- Restore OS X image to USB by createinstallmedia method
- Install Clover BootLoader as usually to your USB

From the files download
Clover Config - Place to EFI/CLOVER/
Kexts - Place files in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/other/
DSDT/SSDT's place to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched/

2. Setup Install

Bios settings
Disable UEFI Boot
Disable VT-D
Boot Using exciting flashdisk(NOT UEFI)

3. Post Installation 
1. Install Clover to your OS X recently installed with UEFI boot option plus install aptiofix v2 from Clover custom menu's
2. Place the Clover Config, DSDT/SSDT as the steps before 
3. Use kext installer to install below kexts to /S*/L*/Extensions
4. last step is re-enable UEFI boot from the bios

Or you can easyly follow the steps install from this video:


1.Restore OS X to Usb FlashDisk


2. Configure bios and install OS X

Why Not?

Easly update as usually then Wifi will NOT work. just replace the wifi kext with the patched one




Thats it. now you can enjoy your new hackintosh run on your Asus ROG GL552JX.
Thank you.
