I got a little busier than usual and I still need to take some time off to write that guide. It's working really great. But then I decided to move to High Sierra and, despite being successful, it doesn't work as great as Sierra and there are some weired things (my custom shutdown patch doesn't work, sleep doesn't work, it's slower than Sierra...). That's why I'll have to go back to Sierra (didn't manage to fix 10.13 issues).Hi. This you manage to finish the hackintosh on this laptop? Any news on the guide you promissed for us the nobbies? Keep on the great work!!
Next week, if I have enough time, I'll take some pics of the installation proccess and write that guide.
In the mean time, you might want to take a look at my repo: https://github.com/coisadepro/Vostro-5470-Hackintosh/blob/master/README.md
It's not a guide yet, but has lots of tips and common pitfalls (I even include all the required files, including the SSDTs hotpaches, which are the hardest part to learn to do right).
In Sierra you can expect battery, power management, sleep, hd graphics, brightness, sound, shutdown, touchpad... everything but the internal Wifi (which needs to be replaced, or using usb wifi dongle (can cause sleep issues, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK)).
EDIT: I finally got Clover Legacy to install Sierra with UEFI disabled, but it didn't fix the issues and also made them worse. Boot is slower and iMessage won't work. Do not waste your time trying to install Clover Legacy on this machine. Instead, go with Clover UEFI (normal version)
But if you have any questions, feel free to drop them here and I'll do my best to help you
