I have the same laptop, I have managed to get Sierra and High Sierra to boot on it with both nvidia default and web drivers. But, there are lot's of issues, for instance, with nvidia enabled(default or web driver) -- there is no way to shutdown, logout, or restart the laptop, it get's stuck on a black screen. Laptop display randomly freezes while using certain app, and it always freezes when and external monitor is plugged into the hdmi port. For me I never really got black screen, maybe because of the config I use. I have had to reinstall El Capitan, which works perfectly fine, though I have had to inject edid to fix blurry display.
Could you share your EFI folder? Actually, I have a same laptop. Unfortunately, I am stuck on PCI end error. Although I added the npcix=3000 or 2000 into my config, it still doesn't work. I hope to analyze your EFI. Thanks for your help.
