Take a look at the ProBook/EliteBook/Zbook guide:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-hp-probook-elitebook-zbook-using-clover-uefi-hotpatch.232948/

For future, in case you have an issue...

Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.164990/
Use the tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

Thanks I successfully install it after watching some videos on youtube and the guide that you recommended me. Now the problem is with the graphics, After installing the NVidia Drivers a Prohibition sing appears when I'm booting back. The actual Screen resolutions is 1024x768 and I want it normal 1920x1080

I use the Zbook 15 G3 as my primary work machine. It works great, other than bluetooth on the broadcom 94352z will intermittently not work on boot or resume. I eventually decided to just disable it altogether.

With this model, the dedicated GPU is MXM 3.0a, aka modular. It is possible to remove the heatsink and uninstall the video card while you are replacing the wifi card. This allows you to get the best battery life and also output video via the USB-C and HDMI connectors.

A few things of note:
  • MacBookPro13,1 identifier works great on this model
  • HDMI port 0105 needs to be patched to support audio and >1920x1080 resolution
  • In _SB.PCI0.HDEF._DSM, fakepciid should be enabled for the audio output to work on the USB-C / HDMI ports
  • had to change the default hotpatch config so it doesn't try to disable a non-existent dedicated GPU
  • use layout id 5 for the conexant audio to get the headphone jack hotplug working
  • override _RMV to return (One) on _SB.PCI0.RP05.PXSX so usb-c hotplug will work
  • 32GB RAM (4x8GB) works, but I haven't tried 64GB (4x16GB)
  • a 2TB Crucial MX300 SATA drive works great with trim enabled
It will certainly take some tweaking, but this series makes a very good Macbook Pro replacement!

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide".
Here is a direct link, just to be clear:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing. Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html
The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ:
"Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"
