When I get back home a little later I can zip you my EFI folder, but other than that, I don't know much help I can be... I've built a few hackintosh desktops over the years, but never a laptop—this has been much trickier.

Mine is an El Capitan boot, for now, not Sierra. You could probably update directly to Sierra, but I'm not going to risk that yet...
Keyboard maps alt to command, so that it's more Mac-like to use. But this machine annoyingly has the fn key beside the command key, which is lame... I'm hoping I can map that to alt at some point (again, to make it more Mac-like).

I don't know, honestly. Probably you can, since it's before the OS loads, but I'm not 100% certain.

Hopefully. Note that I've only patched a few things, at this point, so not everything is going to work... But hopefully it will get you booted at least!
