Sell it if it doesn't work.
Otherwise, plan on using google to determine if there is a whitelist on your specific laptop.
But even then, no way to insure "100% of certainty"...
You will be "100% certain" after you test the laptop with the card installed!
It is some solution but I don't know if I will sell it on polish market. About the whitelist- I can't find any official info about it :(

Hello, I installed the 12.5 sierra according to your Broadway e550 guide, I used 0x16260006 for me the best.
Unfortunately, I can not handle the black screen after waking up and sleeping.
I ask for understanding and help in refining my maca.


What version of IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup.kext are you using?
(the version determines the technique used... old versions use a patch not recommended...)

This guide is for Haswell hardware. Yours is Broadwell...
You should probably open a separate thread...

is this still a valid method for getting this machine up and running with MacOS?

EDIT: NVM i think i'm an idiot. I think my chip is a broadwell.
