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

For anyone looking for a working Clover setup for Dell 5584 without USB Type-C.
Attached my CLOVER folder.
Please generate new smbios information from clover configurator.

What works:
- UHD620 with HDMI output
- Ethernet
- ALC236 (use dialinsky ALCPlugFix script to fix audio in headphones)
- Sleep/Wake
- Bluetooth (yes, with built-in usb bluetooth)
- Brightness with Fn+S and Fn+B keys
- Trackpad and Touchscreen
-------------------------------------------------------------
- Built-in wireless not used (I use USB ethernet device)
- Intel NVME disabled (Mac installed on SATA SSD

Hello

I'm on the clouds :) Spent all day to install macOS on my SF514-53T. Firstly I try 10.15.3 Catalina with Clover for it, and got a lot of problems, like no sound.

Downloaded 10.15.7 Catalina and clover for it. And Jesus, everything flying, have sound, trackpad work much more better.

WI-FI working with intel 9560ngw on itlwm.kext.

Thank you RICHARDCHIU. Don't stop on making good hackintosh for ACER SWifT 5
