I did it, but it doesn't work, I have the same issues. :(
The SSDT4 is now SSDT-6.aml and SSDT5 is SSDT-7.aml.

I have always the 4 errors on SSDT-6.dsl and the 2 errors in SSDT-7.dsl.
You did not disassemble correctly. Read the guide carefully.

If you need help, attach all native DSDT+SSDT files.

Thank you for you help, I disassemble with iasl -e, and the compilation was successful.
For the nvidia gpu I just set DropOem=true on SSDT, and I have no nvidia things on system information.

Thank you again for your advice ! ^^

You can't use patched ACPI files from another computer, so there is no point...

100% sure.

It only works if the two computers have exactly the same hardware configuration (amount of memory, BIOS version, etc.)
With mismatched ACPI, problems can be intermittent/hard to trace.
If you know how to check for compatibility (check SystemMemory addresses), you can use already patched ACPI.
Best result with ACPI hotpatch, such that native ACPI is patched by Clover on the fly.

Well my acer screen stopped working I'm looking at a new nitro but it has a different chip and more ram

This is my older acer that died
https://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=9SIA0AJ35P3653

It has a 4th generation chip

i7 4th Gen 4720H

The replacement I'm looking at is this model VN7592G72VQ

2.6-3.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core Processo

Will i be able to follow this guide again to install os x on it ?

Pay attention the Skylake info in the FAQ. It is important.
