1. You can try replace FakeSMC, its relatives kexts and ACPIBatteryManager with VirtualSMC + SMCBatteryManager

2. Remove the plugin kexts in VoodooPS2Controller.kext , i.e. VoodooPS2touchpad.kext and VoodooPS2mouse.kext to make keyboard work and dose not conflict with VoodooI2C.kext.

3.Remove VoodooI2CELAN.kext

i did sir and also did the patch but still does not work

Sorry, It is in the K. Battery Patches of my guide in the 1# post. And could you post your C/K/O. The one you previous post seems to be have some conflicts with FakeSMC.kext and ACPIBatteryManager seems to incompatile with voodooI2c.kext in some laptop. It should be replaced with virtualSMC.kext and SMCBatteryManager.kext. You can refer to # 30 post.

I think you should refer to post #1
3. Make Install USB
Install MacOS with the Guide of RehabMan to make a MacOS install USB
1. Copy essential kexts to the Clover/kexts/Other directory
2. Choose config_UHD630.plist file from this repository: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config as default config.plist at /EFI/Clover/config.plist of install USB. You can copy the EFI directory to replace the EFI directory of your HD
3.Update your clover to 4920. and 5099 in catalina 10.15.1
4. Post-install:
A. FIX black screen
adding hotpatches: SSDT-PNLFCFL.aml to Clover\ACPI\patched folder from hotpatch folder of RehabMan OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config-master.

@richardchiu I used the config_UHD630, kept same kexts and drivers as in Post #1, added compiled SSDT-PNLFCFL.aml to acpi/patched folder. The boot issue is same and stuck as before. Also tried Hackintool on a real mac to generate the additional patch as described in same post and add to clover, but it changed nothing.

Try install clover with RehabMan prebuild [Guide] Booting the OS X installer on LAPTOPS with Clover https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/clover/downloads/Clover_v2.4k_r4701.RM-4963.ca6cca7c.zip then update clover

Thanks, going to try that now. Just wanted to ask you more thing, does this error look due to USB3 or XHCI handoff issue that i read on some posts, or which device could it possible be so i can work with it?

ACPI Error [PCI0.XHC_.RHUB.SS07] AE_NOT_FOUND

There is no option in bios to disable XHCI handoff, otherwise would have tried it.

Thanks for all your support!

Succeed with installation on HP ProBook 430 G6
13.3", Intel Core i5 8265U 1.6ГГц, 16Гб, 256Гб SSD, Intel UHD Graphics 620, Free DOS 3.0, 7QL72ES

What works or at least seems to work (I'm not really confident with hackintosh):
- graphics and HDMI
- usb
- ethernet
- audio (in/out/jack), HDMI audio was not tested
- backlight
- android hotspot (network over android for wi-fi access)
- battery status (DSDT patch by hand)
- trackpad (read wiki to VodooPS2Controller kext)

Partially
- sleep (works oddly)

Not working
- card reader (Intel)
- M2 256 SSD (Micron 2200, mac simply won't boot with it in pci slot)
- Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (expected)

This guide to Acer Swift 5 really helped me, I also used some tips from this guide.
Some kexts and patches in my Clover folder are questionable, mostly for CPU and power management
Here is my EFI folder with native DS/SS DT in ACPI/origin
