5.  Sound (via VoodooHDA).

6.  Sleep/Wake works great (DSDT tweak)

7.  Keyboard and Trackpad (VoodooPS2Controller)

I got this running on High OS sierra on 10.13.3.  I had to modify tables to enable XCPM,  P states and Cstates on i3-3227u.  Here is the latest EFI Folder




Link to a better Trackpad controller.  Just replace the old one with this version of EFI/Clover/kext/10.13
