Hello guys, I’m very beginner on Hackintosh. I’ve downloaded DSDT for my gigabyte motherboard from site DSDT database. I don’t know how to deal with it. I must patch it in order to put it on “patched” folder? What are the steps?

I’m not trying to fix anything. Is it necessary for the system to work properly ? I also see some custom DSDT patches. Should I uncheck those patches ?

then you don't need a DSDT if your machine is working

no need to fix something that is not broken

there is a detailed guide here for DSDT patching if you think you need to go this route, it is for laptops but may give you an idea
