I had a similar problem and I noticed that you are on the 1.3.0 bios, I am on the 1.2.9 bios and mac os works decently on my machine, so, maybe try downgrading the bios.

Hello, I am receiving an error which I think may be caused by the graphics, if anyone else is experiencing this, any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am using the EFI and system kexts that Shubham17 posted. it appears that it is trying to do something with the graphics but just can't.

Thanks for the suggestion unbranded, I tried the 1.2.9 bios with the same result.

fireproof13 what version of mac os were you thinking about installing? Mojave or Catalina? (I thought hackintoshing was going to be easy too, but it is really really difficult to get everything working properly.)

I've been trying Mojave. Maybe I need to try an older version or something? Idk, I'm working on installing it on an old HP desktop I've got now.

The reason that this is not working for you is that you are using the software and kexts for a dell computer, when you are using an HP. First if you want to get this computer working you will have to see if your model is hackintosh compatable, then you will have to find the appropriate guide for your system.

I think you misunderstood me, I was working on a Dell 15 7559 and have all but given up. I meant I have moved on to working on an HP that I have as well.

I'll see if I can. The HP went pretty smooth and is done, so I'm gonna keep working on the dell.
