I just bought this laptop today and after having used MacOS for years, its hard to adjust to Windows.....I want to go back to MacOS Sierra if possible. Here is what I know about the computer

CPU: Intel i5 7th gen -7200U

I am completely and utterly confused about this :( I used to have an HP ProBook 4530s and it was so easy to install OS X on it....then it died....so I bought a MacBook Air that I used for 2 years....I needed a computer ASAP so I went to Best Buy and tried to find a laptop that was listed on the forums but they were either more expensive that what little money I had or Best Buy didn't have them.....I did get Clover on a USB drive and it did boot....but that's about as far as I've gotten....I have the current latest version of MacOS Sierra downloaded onto a real Mac, so I have the USB drive, MacOS, a real Mac to use to set it all up but no clue as to what exactly to do from there....



EDIT 1: I am currently writing a USB installer for MacOS Sierra....Hopefully it will work.....*fingers crossed*

EDIT 2: Can't boot to installer...i've tried faking the CPU ID, i've tried faking the GPU ID, i've tried everything I can think of....sadly, it scrolls text so fast and then kernel panic and reboots so freaking fast.....i've went thru probably 30-40 boots, changes, etc.....nothing has worked...

EDIT 3: Got to installer! Yay! However, can't use keyboard/mouse :(

EDIT 4: Okay, it's installed (temporary install to a USB drive before I end up wiping my Windows install)....now just gotta get kext files for my wifi (or replace wifi card), sound and graphics

Did you get macOS working on your BS015dx? I have it mostly working, and it's almost ready to go on the road. I didn't document my steps, so I could use more users with the same machine to write up an installation guide (I know I'll need it later when it's time to reinstall from scratch).
