Hi, I'm having an issue with booting the installer, where the installer takes forever (10mins-ish) to start, and then trackpad, trackpoint, and keyboard are all nonfunctional. I know this guide works for me because I have used it successfully before. I did check that I had VoodooPS2Controller installed, and I even redownloaded and replaced it in the Kexts/Other folder. I have tried both with and without the USBInjectAll kext.

Can anyone help?

Boot in verbose to find out what's causing the delay. To do that, on clover, press spacebar, tick the 'verbose', and there's another option to 'not restart in case of kernel panic'.

Guys, whenever I keep my laptop on sleep for a long time(a day or two) it doesn't wake up and crashes without booting into mac(10.14.5). On restarting the OS it displays this error:

panic(cpu 1 caller 0xffffff800cbc9973): "A kext releasing a(n) IOBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport has corrupted the registry."@/BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/xnu/xnu-4903.261.4/libkern/c++/OSObject.cpp:215

I am attaching the detailed error report along with the problem reporting files. Also, I have the proper setting set in BIOS.

Thanks.

So i have successfully booted Mojave 10.14.5 on my HP Probook 640 G1 (6x0)
Specs:
Core i7-4702MQ
HD 4600, 1366x768
HDD 500GB
8GB RAM
Everything works fine except for single and double click on trackpad and battery icons disappears when enabling it.
For trackpad:
The single tap and double tap work on the log in screen but as soon as i enter my password and log in it doesn't. It only moves the cursor and only scroll gestures work. It also does show trackpad settings on system preferences.
I have tried forcing HFS+J on the hard disk still the same, and still happens on APFS too. VoodooPS2controller is installed too. I have attached my EFI/CLOVER folder
For battery icon:
It just reverts when i enable it in SysPref.

Thanks for you time!

Ok so guys i think i have found the solution. Did some digging on github and found a trackpad.sh file that fixes the tap and gestures issues.
Link: https://github.com/boochtek/mac_config/blob/master/trackpad.sh To save right click on raw and choose save as or download link. To run the trackpad.sh: Right click>open with>other>utilities>terminal and open the script will run and complete, reboot and voila tap, tap and drag, three finger gestures, scrolling, etc. Note: If terminal is greyed out change Recommend apps to All Apps at the "Enable:" part

If you're using a conventional platter HDD (not a SSD), then you have to use HFS+J to get the battery to function properly, but if you absolutely have to use APFS on a HDD, then you need to add a boot flag argument to increase the delay of the battery subsystem kicking on before boot up to get the battery icon to function properly.

I'm on HFS+J on my HDD but I still have this problem. What boot flag exactly am I supposed to add to get this working? Any guides?
