Hello. Sorry for my bad English. I have an acer swift 3 SF314-54G laptop. it has 4 digital microphones based on INTEL Smart Sound (specified in windows device manager like on the screenshot). It doesn't work on Mac OS. Do you have the same? Does it work?
Hey. I also have the swift 3 314-54g i5 8250u mx150 laptop, may I ask for your EFI? I have been using a someone stable EFI based from one posted in github (not the Arrows21 one) with some of my edits. However, I just can't get touchpad to work. Tried GPIO pinning and all that to no avail. Thanks in advance

@richardchiu I followed your post and got a very good catalina working on my system. In your original post#1, K. Battery patches, point 1, you mention "enabled associated SSDT patches"

Can you be more specific on which ones are those?

i have i5 8265u and did the fix with hackintool and still no hdmi.

I think also my computer mother board dont have native nvram but no sure so i am using rc script + emuvariable.efi it solve the problem of reboot after shutdown command. But still some issue with reboot command and sleep

for exemple i am trying to set the layout for my sound card alc 256 to 13 or 5 but every reboot its back to 3 so no sound :'(

I have trouble also trackpad is not forced i mean sometime i boot with trackpad working and sometimes not

I also have a weird behavior at boot screen is black i have to press F1 then 2 times "FN + F2" to have the loggin screen

touchscreen too is not working even after doing the patch in DSDT in hackintool touchscreen is not even showing his name in usb internal devices

After Catalina 10.15.5 update, HDMI broke and now screen goes blank and system becomes unresponsive (would probably reboot without debug=0x100). Anyone found a solution to that? The exact same configuration that worked flawlessly with 10.15.4 now has HDMI issues. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
