Hello, I have managed to install OSX 10.11.4 on my ASUS K55A laptop using Unibeast. I am booting using the drive as a boatloader because I couldn't get Clover EFI (Legacy) to install on the laptop because the EFI on here only supports MBR. Anyways I can boot up fine and the graphics, ethernet, sound via USB headphones, touchpad & keyboard works fine but there is no power indicator in the menubar. I am quite new to Hackintosh building and I have a main rig that runs OSX fine and I don't need a power indicator on it because its not a laptop, but this is my first laptop I've managed to make a Hackintosh. So anyways I have no clue how to fix the power indicator. Could anyone help please? :)

Not a desktop. Moved to laptop support.

I heard that DSDT patching is quite hard could you help me with it and not just send a link?
Thanks
You will need to read the guide and do it yourself.

But I dont know what motherboard this laptop contains and I have to boot off a USB with Clover on it because this laptop doesn't support EFI loading unless its MBR so would I apply the DSDT patches to my Clover USB or what?

You probably just need to set a UEFI entry in BIOS for Clover. It is very common with ASUS laptops. Look carefully at your BIOS settings.
