see only one Warning and one Error. If you get more you should check if your SMBIOS is right). Then type “ntwice to finish the process

- Copy this command to move the created SSDT to your desktop folder (Note: This is easier because the file is in hidden folder. You have to change the username in the code for it to work)
Code:
cp /Users/Insert your username here/Library/ssdtPRGen/ssdt.aml /Users/Insert your username here/Desktop/SSDTs/SSDT.aml
--> SSDT.aml should appear in Desktop/SSDTs
- Copy SSDT.aml to EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/
- Shut down your Hackintosh


8) Choose Clover To Be Your Default Boot Option
- Turn of your Hackintosh and enter BIOS settings (Press F2 on boot)
- Go to Boot section and choose “Add Boot Option” —> Choose your system disk —> Navigate to “EFI/Clover” —> Choose “CLOVERX64.efi” and name it “CLOVER



- In Boot Order Priorities choose Clover as #1 —> It should look something like this



- Turn off your Hackintosh

Note: From now on you will be able to boot without using F12. Sometimes BIOS fails to boot into Clover even though we just set it. If this happens you can either use F12 to boot or you can repeat this step by deleting the Clover entry and creating a new one. I’m not really sure why this happens but it seems that any change in EFI partition may cause this or maybe even some Windows updates. That’s why we do this as a last thing as all the edits of EFI folder are done.


9) Fix Clock Under Windows
As both OSes are expecting different BIOS time you need to fix this under Windows.
- Press “Winkey+R” and run “regedit
- Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation\
- Create a new DWORD 32 key and call it “RealTimeIsUniversal
- Double click on the key you created and set it’s value to 1
After rebooting the clock should be fixed


10) Optional: Change Clover Theme
- Mount internal EFI partition and open config.plist in Clover configurator
- Go to Tools/Themes and select Load themes (bottom right)
- Pick the theme you like
- Make sure internal EFI partition is selected. Click on “Download/ApplyNVRAM
Note: You need to have Xcode installed to do this. You can download and install it from app store - it’s free


CONGRATULATIONS! You Have Done It!
I hope this was a painless process and this guide saved you some time
Feel free to ask for corrections if you find any mistake (please be specific about it)
Special thanks to Rehabman, dodvip123 and to other guys from tonymacX86 that allowed this guide to happen by creating tools and guides

Good guide. I had to disable "Firmware TPM" in the bios settings to get past the 2 first lines as basfun said.

I also was getting an occasional error when shutting down which would initiate a memory check by the bios. I found that I also had to patch/recompile/save SSDT-1.aml, SSDT-3.aml, SSDT-6.aml from the .dsl's in my case and that issue seems to have gone away. So, suggesting compiling/saving all of the .aml's instead of using some of the "clover origin" ones might be a good idea.

So you think that you don´t boot into Clover but boot into the "Dell hardware check tool" because of not compiling all the *.AMLs? It shouldn´t be influenced by that. For me it seems that I get into this screen everytime I change something in EFI folder. If I leave it be it always boots fine. If anyone can confirm your hypothesis I will add it to the guide too. So far it works good for me with the original AMLs.

Cool. Go for it and please confirm if everything works according to the guide or you had to do some changes.

Cool. Go for it and please confirm if everything works according to the guide or you had to do some changes.
Okay! I just finished the guide, but I have just one problem, Windows partition doesn't appears on Clover's Boot Menu. Any ideas?

[EDIT] It was my fault deleting Microsoft's EFI Folder... Idk what to do now.

Did you do everything as it is in the guide? I've just done it and everything works correctly...

Thanks for the tip. I added if in the guide :)

So you think that you don´t boot into Clover but boot into the "Dell hardware check tool" because of not compiling all the *.AMLs? It shouldn´t be influenced by that. For me it seems that I get into this screen everytime I change something in EFI folder. If I leave it be it always boots fine. If anyone can confirm your hypothesis I will add it to the guide too. So far it works good for me with the original AMLs.

I can't solve my issue (can't boot into Windows) because I actually deleted Microsoft's EFI folder from the EFI partition so, could you please upload your Microsoft EFI folder? I mean, zip the whole folder that is in EFI\. I'll be so thankfull
