ROG GL553VD (OpenCore)

So, finally after how many hours of watching people making hackintoshes. I decided that it's time for me to ride the plane too.

My laptop specs are :

CPU : Intel Core i7-7700HQ GPU : Nvidia GTX 1050ti RAM : 8GB DDR4 2333mhz Storage : 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD

Ports : 1x HDMi, 1x type-c port, 2x usb 3 and 1x usb2

For the GPU, I don't need it for now because I'll be focusing with programming and very light photoshop/illustrator for Icons and images for the apps that we are developing.

For the wifi, I'm more of a ethernet person. But I have a wifi dongle do that I can still use it wirelessly.

Now, I'm planning for an openCore approach for this. I saw a github, ZiQiLN was the github handle. I think I can also peek from his configs to help me get through the installation.

My main concern is:

  1. Will I be able to use the 1TB HDD for secondary drive, for files only purposes?

  2. I'm not a gamer or heavy video editor, is it worth it?

  3. Will the HDMi port work? I know that it is optimus. Also, after reading some threads about my laptop, the GPU is hooked with the HDMi(?). What does that mean?

  4. Will that type-c port work? I might need it in the future.

I'm asking you guys since you guys have experience already. Thank you very much ! ☺️ Cheers!
