There are no good solutions for read/write NTFS in OS X/macOS.
FAT32 is a possibility, although it has limitations.
exFAT has less limitations, but the OS X/macOS implementation is known to be buggy.



The procedures are essentially the same. I'm not sure why you think it matters where you install Windows...
You use the Windows installer to install Windows.
You use the OS X installer to install OS X.
You use Clover to boot either.
I guess I think it matters because I'm worried I will loose the performance I have been enjoying with Windows being installed on the SSD. Also the only other dual operating system I've setup was on a single drive (Linux & WinXp). It's been a while and I can't wrap my head around how the laptop, on startup, knows which drive, or operating system to boot. But you say Clover will ask.
Again. Thank you. Your the best. I'm sure you'll hearing from me again soon as I step through this adventure. Looking forward to it.

Procedures are essentially the same. Performance between SSD and HDD are, of course, different.

Also the only other dual operating system I've setup was on a single drive (Linux & WinXp). It's been a while and I can't wrap my head around how the laptop, on startup, knows which drive, or operating system to boot.

The laptop BIOS knows nothing of multiboot. It boots into Clover (UEFI entry set via efibootmgr). Clover provides the selection menu.

I'm running into issues compiling my DSDT.dsl file. I'm getting an error on line 48 "syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_EXP_MULTIPLY". I've tried using the refs.txt from the following guides:
The second one produces the least amount of errors. Please help.


Your ACPI files are corrupt. Re-extract with Clover F4. If you still have the issue, attach ACPI/origin files as ZIP.

I re-extracted it and I'm receiving the same errors. Attached are the files from ACPI/origin.

I disassembled your files per guide: iasl -da -dl -fe refs.txt DSDT.aml SSDT*.aml
Then opened DSDT.dsl.
Removed the line 'External (****, UnknownObj)', as it is clearly wrong.
Clicked 'Compile'.
Result: no errors.

I removed that line and started going through the rest of the guide. Once I apply the "[sys] Skylake LPC" I then get 5 additional errors:
  • Line 11320 - Name already exists in scope (_DSM)
  • Line 13743 - Object not found or not accessible from scope (^^LPCB.CRID)
  • Line 13750 - Object not found or not accessible from scope (^^LPCB.CRID)
  • Line 13755 - Object not found or not accessible from scope (^^LPCB.CRID)
