Ok. I have the same computer, same problem and here’s my fix. In clover, add the boot flag cpus=1, npci=0x3000. This should fix it, as ACPI error is referring to the os not knowing how many cpus there are. If it doesn’t work, let me know. I will help you.

Hi, 

Thanks for the reply, I got it to boot MacOS and as we speak, I am currently installing the operating system, but just one question. Will MacOS use just one core because the cpu is a quad-core and I expect for macOS to run great. I would like to get a answer because I'm leaving windows behind and use MACOS. 

Thanks either way, 

Retro.

It should use all cores. Mine is a dual-core, and it shows all of them in about this mac-system information. Let me know if you have my problems.

I also recommend just shrinking the windows partition using disk utility, because if something goes wrong, you can use that to restore it to glory.
