Read post #2 of the guide. Again. Carefully.

Also, please fix your profile as per FAQ (all 7 requested details must be present in your profile).
omg really sorry its my fault not reading carefully, so this basically means when reinstall windows finished I simply use any disk tool on windows to open the EFI partition, then rename the bootmgr and Im all set?
And actually I see my bios have the setting to choose UEFI bootloader (DELL 7559), so I think maybe I could ignore the above steps?

As per post #2 of the guide, it is preferable to set a UEFI entry for Clover using efibootmgr in Linux.

And actually I see my bios have the setting to choose UEFI bootloader (DELL 7559), so I think maybe I could ignore the above steps?

If you can set Clover as priority within BIOS, then no need to use efibootmgr.

Hello, I have a mostly successful build from this guide (updated so Sierra 10.12.6). The issue I am having is that I cannot disable the trackpad on this laptop. I have attempted to install and remove kexts that had trackpad support including voodoo. I have a mouse that I want to use and also when I am coding the trackpad registers the tiniest of touch causing it to jump in lines of code. Attached are the requested problem reports

You have two sets of kexts installed for PS2... obvious from your kextcache output:
Code:
kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext ApplePS2Keyboard.kext
kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext ApplePS2Controller.kext
kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext
...
kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext ApplePS2Keyboard.kext
kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext ApplePS2Controller.kext
kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext

Remove the ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext from both locations.

Don't forget about the same kext in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other.

Remove the ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext from both locations.

Thank you, I have removed both the ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext files at both the locations. Unfortunately I am still gettting a no trackpad found when I go to system preferences-> trackpad.

Which is strange in itself as the trackpad still works, but won't allow me to choose to disable it.

You should not expect a working SysPrefs->Trackpad when you remove the trackpad kexts.
I'm not sure what you're really trying to do.
Originally you wrote you wanted to disable the trackpad (assuming you're just not going to use it).
Easy to do by eliminating any kexts you installed for it.

Which is strange in itself as the trackpad still works, but won't allow me to choose to disable it.

You must have failed to delete it from all locations to which it is installed.
No problem reporting files attached.

I do just want to disable the trackpad. Sorry, let me clarify! Even when removing the trackpad kexts the trackpad is still functioning.


Attached are refreshed report files

I ended up correcting it, by removing the VoodooPS2Mouse.kext file and now trackpad is completely disabled. USB mouse is still recognized.

Yes, of course. If you only removed the trackpad kext, the system loads the mouse kext instead.
