Thanks to the OP I successfully installed macOS 10.15.4 in my Acer SF314-52-552X. I made some config modifications and I used Clover but everything seems to be fine.
For those having heavy battery drain, I suggest to change the parameters of AppleALC in Clover:
- Audio Inject > NO
- In boot arguments add: alcid=3
Those fixed the CPU freq locked to max possible
Can u share ur clover EFI folder with us.?

Hi! I have a zenbook running 10.15.5 flawlessly with OpenCore and everything works (not sure on hdmi) except of course intel WiFi- I was wondering for OC what you had to do in particular to get the DW1560 operational? Thanks!

Hey, nice job! I have a problem. I’m still unable to use trackpad. I left all the config.plist and ACPI folder untouched (do I need to remove the .dsl files btw?), I did what you suggested, but absolutely nothing to do apparently. Let me know!

Hey, so I had same issue as you but I fixed it (actually I had even more issues but I got em all fixed except microphone), I will upload my EFI so u can use it if u want.

Thanks! Yes, all is working except microphone and I don’t understand why. Netflix isn’t working either, but it isn’t a problem for me

How do I inject the Radeon Vega SoftPowerPlayTable with OpenCore?

I managed to install Big Sur 11.2.2 on my SF-314-52. OpenCore 0.6.6, everything works: keyboard with caps lock led, function keys and brightness keys remapped; touchpad with custom gpi0 ssdt, wifi, bluetooth, igpu with fixed color banding, audio, usb, webcam, sleep/wake.
Card reader and fingerprint reader are not working as they weren't in Catalina.
I just swapped the Intel ssd with a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500 GB.
If I have time I will write a guide but, if someone wants to try, just follow the dortania guide and fill the PlatformInfo section
