Is it still showing the same error in verbose mode—or is it something else? Are the brightness controls working, by chance? If you've made any recent changes to your EFI folder kexts/Config.plist, might be worth sending along.

I will say that this is not how my machine usually handles things when I have to turn off inject intel—generally it still loads in 4K but only has a very small amount of memory and is zoomed out.
Well my Intel Wireless card went bad and wasn't responding and wouldn't turned on on Windows. I've sent it back to HP so when I have it back I will start over. If I remember correctly the resolution was in 4K when I started macOS from USB but not on the NVME SSD. I've probably mixed some things up in my EFI Folder. Question here, are the graphics handled by the Kext files or the DSDT SSDT files? I wonder. Thanks again for your amazing help Surely I will make a video when everything is working correctly.

Update on the sound: I stumbled upon an ALCPlugFix specifically for ALC 295, which appears to have made all four speakers start firing properly. (I've only had the bottom two firing for the longest time.) Headphones work, but internal mic doesn't. However, the better audio quality is noticeable. I've yet to run into scratchiness, but keeping an eye on it.

I'm currently using layout #1, which directly supports the Spectre-like HP Envy x360 in recent versions of AppleALC.
