Right, but updating it can get messy if you aren't 100% sure what you're doing. Hence me asking about an update :)
as long as you use ocvalidate on your config.plist and fix what is needed until there are no errors and you will be good to go

or i suppose you could just wait here and mash your refresh button and wait for someone to do the hard work for you

Already tested and confirmed working
About your HDMI fix, try the latest version and find out

I can't figure this out. I did a OC compare with the newest sample.config but I don't know what to do for it.

Screen shot attached.

Thank you!

Mine is updated. But it's showing my Desktop build, not my Laptop, which is a Dell XPS 9560 i5-7300 with 4k touch screen.

then change it please
Sorry, but Why? My main build is my desktop which is listed. It doesn’t let me add a second one. The sig options don’t allow for laptops from what I can tell.

What you have there listed is showing you what is missing from your current user config.plist file compared to the latest sample.plist. You are either supposed to add them in or not use the version that sample plist was designed for.
If it says 'missing key' that's what it means - that line or key or property is missing from the table under the section headed.

How are you editing your EFI config.plist. Are you using a Plist editor or Opencore Configurator?
If you are using Opencore Configurator you must use the version specified for your OC otherwise it may cause extra lines to be written to the config.plist XML table that can cause boot issues. Judging from the keys used, your target OC version seems to be 0.6.6 am I correct?

A good way around to achieving this would be to work with an existing OC 0.6.6. sample.plist, make a copy of it and edit the file with your current config.plist values and system configuration.
