    Alienware 15 R3 on OS X 10.12.6

    I do not have any TB device but I tested with usb storage device, sleep work but no hot plug. Try searching "IOElectrify.kext" (or this link https://github.com/the-darkvoid/macOS-IOElectrify) for hot plugging tb port. I tested it work with 10.12.6, did not border with 10.13.6. I use screen shader to tame my screen for now until screen brightness fix.

    Most likely you have SSDT-DDGPU.aml in clover/acpi/patched, remove it. It exist because non-gsync model have the option to turn off nvidia gpu via patch.

    I do not know which one you are referring. You might want to check if SSDT-DDGPU.aml exist in Clover/ACPI/patched, remove it as it disable nvidia gpu. For gsync model, igpu is not connect to anything and mainly use for quick sync in os x. If you are installing osx 10.13.6, try cpus=1 boot argument should fix most KP during install.

    In the attached,you should have "Laptop backlight control using AppleBacklightInjector" , thats the link You can find HDAEnabler11.kext in your Clover/kext/Others/_disable/HDAEnabler11.kext, remove CloverHDA also

    Screen brightness should work with AppleBacklightInjector.kext installed into /Library/Extension, check out the attached. If the AppleBacklightInjector.kext does not work for you, follow the link and create your own 4k panel AppleBacklightInjector.kext. Audio jack, try enable HDAEnabler11.kext in Clover/kext and remove CloverHDA.kext. AppleBacklightInjector.zip

    @luisrene88 Have you try CoreDisplayFixup.kext to enable 4K display (https://github.com/PMheart/CoreDisplayFixup/releases)? What is your max display refresh rate in windows ? (120hz = gsync) I reviewed your clover folder but there is almost nothing inside your config.plist. Here is a mod clover folder for your aw15r3, try it and see if it fix your 4K display. CLOVER.zip

    According to your dxdiag, you have intel hd530, try this clover. You're running 10.12.6, I am on 10.13.6 now. It very hard for a newbie in this game even on a desktop let alone laptop which is much harder. The best thing for you right now is to understand your hardware and read as much as possible (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config). One step at a time, it can be done. Attach is the Clover folder for your review and install. Again try to understand why those value are there and also learn to adapt and change the value relative to your hardware. So, Happy hacking and post ! CLOVER.zip

    Yes, replace your clover folder but make a backup of your copy first. diagdx -> save all information will be more useful

    I need to understand your hardware first before I can generate a basic config.plist for you to start. The computer name may sound the same but we have very different hardware but I think there is a good chance of getting your system working. So I need as much system details as possible. I will gen a Clover config with I have from you, will post when ready. Meanwhile I suggest you read up more (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config) and if possible send me 'dxdiag' in window.
