Is there any chance of being able to modify these files for use with a 9350? Skylake vs KabyLake but otherwise I don't think much has changed. I tried booting the installer with the attached 9.01 files but it just got stuck at the Apple Loading screen. The bar didn't even come up.

With latest ACPIBatteryManager.kext it always shows low battery popup and red icon on my laptop (even it's 66% remaining).

Hi, first of all thank you all for the amazing guide. I just bought an XPS 13 with i7560U, IRIS 940 and QHD display. I have now a problem with my attempt to install 10.12.6. After many attempts my USB appeared as bootable. I click on it, let the bar under the apple logo load until approximately 30%, then an error appeared (kernel panic).

I tried to follow the guide as much as possible and so far the only differences should be:

BIOS version: 1.3.7 (even if, considering the posts, should be supported fine).

BIOS settings: USB security level: unknown (there's no option with this name in BIOS settings. Anyway, UBUNTU booted fine)
Auto recovery: not shown, unknown


Am I missing something? Thanks in advance for the help

If you want trouble free operation, buy a Mac.
If you want a project to tinker with (and to eat up all your time), buy a hackbook.

That's most definitely residual battery values stored in EC. Shutdown properly, unplug battery and CMOS battery, CTRL+ESC and reset to factory settings. If symptoms persist run coconutbattery and check condition & state of health.

Actually try the latest update from @RehabMan's repo - there's a fix for intermittent red battery...

Thank you @RehabMan I had completely missed out the part in which I had to patch the DVMT to 96 or 128MB. However, I can't really understand how to properly change it. I tried to extract the BIOS using Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit 2.0 (as suggested in first post) but then the ROM file that I obtain (attached to this post) seems unusable. As I try put it in Universal-IFR-Extractor the result is a txt file that contains almost no info at all (attached as well, named variable exctract).I'm referring to Kinutsk's guide as it's the only one I could find. What am I missing? Should I use that file in another way?
