I've posted the "Problem Reporting" files on my original post.. I'll upload them again.

Repo has been updated, and so you need to provide "Problem Reporting" files.
This attachment is missing EFI/Clover. Please read carefully.

I'm aware that my wifi is not compatible, I tried a few mini cards that I've they don't fit on the Zbook, they do fit on the Asus G750Jx. The Zbook Studio G3 seems to use a card even smaller than mini card..

Sounds like it is NGFF/M.2 (2230) as would be expected with a new laptop. Read post #1.

I don't have either of these options available to me while I'm away. Why can't I just edit the SMBIOS in Clover. I know it should boot when I only leave "MacBookPro11,1" in the identifier field but I'm getting the attached error instead.

No one is clairvoyant here. No idea without the files already requested. You probably corrupted the entire config.plist.

I'll debug the USB as recommended and post back.

Again thanks a lot!!

I tried to map the USB ports , the 3 USB V3 ports are working fine but the 2 Type C port work but I can't identify to which port they are mapped to. I mean, all the devices I plug in are usable and show up on IOreg under the Legacy session and not attached to any HS or SS port.
Code:
IOService:/IOResources/AppleUSBHostResources/AppleUSBLegacyRoot/AppleUSBXHCI@00000000
To test I've plugin a USB HDD, USB stick, a mouse receiver to the Type C port, all using a cable Type C to normal USB.
Code:
IOService:/IOResources/AppleUSBHostResources/AppleUSBLegacyRoot/AppleUSBXHCI@00000000/Microsoft® Nano Transceiver v1.0@00100000

Touchpad is not working yet.
The Toshiba XG3 SSD 512GB THNSN5512GPU7 M.2 2280 NVMe is working now after I changed the USB ports to the addresses found in the DSDT.
So, both M2 SSDs are working fine.. Toshiba and Kingston.[/code]

You need to edit the SSDT-USB-ZbookStudio-G3.dsl so only ports that actually connected to something are included.

USB-C should be UsbConnector 0x0a. You may have to guess on the port number, or use Windows to determine.

Might require some research on 8086:15b6...

Touchpad is not working yet.

Your trackpad appears to be ALPS (from ioreg). Surprising because HP usually uses Synaptics for this series of laptops.

Search for PS2 drivers appropriate for ALPS.

I never asked for clairvoyance. I don't need anyone to survey my clover folder, I just want to know if there is a way to edit the config.plist without a USB or separate computer. I already know that the SMBIOS is causing the boot issue. The SMBIOS editor in the Clover Bootloader will not change the .plist file.

The EFI partition is FAT32. It can be accessed from Windows or Linux.

Hey RehabMan,

today i update my Sister´s ProBook 450 G1 Haswell from earlier Yosemite install (with used ProBook Installer-Clover Edition) and transition to this hot patch setup and then with Major updates to El Capitan.

System works perfekt and everything is fine.

Information for you:

SSDT-KEY87 is the right one for ProBook 450 G1.
And i correct with the help of ioreg the Information USB Ports Location inside SSDT-USB-4x0-G1.dsl (see Attached File)

Thanks

github updated based on this feedback...

Changed the install_acpi.sh script to use KEY87.
Incorporated the comments regarding USB port locations.
