      The laptop in question: Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 (Model: ZQ3)

      The manufacturer specifications:
      Intel Core i5 520M 2.4GHz TurboBoost to 2.93GHz 3MB L3 Cache 14.0" 16:9 HD LED backlit LCD (specifically a AU Optronics AUO313C B140XW03 V1 - Thank you, HWiNFO64 !) with the embedded First Generation Intel HD Graphics IronLake, no nVidia graphics (Dissembling the machine clearly shows where it would be installed for the higher end option) The display resolution issue was resolved by following this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286092-guide-1st-generation-intel-hd-graphics-qeci/ The display - AU Optronics AUO313C B140XW03 V1 - was found to be a LVDS by searching for the Product Specification PDF as, again, Debian did not want to do " sudo intel_reg_dumper " and a lot of hopping from safe boot to regular boot through the GRUB2 and Chameleon bootloaders I found that Alternative 1 and 2 1X works but Alternative 1 gives me some really cool looking unintended gitched after effects "You're weird." I know. 4GB DDR3 Memory [it has been swapped out for the maximum that it can handle of 8GB] 320GB HDD (Western Digital, I wouldn't have it any other way...) The original has been swapped out with a same size to preserve the OEM recovery partitions unfortunately both of them are 5400RPM ("Why don't you go SSD?" I know the technology has become better but I still do not have a whole lot of trust in it - If you want to argue about it, sorry, Imma gonna ignore it. If it works, why change it) DVD-Super Multi DL Drive This fine dime will drive you nuts... there is a designated system managed eject button, much like on an actual Mac, that is next to the second wireless switching button. Do not press eject as the laptop is first booting up unless you want it to lockup before or during the BIOS boot screen "Acer Nplify™ 802.11 b/g/n" 6-cell Li-ion battery VERY NICE - NO MATTER WHAT OS I AM RUNNING, IT... FREAKING... LASTS  
      "Okay... what does it really have?" Well, all of the specifications listed above and then:
      "Atheros" Bluetooth; so says Hardware Vendor Detection from the Acer Support website - Broadcom; so says HWiNFO64 from PortableApps.com And then the sticker on the bottom says Foxconn BCM92046 ! ! ! (MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!! FOXCONN, ATHEROS, OR BROADCOM?!?!?! WHICH IS IT?!) Chicony 1.3M Camera (works no matter what if your into that stuff) LAN by Broadcom (BCM57760) WLAN by Broadcom (BCM943225HM) (No cellular modules are applicable to this model, there is a disabled mini PCI-E socket inside that is only good for a fourth expansion board USB port...) Alcor card reader (registers as a regular USB drive/stick to all operating systems unless you install the drivers in Windows, then it registers as whatever you shoved in there) EGISTEC fingerprint reader where a scroll button would be (works only in Windows after you install it) Synaptics TouchPad - TWO FINGER SCROLLING EVERYWHERE, yes can you tell that I actually do like this function? The Trackpad and Keyboard are handled by AppleACPIPS2Nub and ApplePS2Controller kexts I regretfully obtained mine from the other macx86 [I KNOW! I AM SORRY! I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT EITHER!] I cannot help it if mine is just being really picky (at least I am admitting it, besides, they don't seem too friendly over there, they didn't seem to like the matter I installed 10.6 on a Pentium 4 3.4GHz and on an Atom netbook and the result was them just simply deleting my account [just for me to go back and remake it to dissemble their stuff to see what they stole... again...]) Intel 5 Series Audio but Conexant drivers work in Windows, weird. I use VoodooHDA 2.8.7 in Mac OS, anything older seemed to do NOTHING and a freaking telephone modem by Conexant but the Windows drivers are Liteon Did I mention that this thing is from 2010? "Why do you have such an old outdated-?" Because my work gave it to me for free  
      FakeSMC V6 and Plugins to use HWMonitor 6.16.1372 to its full potential  
      (I also have the HFS+ drivers installed so I can read [only] the files on the Mac partition)
       
