What is working:
Dual boot with windows (Used dortania guide with 0.5.9 Opencore bootloader - Catalina 10.15.5)
Full GPU acceleration, HEVC encoding and Apple TV+ DRM (imacpro1,1 smbios with shikigva=128 boot arg)
All USB ports full speed (Used hackintool to get usb mapping kext)
Dual monitors (DP and DVI) - HDMI ports not tested
Bluetooth, Wifi, LAN Internet (Intelmausi), Internal Realtek Audio (AppleALC alcid=99) - added kexts to bootloader
NVRAM (after adding SSDT-PMC.aml), SSD Trim
Power management (Removed cfg lock, added SSDT-Plug.aml, and CPU Friend kexts)
Restart, Shutdown, Sleep, Hardware monitoring, etc.
imessage, Facetime, Webcam, icloud, connect to iphone, itunes etc.

Not working:
Intel gadget and istat crashed - shifted from virtualsmc to fakesmc with sensors and hwmonitor
Airdrop, Handoff, Sidecar

Need to test:
Amazon prime
UHD disk playback

BIOS Settings:
CSM/Fastboot/Serial port/Vt-d/Trusted computing/Wake on LAN - Disabled
Above 4G Decoding/XHCI handoff - Enabled
XMP profile=1

I am not a gamer. Wanted to build a decent machine for movies, some photo editing, video etc. Pretty much followed the OpenCore guide for kexts, drivers, etc. Dumped DSDT using Cover initially but couldn't disassemble it due to errors. So, I installed Windows first and used acpidump to get DSDT aml and dsl files.

Initially, I started with iMac19,1 suitable for my hardware. But couldn't make hardware acceleration to work. I can't enable iGPU as 9400F won't support it.

Total USB ports in Back Panel and Front Panel (2x USB3) is 16. The USB Type C is only shown under HS port and so that makes it 15 USB ports. Initially used XHCI-unsupported kext to install OS and then added USB mapping kext.
SSDT-AWAC.aml RTC fix is not needed for this board.

Link to most kexts used.

I think it's same with my system?
I was thinking about moving to OpenCore from Clover.
So I want to ask about the i5 9400F, don't have iGPU what about frambuffer, are you willing to teach me maybe making fake iGPU?
Also my USB al work full speed but in system information All Showing USB 3.1although I have made a USB mapping via Hackintool.

Can you share your EFI i will learn it.
