After created Install, use Clover Configater  mount EFI of USB and copy folder EFI you download above in it. Remember copy all file above to root USB install

Reboot Surface keep volume down and power when Clover screen show, choose Mac OS Sierra to boot. 

In the Screen install, you open Disk Utility and created 1 or 2 partition if you want install Window. Choose partition to install and wait 20 minutes.

After reboot Choose partition you installed it and boot, after setup complete. Open Clover Configator and mount EFI hard drive and copy folder EFI in it. Use Easykextpro install Dummy HDA, AvatarFwloader and Nullethernet. If you have usb wifi, you can install driver. Reboot again whit not USB.... It done.

Messaged op multiple times...waited long for replies...none...

 

I do native ios engineering in objective c and swift and have been hackintoshing for numerous years...so fair warning:

Unless as adept at hackintosh as rehabman or similar, don't use the op's guide...dsdt or similar seems to have issues. Installed about 10 times many different ways...then tried earlier version...still problems...usb and bluetooth

Op hasn't answered any questions here or by pm. Don't use this guide until it is updated with proper USB solution to make bluetooth work properly...not simply show up.

 

If only need one bluetooth device to work vaguely reliably, maybe this will do...maybe...

 

Actually...any skilled sp2 hackintosh types can reply with some links to fully functioning dsdt and plist.

 

Thanks in advance. Already asked jape about bt and he said it is likely a usb config issue.

Please take note that there are definitely problems with the USB ports and Bluetooth using the above config.plist and DSDT/SSDT, as also mentioned by previous poster.  It seems these problems are due to changes introduced in later versions of El Capitan that continue into Sierra/HighSierra.  I've spent a long time testing with both a 4200U and 4300U model using a USB WiFi WN725N v2 (containing a RTL8188EU chipset).  After a lot of changes to DSDT/SSDT, everything is working OK for me in 10.13.6 with the attached files.  I don't personally use bluetooth very much, so don't be upset with me if that is still acting up. I am attaching my modified DSDTs and SSDTs as tested on a SP2 4200U.  It should work for you on SP2 4300U but you may need to modify the power management.  Sorry I won't be able to work on this any further, but hope this will help you all!