      "How is it setup right now?"
      It is multibooted with:
      Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate "That's on its way out very soon!" I have my ways of not being dumb online... I still use Windows XP online (*cough cough* Deepfreeze *cough*) Remix OS, a port of Android-x86 (very discontinued, looking into other versions) Niresh Mac OS X 10.8 with Chameleon "Why?" It's the last version of the big cats. Did you notice that they never did Lynx? Debian Linux KDE   "How did you do all of that?" And with a non-(U)EFI BIOS and no EFI partition, sorry, that is not what this thread is about... it was a metric ton of fun to get to work... LOTS of disk swapping and DBANs... and OSes like to manipulate partitions in each of their own ways and prevent other ones from installing without causing other conflicts like linux making a bunch of partitions because you told the Mac OS installer to format the drive with EFI in mind instead of MBR and so you have Windows, Linux but no Mac because the BIOS is only looking for FOUR partitions only and everything hits the fan including the kitchen sink...  
      "So what are you annoying us for?"
      Good question, because I am usually an introvert and usually just keep looking for answers but I could not find some. Jumping to it...
       
      What does not work and I would like thoughts on Bluetooth does not register, used to on previous installs (sorry, I did not pay attention to see if this was caused by me updating to 10.8.5 but that was necessary for the below functions) (It does not work in Debian either - Ignore) LAN and WLAN  - I have found Kexts (somewhere, I think I just lost them... dang it...) for the WLAN but I have yet to try them, nothing for the LAN I know this is cheating but I read that The NDISulator for FreeBSD (HINT HINT) is a port of NDISwrapper for Linux that runs Windows XP network drivers in Linux or BSD Brightness controls work from the middle down on the "Sun" brightness overlay, I got this far from following this: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/ but I am kind of thinking of trying: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/?do=findComment&comment=2214344 . My "magic number" is: 0xF        I used DSDTEditor in Windows, since I figured all the drivers are loaded, to extract the DSDT and compile something that somewhat works... Wake from sleep issue - I tried the above guide for that but I get no backlight and I can see that the cursor in the password field is not flashing when I use an external light source, but it will reboot when I press Ctrl + Alt + Power "button" (it is actually a slider) and then also clear my freaking CMOS right down to the clock... yeah I have the ACPI fix implmented and it usually works... DVD Player.app reports that no viable vidoe device was found (personally I don't care about the DVD Player.app problem, just wanted to put that out there for the heck of it)  
      Likely causes of: Bluetooth (BCM92046), WIFI (BCM943225HM) - So, I USED TO be able to turn on the WIFI from within Windows then reboot into Mac OS and have it work but I noticed recently that the indicator light for them extinguishes BEFORE it reboots now. When Windows or Android load, it lights up-- "No... really, captain obvious?!" --anyways working "No really Sherlock!" so OBVIOUSLY, the OS has to activate them... and preferably ignore the wireless switching button For the WIFI module, if you omit the 9 and HM in a search, results appear! Brightness - Will get reset to full "Bright light! Bright light!" when a "Load System Defaults" is applied from within the BIOS settings but like the WIFI and Bluetooth the OS will forcefully take control of it LAN (BCM57760) - I dunno...  when I search it, nothing comes up...  
      "Dude, what in the world is the point of this machine?" Cross platform software and driver development...
       
      Any help pertaining to the Bluetooth, WIFI, LAN, bizzar brightness and wake after sleep backlight issue would be wonderful... Thank you for your time and I hope that I helped anyone else out with some of their own issues pertaining to the Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 ZQ3 Medium-low model laptop...

      What you need to install

      - Running install of macOS on VMware -> Downloaded version 10.13 via torrent (search by "10.13 vmware" torrent). You can use a real Mac of an friend. My method only tested on Mavericks (10.9) and above.
      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger.
      - macOS High Sierra install app -> Downloaded via App Store inside the virtual machine. Downloaded version 10.13.2.
      - CloverEFI -> Also download inside the virtual machine. I used build 4334.
      - DSDT patch skills -> Needed to battery works. How to patch DSDT. Or you can download mine DSDT below, but would not recommend.


      How create the install disk
       
      Prepare flash drive:

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      If the Erase popup in Disk Utility don't work. Close it and run this in terminal:
       
       
      diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ Install /dev/diskX X is the number of the destination disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.

      Create install files in flash drive:

      Open terminal and run this command:
       
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction This will take about 30 minutes.

