It was a pain, a real pain to install this following Open Core guide it's just too many steps and information. You will need at least half a day to do it!
You also need a Window or Mac for some of the steps, Linux unfortunately is not enough :(

I think the craziest step to follow it the USB map (https://dortania.github.io/USB-Map-Guide/). This one I did not do it, it was too much for my knowledge...

Anyway, I finally got it running so here are the key points you should take into account if you have the same hardware:

BIOS configuration [MSI B350M Bazooka (MS-7A38)]:
  • Advanced \ PCI subsystem settings -> Above 4GB Memory : Disabled
  • Advanced \ ISN Configuration -> XHCI Handoff : Enabled
  • Advanced \ Windows OS Config -> CMS : UEFI

  • SSDT-EC.aml
  • SSDT-USBX.aml
  • HfsPlus.efi
  • OpenRuntime.efi
  • AppleALC.kext
  • AppleMCEReporterDisabler.kext
  • Lilu.kext
  • RealtekRTL8111.kext
  • VirtualSMC.kext
  • Kexts/WhateverGreen.kext

Boot parameters:

<string>-v debug=0x100 keepsyms=1 alcid=1 npci=0x3000</string>
<string>pt_PT:10</string> <=== This is for a Portuguese keyboard. See the guide to find out the layout for your own keyboard

SMBIOS: iMac14,2

I hope this information helps someone.
