Hello,

I have tried to install High Sierra on a Alienware 13 r2 Laptop.
The installation fails at starting the Window Manager, I think it's because the Laptop has Optimus to switch between the Graphic Cards.
In the Bios is no option to disable discrete Graphics, so i tried to patch the DSDT but i don't have any experience with DSDT patching. Then I tried to patch a SSDT like this, but it doesen't worked. I think I did something wrong, because i doesen't worked.

Can anyone help my patching the DSDT or SSDT? I will upload the whole clover extracted files and my wrong patched SSDT.

Here the specs of the Laptop:
CPU: i7-6500U
iGPU: HD Graphics 520
Nvidia GPU: GTX 960M

you will need to upload all problem reporting files

use the tool from the FAQ:
