Hello everyone I’ve a little project, I have an acer travelmate p259 with Windows 10. I’ve inserted another ssd to install Mojave’s, could you please help me? I’ve Intel i5 6200u and Intel he graphics.
Just to confirm that the Intel Wireless card installed will never work with macOS. You need to replace it with a compatible Broadcom WiFi/BT card. I will have a look at your current WiFi card and see which Broadcom card would be a good replacement.
The Realtek Ethernet is a standard component, as the Intel HD 520 GPU, Memory and CPU.
What is the Screen Resolution of your laptop?
How many USB ports does it have, and which type USB 2 or USB 3?
What make/model is your Touchpad, Elan, Synaptics or other? (should say in Device Manager).
Can you confirm if your Audio is a Realtek ALC255 or ALC3263. (Vendor/Device ID above shows it as ALC255 but that Dev ID can also be for the ALC3263 codec)
Once your laptop is up and running, so you can install macOS I would confirm it will not be perfect, it will still be a work in progress. There will be quite a lot of work to do to get it running as well as it can, including installing specific kexts, tweaking your config.plist, creating a custom SSDT-UIAC.aml and SSDT-EC.aml, for your USB ports and power, patching your DSDT (for your battery and AC adapter as a minimum).
I have created a CLOVER folder that I think will work with your laptop, see attached zipped folder.
I have also attached a copy of the latest Clover Bootloader v2.5k_r5070 for you to use, when installing Clover to your USB installer. The CLOVER folder has been created to work with this version of Clover. It contains the following amendments:
SSDT-XOSI.aml and SSDT-PLNF.aml in /CLOVER/ACPI/Patched folder
Specific kexts that your laptop will need within /CLOVER/kexts/Other folder
Revised group of drivers within /CLOVER/drivers/UEFI folder
Revised config.plist for your Skylake CPU and HD520 IGPU, including common rename patches, USB port limit patches for Mojave 10.14.5/6.
You need to create a USB installer drive, preferably using the 'CreateInstallMedia' terminal command. I have assumed you will be installing Mojave 10.14.6.
Download a copy of Mojave to your Applications folder, assumed you have access to a real Mac or another Hack.
Run the following Terminal command to create a USB installer, with the USB named 'Untitled'
Look in device manager under windows for the Touchpad manufacturer/driver. Right click on the Windows Start icon, Device manager should be in the list of items shown. Open Device Manager and double-click on the mouse/touchpad icon, it should confirm the name of the device on one of the tabs on the window that opens.
The VoodooPS2Controller.kext that I included in the /CLOVER/kexts/Other folder will work with a Synaptics trackpad. It may need tweaking once you are up and running but it is the best kext for your track/touchpad.
Navigate to the Patch tab. Hackintool will show you what settings your system is using and if they need adjusting. Post a screenshot (press Cmd+shift+4 to take a screenshot) so I can see what it shows for your system.

The top and bottom windows in the screenshot above should match, as mine does, if you are using the correct Framebuffer/SMBIOS.
Hello, the screen is perfect, everything works, out of clover.
i have 2 ssd on my pc, the first one with windows 10 and the other where yesterday i've installed macos with clover, but when i boot i can only boot windows 10, the bios does not see the other ssd with mac os
You need to swap the two drives, so the macOS drive is recognised by the Bios as the primary drive. This will enable the Clover Bootloader. The Mojave and Windows 10 drives should both show up on the Clover boot screen and be selectable from the clover boot screen.
If the macOS drive is in your DVD slot, it may not be selectable/bootable. Selecting your DVD drive as the primary/first boot drive, so it is before the Windows drive in the boot list (even though the DVD drive is not installed) may allow your macOS drive to be booted first, without the need to swap the drives.
