Why don't you use OpenCore? Works so much better.

@xiaoM4095 Thank you for the suggestion. I managed to do my first successful hackintosh using OpenCore. Im now looking for HDMI and USB fixes as they are not detected by my laptop.

Hey guys, i have successfully installed Catalina 10.15.4 on my y540 with efi from @xiaoM4095, i'm trying to make this thing work, i guess it'd good option to make available external monitor with this kinda cheap device.So after installing drivers ( i tried a lot different approaches from thread ), sadly still didn't get any video output, i decided to ask for help here because if i connect device via usb it doesn't appear as unknown usb device at System report ( i'm sure device works because i've tested on 2 windows laptops ), so i'm wondering is it issue on system, usb mode or smth, would appreciate any suggestions.

EDIT
Just after i wrote message above i accidentally touched usb inserted in laptop so it became injected on let's say 75% of it's length and device appeared between other usb in system report :lol:, so i just installed latest drivers for displaylink and it works :clap:

Using dnvme hotpatch, the nvme itself gets pretty hot in macos, but stays cool in windows

DNVME hotpatch is to block unsupported ssds from causing issues. You can disable this SSDT and update the NVMeFix.kext to the latest release. It fixed overheat issue.