      Install bootloader:

      You need to format the EFI partition of the install flash drive to FAT32:
       
      sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI /dev/diskXs1 X is the number of the disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.
       
      Download the CloverEFI (used 4334) and install with this options on "Install macOS High Sierra":



      Options:
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - Drivers64UEFI - CsmVideoDxe-64
      - Drivers64UEFI - OsxAptioFixDrv-64

      Adjust the config.plist genereated:

      Will be created a partition named EFI. Edit the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist inside this new partition and change those values:

      - Alter value: GUI - ScreenResolution to 1366x768
      - Rename key: Graphics - #Inject -> Inject
      - Alter value: Graphics - Inject - ATI - FALSE
      - Alter value: Graphics - Inject - Intel - TRUE
      - Rename key: Graphics - #ig-platform-id -> ig-platform-id
      - Alter value: Graphics - ig-platform-id to 0x01660003
      - Alter value: KernelAndKextPatches - AppleIntelCPUPM to TRUE
      - Rename key: #KextsToPatch -> KextsToPatch
      - Remove all <dict>...</dict> in <array> inside KextsToPatch
      - Add <dict/> bellow in <array> inside KextsToPatch:
       
      <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HD 4000 brightness fix</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> EAcAABAHAAA= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> EhMAABITAAA= </data> </dict>  
      P.s.: I will provide below my config.plist as attachment.
       
      Add essentials Kexts:

      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/
       
      - Download the Smart Touchpad kext from here. I used the version 4.7 beta 5.
      - Download the HWSensors dmg and use the FakeSMC.kext from inside. I used the version 6.26.1440. This is very important. Can't boot without it.

      Put the Clover installer on the flash drive too.
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      BIOS Setup Configuration and Installation

      Bios configuration:
       
      - Shutdown the ultrabook and insert the flash drive on the left side on upper port (on the side Keystone hole).
      - Power on with F2 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to "Save & Exit" and press "Restore Defaults".
      - Go to "Advanced" tab and change VT-d to Disabled.
      - Go to "Save & Exit" again and select "Save Changes and Exit".
      - When ASUS logo appear, press and hold ESC to enter Boot Menu.
      - Select the flash drive named with UEFI prefix. In my case "UEFI: KingstonDataTraveler 2.0PMAP".
      - The clover menu will show. Use the arrow keys to mark the flash drive. The option name is "Boot OS X Install from Install macOS High Sierra", then press Enter.
      - If you did everything correctly, you will see the installation screen.
      BUG Note: I delete all entries from the list. With that, I could not add anything else. It just didn't work. I had to put some USB device so the list is not empty, so I can add a new entry. Strange thing...

      Format destination disk:

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "HD".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      If the Erase popup in Disk Utility don't work. Close it and run this in terminal:
       
      diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ HD /dev/diskX X is the number of the destination disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.

      Close Disk Utility.

      If the destination is SSD: Start installation without APFS conversion:

      Open Terminal and run:
       
      /Volumes/Image\ Volume/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/HD --converttoapfs NO --agreetolicense This will take about 20 minutes.

      If the destination is HDD: Start installation normally:

      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install:

      After first part install the system will reboot.

      In Clover main menu, press enter in "Boot macOS Install from Install macOS High Sierra" once again

      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader:
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your internal disk EFI parittion with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with "diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.

      Add Clover entry to UEFI:

      Now remove flash drive and restart the system. With F2 pressed to enter UEFI BIOS.

      - Go to "Boot" and press "Add New Boot Option".
      - Select "Add boot option", write CLOVER and press Enter.
      - In "Select Filesystem", choose the option that contains "HD". Like "PCI(1F|2)\DevicePath(Type 3, SubType 12)HD(Part1,Sig2a0127c1-ea5d-44d3-8967-57e59c1f0e3b)".
      - Select "Path for boot option", write EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi and press Enter.
      - Select "Create" and press enter.
      - Go to "Save & Exit" and select "Save Changes and Exit".

      Others Kexts:
       
      I strongly recommend always use newest versions. If you are too lazy, I attach on end of the post.
       
