Create iMac 18,2 From Dell Inspiron DT 3668 i5-7400 Kaby Lake

I got a new Dell Inspiron DT3668 i5-7400 Kaby Lake PC for my daughter to play League of Legend and school. The Windows 10 actually produces 120 FPS on LOL, which is very good for $400 PC. My daughter likes the reliability of Mac OS, so I installed dual boot Windows 10 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6. Kaby Lake 59128086 chipset is new, and only Sierra version 10.12.6 supported it fully. It’s perfect timing since the 10.12.6 has just been released.

My iMac18,2 Config.plist – make sure to change serial# and others.

The important kexts to get this Kaby Lake graphics to boot without kernel panics that I encountered are : Lilu.kext (1.1.5), IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup.kext (1.1.8), IntelGraphicsFixup.kext (1.1.5), and Shiki.kext (2.0.3), shiki may be optional, but since all 4 worked, I didn’t try to remove any.

-Make sure to edit the Info.plist of all these kexts have the same OSBundleLibraries/as.vit9696.Lilu/string – either all 1.1.0 or 1.1.5 (current Lilu version).

lilu_osbundle_string 1.1.0     lilu_osbundle_string 1.1.5

Make sure in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/ only has 1 folder 10.12 and includes these 4 kexts and FakeSMC.kext from Rehabman.

Create Custom Clover Folder to boot.

Install macOS Sierra 10.12.6 to External USB hard drive.

Post macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and restore to Internal Hard drive.

After rebooting a few times, both Bluetooth and Wifi work.

    1. You don’t have supported Wifi module or Ethernet, you need to replace it or find the kext for both of them.

      1. installed corecapture and corecapturerecorder kext into s/l/e and deleted vanilla IO80211family and IO802011familyv2 kext from s/l/e and installed patched atheros into IO80211 contents /plugins folder to the efi mounted dir efi>clover>kext>other dir. rebot shows wifi on stats bar but not listing any networks it just searches n searches. even a manual SSID add fails.. thanks again for speedy reply im desperate due to days n days worth of searching. btw great post one of the few sources available regarding this same card.
