Has anyone successfully got Open Core running on an Alienware laptop?

  • I'm fairly new to actually trying to install an OpenCore Hackintosh, so I am not sure if this is a low-effort or stupid post, but has anyone managed to get an Alienware laptop working with OpenCore?
  • I'm running an Alienware 13 R3 with an Intel Core i5-6300HQ and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060( or an Intel HD Graphics 530 considering NVIDIA doesn't run on macOS).
  • Originally, I got a Memory pool allocation failure error but managed to fix that. Then I finally got it to appear like it was starting to boot up with the long verbose text, but it would never finish, and now I am getting a "halting on critical error" message. I think one of the possible issues is my BIOS settings. I disabled secure boot-up, switched AHCI, and have UEFI boot-up, but I can't find any setting for Above4GDecoding, Fast Boot, or CSM on my Aptio Setup Utility BIOS. They just don't appear anywhere in the BIOS.
  • Has anyone had any luck getting an Alienware to function? Any compatible Alienware Skylake Config.plist? I get that it may be easier to go with Clover, but I started with OpenCore and am determined to get it booting and it seems like its smarter in the long run of having a Hackintosh.