      Ethernet: AtherosE2200Ethernet 2.2.2
      Sound: VoodooHDA 2.9.0d10 (.kext only)
       
      You need to select the output there in System Preferences after reboot.
      Battery: ACPIBatteryManager by RehabMan (version 2017-1001). You need to path DSDT (below).
      Integrated Camera: AnyiSightCam
      USB 3.0 + Touchscreen: Attached USBs.kext below
       
      All kexts will placed inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/, mount again this partition (diskutil mount rdiskXs1) for it.
       
       
      Fine Adjustiment
       
      Enable FN keys
      Open "ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist":
      - Alter value: Fn keys Layout to ASUS
      - Alter value: Fn keys Mode to 3
      - Alter value: Preferences - Swap alt and windows key to false

      Sleep work, but Hibernate not. Disable it:
       
       
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 HDMI Audio
      Add <dict/>'s bellow in <array> inside KextsToPatch, in config.plist:
       
      <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HDMI-audio HD4000 0x01660003, port 0406</string> <key>Find</key> <data>BAYAAAAEAACBAAAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>BAYAAAAIAAAGAAAA</data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HDMI-audio HD4000 0x01660003, port 0304</string> <key>Find</key> <data>AwQAAAAEAACBAAAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>AwQAAAAIAAAGAAAA</data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HDMI-audio HD4000 0x01660003, port 0205</string> <key>Find</key> <data>AgUAAAAEAAAHBAAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>AgUAAAAIAAAGAAAA</data> </dict> DSDT Patchs
       
      First of all, extract your system DSDT.aml pressioning F4 on Clover boot menu. Will be stored in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin.
      Copy to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched and apply following patchs using MaciASL:

      Updating to 10.13.2:

      Just install Clover 4334 or more recent before install of the update.


       
      To do list
       
      - Replace VoodooHDA by aDummyHDA (AppleHDA Patcher).
       
      Can't make mic/output jack work. I don't know how fix the layout.
       
      - Hibernate
       
       
      Hibernate not work. The system not resume. (temporarily disabled with "pmset -a hibernatemode 0")
       
      Ps.: Sleep work.

      - Brightness and Audio adjustment by FN keys
       
      Need time to search DSDT patch.
       

      Attached files used in the installation. For God's sake, always use the newest versions.
       
       
      And last but not least
       
      I would like to thank the following community members, by making these dream possible:
      @crushers, @snatch, @apianti, @blackosx, @blusseau, @dmazar, @slice2009, @autumnrain, @phpdev32, @EMlyDinEsH, @RehabMan, @Scellow, @mitch_de, @Shailua, @Andy Vandijck, @maxfierke, @ArturXXX, @LexHimself, @brumas and all others members involved directly or indirectly.

      ACPI and Clover config for Acer Aspire v5-571PG
       
      Tested on Catalina 10.15.1 and Clover EFI 5098 (Should work on MacOS 10.9.x - 10.15.x)
       
      Not Working:
      - sd card reader
      - Atheros AR9462 (use a compatible USB wireless adapter, see below)
      - Touchscreen (MacOS 10.15 only)
       
       
      Notes:
      Disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Boot. Legacy Mode is recommended.  
      **To reset your BIOS, power on the pc and hold the power button for about 30-40 seconds or you can short G2101 (RAM SLOT 1)**
       
       
      About the Atheros card:
      You can install ATH9KFixup (you will also need additional patches on 10.14+ to restore Atheros support) to enable this card, however,
      it will break sleep on MacOS 10.14+, it can freeze your OS at any time and it can freeze your network settings.
      Because of its instability it is highly recommended to buy a USB wireless adapter.
       
      You can find a list of working adapters, and the drivers, here.
       
       
      Additional things you will need:
      Latest Clover config (AcerAspireV5-571pg - CCE Bank) from here CloverEFI (download) or OpenCore (download - Untested) WhateverGreen (download) VoodooPS2 (download) VirtualSMC + SMCBatteryManager (download) AppleALC (download) Lilu (download) Mieze Realtek RTL8111 (download)  
      CloverEFI drivers you will need:
      ApfsDriverLoader EmuVariableUefi FSInject DataHubDxe VBoxHfs (if you have hfs partitions)  
      Remember to install BIOS drivers if you enable Legaby Boot.
       
       
       
      Feel free to ask for help.
      Please send me a PM if you have fixes or improvements, thanks.
