@the-darkvoid I saw that you changed the MacBook model to 15,5 in your config.plist. Does this introduce problems or major benefits for i7200U users? Otherwise I have to stick with your old config and Macbook 14,4 profile...
MacBookPro15,2. It is the closest match to the i7-8550u processor. You can stay on MacBookPro14,2 should you prefer so. But ensure your CPUFriendDataProvider is matching the motherboard ID for the MacBookPro14,2 otherwise you might get weird results.

@the-darkvoid But the same setup works on 10.13. Have even clone your new files from your repo but I'm getting the same issues.

@jkbuha any thoughts on this and where to go from here? Thanks.
I had reached the optimum undervolting settings through trial and error, but all via UEFI shell as I was working across 3 different OSes. Suggest you do the same. The first post contains the variables that need to be undervolted (a bit outdated now, but still relevant). I wouldn't trust voltageshift because it will only work on what the MSR registers report, which I suspect is locked at a BIOS level unless the overclocking settings are enabled.

It's finally working. I had to install colver update on the EFI partition. Thanks
I think I understand your problem now.
You were booting from /EFI/BOOTX64.EFI, which was an old Clover instance.
The repo assumes you are booting from /EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.EFI, I'll update the documentation for others.

Speaking of models, I've got one of the 9360s with an i7-7560U. Which model would be appropriate for this CPU?

I feel really stupid asking this, but how would I generate a CPUFriendDataProvider.kext for my CPU mentioned above? (i7-7560U)

The plist files in the directory that CPUFriend asks for only go up to MacBookPro8,3. Is there something I'm missing?

Are you checking inside ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext? You should check inside X86PlatformPlugin.kext (mentioned in the CPUFriend instructions here)
