B. How To Install
I am not good for make a tutorial, so i upload my CLOVER folder (zipped), just use it (overwrite your USB Installer's Clover Folder)
Set SATA Controller to AHCI at BIOS
Make sure your BIOS version is "300"
Set DVMT to 64MB
XHC set to "Smart AUTO"
C. Make a USB Installer with CreateInstallMedia method, install Clover Bootloader R4423 or above, then delete Clover Folder inside it and replace with mine
D. Normally for broadwell IGPU (IHD 5500), you only need to Inject Intel and set ig-platform-id=0x16160002 or 0x16260006. But some notebook will face RANDOM KERNEL PANIC or STUCK at IGPU log (hang) when you inject ig-platform-id. This is not DVMT Pre-Allocation Problem. I found the solution Just set FakeIGFX to 0x16268086, Tick Inject Intel and set ig-platform-id as 0x16260006 or 0x16160002. Now you will get QE/CI For me, i set those values at SSDT-1.aml (check my attachment file)
- Audio OUT and Mic

After i finished updating macOS High Sierra on HP x360 15-u011dx Haswell HD4400 i7-4510u, I started to update my daughter Dell Inspiron 7352 Broadwell HD5500 i7-5500u. It was a little harder but it works quite nicely. The new Clover is Buggy with the cache that cause "Error loading Kernel Cache..." that I had to re-install the OS. Kernel Panic all the time until I got the config.plist and kexts correctly. Now it's a perfect little 13" MacBook Air7,2. If you have anything thing with a "u" at the end of the CPU, don't use macbook pro, it doesn't do you any good.
I'll have full tutorial soon.
Make sure to have en0 built-in without Ethernet Built-in
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.
-El Capitan on Dell Inspiron 7352 Broadwell i7-5500u
-Create Clover boot partition using BootDiskUtility.
-Extract HFS from macOS Sierra using 7zip command line.
-Create macOS Sierra USB Installer with Clover 3974
-Install macOS Sierra and El Capitan on external usb drive before restore it to the internal hard drive.
-Post macOS Sierra Installation.
-Patch AppleHDA on Realtek ALC255.
-Patch DSDT & SSDT
The best patches to get this laptop to sleep/wake/audio/HDMI are (we don't need to patch all):
* Null Ethernet - set a real Mac Address - use the one for the original wifi that will be replaced.
* Rename _DSM to _XDSM.
* Audio Layout id = 13 = 0x0D.
* Fix WAK Arg0 V2.
* Fix IRQ.
* Fix SMBUS.
* Fix USB3_PRW 0x6D.
* Rename B0D3 to HDAU both DSDT and SSDT.
* Patch _Q1D and _Q1C for backlight keyboard.
-Install El Capitan 10.11.6 to Internal Hard Drive and Clover UEFI.
-Install Fuse to write to NTFS Windows Partition.
-Replace DW1560 Dual band Wifi and Bluetooth 4.0 BCM94352Z.

Not working (Sierra Pack 2.0): Wi-fi / Bluetooth. (Bluetooth works if using a VM to inject the FW) NVME Drive. (to discuss about using it, since that not supported "by this filespackage“, open a specific thread or use PMs) Nvidia Optimus 940MX GPU. (Optimus does not work on macOS at all)
Not working (High Sierra Pack 2.1): Wi-fi / Bluetooth. (Bluetooth works if using a VM to inject the FW) Nvidia Optimus 940MX GPU. (Optimus does not work on macOS at all)
WIP issues: To fix the USB lid bug, now sleep is enabled partially and this drains the battery faster than usual, only when sleeping obviously.
Steps (Sierra Pack 2.0):
Steps (High Sierra Pack 2.1):
When updating to new versions of the filepack: Remove all old files and install the new ones following the ReadMIs. Just remember to use the same serials you used before.
Don't use bios mods, other files with different patches or you'll get no help.
