Thanks for keeping this thread alive and updated @deeveedee !
Line In is available in the audio configuration, but my mic doesn't work
I just updated kexts and used layout-id 20 with same results

On another topic OpenIntelWireless-Factory for Intel WiFi is getting better and more stable with each release. Note that you won't get full speed with this solution (e.g. under Windows 270 mbps download while OpenIntelWireless-Factory only 30mbps) and I still experience significant drops to crawl speed from time to time it is still much better than any USB WiFI solution

hello deeveedee,

thx 4 your great work!
your Clover EFI works out of the box :D.

do you allready tried OC?
i´ve got a working config 4 the 800 G3 mini. But i think, that some patches of mine are wrong because they won´t work with the G4.

Glad this thread is helping you! My 800 G4 Mini is working perfectly and stability / reliability is my priority right now, so I'm not venturing into OC or CLOVER r5123+ yet. I'm planning to let the Big Sur dust settle before my next big configuration change. Note that CLOVER r5122 (and my config.plist) employ OCQuirks. CLOVER r5123+ has incorporated OC's kext injection.

yes got problems wit 5123 too.
the reason i ask 4 OC is the big sur release.
but hopefully you will work 4 this. nobody else knows the hp g4 as you !!!

today i tried the g3 config because i just got the g4 today.
great, got something to play with :)

PS: i will try to get your patches work in OC
reason was that g3 is not able to sleep.

When running software builds on my EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini 65W (i7-8700), I'm observing CPU core temps as high as 79 deg. C. I'm wondering if I can coax some more performance out of this rig by delidding the i7-8700. I've delidded old socket 1156 CPUs (see here), but I'm a little nervous about delidding this fairly new i7-8700. Does anyone have any experience with delidding socket 1151 cpus and if so, do you have any advice? My 65W rig has an all copper heatsink with a "laptop style" cooling fan, so I'm wondering if the heatsink/fan could even dissipate more heat from the delidded cpu?

I have attached an updated EliteDesk800.zip archive (Rev 1.3) to Post #1. This update includes the latest Acidanthera kexts, removes unnecessary UHD 630 graphics properties from config.plist, replaces USBInjectAll.kext/SSDT-UIAC.aml with USBPorts.kext and changes AppleALC layout-id to 20 (from 28). The EFI in this archive is configured for CLOVER r5122.

As I described here, the extra graphics properties were not necessary after discovering that video issues described here were resolved by increasing video memory to 512MB (BIOS configuration).

See here for a discussion of USBPorts.kext. My posted USBPorts.kext includes the Bluetooth USB port.

If you use my posted config.plist, be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX values with your own values. Specifically, you will need to replace
  • RtVariables > MLB
  • SMBIOS > BoardSerialNumber
  • SMBIOS > SerialNumber
  • SMBIOS > SmUUID
  • SystemParameters > CustomUUID
You can use CLOVER Configurator to create these values if you're installing for the first time. If you would like to use my config.plist and you already have your own, copy/paste these values from your config.plist.

After experimenting with Acidanthera's NVMeFix.kext, I have found that my system does not require it. Future versions of the EliteDesk800.zip archive that I attach to Post #1 will no longer include this kext. In the future, if your system needs NVMeFix.kext (because of the M.2 NVMe SSDs that you installed, you will need to add the NVMeFix.kext yourself.

Note that at the time of this post, the EliteDesk800.zip archive attached to Post #1 still includes NVMeFix.kext.

Hi deeveedee.
Impressive post.

I own a HP 600 Prodesk G5 i3 9100T. Is your guide suitable for this one?
Do the Clover configuration/install steps must be performed on a Mac?

Thank you.

I personally own (and have thoroughly tested) the HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini 35W (CPU: i7-8700T) and 65W (CPU: I7-8700). Both have 32GB DDR4 RAM and boot from M.2 NVMe SSD. Both systems run Catalina 10.15.7 as described in this thread without any issues.

If the only difference between our systems is the CPU (your i5 vs. my i7), your system should work perfectly with my solution in this thread.
