I used disk utility to create a second ExFAT partition and then installed windows with an external drive. Works perfectly.
I have the white version too its like what the mbp should have been

@vettz500 - thanks for the updated files!

This is now a decent work machine :) One of the last things is to get 2 external monitors working - TB3 works nicely, but mDP and HDMI do not seem to be outputting. I know that HDMI is connected to the GTX and I have mine disabled as I don't use it and prefer the battery life. I assume there is no way to make it work if GTX is off? Any suggestions what to try first to get the mDP working at the same time with TB3?

Much appreciated, thanks! :)

The MiniDisplay port and HDMI port will not work with the Nvidia Graphics card disabled. They are both wired through the Nvidia card. So unless you enable it, there's no way of making either work.

When you're going to install OSX, format the SSD for OSX and then make a separate partition after the format and format that partition to FAT32 or EXFat and you'll be good to go to install Windows after OSX is installed.

And I think the White Razer Blade has the UHD620 Graphics. Double check that, because if you do, there will be a few extra steps you have to take to make OSX work for your laptop.

Just confirming that it uses UHD630 graphic :)

Another update for everyone:
I figured out a little "hack" to get the Caps Lock light to work.

Use the app Karabiner-Elements: https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/
The same app used to remap keyboard shortcuts that's listed at the bottom of the guide.

Go to Preferences in Karabiner-Elements and click on the Devices tab. Look for the Razer Blade (Razer) that has the keyboard logo underneath the Type column. Check the box that says Manipulate LED.
Save the profile and enjoy a working caps lock light. It's set to white by default, as of right now I haven't figured out how to change the color. But having it be white when on is better than having no caps lock light at all.

Hi, the install was mostly painless. Like the other person who used Mojave (couldn't figure out the macadminscript) I do not have working sound. Does anyone know if what RehabMan told him (using the other kexts) worked out?

Just a question, did you update through App Store? Or did you start from scratch?

Did you try using the other ID's that were mentioned a page or 2 back in your config.plist?
