oops..it looks like I uploaded the wrong config file.
I am using the config file of "config_HD615_620_630_640_650.plist" from your below link as I am running 10.13.
https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config
however my laptop keep rebooting during loading bar screen, once I revised the FakeID to the invalid one, it boots up.
no idea which FakeID should I use...
could you do me a favor, show me what is wrong? thanks a lot.
You should not use FakeID at all.
If you have not set DVMT-prealloc correctly, you will get panic.
Make sure you read the guides carefully.

Update:
Now graphics working, thanks RehabMan!

Audio not working (SysPref -> VoodooHDA -> No VoodooHDA Devices Detected)

Brightness not working (No control in Syspref -> Displays)
- If I install IntelBacklight.kext, kext hault occurs and says PNLF, but I already included SSDT-PNLF.aml inside ACPI/patched

Ethernet not working (I use my USB-C to RJ-45 adapter with 3 USB 3.0 Hub):
- Device can be shown in SysPref -> Network
- Hub is working and fully functional
- DHCP not working, and (or therefore) my router cannot detect it

One more (simple) question: The system is now installed on external HDD, can I clone it to my NVMe drive?

Thanks a lot!
(Clover.zip same as previous post)
Does post #1 use VoodooHDA? I see no mention of it...

Common ethernet kexts are linked from the FAQ:

@the-darkvoid @bozma88 I think we need a new guide created in the HS guides because this one is now getting overrun by HS questions and problems that Sierra doesn’t have. More confusion will happen.
That (guide for HS) is up to the original author of the guide.

First off, hats off to Bozma88 for this fantastic guide and RehabMan for his continued help. I am trying to install Sierra 10.12.6 on my XPS (Coffee-Lake refresh) but I cannot get the graphics to work unless I turn off the graphics injector in Clover. If I keep it on, it goes into a loop where when I turn on verbose mode, it gives me this message:

IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lln 0, llk 1,
IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0

The above flickers for maybe half a second and then I see a blank screen for several seconds, with this flickering again. This goes on indefinitely. I have used the all of the files provided by Bozma88.

Good news and some bad news:

- Brightness control working (!) , but the function keys are not
- Power Management: Won't get lower than 1.3GHz (Is it normal?)
- Audio not working (not a big deal as I usually mute it)
- WLAN USB Dongle working (finally some internet access), Ethernet to be tested
- [New] "Shutdown" option doesn't actually shutdown (power off), the laptop restarted instead

Things to do:
- Swap the Wi-Fi card
- Clone the whole external HDD to one of the partitions on NVMe (not sure if it works or not)

Maybe post #1 needs some update... Files in the archive do not work and I spent over a week to make it "use-able"
Btw thanks again RehabMan!

Original files works fine for me. @ensonchoy Do you have the same exact system as OP? (e.g. CPU, BIOS, etc.) Were you installing Sierra or HS?
