How to get SMBios MacBookPro8,2 working on my Asus G73sw?

I succesfully installed MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 on my Asus G73sw laptop with the MacBookPro10,1 SMBios. My Hackintosh also work with the MacBookPro10,1 SMBios. The problem is that MacBookPro10,1 is for “Ivy Bridge” laptops and not for “Sandy Bridge” like mine.

 

My Asus G73sw laptop has an Intel I7-2630QM processor and a Nvidia GTX460m videocard. The SMBios that comes close to my specifications is the MacBookPro8,2 SMBios. I changed the SMBios to MacBookPro8,2 with CloverConfigurator, copied the config.plist to my EFI folder and reboot -> black screen.

 

Then I tried a few things to get the MacBookPro8,2 SMBios working:
- Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and add the below to KextToPatch
com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
BA050000 00
BA000000 00
Prevent AGDP from loading
Reboot -> Apple bar won’t load

 

- Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and changed productname to iMac13,2
Reboot -> Apple bar load but get a blackscreen

 

- Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and changed productname to iMac13,2 and add the below to KextToPatch
com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
BA050000 00
BA000000 00
Prevent AGDP from loading
Reboot -> laptop boots good

 

So the laptop boots with the MacBookPro8,2 SMBios when I changed the productname and add a few lines to my kextToPatch. Changing the productname isn’t the right solution I think. 

 

Can someone help me to get the MacBookPro8,2 SMBios working or is it no problem to stay on MacBookPro10,1 SMBios? Even this SMBios is for Ivy Bridge laptops and not Sandy Bridge.

Just stay on SMBIOS10,1 and let Clover generate C-states and P-states instead of the SSDT that pike script generate?
