This guide is not for your laptop. Laptop specific guides, are, well... laptop specific.

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.

I am awared that laptop specific guides are laptop specific, but do you think looking for closest possible specs (in my case brand, CPU and internal GPU are the same) is a bad idea?
And this guide is mainly based on your main guide.
I just wanted to ask you all what may be the problem because I can see that you all have huge knowledge of the topic.
I used verbose option in clover and I am stuck on:
using reloc block: no hibernate wake: no
And there are no pluses after this like I saw in other cases when I googled it. It's just stuck forever with no reboots or anything. What can be an issue?

EDIT:
Is this okay to ask here?
Or do I have to create new topic?

Not a bad idea for learning. But don't expect to use the files/instructions for a different laptop. As you get deeper into the process, they tend to get specific to the target laptop.

And any post in this thread not regarding the target laptop is off-topic.

Or do I have to create new topic?

Create your own thread instead of hijacking a guide thread that is not for your laptop.

Hi, i've got an issue, i'm trying to fix the graphics with minStolenSize patch, but i cannot, well, i'll to write my steps in order.
1. I start with FakeID: 0x12345678
2. Put ig-platform-id: 0x12345678
3. minStolen patch for Skylake all in kexts to patch in clover configurator, exactly like this:
Comment: Skylake minStolenSize patch
Name: AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer
MatchOS: 10.12.x
Find: <89 45 C8 39 C6 76 51>
Replace: <89 45 C8 39 C6 eb 51>
4. Force load AppleIntelSKLGraphicsFramebuffer.kext through the ForceKextsToLoad, in clover configurator
5. Next in system parameters put No caches
Reboot
6. I start with FakeID: 0x12345678
7. when the computer starts I put this: sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
8. In the same session (Without rebooting) I put in clover configurator this: ig-platform-id 0x19160000
9. Reboot and then in clover (bootloader not configurator) put FakeID like this: 0x00000000
10. Next I try to boot, and I got a Kernel panic
Please, if i'm doing something wrong tell me

Wrong way to start out. You'll never get the kext into cache if you use FakeID.
Must use only invalid ig-platform-id so the kext loads.
Then rebuild cache.
Then boot normally (with the patch in place).

Ok, i'm sorry but my native language is not English.
Well, i did this, I start without FakeID
*In clover configurator I put an invalid ig-plataform (0x12345678), reboot my system (without caches)
*Rebuid cache, and next I put the patch and this ig-plataform (0x19160000), and i got a Kernel panic again
Again i'm sorry for my english.

You will need to provide details.
Boot verbose, show photo. Attach EFI/Clover folder as ZIP (omit 'themes' folder).

Zip file has my EFI/Clover folder, with new config.plist (it causes Kernel Panic), outside there my old config.plist is (it starts without graphic acceleration).
Bellow is my system with -v

You did not enter the patch correctly in your config.plist.
