I have a triple boot setup in my HP ProBook640 G2 (Win10-Catalina-Ubuntu), my lap has an intel AC 7265 WiFi+BT card, I got WiFi working with the method of putting the Airportitlwm.kext inside the plugins of the IO80211Family.kext and putting that in Clover/kexts/Other, but my problem is that the bluetooth doesn't work unless the device i'm pairing is almost touching the laptop and i have no AirDrop, I tried with the IntelBluetoothFirmware.kext and the IntelBluetoothInjector.kext, but it didn't fix my problem.

Does anyone knows a way to get the AirDrop working with my setup?, since it's not an error report i don't know which files to attach to help fix this.

For those having issues with high cpu and power usage, on HP Probook Laptops, 450G series install CPUFriend.kext. It helps in more refining power management. May work for other HP Laptops as well.

Make sure you have Lilu.kext installed as CPUFriend.kext is a lilu.kext plugin.

Hope this works

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.

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!

Quirks config.plist take a look for Clover, make sure you have good working clover first before switching to OC. that way you can compare and make the necessary changes. I have Clover 5139 running good.
Make sure you have SSDT-EC.aml and disable renames for EC0, EHC to EHO1 and 02, IGPU rename disabled, and HDEF rename disabled. HDAU needs to stay enabled for sound to work in most cases, if not disable in config.plist patches.

I have also OC .7.3 working and running but currently offline because of CMOS resets on this HP Laptop 450G2 for some reason. Not sure of the cause yet, RTC fixes and patches are not working for some reason.

I had Catalina installed with all systems working (Sound, Battery, WiFi, etc), but when I installed the latest security update I lost WiFi, I'm using the method of putting the AirportItlwm.kext inside the IO80211Family.kext/Content/Plugins and putting it on the Clover/kext/Others folder.

Any idea/suggestion as to how to get my WiFi back?
