This guide won't work on other Dell laptops?

System specific guides tend to be... well... "system specific".
I could not find any guide for Dell Latitude e6220 laptop, this guide is not working even on my PC, getting same message as on Dell (still waiting for root device), tried all ports...

Stupid question related to the updated guide for 10.12.5:
How do you know which SSDTxx.dsl file requires some patching? I see some are picked while others are left untouched - just curious to understand how to know which one to modify.

Thanks.

Patches to apply depend on file content.

So what logic do you follow to start looking into these files?
Is it something like:
Log checking -> error message -> correlation to a component in one of the file?

Just a heads up for UHD users installing 10.12.5, the installation is a slightly different. Edit ig-platform-id to 0x12345678.

Also, after booting, my display went to a black screen, and I can't see the installer. However, if I connect an HDMI display I can see the installer on the HDMI display. Not quite sure why that is, but worked for me.
