Hello, this is my first post, to start sorry for my bad English, I accept suggestions.
I successfull install Mac OS Mojave (10.14.2) on my laptop msi.

HARDWARE
  • I7-7700HQ
  • 17,3 Screen of 120hz with 5 ms
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • Nvidia 1050 (doesn´t work, disabled by patch)
  • SSD M.2 Crucial 500GB
  • HDD 1 TB
BIOS

I attach photos of BIOS settings, I have to say something, and that is that the BIOS of my laptop (like all MSI I suppose) has an advanced mode, in which you have to adjust the graphic configuration, you will have to put the value of the DVMT-preallocated in 64MB in addition to the internal graphics enabled
To access the "Advanced BIOS" enter the BIOS and press CTRL and SHIFT right and ALT and F2 left

PATCH

All the necessary patches are placed in the efi folder that I will upload next
Thanks to @RehabMan for the config.plist and the guides for the patching of DSDT and SSDT

WORKING
  • Screen brightness
  • Accelerated graphics with intel 630HD (detects 1536MB)
  • Functionals keys
  • Ethernet card
  • Battery (with SSDT patch)
  • FULL HD screen with 120 hz
  • Sound (with voodooHDA pkg)
  • Internal touchpad and keyboard
NOT WORKING
  • Nvidia 1050 (Disabled by SSDT patch)
  • Wifi (Solution by replace internal wifi card or buy USB card
NOT TESTED
  • File vault encript
INSTALLATION

Create the installer with unibeast mojave, (if it does not work do it with createinstallmedia) then replace the EFI folder that creates unibeast by default, which I have uploaded (mounting the EFI partition with Clover configurator).
After having installed it, in MacOS mojave mount the EFI folder of the disk, and replace it with the EFI folder that I have uploaded, and successfull!

WIFI

The WiFi works with the DELL card dw1560 the card is M2, the necessary kext are in the EFI folder that I have uploaded, in my case the card I bought in Spain, but I share links to UK

NOTES

I suppose that this "guide" could be used for the GP72M and variants for example (GL72M).
I thank you tonymac, because due to all of your guides I am able to create my hackintosh, and I share my experience with you, happy hackintoshing!;)

nice, if you disabled gpu with ssdt patch, you can try to leave internal graphs in auto mode and primary graph as SG, and dont have to touch dvmt. but of course if your method is working, no reason to change it, main advantage of making primary graph SG is that if you have dual boot windows, you can use nvidia in windows without changing bios settings else its same..

Hello ! I do not know English well, but I want to say thank you. Thanks to your instructions, I was able to install Catalina 10.15.4 on my MSI GP72m 7RDX. Everything works well, even bluetooth.
