it says I need windows. Can this be done without it?
It looks like that guide just uses it to remove ambiguity about which is the correct ACPI name for the touchpad device.

Right.

You don't really really need windows.

If I read the guide correctly, the only "necessary" physical replacement is wifi card?
How do you install the wifi card?

Does anyone has delay when dragging the window? How can I disable it?

As anyone running the BCM94352Z wifi card on the S340 ?
Will it run 100% ?

Thanks

I just installed 10.15.2 on an 81N8 very quickly without any issues (thanks OP!), but on shutdown I see VoodooPS2Keyboard is KP'ing. I remember I have had this problem before in Mojave because of a conflict with Voodoo2IC, and I avoided it by rolling back Rehabman's VoodooPS2controller version.

Are other people not also getting this KP? Is there any better solution?

Also, I see that there is a fake Ethernet connection created from the dummy kext, but I'm having issues with Facetime/iMessage on a fresh install even when setting up a brand new iCloud account. Other people have this working normally on their versions of this laptop, right?
