I just got a Dell Inspiron 7352 Broadwell i7-5500u HD5500 and made it into a perfect MacBook Air7,2 with everything working. I installed Yosemite, El Capitan and macOS Sierra. Here is how I did it. For those who have no mac to create an 8GB installer, watch the videos.

 

1. To boot the installer use ig-platform-id 16160006, when everything is done boot with 16260006 for full QE/CI.

2. Use Rehabman config.plist file and edit some.

3. Make sure to use all the newest and greatest kexts from Rehabman for perfect running system, especially with macOS Sierra.

4.Patch ALC255 using AppleALC.kext will get HDMI and all audio ports detection perfectly.

5. For more information on this laptop.

 

Choose the MacBook Air 7,2 with SMBIOS MBA71 will run faster with macOS Sierra then SMBIOS MBA72.
