    [Guide] XPS 13 9350 - Catalina 10.15.5 - Clover - HotPatch - Simple/Clean (ish)

    Introduction With Catalina I took the opportunity to cleanup my XPS 13 Clover Config (used for Mojave) - to make it as simple/clean as possible. I am using hotpatching (no sorted order) and only installed minimal needed. The cleanup was made possible by the very extensive advances of Lilu.kext...

    << Solved >> Updating from mojave stuck in AppleNVMe assert faile

    yes it is just a fake ACPI device called EC (Embedded Controller) - Catalina just needs to find the ACPI device - - if you look at the disassembly the aml doesn't actually contain anything DefinitionBlock ("", "SSDT", 2, "hack", "EC", 0x00000000) { Device (_SB.EC) { Name...

    [SUCCESS] Asus Maximus VII Hero NVidia GTX970- Install guide - High Sierra 10.13.6

    gotcha, Still looks like a graphics hardware acceleration issue - I have no experience with configuring AMD cards and hackintosh you could start and look if it is a YouTube /vlc bloating issue by using a more light weight player and see if for example Ilina player can play without stuttering...

    Hey there, thanks for the comment! the results on geekbench when I first posted this (back in 2018) was with an earlier version of geek bench, version 3 I think - when I run the tests on geekbench 5 - the results are even lower that yours - I get 2929 - so I think you are good :)

    thanks.. yes as @blazinsmokey said only need plugin type 1 and a SMbios model - config.plist/ACPI/SSDT/Generate/PluginType=true (YES) (must use recent build of Clover) - use Haswell SMBIOS (or later)

    [SUCCESS] ASUS Maximus VII Hero - HIGH SIERRA - 10.13.4 - Custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext

    I don't see a custom ssdt.aml file for USBinjectall.kext in this config. (no .aml in clover/acpi/patched) so USB 3 ports are not being defined - see IOReg -pic no SSxports Also you have generic usbxhci.kext in there, not needed if you have custom aml and usbinjectall
