I'm having issues with CMOS resets when running Big Sur with Opencore.
I tried the DisableRTCchecksum in Quirks, that didn't help. Then I tested with RTCMemoryFixup.kext and the method in boot arguments. That didn't help. I'm wondering what other issues would cause the CMOS reset as the troubleshooting guide at Dortania doesn't seem to point to anything but RTC issues. I do not get Safemode. Just reset notice each time on reboots or startups.

Solved with SSDT-Time-master tool which created RTC patches

Issue with EC and EC0 when turning off the rename in config.plist from Rehabman's Project build and using SSDT-EC.aml I lose battery notification and Trackpad.
When enable the rename of EC0 to EC, the battery returns and the trackpad works. But the issue with this rename is a not go causing power issues down the road. Does anybody have a fix and encountering the same issues?

Rename EC0 to EC in the config.plist (enable or disable)
Enabled have battery icon in Top Bar and in Power or Energy changes in the System Preferences. SSDT-EC.aml loaded but seems to not work.

Disabled and using SSDT-EC.aml, no battery Icon in Top Bar and Energy in the System Preferences, trackpad offline or disabled.

I've tried other EC handlers side programs but had other issues like no wifi. side effects.

I'm using the original hot patch 4x0G2b.aml removed all the other enhancements and hotpatches from the original project.

I've attached the config.plist and SSDT-4x0G2b.aml, zipped

Thank you!
SOLVED with

renaming the SSDT-4x0G2b.aml specifically

EC to EC0
XHC to XHCI
EH01 to EHC1
EH02 to EHC2
Then delete the above written patches from config.plist ACPI>Patch
Opencore takes care of the renames with Lilu.kext combination.

Also delete the below:
HDEF delete the patch from config.plist>ACPI>Patch <> AppleALC.kext takes care of this
HDAU delete the patch from config.plist>ACPI>Patch <>AppleALC.kext takes care of this
GFX delete the patch from config.plist>ACPI>Patch <> Whatevergreen.kext takes care of this


Leave LPCB as is to match the patch in config.plist

Basically renamed them back to what's original in DSDT for the appropriate renames as all the renames are
taken care of by Opencore and the plugins Lilu, AppleALC, Whatevergreen.

Once the renames were taken care of was able to install ECEnabler.kext along with SSDT-EC.aml.
This Laptop having a two battery system. But works well without having to right SSDT-BATC.aml and another one
Took a lot of research. Upgrading from Mojave to Monterey, Big Sur.

But all works now.

in Monterey Apple, has changed the configuration, the way the OS handles Bluetooth. Have to wait for the appropriate hacks.

Also seems SSD drives with trim are being affected. Samsung EVO's seem to be affected by enabling trim.

Looking to buy a Crucial or WD SSD that has trim that works with Apple.

But all works now.

new again to hackintosh - the original post by rehabman has some limits in 2022, the last clover version used in the guide, and the newer version of clover in 2022.

for a new fresh install in 2022 of high sierra, mojave or newer mac osx,

use clover? (rehabmans method, but with the current newest version of clover?)

or open core ?

can some one point to an active or updated guide for, clover or open core, or both.

test machines are g1 probook

thanks

thanks for the reply, and pointing to the guide for open core

- appears to require a much higher technical and advanced knowledge, compared to this clover based guide by rehabman

- which is already super advanced imo.

maybe a new or updated version of this thread if there are people already have the know how specific to - HP ProBook/EliteBook/Zbook using Open Core (2022) / or Clover (2022) UEFI hotpatch

there may be a post or 2 with opencore already setup in this thread

-----If you weren't already aware, note that Clover actually replaced those parts of its internals which would otherwise be redundant by switching to relying on an included vendored copy of OpenCore as of Clover v5.1 r5124 all the way back on October 12th, 2020. (This also gave it Big Sur and Monterey support, for those who're fine with installing those macOS versions.)

Hi thanks for the guide , running high sierra on probook 4530s. Everything working absolutely perfect. My only concern is the cpu temperature which can go up to 85 degrees. I know this is within the limits of the cpu I'm using
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz Sandy Bridge - 2nd Generation Intel Core.
Cpu throttling working fine but wondered if there was a way to increase the fan speed, or am I worrying about nothing?
Thanks in advance for any replies

There is a fan mod by Don Grappler, don_grappler or so that has measurements of the actual temps under load. IIRC he posted diagrams. It's the FAN-SMOOTH or FAN-GRAP (or so) fan mod.
