Thanks, Jhax01 to provide this amazing Guide. :clap::clap:
I followed this guide and I am very happy using My HP Elite X2 G2 with touch screen, just to help others I have explained here how I manage to do this.
Steps I followed to install on internal SSD without disturbing windows installation, my english is not verry good so i apologize in advance.
  1. Crate USB by using create install media command.
  2. Install the latest clover on install USB, I used Clover_v2.4k_r4920.pkg.
  3. Copy clover folder to install USB by replacing default clover folder attached here by Jhax01.
  4. Boot install USB and format external flash disk 32GB with GUID and Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
  5. Install on external USB, the installer will reboot before finishing 100 %.
  6. On next boot use installation USB for booting but select newly installed macos on flash disk.
  7. This will complete installation on external USB.
  8. The second reboot also select install USB to boot but select newly installed macos.
  9. Complete all installation settings.
  10. Mount EFI partition of both USB and copy EFI folder from installation USB to newly installed MACOS usb, from here install USB not require to boot anymore.
  11. Boot into windows and Copy EFI partition to internal SSD by using terabyte Image for Windows (x64) or simply create 200MB fat32 partition by using MiniTool Partition Wizard and copy EFI folder from external MACOS USB to internal SSD.
  12. From windows create a new partition in SSD after EFI partition 50GB or more in NTSF format to transfer MACOS from external USB to internal SSD.
  13. Boot external MACOS USB and install carbon copy cloner in external MACOS USB.
  14. Run disk utility and select NTFS partition created at step 12 and erase as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format.
  15. Copy external usb MACOS partition to newly created partition on SSD by using carbon copy cloner.
  16. Restart PC and select clover in boot menu from EFI partition created at step 11.
  17. MACOS is ready to play with a touchscreen.
  18. Enjoy.

You need to install the Bluetooth Kexts to /Library/Extensions as instructed in the guide. *Or* you can use BrcmFirmwareData if injecting from Clover.

I sold my G1 a couple years ago, but I doubt anything has changed. The fingerprint scanner doesn’t work on any Hackintosh afaik. There aren’t any drivers for that not to mention that Apple FP’s are proprietary. The SD card doesn’t work either. I’m told that the HP lt4112 wwan works but I have no experience with it myself. I have no TB3 devices and never tested it so I can’t answer that either. USB-C hotplug works fine. As far as I can recall, everything else was functional. Hopefully someone who has a G1 currently will chime in.

I wasn't suggesting one over the other. They each have their advantages/disadvantages, it really depends on your use case and what is important to you. This seems to be your first foray into the hackintosh world so look around the forums and it will be pretty clear that none of these hacks are perfect. If you're looking for something that will work "without any issue" and it needs to run macOS then I suggest you stick to the real Apple hardware. For myself, I don't mind tinkering when things go awry, but for my wife I always buy the real deal so there is zero frustration.
