Hello, so I created 'Bootable Sierra USB' and successfully installed it on my old laptop 'Dell XPS 17 (L702X)' and it boots just fine.
Now I need to figure out which are the best kexts for my hardware to install.
So I'm asking for help from the experts, I need the following kexts for my hardware:

  • Ethernet
  • Audio
  • TouchPad (Synaptics)
  • Fn+Brightness Control
  • USB 2.0/USB 3.0
  • Any other important kexts I should install?

So can anyone guide me with links for the following kexts?

I also have 'config' and 'DSDT/SSDT' files from my old 'Yosemite' build can I use them on my 'Sierra'?

You need to identify your hardware specs in order to look for and (hopefully) find the relevant kexts. So you'll have to find out the exact model of your Ethernet/LAN card (for instance Intel i217-LM) and audio codec (for instance ALC292).

 

If you cannot identify the specs yourself, lookup the PCI ids in Windows Device Manager (you'll find vendor (VEN) + device (DEV) ids under one of the driver's tabs) or some other hardware scanning app. Dell's own online documentation should be checked too of course!
