This is the SSDT lists that I'm using.

  • SSDT-ALC256.aml : required to control audio.
  • SSDT-BRT6.aml : required to assign hot keys (Fn+F11, Fn+F12) for brightness control.
  • SSDT-DMAC.aml : DMA controller. Not sure if it's required. If not, I will remove it.
  • SSDT-GPRW.aml : required to fix USB instant wake up issue.
  • SSDT-I2C.aml : required for touch pad by VoodooI2C, disabling VoodooPS2Keyboard and Mouse.
  • SSDT-UIAC.aml : required to enable used USB ports (if not enabled by SMBIOS type) (optional).
  • SSDT-USBX.aml : required to limit USB power.
  • SSDT-XOSI.aml : required for touchpad.

In the config.list on page 1, there is no frame buffer stolenmen patch. Were you able to boot without it? Dell 5570 has 32MB DVMT-prealloc. Or did you patch the BIOS?

DMAC.aml , MCHC.aml and MEM2.aml are just adding devices that MacOS searches by default. I use them for getting as close to real Mac as possible.You can probably do without them.

You are so right!!! Attached corrected clover folder.

Thank you for bringing it up.

In my laptop I have patched DVMT-prealloc and DVMT-Max and also touchpad to get GPIO by default. If I'll find time I will make a BIOS patching guide.

What model of SSD are you using now? I want to add an NVME SSD to the 5570 hackintosh. But I don't know how to choose. I am a newbie

NVMe drives do not have power management like SATA does. (you will he experiencing 1.8w and higher while SATA puts you around 0.6w. Your call though )

Do you have 0.6w at idle?
Could you share your efi folder?
