Im able to boot windows 10 from opencore 0.6.4.

I installed Windows after I installed MacOS, but on a separate m.2 SSD, and it boots perfectly into windows or MacOS
Can you share your EFI folder?

I'm using only one SSDT from here: https://github.com/hieplpvip/Asus-Zenbook-Hackintosh
It combines all of the SSDT's from this guide, but with some differences. With this Keyboard Backlight, Airplane Mode (F2) and Sleep (F1) are working

The SSDT's to look into to make Keyboard Backlight work are probably ASMC, FNKEYS and maybe ALS0. I also have more renames for functions keys in my config.plist
those 3 .aml files do not contain anything related to the FN keys, looks like it, and your SSDT's or EFI folder wont let my Laptop boot, so i am trying to get keyboard backlight to work for over a week now, still no succes

They do indeed, at least ASMC and FNKEYS. Try disabling them and you lose brightness control.
Modifying ASMC, I got the Keyboard Backlight widget to show when hitting Fn+F3-F4, but unfortunately no light. I also got Fn+F1 (sleep) and Fn+F2 (Airplane mode) to work.

Please try with the attached EFI folder
If that doesn't work you try with the KabyLake config (also attached). It's the one that works with my setup
Good luck!

Thank for the help, will look into it today. But i already tried to decompile all the .aml to .dsl but when I applied the f3 and f4 patches it said: 0 changes sow that was the problem

This is the problem, i can not apply the patches for F3 and F4, and booting with your EFI folder does not work sadly
