Hi, Thank you for reading my post first,

my laptop specs:

acer swift5 laptop
intel i5-7200U
intel HD Graphics 620
8gb ddr3 ram
hp ex900 m.2 250gb


Bios setting:
Bios trackpad mode is "basic"

(when I turn it into advanced, my keyboard doesn't work)


What I've installed in my S/L/E is like this:
417025




just in case, I uploaded this picture as well:
417026







what I've done so far is

1. followed this "https://voodooi2c.github.io/#Installation/Installation"



417028

(Sorry for the language, I am Korean. Thx.)
My ACPI id is SB.PIC0.I2C1.TPAD




417027

this is my ACPI id's location from IORegExplorer and there is no IOInterruptSpecifiers, so I just skipped the lines under neath on the website
and just installed the kext they mentioned I should install.





2. followed this "https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-acer-swift-5-sf514-53t-whiskey-lake-macos10-14-5.277618/",
and I was able to get it like this:


417029

(Sorry for the language, I am Korean. Thx.)


Specifically what I did is I removed the plugin kexts, VoodooPS2touchpad.kext and VoodooPS2mouse.kext, in VoodooPS2Controller.kext to make keyboard work and dose not conflict with VoodooI2C.kext.
And then, I got that signal like the picture above.

but my trackpad, still doesn't work somehow....




3. I tried to adjust my DSDT following the posts above 1,2 and I found that my DSDT.dsl file is little different as others.

417030

There is TPL1 at SB.PCI0.I2C1 where TPAD should be seated




I was curious that where my TPAD is located and it was here:
417031


and I have no idea what I should do...


it's been 9days I tried to get the trackpad, but I think it's now out of my hand. It's like professional part I reckon.





I will attach my EFI and DSDT.dsl file. Plz give me a just little hand.
again, Sorry for my short English level, I am not a native English speaker... Thx!

Please use gen_debug.sh to collect a full troubleshooting archive.
Your Clover folder is not enough :)

and I am not sure if you need this as well, but just in case, I attach it too. Thx!!
Yeah, IOReg wasn't attached to the original archive because you didn't give Terminal accessibility access.
Your trackpad isn't operating in I2C mode, you should use 'Advanced'.
Once you set to Advanced, open Windows Device Manager and check if it's saying trackpad is connected via I2C (Do the same for keyboard, as you said it stops working when set to Advanced).

Hi, Okay, so I gotta set my trackpad setting to "Advanced" at Bios Mode.
But, what do you mean that "do the same for keyboard"?
You mean, I should check if my keyboard is connected via I2C as well?


Now, I mistakenly deleted my whole hackintosh on my laptop and I changed my SSD which windows is installed
(cause someone said that if I install Windows in different partition, the trackpad would work somehow, and I failed to install Windows on my different partition showing error when I install Windows)


I changed my Bios setting as default and the trackpad setting is changed to "Advanced".
Here's my Windows Device Manager setting and as you can see,
trackpad is now connected connected via I2C.
(my trackpad model is ELAN0511)
417195

But the Keyboard, I don't know which I should check for.


Please let me know which I should check on my keyboard at Windows Device Manager.
Thank you a lot!

You'll probably want to sort that out :p
No reason installing to a different drive/partition will help...
Once you finish setting the OS up, upload a new troubleshooting archive.

Cool. Tho the ACPI path is strange. The first character doesn't really belong...

But the Keyboard, I don't know which I should check for.

I'd look under 'Keyboards'.
