I followed the guide ([Guide] Booting the OS X installer on LAPTOPS with Clover) and successfully booted MacOS High Sierra desktop.

However my trackpad / touchpad (ELAN I2C (ELAN0501)) and Keyboard did not work.

As requested by RehabMan, attached here the files described in the FAQ.

Any tips on what I might try to do?

Thanks!

For those like me with an Acer Aspire ES1-572-3562.

That's what I've achieved so far (briefly), thanks to the help of RehabMan and ben9923 :

1. To make the laptop trackpad work
(as a mouse, "Point and click" and "Right click" on the bottom right end of the trackpad. No 2 fingers for right click, no 2 fingers for scroll and no System Preferences recognition/detection)

- BIOS/Security Tab/Security Boot Mode/Custom
- BIOS/Main Tab/Touchpad/Basic
- Removed the AppleIntelLpssI2C.kext, AppleIntelLpssI2CController.kext and AppleHPM.kext from S/L/E
- Installed VoodooPS2Controller.kext (v 1.8.29)
- Did not install VoodooI2C

2. To make the laptop keyboard work

- After acomplished the steps related to the trackpad the keyboard started to work as well.

More details on this thread: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...d-limited-support.204227/page-99#post-1641489

I will rename this thread as solved.

Note: To have the multitouch functionality on the trackpad (the 2-finger thing for right click and scroll and etc) we should wait for the VoodooI2C rewrite as ben9923 said.


Off topic:

- Audio problem solved with this guide:

https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/4e23w6/guide_native_audio_with_clover_applealckext/

Note: The guide mentions the "Layout ID Injection", what worked for me was layout ID 28.

I have touchpad E501 too. All you need is install AppleSmartTouchpad.kext. Almost all features working for me:
- Lookup: tap with 3 fingers
- Right click: tap with 2 finger
- Left click: tap with 1 finger
- Zoom(Smart zoom and rotate not working)
- Launch pad: pin with thumb and 3 fingers
- Show desktop: spread with thumb and 3fingers
- Scroll with 2 fingers,
- Scroll at right side with 1 finger(default of ELAN lol)
- Swipe with 2 fingers from the right side: Notification
- Swipe with 2 fingers in launchpad
- Swipe up with 3 fingers mission control
- Swipe down blabla
And you can custom the gestures with BetterTouchTool :3 Have fun
