Dell Inspiron 17 5767 specifications
  • Manufacturer: Dell Inc.
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-7500u (7th gen) / 2.7 Ghz
  • RAM: 16 GB / DDR4 SDRAM
  • Display resolution: 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
  • Primary GPU: Intel HD 620
  • Secondary GPU: AMD Radeon R7 M445 / 4 GB / GDDR5 SDRAM
  • Audio codec: Realtek ALC3246 (ALC256)
  • Wireless - Bluetooth: Intel Dual Band AC3165
What is working
  • All things not listed in "What is not working"
What is not working
  • Secondary GPU --> disabled by SSDT patch to make boot possible
  • Gestures on touch pad
  • WiFi
Possible fixes (NOT TESTED YET)
  • Secondary GPU:
    WhateverGreen.kext + Lily.kext, need to remove the patched SSDT
  • Gestures on touch pad:
    I don't know
  • WiFi:
    AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext (avaible on GitHub but probably abandoned) or substitute WiFi card with a supported one or use a supported WiFi USB adapter or if you have a Raspberry Pi + any WiFi USB adapter you can create a network bridge
Prerequisites
  • Follow RehabMan's guide here and when you successfully created the bootable USB return here to add the remaining necessary files
  • Download all the files attached below
  • Download tools below:
Installation
  1. Copy "SSDT-7.aml" and "SSDT-PNLF.aml" to your EFI partition --> EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched
  2. Copy "RealtekRTL8100.kext" to your EFI partition --> EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
  3. Copy "config.plist" to your EFI partition --> EFI/CLOVER
  4. Resume RehabMan's guide and when you successfully reached macOS desktop, rebooted with the correct ig-platform-id as per guide, installed Clover on your HDD, etc. return here
  5. Check "Backup kexts that will be replaced" and install all kexts present in your EFI partition --> EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other through Kext Wizard, repair permissions and rebuild kernel-cache by checking "System/Libraries/Extensions" in Maintenance module
  6. Reboot
  7. Now you should have working ethernet, backlight control, audio
  8. If you used macOS High Sierra 10.13.5 version to create the bootable USB:
    You shouldn't have problems with display after sleep/wake like display glitches
    If you used macOS High Sierra 10.13.x prior to 10.13.5 version to create the bootable USB:
    You may get some problems with display after sleep/wake like display glitches so you MUST update your system to 10.13.5 version through the "App Store" to fix this
  9. Enjoy!!!
Thanks
  • Special thanks to @RehabMan for his amazing guides
Notes
  • RealtekRTL8100.kext is a modified version of Mieze's one (Mieze's version was unstable on my laptop because it still connecting/disconnecting, so after many researches I found another working version on insanelymac)
  • AppleHDA.kext is a prebuilt kext I found on GitHub

Sorry for my late answer but I have not upload Mojave version yet because I'm trying to solve some issues. Then I'll post the new guide in the Mojave laptop guides section of the forum.

I just used the config.plist from rehabmans guide for intel hd 620 but mojave is turning out to be unstable. I might have to go back to your guide and install high sierra.

I'd love to see Mojave support, I'm desperate to get a Mojave machine - my main machine is cursed by no NVIDIA web drivers.

UPDATE: This doesn't work super well, it's functional but... I'll be switching back to Windows for the time being. I would still like to try Mojave out however. The trackpad's function is just a bit too messed up. Good guide though, it actually launched. :)
