RehabMan, I hear you are an expert with getting the Intel HD 530 mobile IGPU to work on laptop? I am using latest Catalina 10.15.4 but have had no luck. Via Hakintool, I see two frame buffer patches for mobile HD 530 but have had no luck. System still shows “Display 8 MB” every time.
RehabMan has not been on these forums for about a year now. Are you using whatevergreen kext? That alone should fix your igpu without using any patches. You're looking at an old outdated guide.

I have a problem. I have installed El capitan on my lenovo 3 years ago about. Everything ok, but i didn't followed the efibootmgr steps with Linux, so, after each win update, i rename efibootmgr. Now, after so many time, i choose to do Linux steps, so i did it, but i understand that i should do only the first step, without -o argument step. Now my laptop is stucked. When i star clover, i have only 5 sec. to choose a drive, otherwise it freeze. Sometime it freeze before yet. I can't run Linux from USB, because if i boot from usb, it stuck after 5 sec that i power on the laptop. In config.plist there isn't a Default Volume Voice, so i add:
<key>DefaultVolume</key>
<string>El Capitan HDD</string> (my drive's name).
But i have the same problem yet. So what can i do? I can't boot Linux, and i have this problems for boot Win and OSX.
I tried also with UUID of OSX, founded with spacebar in clover, but no successo. Linux doesn't start. If i click some thing in clover, it freeze, only sometimes it boot osx. Also with - 1 timeout, it freeze on each option that i select or if i click some thing.

What should I do?
First thing, don't post for help in a FAQ. Start by putting your detailed hardware specs in your profile. Then start a new thread of your own in laptop support for the version of macOS you want to install.
